Hey mylotters I really get annoyed with my neighbor, They keep listening to the music out loud and feel like they are the only human who is living in this planet! Oh please, I need to sleep now but they seem having fun there. This is not the first time I get annoyed with my neighbor, I often knock their door and ask them politely to lower the music and they did that but the next day they keep doing the same thing and it is pretty tiring to keep knocking their door and asking to lower the music, have you ever got a neighbor like mine? And what did you do beside asking them to lower the music? Any suggestion?

You can complain this matter to the authorities, for disturbing the public order or does something that is not fun.

I can imagine how annoying it is. At least your neighbor can lower the music whenever you go to tell him to do so. But it is still annoying that your neighbor forgets it again next day. I love China

Hi dechinta, I know how it feels because I've been in the same situation before. I was renting a room near my office before and those people renting on the last door are like your neighbors. I do not know if they were thinking that we also like to hear their choice of music. Good for you that you have the courage to knock on their door to ask them to lower their music because I have never done that. I thought that I might get them angry and might have an enemy in the compound so I just let them do what they want. But because they work night shift and usually sleep in the morning, during weekdays, I would usually play music while doing the laundry and would turn the volume really high :D Then after a while, one of them went to me asking me if I could lower the volume because she still sleeping. That's the time I told her my concerns. Make them get the dose of their own medicine, they say LOL

I had been through such a bad experience like you before, it is indeed extremely frustrating having to live next door with some human being behave like 'monkey' and think like 'pig'. They just can't seem to understand that their loud music is bothering everyone living in the near vicinity. I don't even know what is the best solution to selfish neighbor who behave in such an obnoxious manner, who obviously doesn't have the well being of his neighbor at heart and doesn't give much consideration on grave consequences their action can cause other many sleepless nights. May be file a complaint with your landlord or police department is the only way you can do right now, if making such loud noise at night is a violation of your community by-law, since your repeated requests to lower their music had obviously fall on deaf ears. As a last resort, you may have to be prepared for your neighbor violent respond to your complaint in the case you decide to having police involve in taking care of your lousy neighbor's problem, never assume your neighbor is not going to retaliate against you with violent or force after being reprimanded by police/landlord; living next door to people with selfish personality is a real pain in the as*. These type of neighbors seem to be everywhere in our neighborhood nowadays and displaying rising hearing impairs symptom every day. Sigh!!

I called the police and they came over and she got a fine because they thought the music was coming from my home. It was down stairs me and she ran up stairs with anger talking about why did I have to call on her. I could not hear myself think it was that loud and booming on my walls and floor.

Ugh. I've had. And still sometimes, other neighbors have huge parties with blasting music. We can't do much about it. We've even called the police, as there is a crime in my country called offence or violation of silence (like listening to music loudly after 22pm, so the time when normal people sleep :D), but the police doesn't do anything, just tells them to stop, but they do not do anything, like sanctions or puishment, only if something really serious like fights happen. At least your neighbors turn the music down is you ask. I've learnt to live with this, because they were quite a violent and "i'm the king of the world" tyoe of family.

Hello to you. A similar situation also happened to me before. The people who were listening to very loud music weren't only my neighbors but they were my board mates. We lived in the same house but they were in another room next to ours. Before, I was also really annoyed because it was only 4:30 am that time and they started playing really loud music. They really used some speakers while listening to some songs they liked to hear. I think that wasn't good because my sister and I went home late from work that time and we slept late too. We wanted to have enough sleep so we were still sleeping that time. It was still so early and I couldn't understand why they did that. They were even chuckling and giggling in their rooms. Their voices were even so loud while talking. I didn't like what was happening that time so I really came out of our room and talked to one of them. I asked him to tone down the volume of their music. I also told him that we were still sleeping so they should not be too noisy. They should have considered the people who still wanted to sleep that time. After that, I wasn't able to talk to that board mate of mine for some days. Maybe he felt a bit bad because of what I said. What can I do? I couldn't sleep anymore that time. I also told what I wanted to say politely so they would be reminded that other people were still sleeping at that moment. It was really too early. After that incident, every morning, they already used some headphones in their music players instead of using speakers. I think that was better than disturbing other people who were still sleeping because of the loud sound coming from their room. I'm happy now because I already moved to another boarding house. That board mate of mine and I are also in good terms again right now. That happened in the past so we should forget about it. We should also learn from that experience of ours. :)

This is a common annoying habit and the selfishness of some people is just too much.You are actually a good person to go and knock on their door.Some time back I had an upstairs neighbor who would put very high volume that it could vibrate my door and windows and when I had enough I knocked on their door and requested them to keep it down and even today I still remember their response. They got so angry him and his wife and they told me that they would do no such thing, they shouted at me telling me that I had no right to be outside their door and put the volume higher. I went back to my house and put out my lights and went to sleep and they had the audacity to come talk about me outside my door, don't worry about those neighbors of yours as what they put out to the world will go back to them and bite them.Don't bother knocking on their door again as they are already aware that they disturb you and may actually be doing it to provoke you when they are frustrated. I came home from work two days after the confrontation and they had moved out. Let the universe deal with them,they will get what they deserve and much more.
