I hate to be negative but I am really stressed out because I have two noisey high volume units now to contend with. I hate to do it but I'm going to be writing both of them up. I don't care anymore. It's around 12:30am here and I'm very pissed off. I know I should be grateful that they are not blasting us out of house and home like they do during the day. This is just making my painworse and it makes me walk funny and with a cane no-less. I don't know whom or who I should shuv my cane up first.?... Oh I know now... mad   GURRRR and I have to work in about 9 hours. I'm going to have to take alot of Ginger Root in the morning. OK, I'm going to try and get some sleep and then wake the birds later....hehehehe I can play the same game to but only if my son wasn't in the same appartment.
 
I'm going to ask my assisted housing person what I can do beside write them up which management does nothing about.!!!!
I don't know what else to do? Any suggestions? No I don't have a gun, Not an option.

Oh Hara, that sucks! When I was studying at college i lived in a 5 story high dormitory. I had my own room and ammenities etc, but the NOISE! I complained. I made complaining a sport at which i was a champion. I hated doing it but i wore them down purely by being so annoying and then, as you mentioned: i got early morning 'blast the stereo' payback. I know you cant do that, but it felt soooo good.

Im not sure what you can do- can you talk to the land-lord? And i know its incredibly awful when you are unwell to be deprived of sleep, and now i live in a house where my neighbours have the dog from hell. It barks. It howls. It screams and yells like its the excorcist, so I got really good earplugs and they do the trick. Could you wack in some earplugs and tune the inconsiderates out?

Sending you warm, sleepy vibes-

Hi Hara...when I lived in VA Beach we lived in a condo with six attached units.  The man behind us was a pharamacist and would work all day then go to stay with his girlfriend at night.  He played acid rock music to entertain his dogs when he wasn't home...which was almost always.  The pictures on my walls would shake.  Of course, living between two military bases we had jet noise non stop every single day as they performed touch and goes about a block from our condo.  So that added to the acid rock drove us crazy.  I reported him to the condo association and they said  "He's a pharmacist!"  Who cares what he is!  I left him notes on his gate.  I called the police, who claimed they spoke to him where he worked.  I finally got the head of the condo association to come into my house and listen to what we heard all day and night.  She walked over, opened his gate and there were tons of dog poo piles on his patio, behind the privacy fence.  When she finally met with him inside his house, the health dept was notified due to the filth and dog manure, fleas and piles of garbage left simmering on his floors.

Now I live in NY in a quiet neighborhood where my neighbor power washes his house at the crack of dawn.  Soooo....go ahead and write them up and good luck with that!  I hope someone responds more quickly then they did with me.

My heart goes out to you. When my first child was born, and I was pregnant with my second, like 6 months or so along, my upstairs neighbors liked to bring half the bar patrons home, when the bar closed at 2AM and blast the stereo, and dance around, stumbling around, is more like it, until morning. They invariably woke my toddler, and being pregnant, I wasn't feeling my best and needed sleep. So my toddler would bawl, I mean bawl, for hours. So the upshot of all this, they called the Security Guard on night duty to report my child crying and me possibly abusing him. We shortly thereafter bought a house. It was in my memory one of the absolute worst times of my life. Now I live in a basement apartment which is underneath a young couple with two small children. These children are so well behaved, respectful, and everyone is in bed by 9 PM. We get along famously. Sure, there are times, like suppertime, when I hear them running around upstairs, but it's only for an hour or so, and it's "happy noise", so much easier to handle. I hope you get some relief.

OOH what is it with people anymore, does no one have respect for their fellow man??? I have a neighbor who seems to think we all want to listen to his music all the time. I hate it because when I get home from work I am tired and just want to relax and watch a little TV for a bit, but I have to turn my TV up so loud just to hear it. Some folks only seem to think about themselves. So if its any comfort you arent alone.

I tried the ear plug thing they didn't tune out anything but my fans in my room. Where did you get you ear plugs from?
Me and my son need some good ones. Like the ones they use for the jet airplanes when the people are working on the tarmack. I had some of those given to me and they are already spent, gone, done.

Hara im in Australia, so the products we have access to may be different, but i have really good 'Speedo' brand earplugs that are meant for use while swimming (i have frequent middle ear infections which in turn rupture my eardrums) and i started using them in the pool, but they are so comfy that I use them to sleep if the neighbour's dog is having one of its totally hysterical bark-fests. They block out noise really well and are soft, they dont feel like a foreign object jammed in your ear. My mum bought them for me from a sports store, but I have since seen them at my local pharmacy.

I hope you get some relief, pronto! smurf

Wow, I feel so sorry for all of you.. it's been a long time for me to put up with that kind of noise. I used to live in a apartment upstairs and the man downstairs had a hearing problem.. so his tv was on scream so he could hear it.. unfortunately, we couldn't hear our own.. he did try that battery operated hearing device but that didn't last long. Thank goodness i don't deal with it now with all the issues.. I will say a prayer of sanity for all of you. wink
