Actually, my first apt. was like that.
I had an upstairs neighbor that walked around in heels and had a two year old running around at all hours.
It wasn't all that bad. I really wasn't all that sensitive to noise in my 20's.
Now, it would drive me batsh** crazy for sure. But back then, I was like oblivious.

For me, 1975 construction, concrete floors and ceilings...quiet as a tomb.

The demonstration by way of the video clip alone is worth multiple reps! Thanks, BP!

This and or sit in their apartments with television or radio blasting because otherwise they can't hear the thing.

But when a younger person has friends or whatever over even early as say 9PM or whatever they are banging on walls/floors/ceilings.......


Then you have the perpetual old biddies/fussy old men who complain about noise for sake of having something to complain about. They don't like children, babies, young people, dogs, cats, or anything else that disrupts their idea of what the building *used to* be like forty or more years ago when they moved into their RS or RC apartment.

Believe it or not an (elderly) guy in our building has a sister who sounds exactly like that obnoxious Red Riding Hood.


One day was going out with some friends and he was coming in with the sister, after a bit of brief conversation in lobby we all went our separate ways. Once clear of the building and surely out of potential earshot one of my friends busted out with "Hey Grandma! I got a little bunny rabbit for you ta *have*!"


We all fell out!
