Though I shouldn’t be surprised, and in actuality annoyed would best describe the irrate feeling I have right now, the inconsiderateness of undergraduates greek members at this institution astound me, particularly the men. Today was graduation and thus it seems that about 10 of the 38 residents in this house have vacated the premises. Of the remaining members about 7-10 of them are stomping, talking with outdoor voices, slamming doors, and more or less just not realizing that there are people other than themselves to concern themselves with. Someone left this house earlier singing “Leaving on a jet plane” – yeah, not quite amusing.
Outdoors is a totally different story. There are men and women at DKE screaming, yelling for extended periods of time (it might be a competition), throwing chairs and glass bottles, and more or less egging one another on in their competitions for masculinity. I’m sure the fireworks the drunken DKEs are fond of are on their way too.
It’s 2:48am… on Sunday. I’d would have liked to get to bed around 1am, but got wrapped up in something on Animal Planet. I instead got ready for bed around 2am, when the bars closed. Big mistake.
Days like this are a royal pain in the arse. Fortunately, they don’t happen all the time, but when there is a “special” occasion, it does happen. I would generally call next door to ask them to quiet down, but by the longevity of the noise, that wouldn’t do any good. The cops aught to do the trick – I hope.
So glad most folks go home tomorrow. I HOPE most of the DKE boys go along with them.
