Things In His House That Make Me Sad: His Upstairs Neighbors

I swear to God, your neighbors must be wearing brick shoes and they all have to be at work by 7am seven days a week. Seriously, I can hear every little squeak they make above us. It's torture! How do you sleep like this? There's an entire family above our heads squawking around like angry turkeys. It's like they're re-enacting scenes from Children of Men up there!

Why do they have so much to say this early in the morning? How many times do they have to traverse their apartment? I can hear every movement they make. And the worst part is that you're immune to it. You're deep in REM sleep as I'm trying to stuff a pillow over my face to drown out the sound from the traveling circus above our heads.

Wait! Are they blasting "O.P.P."?  *checks watch* It's 8:04am on a Saturday! WHO THE FUCK ARE THESE BRICK-SHOED, NAUGHTY BY NATURE-LOVING PEOPLE AND WHY DO YOU HAVE TO LIVE UNDER THEM?

I can't deal with your upstairs neighbors. And, that just makes me sad.

Well, you know... technically you can't fault his upstairs neighbors as something "in his house" ;)

I thought about that, but it is definitely something that I can't stand about his house. AND, technically, if his home use is an apartment inside of a house, well, I can bend the rules.

I'm pretty sure that there are 20 people living upstairs from me. Also, when it's really quiet at night as I'm falling asleep, I can hear them peeing.

Noisy neighbors or an annoying roommate - not sure which is worse.

I have neighbors below me that blast their music all the time. Who listens to music too loadly ALL THE TIME? Every night? Come on now. But in other ways they're great neighbors, so I take the good with the bad. I've definitely had worse.

I wish my upstairs neighbor would blast O.P.P. on the stereo. I need to buy that album.

Haha I AM the upstairs neighbor. Sorry, my dogs like to play with each other. That's why I move into the top floor of places.

more hate for morning people, get over it.

Whoa, Emma, I don't care if people get up early. However, I do care if they are rude about it. That's the issue here. Blasting music at 8am on a Saturday is rude and inconsiderate.

Are you disagreeing with me about that? Strange!

I once had a neighbor that decided to practice My Heart will go On every day for a week leading up to valentine's. On the recorder. For hours. Gag.

you sure bitch a lot, maybe he should start about about your bitching.

Clearly, you're drunk. However, I see your point. I'll write a nice post for the gents out there.
