    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.

    When we moved into our apartment it was made crystal clear that they had a hard NO PETS policy. We had our rats at the time and eventually had to rehome them, which killlllled me. I loved those little rats so much. Anyway, after our on-site PM passed away and the new one moved in, all the complex rules have gone to shit. The new PM is awful (I’m sure you all remember our flood drama) and just doesn’t give a shit about anything. Recently we’ve noticed that there are at least four tenants with pets now! Birds, cats, and a dog! These are tenants that have lived here for quite awhile too.

    I really don’t want to be that person and rat them out to the main office, but like, wtf?! I’d love to know if there was a policy change we weren’t made aware of or if people are just saying fuck it because the on-site is an idiot. *shrug* I’m going to stay in my lane, but I am very BEC about it.

    Sorry but I lol’d at this part. On a serious note that sucks and it is completely unfair for other people get to have pets if that’s the policy.

    I think one of my neighbors is watching a recording of the game. There are a lot of short bursts of screaming, and he just now started chanting DE-FENSE for 15sec.

    We met the new neighbor on the non attached side yesterday and she seems really nice! She's a little old lady and seems to be good friends with the neighbor whose house is attached to ours, and you could tell she was relieved we were repairing the fence on our boundary. She seems keen on things being kept nice which is a HUGE relief after some of the neighbors we've had in our rental flat. The lady attached to us isn't around a lot because she's taking care of her mother but hopefully we'll see her soon.

    The village has a reputation for being where a lot of old people live which is true (and nice), but I've also noticed a lot of the little cottages have young people like us with or without little kids. It's a nice combination.

    That sounds like our neighborhood @A. Ham. We have some younger people with families and some older folks. It's a good blend.

    One of the buildings across from us is a rental with I think 3 or 4 units. Nobody took their the trash to the curb at last garbage day. Two of the cans are knocked over to the side and has been that way for days. I saw a dude walk right past it 2 days ago and he didn't even bother. There have been rats running on the trash too. Uugh. Whyyyy? These are the same people who had a small drinking get together while they only half assed maintained social distancing outside on their steps and porch. CLEAN UP YOUR TRASH.
