It was a Friday night and I had turned in early because I had an all day conference that started early the next morning. At about 10:00 PM, which I realize is quite early for a Friday night, I was watching the Sopranos on my computer while the boys were making noise in the living room. Bahrry has his music on so loud I could barely hear the computer just feet from my face! It got a little quieter, so I thought they were getting ready to leave. The one big bonus of going to bed early on a Friday, as opposed to a day earlier in the week, is that the boys were bound not to spend too much time in the apartment and I could actually get some sleep.
After the Sopranos episode finished, the music started to get loud again. I put my earplugs in and tried to go to sleep. It was OK for a while, but then it got so loud I could feel the base. So I went into the living room to ask them to turn it down, willing myself to be calm and polite, despite the fact that I was seething on the inside. When I got in there the TV was on on mute with the music coming from Bahrry's room blaring and no one was even in either room!!
I turned off the music in Bahrry's room, all the while muttering under my breath to myself about how ridiculous they were, how unnecessary the music and the TV were since they weren't event there, how I definitely wasn't going to pay the whole electric bill that month . . . and then bam! There's Bahrry walking down the hall. Now I was less calm.
