No matter whether it is apartments, dormitories or neighborhoods, you will always encounter enemies when living with other people. It doesn’t matter if it’s a nightmare HOA person, students throwing illegal parties, or neighbors who don’t know the property lines, you probably have a story about a terrible neighbor. So anytime Tick tock brings to light a new terrible neighbor story, it’s always exciting for the internet.
But user @horsethey brings to light an issue that she isn’t even involved in (yet). Eve’s video tells that she recently moved into a new apartment complex. She’s been moving for about a month now and has finally managed to replace the toilet seat in her apartment that the previous tenants left behind. However, when she opened the toilet seat, she found a note from the previous tenants warning her about her new neighbors.
While the letter names some trustworthy neighbors, the old tenants specifically warn Eve about a “fake AF Karen” who lives below her and is known for calling the police at 3 a.m. while listening to music and allowing “no fun.” The letter also warns Eve about problems with the maintenance team and invites Eve to contact them to learn all about her new apartment complex.
The reaction of the previous tenant may seem dramatic, but dislike of the neighbors or the property management is not uncommon. After to LendingTree, one of the nation’s most popular mortgage lenders, nearly 75 percent of Americans have at least one neighbor they don’t like. The percentage is even higher among apartment dwellers: 79 percent say they dislike at least one neighbor. Given some of the stories we’ve seen on TikTok about roommates, we’re not surprised that the number is so high.
Thanks to the note, most of the comments on TikTok were excited about the drama Eve gets dragged into. “With all due respect, I absolutely NEED to know the tea,” one commenter left. Many people would like this to be part of the standard knowledge when moving into a new apartment. One commenter said: “Honestly, I wish there was a standardized way to pass on the knowledge to a new tenant.” However, some were critical of the former tenants who complained about the music at 3am and agreed , that the so-called “Karen” could be justified. “The people making music at 3am are not my people so… I don’t know what they are,” one commenter wrote. Anyway, we’re definitely interested and need a multi-part series.
