A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Dual format: I just wanted to share with all of you what I just printed out on my printer:


Hello,

I live in the condo below you. I work nights. I would really appreciate it if you would not play your stereo so loud that I can easily sing along to the lyrics so early in the morning.

Thanks,
Matt Hoy


I banged on the door -- that didn't work. May still be in the shower. It's not as loud in the living room. So I'm going to try to get some more sleep on the couch. $%^&*

9:16 AM

Comments:
I had that problem once. I handled it exactly the same way -- One morning I got sick of all the noise, so I wrote a nice note to my neigbor, and slipped it in his door on my way to work.

Amazingly, it worked.
 
Used to live above people who were insane. They would fight at 2:00AM and throw things around (a combination of 9 to 14 year old boys and girls).

I would take out a 16 pound bowling ball and bounce it on the carpeted floor like a basketball (they bounce surprisingly well.)

Anyway, if you're downatairs and are sane you hear this overhead, and think "Oh, we're being too loud, let's knock it off."

Nope. They kept makign noise for months, until I moved out.

They probably still live there, and are still driving their neighbors nuts.

I'll never buy a condo. Ever.
