Yesterday I was outside on the curb checking my mail and I noticed this one guy who lives in that building hanging out outside (he does this a lot). So I figure I'll see if he's aware and if not, let him know and see if he'll offer to look into it out of courtesy.

So I walk over, say hi. Then I bring it up, saying "hey, I've noticed lately that there's a smoke alarm that's been going off and it seems like it's coming from your building."

Before I could continue with anything else, he goes: "I wouldn't know anything about that.'

So I say "ok, thanks" and start turning around to walk back to my building, and he goes "by the way your car is loud when you start it up, so tit-for-tat."

And I sort of went...

Said "uh I see" and just walked away.

So basically... he does or he doesn't know whose alarm is dying and he took it to mean I was complaining and so he wanted to have a comeback with his own complaint??

Meanwhile I rarely ever leave these days before 9am or after 9pm. So it's not like I'm starting my car in sleep/quiet hours, and I only come and go maybe two or three times a day max. So I'm not constantly cold starting / revving.

And besides that, I don't even have headers, just an axleback.

Anywho guess common courtesy isn't a thing anymore on either end.
Your car wasn't loud at all before so unless you changed something he really had no legit complaint.
Guess he felt he had to maintain the upper hand in the non situation.

I had the catted UEL headers last year for like 3 months? But otherwise since last October my car has been the same as when I drove you to @Sapphireho's place two years ago. Just the Nameless axleback, no tune.

Not to mention we live in the downtown area, where we routinely get crappy fartcan hondas, loud ass domestics, and eardrum-splitting harleys redlining down the block.

If he's choosing literally that hill to die on then he must not be very bright.

I am now firmly in the "they don't make things like they used to" camp. Someone get me my walker.
WTF are you doing, so you have all the wheels are bent? My wife drive like a lunatic in her WRX, but she havenít bent her summer or winter wheel sets.

Hence, I offer you my 10% rule. 10% of the people, I pay no never mind. It doesn't matter why (drunk, impaired, on drugs, stupid, ignorant, crazy or whatever) they are that way.

I just shrug my shoulders and move on (unless they are hurting someone).

Almost certainly stock. I bought 4 new tires when I was told only one wheel was bent, and can't exactly return them. While the stock STI wheels are rather heavy (28.4 lbs each), most of the lighter 19x8.5 replacements I was interested in are $500 - $600 per wheel. The OEM wheels are $400 from the local dealer parts department.

Also the car is a lease, and depending upon how the next year goes I'll most likely hand it in once the term is up. It would need non-bent OEM wheels at that point. Handing it over really depends upon the trade in value vs the lease buyout, which slightly (if at all) depends upon how well the 2022 is received and availability come August. I suppose also if the shop that replaced the wheel reported it to Carfax as an accident. Which, I mean, it was. Should probably check that.

That sucks. We had something similar happen here. We kept hearing a beep for weeks, but couldn't track it down. I finally found it. A previous owner put a carbon monoxide detector sitting on the rafters in the attic.

Sound like your neighbor was being a jerk. I'm with humfrz; not worth worrying about.

I don't know if it's just me but is anyone else using MS Teams feel like they're being tracked.

Since WFH, our company has been very heavy with the use of MS Teams, as soon as the computer is booted up Teams is ready to go, showing your availability etc.. move away from the computer for a short period the little 'green' icon changes to 'yellow' and a timer clicks in showing how long the person has been away..

I don't like it as it feels like you are having to constantly keep your computer busy to keep the little 'green' icon fucking green.. yuck!! I need a break from this shit!!

Can't switch off teams as that is the primary tool for contacting colleagues.... Double yuck!!!

You should be able to set your status manually? I know it does what you are saying, but for the most part nobody cares if it goes idle in the last two places I worked. People take a shit once in a while after all. Or answer the phone. Or make lunch. Etc.
