Lame apology

In an earlier post I mentioned my neighbour who's doing renovations. Last night he knocked on my door and sort of apologized. He essentially apologized for breaking the noise bylaw. He then asked if I could let him know whenever I go out in the evening, so that he could do some more renovations when I'm gone! I told him that I'm usually home after 7PM and probably won't ever be doing that.

What about being civil to your neighbours? I talked to him twice about all of the noise and that didn't work. The threat of a $5000 fine, and a Bylaw Enforcement Officer knocking on his door, made him stop acting like an idiot. He's essentially behaving himself, like a reasonable human being, because he does not want to be punished. The concept of having some respect or consideration for his new neighbours still hasn't seemed to cross his mind. He's definitely still in the Ahole category in my books. If you don't act like an Ahole because you don't want to be punished, you're still an Ahole.

  1. He's just trying to butter you up so he can get away with it next time. You should have just told him you were an evil Kraut...that would stop his crazy antics! LOL
