Real complaint is Real.

My neighbour, or more accurately, neighbours, are fast becoming the bane of my existence. Here's the skinny - I live in a four unit home, and I work nights at a Walmart, which should be explanation enough for those who have shopped/worked/been around a Walmart ever, but I digress. I arrive home in the wee hours of the morn quite tired and looking to get maybe an inkling of sleep before I need to go and do it all over again. But it seems as though my bedclothes hardly have a chance to flutter down over me before my neighbours start tuning up their bullshit.

Neighbour numero uno, is an older gentlemen with not much left to do in life who is awake very early in the morning, and keeps a Pomeranian. Now, I have nothing against older gentlemen, or Pomeranians for that matter, but this particular set together is like whiskey and milk. For whatever reasons, he feels the need to have the dog outdoors for extended periods of time, around the general area of my bedroom window, and this hound will bark INCESSANTLY for hours on end. I am not shitting, hours of the most grating, irritating barks I've heard in all my born fucking days. I don't know if he forgets about the thing, or what, but this guy is certainly well on his way to suffering an unfortunate and unforeseen accident at this rate, if you get me. But it gets better.

Insert neighbour numero dos, an older woman of seemingly frail and lithe build, who didn't seem to be much of a threat when she moved in, but don't let that fool you. Between the hours of 6-9am, she will engage in activities that I can describe in no other way but furniture moving. It sounds as though she's dragging her refrigerator and dining set about the lower floors, with sharp clunks and bangs being the normal board of fare. So. I don't know what the deal is with that either, but since she just moved in recently, I've rather given her the benefit of the doubt, but after a week of this, my patience is wearing thin, and so is my sleep. I mean, how many times a day does one really need to move their fucking kitchen table? Or duvet? Or insert some other ridiculously loud-to-move large piece of home furnishing.

It's now to the point where I'm going to have a bitch of a time not shouting obscenities at elderly people and coming off as a cold, callous twat, but I will if need be. Oh, and I've spoken with both of them about said noises, and the fact that I work nights, and if anything, I think it may have gotten worse. I may as well have just kept my fucking mouth shut. :iconfuuuplz:

1. Go onto Youtube and find the video of the goats screaming.

2. Play video at full volume.

3. Set to play on a loop while you are at work.

Always the possibility they're both light sleepers and you're waking them up ungodly early when you get home, so they're exacting their revenge.

Maybe spray the area all around outside your window with some of that citrus dog repellant stuff... Spray the lady upstairs with it too and see what happens :dummy:

Course, it might just make the dog go nuts and bark more.

I thought of that possibility, really, but it's like a tomb in here when I'm home as it is. I don't crash around, extra quiet on the stairs, and I use headphones whenever watching film or listening to music. So I can't really feature that one.

Yah, right. Though I can't see how the damn thing could bark any more than it already does, since it will already bark itself hoarse. That's when I finally get reprieve. ;_;

That's what my father suggested. XD He actually offered to lend me some high-powered audio equipment and some rather offensive albums to play on it. It was tempting.

Get some noise cancelling headphones. Softly play some music you like and not hear any of that in the process.

Oh, I tried that. The problem is that they're big and ungainly, and I can't go the earbud route because of how my ear canals are shaped. They just don't stay in. Otherwise, this would be my saving grace. :/

Old people are the worse people to live around.. I've got less noise now that I live in a shopping centre with a bunch of teenage druggies as neighbours.
Old people are deaf and turn their music and tv up to maximum volume. They forget to turn off the stove and the water. They stop by your house to talk to you about stupid shit in the early morning..

You're telling me. So far this old guy with the dog has happened by my door seven times so far today. I've counted, I know. At least the furniture lady is out somewhere else today, though. Perhaps she's had a terrible wreck. :plotting:

What did yours stop by to tell you? My neighbors mainly stopped by to talk about our lord Jesus Christ and about how horrible it was that there were so many black and Arabic people in the neighborhood.

It's probably that I do.. Because I'm amazing. And humour is subjective anyway, you dumb bitch.

Ouch, that sucks! I've been there. :(

My recommendations:
- Talk to the landlord about the noise. He/she can set some rules while keeping the source of the complains anonymous.
- If your landlord is slack, invest in some reusable earplugs. They won't completely block out the noise, but it'll help take off the edge.

:iconzoo-relived:
zoo-relived Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2013
Yeah, the landlord being phoned is the next step, so I'm hoping I needn't have to go the earplug route. Having things in my ears drives me up the wall, but I'll certainly do what I have to.. Maddeningly enough, I find that my cat can conveniently sleep through any of this, at any time of day. It's probably because she's elderly as well. :crying:

Perhaps you could get sleepy time happy pills to put in your mouth and drift off to lala land forever and a day until the time to awaken is at hand once more?

I got sleepy time happy pills once to do that. Expect my drifting off to lala land was like falling down a dark hole of endless nightmare, and all I dreamed about was people getting their skin ripped off their bones and blood and organs everywhere, people painting walls with intestines and nailing hollowed out chests to the window as decoration.

But I would wake up really carefree all day. Expect every once and a while I would snap for no reason, and I almost punched a kid who was simply asking me for another carton of milk.

Wow. So like, was there nothing in list of possible side effects mentioning anything of dreams of evisceration, or intestines, or any of that lot? You'd think that would feature fairly fucking highly on it.

No, he didn't say anything about any negative side effects when he gave them to me.
But then again he really didn't give a fuck.
He seriously sat there and said, I'll prescribe you whatever, I don't care. I recommend these but, you want something else I write that on my doctor pad.

Now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure he was drunk.

:iconzoo-relived:
zoo-relived Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2013
That's some stellar health care, right there. Well, at least he was honest about his not caring. Though it seems awfully counterproductive for a doctor that doesn't care, to be employed in a service that provides.. you know, care.

suddenly he reminds me of the last doctor i saw. it was for just a refill on my prescriptions, and suddenly he's deciding that my asthma isn't as bad as "i'm making it out to be". little does he know that it really is that bad, and he's also deciding that i need more shit than i want. i pretty much told him that if he wants me to come in and get all this blood work done, give me 3 different shots, and some other shit i don't need, HE gets to pay for it.

Yeah, never bothered to refill them. I made a friend who used to have a lot of anxiety and depression issues, and was clearly bipolar. Used to take meds for it too, but wasn't anymore. But she handled it beautifully. She had her moments and her days, but for the most part, she just dealt with it in a way that I could only find amazing.
