If nightmare neighbors are causing your noise problems, you have probably fantasized about getting some neighbor revenge....
You've had it. You've tried being civil and asking your neighbors politely if they can keep it down. Perhaps you've tried enlisting the help of the landlord, or you've called the police when the disturbance was beyond all reasonable limits. Nothing has worked; the noise won't stop. It continually invades your home and destroys your peace, and it's driving you mad
You're normally quite reasonable and tolerant, the kind of person who'll go the extra mile to help out a neighbor in need, but you're at the end of your rope. You've come to the realization that these people are simply never going to change their ways, and in fact you sometimes have a sneaking suspicion that they're making even more noise than before, just because they know it bugs you so much.
You've given up hope that the noise problem will ever get better, at least until one of you moves away. Somehow, you ended up living next to some totally inconsiderate, downright nasty people. They are the Neighbors from Hell. You've given up looking for solutions; now you want ... REVENGE!
If you're thinking of getting revenge on loud neighbors, you're in good company. Uncontrollable noise can turn life into a surreal nightmare, and it's natural and human to feel the need to strike back. If it's payback time and you're fantasizing about the creative and immensely satisfying ways you're about to make their life hell, do try to keep these two pieces of advice in mind:
- Keep it legal. If you're suffering from noise now, you're really not going to like it in prison. It's not a quiet place.
- Target your deeds to the specific people who deserve them. Your other neighbors may be victims of the noise just as much as you are, and they don't deserve added misery from you. Also remember that there may be people living with the noise culprits themselves who are innocent and should not be made to suffer, especially if they are children.
A Taste of Their Own Medicine
But maybe you haven't quite reached that point yet. You still hold out hope that your neighbors might improve their noisy habits at least somewhat. Maybe they just need a little taste of their own medicine....
