I tried to tuft a titmouse once, but the screams were unbearable.

Wait, did Drooly get a haircut?!
In other news, last night I became "that neighbor" -- I ratted out my neighbor's 16 year old kid for throwing a wild party this past weekend while he (my neighbor) was on a business trip to China.
The mom has custody, but the kid has a key to Dad's apartment and every time the dad has gone away this year (happens about once a month or so), the kid has thrown a party. The one this past weekend was just ridiculous, but the thing that really drove me over the top was that every ten minutes, some kid would slam the front door of the apartment (just next to mine) so hard it sounded like a gunshot and literally made the furniture in my apartment shake. Every. Ten. Minutes. Until. 2 a.m. Also, a large gang of kids was hanging out in the hall for extended periods of time laughing, drinking and getting high. Three times, with increasing rancor, I complained and asked them to stop slamming the door and to not hang out in the hallway. They ignored me.
Turns out the kid is not allowed in his dad's apartment at all when dad is out of town. Kid is way busted. Dad's taking away his key. Party time is over forever. Sorry, not sorry.
The sad part (for him) is that I would have minded my own business if the kid and friends had been apologetic and tried to keep it down in response to my complaints, and he could have partied on for all I care. He picked a bad night to piss me off -- I was working from my apartment all weekend well into the evening and was in absolutely no mood for bullshit.
