I just need a suggestion, I have a neighbor that plays her music too loud. Christmas day the bass from her stereo knocked a picture off my wall. I hammer the picture back on the wall. You know what this heffier did? She called the apartment manager on me.
Now prior to this incident I have tried to ask her to turn it down but she just does not answer the door. I once called the police and again she did not answer the door. The she told my son she was going to dot my eye if the cops were called again.
Now I live in a predominantly black neighborhood and I am not black. I have however lived here 16 years. I never have had a problem like this! I have had my windshield smashed in, window broken and egged but never anything as annoying as this.
I know if I call the Police my tires probably will be slashed or worse. Management refuses to do anything about it what now what can I do. It is now April and I don't know what to do.
I would think your best bet is to play similar music. If she is playing hip-hop then break out some serious gangsta rap. How about Dr. Dre's 1992 classic 'The Chronic' which should be in the collection of every white person in America? Buy yourself a Raiders cap and some baggy khakhi pants (make sure they have a cuff and a crease).
But seriously... I once had a neighbour who was always complaining about my music. I tried to be slightly respectful, keeping the volume down after 11pm and I never really cranked the stereo unless they were at work.
One day I was listening to the new Eminem album at top volume. It was during the day, I knew he was at work because his car wasn't in the parking lot out front of the building. Turned out his girlfriend (or the ho' from the night before at least) was still in his apartment. She knocked on the door and complained about the music. I turned it down. She knocked again and complained. I thought she couldn't be serious so I questioned how loud could it possibly be? She invited me into their apartment and I must admit I was suprised, the sound was louder then I thought it would be.
So my suggestion? Next time she is cranking the music invite her over to your pad. Be nice about it. Have her sit down on your couch and show her how difficult it is for you to watch Dancing with the Stars with the sound coming thru the wall. Take this time to get to know each other and bury the hatchet (I recommend a nice blunt to ease the tension). The whole point is that you want your neighbour to think twice before they crank their stereo the next time.
