Q: Oh no! We've put two months of hard work into our new duplex apartment to make it a wonderful place to live, only to realize that we have the kind of downstairs neighbors who send out angry (not so) passive-aggressive notes. There's no insulation between our vintage hardwood floor and their ceiling, so while we are tiptoeing, they think we are stomping around. What should we do?Sent by Sweatergirl
