I just want to sleep in the tent with my children without having to hear a woman being cruel to her daughter. It's really not that much to ask! Both nights that we slept in the tent, we were woken up a little after 7 by my nasty neighbor shrieking at her poor daughter for half an hour. Every request she makes of her comes out in a terrifyingly angry shriek, including the very first communication of the day.
"THE ALARM WENT OFF! IT IS TIME TO GET OUT OF BED! GET OUT OF BED RIGHT NOW! NOW GET THE COMB AND GET IN HERE TO COMB YOUR HAIR BEFORE I COUNT TO THREE! NOW GO GET YOUR CLOTHES! NOW NOW NOW! FASTER FASTER FASTER! DO IT BEFORE I COME IN THERE AND SMACK YOUR FACE!"
Normally I hear this through the walls, but it's sure different being outside and hearing it through the open window. My heart breaks for this poor little girl, who is actually very quiet and well-behaved, by the way. I did actually talk to her mom about the yelling a few weeks ago, and she stopped for a bit. It's back on with a vengeance now though. Seriously, is it so hard to go in and give your daughter a kiss on the forehead, maybe crawl into bed beside her, tell her you love her, and then get up together? Wouldn't that make for a nicer day for everyone? How do people wake up so angry? It's bothering me a lot. I'm sharing my feelings.
