Remember that movie Hard Candy? The movie where Ellen Page is so unlikeable she makes you root for a pedophile?(Not my joke.)

I am growing annoyed at seeing all these junk threads in the forum.

Me too! I guess off-topic has been mostly junk threads for a few years now, but we've now reached a new level.

To be fair there is only one actual Junk Thread. For some reason people keep posting their junk into other threads.

It's almost like they have junk on the brain.

Trying to sleep and there is small child crying in the apartment next door. For some reason I'm finding it extremely unsettling and I can't quite place exactly why.

The insulation is good and I can barely hear it, yet my skin is crawling, my toes are curling, and my stomach is twisting at the sound. I have no clue why.

Why don't you go upstairs under the pretense of having a headache and asking to borrow some asprins and casually ask if everything is okay while you are there?

If your neighbour asks why, explain that your headache has just made you more sensitive to sound and you could help notice the crying child but you understand this is the sort of thing children do.

If you play it right you will get the sort of reassurance you want without looking like a nosy busy body.

We are genetically programmed to find that sound unsettling. It's ancient instincts and whatnot.

Is it wrong to post my own posts to ShitRedditSays under an alt on Reddit?

It is actually next door, and not upstairs, and in my time zone it was 1:30 in the morning, well past the appropriate time to go knocking on the neighbor's door. I went out and had a smoke, then came back in. The crying had stopped, but I still felt unsettled and had trouble sleeping for a while. It seems my bedroom shares a wall with a small child's bedroom.

I am now extremely bothered by this. I had a particularly taxing day at work yesterday and went straight home to go to bed, rather than going out like I usually do. Sometimes my Saturday nights involve having a female friend over for the night. The realization that there is a little kid sleeping just on the other side of the wall, the very wall my headboard is pushed up against, is really bothering me now. I can't stop thinking about how some of those noises may be making their way through the wall and are being heard by a little kid...

Don't take this as a personal attack...but a new user called SpiffyGriff can't be that good at what he claims.

One cannot learn all of that in high school or be claim to be a "Professional". Unless he went to a secondary school or career center doubling as a high school.

The guy sitting across from me looks like a young Dwight K. Schrute. Would that be considered a compliment?

If she is a changeling then how can you be certain she is really a she and not a he?
