A 32-year-old woman who is the only renter in a small building of mostly owners has to deal with a terrible pot-smoking neighbor, “Sam,” who is loud and inconsiderate. After a heated discussion she is shocked by his reaction, here is what she had to say:
A Renter Amongst Owners
The woman, who is 32 years old, rents a condo in a small building where she is the only renter among mostly owners. The building has about 12 units, and it’s the kind of place where everyone knows each other, and most people are over 60. Some of the elderly ladies who live alone in the building rely on her for help, and she does her best to look out for them.
However, her neighbor, “Sam,” who lives above her, is a terrible neighbor. Everything he does is super loud, and every step he takes makes her entire 1400 sqft condo shake. She has tried to talk to him about it, but he only gets better for a day then goes back to being loud.
Sam and his girlfriend were also smoking pot and cigarettes in their bedroom, causing the smell to leak into at least 4 units, including the woman’s. Despite others talking to them, they only stopped when the other owners contacted the property manager and he told Sam that he was going to start being fined if they didn’t quit it.
Strange Men Around
Moreover, there have been several times that the elderly women have been accosted outside of the building by strange men trying to get to Sam’s unit because no one is answering their buzzer or their phone, even though Sam is home.
The woman has gotten into the habit of turning up her TV louder when Sam is being loud. However, the other day, when she was watching a movie, Sam came and knocked on her door asking her to turn the TV down.
She Tries to be a Good Neighbor
The woman, who usually tries to be a courteous neighbor, unloaded on him. She spoke calmly and firmly and she didn’t yell. She told him that everything he does is loud, and he needs to be a good neighbor and a decent human being before she turns her TV down.
Going Straight to the Cops
She also mentioned the smoking issue and the multiple women who have been accosted outside by strange men. She said that they were going to start calling the police when this happens. She wasn’t trying to threaten her neighbor but she needed him to know none of the building were happy with his behavior.
He Started to Cry
Sam actually started to tear up as the woman was talking. The woman just shut the door. She wondered if she took it too far and if she was the jerk for speaking to him that way. She didn’t mean to upset Sam but she couldn’t continue living this way.
He’s a Serial Crier
Another neighbor told the woman that before she moved in, she made Sam cry too because he was going around the building asking to borrow money, and she yelled at him. She thinks he just “cries” when he is called out.
She Felt Bad
The woman later realized that she probably could have handled the situation better, but she was frustrated and tired of dealing with Sam’s behavior. She felt bad for making him cry, but she also felt like she needed to stand up for herself and the other residents in the building.
The Internet Responded
This commenter wrote, “I would be really concerned about men accosting female tenants to get them to let them in the building. I would definitely be having a serious talk with the management because that is a safety issue. Makes you wonder what kind of illegal activity is going on upstairs, besides the pot smoking if that is being done against the law.”
Another Internet Comment
Another person commented, “Doesn’t matter whether his tears were genuine or an attempt to manipulate, they aren’t your problem. Perhaps he suddenly realized that his actions have consequences, which would be great for the residents.”
