Paper thin walls

By Anonymous - 20/01/2022 05:00

Today, I live in an apartment and all I can hear is my neighbours' bratty kids screaming with their new toys. Not only do I hate kids, making this absolute torture, I also work nights and only fell into bed at 6 a.m. this morning, so that’s 4 hours trying to sleep so far and I’m back at work in 5 hours. FML

Calmly talk to your neighbours about your situation and/or try to change your shift. In the meantime try ear plugs, move to a different room to sleep, find ways to soundproof your apartment such as a white noise machine. All else fails, submit a noise complaint.

Man I love kids and that shit is torture to me too. I feel your pain, OP.

Parents usually don't like it when non parents people complain about their kids. I don't know how it works in your country but in mine, you earn more money working on night shift jobs. Since I do work at night, I thought about ear plugs but then I wouldn't hear my phone ring and couldn't wake myself up. Isolating an apartment can be expansive and if you're in a rent, it gets more complicated. Lots of tenants don't care about your well-being as long as you pay your rent on time. I've had these kinds of problems and even if you get the authorities involved, things don't change and you might as well live with it or move out.

Get some ear plugs.

I feel you, man. kids are messy, annoying and loud - I have three of them.
