I left my neighbor a nice note basically blaming the old building, saying I sleep with ear plugs and a sound machine but I still get woken up several times a night. Simply asked late at night/early in the am could you take your shoes off. Of course they didn't and in fact it seems like they made it worse. I was actually disappointed. I ran the marathon today, I dropped the note yesterday afternoon and even stated I had the marathon and need to be up early and need to have a good night sleep. I got woken up 4 times, the last time I never was able to fall back to sleep so was up 3 hours earlier then need be. Not what you want when you have a big day ahead of you. I'm now considering contacting the landlord and have them in force the carpet rule. I tried to be nice. I don't complain about the shoes during the day , just at night like midnight to say 7am. I didn't want to bring up the carpet rule to them I died to be nice. I would think a normal person would be like oh ok, tonight I won't wear shoes at home cause this person told me they had something important and need some sleep. Silly me.

I love when people just say move. Because sure you can guarentee your next apartment won't have any issue. Perhaps you get a situation worse then you have now. Also finances usually are why people don't move.

My point to my story was how people are just so wrapped up in themselves and don't consider other people.
I on the other hand have had conversations with my downstairs neighbor to let me know if anything I ever did bothered her, she said no your great. I wear slippers in the apt, don't use a tv, usually use head phones for music, etc. I even asked the best time to vacuum since it can be loud. These are just considerate things you should take into account.

We knocked on their door once early on after moving in because it was midnight and it sounded like they were moving furniture across the floor. Turned out the woman was cleaning! I'm guessing one of them is OCD because it sounds like furniture is being moved at all hours. We let them know my husband gets up for work at 5am, so if they could just keep it down after 11pm it would be good. Ah well. It hasn't been that bad, we may just have to get ear plugs.

No getting around this one. People are just inconsiderate sometimes.

It is a sin that you would even have to tell someone this. I mean, I absolutely agree with you. Any normal sane person with half a brains should realize that in an apartment building, it isn't nice, or fair to wear shoes and stomp around late night.

I'm a top floor tenant, and I am always conscious of this. I am fortunate an elderly Chinese lady lives under me, her daughter and husband were there when we all first moved in, (back in the stone age) so I know them well, they have since started a family and moved, hence mom living there.

But I am always aware of what time it is, I don't vacuum at 10pm, I don't stomp around. This is common sense.......People shouldn't even have top be told.


OK, so now it's got to be payback time...................

Ear plugs just don't work at all for me. I think its cause it's vibrations and sudden boom boom versus a tv or talking. Not to mention I toss and turn all night from side to side so they don't always stay in.

I wish someone like you lived above me.

I wish someone like you lived above me. I'd like to be the nice neighbor but I'm frustrated and lack of sleep can make one a *****. People in the building like me and I'm friendly with everyone but if I have to bring out the ***** side to him I will.
