I was going to explain the drama that developed at my apartment last night, but I think it’ll work just fine for me to paste the letter I wrote to the management of my complex. Letter writing is such an abandoned practice, but I think I’m going to start doing it more. Even if it’s just a letter that I slip in the drop box at my apartment at 1:30 a.m.

Itâ€™s 11:30PM on a Monday night. Iâ€™m working and I have my deck door open, attempting to enjoy the cool night air. For the past hour, Iâ€™ve been listening to the people in apartment 109 (in the 3301 building) scream at each other in an intoxicated manner while standing outside on their deck.
I decided to overlook it and not saying anything to them, because weâ€™ve all been young and absolutely inconsiderate at some point in our lives, right? Instead, I got up to shut the door to my deck.
As I walked across my living room, I noticed there was someone standing just on the other side of my deck throwing slices of ham onto it, at my dog, and against the sliding door. I hurried my step out the sliding door to see who was vandalizing my apartment with meat by-products just in time to see whoever it was jump back onto the deck of apartment 109. What a neat party trick.
I personally donâ€™t want to call the police, because I donâ€™t want to deal with the hassle of hearing these apparently new neighbors deny their activity. However, the next time this occurs, I will.
I donâ€™t know how building management handles this type of complaint or repercussions are taken on other tenants if the police are called, but I wanted you to be aware of the situation.
Iâ€™ve enjoyed living in this complex the entire time Iâ€™ve been here, but all of a sudden I feel as if a co-ed version of the Delta House has just moved into this somewhat quiet building.
I didn’t sign it. Maybe I should have. I’ll sign it next time.
I got my personal revenge this morning at 6 a.m. when Little Riley Pants needed to go outside and pee. I promptly dialed apartment 109 from the lobby phone. I thought they could use a wake up call.
