This has happened to me a few times while working opening shifts.
That’s it. Kid gloves are off.
I’m going to the baranggay hall and filing a complaint against the upstairs neighbor. I’m going to get his/her name, file it, get a summons, and let’s get this sit-down done ‘cause the way things have been going it has gone way overboard now. I’m sick and tired of this.
We’ve all got a big event tomorrow at a hotel, and I’ve got to get work done, but these asshats won’t act like normal, sane people and not play loud club music at ungodly hours in the early morning. I’m woozy because of the sleeping pill I took, but it’s not working since I’ve got this horrendous music thumping through the walls and into my head.
I’ve tried going up there to ask them nicely to turn down the music as I have tried to in the past for the sake of peace, but this time the door was closed. Doorbell gets nothing. Knocking hard a several times on the door gets nothing. Went back down to our unit and I could hear them singing along to the music.
Went to an LGU station next to our building, and they gave me the above advice. I’m gonna get on that as soon as I’m done with what I imagine will be an awful day at work for me because of insufficient sleep. I’m done being passive and nice and just letting every thing slide.
After all, the Makati City Council has passed Ordinance No. 2011-019:
Unreasonably loud noise under the ordinance is defined as “operating, playing or permitting the operation or playing of any radio, CD player, television set, amplified musical instrument, drums, loudspeaker, videoke or karaoke system, or other sound producing device in such manner or with such volume so as to annoy the quiet and comfort of a reasonable person of normal sensitivities in any dwelling or residence; or with louder volume than is necessary for convenient hearing of the persons who are in the place in which such device is operated.” A sound would also be considered too loud if it is plainly audible at a distance of 50 feet from its origin.
A verbal order will be given to violators to tone down the noise. However, if the violation is deemed excessive, they may face a fine of P1,000 or imprisonment of up to six months, or both.
You can hear their music coming out loudly through the ceiling, through the walls. Starting from 1AM to 3AM. Making me get up out of bed, woozy from medication, and have to drag myself up to their door to knock hard and be ignored.
I’ve had enough of this nonsense.
Blue tape wall work.
