That Guy Over head

I've written about the noisy guy that lives in the apartment above us. I wrote this poem about him today while I was sitting in my swing and he was watering his plants overhead. That guy over head Is green as grass When he waters his plants My deck goes kersplash My pictures shiver And shake on the walls You'd think that guy Was having a ball The water splashes The ceilings roll That guy over head Is out of control I'm thinking of Bopping him right on the nose But I think again Now don't go berserk Hold on to your temper And don't be a jerk Give him some time To comply with the rules If he still doesn't get it It's his time to lose Actually he isn't making much noise after our talk the other day. I think he will be okay.

It has been horrible since he moved in. But he's so much better now.

You mean he sprinkles water in his plants so much so that it hits your walls and shake them ? By the way , it's a nice poem pertaining to that man.

No the water runs down from his deck to ours. He seems to have stopped that too. I'm hoping.

Maybe he's never lived in an apartment before.I wanted to give him the benefit of a doubt.

Oh I'm so glad he isn't making as much noise now! I used to write notes to noisy neighbors at the apartments because I wasn't always sure they would react nicely if I talked to them face to face.

I went to talk to the guy once and I saw he had problems, the next time he came to talk to me.

@RubyHawk It's good you can communicate with your neighbor like that . . . looks like he just needed to be told what's on your mind and he understood.

Nice poem. Did you talk to the guy? It's better to let them know if they are annoying and that there are rules to follow.

I did, I talked to him twice and I think he finally understands.

@RubyHawk This is a good thing, because it's horrible to have unpleasant neighbors.

@LadyDuck We've had very few bad neighbors, but this one takes the cake.

it was just about the guy overhead driving us crazy with his loud noises, and water falling down on our deck from his deck. I hope it's settled.

Well, it was a good thing to talk with him. If he kept going you should report it to the landlord.

We did that first, management wont do anything unless we call the police and get them out here twice. I didn't want to do that.

I think he finally got it. I only hear a few reasonable bumps now.

Apartment living was hard for me. I just hated that I could hear the neighbors.....most especially the ones living above us.

Right over our heads is the only noise we hear. We never hear a thing from any other neighbors.

Lovely poem - that water dripping on you wouldn't be a lot of fun. I'm glad that he isn't making so much noise now.

No, water dripping down on the deck wasn't fun. I still don't know what to think about the guy. He isn't a child.
