Crazy Neighbor Girl

She stormed out after about 15 or 20 minutes of slamming doors and stomping around the hall and screaming quite literally at the top of her lungs (mind you it's four apartments in the building so the hall is not so large at all). We assume she went to the office to complain. There is a note on the poster depicting the instructions for the washer. It states that management is not responsible for any items damaged by bleach, in case it didn't occur to you that using a public machine is risky. Also, it says to please not dye any items in the public wash areas. The office is closed today as it's sunday, though I'm sure they'd care so very much anyway as I can only assume she'd present her case with great decorum.
I distinctly heard her muttering something about how she bets we'd "like it if there was dye on our clothes". Now I'm going to have to add an old wash cloth to my laundry system and wipe down the inside of the washer to be sure my clothes won't get ruined. Honestly, you take that risk when you use a public machine. And if something like this happens, and it's devastating enough to react like that, all I can say is it was her responsibility to choose to check or not check for any unwanted items (such as bleach - which I know is difficult to detect, it being unscented and all...) in the washer before putting her clothes in. I always at least check for other people's lost undies or things before doing my wash.
Anybody else have some crazy neighbor stories to share today?

All you can really do is either complain to the property owners or live with it. And believe it or not, complaining works so long as it's done right and, well you being you, I'm sure you could write something very professional sounding and have your neighbors sign it so that teh building owner knows it's a problem with everyone and not just you.

Our property management here is the type to, for example, there were kids drinking and being loud dancing around their car in the lot out front one night. The next business day we all had fliers on our doors stating something about how being disruptive is not okay according to the lease we all signed. Etc. We have so many fliers here is ridiculous. So I'm going to mention it when I pay the rent tomorrow. I'm just going to say that it's fine if she felt she needed to deduce who left bleach in the washer by knocking on our doors or leaving a note or something. But it's entirely unnecessary to carry on in a public area like that. Especially to be screaming profanities at us at 10am on a Sunday at the top of her lungs when the other two occupants are little old ladies.

Merc Man, I was actually commenting how it was interesting that she appears like she wouldn't lack in social skills so I was suprised that she never has a date or anything like that. Not that I've noticed. But now I think I've been enlightened. I just feel bad for the guy living with her.
Someone said I should print a picture of Nelson (from the Simpsons) saying "Haha!" and hang it on the bulletin board next to her stuff. hehe now that would be funny.
