MY ANNOYING NEIGHBORS

I live in an apartment building sort of. Its just a few 3 bedroom apartments stacked on each other with a basement. I live on the ground floor level. The basement is our only problem, we get noisy at times, hey I got 3 brothers. Even with that, there was only complaint once throughout all the years. The people living under us changed many times; first I remember an old Polish guy who smoked, then some other dude from eastern Europe, the Polish guy again, and then a Russian couple in their fifties with another guy, also Russian who would shovel the snow for us. Then comes my current neighbors living in the basement, they are Muslim.

Throughout the years, all the ones living in the basement never had any problems with us. With the new ones we have problems, I can hear them now, screaming. At first I thought we were too noisy, but I noticed I couldn't even run (running makes noise) to get the phone without them pulling out the broom to bang on our floor their ceiling, so I guess its not our fault. Okay so we might be a little too loud for their sensitive ears, fine I'll try to be quieter.

Turns out they don't have sensitive ears at all, in fact they are practically deaf. They blast their Arab radio, playing Arab music, and its not even good! I always thought Arab music was held to a higher standard, but I never really heard it, turns out I am wrong. So we do what they do, bang on our floor which is their ceiling, doesn't work. When they do it, it works, talk about proportionate response (they are muslim I am Jewish = Gaza and Israel). Oy! and when they scream at each other in Arabic, it just is so annoying, thankfully they stop for the night. Have you ever heard people scream in Arabic, its quite loud (not quiet loud, its read kwite lowd).

These are my annoying neighbors, are they terrorists trying to ( A spider just walked by me now, I killed it, I'm heartless. That was weird) terrorize my life with their horrible music, or are they really plotting something when they scream at each other. It doesn't matter, either way I am going to come down and kill them (like that spider I killed, I feel powerful). I am over reacting, I'll just have to keep it proportional.

Get a good woofer, point it down and play some heavy metal :-D

You got a woofer to lend?

Moshe said...

Get 2.1 computer speakers with a good woofer. Woofer should be wood, not plastic.

Jacob Da Jew said...

Are they legal? Meaning, do they green cards etc? If not, just drop a hint that "INS" would be very interested in the status.

Green cards are from the country of Israel, I dont know what color it is for any other country. I could tell the FBI I have suspicions of them, or Homeland security.

Moshe said...

Green cards are for all.

Mikeinmidwood said...

Moshe

I know this guy who was born in syria. He said he didnt have a green card, it was something else, another color.

Moshe said...

There's a white card but it signifies a different emigration status.

Moshe said...

Oh, you think a green card is green. No, it's just called a "green card", it's not actually green in color.

Mikeinmidwood said...

Moshe

Lol. No I just knew there was a different color that also has to do with immigration. White might have been its name.

Dina said...

A white card is what you get when you come in on a visa. It has your entry number & departure deadline, which can be extended if you extend your visa. Once you're a permanent resident, you no longer need your white card.

Don't you think it's a little mean to shop folks to the DHS (former INS) just because you don't like their music? Aside from the fact that DHS is overworked as it is, and would not appreciate being bothered if it turns out these people's papers are perfectly fine.

I'd stick with the woofer. And possibly calling the police if the noise occurs after 11 p.m. in violation of city law.

Moshe said...

Wasn't it 10pm or is that just wishful thinking?

mlevin said...

It doesn't really matter what time it is. Police are hesitent giving tickets. Many people in the neighborhood would call police to our next door neighbors. Their teenage daughter had a tendancy blasting music until 2-3 am between Saturday and Sunday, whenever parents were out of the house. Police would knock on the door, but they wouldn't do anything beyond that.

Moshe said...

Anonymous call to the fire department that you saw smoke/fire inside and no one answering the door. They come and hopefully break down the door.

i got speakers if you want just tell me where you live or send a messenger to pick it up and they're yours

Moshe said...

Speakers aren't gonna do much. It must be a woofer and it must be wood.

Mikeinmidwood said...

Probably shouldnt deport them. They listen to the 11 o'clock rule, in fact they stop at 9. The FBI is a good way though.

Mlevin

The FBI does something for suspected terrorists.

Moshe

The FBI have it covered. I also got loud enough speakers.

Anon

Thanks for the offer.
