Yes, I have really loud neighbours and I don't like talking to any of them (in fact I ignore and avoid them whenever I can). They're not the kind of people I want to associate myself with (to say the very very least). Is there a way for me to indirectly tell them to shut up and keep it quiet?
The noise is so bad I can sometimes feel the vibration of whatever crap music they're listen to. They live below me... so I have retaliated in my own way which did make them stop (only for a while). Also, one of them sings in the middle of the night (midnight to 3AM) which I find incredibly frustrating because I have insomnia and it's really hard for me to fall asleep and especially harder when they're bloody sing.
Anyway, what's your advice on loud neighbours, frihost? I'm getting pretty fed up with this bs.
You need to let them know they are to loud. It is hard to know if your neighbours can hear you and if no one tells you it's easy to think that no one is disturbed. If you don't want to talk with them you can give them a note or something. You can just say it's from a neighbour and they will not know it's from you.
If nothing helps you can talk to your landlord if you have one. But don't talk to the landlord before you have tried to reason with the loud neighbours first. You don't want to put them in trouble for something that you could have sorted out yourself by just talking.
If you don't say anything straight up, they're just going to continue assuming that you don't care. (Attempting to 'retaliate' would only reinforce the assumption that loud noise isn't a problem for you.) If you do say something, they don't care, and the noise is loud enough then call the police.
Alternatively, invest in earplugs?
First, as others have said, let them know they are too loud. Second, pending where you live, there are noise curfews, so you could call the police.
The loudness might be habit from their childhood. They feel hard to control.
If they ignore your voice then are undisciplined and manner less people.
A couple people suggested to call the police. I'd advise against that. Only an ****** would get the police involved before you ever talk to them. Like someone mentioned earlier, they may not know they're being loud enough for you to hear them and so they may not know they're disturbing you. You have to let them know somehow and then if it continues you can go to the police. But to scare someone (nobody wants a visit from a police officer) when you haven't even warned them is just being an ass. You have to give them a chance and let them know there's an issue.
Thanks for the quick responses. I've had a talk with the neighbours and they've agreed to keep it down. There hasn't been much disruptions over this weekend which was awesome although if noise does become a problem again, I really don't want keep having talks with my neighbours so I'm not sure what will happen then.
