A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

If you don't complain, nothing happens.

It's late afternoon and the guy two units away has decided to have a party- loud music, thumping bass, animated conversation- you get the drift. Obviously this guy hasn't read the strata by-laws re disturbing other residents' peace and quiet or he's an inconsiderate prick. Either way, I've made note of his indiscretion and sent an email to the strata manager. I don't care that he's an owner and not a tenant, this sort of shit is not on as far as I'm concerned. >:-(
