It’s summertime, so we have our windows open all day (we only have one a/c unit in the bedroom and it’s really old and loud). That means we get to hear the comings and goings of all our neighbors. They’re ok for the most part, but there are two that particularly grate on our nerves.
One is an old guy. I have no idea what he looks like, because I’ve only ever heard him. Every morning he sits outside somewhere and spends a good half hour hawking up spit. HAWK. HAWK. HAWWWWWWWWWWWWK. The volume rises and falls and rises again, until finally he’s satisfied and goes back inside.
The other is a middle aged lady who has two yappy dogs. These dogs yap at the slightest provocation and she compounds the problem by yelling at them,. “BE QUIET! BE QUIET OR ELSE!” Of course that just encourages them even more. If that weren’t enough, she is addicted to shopping online and gets deliveries to her door every single day. And she doesn’t have a doorbell, so the delivery guy just stands outside her gate and yells her name over and over again at the top of his voice, which of course drives the dogs into a barking frenzy.
I really want to move out of this neighborhood, but the rent is cheap and we’re trying to save money. So I must endure mucous hawking and dog yapping and deliverymen bellowing for the time being. :mad:
