So I’ve only been living on my own now for about 2 months today. Already I apparently have issues with my downstairs neighbor that I didn’t know were there.
This morning we received a letter from him stating that we were being incredibly loud walkers and there were over 20 different instances where we had kept him awake at night. The noise was so loud it is frightening his dog and he had to buy it a thunder jacket (what the fuck???). According to him, it sounds like we are stomping around at the hours of 12:00-12:30 and that’s keeping him awake. Also, he wanted to show us respect by speaking with us directly rather than contacting the apartment/security management.
My problems with all he had to say are this:
1. I didn’t even know we had a problem with noise. This is my first time hearing anything about this from him yet he says that there have been almost a month’s worth of instances? Why didn’t he fucking say something?
2. A thunder jacket….really? Your dog must be sensitive as fuck.
3. We are all 3 almost 200+ lbs, do you really expect us to be light, dainty walkers??? We can’t just tip toe around our place all the time so the slightest bump doesn’t wake you from across the complex.
4. The vast majority of the time we are sitting in our computer chairs on the other side from where he’d be sleeping. Unless he sleeps in his living room, how the fuck is he hearing us? Also, yeah 12:00-12:30 is right when I go to bed. Of course if you were awake you’d hear me walk to my room, I weigh over 200 fucking pounds.
I’m planning on at least apologizing for the noise and I’ll see if we can walk more quietly but this seems ridiculous to me. I’ll see if I can arrange for a time where I can stand in his place and listen to see if we are actually being loud or if he’s just a sensitive prick.
