Occasionally, I hear the two fighting. It’s usually when they have come home after a night out of drinking. At first, I immediately faulted the guy. She was crying - how can you side with someone who’s not crying? But, the more spats and arguments that went on, the more I learned what a fricken nag she is! This poor guy lives with someone who is a constant nitpicking bitch from hell. As I was in my office working, I heard them walking down the walkway toward the apartment building. When people are outside the building, you can hear every single word they say, even if it came down to a whisper. I heard, “Well, it’s not as if those idiots give a shit. Thank God they don’t live above us.” They were complaining about the apartment below them. I was relieved because we’re above them, so she was basically saying we’re pretty quiet, aside from Madelene’s heavy foot and my occasional romp on the treadmill.
Lately, it seems as though the guy has been getting friendlier and actually going out of his way to make a greeting. I was already inside my car settling in, putting my purse next to me and reaching for my seatbelt, when I notice my neighbor trying to get my attention through my limo tinted windows. I rolled down my window and he says, “Oh, I just wanted to say hello!” I greeted him back and wondered what that was all about. We’ve never spoken before and he seems too eager to get to know us now, after a year and a half of living there.
So last night as I’m getting ready to hit the hay, I hear them bickering. They weren’t exactly yelling like their usual fights, but just a light ‘bicker’. I was in the bathroom about to wash my face when I hear, “WHY??? Because they're LESBIANS?”
I guess the truth comes out of the woodwork sometimes.
