Quoting ♥supermommy:" I hate that the only regular houses I can afford to rent are ugly and run down, so I decided to rent ... [snip!] ... sometimes and in the past I've had some pretty loud BUT BRIEF fights with BD.. They are just continuously blatantly loud!"
Sounds like the exact same situation with me, except my neighbor is above me. She's an EMT with the fire department so she works odd hours, but she'll come home at 4am with steel toe boots on and stomp around like it's nothing. She's constantly dropping something, or screaming at her girlfriend. It drives me nuts. Apparently she can't hear much of what I do, we have really high ceilings, but I can hear EVERYTHING. I got to the point where when she's being loud I slam the door, I don't care anymore.
I've asked her plenty of times to just be considerate, ya know? Like, if you're getting off work at 4am, try to be a little quiet. She'll go out clubbing on a wednesday and walk around in hooker heels for like 3 hours before she even leaves the house.
We have an outside main door, and in the hallway, there's an entrance to my apartment and hers, she'll run down her steps, come out her door, slam it, stand in the hallway talking (which basically sounds like she's in my living room), then slam the big door.
DH has a hilarious habit of when she comes down her steps he stands at our door and shakes his ass at it, makes stupid faces and gestures, or like humps the door, I don't know why it's so hilarious but, I crack up laughing every time.
I feel your pain.
