I’ve become so antisocial…or perhaps it’s the heat ?

It’s finally starting to cool down, sort of, but it’s still humid and muggy. Some new neighbors were throwing a birthday party, with about 20 LOUD guests. My friend, the retired cop, asked if I wanted to go, I thanked him, but I didn’t. I’ve been soaking in the shower, drinking iced drinks and listening to Greek music.

Periodically the neighbors’ guests are wandering around inside the building "because it’s so interesting". The party’s being held out back, so there’s less noise when they’re back there. 😳

I really want them to go home. They sang Happy Birthday, several of them sound rather tipsy; what’s left ?

Being around a bunch of drunk people never appealed to me.
They violated the people's space ,living in the apartment building ,by going in there.
I am a little bit antisocial ,but I don't think not wanting to have your apartment shook and people violating your privacy as antisocial.

I don't think it's either. I don't know a whole lot of people, unless they're early 20 something's, that want to be a part of some obnoxiously loud party drinking kegs and stuff. It just isn't your scene and that's okay!

Parties with people who can't control their alcohol are never fun.

@Crazywaterspring It depends on whether you're the sober person taking video with which to blackmail them later.

I'm a bit like you, but I don't classify myself as antisocial. I'm totally convinced that many partygoers have limited brain cells and can't be near as interesting as I am😁
LordShadowfire · 46-50, M
@Ontheroad Exactly. You're asocial, or introverted if you prefer.
Ontheroad · M
@LordShadowfire yup, introverted is the word... always have been.
@Ontheroad Same, here.

You have a right to be antisocial (if you are, in fact, antisocial) and not participate in something like that. In any case, that party doesn't sound like fun to me and I'm sure I'd be with you in wanting the guests to go home. I happen to be antisocial, though. 😅

The drinking would have bothered me. Though I do consider myself a bit anti social.

I did go to the fireworks show here, though I was by myself. Again.

It's so much harder to socialize without the drinking.

In a lot of ways, I miss city life.

But one thing I do not miss is summer heat in a city, and the inability to thoroughly ventilate an apartment.

Keep those cold drinks flowing!

I can imagine the mix of emotions with the noise and unexpected guests wandering around. Sending calm vibes your way!
@Carlam Much appreciated. 🙏🏽

Noise cancelling headphones🎧🤔
@bookerdana As long as they were out back, I wasn’t hearing them. Those who wandered in, "look at that staircase" and then coming up to my floor, "How old is this building ? Where does that door lead ?"

Who does that ?

@bijouxbroussard A rude one...the heat doesn't help in being tolerant of human foibles

You need your own place where you can live in solitude...
Piper · 61-69, F
A little of both, perhaps. I know I wouldn't have gone, either.

The heat and fires look serious, be safe.

It would have been some fun to go and forget your troubles for a while....🫂
@fun4us2b No, it just didn’t sound like fun.

@bijouxbroussard Sometimes things surprise us....
Haha I love the way you enjoyed your day with iced drinks and Greek music … ha awesome ☺️ 💃🏻

The heat makes everybody edgy, I think.

So, here's what I need you to do. I don't know what your internet device is, or how your sound system is set up, but if you can plug stuff in to your stereo speakers from your phone or your computer, play this:

Who wanders around an apartment building they don't live in?
@MethDozer I wondered about that, too. 🤨

That would annoy me also as I don’t like loud things
