Someone who lives in the apartment above snores very loudly, and the floors are thin enough that it keeps me up at night. I’ve lived in this apartment for two years now, and for the first eight months or so I stuck it out with earplugs and a fan (and a lot of tooth-gritting), but then gave up and moved the bed to the other bedroom (yes, I’m fancy and have a two bedroom apartment). Bliss! No earplugs (which really hurt, make me sleep poorly, and may potentially damage my ears), no fans (which irritates the people who live below me and make me cold), just sleep.
And then last week the snoring moved. I thought maybe they had visitors for Thanksgiving, so I left it be. But it’s continued on, and there’s no snoring in the original bedroom, so it’s clear that someone’s moved. I’m fine with moving my bed back, but I’d rather know for sure before I do it, because moving my bed and rearranging my apartment is a pain, and I’d rather not have to do it every week. So I gather my gumption, and go upstairs to have a conversation I’ve been avoiding for two years now. The lady who answered the door told me, in rather offended terms, that no-one there snores and there’s no issue. And then slammed the door in my face.
So, internet, help me out here. Any suggestions for how to deal with this? I’m leery about moving the bed because I’m sure once I do that it’ll move back to the original room, but you guys, I need some sleep.
