Quirky Tidbits: LOUD NEIGHBOR

Constantly, religiously. She steps out on her balcony, which is about fifty feet across the courtyard from mine and just talks (loud) and talks (loud) and TALKS!


So yeh I know lots about her. Her relationship with her husband (he often sits there meekly beside her uhhhhhhhh listening). Last night she debated him (loudly) whether she should include cilantro in the chili she was making. He really didn’t have a preference, at least from I heard (only her).

Her brother “up north” has some kind of crisis and she told him (on the phone) that she’s WAY WAY too busy to “listen to it”. She said this (loudly) over and over.

I wondered a bit about that.

And her kid (he’s like 7) apparently is wearing her out right now, what with all his planned activities and she just WORKS TOO HARD. Yeh I heard her saying this (loudly) into the kitchen through the (always) open door.

There’s lots and lots and LOTS of other things I know but whatever.

Mostly I just drone it out…

  1. Oh my goodness, this would drive me INSANE!!!! Her poor husband and child, (who will hear in no uncertain terms what a drain HE is on her busy lifestyle, no doubt.) Sigh. You might have to move, kiddo.

  2. I’ve had neighbors like that. My recommendation? Find the longest, most monotonous song you can (techno tends to work well with this, especially songs in the 6+ minutes range) and put it on as loud as you can. When she comes to complain, as she almost inevitably will, tell her you find her constant blather about the inconsequential minutiae of her life as irritating as she finds your music. It’s amazing how fast people tend to retreat when they realize one really does equate to the other. πŸ™‚

  3. Thanks for reading Sherry Blue and J.S. The best about having this lady as a neighbor is she gave me fodder to write this ditty πŸ™‚ And I’m not exaggerating, it’s quite constant. As a matter of fact it’s 5:20 AM now and still quiet.

    I usually hear her when she wakes up, around 5:45. That’s when it all starts each day! πŸ™‚

    Again, appreciate your time.


We would love to hear your thoughts :)
