My hopes rose even more when Monday dawned and all was still quiet upstairs. Later that day, Jay ran into the manager (Ron), who told him quite a story. It seems Leadfoot has not lived upstairs for several months. He illegally sublet the apartment to two girls who were just as noisy and inconsiderate as Leadfoot had been. Ron said that if I had not reported the noise Thursday night, he might never have known that they were living there illegally. So, I guess I deserve a great big THANK YOU from management, right? Right. Will I get one? No. Ron did say he'd try to get me a better neighbor next time. Sure, sure.
In the meantime, I'll just enjoy being able to sleep uninterrupted at night for the first time in a year.
