Okay, even I admit that this is ridiculous

Tonight's disturbance: my neighbors' whistling tea kettle, which they let go on for five-ten minutes, warbling and oscillating between notes like a pressure cooker, before they turned it down.

I once had a neighbor complain to management about my alarm clock. If you can complain about that, you can probably complain about wee-hours whistling kettles. But I would feel absolutely ridiculous.

LOLZ! Do you think it was due to them dozing off, being otherwise occupied, or in the loo?

Can you lodge an anonymous complaint?

Could have been any of the above ....

It would probably be worth my inquiring how the management company handles complaints. The neighbors are people I already suspect of pushing cigarette butts through the cracks of the balcony floor, where they fall onto my balcony. (Either that, or some other of my neighbors has really good aim.) I don't want them to know who it is who's complained.

It woke me up, darn it, and yet, who am I to deny these people a 1:30 am cup of tea? People ought to be free to use the kettle of their choice in their own apartment. That's why it's a ridiculous situation.
