    Anyone have some life experiences or ideas on the best ways to annoy the living **** out of your neighbors that live in the apartment below you?

    Note: The ideas have to be louder than the surround sound the inconsiderate white trash stoner college kids are blaring all day and night with video games and rap trash thug music.

    Secondary Note: Management and the police have no interest in doing anything about it.

    Third Note: I only have two months left on my lease.

    Turn your stereo on (loud) at 6 am because you know they will be sleeping...then go to work.

    Call your landlord, threaten to sue him/her for neglecting to provide a habitable abode but collecting rent anyway. This will usually get a reaction, sometimes they'll laugh but sometimes they'll decide the constant complaints aren't worth the rent you're paying.

    Wait till the last two weeks on your lease and wake them up hourly at 5, 6 and 7 am every morning.

    I never lived in an apartment, but I do live on a lake where a lot of people have vacation houses. I once had a problem with them partying all night, but the next morning at 4 AM I had to cut some trees. :whistling:


    PS Do you have any trees??

    What, exactly is going to be the tangible damages the OP is going to be able to prove in court?

    The OP would have a better chance of suing the landlord/management company for breach of contract based upon the uninhabitability of the apartment after repeated complaints (which, of course have been extensively documented, I'm sure) and police reports (also documented).

    Whenever you turn on the radio loud at 6 in the morning, turn your speakers down towards the floor so that they can get the full affect. :)

    If your stove exhaust vents are connected as mine was when I was a communal dweller, I have only one word...

    Well if he lives in apartments, he probably isn't allowed to cut the trees, but that dosen't mean he can't run the chain saw at 4 a.m.

    I had a similar problem when I lived in college. In the apartment above me, the tenants would make the loudest noise upstairs that sounded like they were wrestling. This would occur at all times of day and night.

    The ceiling of my bedroom had multiple holes in it from me raging with a baseball bat. Good thing my roomates and I were handy with some spackle.

    We repayed them one fine evening with and all night party during finals week after we were all done. They weren't happy, but we sure had a s**t eating grin.

    I have a plethera of effective ideas, some of which may or may not be entirely legal. However, try to get creative there are so many legal things that will drive someone nuts. First make many complaints to the landlord and police to establish that they have done nothing about it, especially your landlord. Then figure out when they sleep and rent the biggest diesel generator you can find and run it while they're sleeping, plug your cell phone charger into it for comedic effect, or a very loud stereo. Also if there is anyway you could accidentally blow the circuit to the house before leaving for work....people panic without power. If necessary, worse than nice clean fresh bath water, toilets break so do pipes, how does taco bell sound for dinner? I have had these kind of neighbors, the gutters draining into their windows was strange, you should never leave windows open, it is unsafe.

    Proceed with caution: whatever you do, they might be able to do better. If you've only got two months left, buy some earplugs.

    Escalation is rarely a good idea when you live in close proximity...
