If you live on the bottom floor of an apartment building...

Don't you HATE it when the upstairs neighbors run around? Eeep. So annoying. It sounds like they're wrestling up there.

  • AHHHH!!! our first apartment was awful for this reason. The lady above us had like 5 kids in a 2 bed room. They ran around ALL the time, and kept their music and tv so loud all the time. I cant tell you how many saturday mornings I got woken up at 7 am by blaring loud rap music.

  • After DH and I were married, I moved into his apartment. He had a lower unit in a 2 story building. Our neighbor above us was a single woman, but would always slam her doors and would be so loud when she was working out. It was really annoying. I did like not having to go up and down the stairs all the time though, that might have equalized the noise above :)

  • When we lived in apartments we always chose the second floot. So I am sure we were guilty of noise.
    Sometimes you just can't help it, and as we all know, kids are so heavy footed.

  • One time when I was visiting my grandma at her apartment, It was one of the complexes for seniors. Her apt. was ground floor and the woman above her had a very active sex life. I stayed for a weekend and I asked gram if this happens all the time and she said every night. Blew my mind but I think that is great for a woman in her 70's to still get it on. You couldn't help but hear the bed squeak. I laughed my butt off

  • I hate it when I can hear the music of the person below me. I do not let my children run around, but the floors squeak and my last neighbor was quick to beat on the ceiling if a floorboard so much as groaned.. She probably hates that she hears us having sex too. Oh well..She's gone and the new neighbor will be in for a surprise. Funny thing is, every time I see her, I ask if my kids have been bothering her or whatever.
