My Neighbors Annoy Me

·183 words·1 min

My neighbors downstairs are fairly new to our complex, they only moved in a couple of weeks ago and they irritate the hell out of me.

First of all, they are a large family, which is fine, but the kids are loud and all over the place, which is not so cool. Don’t get me wrong, I like kids well enough, but I really prefer to live in quiet place.

Secondly, they play their music very loud, which is frustrating as my complex is pretty good at dampening sound, so if I can hear their music it must be blaring. I could even deal with it if it was music with variety, but as near as I can tell it is the same god damn song being played over and over and over again.

I have talked to them about it once and it did get a little better, but its still a bit of a problem. However, I think I’ve worked out the perfect volume for my music such that it drowns out their music without being detectable outside of my apartment.
