Idiots making noise during the day when I want to sleep

    Can someone please explain to me why this happens:

    The one random idiot who ruins quiescence for everyone thinks it's a good idea to start banging (hammers? wood? tables? i have no idea) as soon as it's "legal," waking up dozens of neighbors around them who don't need to be awake at 8am. Now I can understand if you want to get your work out of the way and get it done asap. But this asshole bangs just enough for me to wake up prematurely in a bad mood and then suddenly stops. As I dose off 10 minutes later the banging starts again for just long enough for me to jolt out of bed, scream out the window, "SHUT THE FUCK UP!" and then decide to try to quell my Nazi-temper tantrum by cleaning or organizing something in my room. Of course shouting shut the fuck up never works, but I thoroughly enjoy saying that to people because I'm a couture old lady on the inside.

    Life seems good again, but as I finally settle down back into a docile state of indifference and feel like I can take that 2-3 hour nap, the banging starts AGAIN but this time it's fucking LOUDER! To sum this up, this asshole bangs as soon as they can, stops for hours, starts again in the middle of the day, stops again for hours, and then starts up at the very end, but never ever in one session.

    WHY?!?!??!?!?

    Please do me a favor: if you're an asshole that lives really close to hundreds of other neighbors who don't even want to fucking hear you in the first place, when you decide to bang a bunch of shit because your psychotic enough to wake up as soon as the sun rears it's ugly UV rays into your face, do us night owls a favor and fucking get it done in one session. Or wait until after noon when the majority of everyone around you is up.

    Fyi people talking and saws/mowers/etc never wake me up. It's the vibrations from the sharp onset of noise followed by rapid amplitude decay that literally shakes me awake. I hate hammers.

    Get a bigger hammer and bigger nails, and start hammering away at midnight, just for a few hits. Then again at 2am. Then again at 4am. Then at 6am. Then you can sleep all day in peace. icon_biggrin.gif

    Try sleeping during the day on weekends...Time for a white noise machine. A window air conditioner or fan works well. icon_confused.gif

    I was once sleeping next door to a guy with a huge truck. It's like 5AM and he's talking to some other guys. He turns on the engine. The house vibrates. Then turns it off. Then turns it on again. Again. Never driving anywhere, oh no.

    Maybe he was one of those guys in the small penis contest.

    Finally got to sleep in my ROOMMATES bed at 3pm. Everyone was calling up trying to figure out where the noise was coming from. Sounded like fucking woodshop was set up *somewhere* in this giant apt.

    Although having finally slept after not getting enough sleep was pretty amazing as I fell immediately into sleep paralysis and then into lucid dreaming for an hour, woke up feeling like it was 5 hours later with sweat stains on my pillow, and the satisfaction I finally deserved for the god damn day.
