Update: Neighbors complained AGAIN but there's a plot twist
Hello! If you haven't read my original Advice Wanted, please see here: https://thedipp.com/advice-wanted/p/1154/neighbors-complained-about-my-dog
So, this was about two weeks ago, and I haven't heard anything from the neighbors since. That was, until, last night.
Last night I got a call from the front desk of my building telling me the upstairs neighbors (same as those in the dog post) have complained about my music being too loud. PLOT TWIST, FAM... I WASN'T PLAYING MUSIC. In fact, I was quietly reading a book because I'm trying to read at least one book this year (don't come for me).
So now I wonder if these neighbors have something against me and are ready to blame me for anything. It sure seems like it. I told the doorman that I wasn't playing music and he was confused and just said OK have a good night. I don't know if he relayed that message to my upstairs neighbors, but I hope so.
So does this change anything? Clearly the neighbors think they know how to locate sound and assume it's just coming from my apartment. (I'm even starting to wonder if my dog really was even "wailing" when they first complained.) We have an upcoming building mixer and I'm a little anxious — what if I meet them! Do I say something?! Do I correct them? Tell them to back off? Apologize for the dog but politely say I wasn't playing music?
