Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer
monstersocks and I tried to have dinner at Mi Tierra last night but they were closing five minutes after we showed up. Hopefully they aren't going under.

We went to Ol Mexico instead and had some decent food. Nothing to get too excited about though.

Woke up very early this morning to what I think was carpet being installed in the apartment above mine. Not happy.

Gah! I hate that!

A little under a month ago the people down the hall had a party until about 4:00am, and then at about 7:30 there was a little old spanish man who decided that 7:30 was a good time to begin pounding on pipes.

I feel your pain.

Part of what makes this funny is that I recently got official notice of a noise complaint from my neighbor below me. Apparently the noise of my walking bothers him.

Another funny thing- while the carpet installers were pounding on the floor directly above my bed, my next-door neighbors started pounding on my wall, apparently thinking that I* was the one making all the noise.

Did you go let them know that you were, in fact, not the person making the noise? I would have, but then, I tend to be the sort that is a little on the agressive side.

Nope, I was still in bed at that point, hoping I could fall back asleep once the noise was done. I thought about dropping by later and saying, "Hi, I'm your neighbor. Were you banging on my wall?" but I never got around to doing it. Hopefully they complained to the management and were told about the carpet installation.

I sent a polite complaint to the management and they apologized. They also appreciated my suggestion about notifying people in nearby apartments when work like that is scheduled, so hopefully this won't be as much of a problem for the next person.

That would be cool if they DO notify you.

My prop. mngmnt are pretty crappy when it comes to treating their tennants beyond how well they have to treat them legally.

Fortunately I don't think they'll be installing any new carpet in the apartment above mine again anytime soon.

The apartment management in my current complex is generally pretty good. My only real gripe is their poor office hours (9-4 or 10-5 and only on weekdays).

that's pretty crappy.
