This is disturbing! - Page 7

He's forgiven since he is at least part Jack Russell. I love JRTs, so that makes him alright in my book. Cute little guys, both of them.

My parents want a JRT because they somehow think they'll be more behaved than a doxie... poor deluded people.

We seemed to have derailed the thread, so I'll get it back on track by agreeing about dogs and apartment managers. You could have a rave going on downstairs, but you're dog barks once and that's it.

And for the record, Pixel may be small, but she's scared away many a salesman with her growl and bark. She sounds like a German shephard. Funny thing is, if you opened the door, you'd be greeted by this overly friendly little dog who is just so happy to meet you. Completely opposite of what that growl suggests.

Ipodstudio - Of course your dogs are under the covers, you forgot to give your naked dog some clothes.

I'm sorry, but this is made my day. I'm very sensitive to noise, people walking or talking in the hall wakes me up at night. So I sleep with earplugs every night. For freshman year, the guy next to us would play the music so loud that it would sometimes hurt for me to hear it. The people below us came up and complained but all it took was to show them our room and they realized we weren't capable of such noise. The townhouse that I live in now, the neighbor has a bass guitar and a drum set. He only plays the drums in the morning and my only complaint is that he finds 1:30 AM the best time to play his bass. But I don't complain because it could be much worse and you just have to deal with it.

To get back to the topic, might I suggest that California has superb anti-stalking laws. I cannot help but wonder if a good attorney could tell you if this person has incriminated herself as a stalker. the proof is the blog. She's tracking you. Take her to court.

It won't fly, no real danger for Vikram security, but what an interesting idea. But just for the fun of it, the next logical step should be to obtain a restraining order for lets say:
300 meters...

That won't apply to the internet. No sense of space there, except, very close. All the more reason to seek legal assistance. I'm sure you could find a judge to put a restraining order on this bitch.

What a nut case...so what, she's had a sad life, why should she make this guy miserable because she's a lunatic who cannot rest? Can't wear earplugs because of a medical condition? BS! I wear them every so often and they work very well. I have these two slobs that live upstairs from me that have concrete shoes, when they "walk" around it sounds like their feet are gonna come right through the ceiling sometimes...we got used to it. They like to rearrange their furniture several times a month too and turn their tv really loud when they argue (almost daily). We got used to it.

Back on topic: Can you afford to move out? Might be a good idea to move along, this lady sounds like one of those whiners...no matter how committed you might try to be towards being quiet, she will always find something to complain about.

No, the dog on the left is a murderous dog. He's probably just planning his next major attack on Strippy (the naked dog).

OK, we gotta stop hijacking this poor thread..

So how did this thread turn into a dog discusssion?

Anyway, something interesting has happened. A google search for my name no longer comes up with the webpage, although it still exists. I wonder how that happened...anyway, I'm pretty happy about that for starters. I'm still going to take action against the woman though.

Here's some more interesting aspects of her behavior: the manager told me that she tried to get her fired within two weeks of her starting her job at our apartment complex by complaining to the property owners that she wasn't doing enough to control noise levels from the previous tenants in my apartment

Time for apartment manager to get her evicted.

She's preparing the worldwide release of the «stomping action» video she's recording since your arrival....

Amicalement,

P.S. Good news, with a good legal support you may even end up with a nice audio upgrade...

I just want to come in on behalf of Vikram here. I was also at the SoCal meet, and it was certainly not a rowdy, overly loud party. There were a bunch of people walking around -- yes. Running? No. Stamping? No. People were talking at normal levels. There was no music playing out loud (headphone meet right?). We were essentially all gone by 9:30 PM. Vikram was very concerned about the noise level, and asked us to be as quiet as possible. He did not have the attitude "She just has to deal with it", no, he said that we had to be quiet, and we did our best to be so.
She described that day as:
Quote:
The stomping continued unabated until around noon when new very loud, continuous, creaking, crunching noises were added. Sounds like the floors are being torn up or something. This mind-boggling noise was so amazing I had to see if I could see anything from across the courtyard. What could be going on? At 12:30 and 2:30 I checked but all the blinds were closed even though it was rather cloudy out; yet no lights were on. Why would a person walk back and forth hundreds of times in virtual darkness for 6.5 hours without stopping? These loud noises continue nonstop till 10:30PM. A grand total of 14.25 straight hours of hell! If I didn't witness it, I wouldn't have believed it!
The lady has a right to an apartment free of excessively loud music levels, people running and stomping and so forth, but she does not have the right to regulate someone's behavior to prevent them from walking around their apartment, inviting friends over that arrive and leave at reasonable hours (before 11), and listening to music at sensible levels. Vikram is not the type of guy to crank up a subwoofer and play rap at 120 db. This woman is obviously fixating on this to an extent which is unhealthy. The best evidence of this is that her complaints are not tied to Vikram -- they also extended to previous tenants and children playing in the courtyard. If children running around playing and making noise in a courtyard below you disturbs you, you have issues to work out. If you are this sensitive to noise, you need to structure your life around it, not regulate someone elses. You need to recognize that people are going to...dare I say...walk around their apartments and children are going to be children. If this causes you pain, you need to either live on the top floor, or move out of a city, where people are pushed together and forced to live with each other. For the rent she pays in Vikram's building, I am sure she could rent a nice, quiet house somewhere isolated on the Central Coast or further inland in our country.

Heh, funny thread. And there are definitely two sides of the story.

Oh no! Please understand that this is exactly what you do NOT do, it will sound like an earthquake downstairs. My upstairs neighbor did this, walked around normally (i.e. like you do down at the street, briskly, heel first). It was a nightmare. My ceiling and floor (yes floor) shaked so much that I could visibly see lamps swaying.

He was totally unaware of the noise he caused and didn't even believe that it came from him. So our first confrontation didn't go well (probably thought I was nuts). To my immense luck his next door neighbor complained independently of me asking whether he kept horses in his apartment. When he finally realized that he really annoyed his neighbors he made an effort to walk around thoughtfully and everybody is happy now. No problem and no hard feelings.

The point here is that he wasn't jumping or running around, he just walked normally around (street walk). And you just dont do that in an appartment - one single "street walk" step causes a gigantic thump that walkes up sleeping people, and surprise, that pisses them off.

So, for goodness sake, understand that you should walk around lightly. Try to listen to your own walk, what do you hear? Do you hit the floor heel first? Walking lightly is such a tiny effort, so why not do it? My upstairs neightbor could (and would) learn it, so can you.

WRT the music - you have headphones right

All this being said, this lady clearly needs help. What a sad person - you really seem to fill up her life
