About twice a week my neighbor creeps outside -- like at 11 0'clock at night -- and sweeps the entire back patio. She arranges the things on my side into little lines.
Then she brings out the hose.
After hosing down the patio, she hoses down THE ENTIRE BACK OF THE BUILDING.
So say its midnight on a day in October, the upstairs windows are left slightly open to let in a bit of the crisp fall air, I'm sitting on the can doing my business and WHAM! I get sprayed with icy cold water. She is hosing down my second story bathroom window.
What in the hell?
I feel bad hearing her sweep. Should I be doing that? Is this some valuable piece of cleaning and I'm a complete jerk because I'm not outside in my P.J.'s hosing down the back of the apartment building?
I will admit I don't sweep that much. Hope plays with the leaves, I think the fall leaves are pretty, and after all -- the apartment complex is supposed to take care of leaves and they don't.
(shhhhhhh.... I'm listening to her doing her "ritual" right now)
Now she is at the front of the building. Moving my things so that she can sweep and hose down the front porch. Most likely she will do what she always does and leave my welcome mat in the grass. I think this is her passive aggressive hint.
I just act like I don't realize what she is doing. God bless oblivion!
Did I mention it is raining here. WHY WOULD YOU HOSE DOWN AN UNCOVERED PATIO IN THE RAIN???
Someone help me out with this, I'm confused.
*I want to point out that I used great restraint with my titling of this post; it was almost "Bitching about Hose."
