He is an old, old man who smokes like a chimney and has cancer. I have felt very badly for him, even though he is a crotchety old bugger who won't even talk to anyone else. Last night we were watching TV and one of our cats started to play very noisily, running between the kitchen floor and the living room floor. Our neighbor slammed on his ceiling so loud it scared the heck out of me. I thought the house was falling down. We rent our place from the person who used to live here, and he owns his unit below ours. He bought the unit knowing he would always have neighbors above him who could have kids or animals that make noise. I can't decide if I feel sorry for him for being stuck in a building he hates ( he could have bought a trailer for less than he paid and lived his life in the solitude he obviously wants ) or just to dislike him for not even saying anything to us, but hating us because we live over him and have a baby that cries and cats that play.... Is he just an old grouch or are we supposed to whisper and tiptoe? Keep in mind that we are very quiet people, and whoever built this place didn't insulate it hardly at all and we can hear everything he does downstairs, too, but it doesn't bother us because we are here on a tempoary basis and are just very tolerant people.Answer Question
I'd let it go. Your there temporarily, and no matter how you approach the subject with him he'll get defensive. He sounds like my FIL, I can't image living in the same building as him.

I would not change my life to make him happy, he chose to live somewhere with upstairs neighbors and he's just being rude.
