Complaint Department

Everyone has a gripe. Here are some examples:



When I lived in Ireland, there was a couple next door. I don't know what their names were, but I referred to them as "moana" and "dick". You could accuse me of 'envy' and at times, you'd be right, but they kept all the flats around them awake at night.


It's been a long time since I had to share washer/dryer with the rest of a building. This brings the memories back.



You can file this one under, "be careful what you ask for".


Moan-a and Dick revisited.


Imagine your embarrassment if somebody decapitated your obnoxious old neighbor lady and bolted her head to the hood of your car. The police wouldn't have to look very far for a suspect...


Many years ago, I was "the police" and used to delight in this sort of call at about 5 am when nothing else was going on.


This one is my very favorite and I left it for last.

  4. Hahahaha these are so funny! I haven't tried living in an apartment. If I could live in an apartment, I would love to send some post-it notes on their front door if they bother me and stay anonymous. lol
