A home where the buffalo roam noisily  JUN 07 2004

I should start out by telling you that I live downstairs from

THE MOST ANNOYING PERSON IN THE WORLD!!!!!

Every weekday morning for the last couple of weeks, the woman upstairs, who just recently moved in, has been holding some sort of ballroom dancing function in her bedroom -- which just happens to be above mine -- at 7:15 am. The clomp, clomp, clomp of high heels on hardwood floors directly above your head for 20 fucking minutes is enough to wake the dead and even a heavy sleeper like me. And even when she isn't wearing hard-soled shoes, she's a heavy walker. It sounds as though a 6'8", 350 pound man is jumping rope up there.

To make matters worse, I think she's got a 2.4GHz cordless phone. 802.11b doesn't play well with 2.4GHz cordless phones. Every so often, and only when she's home, stomping around like an elephant, the wifi signal in the apartment goes to shit, usually right when I'm in the middle of something.

SO ANNOYING!!!!
