The house next door to use is for sale. The semi-detached … really attached house I mean.
Am I a bad person to make noise in my house when I hear a really noisy crowd of people go through the house next door? Am I?
Seriously. The other day when I wasn’t feeling well I was asleep on the couch and I was rudely awoken when the realtor or the people he/she was showing the house next door to started talking loudly at the top of his voice. I mean – he was so loud he woke me up out of a deep sleep!
In fear of the loud talker being a potential home buyer, I got up off the couch and started walking around my home – loudly. You know, walking on my heels. Thump, thump thump up and down the stairs. I also closed a few doors noisily, coughed a bit and turned the TV up a bit.
Nothing too terrible or was it?
All I was doing was trying to show the potential home buyer that if someone makes really loud noises in either home it can be heard.
You know, as much as I complain about our current karaoke neighbors they aren’t that bad. Unless their son is jumping on the couch or playing a really loud video game (sound up high, probably when parents aren’t home) we don’t hear them that much. I mean, we can’t hear normal conversations or anything. It’s just when they start playing their musical instruments – tuba? electric guitar, start singing gawd awful karaoke or have a party (with fellow karaoke buddies) that we really hear them.
But if a loud talker moves in … someone that we’ll be able to hear all the time, every day? Ahhhh! I swear we’ll have to move.
The person that was either showing or viewing the house the other day was sooooo loud!
So. Am I bad for making some noise of my own?
