It’s been happening since I moved in here July 1st, around 2 in the afternoon Beyonce, Usher and Kelly Clarkson start bouncing off my living room walls. My neighbor has her music and bass turned up, again. I hate conflicts and so far I have done nothing. Today, after appropriately dealing with a jaywalker I almost hit with my bike “it’s my right to walk anywhere I want” I was feeling ready to say something to her.
I marched myself right over to her door and knocked loudly, and then knocked again, and then knocked using the door knocker. She didn’t come to the door but turned her music down a smidge and then turned it right back up a minute later.
An hour and a half later and I can still here the music “you can pay my bills…” and feel like a useless chicken. Not wanting to leave a passive agressive note or call the landlords I’m really not sure what to do.
Here is my possible note so far;
“I tried knocking three times, I can hear your music in my apartment and it is uncomfortably loud. I would appreciate if you could turn it down, especially the bass. I work odd hours and am often home during the day.
I’m debating to leave that or kicking her door for a knock she can’t ignore, but of course still being polite with my choice of words. I’m about to knock one more time, wish me luck.
How do you deal with noisy neighbors?
