I needed to vent some anger here. We live on residential complex in Tenerife. We have nice terraces to the front with nothing in front spoiling the view to the Atlantic. It's a great complex and very quiet. The guy who moved in next door has suddenly become a pain. He often has a pal round at night and they sit drinking getting louder and louder until really late. Complex rules are that noise should be minimal after 11.30pm. The people above him him told him to keep it down many times. I've never said a word as it doesn't bother me. It not that loud and because of the climate most of us spent a lot of time outside so I figure there's going to be some noise. I don't care about what other people do. Yesterday a good pal (who happens to be the wife of our complex President) came round for coffee about 6pm. We were just chatting normally and the guy from next door appears at my gate. He asked us to lower our voices to a normal level. I replied that I never complain about his late night noise which is usually much louder than our chatting and to go away immediately before I got really angry. He leaves straight away. My pal and I just look at each other in amazement. 5 minutes later my phone rings. It's the complex President, my pal's husband, who can barely speak to me for laughing. He explains that the asswipe next door has been to complain to him. The guy told him that we are normally quiet but "that" woman is always loud when she comes visiting and she is getting on his nerves. I manage to control my anger and just forget it. 3am this morning we come home after a night out with pals. The guy next door is on his terrace with his pal. Both drunk and being very loud. I take the dog for a walk and on my way back stop at his terrace wall. Here's what I say " I can't believe you have the cheek to go complaining about us talking at 6pm and look at you two now. You fucking hypocrite. I'm not even complaining about you now but don't you ever complain about me again. In fact don't speak to me or even fucking look at me." I then just walk away and come into my own terrace. He immediately appears at my gate talking incomprehensibly. I just yelled at him to get away ( less politely than that) which he does. Can you believe some people? Would you have done anything different?
