My neighbors one behind me, one next door decided to have a show down with noise. I mean seriously loud window rattling noise. Yelling back and forth. Oooooommmmmmmmpaaaaapaaaahhhh music. All day starting at 1pm. Didn't stop until well after 2:30 am. The more one complained the worse it got. We were stuck in the middle. Noticed the only English version song that wasn't translated into Spanish was "Ice,Ice Baby" Bad word around here.

I see looking out the window the Oompa Loompa's still have the party tent up. This Lolly Pop Kid wants to beat them up!

Munky.
I will not hesitate to call the police about loud noise late at night. Most localities have ordinances saying you have the right to "quiet enjoyment of your property." I'd have called the police at midnight.

Around here quiet time starts at 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. The police start driving slow in the summertime listening to anyone having a party in their backyard and it is too loud after ten p.m. If the offending piece of equipment is your music, and they have to come back a second time, you will find your equipment being confiscated.

Our upstairs neighbor found out the no noise after 10 pm included using their washer and dryer. They both thrum through our apartment. They also found out I don't mind getting up at 3 am to vacuum and waking their little one up. She loves to run and carry on. They found that out after a 1 am vacuum marathon they had staged.

I think is was a sneeze...

Yes, ingestion helps on many levels with a head cold.

When I lived in a ground floor apartment the neighbor upstairs got what must have been the world's largest subwoofer for christmas.

My parents were visiting and we were jolted out of bed at 2 am by every window and door in my apartment rattling and a constant BOOM BOOM! I reported it to the complex management, it stopped for a while and then happened again, and lets just say, he didn't live there any more.

It would be much harder to remedy that type of situation in our townhouse since these aren't run by rental management.

I'm ready to pack up and head to the farm. My boarder/tenant is driving me crazy. I use the clothes line to dry my clothes. In the winter I hang them by the woodstove. I haven't used the dryer since 1996 (long story short, almost burned the house down, haven't used it since). Said tenant wants to use it EVERY DAY. I have said that there is a laundromat where he can use the dryer but my dryer is not available. I never said it was and I'm sick of being whined at about the dryer. It doesn't help he's only paid 1/2 the rent...I'm tempted to boot him out.

I've had to move anything remotely breakable to low shelves, the vibrations from the washer and dryer upstairs vibrate things off the walls and shelves all the time. Two weeks ago when the glass globe in the kitchen fell, it was because of these vibrations...I had an injured cat over that. Not happy!!!
