5. The talker
Whether you’re running 15 minutes late -- wet hair, wrinkled shirt, Uber waiting -- for the most important meeting of your life, or returning home -- juggling luggage and two weeks of mail with a too-much-whiskey-last-night headache that no amount of airplane booze could fix -- from the longest trip anyone has ever taken, this is the neighbor who will literally block you from the elevator or stairs for painful idle chitchat. “Where you going?”, “Where ya been?”, “Is your water pressure weird?”, “Did you see someone new moved into 304?”, “Can you BELIEVE this weather? I bet Dolores Park is gorgeous today.”
6. The mute
You don’t want to be best friends with your neighbors (Melrose Place was fun to watch, but ending up dead in the pool isn’t your thing), but this guy won’t make eye contact no matter how many times you say "Hi", or “Hey”, or "Is your water pressure weird?"
7. The couple that keeps their toddler in the closet... literally
You were pretty sure that once the baby grew up, they’d move out of their one bedroom. Instead, they had a second baby and the toddler now lives in their hallway closet.
8. The old lady down the hall who will die there
Two words: rent control. In fact, at one point, she was probably a baby in a closet in that very unit.
