    It is quite amazing for EG that over the last few pages of everyone moaning what they can hear from their neighbours nobody has mentioned hearing them getting up to no good.

    Standards are slipping.

    Here's a fresh moanup: the miserable woman in the flat across the hall has a dog that's recently started barking and barking and barking whenever she goes out without it. Luckily we're moving in the next month or so, but it's a bit annoying. Cyanide sausages through the letterbox?

    Having a dog when you live in a flat seems inconsiderate to your neighbours and the animal.

    Piss through the letter box to teach the dog who's boss?

    Weirdly I've looked out the window a few times recently and have seen Tom Champ walking down the road. I should have stuck my head out and bellowed at him.

    My office is a few doors down from your's as well. Plus Todd Phillips lives around the corner from me. Creeps!

    If it is you above me craigy you've grown fabulous man boobs since the last time we met.

    @Gl3n That champo gets about a bit. I saw you the other day in the pavillion gardens, but was shovelling a sandwich into my face and had mayo all over my chops so was embarrassed to say hello.

    The noise issue is a total fucker from both sides - living next to someone who makes so much noise it impacts on your life or being worried to live normally for fear of disturbing a neighbour.

    Both have a massive impact on your life. In some ways the situation would be easier if they were being really inconsiderate as others have said, as you could involve the council with monitoring etc if they were always having parties or really loud TV etc.

    If you cant or wont move out, but are renting, is there anything you can try to alleviate the situation? If you are at all handy with a tools (oo-er) you could feasibly head down the local builders and line your ceiling with boards and sound insulation to help stop the airborne noise coming through. It wouldnt do much for vibration noise, but if you get a plasterer in to finish it all off your landlord need never even know....

    @craigy Lunch breaks are holy. My office is entirely composed of females so had you said something I may have chewed your ear off about football, carling lager and tools.

    I think my neighbours have been ended...I never hear a peep from anyone in my block. The walls are either awesome or they're all incredibly quite!

    It's not impossible that the landlord might allow you to pay for some work like this as well. Especially if it makes tenants more like to stay for longer. However, I'm pretty sure putting in a false ceiling is quite pricey. Also, proper sound proofing isn't cheap either.

    My in-laws are like ghosts - you can't tell they are in a house if you are in a different room. I used to lie in bed waiting for someone to get up, before I realised that they just sort of glide around like ghostly monks. They have the volume on TVs so low I can't hear it - bizarrely they mute it during ad breaks (but still watch...).

    But they have this issue in a flat they have in Poole - the folk down stairs are really narky about noise, and have been really aggressive and abusive. When we visit, they go bananas :)

    Good point, never would have thought that landlord might be open to this.

    Shouldn't be too pricey to have the lounge and bedroom ceilings (for example) done out. Systems are available - screw fix metal sections at regular intervals, commercially available sound insulation, plasterboard, jobs a good un.

    My neighbour on the left practises the oboe and drums, I hardly hear him to be fair when I have the TV on which is most of the time, I do like to tootle on my harmonica at times though so it balances out, it doesn't bother me at all, live and let live.

    Its loud, which is odd because I never normally hear a peep from them.

    It is like they are right here in the room.

    Toot toot toot. Fuckers.

    The couple downstairs are in a band and have a practise every now and then, but it's mainly violin, guitar and singing and thankfully not electric stuff and drums. I just pump up the TV / music / whatever a bit. I have memorised one of their songs though and I sing it occasionally without thinking, not sure if they think I'm taking the piss.

    Someone keeps calling my neighbour's phone. Like 20 times in a row.

    a) they're not in

    or

    b) they don't want to fucking talk to you

    STOP FUCKING RINGING

    I know its a very minor gripe, but I do wonder what the fuck my neighbour does to warrant so much hoovering.

    Literally thrice a day most days. She does it in the morning before work, when she gets back from work and, quite often, before she goes to bed.

    Tbh, she needs to spend less time brushing the carpet and more time brushing her teeth. Its like an old graveyard in there.

    C) They are dead. Murdered. The killer is making his way down the road. The police are ringing everyone in the street to warn them as they are busy with a cat in a tree.

    I'm currently feeling a little sorry for my neighbour. My daughter has taken to waking up howling 3 or 4 times a night. I mentioned it to my neighbour the other day and she was fine about it, but you can tell she was a bit annoyed.

    Surely the solution is to buy a detatched house where the distance to the neighbours can be measured in hundreds of yards?

    Our neighbour put some rubbish in our bin today. I'm very tempted to tut loudly within earshot.
