The music from the neighbors downstairs has been loud every night. Sometimes until 2 in the morning.
I’ve tried knocking on the door and nothing has happened – it’s too loud and they can’t hear me knocking.
So tonight I stomped on the floor. Probably five times. Just once.
20 minutes later there is a knock on my door and two police officers are standing in my doorway. The guys had called 911.
The officer said that she was able to hear the music and had asked them to turn down the bass. We went into the bedroom and I couldn’t hear anything – she said the music was still on but they’d turned the bass down and why hadn’t I called about it before? I said I had called about it – to the building manager. I explained I’m sure they had other more important things to worry about than noise complaints. She explained that yes this was a tenant/landlord dispute but to call 911 if it ever happened again.
I can’t sleep. I don’t know what to do. I’m going to call the landlord tomorrow so she knows what happened. Am I the one being unreasonable and that boys will be boys? Should I just up and move? Is it just asking for trouble to live above this kind of bullshit? My brain hurts.
At least they didn’t have video cameras filming Cops.
