We live in a block with walls, what are sensitive to all the noise arround. And right now the freak from the appartment at the next floor thinks that this is idea; time to make repair of his bath...his bath is above the room i sleep. But the noise is everywhere. I am tired and need to sleep, but i CANT. I cant because of all this f*cking noise. And it`s 14.10 o`clock p.m...for God`s sake! Many people sleep after their lunch... Are there in your city lows and special sleeping hours when it`s forbidden to be noisy? Here it`s officially forbidden from 14 o`clock p.m till 16 o`clock p.m. And from 22.00 at the evening till 7 o`clock at the morning. But who cares...the freak is a freak!!! What are your usual reactions? Does the noise drives you nut when you sleep? Will you try to ask the freak to stop? Will you find another solvation? I AM REALLY VERY ANGRY!

I suppose different places hav different customs. in the UK, we don't have a siesta so noise is forbidden only during the night. Surely your 'freak' deserves to have a working bath? Maybe they're working all afternoon in order to get it finished so there is no noise tomorrow.

This is just one of the examples because of the concrete situation. But this is tradition here in my block: nobody cares. Some can make repair at the night just because they find that they are full with energy and want to make it right now! It`s ok if you are in the jungle and you trouble nobody. But when we live with other people, where are the limits?

I don't blame you for being angry. I hate that when people are inconsiderate. Hopefully when the bath is done he will not be making all that noise much longer. I live in the country and out here we don't have that many noises. That is one reason I choose to live out here. I have to drive a hour to work but it is worth it to me. But with gas going up I may end up having to move to the city and then I will have all those frustrations. Hopefully the noise will be over soon.

Hopefully once the bath is fixed, the noise will stop and you will get some much needed sleep. In the UK we don't have siesta so the day to day noise continues until evening. However, once the night falls we generally have a bit of peace and quiet. I hope you get some rest soon hun

Around our home, it's only forbidden to make noise in the middle of the night. Since I am guessing this isn't the only time you've had problems with this neighbor, can you talk to your landlord? Maybe they would say something to him about the noise without letting him know exactly who made the complaint (which can sometimes cause him to make more noise just to get back at you)? Is it anyone you can talk to about the noise? I usually get along with most of my neighbors so if there is a problem I can just go and tell them and they try to stop. I have had to call the police in some instances (one couple used to beat each other up on a weekly basis and she was pregnant) but really there isn't a lot you can do about it. :( It's not fair, but those are about the only options. :(

I feel your pain. We don't have siesta hours here, but we do have noise control laws that after such an hour in the evening it is time to quiet down. I truly hope your neighbor has stopped banging around, but yes, it would have been nice of him to say that he will be repairing his bathroom and that he apologizes in advance for the noise. That would have been nice, but most people don't think of that. Take care and I hope you get some sleep soon!

I would be furious! I live out in the country, You would think it would be so quiet and peacful but NO! I have crazy neighbors that allow their dogs to bark all night, on top of that they have 2 donkeys that hee haw all the time. They love to start making lots of noise at 3 oclock in the morning, they wake me and my son up and its very frusterating. I have called the county numerous times and they say if they come out them the animals have to be making noise at that time for them to do anything about it. Of course by the time they show up they are already finished with their wake up calls. So nothing has been done STILL! I hope all works out with you and your noise problem I am moving! But you could complain. Sucks to have to be the sqeaky wheel sometimes though.

I think you may want to express these feelings (kindly) to your neighbour. I know we have noise restrictions, but they genertally kick in after 10p.m. through to 7a.m. Unfortunately for many Canadians, we don't have the luxury of nap time after lunch, as many of us work during the day at our jobs or at school. As in any democracy, the majority rules, and though there are some who work nights and sleep during the day, they are the minority in this situation and they must deal with the choices they have made and abide by the same laws as everyone else. So either deal with your neighbour or if it is infringing on laws of your country/state/city, contact the office in charge of upholding the law andmake a complaint.

well, where I live, there is no siesta after lunch. Have you considered going upstairs and politely asking him to stop? NO ONE CAN READ MINDS! he doens't know your sleep schedule, and if you don't tell him, he will continue. Your first step is to go upstairs and CALMY TELL your neighbor of when you need to get sleep and if he can keep it down during those times. Your second step is to call the landlord if he doens't comply and have the landlord deal with it. Your third step is to call the police. GETTING ANGRY WON'T MAKE THE NOISE STOP! Being an adult and telling your neighbor that the noise bothers you will.

Your not supposed to be noisy here after 11p. Not many actually abide by this law. the cops usually have to be called. I know how you feel, i have had many noisy neighbors. I'm sure right about now you are irate. what a moron. i would go up there and tell him to knock it off. Good luck:)

Hello,magica,luckily I am living in a house and my neighbours are not close to me ,they never produce any noises. If you feel uncomfortable with the noises from your neighbour,the best way is to talk to them nicely and ask them to try to keep the noise level low no matter what they are doing. I do not affected by noises when I am sleeping,i can fall asleep easily and not be woken by any noises except those from crows.lol

Here where I live the time you can not make any loud noises is 10 P.M. You can call the law officials if a person makes extreme after that hour. Have you tried talking to the person. He/she may not realize you are tring to sleep. That is what I would do first. If he doesn't want to pay attention to you than it is out of your hands and call the officials.

I don't know why people are so inconsiderate. Maybe you should make a lot of noise when you know he is trying to sleep, he might get the hint. If not, I'd see if others were bothered by it and maybe as a group you could discuss it with him.
