If I...

If I wanted to hear your stereo I'd ask to sit in your car.

If I wanted to know why you were fighting with your girlfriend I'd stick my head out the window and ask you to speak up.

If I wanted to know that your car horn works I'd come downstairs and ask you to try it out just one more time.

If I wanted to talk to you I would have, don't try and talk to me becasue you think I'm easy.

If I wanted to hear your kids running back and forth up and down in and out all night and day I'd tell you...

If I wanted to hear your phone conversation I'd come down and give you my number so we could do a three way call.


I swear to God. I am going to scream. There seems to be so much NOISE today. All of it from outside. I hear come summer it will only get worse. I think I am going to invest in ear plugs...seriously people!



But that one kid on House wanted to be deaf and was angry when they put the transplant in to make him hear...

Ibcute, just think of it this way... you can't enjoy a sunny day without a few rainy ones. :)

go get a whistle and every time someone is noisy and annoying, blow it... it will confuse them and they'll stop to go 'wtf is that about???'

And when all else fails, a bowl of ramen makes the world a better place...

Well sorry to say this but I think you are so lucky. Why? Well if a deaf could just hear what you hear he/she will say. " I good to Heard that they are well."

It helps, but it doesn't eliminate.  We've been using one of those portable air conditioners, which helps a little more, since we can put it right next to the bed, bringing the white noise closer to us.  Fans help, soft music or the TV on in the background in the afternoons, and yes, on occasion, earplugs.  I've also found when I'm watching a movie at the computer, if I use headphones, I'm distracted much less by the outside world.

I've thought about that. I hope it works...I know we use a fan in our room at night to get rid of the "outside".

Actually, for me, anyway, Spring is the loudest, with all the windows open.  Come summer, the air conditioner acts like a white noise machine and helps drown a lot of it out.

It's really bad that you had to move out of a HOUSE. I can understand living in an apartment and hearing some noise, no one expects us to all be church mice. But people seem to have no consideration for their fellow "renter/owner" anymore. Where I grew up was far from anyone, it was quiet and there was no crime. It's sad that I always had this dream of what it would be like to live in an apartment in the city and the reality of it is it's no dream come true.


 Ive come to realize that the majority of people are just inconsiderate a-holes. And should have their tires slashed.

We actually moved from our home of 7 years and began renting it out, a couple of years ago because of the neighbors. We were renovating a cabin on the lake, our dreamhome and once the neighbor's kids became teenagers it became unbearable. The parents were never home and the loud wild parties went on every summer night and every weekend in the winter. When the parents were home it was not much better. They would stand on the deck and scream at each other down at the boathouse. Insanity. Now the children are grown and moved away but we hear from our renters that the parties continue every weekend because the kids come home. I am beginning to think we will never move back, and we really loved that house.

Normal people worry me

some neighbors are just d*ks!! grr..

In the house next to mine live like 20 people in a 2 bedroom house, they blast their radios on the weekends, I swear at 6 am I can hear the damn loud "chunty" music at my window.

Those same people love to race there cars on my street in the middle of the night! there cars are friggin LOUD!!

I had to go out and tell them to stop last time! (little o' me telling off 10 drunk people outside of their house to have some type of brain, I mean they dont even stop at the stop sign! talk about dangerous!)

Lets see.. Oh there's an old couple across from my house that park their car in the middle of two parking spots in front of their house, they yell at us when we park there, and sometimes there's no place to park in the whole street. I think they do this on purpose because they tried to make the whole parking in front of their house handicapped (even though they only have 1 car, a driveway, and a garage) and all of the neighbors fought it and we won. They hold a grudge on me particularly since i was their spokes person and did all the research.

Oh and theres this dog that barks ALL night! I mean Bark! Bark!! ::woof, woof:: it'll be 3 in the morning and he'll be barking.. we dont know were he lives but we hear him every night..


Lastly the BIRDS!! There gone for now.. But when they come, they'll sing all night.. Dont get me wrong they sing beautiful but after hearing them everynight for two weeks it gets pretty annoying.. lol..


besides those two neighbors & the animals (lol)  everyone else in my block is really friendly & cool..


.Live. .Love. .Laugh.

I knew you would have some great ones to add :)


~~I B CUTE! Don't argue with me I know I'm cute!~~

If I wanted to know how much your husband drank, I'd ask him myself.

If I wanted to listen to motorcycle engines rev at 3am, I'd have moved next to a race track.

If I wanted to hear other people bumping uglies, I'd visit AlmostEvil's site ;)

Ahhhh community living! This is my first experience living in an apartment and even though we chose a beautiful brand new apartment that costs $$$ we still have the same problems. One neighbor plays the radio from 10pm to 8am and the other has a stream of men coming in and out of her apartment throughout the night, all of whom she has yelled at loudly in the hallway in the wee hours of the morning at some point. I can't wait for my husband to finish renovating our new house. The hour long commute will be worth getting leaving the apartment life.

sounds of life! try chewing gum. for me, it tunes everything out. not that is is gum-smacking loud, it just works. it's magical ;)
