fucking neighbours

Dear Management,

I live in apartment #*** and I am writing to complain about loud music coming from the apartment below me. The tenants in that apartment regularly play loud punk music for several hours at a time in the early evening on weekdays and during the day some weekends. It is loud enough that I can identify the song and sometimes even make out the lyrics. The bass from their music vibrates the floor of my apartment and can sometimes be felt on surfaces of our furniture (such as a desk). I am a Phd student and my roommate is studying for her MBA and the music is extremely distracting when we are trying to study. I have on several occasions pounded on the floor to communicate that they need to turn it down but I don’t think they can hear me with the volume turned up that high. I do not, for reasons pertaining to personal safety, wish to confront the tenants directly. Please issue these tenants a noise warning.

Sincerely,
Vanessa Au

Hmmm... city noise ordances end at 10 pm. Hopefully you will get something resolved. Damn Lake City.

ah well, it is partly an experiment to see how responsive management is. I bet this problem would be even worse in the u district! noise doesnt actually bug me *that* much but excessive bass does get kind of annoying.

You should be able to call the cops if it's that loud.

I hope these neighbors aren't also the management.

It might be noisier in the U District, but I think you will get them to comply more since they are more student.
