Loud juicer ... yes another noise complaint

My neighbour has a really loud juicer..
you can hear it from the cellar and she's in the 1st floor, I'm directly under her..
so I hear this juicer 3 times a day at least.. it's really loud..

I know it's a juicer cuz I have asked her what was that loud noise..
she laughed and proceeded to explain.. (something about a commercial Vitamix juicer from America)

I'm really fed up... it's so quiet here except for her and her juicer..
and she keeps asking me for favours.. (for example, to pick up her kid from Kindergarden when I get my daughter).. she thinks all is honky dory but.. not for me..

would you complain?? I think I should but what is she gonna do? she's into her juices..

I am still not convinced this is a serious thread.

Re: Loud juicer ... yes another noise complaint

Pick up the kids and put them in the juicer.

No more kids to pick up, and chances are the jiucer will be broken too. It's win win.

Well, what do you think?

Unless we're talking industrial sized juicer, that sends vibrations throughout the whole building, knocking things of shelves etc then I doubt you have room for a complaint.

If in fact it does do the above, then sit down, could be fun.

Did the Top Gear team design this juicer by any chance?

Change your wifi network name to "we can hear it when you get juicy, it shakes the whole house" in nerdy protest.

Re: Loud juicer ... yes another noise complaint

Now thats new to me! Spanish people complaining about noise in Switzerland. So far I've just known the reverse situation. See, we Swiss are not the only weird people around!

Re: Loud juicer ... yes another noise complaint

Like I said in the other noise thread, defecation always offends.. Have a poo in the juicer.

It won't help with the noise but you'll get a warm fuzzy feeling watching him/her drink the brownberry juice
