I live in an apartment block and my immediate next door neighbour is extremely creepy. from friends and connections i've spoken to, none have anything good to say about him. The other night i heard a knock at the door, and this guy was just standing out there. he stared at me vacantly for ages, before i asked him what it was he wanted. He said that the noise was too loud, which was PATHETIC, since it was only 9.00 p.m, and my radio wasn't even loud. he said he wanted to go to sleep, but i know he only starts work mid-morning.
Still, i turned the music down anyway.
He was hanging around a bench in front of my apartment yesterday, which was not trespassing, but was weird and inappropriate, since he (nor any other people living in the bldg) have done that before.
Worst of all, i've seen him hanging around the local college campus, of which he's NOT a student. Not bad in itself, but the creep came right up to me when i was sitting having a quiet cigarette on a bench on-campus, and sits down. Again, nothing technically illegal or even wrong with that (Though he was trespassing on college property i suppose), and you could accuse me of being alarmist.
But there is something intensely creepy about this dude.
I am an easygoing guy, but this idiot is stirring VIOLENT hatred in me, like I can't remember anyone having done for years, if ever.
After sitting on the bench, i totally ignored him, pretending i hadn't seen him, and went inside the adjacent college library. Later on, he walked into the library, pretending to be a student,sat down at a computer, tried to log on to the system, and, obviously, couldn't! So he walked out the library.
This fellow has the demeanour of a stalker or something! Good friends of mine run a hostel which he stayed in for a time, and he was by all accounts an antisocial and inconsiderate tenant there. Another friend of mine works in a cafe this guy frequented and told me that my neighbour was always rude and annoying when visiting the cafe. So by my own experience and those of trusted friends who have no need to lie about this, the guy is a Class-A jackass. Even the landlord finds him odd, but cant really, or doesnt want to, do anything about it.
According to conflict resolution principles, you should try and communicate with such people and work things out amicably, but there is no chance of that happening because the guy seems moderately demented,totally drug-f**ked and is absolutely disgusting. I don't want to talk to him!
The guy is also a total whining sleaze- AFTER I turned the radio down, he still whined to the landlord the next day about me! does anyone know what the hell this moron's problem is and what i should do about it? I should able to keep a radio in my own apartment, and even turn it up a little OCCASSIONALLY. There are no noisy appliances in the apt either, and i dont even have a TV.My other neighbours, upstairs, are frequently noisy, but it doesn't bother me and I dont cry like a baby over it. After all, some noise is to be expected in apartments. Right?
So Tell me, before i get frustrated and petrol-bomb the creep's room!
