Ok. For you fellow apartment residents, let me share w/ y'all a very important 4 letter word :
P A R K
That's where you go, to run around your fifteen hundred and five grandchildren -instead of up and down the common stairs, especially when they're tossing water balloons and have never heard of random acts of kindness, or over the heads of your fellow tenants who just may not be up to listening to the kiddie chronicles. And while we're on the "not in your apt because I get to hear it in mine!", this goes, too, for large gatherings of drunken friends, especially the type who are apt to rearrange your furniture at ungodly hours of the morning.
I realize we all live close together ... and that's why I'm saying this! Please! A little respect! A little peace and quiet! Not all of us come home just to get unraveled!
