Inconsiderate and completely disrespectful!

punksThat is what my neighbors are. You see, we rent a house right now. Attached to the main house is a “mother in law” apartment. Separate entrances and until last night it has worked out OK. As you all probably know I have an 8 year old who needs to get to sleep no later than 9pm…at the latest!! Now I have no problem with these little punks (that’s what they are NOW) playing music but not at 10 o’clock on a Thursday night! Bailey couldn’t sleep because of the bass coming through the ceiling, so Jason and my brother went down there to talk to them. Okay, now we’ve had the whole “if we’re too loud let us now” conversation with them. It goes both ways, so down they went. And this is how the conversation went…

Jason, “Can you turn the stereo down, I have a boy that needs to get up for school tomorrow morning?”Punk says, “yea no problem.”

Jason says, “is IT going to be a problem?”

Punk, “no not at all.”  Punk slams door in Jason’s face.

Jason and Josh walk away.

I, the spy that I am, have my ear to their wall. Guess what I hear after Punk slams the door??? “I’ll turn up the music even louder, mother f***er!” Then I hear another voice say,”I almost beat their a$$’s”  Which is just laughable!

Needless to say we had to end up calling the landlord, and I believe they ended up calling the punks because the music did quiet down. Our landlord told us to call the police but we thought that should be a last resort.  So this morning my mom says they woke her up at 1:30am arguing. Not cool one bit! Not only was the loud music uncalled for and the attitude incredibly unnecessary but now they are arguing at all hours of the night! We are a family up here and they know that and should respect that! We are not loud during the week, we aren’t even load during the weekend! Well…okay maybe when we play Rock-Band, but they should feel privileged to hear me sing!!  I usually charge for that!

When I woke up this morning and heard that they had woke my mom up I started stomping so loud upstairs!!! I knew that punk was still sleeping but he wasn’t for long because he left soon after that!  I just couldn’t believe the nerve of these people and the complete disrespect they had. They lost their “good standing” status with us and they should watch what they do because with one word from me to Big Ed…they’re out on their butts! I’m not sure they understand the leverage I have over whether they live there or not. Jason talked to Ed (landlord) again this morning and apparently the “punk” called Ed this morning and admitted they were all drinking and apologized. In my opinion it’d be in his best interest to come apologize to us! Him apologizing to Ed does nothing for me. Oh and if you lose all respect and regard for others when you drink maybe you shouldn’t drink!

What’s wrong with people? Does anyone have respect for other people anymore?!?!

    This is why I love living in a stand-alone house. I can make noise without bothering anyone, and vice versa (for the most part).

    I have to say that I’ve been the noisy neighbor a couple of times. Not intentionally! Once my 10-year-old sister was visiting and she’s never lived in an apartment. She was laughing and when she laughs she bangs her feet. Oops. Our fault! At least nobody was nasty about it on either side.

    Then one time I couldn’t get into my apartment building because there was something wrong with the lock. It was about 2am in an unsavory neighborhood, so I needed to get inside quick. I buzzed the custodian’s apartment twice with no result, and finally I buzzed his wife’s apartment, and that’s where he was. Well, I got chewed out because the buzzer woke up their baby who was sick, and he cried all night and bla bla bla. Well, I’m sorry, but what was I supposed to do? Sleep in the doorway? It’s not my fault he was slow about fixing the lock (it wasn’t a new problem). I didn’t say anything, but I was tempted to.

    The worst that happened to me was when the neighbors used to have knock-down drag-out fights. I never complained to them, though. I never could tell who was attacking whom. One day the guy buzzed my apartment because the gal had chased him out in his underwear. What do you say about that?

    I think “common” courtesy is getting harder and harder to come by. I would like to give everyone the benefit of the doubt that they are not “intentionally” aggravating each other, and with a gentle nudge, they will adjust to others’ comfort level within reason. I’m not sure why some people take it as an affront when they are informed that they are causing problems for someone else. Just fix it.

      I’m sorry you had to put up with that. It seems like people are just getting ruder and ruder with every day that passes. My boss for instance will wait 30 minutes before signing me out. 30 minutes past time for me to leave. I don’t say anything because I’m -not- rude, but I sure dislike the respect.

    No it doesn’t seem like anyone has respect anymore. We now live in a NARCISSISTIC SOCIETY. All people now a days think about is me,myself, and I. If I where you guys I would keep complaining to the landlord until they get kicked out. Maybe they’ll learn some manners and respect that way.

