Nut Case Neighbour

I have an incident with a crazy neighbour.


Friday morning my doorbell rang. As I was naked (still in bed), I wrapped the quilt around me and opened the door only a crack. I was confronted with the lady from apartment 2 trying to push her way past me. She asked if I had computers. Always cautious of advertising the contents of my dwelling, I said no. She said she knew I had computers here and told me to turn them off now or she would call the cops and have them confiscated. Thinking she might be mistaking the noise of our birds for the sound of computers, I asked her the nature of her complaint. She said our computers are hardwired to her and she knew everything we were doing. I asked again the nature of her complaint and she said if I didn’t know what she was talking about then I had nothing to fear. She turned and left while saying she was calling the cops.

I was quite concerned because I felt I was being accused of something like child pornography. Finally being fully awake, I got dressed and went to speak with her. Her son answered the door and, from behind him, she started listing off names of people I’ve never heard of and accusing me of conspiring with them. She told me I had a Mac computer (I don’t) and was using Darwin. I asked her what Darwin was. She said we were playing video games until all hours of the night and keeping her awake. This is false. She continued with her assertion that she would “call the cops” and they would confiscate our computers. I lost my temper and yelled at her as I walked away, “You, lady, are one whacko nut job bitch.”

Of course, this incident just set me up to have a really bad day. I'm feeling better now. The landlord told me the fruitcake is moving out August 1st. In the meantime, we're being extra careful to keep our doors locked.
