Is my neighbor kinky or just weird?

As is wont to happen when living in an apartment complex, you hear things. Weird things. Annoying things. I’m thankful that most of the annoying things happen before 10pm, but I’m disappointed that I rarely hear sex things.

At least, I don’t *think* I do.

The thing is, we’re not sure about the guy below us. I’m not sure if it’s just this complex, these people, this region or if it’s normal at apartment complexes to remain mostly mysterious to your neighbors – but I don’t know these people. I couldn’t tell you the first name of a single person in my building. There’s only two floors here, long buildings that stretch out in rows like legos not linked together and no shared hallways or entranceways. We peer out of our blinds at each other but that’s mostly it. Once a month a “hello” is issued in passing. So I don’t know this guy below us. I know he has odd work hours, and I know he’s not married. I know he listens to his music loud and his Nintendo/Playstation even louder.

But what the HELL are the noises that I hear some evenings?!?





Muffled, slow-paced loud thumps. It’s too slow for it to be a headboard hitting a wall. It’s the right pace for a sadistic ass beating, but my eyes widen in fear that said ass beating noises are reverberating like that through the floor and walls. So no, it just can’t be *that*. But what the bloody hell is going on? I try creeping down our steps to get closer to the offending noise but he somehow hears me, and the noises stop or slow down even farther.

Is he chopping up dead bodies?

    Creepy… O.O

    Perhaps he’s got some dumbbells or something and is doing some kind of exercise? Or maybe he’s trying to draw you out to get a look at you!

    ~ Oh no, he knows who I am, we see each other. I’ve suspected him in the past of stealing my mail packages, but he doesn’t know I suspect him. Weights could make sense, actually.

  • Maybe he’s just moving around furniture or something.

    ~ We thought about that, but it’s too often. And for too long.

    Could be he is trying to figure out a way to get you to sneak down there so he can see you…

    ~ oh this made me laugh. sorry hon, no way in hell is that the situation, lol.

    Wow – very odd. I like the thought of wieght training being the cause but maybe its a ball bouncing off the wall.

  • You always gotta wonder about things like that. We hear our neighbors above us making louds thuds in the middle of the night. We like to think it’s a take-down scene. :)

    LMAO! “Sadistic ass beating.” That’s damned funny.

    Reminds me of the old saying “I don’t have a drinking problem. I drink, I fall down, no problem.”

    thump = refrigerator closes
    THUD = drunk walks into wall
    THUMP = face hits the floor
    bump = head bounces on floor

    But it is probably the dumbbells and I don’t mean him and his friends. :)
