- Wedding: September 2013
So this is an annoying neighbour vent! I live in a condo and for some reason this neighbour from day 1, used a mallett on whatever she was cooking and never put anything between the thing she was pounding and the counter.
So every time she pounded (15-20 mins at a time) it literally vibrated into my condo (through concrete flipping walls!). If it was during dinner time I just let it go…but alot of the times it was around 11pm and it woke my and my husband up! I asked her many times to be quieter or to do it earlier…never stuck. Complained to the condo board, again never stuck.
Then at 5am one morning guess what woke us up…I was pissed off and yes I did storm over and banged on her door…she wouldn’t answer and I yelled (not proud of it) that this was it for me and I will not tolerate this anymore.
I had a very angry conversation with our condo board and they finally imposed a fine on her if she did it again (she had several noise complaints) and we finally got some peace!
Point is, we do not like eachother…now onto yesterday. Our condo had a company in to clean the venting and I am home eating my lunch. My door is open about 6 inches to allow his pipe line in and all of a sudden I see this woman in my doorway proceeding to enter. I stop her and ask her what she is doing (she is now in my entryway, having only knocked on the door once and then proceeded to just enter). She said she was there to speak with the cleaning person to make her own appointment. I told her he was busy and I am eating and to please wait her turn or until he is back out in the hallway finished (his equipment is noisy in the room he is working in, so he would have to go into the hallways anyways to turn it off and then speak with her plus its a small space and I didn’t want to interrupt him).
She then stood there saying “well I just need to speak to him to set up the appointment” and I again repeated I was not permitting her any further into my home as I was having lunch and the guy’s stuff is very noisy and I don’t want to interrupt him so she can listen for when the machine finishes (means he is in the hall) and speak to him then.
She then got all huffy with me and blamed me for her not being able to setup an appointment and just kept standing there until I told her enough is enough I am eating my lunch please leave or I will get the superintendent and complain she is not leaving (results in a fine for her cause of all the violatoins).
I am just so irritated because had I not been home would she just have come in and tapped him on the shoulder in MY house. You do not just knock and enter into someone’s home without an invitation and had I not stood up and blocked her entry further into my living room I bet she would have come right in!
