So our neighbors havent been the best people to share a wall with.. this is the most recent event that we’very had to deal with.
The fire department just left our building.. our neighbors smoke alarms throughout their entire apartment were going off for about half an hour, FI went and knocked on their door to make sure everything was OK. No answer. Cool, neighbors, cool. It kept going off for another 10 minutes or so, so we called the apartment security person to have it checked out.. He was over an hour away and told us to call 911.
We didn’t want to go that far just I case it wasn’t anything serious, but I also didn’t want to take any chances of it being a real fire. So the fire department comes, by then the smoke alarm had started going off again, they pound on the door and do their whole “FIRE DEPARTMENT, OPEN UP!”.. The SOB’s don’t even answer the door for them!!
Now that the fire department left we heard them outside in the breezeway!
The only reason we called the fire department was just in case it was a fire, and we couldn’t tell if it was the beginnings of one or not, because we didn’t think they were home because they didn’t answer their door (while their alarms were going off). There are 8 apartments in our building.. That would be a whole lot of unhappy people if it truly was a fire and we didn’t call.
FI and I have our whole lives in this apartment, we would literally lose everything if something like that happened.. I would rather overreact in this case than do nothing and lose everything.

@lanf5046: I sure hope you have tenant’s insurance.

Wonder if they were maybe doing something illegal in there? And if you don’t have it already, definitely get renters insurance in case those bozos ever start a real fire

@mrsmeyers84: They smoke pot at 10:00 every saturday morning in their bathroom (no smoke alarms in the bathroom).. Sure hazes up our bathroom!
Luckily we’re required to have renters insurance.. They’re just a bunch of idiots next door.

@lanf5046: Does the Apartment Managment know about the pot smoking. In some places if the tenents are doing something illegal, the managment is liable. Time for an annyomous note to management…

@peachacid: We thought about moving, but we’re planning on buying a house in the fall so we decided to stick it our here a few more months!
Just had to vent about tonight! Usually the problems are just annoyances that we ignore after a few minutes, so not normally anything too too bad.

@KoiKove: smoking pot in your own home/apartment isn’t illegal in a lot of areas, my townhome allows smoking and pot is legal here so people smoke it.
@lanf5046: Do you live in a smoking building? Is smoking allowed or is pot legal in your area? I hate encouraging people to get involved in other peoples business but smoking can be dangerous and apartment fires are no joke! Sorry you have such butt heads for neighbors 🙁

Wow, how annyoing. They sound like peaches. Only a few more months, so hang in there!
I’m so over apartment living too. Mine is ghetto as fuck. A shooting a few months ago just a few feet from my door, roaches despite being a clean freak (though not in a few months YAY), and just this morning the landscaping crew outside my window were chatting about their times in prison. Great! Only another week and a half here for me.

@lanf5046: Jesus, how much pot are they smoking? I smoke pot, and I’ve always lived in an apartment and my fire alarm never went off!
