I'm 19, nearing 20. She's done this my entire life. Like I said, I've asked politely, calmly, and tactfully for her to knock and respect my privacy. Something along the lines of, "I'm not trying to hide anything from you. I have always let you and dad in my room right away, just knock first and wait for a response. It's not like I'm going to say no or anything." You'd think I'd be used to it by now. Instead, I feel like I'm being driven gradually insane by the complete lack of privacy, the surprise flings of the door, and the inability to listen to my music in mid-day without (at the very least) hearing a voice yell for me to turn it down.Originally Posted by 21%
I'd be more than happy to make a compromise. Thing is, it doesn't matter if it's noon or midnight, either way the music will be a definite no.
It's 4 AM here right now. She must have awakened to go to the bathroom or something, because she just now flung the door open to see if I had any music playing. I have earbuds in...not even any music playing, either. That's the thing, she won't hear music, but she'll try to surprise me to catch me listening to music even it it's not audible out of the room!
Same thing happened the other night. I had NO audio playing, whatsoever. She busted in and yelled, "turn it off!" I swear, she either A. makes this stuff up to try to catch me listening to music or B. literally thinks it's happening.
I just can't wait to move the hell out...thankfully I'm almost done getting my AAS. Now to find a decent job. Let me tell you, this city's job market is worthy of another rant in and of itself.
