Be Courteous to Neighbors this Valentine's Day

Oh, the lovers under many covers during the holiday of love.  If you have ever worked in leasing or even bothered to walk a large property during the night, you know about the sounds of loud love-making.  They can be grating on one's nerves especially if he or she isn't in a relationship or has many on-going problems.  Throw in the sounds of children who don't want to go to bed while sexually frustrated parents yell at them, "Go to bed or else!"  It can be a zoo sometimes around a holiday season.  So what to do?

Contact management about the noise only if it is consistently happening.  For instance, if you don't typically hear loud music coming from Apartment 10, it could be that he or she is purposely drowning out any potential noise.   If notified, staff will send a warning to the unit the following day without giving any information about who specifically is complaining about the noise. 

Be sure that you note the date and time loud noises have been happening.  You might ask courtesy patrol (if there is any on the property) to knock on the door of the residence who keeps up the noise.  If it is an ongoing problem, you can always contact the police.  However, keep in mind, for many couples it may be a long time before loud love-making happens again.  So you might want to use your earphones that night to fall asleep.

For those feeling a little frisky that night, try being polite and keep your voices down like put a sock in it!

Happy Valentines Day!
