Life at № 42 by E.M. Coutinho
I finally decided to get a sign having been woken up today by the doorbell and the consequent dog barking. I ran downstairs flustered, stopped at the inter-phone to say I’ll be right there, all the while thinking it was a delivery. When I get to the gate a small woman asks me if I READ THE BIBLE. She waves her bible at me while she’s doing this. I felt like taking away her bible and beating her with it. The worse thing is she’s been here before and we’ve already sent her away. Once the sign is up if this ever happens again I’ll feel entitled to be very rude. I just don’t grasp this idea that people think they can bother other people this way. It’s infuriating.
