So we wait weeks and months to rent these ridiculously over priced apartments. Once we get in we think "Ugh! Finally". And don't get me wrong, we are not perfect by any means, I mean, I have a teenage boy who games out, and we all know that can get loud. But at 10 PM, he is quiet. Even on the weekends. But HOLY COW, it is like we have a heard of elephants living upstairs. All day, all afternoon, all night long. I keep thinking they will go to bed, or chill on the couch for a hot minute, but no sir.

Before I get slammed with the whole "well you shouldn't have rented main floor" comments, we took what we could get so main floor it was. I have met the people upstairs, I won't mention what state they are from...hint hint...they have lots of wine, and they are incredibly nice, but my goodness they walk with some heavy feet.

Does anyone else have this issue? I am not the kind of person who is going to call the Management company and be like "yeah the people upstairs walk loud all the time", but I would like to kindly ask them, "Hey so after 10 PM can you wear socks when you walk or maybe just drag your feet like you are cross country skiing? K thanks". Then I think, "Well they pay a lot of rent too, they should be able to walk as they please". Maybe if these apartments were not going up so fast, they could install just a tiny bit of noise control for the floors. Extra padding OR the more expensive padding before laying the tiles/laminate. I know they make it, because I have installed it. You would think that with the price of these apartments, you would have a little better quality. Just saying.

So to my sweet neighbors upstairs, for the sake of my sanity, can you walk a little quieter? Thank you, your neighbor downstairs.
