Potential Plans For Noisy Neighbors

Every day upstairs our neighbors are obnoxiously inconsiderate and noisy. Hubby went to talk to them once and the guy said "F--K you" and said to call the cops when Hubby threatened to do so. There was no reasoning with these imbeciles.

We have complained and written complaints as instructed to the owners. It appears they didn't do anything about it.

We called the cops once and they can't do anything since it is inside the apartment. Actually it was 4th of July after we returned from our date. They were hitting the wall and jumping making the apartment vibrate. I hit the wall and yelled to STOP! The Buffalo just continued even more. 

When they get louder, we yell, especially Hubby when he is home.  He has the louder voice. Lately, it seems when we yell or/and hit the wall asking them to stop, they do it even more.

As a matter of fact, before the cop returned to his car, the idiot stomped just to show how much he really cared or was concerned.

I am not talking about regular walking and noises you hear in an old cheaply built apartment building. We realize we will hear some every day noises.

I am talking about stomping like buffaloes, jumping so hard shaking lighting fixtures and the whole apartment complex, kids and adults running up and down or rolling stuff, it grates on our nerves and patience, when it is nearly every single day. 

When it was the one guy that originally moved in we had no complaints. Then a roommate moved in. We believe he is the one being obnoxious and started the stomping. Then the wobbly walking baby who is less than a year old and its mother moved in. I can't say for sure how many are on the lease but we see at least 2 couples and the baby regularly. They have people who come and go, overnights. It is like Grand Central Station.

My Hubby and I agree we shouldn't stoop to their level.  However, they've made our lives stressful. We dread certain times of the day knowing they will be home.

I've had many thoughts and fantasies of ways to make them stop. But some could get me in legal trouble as well as I wouldn't have the heart to go through with it anyways but those fantasies would be so much fun!

The past few days, we have been doing a few things to attempt to annoy them, especially when they are sleeping. One day the girl came home with the baby and he was sleeping. So once they entered the apartment, I started banging the wall where I thought the baby was and I woke it up. I heard it start crying. I know it can be a break for the mother when the baby naps. I happily ruined that mother's free time that day.

One night, we blasted the TV in the bedroom knowing their bedroom is right on top of ours. I have blasted the  stereo system only for a few minutes, just to wake them up.  We bang doors, and I have a bell I ring when it is all quiet.

But I don't think they are getting the message as clear as we want. So I am going to go to Wallyworld and buy a whistle and/or horn and a bouncy ball.   When they are sleeping, I will use these items. I am not going to sit there and bounce the ball or whistle continuously. It won't be that blatant. When I don't hear anything, which means they are sleeping or at least the baby is sleeping, I will bounce the ball or whistle] until I hear stirring upstairs then I will stop. Wait for a few minutes, until it is quiet; Then do it over and over until I am satisfied.

I want them to see how annoying little things can be. I want them sleep deprived. I am tired of their bullshit.

We are still trudging through obstacles to be able to move out of here. Of course, nothing goes smoothly for us..but we are determined to do whatever we have to do to get out of here. We will be in a home in the country on almost 3 acres as soon as we can.


  1. I certainly feel for you. That is just awful and they will not stop. People like that never do. The only resolve I see is moving. Thankfully my neighbors are only on one side of me. No one above me and I'm on the end. It's not bad. I can't complain there. Too bad your landlord won't do anything. Hope you can move out soon. Hugs.

    1. Thanks Barb. We are working hard on getting out of here because as you said they won't stop and the landlord doesn't care as long as they get the money. Some days are a lot worse than others.It is quiet only when they are not home. But once they drive up, the atmosphere changes. Thanks for stopping by and being an awesome follower!
