Knock on the door and say something.  We had to do that alot when we lived in an apartment.  Alot of the time they had no idea how it was coming through the floor and were very nice about it.  Sometimes people just have no clue.

@tksjewelry: Agreed. Or, if you’re friendly with them/know them, do the broom to the ceiling trick. Then they’ll know that you’re hearing them (but ONLY if they’re cool with you/would think it funny. Don’t want them to start riverdance lessons to spite you).

@tksjewelry: Our neighbor knew full well how much noise he was making (we and about half our building knocked on his door numerous times and told him) but he just decided that we were all overreacting and that if he wanted to crash around his apartment at 3am moving furniture, slamming doors and stomping, he damn well would. So we wrote letters to the management until he got warned and then evicted.

@CarolinaCola: Put them and my downstairs neighbors in the same complex.  Allow them to duel it out.  You can live below me any time!

Honestly – if this isn’t a common occurance and it is completely atypical that they make this much noise, I’d ignore it.

I’d only confront them if it becomes a constant problem.

Our neighbor likes to play music. LOUD music. To the point my mirrors & pictures on the wall shake! My husband & I put up with it for almost a year by going over & saying can you turn the music down, nicely. And he did. But the next day it was right back up again! He played it EVERY DAY! Not one day was skipped. Finally we reported him. The music stopped. This week he started playing it again, in his bedroom. WHERE WE SLEEP right beside his wall! So I called our landlord & told her & she said she will deal with him herself! Last time she called the cops to come up here & tell him to turn it down. But she is trying to make him move out (nicely) because she is the sweetest lil old lady ever. But she has had every neighbor that has EVER lived beside him complain about loud music. 

If this is a first, I would ask them nicely to stop though in your situation.

@linguo42: ya, when I managed apartments I took calls and notes seriously.  There is nothing worse that someone stomping around all day all night.  I kicked out a few for noncompliance.  I wish all managers would do that.

@tksjewelry: I wish all managers would do that too. So many of my friends told me “Buy some earplugs, nothing ever gets done about guys like him.” They’d had to deal with similar situations before where they ended up being the ones having to move out because they couldn’t take it anymore.

Our managers are fairly new to the building and they started off kind of wishy-washy, so I was actually super impressed when the woman showed up at our door letting us know that Loudy McBangerson upstairs was getting the boot.

@CarolinaCola: Maybe your upstairs neighbor is a bee! 😉 Haha.
