Neighbours and Washing Machines

A new twist on an old subject regarding our downstairs neighbours whom I wrote about in this thread back in days of yore.

Not really a complaint - more a bit of commentary really but this didn't really fit elsewhere.

The laundry room downstairs has a single washer and tumbler - and the system is a calendar on the wall where people book slots - Sundays and Bank Holidays excluded as usual.

The same neighbour books the washing room on average for 13 hours per week - most people in the building average 3-5 hours. She also has her own washing machine in the apartment which gets used even past the 10pm watershed. The other night we were in bed at 11pm and got a perfect chorus of the spin and drain cycle - meaning Mrs nickatbasel was kept awake.

Honestly they must never have a single item of dirty laundry in the house!

Since the incident described in my original post they have been sweet to us, but lately it's getting a bit strange. Every few days Mrs Downstairs comes to our door with some naff piece of junk that their teenage kids have grown out to give to our 4 y.o. Mrs nickatbasel always gives a polite "no". I am sure it is all very nice but given their previous behaviour towards us I prefer to keep such people at arm's length.

Oh well, it provides an incentive to find a place of our own.

Cheers,
Nick
