Today, I was called an 'inconsiderate scum bucket' by my neighbour because I allowed my loud alarm to go on too long before silencing it. The only reason that I sleep through my alarm is because I have to wear earplugs as they have their TV on maximum volume until 4am. FML

Fight fire with fire. Set up alarms in hidden locations and tell then this will continue till they lower their tv.

When it comes to sleep disturbance it's an all out war

Now you've given them an incentive to turn down the volume. Rational Choice theory predicts it is likely they will change their behaviour. In real life, a heated argument seems more probable. Still, try striking a deal.

Set your phone's alarm to vibrate and stick it in your sock before you sleep. I've been doing this for a good six months or so and it hasn't failed me once. But you can set your normal alarm to go off a few minutes after the cell phone and use that as a backup if you're not comfortable with it.

I see a couple of options here: 1) Explain to your neighbors how their TV keeps you up and try to work things out with them civilly. 2) Dont be civil and give back what your neighbors dosed out to you 3) Buy some extra alarm clocks so that there's no way you can sleep through them 4) Tell the management/authorities about the situation: as a tenant/owner you have rights just as much as your neighbor does. In my opinion loud music/TV till 4 AM is ridiculous, but an alarm clock to wake you up is justifiable . . And if the TV is so loud you can hear it, and your alarm is so loud it wakes them up, it sounds like to me that there's an insulation/sound-proof problem in the first place. But regardless of what you choose to do, FYL OP!

Actually 84, I'm quick to think stuff through and a fast typer. . . You obviously didn't mind since you read it the whole way through then decided to comment. Congratulations on your troll fail *applauds* ;)

This is when you burn their house down over their tv.

If they caught you, claim you are sleep-depraved and you're are semi-insane. They'll let you off the hook.

Enjoy, don't forget the gasoline...
