Ellie has a new neighbor in her apartment building. She’s a nice enough person, but she’s VERY LOUD. You know the type, right? Honestly, they tend to stick out like sore thumbs here in the Northwest, where people live at a slightly lower volume. 12th Man, you are an exception to this point, and we love you for it.
Having a high-volume neighbor can be a problem, especially if you have an otherwise friendly relationship. The real downside to Ellie’s issue has to do with a specific variety of loudness; yes, I’m talking about the lush audio experience of listening to your neighbor in the act of getting it on.
Ellie says her neighbor’s concert-level lovemaking noises are so loud and exuberant that she needs headphones to avoid sharing the experience. It’s driving Ellie crazy, but she doesn’t know how to address it; in fact, she’s not sure IF she should address it.
I think we’re all familiar with this scenario. I don’t ever want to hear Ellie’s neighbor, but I’d love to hear your thoughts…
