I didn't even mention that the former gentleman's friend car didn't seem to have a muffler...which was unreal. But he's gone now, so at least that's a plus.
mrd, I'd be happy to have you next to me. I could appreciate your classic rock....hell, I could tolerate just about anything if they'd just leave the thumping/bumping vibrations out of the equation. I thought about you last week when I noticed a "For Rent" sign in front of one of the houses around the corner. Of course, the "For Rent" idea bothers me, for the neighborhood, but not everybody would be irresponsible neighbors. I think you'd be a super-safe bet! :wink
That pizza place story had me . People are a t-r-i-p!!
Critical, before I bought my house, I lived in a townhouse...very nice one...and the people I lived next door to smoked some kind of funky, gross cigarettes. Their smoke would bleed over into my unit through the electrical outlets. It was horrible! I finally decided to put tape over the outlets that I wasn't using, and that helped a bunch. I still don't understand how people want to take that kind of nastiness down into their lungs. I've seen smokers' lungs from an autopsy, and "it ain't good".
