The pounding upstairs continues...
Well, I finally called the leasing office today about the neighbor upstairs. Over the past week or so we've had increasing noise level from upstairs; stuff being dropped on the floor, loud voices, seriously hours of pacing at 2am in high heels on what we've now confirmed is a wood floor in her bedroom over our's. I told him that I can handle the noise upstairs in the rest of the apartment to a degree but the noise over our bedroom has just GOT to stop. She woke both hubby and I up (from a Nyquil induced sleep from me which usually means I'm out cold) this weekend stomping around in her bedroom from 2am-4:30am with a grand finale of noisy sex to boot.
I explained to the leasing office how much noise is being transfered into our bedroom from a lack of any kind of sound proofing combined with her just absolutley LOUD life-style. So the leasing office is going to send her a stern letter.
I asked what then. He said that if the noise level upstairs isn't going down to let them know and they'll send her a more threatening letter.
I sighed and said not to be cynical but how long would you like me to wait before calling you back because I've already explained to this girl exactly what is going on that's causing us the disturbance and she doesn't care or try to change. He said give it a week.
I did ask about the possibility of carpeting her bedroom to give us SOME relief and he said it wasn't likely they'd do that in an occupied apartment. I don't see why not....they waited until after she'd moved in to completely remodel her kitchen and bathroom.
It doesn't help at all either that the resident manager that we're supposed to be able to call for cases like this NEVER answers her phone or returns messages. I've tried like 5 or 6 times. :o( Sorry to vent so long, I'm just really down to about my last nerve with this whole thing.
