Question of the Day

So the Spudsband and I recently sold our home and moved into a smaller apartment. It's very nice and we have a gorgeous view; I really have no complaints.

There is, however, a... quirk that will take some getting used to.

We have a vent in the bathroom that I assumed was for heat/cooling, but it isn't. It appears to be just for ventilation, and it must just run the length of the building. So, there's this hollow tube connecting all of the apartments above and below mine. The result? You can hear things going on in other apartments when you're in the bathroom. Dogs barking. Conversations. And one guy thinks he's the next American Idol.

Every. Morning. We get a new performance.

And, ahem, he's not exactly in the final two.

So Shakers, what's quirky about your home?
