Living in an apartment building is a recipe for awkward situations. You’re thrust into the same space with total strangers, often people you have no interest in meeting, and you have no choice but to know intimate details of their lives – including their sex lives.
If you live in an apartment, there’s a 100% that you will hear your neighbors doin’ the deed. Most of the time it’s brief and relatively inconspicuous, but occasionally, two (or more) people go at it with such gusto that nobody else in the building can get any sleep. At that point, it’s time to take action.
There are plenty of ways to handle the issue. You can approach them in person, but that’s for the hardy few who don’t fear awkwardness. You can bang on the walls yourself, but there’s no guarantee they’ll even hear it over their throes of passion.
But the best approach is clearly leaving a mildly passive-aggressive note, which is what these people did. What’s impressive to me is the variety these notes have. For a bunch of sleep-deprived people, they mostly manage to come off as polite, considerate, and sometimes even creative. Mostly.
Check them out, and remember to keep it at a reasonable volume. Or invest in soundproof walls.
