Trying to be Brave

Most of the people in the building in which I live are nice. I've been here 2 years now and while I'm sure I still haven't met everyone who lives here, I'm pretty happy knowing the people I do. With maybe one exception. Three doors down from me live a couple (unmarried) and her little dog. Pretty much any time you pass their door, the smell of cannabis comes through loud and clear. The girlfriend will smile and say hello when she sees me, and that's about it. The boyfriend is something else altogether. I'm still not sure what to make of him and I try to avoid him at all costs. I've heard him screaming at her various times. Sometimes they're in the hallway, outside the apartment. He's VERY loud. Once, the three of us were in the elevator together and all of a sudden he began screaming at her. He was so loud that my ears were ringing when they got out of the elevator. And I was shaking from fear. Last night, I was getting ready to go downstairs to get my mail. I heard him screaming at her. He went on for quite some time. I heard him slam their apartment door and I listened to see if he was taking the elevator down. And he did. So, I waited for a little while before venturing out my door to go for mail. And sure enough, there he was, standing by the elevator. For some odd reason, he was very nice to me when I got in. It was just the two of us and I was very uncomfortable. But he was polite and held the door for me and wished me a good night. I was very grateful for that. I guess you never know. He's someone who has gotten my attention and I will continue to try to avoid him as much as I can! Claudia photo is mine

I feel sorry for her if he is always yelling at her, I think if I heard it and then he left I would go check and make sure she is ok. I was married to a guy like that and he had me isolated from everyone. I understand you being afraid of him though, sometimes they can switch on a dime

@CRK109 Yes, you get like that because your embarrassed and humiliated and you don't dare talk back to them or its worse behind closed doors. They are the controllers so you try not to make waves or cry in front of other people, that makes it worse yet. I feel for her, I know exactly what she is going through. Its a terrible way to live.
