NEIGHBOUR PLAYS MUSIC AT 12AM THEN ACCUSED THOSE WHO COMPLAIN AS ‘THREATENING’

I live in a small building. I believe there are eight a floor. I live with my sister, and then my youngest sister lives on the first floor with her husband (referred to hereafter as BIL) and their four-month-old daughter. The apartments are pretty soundproof, with most sound transfer happening through windows and doors.

I am currently job searching and doing Grabfood to make ends meet, so I tend to work odd hours. I often get home around 10 P.M.

When I got home tonight, I noticed the apartment across from mine was playing some really loud music. Not thinking much of it, I went home. At around 10:45, the music got louder, and I could hear the bass in my bedroom. My bedroom is on the other end of the building from them. I decided to try and wind down with some video game time in my living room, so I heard my BIL calmly knocking on their door at 11:30. When they finally answered their door, he very politely asked them to turn it down because they were having a hard time getting my niece to sleep because of the music.

Whoever answered closed the door in his face and told someone else in the apartment to turn it up.

Around midnight, I texted my BIL, which is when he reported his encounter with them. I decided to go and ask them as well.

I walked up to their door, and sharply knocked five times. I heard them turn down the music a little bit, and then one of them answered the door.

“Hi,” I said while smiling politely, “I was wondering if you could please keep it down.”

They rolled their eyes at me and closed the door in my face. I stood there dumbfounded for around thirty seconds while they complained about my rudeness. I was just confused, and I think they interpreted my shock as malice because after 30 seconds I heard one of them say, “Oh my God, she’s still there!” And the sound of the chain lock being put in to place.

“Leave! Go to sleep!” Someone told me through the door.

“I’m trying,” I responded, “That’s why I asked you to keep it down.”

“Okay, we’ll keep it down! Go to sleep!”

Even more confused, I went back to my apartment. I think they found me threatening, even though this whole encounter was maybe 1.5 minutes long.
