Something like a survey
Hello. I just found this site today. I was looking up information on noisy upstairs neighbors and what to do about them. I'm glad that I'm not alone on being bothered in such ways, that it's not just me being over sensitive.
I am wondering what is the most annoying thing a neighbor can do.... in your opinion.
For me it would be 1. Extreme noise (stomping, radio, T.V., dropping that bowling ball that the Landlord obviously gives as a move in gift to each and every upper level tenant).
It's sad that I have to "train" the people upstairs. When they get out of control, (I have two surround sound systems-- one in the bedroom 500 watts 100 watt subwoofer, and one in the living room 600 watts 100 watts subwoofer)that I gladly turn up making sure the subwoofer is on my computer desk pushed right up against the wall. I leave the apt. and let them enjoy. Needless to say, it has a soothing calming effect on them... like white noise does for me. Afterwards they show that yes, they actually can listen to their radio at decent levels and that they are actually very capable of walking.... not running from room to room.
I don't mind hearing noise from neighbors appliances, or even themselves, but when I can't hear my not even loudly turned radio, T.V. or my windows vibrate from their joy of dropping from swinging chandeliers, than it's a problem. I have tried to be nice. Some people's mind just has not developed to reciprocating that. I don't like to be rude but I only have one door mat and that lays outside of my apartment door.
Lastly,,,, has anyone ever had the problem with neighbors running all the hot water on purpose so that you wont have anything but cold water? Here in New York the landlord pays the water bill so most tenants don't care how much water they use but I'm surprised the landlord doesn't either.
