I heard the drunk above me who stomps on his floor at non-existent noises up at the front door, the furthest he usually ventures out of his place. He was talking to a guy I've heard him talking to often, an older guy who gossips like he's in a female sewing circle. They were trying to talk low, but what I could make out was about me being a noisy person that the drunk has been bothered with. This is really out of line. He's the one who stomps and behaves like a raving maniac at times, so I should be complaining about him. Instead he's gossiping about me for no reason. I'm going to have to confront him.
Edit: This whole thing is making me wonder if I might be yelling or making noises in my sleep, and that's what he hears. He usually stomps and tells me to knock it off when I'm just sitting reading with no media playing; if he does it when I'm sleeping, I don't hear it. I often fall asleep just by slouching over on my futon. Sometimes I'm laying on a cell charging cable that goes over the top of the futon to an outlet behind it. Several times I have found that plug ripped out of the wall when I have woken up. That means I must have been pulling on the cord in my sleep. It would have taken a lot of force to pull this out. I'm not sure how I do it or if I'm doing anything else in my sleep like pounding. I might have to record myself to find out.
