Just got in from an afternoon ride and one of my neighbours came down to talk about the amount of noise that's coming from below him. Specifically the sound of doors shutting and pull-cord light switches. Now I can't think of any way to pull a light switch quieter, plus all the main doors are of the type that you lift the handle to engage the deadlocks.
I live in a block of flats, so some noise is to be expected but he wants the place to be completely noise-free!! The only noises I hear are him coming back from the pub at all hours of the day and the kids below playing with the intercom occasionally, but have never mentioned it as it doesn't bother me.
What really annoys me is that I try to be a good tenant by washing the drive down after washing my bike, only put the bins out on the designated day (others don't), park my car tight against the wall so others can come and go easily (the other two cars are parked at all sorts of odd angles!)and keep the hallway tidy outside my door (hoover it regularly, remove tyre marks off the wall). I also live on my own and am very quiet compared to the other tenants - my immediate neighbour sometimes wonders if I'm ever in!!
Now this isn't the first time he's mentioned noise in the building to other tenants, he seems to be obsessed with it. The problem is he's very hard to deal with face-to-face and doesn't see other people's point of view easily. He definitely struggles to see why others should be about at 3am when two of us (me and the woman next door) work in jobs that require 24hr flexibility.
