Grumpy

I am literally going crazy because of my incredibly annoying neighbours. I don’t hate children. I have some and some grandchildren too. But enough is enough. These people obviously think that everyone else enjoys the sound of their children screaming just as much as they do. They’ve decorated their yard like a Sesame Street set (this is a condo with mostly adults by the way), they have nightly parties with at least 6 loud adults and 4-5 kids. They play kids music outside. They let their kids bang drums and cymbals and so on. They carry on loud cell phone conversations outside while the kids are playing and yelling and banging. Complaints made to management resulted in quiet for about 5 minutes. I’m going to have to sell my unit now because I just can’t stand it anymore. This was supposed to be my peaceful happy place, but now it’s a daycare centre and I don’t know where I’m going to go.

Your building should have noise bylaws

that result in hefty fines to the noisy folks.
If not, your strata council is not doing its job.
I really empathize with your situation, sounds hellish.

Wouldn't want to be that family just trying to hold it together in this super stressful time. Enjoy your peace and quiet, you and only you deserve it.

@ sounds rough

Yeah, it must be awful to be them. Imagine having to be respectful about other people when it’s all about you? The suffering they must be going through! I can sure tell how awful it is for them by hearing the sounds of the big daily party they have with their family and friends, with all that raucous shouting and laughing going on. It’s hard to miss how miserable they are. The poor kids. So sad. None of the rest of us deserve to even think about our own needs when obviously the only people that matter are them. How unreasonable of me.

You must

Have a strata? Contact them and get them on those obnoxious losers asses. If that does nothing there is also a ‘condo Conflict resolution tribunal’. They settle issues like this all the time. You should not have to sell.

Let’s all just STFU

As a cranky ass bitch, I’d be pissed and you should definitely talk to them or your building manager about this. I’d die if I had to listen to that constantly. It’s a big reason I rent. I can pack up and move whenever I want.
