- Wedding: April 1999
We live in an older style duplex/townhouse.
It’s a two-story house, with a garage and drive-way on each side. Split down the middle so we each have two stories, drive-way and garage. The wall we share is the wall that goes through the middle of the house along the stairs and the full bath upstairs.
– They play REALLY loud music. Usually not past 11pm. (With a lot of base and trumpets.)
-They let their kids run/stomp up and down the stairs, banging against the wall at the same time. Whenever Dad goes outside the kids have to follow him and scream him name over and over again (usually well past 10pm).
-The use their garage as a play room whenever it’s warm enough, so the Mom will play loud music in there that echos….it can be heard up to a block away at times.
-When they have parties (usually from noon till 11pm) they use all available street parking and allow people to park their cars on the grass (super tacky!). They use the back area as the BBQ area where they play REALLY REALLY loud music and have 30+ people all talking at once (so I can’t have the windows open on the East side of the house unless I want to hear annoying music all day). They use the front of the house as a place for the guys to show off their crappy cars and smoke (so I can’t have the windows open on the West side of the house because of the smoke that stinks up everything).
-We only have windows on the East side and West side of the house….so I have NO air flow at all through the house whenever they have parties.
-They don’t speak English. So I can’t try to ask them to quiet it down at all. I’ve tried to talk to the Mom (She seems nice.); but she doesn’t understand a word I say. I could call her a mother flipper and she would just smile and walk into her house.
-I work nights! At the latest I try to go to sleep by 9pm so I can get 6 hours of sleep before work the next morning.
-They have kinked up the ONLY hose we share so badly…that barely a trickle of water comes out. They’ve already duct taped it to try to fix a leak they caused too (not that duct tape is bad, but if I break something I go buy a new one!) and they broke the sprayer attachment I bought for us to use.
I can’t wait till we save up enough money to buy a house. I want at least a half acre of land! I can’t stand living so damn close to people that are so inconsiderate.
I understand that people want to have parties. But if you are living literally FEET from another person you should have some common sense about what noise levels are appropriate at what times. Or ask your neighbors if there are any times of the day that they would like you to keep the noise level down.
COMMON SENSE IS DEAD!
P.S. Within the first few days of them moving in my Fiance tried to introduce himself to the Father…and he was totally ignored. The guy actually TURNED away from him and pretended like he wasn’t even there. What an asshole! So we haven’t even tried to talk to him since. I try to completely avoid him at all costs.
P.P.S. I can’t use google as a translator to write them a letter because I don’t want to sound like I’m demanding things from them or being rude.
