She said no problem, and it's been kept to a minimum ever since, which is cool. Well last night it was pretty loud, but DS slept through it so I just watched tv and didn't go up and ask them to turn it down. Tonight, I put DS to bed around 8 and he was asleep by 815, their surround sound went on right around 830 and my ceiling was literally shaking. I was waiting for my husband to come home from work since he works second shift and was going to ask them after 10 to quiet down (noise ordinance is 10-6 so there isn't much I can say before then.) at 10, my DS woke up crying because he thought there was a thunderstorm outside and they scare him. I got him back down pretty quickly by turning the tv on in my room and putting him in there. My husband was running late so I went up and knocked on the door. Their fucking surround sound was so loud I had to knock 3 separate times, finally they heard me knocking but couldn't be bothered to come to the door. They turned the surround sound down a small amount, but I could still hear it in my apartment.
I mentioned it to my husband and he tells me I'm being 'dramatic' and 'emotional and hormonal because you're pregnant.' I then tell him I'm pissed and I'm going to say something to the landlord if it happens again, and he tells me I should go up again tomorrow and ASK them nicely to turn it down.
I'm so frustrated. They know their are small children downstairs and across the hall (a six year old and 6month old twins.) is it really necessary to be obnoxious on a weeknight? And then ignore your neighbor who's knocking on your door to politely ask you to turn the surround sound down. I have a surround sound system, it's technically my husband's and it's worth probably $10,000 it's so loud I haven't used it since we moved in here because I don't want to be rude, it is so tempting to wait until 730 Saturday morning, plug my phone into the surround and turn it all the way up. I know that's immature and ignorant and my the way to handle it and obviously I wouldn't actually do it, but I'm so frustrated and pissed about this. Am I being dramatic and hormonal, or am I right?
