No way!!!
How did you guys meet? Did you see each other around the building, or maybe shopping nearby, but didn't realize you both lived in the same apartment building? That is really amazing. Let alone across the hall from one another.

His bakery made our sub rolls for the sandwich shop I worked at. He and his boss would drop in most days for an after work beer and sandwich. Turns out Shrek was the jerk across the hall that played loud music, we ran into each other in the apartment building one day as he was leaving his apartment and I was hauling a load of clothes to the washroom. Took us 4 years to get married.

So you married the jerk across the hall! Aw! So romantic!

Does he still play the music too loud? Or have you got him "house trained" now?

Reading this back, it sounds a little harsh, which was not my intention. I was going for "vaguely amusing".

He still plays the music too loud...hard to stop a musician type... He is getting better at doing it while I am at work. But, I have a house full of amplifiers and guitars.

I'm looking for a cat tree/kitty condo for Shreddy. I want one with a hole that he can use to climb to a higher level, a hammock, and easy for the little old man to get onto.

My SO and I lived in the same apartment building (different floors) for 2-3 years. We saw each other around the grounds from time to time. One day near Christmas, we met in the laundry room and started a conversation. She was lamenting being alone for Christmas so the next day I knocked on her door with a box of Godivas and a funny card to cheer her up. She agreed to go out with me and said she would call me after Christmas to set a date. She never called, so I called her. We went on our first date on 1/2/99. The rest, as they say, is history.

When we were talking about the whole first date thing later she told me she didn't call me because she was raised to believe that women don't call men for dates! Women!
