You're a lucky man. My neighbor has friends in just now and it sounds like a bunch of drunken witches around a bubbling cauldron.

We all live on a new build estate and so moved in at the same time and got to know each other. I think that has helped.


I'm far too antisocial for that kind of gooseberry fool. strawberry float society and strawberry float all of its demands.

There are between 8 and 10 flats in my section of this building and I've never made eye contact with any of the neighbours. I'd like to keep it that way if at all possible.

That said... the people upstairs are very loud. They've done something to the floors where it now seems like elephants are walking on them instead of what I assume to be normal well adjusted people. And they stay up quite late and have parties on random days. At one point when I was between jobs they were playing electric guitar very loud at 3am. I was up anyway so I didn't particularly care too much but on a before work night (Sunday-Thursday) I want everyone to shut the strawberry float up by around 9pm.

Also our car parking is unsecured and there are no allocated spaces and once or twice I've had to leave my car on the street like a commoner. Abhorrent scenes.

I live in a large block of 'luxury' flats that is populated almost exclusively by the student children of very rich Chinese parents.

They're unbelievably inconsiderate. Anyone outside their bubble should be honoured to even be in their vicinity. Why the strawberry float do they spit on the floor in public like it's the most normal thing in the world?

My neighbours are great. The old lady to the right is really sweet. She's getting on a bit now so I pop round and check on how she is, if she needs anything etc. When it snows I clear her path and do her shopping for her.

I don't tend to see much of the couple to the left but when I do see them they're always really pleasant. The family who lived there before could be a bit loud at times but nothing awful.

The closest thing I have to a problem neighbour is the woman across the road from me who is overly friendly. She loves to chat but doesn't really let you say anything and has no concept of people needing to go to work or anything like that. She's harmless and I guess a bit lonely but she can talk forever.

Pretty sure our new neighbors upstairs, or the teen girls who so often visit them, are porch pirates. :x

Current neighbors seem fine, haven't heard a peep out of them. Last neighbours one was fine and the other really nosy complained about anything exterior to the properly even offering to cut bushes down to a stump for us (weren't even by her garden but the other side) and swept the street at least twice a week... When we moved out and asked after us all she wanted to know was if the property would be empty probably paranoid about squatting :roll:

Barking dogs are strawberry floating annoying, especially when people with barking dogs complain about noise like hifi on medium.

That's mean Lewis, I suspect brain differences however about 10 years premature to get into business before refining a product..

They appear to be engraving with a strawberry floating Dremel, and a microscopic bit jackhammering all over the place. I've tried it and it kind of works but no way could I sell the outcome for anything decent. Which is why I use cad cut mask and acid.

And why are all those t shirts A6...

My old neighbour was a great chap, he used to share his crop of tomatoes from his greenhouse and we'd share our apples and chillies. Sadly, he had a heart attack a couple of years ago and his daughter moved in to look after him as it left him very frail. Of course, the daughter has two little shitbag Staffordshire Bull Terriers who insist on barking all day, biting holes in the fence to get at my two cats and have invaded my garden a few times now which isn't ideal when my little nieces or nephews visit. Should probably toss some rat poison wrapped in bacon over the fence. :shifty:

The neighbours on the other side are okay, they moved in a couple of months ago and aside from some drilling at 8am last Sunday they haven't been a bother at all.

I live in a building with 6 flats.2 flats per level. We were lived here 9 months now, and I still haven't met 2 of the neighbours :lol:

The guy above me is Chinese, he has a squeaky door you can hear every time he opens and shuts it, which is constantly. On Saturday evenings at nine there's karaoke, which is pretty funny to listen to, but it makes the annoying neighbour downstairs bang on the ceiling to my flat because the music is so loud (the guy upstairs is normally finished by 10pm).

The guy downstairs is an old guy up in his 80s. He is a pain. When we were moving in he went and sat in his car with the do it open, and literally watched us move all our stuff in, he only went in moments after we were done. He then went on a rant at me about "the building rules" - no dogs in the building (lies, I was told I could have 2 by the council if I wanted them, and there's a couple of samoyed dogs that live across the way) no children allowed to play outside (I wouldn't want my daughter to play out with him watching, he's a curtain twitcher) no loud music, and "what he says goes".
He went on a rant to someone visiting me saying he hated kids and that if we were noisy " he'd give us what for".
He claimed he can't get up the stairs - the past month he's been at my door 4 times for little things that he could have told me when he caught me coming home in the hallway from taking my kid to school.
And he watches who's coming in the building, so if he catches you, he can complain to you about stuff for a few hours on end whilst in the hall, not caring if you need to be doing or going anywhere.

Got an old couple and their 30/40 year old son next door who we're kinda at odds with because they constantly knock through the wall whenever there's any form of noise (talking, gaming, watching TV) and don't exactly deal with it in a sensible manner. Shouting over a fence when getting back from cinema at 11pm to moan about dog (when their dog barks just as much) is stupid.

Then end of last year the son came marching into the back garden and threatened house mate, so we've since had the community officers in and it's been upgraded every time the knocking continues. I think we're on the actual police now.

Tis pretty ridiculous.

You don't need to ask him for his address. Just do a WhoIs look-up. Of course, this also tells us where Errkal lives.
