SINCE moving to my new place over a year ago, I have learned that there are truly two separate kinds of tenants..the upstairs people and the downstairs people. Some would LOVE to be living downstairs but can’t because there were no openings at the time they rented. SOME took upstairs apartments and have not been happy since. Some rented downstairs, for many reasons, but are not happy because of WHO is living above them. You just cannot win sometimes.
Downstairs people seem to commiserate over the noise and the fact that someone is always walking over the top of them. Upstairs people complain that it is too hot “up here” and the tenant downstairs runs their heat high or tv too loud. It is always something.
Why can’t people just be tolerant of others? Who knows..but if I was not happy I think I would just MOVE some place else. I would not sit and complain over every little thing. I hate packing and moving though..just hate it and would avoid it at all costs. I unpacked right away..when I got here. I don’t know where everything is exactly but I think I am getting a handle on it now. What brought this whole thought on was a person from another building who stopped me in the parking lot. She said “How are you doing with your new tenants? Mine are nice.” I said..”Fine..it is what it is, you get what you get.” “Well if they cause you any trouble, report them to the manager.” She has lived here a long time and I guess she has seen a lot of people move in and out. She knows what things occur. I say don’t look for trouble..just go with the flow until something happens. THAT is just what I am doing.
CAN you guess what I am an UPSTAIRS or DOWNSTAIRS person??? (some of you will know 😉 )
