Do you live in my neighborhood?
We've got 20-somethings up the street who four-wheel around with booze in their hand, and our neighbor has a loud bike he takes out every Sunday.
My old aparment was hell the last year I was there. Some weird unemployed folks with a developmentally challenged 18-19 yr old son moved in my four-block (I was 2nd story, their door was at the bottom of the stairs). They had a glass door where the boy stood watching everything that went on... and then stood out in the parking lot loudly gossiping about it. When he effectively told the entire complex that my roomie brought a computer in our apt, I had to complain to the landlord... at that point it was a security issue.
The man who lived beneath me was nearly deaf and had his TV on really loud all the time... but when I got a new TV and left it on at a decent level to entertain the birds while I was at work, he called and complained to the landlord. After that, a bunch of kids who played music LOUDLY at all hours also moved in next door to me... I got a "Final Notice" in the mail one Monday about noise "I" had been making over the weekend- when I was out of town! He refused to believe it was the new tenants. I emailed him and told him that and he said "it must've been your house-sitter"... my house sitter came by for 15 minutes, and was his 8-month pregnant cousin! I lived quietly there for three years and I guess I'm a bad seed who decided to suddenly become an obnoxious neighbor the last 2 months I lived there. Two weeks later someone finally called the cops on the new people, who invited them into their apartment where they were actively listening to loud music and smoking pot at the time. They were evicted and my friend's dad insisted the landlord (his nephew) apologize to me... he didn't.
But he did tell my friend to thank me for leaving the apartment so clean.
