The lady downstairs hates me. I think it's because I continue to have guests over (well, it's really just one permanent guest). What's worse is that she's the mother of the landlord - which as previously resulted in a call asking if we moved in another resident. (The answer is no, by the way.)

I can understand if she feels territorial, but I pay the damn rent; I'm entitled to do whatever the hell I want (as long as I'm not making a ruckus or buring the place down), right? In the words of the soon-to-be-divorced Bobby Brown, 'It's my prerogative'.

It's sad because when I first moved in, she would reply with a smile and nod when I greeted her. Now it's just one of those all-knowing-evil stares (and now I wonder if she can hear us through the ceiling).

That's not a problem because I have a BA in Not Taking Shit from People; so I just ignore her. However, what I wasn't trained for was having their dog take a dump on my welcome mat; which has never happened before she showed her distain for me. Coincidence?

Put it UNDER her welcome mat. You don't own a dog, so you couldn't be blamed.

That, or go out of your way to be friendly. Either one will be annoying for her.

Maybe she's just jealous of you having a guest over on a regular basis? Poor thing probably needs a little nookie herself.

However, the dog dump thing was pure evil on her part. I highly doubt the dog did it. I say if she's listening, give her something good to hear.

I'm thinking that putting it in her mailbox would be good. "There was what in your mailbox? Well, I have no idea how that got in there. I don't own a dog, but I'll keep an eye out for anyone hanging around here with one!"

Just remember to wear some rubber gloves or at least use a plastic bag to pick it up. Just don't leave the bag/gloves (evidence) in your own trash. :)

My work here is done.

Is this an old maid?? Because you know how jealous they are of people who are getting some :) LOL

And with regards to the mysterious feces. I would put that in a bag, and mail it to the bitch!

Hello, Jase. This is the old woman from downstairs. I am reading your blog and am even more upset with you than I was before.
