The management of my apartment building issued an updated list of "Policy and Procedures" today.
Among them was reminder to the night owls to keep the noise down late at night. They state this by saying:
There is a Quiet Time after 10:00 p.m., 7 days a week. Please have the curtsy of your neighbor in mind when you are up late into the night.
My neighbors and I hardly acknowledge each other, much less curtsy!
Alas, what a shame. We think the world would be a much nicer place if we all bowed and curtsied to each other. And it's almost certain we'd have stronger backs and knees for the exercise.
