Hmm....deja-vu..... I was in a similar situation sometime back -- old woman and her adult (35 y.o.) son. Fought the walls down everyday (and every night)... I did try calling the cops, but over here the cops never come when they are supposed to (they asked me for taxi fare and tea money...). Luckily for me, the son got so worked up that one day he went to his office (an auto garage) and blew his brains out with his dead dad's revolver (apparently while sitting inside some customer's mercedes benz). The old woman vacated soon after that, and I ve been in peace since then.... thechat-bounces at lists.evolt.org wrote on 23-09-2004 11:58:54 AM: > > We live in a building, above a man who's always drunk, and his son (25) > who's no better.
