  • Mood:
I live in an apartment. I also work from home, which means I get to sleep pretty much as late as I want.

The last two mornings in a row, the people next door have forgotten to turn off their alarm clock before they leave. Which means it beeps, and beeps, and beeps, for an hour, and obviously I can hear it through the wall.

Today, before I went out to run errands, I went over there to see if someone was home. No one was, so I left a brief note that said, "Please remember to switch off your alarm clock in the mornings before you leave. Thanks! -Your Neighbor".

Now, I debated whether I should leave a note at all, if it was too passive aggressive-y, but decided we're all adults, I wasn't calling them horrible people, just asking that they be a little more considerate. It's also difficult to tell what hours they keep, so who knows how many more mornings I would have been awakened by someone else's clock before I caught them at home.

I came home to a note on my door that said, "Well excuse me I will make sure not to let it happen again, and if it does you can shove it up your ass! Thanks :) Neighbor".

So tell me, TQC, where did it all go so horribly wrong? Or, what should I have done differently?
