I’ve owned a couple houses in my life, but a lot of my living has been done in apartment buildings. I like that lifestyle just fine but it does come with its drawbacks. I’m having one right now in the building where I live in Covington, Kentucky.
This is not a major complaint, but if I feel the urge to write about it, that means it’s on my mind more than it should be. It’s rising to the surface more or less.
On the floor where I live, I have a couple neighbors who are very nice and friendly and all that, but they talk loud and they like to do that in the hall. One of these people is an older lady and I think she’s hard of hearing, so maybe that accounts for the loud voice. The other person is just loud by nature.
I’m not sure what prompts their loud voices in the hallway, but voices carry. I don’t think they’re doing it on purpose and they’re not doing it late at night, but they have woke me up on occasion, like last night when I went to bed a little early — around eleven. Maybe that’s why I’m writing about it today, because last night I felt annoyed by it.
Is there such a thing as hallway etiquette? Apparently. I did a Google search and found this. It covers the subject a little bit.
Now I don’t want you to think I’m blowing this out of proportion. I like where I live just fine and I’ll find a way to deal with this little problem I’m having. When I see these people, I have no plans today to yell out, “Hey, shut up you f**king a**holes!” No, that’s probably reserved for next week.
