k so me and banndit live in a ground level apartment and we have a tenant that lives above us that has a two yr old child. now we are having issues with noise form them there are loud heavy thuds and sounds like someone (her kid most likely) running around the apartment, she vacuums at LEAST 3 times a day, and sometimes i can distinctly hear her yelling and the child screaming and crying all day long! now we sleep during the day cause of work at night, our noise ordinance is quiet from 10pm to 8am and we need to sleep form 2pm to 9pm right when all this noise is going on. i've talked to our neighbor and to management and nothing is being done! the excuse our neighbor gave is "hes a two yr old and i don't think that they understand that and i'm feeling pressured for no reason" and our point is "we get that ur kid is two,but u cant find something a little more quiet for him to do from 2-9pm (wheres the parenting OMG)" for some reason the manager sides with her IDGI

any ideas (that wont get me arrested) on what we should do next?

It's an apartment right? A house you usually have to yourself.

well they are sort of normal times to be awake and loud... You guys have the weird sleeping patterns so if i were the chick upstairs id be sorta annoyed if you told me to shut up during the day. really its your problem, so you should get a new place.

theres probs more to the situation than i know tho so...

You would be better off either buying a small house instead of paying rent. Or you could move to a new apartment on the top floor.

the mother could be courteous and find something for the damn kid to do. It's not really her problem that you have a different sleep schedule, but it's not that hard to get the kid to do something quiet for a few hours. If nothing can be done I'd say just move. Moving is a hassle, that's something I know too well, but hey, you can either keep your apartment that you like and have no sleep, or deal with moving and be able to have sleep.

I asked the landlord what the non-quite hours are, she said 8am to 10pm. Needless to say our neighbors wont be sleeping in until 11am anymore.
