Things my neighbours do that aren’t annoying enough to complain about but are still really annoying…
Tom Mitchell

I had to laugh at your complaints, which seem infinitely better than what I as an apartment dweller experience. Wanna trade? Living like a sardine affords a magnified view of the inconsiderate behaviour of your fellow sardines. Daily life enrichment includes, but is not limited to:
- opening your door to find someone else’s garbage bags leaning against it, usually leaking. 
- inhaling cigarette smoke from neighbours who smoke on balconies (gets sucked into ventilation system) and in common areas like the hall outside your door
- inhaling smoke caused by fires on balconies, set by smokers throwing lit cigarette butts
- being kept awake and annoyed at all hours by yapping dogs left unattended on balconies
- being culturally enriched at all hours by blaring rap music from apartments whose doors are also propped wide open
- being forced to inhale the daily eyewatering dumpster fire+burnt onion stench of other people’s cooking
- enjoying the disorientation and panic caused by drunks pulling the fire alarms in the middle of the night, at least once a week. If it’s not the drunks it’s the incompetent landlord doing something stupid to the security panel and setting off the alarm
