It was an ironic dance party, okay?

May 12th, 2007 · 23 comments

Slipped under our door by the downstairs neighbors.

Ya'll: This is the 3rd time Michael Jackson, Amy Grant, and the cast of Disney have invaded my apartment against my will. I tried knocking + was unheard or ignored. I don't want to have to rat you out, but if it doesn't stop ASAP I'm calling the policy. SORRY, Apt. 1

(Guilty as charged.)

    This isn’t really that passive, as they say they tried knocking first. Giving fair warning before you call the cops just seems standardly polite to me.

    Considering your choice of playlist (which can only be likened to a recording of the devil evacuating his bowels against your neighbors wall, depending on the MJ you choose), this note is far too even-keeled to be here amongst these other mealymouthed whiners.

    I love the giant “Y’all” at the top. :)

    Britney Spears must have left this for her neighbor when she was with
    The Mickey Mouse Club.

    It’s passive-aggressive not to answer your neighbor knocking.

    As someone who has had neighbors with this taste in music and the same propensity to blare it again and again, I can attest that no note asking it to stop can be too passive-aggressive, or just plain aggressive. Talk about sanity killing.

    Are they going to call the actual police department, or the band fronted by Sting? Maybe he could just get Sting and his buddies to hang out in the other apartments….have a battle of the bands or something…

    Not responding to the knocking on the door is passive aggressive; playing music so loud that the door cannot be heard is just plain aggressive. Either way, no question who the asshole is in this particular situation…

    Considering your choice of playlist (which can only be likened to a recording of the devil evacuating his bowels against your neighbors wall, depending on the MJ you choose),

    I’ve been reading for a while and this made me laugh out loud to think about this neighbor mistaking music for what was actually fecal matter aimed in her direction with all the force of a milatry projectile.

    Maybe not passive aggressive, but certainly weak. Who apologizes in a note after threatening to call the cops? Why not strike it out on the note?

    With that kind of playlist, the person should be glad the note wasn’t used to set the place on fire.

    i’m not sure if the submitter should be more ashamed of their complete lack of respect for other human beings… or their fucking rancid taste in music.
