Neighbors thumping music is driving me crazy
Posted by: MarvinM ()

I live in a townhome in Burke and my neighbor's thumping music is frustrating me. This has been going on for at least four months now, since they moved in. They play music, which thumps through the walls, all day (usually starting at 1 or 2 p.m.) and all night (sometimes until 2 a.m. or even later). They all seem to be younger "party" type adults and this rave music is making me nuts. I suspect there is more going on over there than just loud music. I have even banged on the wall, super loud, a few times and they got the message and turned down the music. I don't know what to do. I know I can call the cops when it is after 11 p.m. (to date, I have not) but what about 6 p.m. or so? It's not illegal for them to be inconsiderate. I am really frustrated. Does anyone have any ideas on how to help me shut them up?

Complain to the cops. They'll come out give, if they hear it they'll give a warning. If they have to come out again same night it's a ticket, third time around is jail. I know I get complained on all the time.

Noise violations are 24/7. Set times only apply to construction etc

common wall living....
i feel your pain. but before you call the cops, nut or vag up and talk with them, tell them the bass is going right through the walls. but be respectful, indicate you dont mind the noise in controlled doses, even the random blow out, but a constant thumping especially in the middle of the night isnt cool. if theyre renters...good luck, as they might take a "so what" type of stance. if they are renters, and they blow you off, contact the hoa who will in turn contact the owner. some hoa's can get pretty nasty in those situations, to both the renters and the owner. if those dont work, then obviously the police can be brought on the scene. try the human civil approach first, see where that gets you.

you obviously understand that common wall living has it's inherent share of irratations when it comes to neighbors noise generation. youre going to get that, it's going to be annoying, and youre going to have to deal with it. excessive noise, like you describe, is not something to deal with for very long.

be happy you dont have a bitch neighbor who complains about your farts being too loud. when i lived in autumn woods apts, the faggoty neighbor once complained about my door closing too loud, at three in the afternoon?! i so wanted to push him down the long flight of steps leading up to our units.

I know it's scary and hard to think about but why don't you just have a friendly conversation with your neighbor? They probably have no idea how loud it is and are not at all interested in bothering you.

Call the cops anonymously and tell them that there are suspicious person(s) in the car and that you can see drugs and guns. Nothing gets those porkers out there faster than a call like that.

If my neighbor was playing Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, KISS, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden or Metallica, I wouldn't have a problem with it.

I had that problem once in my townhouse in Bowie - walked next door, told my neighbor my walls were shaking, he turned the sound down and never again turned it up to the wall-shaking level for the entire time I lived there.

He had a black belt in karate, about 6'3", don't know his weight but he didn't have any fat on him at all and LOOKED like a running back football player, had at least three brands on various parts of his body (omega character), and probably could have broken me (at 6'2" and not any fat on MY body at the time) into tiny little pieces with BOTH hands tied behind his back.

But he was reasonable, understood my dismay, and corrected the problem as a good neighbor would.

So...you know...why not mosey on over next door and mention, politely, that the music is too loud?

shoot through the walls where the music is the loudest

pro: they might take the hint and turn the music off

con: if they don't, the music will be louder on account of the holes...

Don't be a dick and call the cops, why don't you just knock on the door and politely ask them if they could turn the music down? If the refuse to answer the door and/or continue to play loud music then call the cops.

All the guys in the neighborhood like me, so I just ask them to go over to "have a few words" with those loud negroes. Although in our neighborhood, now we have wetbacks and some chink gang wannabee's.

Call the cops, say you smell what you think is marijuana coming from their townhouse. This will get them inside them home and maybe you will luck out. Also, perhaps they rent. If so, try contacting the landlord and complain every time they do it. They'll be out of there in no time. Be an adult about it. You don't owe them anything, so if you don't want to talk with them, you do not have to. Fuck em.

How would you like it if these rednecks were your neighbors. The daughter is a drug addicted theif. The son is a raging alcoholic and fights at the drop of the hat. I am scared for my young children to go out when they are out. And to make matters worse, we are not white. They cuss us out and threaten us. We cant afford to move...ugh. We try to ignore them but sometimes their racial slurs are to much.

I have been on both sides of this. When younger I would crank the music, older I had a neighbor who would do the same back.

The best way is to be friends with them and explain your situation. 9 times out of ten they will keep the music down out of respect. Get their phone number and call them when it gets to loud.

If it continues then contact the landlord or the police. After they get enough complaints they'll stop or move their parties elsewhere.

Oh and after a while of talking with my neighbor about the music I got to be good friends with them and the music didn't really both me anymore.

In fact I would just get a laugh out of thinking about it, "Yup they are partying it up again."

Whatever happened to the golden rule? Why can't people respect neighbors like we used to do? I live in a townbome community and peoople put loose trash out on these windy days and it ends up in everybody elses yad. One guy has even left a car battery in his parking space for several days now.

How have we become such a rude nation? Entitlement, probably. Rudness should not be an acceptable behavior and nobody should allow themselves to be disrespected by the rude assholes.

Start standing up to rude people and let them know they are douche bags. Maybe a few will get the hint.
