Monday Trivia

Laundry machines should not be run at 5:30 in the morning in an apartment
building. That's all. I guess I just don't understand people or I'm too

In any case, I'm not giving my score this morning because masterofmusings isn't home yet and therefore hasn't done the
questions, and I don't want him to know what I got until after he's done
them. So,
I'll just give you the questions

Apartments Suck!!!

Just once I'd like to live in an apartment building where the people above
me are at least halfway considerate. I've written about these people before,
but I'm doing it again because I'm not pleased.

I had a hard time getting to sleep last night. Putting myself flat in bed
made breathing difficult for some reason, so after trying for about an hour
I moved out to my couch where I finally fell asleep around midnight.

5:00 AM comes and I start to hear thumping and stomping from upstairs. I've
got this family's routine down, and this is definitely not the normal
routine, especially when she started running her washer at 5:30. By 6:00 AM,
the kids were running around screaming and making all kinds of noise, and
she wasn't even making any sort of attempt to quiet them down. Normally,
when she attempts it, I can hear her since she yells at them at top volume.
This lady seriously has no control over her kids. Calling management does
absolutely no good because, although they attempt to do something about it,
nothing changes. She's home during the day, and there's absolutely no reason
why she has to throw her laundry in at 5:30. I'm waiting for my very large
living room window to crack due to all the thumping. It's been doing a lot
of rattling already, and I can't imagine that it's going to hold forever. Is
that what it's going to take to get somewhere with these people? I would
love, more than anything else, to get a house where I wouldn't have to deal
with this kind of stuff. But considering that that's not going to happen,
how about a little bit of consideration and common sense instead? Sadly, I
suspect I'm asking too much.
