I had a big of an awkward situation with my downstairs neighbor this week. I've been staying up late because I sleep much better during the day (always struggled with insomnia) and now that I'm working part time, I could afford to do that and either sleep late in the mornings or nap in the afternoons on work day. Well, apparently when I walk around it's really loud to the downstairs neighbor, even though I'm just walking...I'll be honest and say I hadn't even though of that. This is my first apartment and I don't have anyone above me. So a couple of days ago she starts writing threatening notes on my door about calling the police for noise, banging on the door until I answer it, screaming at the top of her lungs, etc. She had not mentioned this before...her first line of action was to start yelling outside the door that she was going to call the cops, among numerous swear words. One of these times was at 8:30 pm! I live alone and I admit she scared me half to death. Anyway, obviously I'm moving soon so I just told her I was sorry and that I'd be more quiet. I've tried to completely flip my sleeping schedule around at least go sit in bed around 10 and either watch tv on my laptop with headphones or read and only get up for the bathroom. I've also been tip-toeing around, which I HATE feeling like I can't walk in my own apartment, but I figured for a couple more weeks it was worth keeping the peace. I've also been staying out as much as possible rather than being home and worrying about every step I take! Anyway, apparently she's been happy with that, which is great...but she left me a note on the door saying thank you and that she wanted me to come downstairs for dinner one night. I'm happy she's happy, but honestly, this woman really scares me...I don't really want to be in her apartment! Plus no matter who it is, I'm super shy around people I don't know. Even if I didn't think she was half-crazy I'd have major anxiety about it...would you just suck it up and go? I feel like I can't totally ignore it or that would be rude.
