I have lived in an apartment since I was 19 years old. But I have never had this current problem before.
My neighbors have extremely loud sex at 3am and wake us up!
Monday morning, at 3 am, we were woken up by their bed violently hitting our wall. Then came the screaming. Joe and I were both up. And couldn't go back to sleep. We were both pissed. So that morning before work, I left a short polite note on their door. "Could you please move your bed away from the wall so we can't hear you at 3am? Thanks- the neighbors on the other side of the wall."
So all quiet until this morning... at 3am. But this time it wasn't the bed, it was her, SCREAMING at the top of her lungs. Her voice woke us up. We could hear ever word she said. Think about your walls, how loud would she have to be to have ever word made out? Then the bed banging started. It's embarrassing and annoying. How stupid and inconsiderate do you have to be to know you are loud enough to wake up the neighbors and continue to do it anyway??
So I'm thinking about talking to the apartment office today. I don't want them kicked out or fined or anything, but I gave them my note and nothing has changed. I think they need a warning from the office. Maybe the office has had this problem before and knows how to handle it.
I know there are certain things you have to live with while living in an apartment so close to other people. But having my wall hit at 3am shouldn't be one of them.
So tell me what you think. Am I way off base here? Should I just let it go and continue to be annoyed at 3am?
