Boot, Boot...it won't get any better. Move the dryer out to the curb.

We were the top-floor tenants in both apartments we have rented. First one had two girls who must have been on their own for the first time. Stereo blasting all the time so that we could hear the lyrics! I would break out in hives it would get so bad, and we'd leave to go visit his S & BIL or my parents. Finally one of the girls moved out when the other girl's boyfriend moved in...and we never heard anything from them after that.

In the second apartment it was newlyweds below us. Woke up one night to take a little walk down the hall but before I got out of bed I heard *ahem* happy noises from below. Do I get up and disturb them? But I gotta GO! As soon as I stated to walk around it got quiet.

We've lived in our own homes ever since. Not a guarantee to peace and quiet all the time but it's a definite improvement.

He doesn't have that much stuff-probably would take me 45 minutes to pack everything and move it to the curb...tempting.

I have an answering machine. When I am busy doing something (which is most of the time), I just let the machine/voice mail pick up. For the past month, I have been getting calls 3x/day from a number I do not recognize. The caller never leaves a message. I find that extremely annoying. Why call if you are not going to leave a message? And, why call back and then hang up? I have changed my message to say that if you call and hang up, don't expect a call back.

^^^ Probably an automated call coming from a tele-marketer. I usually pick up and hang up without saying a word.

If you do a search for the number, you can often find out who the caller was.

I often google numbers and I can usually find out who it is.

I had a company calling on behalf of Verizon Wireless trying multiple times a week to sell me a new plan, that I don't want or need. They would only let it ring 3 times, and I was usually at work. I finally got a chance to speak to them and gave them an ear full. They haven't called since.

For sure it is some sales pitch, they never leave a message.
