Why I'm glad I don't live in an apartment anymore, part XXXVI

After somebody from his building's management installs "door silencers" on his front door, Ezra sends evil-eye beams toward the guy who complained to management about him allegedly slamming his door:

... FUCK YOU BUDDY! IF YOU WANT PEACE AND QUIET DON'T LIVE IN DOWNTOWN APARTMENT BUILDING! Why don't you move your old ass out to the suburbs you fucking fuck. And the worst part of the whole thing is, I thought I had fixed the problem, but I ran into the asshole this afternoon in the elevator, and he was all friendly. Then a few hours later, I get this note from management slid under my door. ...

While I dig the free publicity you provide, your commentary seems a bit patronizing and/or condescending. I am quite pissed off about this door slamming thing.

Yeah, I sorta gathered you're upset. Sorry if I seemed condescending. I was referring to why *I* am glad I no longer live in an apartment building.

You don't have to tell me about asshole neighbors - in junior high, we had one who thought we were making too much noise, so he took a hammer and smashed out our eyehole thing (a large, typical NYC one, not the tiny ones you see up here) - had any of us kids actually been near the door, we could've wound up with glass shards in the eye.

Woah, that's messed up. I probably won't actually do anything about this guy, he seems harmless enough, but he could be as psycho as I pretend to be.

Geez, maybe you could, you know, try and shut the door quietly. Your neighbors have the right to live in relative peace and quiet, living in the city has nothing to do with it.

Of course, the going to management instead of simply knocking on your door thing is rather annoying.
