42. Being neighborly
Neighbors can be useful when you need to borrow a cup of sugar or an egg, but they can also be quite a nuisance, especially when they live right above you and they seem to walk around the apartment wearing cement shoes. We’ve all had neighbors that are inconsiderate like that, whether they’re making constant noise or otherwise being selfish. This right here is one way to handle them:
When you don’t know your upstairs neighbors too well and you’re hesitant about approaching them, there’s always the option of putting up passive-aggressive signs. You don’t have to say the neighbors are inconsiderate, all you do is mention what their favorite pair of shoes is (= you’re too noisy!) and it’s bound to do the trick.
