  1. About every day my upstair neighbours talk so loud that I can sometimes hear the words clearly.

    Some couple weeks ago they went away somewhere. They left early in the morning or it was still night time.. like 4am to 5am they just fucking jumped/stomped on the floor. What the fuck! At least after that it was quiet for a week.

    They really don't know how to be quiet. I hear some stupid moany mumble all the time, even now. Sometimes I can also hear their tv mumbling. One of them also used to sing (horribly) often, but eventually some other neighbour complained about the singing. Sometimes he still does it anyway.

    Last night they were away, probably in some bar, came back home around 3am, just when I was going sleeping. They make lots of noise in the stairwell. Then I thought they went sleeping, but around 4am I start hearing lots of yelling. The yelling continues for hours. I could hear it even when I had earplugs in my ears. I think they stopped yelling at 7am.

    Around 10am I start hearing some kind of loud sweeping cleaning noise. Couple hours later they start talking loudly again.

    They are the most ugly-stupid-retard-asshole people I know. I really hate them.

      The charms living in an apartment, I say.

      Only annoyance in my neighborhood (living in land, by the way)... Is those goddamn individuals with SUVs that drive 50mph and turns small water pools into annoying holes in dirt road. They could have all the size of road to avoid them, but nope, WE GOT SUV AND WE'RE IN GODDAMN HURRY.
      And then they keep complaining why the road maintenance bill is high. :)
      But I nitpick.

      Assuming you're bolder than I am, make a lot of noise during the daytime. Play music as loudly as possible, fire up an electric drill and other power tools. It's harmless retaliation. Clearly they're nocturnal, and they need a taste of their own medicine.

      Ah, but that gives me an idea. You know those percussion drills, and the lovely sound they make?
      Have new lights installed. In a day when they have hangover. ;)

      Yea, I thought they would have hangover today, but they woke up earlier than me. My plan was to play some violent videogames all day with loud volume...

      I listened to some Sepultura louder than I usually listen, and then Nancy Sinatra - These Boots Are Made For Walking.. hoping they heard the lyrics and get the idea that if they don't stop.. I'm gonna want to walk all over them.

      Don't know if it has had any effect on them. Maybe I need to do this more often.

      Yeah, I have neighbours who do things like this on occasion. It's incredibly inconsiderate and anti-social.

      UK law allows you to have a noise abatement notice served against your neighbours if they make noise that is antisocial. Ideally you should try to resolve the problems amicably by contacting your neighbours and asking them to be more reasonable. Otherwise what you do is contact your local council and complain; after multiple complaints they will send people to your house to witness the noise taking place and confirm that it's antisocial. They will then send a noise abatement notice to the neighbours; if they violate it then they can be fined or brought to court.

      I have successfully dealt with multiple problem neighbours in this way. I had one guy who was a complete sociopathic asshole who liked to listen to death metal at 4am. It took some time but eventually I got him fined and evicted.

      Unfortunately I only know about UK law, I don't know what the situation is like in other countries.

      I understand the desire for tit-for-tat "revenge" here, having been on the receiving end of this kind of antisocial behaviour myself. But really, this is the absolute worst advice you can possibly give. Reasons are that 1) it encourages escalation, where they want revenge as well, 2) it destroys any moral highground you have and gives them an excuse for their behaviour ("you make noise too!"), 3) it can be considered harassment, which could potentially end up causing you worse problems.

      The best way to go about these problems in my experience is to use discussion and the force of the law. Trying to get "revenge" is a childish response that neither accomplishes nor solves anything.
