I surrender. I'm just going to ignore her. This last time when I got home from my last surgery, hadn't been in the door for 5 minutes. I flipped a shoe off onto the floor. Sure enough...BANG! BANG! BANG! And I was in a mood.
I stood up and STOMPED on the floor. Just once. Just to show her I wasn't stomping around up here. And... BANG! BANG! BANG!
Dude, I'm walking on eggshells up here most of the time. For someone that weighs (or did) 265 Lbs., I step pretty lightly anyway.
Took my subwoofer and put it in my storage unit. Moved my speakers (Bose 301's) to my shelving units which really helps with the vibration through the floor.
If I drop something on the floor, she bangs on the ceiling.
Sometimes if I sit in one of my dining room chairs, she bangs.
If I vacuum my wood floors, she bangs.
If I flip my shoes off, she bangs.
If I close my (any door really) door enthusiasticly, she bangs.
Sometimes if I just close the fridge or the dishwasher or the oven, she frickin' bangs.
If I get up at 430 in the morning and misstep, she bangs. But I'll give her this one. *grins*
Half the time I wear headphones around here. If you call or ping me and I don't pickup when I'm home, I'm likely wearing headphones of some sort. I have a couple of different pairs. Especially if I'm gaming. Just to be considerate. I don't like wearing them all the time.
And when gaming if you have Dolby 5.1 surround hooked up, a lot of the time you can hear something creeping up behind you in enough time to turn around and BLAST the HELL out of em! Heh. Well Not for me. Not at the present time.
Swear to God, she must never have lived in an apartment before. She does seem to be a young'un. Apartments are NOT silent. Unless you live on the top floor. Like I DO. Why? Because I didn't want a heard of elephants walking above me. Something perhaps she should have considered. I also go my apt on a stairwell because then I wouldn't have a neighbor on that side either.
This is the kind of crap that will drive me to a townhome or low level condo. Jeebus.
But the Mole in the office tells me he doesn't think she'll renew her lease. Please frickin' MOVE, already.
Honestly she is the worst effin' neighbor I've had in quite sometime. Must walk around with a damned broom in her hand. *grins* Considered going down to ask her what her problem REALLY is, but fuck it. Wouldn't do any good any way. Probably just piss BOTH of us off.
