earthquake?

nope…not tonite.

last sunday morning, i’d been awake for all of 10 minutes and was standing in the kitchen waiting for my toast to pop up from the toaster. there was a loud thud and the wall shook. my first thought was ‘stupid neighbors!’ then i realized the apartment was still shaking and that my spices were falling off the back of the stove. it was an earthquake–not the noisy neighbors. we had another one midweek while i was at the office.

tonite, i came home after 9 p from friends where i’d been in the hot tub and out by the fire pit. i took a quick shower and then curled up on the couch to watch a movie. i was relaxed and comfy and dozed off while watching my movie…and i awoke to a loud thud and things vibrating. after this week, my first thought was ‘earthquake!’. then i realized there was a pattern to the thuds and vibrations… it’s back to ‘stupid neighbors and their surround sound!’.

it’s after midnight now and they’re still at it… i’ll chat with our complex manager tomorrow. maybe i should be extra chipper in the morning and rock out while i get ready for church.

    If you complain every time they do it, then the manager will be able to do something (threaten them with the police or something like that – it usually works). If you just complain directly to the neighbors, nothing will change … : (
