Is my neighbor kinky or just weird?
As is wont to happen when living in an apartment complex, you hear things. Weird things. Annoying things. I’m thankful that most of the annoying things happen before 10pm, but I’m disappointed that I rarely hear sex things.
At least, I don’t *think* I do.
The thing is, we’re not sure about the guy below us. I’m not sure if it’s just this complex, these people, this region or if it’s normal at apartment complexes to remain mostly mysterious to your neighbors – but I don’t know these people. I couldn’t tell you the first name of a single person in my building. There’s only two floors here, long buildings that stretch out in rows like legos not linked together and no shared hallways or entranceways. We peer out of our blinds at each other but that’s mostly it. Once a month a “hello” is issued in passing. So I don’t know this guy below us. I know he has odd work hours, and I know he’s not married. I know he listens to his music loud and his Nintendo/Playstation even louder.
But what the HELL are the noises that I hear some evenings?!?
Muffled, slow-paced loud thumps. It’s too slow for it to be a headboard hitting a wall. It’s the right pace for a sadistic ass beating, but my eyes widen in fear that said ass beating noises are reverberating like that through the floor and walls. So no, it just can’t be *that*. But what the bloody hell is going on? I try creeping down our steps to get closer to the offending noise but he somehow hears me, and the noises stop or slow down even farther.
Is he chopping up dead bodies?
