Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer
Well, I dropped by Bob (my downstairs neighbor)'s apartment tonight. We talked a little bit about the past week and his actions seem a little bit less ridiculous now. Apparently he woke up last night when I was brushing my teeth or something because he thought I'd been walking around to and from the bedroom for half an hour when he started pounding. I agreed to stick to our previous arrangement where I'll stay out of the bedroom after midnight, and I'll also try to be in there after 11pm less than I had. I gave him my number so he can call if something's bothering him instead of pounding on the ceiling. It sounds like his schedule requires him to be up at about 5am most days, which is part of why he's been so pissy about my bedtimes. I also agreed to turn down the volume on my alarm clock since he can apparently hear it pretty well.

Apparently he's complained to management two or three times now, I only got one notice from them. I wonder if it was after the first, second or third complaint.

I dropped my letter off at the office before visiting Mr. Bob Palombo, but I doubt much of anything will happen from it.

He pounded because he thought you were walking around?
What a fuckin' wacko!
And honestly, it shouldn't matter that he has to be up at 5am. I'm just assuming that his sleeping lightly isn't a new thing, so him being on the first floor should have been one of the things he should have taken into consideration upon moving into a new apartment.
I don't think it's fair to you, really. You're paying money for your apartment, all of it, and he's basically saying that if you use all of it, any time you want, he's going to complain some more?
Yeah, you've talked about it and that's great, really, but it sounds like you've compromised an awful lot already.
I don't know, man. It's a fucked up situation.
Maybe you should buy a house? *grin*

Yep. My best guess is that he's so "sensitive" that he woke up when I was walking back and forth between the living room and the bathroom getting ready for bed.
He's apparently lived down there for two years. He didn't say anything for the first year, just "suffered" in silence. I can't really believe that he took a first floor apartment, or that he renewed the lease after the first year. If I had a living situation I disliked as much as he apparently dislikes living under me, I'd have moved after a year.
Hopefully I won't hear from him again, especially after the management has a chat with him later.
Yep, I should buy a house. Unfortunately they're a little more expensive around here than in St. Cloud.

I would have to agree that St Cloud prices are a wee bit cheaper.
Yup yup.

Find him some earplugs and some information on white-noise machines. You'll both be a lot happier.

I've discussed ear plugs and white noise machines with him already. He wasn't particularly interested in trying either.

Wisconsin can hear your alarm clock pretty well.

Pretty well? They can hear it damn well.
