FML - The follow-up

Today, I was motivated enough to run on the treadmill for the first time in a long time. The movement knocked my downstairs neighbor's ceiling fan down. FML

OP here. It was inconsiderate of me to use the treadmill in an upstairs apartment. Mine isn't very loud and I know the neighbor wasn't asleep, but I still should have thought of the noise. I was very embarrassed, but it is being taken care of and they weren't upset. They just asked me to move the treadmill to another room. I am a small woman-114lbs- I just thought it was funny imagining that I made the whole building shake.

They can still do whatever they want, (as long as it follows within the law and their tenant agreement). So if they want to work out and be noisy at lunchtime, that is fine, but at 3am they could be evicted for repeat offences. It kind of sucks for those that work nights, I have some long nights myself sometimes, but it is the law. If you work nights, you should probably consider moving somewhere quieter.

I'd love to know where you get your statistics from about 'most' apartments having a workout facility. I'm an appraiser for residential and commercial properties and its slim to none that the properties we appraise have anything more than laundry.

#23, The apartment I live in has a work out space, granted it is a newer building. I really don't see the problem in OP keeping the treadmill, it's better than loud, screaming children running up and down the halls 24/7.

Their fan must have been really old, not installed correctly or the ceiling wasn't of a very resistant material if the movement of someone running on a treadmill Is enough to knock it down.
