An irritating Neighbor
About 16 months ago, a couple moved into the apartment above me. The very next day there was a terribly nasty note shoved under my door about "vibrations and noise" that bothered them. I had never had a complaint from anyone else, although I do play my tv and have computer speakers at night. So I went up t talk to them and they told me how they go to bed at 10 at night and how much they need quiey..so I got some headphones.
It turned out that the neighbor next to them on their floor was the one really making the noise, and they called the cops on him. Eventually they had a big confrontation and he ended up being evicted because he was really in the wrong, drinking and being menacing.
Now this couple are supposed to be above reproach, they don't drink, don't party, they don't own a radio or television and they have always been pretty cool with me, if extremely territorial about pretty much everything since they moved in. I was loading a bed into someones truck who happened to be in her parking spot when she came home and she made them move out to the street. She could have waited for 5 minutes but no.
About 6 months ago I started hearing these strange annoying, vibrations, buzzing and humming, that I could not quite place. It goes on for about 2 hours and sounds like someone..well someone has a washing machine. It's loud and annoying but being between 3 other apartments I couldn't place the noise.
Turns out these paragons of neighborly consideration installed a washing machine right outside their bathroom and it is worse than any one's television or minor partying..its just a constant buzz buzz hum hum that makes the bedroom and bathroom intolerable to be in.
The manager has no idea. These are 1 bedroom apartments with no washer/driers meant to be in the apartments, we don't even have dishwashers. They are very quiet apartment in a 6 unit building,
The problem is really duo-fold. I am appalled that they went on a campaign...
