I live in a rooming house which is kinda crazy. There's a tv room with sofas and a dining table. There's a community kitchen with our own locked cupboards, and 2 of all the appliances. We have our own bedrooms (with locks) with adjacent bathrooms. People get mad when they leave their unlabeled food on the kitchen counters and it disappears. The crazy thing is that the remote control for the TV has been stolen 3 TIMES(!) by people who eventually moved out. The landlord replaced the remote that goes with the tv 1 time. Later on we got a digital cable box and remote. That remote disappeared too! I can only think of two reasons:
1. Someone doesn't have the self restraint to NOT STEAL any old thing within their reach, even if it does them no good by itself. (But yet there are a few houseplants and magazines in the TV room).
2. Somebody p***** off the thief re: TV usage so they took the remotes to get revenge.
My confession is that I hate the fact that my neighbors are so loud! They holler incessantly to each other, rather than talk. Their laughter is even worse! I don't think they are capable of inside voices!
