UGH!!! I thought this series could have ended with part 2. But apparently not. So this is going to be a huge rant. If you’re not in the mood for a rant today, just by-pass this. I won’t be upset.
So this stupid lady that I live with O-M-G!!! Like I am almost at my wit’s end. This is the one who I wrote about in my post about the lady who was rude in Subway, and also in my post about being in a full house again.
But this week….omg this week she is testing every. single. LAST OUNCE of my patience and good nature. I am 100000000% sure there is steam coming from my ears right now.
She has to get up to make breakfast for the students, which she was annoyed about. She always gets up earlier than everyone else but apparently still waking up at 6:30 but having to come out of her room before 8 is the problem. When I wake up, I like to have a nice quiet start to my day. Sitting with my phone, checking Pinterest, texting Mr Potential (if he’s awake), sipping coffee. That’s a nice morning. The students are all quiet too. Mostly because they are teenagers and have to be up for school.
But her?! No not her!!
She likes to listen to videos on her Facebook. Which is totally fine. But she listens to them at FULL VOLUME. So on Monday, I turn around in my chair, once most of the students have finished eating, and ask really nicely by the way! “could you turn the volume down a little, please?” Then she gets all “you’re telling me to turn my things off?” and mumbling under her breath and she turns it off completely. I go “no not off, just down a little. It’s so loud.” And then the students are all gone so I no longer have any protection.
Most of the doors in this house automatically close when you let go of them. Now she gets up at 6:30 to have some quiet time in her room (which is why she’s ready to listen to full volume by the time everyone else is awake). But first, she goes into the bathroom. Which means: she opens her door and lets it slam behind her (wakes me up sometimes), then goes into the bathroom which is right beside my door, and slams the door there (doesn’t turn the handle to make that sound softer) which most definitely wakes me up. Then the lock is this flip thing that can make a lot of noise if you just slap it closed, which she does. And then, of course, the reverse when she leaves. THEN omg this morning she comes BACK to the bathroom WITH HER PHONE ON FULL VOLUME. And I’m in my bed, my alarm has not gone off yet. I’m pissed because she has woken me up which means I can’t get back to sleep. And THEN the stupid phone is playing some video!!! WHAT THE FUCK!?! I audibly groan from my room – because, duh, of course!! It’s like 7 am!! And instantly the sound stops.
In my mind (half asleep, and in fully pissed off ginger mode) this is what happened: she took her phone and stood outside my door with it playing until she KNEW I was awake and then turned it off. Now if that’s the case, that would be totally petty for a 40-year-old grown ass woman.
Then in the kitchen, she makes a ruckus while putting dishes away, keeping the hallway door open so everyone can hear her, she talks to herself and sings while staring out the window. Oblivious to the fact that some people just want quiet in the morning!
Thankfully I have Mr Potential to offer hypothetical situations on what might just happen to her phone if it found its way to his work desk….apparently smashing it with a hammer (my suggestion) is vandalism BUT wires/connectors become disconnected all the time *wink wink*. He’s so supportive lol.
*Please be advised that none of these ideas will ever actually happen. I’m not that kind of person*
I could just wear earplugs. If I get them in right, I sleep through almost anything. But the only downside is that I can’t hear my alarm when it goes off and then I sleep through my alarm. Not good for the days when I actually have to be up at my normal time. But also that can be good for when I’m just utterly exhausted and need to get some decent sleep.
