Angry Brain

Dumb Neighbors

I haven't been sleeping well for a couple of weeks now. At first I was just attributing it to having a bad night, or the heat, or maybe I'm just too stressed. Supporting the "just too stressed" theory, I've been noticing that my blood pressure is elevated. I tried going to bed earlier, trying to relax, nothing worked. I always woke up each morning with a feeling that I had slept poorly and had been disturbed repeatedly during the night. It was getting to the point where every morning I felt faintly ill, in that "I need more sleep" kind of way.

I finally figured out why.

At, oh, about 1 AM I was awake yet again, staring at the ceiling and wondering why. And then I realized something.

The (&$#@! downstairs neighbors were still playing their ^(&$^@# music too loud. I could hear it, and that was what was waking me up. Ah-ha!

(They've recently taken to playing music in their bedroom. Mine is directly above it, and the sound comes up through my floor very nicely, thank you.)

Unable to get back to sleep, I went downstairs and asked them to turn it off. They say "oh, okay." (No appologizing for waking me up at 1 in the bloody morning, but whatever.)

It all seems fine until I settle in to go back to sleep. And then slowly I start becoming aware of a rhythmic pounding... Oh. They didn't turn it off, they just turned it down. Look, fuckhead, what part of OFF didn't you understand!?! What part of "pissed-off upstairs neighbor knocking on your door at 1 AM" wasn't clear??

So now I'm out in the living room, hoping that maybe out here, I can get some sleep. Of course, it just so happens that they decided to finally do something about the wet laundry that has been sitting on top of the drier for at least four days (that I can account for.) It seems only in character that they decide to do this in the middle of the night.

I want my house. I want my house so that next time the neighbors underneath me make noise in the middle of the night I can fumigate their little asses and kill them and no one is going to send me to jail over it. Grr!!

While Kuuga hasn't grabbed me as quickly as Agito did, it's shaping out to be quite a fun series.

*scritches head* Not sure what it says about me, but there it is.