    Ugh. Hate loud neighbors. We’ve had a few of them over the years, and I’m sorry to say we WERE them as young, clueless 21 year olds. (I think God paid us back with the loud neighbors we had.) Although we were never nasty to anyone. If they asked us to turn down the music, we did without making a fuss. Kids will be kids, but they can at least show some respect when they’re called on it. Hope the landlord rattles their chain.

    I feel for you.I use to live in a side-by-side house with my boys.One side was so bad,always fighting.So i had to move the boys outa that room,cause it would keep them up.Icould block them out.I hated living that way,more cause of the kids.Some people are just very inconsiderate.They have always been.But now a days it seems worse.The attitudes are worse too.

  5. Just a Mom says:

    Bad neighbors stink! We live in a nice, fairly new sub-division and we had the neighbors from H-E-Double Hockey Sticks living next to us for 3 years. The kids were constantly picking on my girls and they had parties every night! I know for a fact they were selling drugs and doing other illegal stuff there. We would call the cops at least 3 times a week. Thank goodness they had their house repossed.
    Now we are blessed with the best neighbors in the world!

  6. kweenmama says:

    Maybe things will quiet down now that the landlord has said something to them. As far as their rudeness afterwards…THAT would be hard for me to deal with. Good luck with it all!

  7. tessa says:

    I agree with Shane! Also, call the cops! That will get them kicked out.

  8. tessa says:

    It does remind me of blaring the music at 2am with Darryl and Shane, good times 🙂 Miss you guys!! We were not as loud so the neighbors were bothered! They got nice thick walls I guess!! lol

  9. Joy says:

    I have never really had any “personal” problems with my neighbors. No fights over noise or really even conflicts with kids. I mean, I know my kids NEVER did anything wrong….RIGHT?!?!?

    But I’ve had a lot of problems with neighbors pets! The worst were two little white “scottie” dogs that barked 20 hours a day. The people had the invisible fence, which didn’t work and they would go to work and leave those dogs outside and they barked constantly and ran around the neighborhood all day long. I hated those dogs and so did everyone else. The police were called, the people were told but they didn’t do one thing about it. They were idiots! Other than poison them, which I could never do, we all just had to live with it. That was really one thing I never missed when we moved to the country. Now that I live like I do on 80 acres, I would have a really hard time living anywhere else.

    There is nothing I hate more than an irresponsible pet owner.

    I certainly don’t miss apartment life. I rented apartments and town houses for about 10 years before buying our house and I don’t miss it a bit. We always found our fair share of inconsiderate neighbors.

    I think being considerate and inconsiderate is somewhat due to the age factor. I think that as people grow older, they at least become a little more consierate. We surely live in a me me me society, but most 40 year olds are more considerate that most 20 year olds it seems.

    Good luck with your neighbors Nikki! 😀

  11. allison says:

    Holy crapola. I would have had a field day with those assholes! I think you did pretty well keeping your cook and all. But seriously, next time it happens, I WOULD call the police. Although that may just open the door for an all out war. Done that!

  12. nikki says:

    LOL…ummmm the cops. See we have quite a story there too!! They just raided this apartment and they are literally on their last leg…I’m hoping to completely knock them over! All they found was “pot” stuff but I know they are dealing and I’m sure doing more than just pot and I won’t have that around here. I’m all for giving second chances but I’m pretty sure they don’t qualify for one!! I am quite the little spy and my land lord knows this (and likes this) so if I see or hear anything I’m just calling the police. They are young, but so am I and I’m respectful….until you disrespect me of course! 😉

  13. Sue says:

    Yeah, once is one thing, but don’t be nice the next time. Shane is right; most people don’t give a damn about anyone else. I bet the landlord is hoping you call the po-po so that he’s done with them too.

  14. mssc54 says:

    Apologising to the landlord was a smart move.

    I suggest you begin making WRITTEN notes to include time/date/who/what.

    You will eventually need that.

  15. SKL says:

    If I had neighbors with drugs around my kid, I’d be a VERY lousy neighbor until those drugs were gone . . . .

    • nikki says:

      I am a VERY lousy neighbors NOW!! I only have so much say in what happens, but I do have some say seeing as I have children in this house. MY kid is nowhere near them and he is not allowed to talk to them nor is he allowed down by their entrance.

  16. javajunkee says:

    most people don’t have respect anymore that’s why the world is the way it is. I lived for an apartment for just over a year and that was long enough. Somebody was going to get seriously hurt and I could guaranteedamntee you it was NOT going to be me!
