Micro Managing and Condo Living
This is my first experience living in a condo. Our building is not registered yet so we actually will not own our unit until it is completed. Due to an incompetent builder this is taking way too long.
My most recent beef about living here are some of the residents and their passive aggressive manner in trying to force their neighbours to conform to their will. One thing I am not is a conformist. There is a private Facebook group for our condo that is starting to look like a 4th grade playground with people talking about other people's curtains, balcony netting to dissuade pidgeons, and specifically our flowers and doormat were mentioned. So I made a comment on the forum that "We need to be careful not to micro manage our neighbour's lives". It's already proven an unpopular post. What I don't understand is that some of these people are actually stressed about these stupid silly little issues and rather than actually knocking on their neighbour's door to discuss them, they rant about it online. My advice is for them to get a life. Life is way too short to worry about the small stuff.
It goes without saying I am still yearning to have a house again. The condo nazis are all the more reason. Just to be more neighbourly my doormat is now inside. I hope they can sleep better now. LOL
