FootFall Noise is driving me crazy. I moved I moved across the coast into a new state and my very
first apartment (i've always renting homes) and the person above me sounds like Godzilla. I really thought my neighbors were a group of a guys, a kid and a dog because that's what the noise sounds like but instead its just one short woman, what the hell, I'm one short woman too and I don't think I make thatkind of noise. I tried talking to her, management and the police got involved and it got quiet, then another cop came out after everything was cool. The cop got the call late and I didn't want her to think i was calling the cops just for the heck of it especially since she was finally quiet. I thanked her for keeping the noise down and told her for the past hour I heard nothing at all and I was happy. Then 2O Minutes later there goes the loud damn noise again.. WTF? If I go up there again someone is going to need an ambulance. What do I do? I never want to tell someone how to walk in there own home. I thought I had a top floor (long story) apartment but I didn't. I don't know if I'm just too noise sensitive or if she is doing this on purpose or if it's the building. I feel like ultimately it's my fault for not getting a top floor like I thought I had. Should have double checked. I'm new here, been here almost two weeks and dealing with this already. Beautiful apartment, beautiful neighbor hood, excellent price.. why do I have to deal with this silly footfall bs. It's stuff like this that makes me want to roll off a cliff. I'm tired!

BTW-- Being the upstairs neighbor is no guarantee of quiet, either. I once had a downstairs neighbor who slammed her closet doors relentlessly. Late-night TV downstairs can sound like it's right next to you.
Wow. Imagine how your neighbour feels. Living in her wonderful apartment, and then you move in.
