all-night noises from across the street
I am used to living in an extremely quiet country home. I just got married and moved to an apartment in town. There are only two units in our building, one is empty... lucky for us. The problem is the house across the street. Every member of the family is loud, speaks loudly, yells, calls out from across the yard, laughs loudly, and it goes on until four in the morning, as if they require no sleep at all. Even the young children are running around yelling in and out of the home at such late hours!
I do not wish to involve any authorities at first. I want to go over and introduce myself and speak to them about how I am losing sleep. I am seeking advice on how best to approach this. Should I just make a social call to establish a relationship, then go back a week later for a more serious discussion?
