I might be reaching my breaking point tonight.
It's bad enough our walls are paper thin. It's understandable that our neighbors are going to be full to the brim of loud and nightly domestic arguments and babies across the hall that scream for hours. It's also understandable that there are a lot of people selling dope to make ends meet and have people coming and going at all hours.
I live here because my disability won't grant much else in the way of consideration or opportunity.
For the most part, I am quiet and I keep to myself.
If I listen to music I wear headphones.
I don't go out much and I don't party.
Tonight, due to the interest of our small town for Bikers, there is another constant wave of riders headed up the main strip one block East.
Constant throttles and accelerations in the fast food sound corridor.
Usually I like Bikers. We get along just fine.
But tonight, in addition to the fighting couple, the crying baby and the constant jabbering of the drug dealers around me, the outside courtyard is amplifying and projecting the auditory assault from the main thoroughfare directly into our large windows, which further amplifies and directs the sound outside right into the very overwhelmed ear canals of one exceedingly stressed out woman who is doing her absolute damnedest to keep her composure and not flip out.
Yes, I have earplugs.
Lived here twelve years.
Ya kinda have to have them.
Just had to rant and relieve some of the pressure cooking in my head.
