Grumpy Monday Post: Dear Passive-Aggressive Neighbor Who Leaves Obsequious Notes,
No, I am not just making noise to annoy you, I am making noise because
that's what happens when one cleans one's home. Vacuums are noisy.
Cleaning requires walking around. And I am polite enough to limit my
cleaning activities to the hours between 11am and 8pm. We can discuss
alternatives, but unless they involve YOU quietly sweeping and scrubbing
MY apartment, I suggest you invest in some earplugs so that my
elephantine footfalls and cataclysmic vacuum noises do not irritate your
And here I was feeling virtuous because I'd actually mustered the energy to vacuum and do a load of laundry!
