I live in a Maisonette. The neighbours downstairs are way too loud. They talk too loud, they always slam the doors......their back kitchen door is stiff....so they slam it....the silly cow downstairs has just slammed it shut no less than 5 times in less than a minute. She shouts and swears at the kids and calls them all manner of childish names and insults. They guy is ok...her boyfriend.....she is not well educated to say the least. They shout when they talk, they argue all the time....as said above...the kitchen door slams, they have the TV up too loud, they slam the front door and inner doors too. She reminds me of Vicky Pollard. After 4 years of living above her they are getting right on my nerves. I have politely approached them every time. Asked them not to have the TV too loud, door slam etc. They are ok about it normally......then after 2 days it's back to normal. My father has confronted her and got a mouthful back. My maisonette is in a block of 4. I'm top left looking at it from the front of the block. My first noisy neighbouris her downstairs. My 2nd noisy neighbours are next door upstairs....or to my left. This bloke, his GF/wife...whatever she is and their 3 kids. This bloke as an absolute **** and make no mistake. He lets his kids stomp around the lfat without control. He doesn't work. He's openely admitted that he can't control his kids. He argues with his partner. he lets his kids watch their TV until 10 or 11 o'clock at night...and it is loud... We once had a contractor round installing sound proof flooring as we complained so much about poor sound proofing to the council. So after the 3rd day the living room was being worked on and my Dad was helping the contractor out. 14.00 in the afternoon the workman was working away banging and drilling and the **** next door comes around and threatens my Dad to stop making noise called him every name under the sun. Said that he was sleeping and so were his kids...and that his kids had bad stomachs...yeah...like we were supposed to know that.... My dad is a tiny bloke...and this guy is an ex-bailiff. Dad was scared. He had no right to have a go at my Dad....he even knew we were carrying out the flooring work as the council inforemd all the neighbours. This **** from next door called out the contractor as he wanted a word with him.......but the contractor refused to leave the house to go outside...dont blame him. he started accusing my father of being a bad neighbour and saying we'd called the police and grassed on neighbours.....erm...no we have never done that....but he's one of these blokes who likes to shout and get his point across and won't let you speak.......tries to create barriers and start riffs bewteen neighbours. The council have been approached. They can't do anything. The **** next door is in temporary accomodation. her downstairs is not planning to move for another 4 years.... I reckon this is why I'm not sleeping at night. How many times can you ask people to be quiet and respectful of neighbours......we all know it's bad sound proofing....yet our neighbours don't adhere to any reasoning. Sorry to winge...I got a load off my chest..
