Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Valid complaint or am I just too noise-sensitive? (basically SOLVED)
Hi folks, I am hoping H/A can give me some perspective on a problem I am having.
So, I am living in an apartment building for the first time and it is pretty noisy. I understand that this is just a part of living in apartments, especially little old crappy buildings like this one. I have gotten used to being able to hear my neighbors argue, babies crying, people playing music, etc. Also I am usually pretty okay with noise; I can fall asleep with loud music on, study on the bus, etc.
Recently a car started being parked in the building carport right underneath my window. The alarm on this car makes a "chirp" noise, I guess to show that it is activated. It makes this noise roughly every 60-90 seconds; I can hear it clearly in my apartment with all the windows closed and the blinds drawn. This noise is loud enough to keep me from falling asleep and sometimes wakes me up in the middle of the night.
This is driving me nuts. Am I crazy, or is this worth complaining about; if so, to who? The owner of the car (I think I know who it is)? My landlord? I have never had any problems with any other tenants, pay my rent on time, etc. etc. so I am good on that front. Am I just oddly sensitive to this one thing or am I justified in being annoyed by it?
Also, I am out of here in less than four months; given that, do you folks think it is worth making an issue out of it?
Spin isn't in academia? You're in for a real disappointment when you go to your first conference and see two old men with mighty beards politely implying that the other person is more capable of fucking a dog then writing a scientific paper.
