However, my upstairs neighbor just got a treadmill and the constant THUMPTHUMPTHUMPTHUMPTHUMP is driving me crazy — and knocking things askew on the walls.
It's so loud I can't hear the TV and it is making being in my apartment completely miserable. I knocked on the apartment above me to ask if we could come to some sort of compromise and she told me she had no intention of stopping use, saying how much she had just spent on it. I'm trying not to be rude — like I said, I get that you will hear noises from other apartments, but I would like reasonable peace in the apartment that I pay just as much for. What can I do? Can you help me think of reasonable compromises? We both work the same 9-5 work schedule. Should I get the management company involved? It is completely awful. PLEASE HELP!
