We have not lived in an apartment in over a decade, and the last three years that we were in an apartment we were in a townhouse end unit so we only shared a wall with 1 other family - a single lady who was rarely home. So I don't know how to handle an issue. Our upstairs neighbors almost NEVER have anything nice to say to each other. For the last month they have had daily screaming matches lasting over an hour, and sometimes they have three or four a day. It is OLD. I don't CARE if she can't stand this or they better not do that. It is always her voice screaming and sometimes a kid hollering. They have 3 kids under 6. This is usually accompanied by the sound of things being thrown. The kids do not cry after a crash and there are no sounds like someone hitting them, or i would have called the cops and CPS. Is it still 'usual and customary' to just pound on the ceiling when the neighbors are too loud? Cause they don't respond at ALL to that. I did scream at them a few days ago because they had a screaming fit from 4 am to after 5 am, then at 6 am she started singing at the top of her lungs, By 8 I had a migraine from it and was losing my mind from the pain. I finally started screaming about how I would be so thrilled to scream all night when her kids are asleep if she will not SHUT UP RIGHT NOW, and that as I am a night owl it woudl THRILL me to do that to her. I just couldn't handle any more and NOTHING we have done, incl politely asking them to not scream before 7 am when our kids get rup to get ready for school, has made a differnce. Is this somethng the mgr should address if we talk to them? Or do we keep trying to deal with it ourselves? It is the only bad thing, but it is really becoming a problem. I don't think she has the ability to speak, just to scream at the top of her lungs in rage. I have actually never even SEEN her, not even when I took cookies up to wish them a Merry Christmas. he seems nice and is super quiet, and the day after I lost it he seemed really sheepish, but he isn't theo ne screaming. I dont' know what he does, but I hope he has ear plugs. I cannot tolerate them in my ears during migraine or I would have worn them. Any suggestions?
