Dancing on the Ceiling

Last night after midnight, Jon and I were sitting in bed talking to each other, quietly. The lady downstairs banged on her ceiling five times which shut us up mid-sentence and we heard her screaming.

We were told that if anyone complains about our noise level we may have to carpet the place, so for me the cheapest solution would be the best.

I was thinking of carpet tiles. Does anyone have any experience with these? Are these good sound insulators?

how about you save your money and simply go downstairs and tell your neighbor to stick it where the sun doesn't shine? you guys are quiet people. i suspect she is probably single and sees you happy and smiling with your husband, which makes her jealous. just go put her in her place.

Yes, very true! Are you not going to be able to TALK in your own apt? In your own bed??? How can she even have heard that? If she is screaming, maybe she wasn't responding to you. Maybe it just sounded that way. Geez, some people.

I'm pretty sure the banging under our floor was meant for us.

File a complaint because her banging and screaming is disturbing you.

Your neighbor would LOVE a housewarming party at your place.

You know, I just got a pogo stick (in the free box at work; I think it's eventually destined for B.'s niece.) Want to borrow it?
