flashback to 2004 (this is long)
Wednesday. 8.19.09 9:29 am
Somewhere, in the 40-ish pages of this blog, is an experience I wrote about that touched on domestic abuse. weeee. My roommate way back when I was a silly college freshman had her boyfriend over allllll the time. One night, while I was supposed to be writing or studying, I was messing around in my room when I heard and argument and a big fat slap.
Some of you older members may even recall this entry. I don't recommend looking for it, five years = lots of entries. If I can find it myself, I'll link it.
ANYHOW. My other roommate's boyfriend threw the guy out and we put frozen peas on her swollen eye and tried to convince her to leave that jerk. It didn't work out, he was back the next day. The life I led back on '04 was... Maybe sometime I'll tell you about the time I came home and there was a gun on the table. That was fun.
Here's some advice: Don't let some random apartment complex pick your roommates for you.
Okay, on with the story. A girl (who I found out today is 20) lives in the apartment next to Edward and I. She's generally quiet, except when she's walking her dog, "Mystery." Basically, I have no issue with her. Okay, had no issue with her.
Lately, she's been turning her t.v. on really loudly, at 6 or 7 in the morning on Sundays. And I can hear it like it's in the room with me. I'm sure you can all understand why that would irritate me. So Edward and I do the usual BANG BANG BANG on the wall (that's what everyone does, right? who has the time and energy to walk downstairs, outside and over to her place just to ask her to turn her t.v. down? she probably wouldn't have anyway). Turns out, BANG BANG BANG, THUMP THUMP THUMP and speakers against the wall blasting Bizet's "Carmen" doesn't work.
Come to find out, it's most likely her dumbass boyfriend that's the loud t.v. watcher, not her (I didn't even realize she HAD a boyfriend, or visitors of any sort). And yesterday morning, for the first time, I heard sex noises. She wasn't home though. That wasn't something I wanted to think about so I just yelled "GROSS" through the wall. Sex noises ended. Topic over. I think he was watching porn. What a winnerrrrrr.
Last night, at 1 in the morning, their t.v. was on, loudly, once again. Even though I tried to tell Edward that BANG BANG BANG wouldn't work, he did it anyway. I was right. It didn't work.
This morning, at around 10 till 8 I heard loud arguing, and then 20 year old girl neighbor yelling "DON'T LEAVE! DON'T LEAVE! DON'T LEAVE!" I assumed they'd had a regular fight and he was storming out. Edward left for work, I laid in bed wondering what has become of my life. Eventually I peeked out the window when I heard her conversing angrily outside. Two cops, yaaaay. Domestic abuse call. I guess she was yelling, "DON'T LEAVE" because she wanted him to stick around for when the cops showed up. Unfortunately I believe she's locked out of her place, her dog is locked in, and she has to go to work with a black eye. The police advised her to get her shit and get out, and as far as I could tell from the conversation I was eavesdropping on, she plans to do so.
Good for her.
Anyway. The whole thing reminded me of the '04 incident and how I wished I hadn't been too scared to call the cops on my roomie's boyfriend. Her name was 2T, by the way. Pronounced Tootie. I have no idea where she is now.
See, I think I'd have called the police after several nights of loud TV.
Or you could do like I did and make fun of them through the wall. » ikimashokie

domestic abuse is just something i'll never understand. if you "love" someone, how can you beat the hell out of them? and if someone beats the hell out of you, why would you stay with them? i guess i'll never know.
also, the guinness was definitely cold. screw warm beer.
cheers. » thaitanic
