Ugh, I’m just in such a terrible mood now and it’s all their fault. They are playing their music so loud that the bass is vibrating the floor at the other end of my apartment. I called my landlord and left a message, but she did not call back. These people cannont be reasoned with – last time they lied to the landlord and said they were sleeping!
They scream and curse at their kids and let them stay up all night playing video games in the room right below our bedroom. To top it all off, our second bedroom contantly smells like smoke because of them…sometimes it’s not cigarette smoke.
My only hope is that they move out soon because my landlord is trying to get them evicted (it’s a long legal process in Chicago). Most days I can ignore them but this just sucks. The only other thing I can do when this happens is call the police, but I’m afraid that will make it worse in the future.
Please share your stories about your terrible neighbors!

I would call the police on them, it doesn’t sound like it could be much worse:(

Ha! This sounds so familiar to me…luckily we moved out of that situation! I don’t understand how that nasty smoke smell can come up through the floor!! Oh, but I’m pretty sure our downstairs neighbor was a drug dealer. There were ALWAYS people “visiting”. And she didn’t seem like she’s the popular type.

Why don’t you call the police and file a noise complaint, if they are doing drugs like you think having a visit from the police should scare them straight.

So my story isn’t about a truely bad neighbor. but growing up we had a neighbor who was a part of our church and was very religious (so much so he walked up to me and thanked me for choosing life and not having an abortion in front of a large group I was with at a parade). He looked just like Ned Flanders and would chop would in the back yard all the time. I am pretty sure we referred to him as Flanders for many years.

I’d call the police too, it sounds like that’s your only option 🙁

I’m pretty sure my neighbors are dealing drugs. They live in this house next to us and the are loud and all they do is scream at their poor little children. There are 4 couples living in this one house! I’ve called the cops but they don’t do anything. People stop by all times of the night … and the only reason I know is because my German Shepherd goes nuts everytime! She HATES these neighbors! Great judge of character!
I’m waiting for them to move since they are renting and we live in a nice little town… it’s just annoying! I feel your pain!

Forget neighbors, I lived with housemates who smoked (everything) and were loud (with music and yelling and with guys) all day and night. I was only there for 5 months, and I could not move out fast enough!
