Loud music

Sometimes our downstairs neighbours play loud music starting around 7 am. It wakes me up and then I can't get back to sleep. Our baby usually wakes up around 8 or so, so that last hour of sleep in the morning is precious!

When this happened on a weekday, I tried not to think much of it. But this is Sunday! Isn't it supposed to be quiet and peaceful? Shouldn't I be able to enjoy sleeping past 7 am on a Sunday without being woken by loud music?

Just needed to rant about this a little bit.

Re: Loud music

Yeah you should talk to them or to the landlord. There's no reason for them to play music so loudly so early like that. That's nuts.

Re: Loud music

you handle it however you want, however if you want to take a strong step towards integration, and be truly Swiss, you'll call the police on them without approaching them directly, and skulk round the corner listening to the police give em hell. Then the next day you smile and greet them as if nothing happened.

Re: Loud music

What kind of music, that is important.

Does your small child follow all the rules regarding noise? Mine don't so I don't have much of a leg to stand on when it comes to others making noise.

I guess that it would be rather embarassing if they said they turned the music up to drown out the sound of a noisy child

Loud music

Hi Amazonna have a chat with your neighbour. He/she might not be aware that you can hear the music. We have had a few neighbours in our building who would blush if we told them we could hear what they were getting up to
