Don't Ignore Argumentative Neighbors, Loud Noises

With the weather cooling off and on again off again couples choosing to stay home rather than go outdoors as often, there is bound to be problems indoors.  Arguing, thumping, crashing sounds, and more go on in some apartments with emotional relationships and if you aren't too careful, you might be the nosy neighbor caught in the couple's cross-fire walking down the hallway.  So what to do about your noisy neighbors?

First, file a formal complaint with the leasing office.  Be sure you have typed or penned the letter with a copy saved for yourself.  Note the day and time each incident occurred and any other information that might be helpful to the staff.

Next, avoid confrontation with neighbors.  If you feel like you can't approach them about the noise, don't.  The last thing you need is for the pair to turn on you and cause problems.

Third, if others are complaining, encourage them to contact the office.  The more complaints, the more likely they will have to move.

Lastly, if the noise is very bad and you are concerned for someone's safety, call the police.  You never know you just might be the one who saves a life.

Ignoring turbulent couples who can't stand to live together, but can't stand being apart can be a neighbor's worst nightmare.  You don't know if they have guns or other weapons they plan on using.  You don't know if one or both is so intoxicated that someone might end up being murdered.  You can never be too careful, so be proactive and do what's right, but avoid approaching them in the heat of a battle especially when you don't know who or what is behind the door.
