Well, if you didn’t know Justine and I share an apartment Pittsburgh PA. We live in a quiet town mostly filled with old polish people. I would say we live pretty quiet lives. We don’t have parties-ever, we never have people over, we are pretty much always on our computers-or not home. Our neighbor is constantly complaining to our landlord that we are tooooo loud. We live in a multi-unit building so our wall is connected to our neighbors. The last time we had a noise complaint it was because we were playing beetles songs on an acoustic guitar, at 9 p.m. (the guitar wasn’t connected to an amp). Today we received a letter from our landlord. It makes me laugh so I wanted to share some of it with you.
“It seems that the noise has again become and issue with the peace and quiet of neighbors living next to you. This past weekend I was approached by ___________ who said the specific noises were again intruding on his sense of privacy. I asked ________ if he had contacted you-he said he had not.”
One might ask….”what noisessss are these???” Well let me tell you!!
•thumping up and down the stairs (this means us just walking up the stairs)
•loud laughing (sorry! didn’t mean to laugh too loud!)
•the use of a radio sometimes late at night (justine sleeps with music playing-i cant even hear it across the hall)
Just another reminder! “Being a good neighbor and acting with consideration to those around you is a requirement for those living in this building.”
He asks that we adjust our lifestyles so that these noises are not so intrusive to others.
We need to move somewhere that we are allowed to laugh and walk up our stairs at any time of day.
