Dear A.S.S,

After reading ur posts about f*ed up neighbours, I decided to share about the a**holes who live above my unit.

I’ve been staying at my place for about 5 years. 2 years ago, a family shifted into the unit above mine. Since then, my family and I have been putting up with incessant noises such as hammering and drilling. In the wee hours of the morning, we can hear water gushing down our toilet pipes. Imagine that at 1 am when u are trying to get sleep after a long day at work and u hear this in ur masterbed room…

We have spoken to them about the noises. They just say sorry and after that, the noises will resume in 2-3 days. Once at 12 midnight, my wife and I went up to tell them to stop pouring water down the pipes because we can hear it very clearly in the master bedroom. Guess what was their reaction?

The couple just shouted into the bedroom, “Oi stop it. People complain liao”, and they carried on watching the TV with their poker face. Complain? It is common sense. Don’t do such things in the middle of the night. I was so angry but my wife dragged me back to our flat.

When I am sick and have to take MC, it’s impossible to rest at home because the unit upstairs seem to have endless things to drill and hammer.

Recently, the paint in our kitchen ceiling and toilet ceiling has been flaking. We think it is due to the continuous drilling and hammering done by the neighbour upstairs. It’s very unhealthy because we cook in the kitchen and it is very unhygenic if the paint falls off into the food when we are cooking.

What can we do? We have confronted them many times already. My friends say most probably, I would have to split the cost with the neighbour to fix the peeling ceiling. Is that true? Why shd I have to pay for what they do?
