I'm afraid this is a bit of a boring one....
I'm only 26, i live in London....yet i feel like i've ssuddenly turned really conservative!....This bloke who lives above me stays up every night with his television turned up...keeping me awake.

Should i just get a life.... Or should i say something (He's quite hard looking as well...and i'm quite wet)

Trust me as a 'person from the internet': Knock on his door and punch his lights out (and kick his TV in while you're at it).

But seriously, why not knock on his door and pleasantly-but-firmly mention that his TV is too loud and to please turn it down? That's what I suggest.

Be petulant and create a short period on unbearably loud noise.

Write *This is a protest against FLAT 26B's constant loud noise and antisocial behavior* on an A3 sheet of paper and stick it on the inside of your window so it stays dry.

Switch everything you have which makes a noise on. Hi Fi, TV, vacuum cleaner, shower ETC.

Or just come straight out with it and ask him, mentioning that it really has been a problem and it's been the repeated inconvenience that has caused you to act.

1) Deliberately overload the main fuse for the entire building every time he makes a racket.

2) Spread rumours and dissent about it being your neighbour's fault amongst other denizens of your block.

3) Open a stall selling flaming torches and pitchforks

4) Move to The Bahamas with the proceeds.

That's definately the best plan of action.  My neighbours used to scream at each other at all hours, and I found they stopped when I joined in with their argument after listening at the wall to what they were saying.  If you know what he's watching shout out the words to the film as they happen so he knows you can hear his bastard television.  He might not have ralised you can hear it.  Or he may just be a cunt, in which case you've got no chance.

I had similar problems with the guy upstairs playing music loud at 9am on a saturday morning, every saturday and sunday morning in fact. He wasnt too weak looking either, but you have to stand your ground.
The first time I went up I really had to hammer on the door and got a bit irate with him, "mate, its really fucking loud" etc, and he grudgngly turned it down  and  I went back to bed.
Of course it happened the next weekend, and I went up and it was his quite timid grilfriend, who looks about fourteen - I said "is that your music?' "'s" "Would you mind turning it down please?" "OK". No problem.
The third time I went up I was more reasonable although obviously pissed off, I said something along the lines of (and I had to keep it simple, he was fairly monosyllabic) "Look mate, I don't want to have to come up here every weekend, and you don't want me banging on your door all the time. You want t o listen to your music, we all love music, its the weekend, but just like I don't play mine at all loud after 9pm-ish, you can't play yours this eraly on the weekends. I work really fucking hard and this is my only chance to catch up on sleep. You must know most people have alie-in in the morning."
"But its not that loud..." (It was fucking defeaning standing there by the front door).
"I'm sorry mate, but it is. And you've must see in your case its made worse by the new 'wooden' floor you've put down - the whole flat is a speaker now! All I'm asking is don't have it half this loud until 11 or 12 o'clock on the weekend mornings, thats all I'm asking..."
The body language and tone were firm but conciliatory....

Basically what I'm tring to say is be polite and explain the problem if necessary - although you shouldnt have to, some people can't grasp the concept of other people.
And when it continues to happen keep going back, eventually it should stop if only because he'll be sick of the sight of you.

Oh, don't get me started.

If you come straight out with it and ask about it, he might decide to start making some serious noise,
like the cunts I'm surrounded by at the moment .
One side keeps me up 'til 4-5am with his *hilarious* karaoke stylings while the other
wakes me up at 7am with his fucking home improvements.
Some people are unfortunately just bastards who think they've a right to do whatever the fuck they feel like,
and fuck anybody else.

I'm not the one to ask really.

Yeah....sorry about that!
Unfortunate post-timing, or what....
...and after I'd resisted the temptation to say I was sandwiched between a couple of cunts as well


Sorry mother

When I was at college I had this old man who lived next door and he used to watch porno movies every Sunday morning at about 8am, and it was so loud you could hear every moan and "ooh fuck me". It was clearly soft core lesbo stuff from HMV though. He was a right mean old bugger too, always telling kids to bigger off and stuff.

Are you sure it wasn't just one of his home helps complaining about all the tidying up, like mine do?

Unicorn, can you edit that to say 'Monday' so that this is funny? Thanks.

Does your home help also say "Mmm you like that wet pussy huh?"?

Actually, I don't want to know.

If we could only ever have one smiley back, I do wish it could be that grinning one.


Because I thought that was hilarious, not because - oh fuck it

Well people can see my problem in another thread right now.

Loud TV worth killing for? I chose yes, but it depends just HOW loud. I mean if we're talking home theatre, window shattering 5.1 THX sound, then yes. Cut out the neighbour and just take a chainsaw to the fuckers. And if he gives you grief, chainsaw him too.

We had a deaf neighbour for a while. Used to watch a lot of soaps. That was fun. It's only really heavy bass that does my head in and makes me want to become a spree killer. The TV, if it doesn't have any bass, doesn't bother me.

Sigh.

Only if you and your other rather transparent identity promise to let him kick the living shit out of you.
I was right about being sandwiched between cunts all along.

That is all.

Yes, why are you using two accounts "White Van Gogh" and "sore bottom mum"  Are you determined to be the first wanker on the new boards?  Too late, dekionplexis already beat you to it, so wind your neck in and stop being such a tool please.

Yes, Mess with his head. Knock on his door and say "If you don't turn your TV down, I'm going to kiss you."

I used to share a house with a friend of mine, but then he got a girlfriend and became really boring.  I was watching television one night about 10:30.  He had already gone to bed (told you he was boring) and he shouted downstairs for me to turn the volume down on the TV a little bit.  Do you know what I was watching?  Snooker!  Obviously the massive bomb-like explosion of ball hitting ball every couple of minutes was a constant scream in his poor ears, or maybe those famously excitable snooker commentators were keeping him awake with their non stop shouting.

He shouldn't have been in bed that early anyway, the big poof.

That's great!

My wanker neighbours were pounding on the wall tonight, hard enough to scare my two year old son. He was running around, and it wasn't even 9pm... My wife is sure, due to the sheer vibration from it, it was outside, but I don't think it was. It will no doubt happen again tomorrow.... I'm hoping they do it tomorrow as I'm going to kick their fucking asses. (Metaphorically sadly. If I did it literally the landlord, and the cunt neighbours, would get what they want, since assault means we get a 48 hour eviction notice which can't be appealed. So I have to keep my fists holstered.)
