I’m putting this out here to get a sampling from a larger area…
I live upstairs in a 2 person house with my girlfriend and puppy.
Downstairs is a mother, boyfriend and her son. The mother and boyfriend are 100% white trash. She doesn’t work, he works part time at Jiffy Lube. I think that she is on some psyc. drugs or coke all the time; and he is typically drunk. So that obviously makes for an explosive mixture.
I’ve only been there since the middle of June and there have already been 6 nights where they are yelling, screaming and SLAMMING their doors all night (until about 5am when I get up for work), nights that they both stay in the driveway in their Van (that doesn’t move/run) and the cops have shown up a few times. Oh, and she called the cops on the kids on the other side of the fence b/c they threw a popsicle at our deck (they hate her, with good reason).
I’m not sure what to do; the thing that’s bugging me the most is the slamming of the doors; it shakes shit in our place, wakes us and makes our dog start barking.
I have loaned a door plane to the boyfriend to shave down the swollen doors so they don’t have to slam them…but i doubt he’s done that yet (its been a week).
What would you do in this situation?
