    I guess that’s better than being so desperate for guests that you’re going to barge into people’s homes.

    This is how you do it. One day, if I ever own a home, I will have massive Halloween parties that involve basically turning the whole house and yard into a haunted house and inviting the entire block. Neighbours who mistakenly think they don't want to be involved will knock on the door to complain about the noise and I will put a beer in their hand and thank them for coming. :jack: :cheers:

    Oh man, I miss friendly places where the neighbors are invited to parties, even if it's just to pacify them about noise complaints. V, I'll be right over.

    ETA I'm not trying to minimize the original party post!

    Minor compared to Trash Heap, but it is so annoying to be home sick, told to rest by the doctor, and the asshole downstairs is playing music so loud it's coming up through the floor again. He's not a reasonable character either so I just have to hope he gets sick of it soon.

    This same asshole is setting off firecrackers about ten feet outside my window. No wonder we haven't seen the cats all week.

    He didn't blow his whole load on Tuesday? You're doing it wrong, Noise Monster.

    As far as I know he didn't do any on Tuesday! It gets dark before I get home though so he could have I guess.

    He doesn't work. Maybe time and dates mean less when every day is a mix of smoking a lot and playing loud music.

    Not our immediate neighbor but last night was A's work Christmas drinks and we found out another American who is a senior manager there also lives in the village we are buying in. She invited us to a party next week! She and A don't really interact at work much so it seems like a friendly village like we thought. Def the right choice to be buying the cheapest house in the nicest neighborhood.

    We have a shared laundry and one couple that lives here apparently doesn't set a timer. I check 2 hours ago and there was a load in the washer done and just sitting. Checked an hour later and it was running in the dryer. Checked just now and there is a load in the dryer just sitting and load in the washer just sitting. The dryer only takes 45 minutes so there is at least an hour and 15 minutes of being a selfish asshole built in there. This is the 3rd time I've been unable to do laundry because of this and last time the laundry sat done for 2 hours!!

    1 hour done is when I would take their clothes out and use the machine. How annoying.

    I am totally guilty of forgetting my laundry halfway through (just did it today) but thankfully now it only annoys Z.

    I'm guilty of that as well. I'd leave a note so they are aware someone noticed and was inconvenienced

    J is anti leaving a note because he thinks they will mess with our laundry. I left and went to a brewery. I’ll try again when I get home.

    @Imabug1002 I wouldn't sign the note so they didn't know who to retaliate against. Unless there's few enough people sharing it would be obvious

    I was always that person who took your shit out of the wash/dryer when it was done in college because I don’t have time for that bullshit.

    So I have this neighbor who I find super creepy. He's always trying to force me to talk to him, to the point where I will go completely out of my way to avoid him if I see him outside. But he has literally never attempted to speak with R at all, even though his excuse for always cornering me to talk is that he likes to be neighborly. I think I might have talked about him in the pets thread because he's previously complained to me about my dogs peeing in the grass.

    Anyway, our building is set up where the shared walkway splits into a T with our doors at the end, and our kitchen windows are in the middle. So it's basically like my door, my kitchen window, the shared walkway, his kitchen window, his door.

    He has for some reason started hanging out in front of, or very close, to my kitchen window. He'll be out there whistling or talking on the phone, which then pisses off my dog who starts barking, which will wake F.

    I'm not sure what to do because I can't help but feel like he's purposefully doing this to get me to talk to him?

    Damn that’s creepy AF. I dunno. That’s way worse than our old creepy neighbor that we always avoided. We could just run in the garage though.

    It’s 6 apartments so not that big. But if I put my laundry in right after they might know.

    @Imabug1002 Do you rent? Can you talk to the property management? This is a somewhat common issue in my complex (25 units though) and we all get written notices every now and then to remember to time laundry as a courtesy to other tenants. It gets the culprits’ attention. For awhile at least!

    @hellohelloagain maybe send R out there to chit chat with Creeper until he gets the hint? I don't mean talk about how he's a creepy asshole but just about the weather or how paint drying is so fucking fascinating. Send R out everytime. At least it'll stop the whistling.

    Yes we do. I should say something since they send out notes about stupid stuff all the time. The other day, they sent notes to everyone in all building that someone in a specific building was leaving their garbage in the common area vs taking it to the dumpster. Public shaming for sure.
