Although you’re going to see many complaints about things relating to Facebook there will naturally be some that aren’t. Noisy neighbours is one of them.
I wonder what my downstairs neighbours thinks of me – my floors squeek as hell when I walk around my apartment and I have no idea if that sound is audible down there – and I usually don’t go to bed until between 01 and 03 so it’s not unthinkable that they’d find that annoying when they’re trying to sleep. Nothing I can do about it anyway. Besides, they can consider it payback for the noises they’re generating when they’re having bunnysex – they’re both insanely loud. Even the guy makes some goofy sounds.
No, even worse than them is my upstairs neighbour. He’s not right in the head and not at all considerate of his neighbours.
A while back there were someone living close by with a small baby…I’m not exactly sure where – it may have been above him as I could faintly hear the baby crying sometimes, but anyway – it bothered him a lot when the baby was crying and he was trying to sleep. So he would let the parents know of his annoyance by banging of the pipes for the heating with something metallic.
…in the middle of the night. Waking everyone else who shares the same pipes (5-10 households). But apparently that didn’t seem to bother him as long as he could bang on the pipes and feel better about it. Probably frustrating the parents more than anyone as babies doesn’t think “Oh, he’s banging on the pipes again. I’d better stop crying“.
I haven’t heard that baby for a while now…not that it’s gotten better though – the problem has just been replaced by an even worse one.
He seems to have developed a severe case of paranoia (scary as we’re the same age) and be basically thinks that he’s under surveillance by The Danish Security and Intelligence Service and the Freemason’s lodge 24/7 (he’s told me so – except he believes it’s really happening). “Apparently he wrote a critical article once” about….something, and now believes that those two organisations has teamed up to destroy his life by making sure he doesn’t get any sleep by beaming sounds into his apartment (okay – that’s my wording; he said “making sounds appear”) at all times of the day to keep him from sleeping. There are more details but they’re not really relevant.
What IS relevant is how he deals with it…
He stomps around his apartment and screams and shouts in the middle of the night – usually between 02 and 05 (which is REALLY FUCKING ANNOYING). He goes from room to room and shouts at the top of his lungs in all of them – sometimes in the stairwell too. He shouts and screams things like “leave me alone“, “I haven’t done anything“, “what a waste of resources“, “this has to stop“, “traitors” and other things like that. He also hits walls, doorframes, tables and whatever is near, so it’s A LOT of noise that affects everyone in the apartments near him. Again, in the middle of the night. Probably me the most, as I get all of his stomping around up there too. this usually goes on for at least an hour. He probably falls sleep in the end due to exhaustion.
Once, around 04 am , I’d had enough and banged 5-6 times against my ceiling with a broom while he was at it, which promptly resulted in him screaming “and you, you fucking asshole, you just shut up“.
The “funny” thing is that this has been going on for 1½ year now and not once has anyone else banged on the pipes to quiet him.
…I know he’s ill and should get some help – I’m sure he’ll be fine with the right medication, but I’m ready for a white van to come and drag that annoying moron off to a padded cell.
