Rude awakening

My previous post was about loving thy neighbour. But I can't say the same for the people living above our unit. You see, I'm not racist. I love everyone for who they are except for some instances that they can't change and I can't take it. So I choose not to know that person or stop talking to them period!

I slept late last night or should I say most nights as I am a night person. And I enjoy sleeping in if I'm not working. Who doesn't right? And I expect to at least see Edward Cullen in one of my dreams but then again it's wishful thinking.

As I was still in dreamland, I was startled. There was screaming, shouting & banging of doors at the unit above. It was indeed a rude awakening!

The family lived above us are indians. What I don't understand is that why do they have to do that almost everyday? I'm sure it's not part of their culture. Normally when I have to work in the morning say 5am. They have already started shouting at the top of their lungs at each other.
The kids will be crying and I assume it's their parents shouting at each other.

I pity the kids! Why do they have to grow up in this kind of environment? I thought parents are supposed to show a good example to their kids? Or at least pretend to have a healthy and loving relationship in front of them.

Today's case is extra ordinary because the screaming match started around 11am. Til god knows what time. What I heard was the dad shouting, wife screaming, kids crying and a lot of doors banging. More doors banging than usual. So I assume that the case is more serious.

There was a lot of throwing things around and running around. I was afraid that the wife will jump down from the balcony and got stuck on ours. And there won't be any death coz they live on the 7th floor. The worst case would be broken bones and I suppose that would lead to more arguements.

I was tempted to call the police on them as they are creating too much noise pollution. I understand that it's normal to have heated arguments but do they have to share it with the rest of the world?

I believe that they can do anything they want if they lived in a bungalow with acres of land of their own where nobody have to hear what they are arguing about. They should be more understanding for the sake of other people's sanity.

What about those people who work at home? They need some peace and quiet too. So next time before you start shouting at whoever that you're mad at, think of your neighbours too. They don't need to hear that.
