    How late is too late?

    The people downstairs have been playing music so loud it is rumbling my floor (keep in mind they are on the first floor and I'm on the 3rd). I've already asked them to keep it down because my girlfriend has to get up for work in the morning. I've also called the cops on them for a noise complaint, and they still dont learn. Not only this, but I had to pay for a permit to park in my parking lot and there are so many people in my parking lot that I had to park 2 blocks away. When is enough enough? and what should I do?

    Am I being an *******?

    I'd be totally ****** about the parking thing. Pretty lame that you have to pay to park in a spot that you can't even park in. I would totally call the cops and complain about it. I know it's Homecoming and everything, but it's past midnight and it's just plain rude, I think.

    Re: How late is too late?

    Kinda depends on where u live. In an apartment u have to put up with more crap, thats the tradeoff....but that same rule applies to everyone in the apartment....some want to party, some have babies, some need to work early in the a.m., some do all three. I wld ask them nicely once.

    As I recall, Ames has an 11:00 p.m. noise curfew, so call the cops again. The violators should be ticketed for violating the noise ordinance.


    P.J. Farmer rocks!

    I didnt call the cops earlier tonight, just on a seperate occasion. The music is still going on and I'm getting ******.

    Re: How late is too late?

    I'd call the cops if the music is still loud as heck. And just because you live at an apartment is not a reason for unnecessary noise as a trade-off.

    Still no cops, they are probably tending to other more important things. It is homecoming after all.

    Not only would I call the cops, but if the parking pass is for a specific spot, I'd have the car towed too. I don't mess around.

    Did the 5-0 ever show up and save the day?

    Men want to have fun, women want to take fun out to the middle of the woods and shoot it in the head.

    Hopefully he's not still up standing by the window to see if the cops show up.
