I Hear People Pissing

Some kids see dead people, well I hear people weeing... all the time! It really gets to me when on a quiet night while Hubby is at the gym and the kids are fast asleep when suddenly, I hear our upstairs neighbor pee! Its bad enough his wife walks around the apartment with high heels and their kid runs around the house way past bedtime. But to hear their bodily functions really sucks.

When we lived in South Horizons, the worst thing was listening to our upstairs neighbor screaming at their small children at ridiculously late hours of the evening. Second worst was the unending construction in any of the millions of apartment units connected to ours. There was drilling right next door to us the first day we brought Boy Wonder home from the hospital. I thought that would all be behind us after we moved up in life and moved into this swanky part of town, but now its just more disturbing.

We try to be open minded about the whole thing and think about the noise Boy Wonder brings upon our downstairs neighbor with his constant running and dropping of large toys and ball bouncing. But at least our neighbors downstairs can depend on it ending every night at 8pm. Not so lucky for us as our neighbors upstairs don't seem to believe in structured bedtimes for their kid.

I'm just glad our upstairs neighbor don't seem to be an amorous couple and the peeing is the worst sound we have to bare with. Now I just wonder what other sounds our downstairs neighbor have to deal with? Better tell Hubby to pee quietly in the future!

same here: I hear wees, the flush, water running down pipes, people taking baths/showers and moving furniture for goodness sakes! at ungodly hours:) That's HK for you. But then when I lived in a condo in Canada I could hear the same things- thin walls, you know. Haay, it would be lovely to have my own home, far enough from neighbors so I can ahve my privacy. peace and most of all, quiet.

I hear toilets flush, and I don't mind those. Luckily, I don't hear much else.
