Just be careful and watch your back. You never know, your neighbors and the landlord may all be in it together.

Maybe you should pray or move. I think both are a wise course of action.

wow thanks guys. you are way more helpful and supportive than the toher places i've gone.

i don't THINK the landlord is part of this. it's an interesting idea though. i never thought about that.

i know i know i can move but obviously that screws up the lease. i can't afford that right now. i know i'm leaving once the lease is up in may though

Okay, you may not find this helpful but I would put carpeting up wherever you think the sound is penetrating whether it be on the floor or the walls. The carpeting will help diffuse the noise. Then at least you can prove that you have done everything that you could to correct the situation. And I have actually seen this done when parents didn't want to hear the stereo from their son's room. On the walls it makes a rather interesting conversation piece. I know it sounds kooky but it worked for them.

I know what they mean!!

My kids and I love making smoothies.I bought a twenty dollar blender when my twenty year old blender broke.My husband complained about how loud it was and threw it away.He bought me a forty dollar one and it is no better.These things are just garbage anymore.If he has his way this one is headed to the same place.We will definitely try the next one first.Your neighbor however is just being petty.We would never complain about something so stupid if we were in an apartment.

No doubt.

I'd no more purchase a new blender then I would stop using the one I already owned. Sounds like these are the kind of neighbors you can never please so there's no sense even trying. Screw them.
