It was early in the morning, just after the crack of dawn, when I heard the insistent knocking at my door and I immediately knew that the water connection of my next-door neighbor was on the blink again.
This was becoming a constant source of irritation for me. If she would just invest a few dollars and get it fixed, she wouldn’t have to worry me early morning every other day.
She would knock on my door, asking if she could use the bathroom, perhaps take a quick shower or maybe just use it to get cleaned up for her office.
I promised myself that in the evening I’d call on her and ask nicely to get her water issues resolved. I also needed my sleep and privacy. And if she thought that by these tactics she was going to make me notice her, she was mistaken.
