Apartment Life!

The people who live above us are mysterious. They are always awake, for one thing. They have kids that seem to run in circles all night, and that usually ends in yelling, (Presumably because it interferes with the anvil juggling,and clog dancing that the adults  seem by the sound to be devoted to.)

Afternoons are evenly divided between ferocious vomiting and noisy sex. Also constant bathing. (With a routine like that, you would have to.) The children yell in the bath.

I wonder how we seem to the people below us?

are you sure that they are ABOVe you?

I lived in an apartment where I was convinced that the noise came from above. A neighbour who decided to vacuum at 1 am; who slammed doors at all hours; who clattered around in high heels (wooden or tiled floors are the norm in this part of France because of the heat) and ho had noisy friends. One day I decided enough was enough so I went upstairs and knocked on the door...and it was opened by a nice 'older' lady who had carpets! After talking with the caretaker we realised that the problem came from the apartment below me and to the right (and the other side of the elevator-shaft...which was why so much noise carried. to top it all, the student who lived there was a *****! and because people were complaining she deliberately caused more trouble. The condo committee could do nothing because she wasn't a tenant - her parents had bought the apartment for her while she was at college!

No, these people are for sure above us. I can hear other people across the airshaft, but they are less-- vigorous.

I do hope the ferocious vomiting and noisy sex aren't simultaneous?

I lived in tenement flats for years but I fear that most of the time, we were the noisy neighbours :}

You have my sympathies. Perhaps you could get your revenge by persuading C to learn to play the bombard? Partner assures me it is the noisiest instrument known to mankind. Even noisier than the Highland bagpipes!

Entire family will take up bombard instantly! Will let you know the results!

These are the same people who have the leak that has never really gone away, and is dissolving our bathroom ceiling. (Making the vomiting and bathing super easy to hear.)

Maybe we could have our Bombard lessons in the bathtub...

Oh yes! Please do! I'm sure the bathtub would amplify the bombard nicely :) And for good measure a set of bagpipes in the lounge perhaps? Wonder if there's any way to amplify the ships bells app...

just hope that the vibrations from the bombard noise don't make the celing collapse....oh yuk!

Oh, dear... You know, I thought my current neighbours (arguing every single morning at 5 AM) and my former neighbours (on one side a little boy with ADD who yelled and banged his head against the wall, all night every night, and on the other side two 70-somethings having REALLY loud sex) were pretty bad, but this sounds even worse. Vomiting and noisy sex? Wow. Poor children...
