My neighbor is crazy

It is the only explanation for her behavior.

Yesterday, I did my laundry like always. I went down to switch loads out and noticed one of my son’s shirts that had been hanging to dry was laying on the floor. I didn’t think much of it and hung it back up to dry.

The next time I went down I noticed that someone had pushed two of my shirts on the line over so that the shirts were all bunched up and there was a bare space on the line. Also, two of my children’s shirts were on the floor. Shirts can sometimes fall. However, shirts cannot push themselves over on a line.

I am sure it was my crazy neighbor. She is trying to intimidate me psychologically.

The next time I went down, she came into the room to get a dish towel she had been drying in the room. I had thought it was the concierge’s because the concierge does laundry on Monday mornings and she had already cleared out the room for me. I noticed that the concierge had taken some dish towels out with her when she was talking with me about my neighbor.

The neighbor looked behind the dryer. The towel had been laying on top of the dryer. She is clearly searching for something. She makes a nasty face and leaves.

I think the concierge had accidentally taken the neighbor’s dish towels because she thought the towels were hers. The concierge realized one was not hers and returned it to the laundry room. But, it seems that there may have been at least one more towel that was the neighbor’s that got mixed in.

While the neighbor was in the room I didn’t say anything because I was furious. If I had said something it would have resulted in a heated argument which I think she was fishing for. She had her two year old daughter with her. I didn’t want to get into an argument and scare the child. So, I held my tongue.

This woman has no reason to be in that room on my day. She purposely put those stupid towels in there to dry knowing I would not know they were hers. This way she is still drying clothes in the room even after I told her I not to. She could easily have dried two dish towels in her apartment. But, it is about power and intimidation with her. She is nuts.

My husband immediately called the landlord who we have already talked to about this. He told my landlord it is psychological what this woman is doing and we will not stand for it. My husband said if she continues he is going to have to have a talk with her.

Believe me.

She does not want my angry husband at her door.

The landlord agreed that this is ridiculous and he is going to talk to her today.

When we talked to the landlord last Friday about the problem he said he may have to put a lock on the laundry room door.

Can you believe that?

He will have to go through the trouble of putting a lock on the laundry room door to keep this one person out when it is another person’s day to do laundry!

The concierge told me, yesterday, that she has talked to my neighbor several times about this without any results. That is not normal.

The funny thing is Wednesdays are the day my neighbor gets the room. She has it all afternoon and can leave her clothes there all night to dry if she wants.

She never uses it on her day.

The room sits empty.

Crazy, huh?

    Could you switch your laundry day to Wednesday and give her Monday? Or would she just find a way to make your life difficult, regardless of the day.

    I thought about doing that but I think it is more about her using the room when it is someone else’s day. So, if I switched to Wednesday she would start using it on Wednesday. She has been doing this for years. Everyone is sick of her in the building.

    You know it would be good for her to work. However, I am sure she would make her co-workers hate life. ;)
