Up until a few weeks ago I had one of the most annoying types of neighbors you can have.
That shithead was literally addicted to everything annoying: cigarettes, alcohol, noise, violence, partying… He would party until 12 – 1 am, then he would get up at 5 am to smoke a cigarette, at 7:30 am he would turn on the radio to listen to it with his fucking surround sound system and around 9 – 10 am he would proceed to watch a violent movie, also in a volume that just made me want to smash his fucking head against his fucking subwoofer until he would fucking bleed to death. Okay, I’m getting carried away again, but this time I’m not sorry. (To all the female kids out there: don’t write when you’re hungry and PMSing, it makes you kinda aggressive lol. I’m just kidding, go for it. It might add some spice to your writing ;P)
I don’t get it. I mean, you get up in the morning and the first thing you do is poison your mind and body with the most disgusting shit? Don’t you have something better to do? It’s so fucking pathetic, I just can’t get over it.
The smoke of his cigarettes would be coming up to my apartment like every 20 minutes. Sometimes I could hear him choking in the bathroom. For real though, I could literally HEAR black mucus from all the smoking coming out of him. I just. I can’t. How are those people not disgusted by themselves?
Look, it’s none of my business what you put into your own body, it’s your life and if you want to destroy yourself, fine, go ahead. But please do it quietly without disturbing other people.
He had people over like 24/7, apparently he was a student and had exams. One day I could hear him talking on the phone from the balcony, “I’m trying to study”. You? You are capable of that? Well, what a surprise. But it was no suprise that he had people over even while studying. He clearly could not be alone with himself. He was addicted to distraction of all forms.
Addictions are forms of distractions. They can be subtle. You might be addicted to thinking. In fact, overthinking is so common among people in our society that it’s considered normal. Not being able to stop thinking and worrying is not normal. It’s an addiction.
Many people are also addicted to complaining and wallowing in self-pity. “I don’t have time for this”, “I’m a victim, other people are always treating me unfairly, it’s not my fault”. My mother be like: “I have to this, I want to do that”. Me: “So, do it”. She: “I can’t, I don’t have time, I have to work”. Well, maybe you would be able to do it if you wouldn’t waste your time absent-mindedly scrolling through Facebook and surfing the Internet instead of actually working 😑. Another thing she often complains about: “I don’t have enough money”, while constantly buying all kinds of things she doesn’t actually need. She clearly has enough time and money, there is no reason to complain. But she’s of course not aware of all this. People just like to complain for no reason, because it’s addictive and feeds the ego.
