The answer: Bagpipe music!

Specifically, bagpipe music blasted at 8 AM (the town's noise ordinance ran from 10 PM to 8 AM) on a morning after they'd been up partying til 3.

They never blasted the rap music again after that!

I found a good way to get back at mine for one weekend too lol. Like I mentioned before he was always on his balcony making noise... so I starting placing every bag of litter that I scooped out onto my balcony. Since it's winter there aren't any flies but it sure stunk for a day and none of them went out making noise on their balcony

I hate loud music & apartment living, one of the reasons we're moving this summer is because its too loud.

I would call the police but what the lovely people do is turn on thier car, leave it running with the music and then go back to thier apartment to enjoy it. Devin gives me this look like the world is going to end, the appartment is vibrating and he's already meowing so I let him into the restroom to hide while I make ear plugs for me out of cotton.

Of course this happens on thursday night when i'm studying or on saturday night right before I have to get up at 5am to go to work on sunday.

I would try some sort of 5am loud music retribution, but I'm serisouly afraid of what might happen.

They blast their headphones to the point that I would think they'd be deaf, and then they just stand in the middle of the mall and look around! People need to be more considerate.

*Raises hand straight up* GUILTY!!!

GOD! Does she HAVE to listen to music 24/7?!?! It's all day, every day. Does she not have a job? A life? Is she partially deaf, maybe? Because when I can hear lyrics through the wall, that's not just too loud, that's wildly inconsiderate.

I really have to wonder about people like my obnoxious neighbor. And the truth of the matter is that she's listening to really awful music (I won't say what, in case somewhere here is into that).

I'm home with a massive head cold today and all I want is a nap.

My obnoxious neighbor needs to be more like my neighbors with the kittens, who take me out for really elaborate dinners just for helping them introduce the new kitten to the resident kitten. The woman was so scared when they were posturing...I'm really glad that she cares so much! Yeah. Obnoxious music-blaster girl needs to be more like the kitten people.

By the way are you aware:

There is something called "quiet enjoyment"!!!

It is "the right to enjoy and use premises (particularly a residence) in peace and without interference. Quiet enjoyment is often a condition included in a lease." If the landlord interferes with quiet enjoyment, he/she may be sued for breach of contract. And in your case disturbance of quiet enjoyment by another can be a "nuisance" for which a lawsuit may be brought to halt the interference or obtain damages for it.

I suppose you could always run over there and just say "I know its the middle of the day but I'm sick as a dog and need to sleep- could you scale it back a bit". The sick card usually tends to work.
I'm sick today too...must be a Chicago thing.

Well, look at it outside! YUCK!

Boy can I identify with all of you.

In one apartment I was in I could swear that the people upstairs were sumo wrestlers. Since I moved from there I vowed to always live on the top floor. The place I live now has sound insulated walls but it's not peaceful at 6 AM when the 90 year old lady next door has her tv cranked up so loud I can hear every word. She watches some kind of evangelical preacher shows.

This is off topic but I found out that you can get a home loan with no income verification, no debt ratio consideration, and no down payment. You can get the seller to pay the closing costs. I hope this helps some of you escape the horrors of apartment life. I got my preapproval letter today. It's not as hard as it used to be.

Still grey over here in Bucktown with flurries. Blech.

I once had a neighbour like that - I placed my stereo speakers right against and facing the wall between our townhouses, put my opera recording on and cranked up the volume. I let that go for about 45 minutes.

I didn't have any problems after that.

I hope I never ever have to live in an apartment building because I am one of those that love to blast my music. And of course if I end up in an apartment building I'd be considerate enough to keep it at a low volume. I do that even now with the people I live with. If nobody is home I crank it up, if there are people home I keep it low. It's only respectful.
