Alright ATS, I need a little advice dealing with the zombie American hoard population. I'll tell you the events of what I'm talking about and then let me know if you have faced a similar situation and if so, what you did about it and what legal rights do I have and can take upon this issue.
I live with my girlfriend in our apartment which I consider to be outside the green zone, what I mean by that is that it's not located in the best area and our neighbor beneath us has been escalating the noise complaint guerilla warfare tactics on and off randomly for the past 4 to 5 months now. The first time we found out who lived beneath us was on a weeknight at about 10:30 almost 11 o'clock at night. Apparently our air unit was making noise and disturbing her so we heard a vigorous pounding at the door, of course neither one of us opened the door that late without looking out the peek hole or side room window first. It was dark and hard to see who it was so we didn't open it until the maintenance workers came and got the problem fixed and then got an idea from them who exactly was throwing such a fit about it and who she was and that it was in fact a Her.
Between that time period and the next incident she would either be covertly peeking out from the shades at us as we were leaving or staring me down when passing by occasionally. So about a month later after that she complained we were making too much noise at night (which we don't) and we received a noise complaint. Fast forward another couple of months later and she ambushed me as I was going up the stairs and she told me that we needed to quit walking on the stairs so much to which I quickly commented back politely assuring her we weren't trying to then with her single mindingly snapping back that she had already told us once. I humored her ignorance once again by commenting back with a quick response telling her that we are just living our lives and not even making an opportunity to defend us and try to articulate to someone so dumbed down and close minded that the kids were the ones to blame for playing that was making the noise. Anyway a week later she approached my girlfriend by the car as she was going to work and told her something similar but saying that it sounded like we have a couple of 300 pound people walking around up there. Finally, just the other day I was lying on the bed a little after noon and my girlfriend sitting on the couch making no noise and all of sudden I heard a door slam and her scream out hysterically to quit making that banging noise, called us damn fools and told us to get our asses outside then slammed the door back.
There was someone making noise somewhere but we seem to be the hot target despite the host of people living in the complex. We reported her actions to the authorities and plan on moving but is there anything I can do legally in the meantime?edit on 5-2-2012 by Brad Jones because: (no reason given)

Couple of suggestions.
Start nice. Is she old? Is she mentally unstable or irrational?
1. Take her some flowers. Go to her apartment and sit down with her, maybe she is hearing a ghost. See if you can pick up on something she likes, books, mags, food? Bring her a token.
2. If that doesn't work, you should start looking for a new place, or maybe another apartment in your complex. If she is unstable, there will be no reckoning with her, BELIEVE ME!
Good luck - you'll need it.

1. Start your own nuclear "research" program
2. Send missiles to all the neighbors on the block.
3. Get your other neighbors to attack them 1st.
4. Deny any involvement.
5. Finish nuclear "research"
6. Blow up neighborhood & yourself
7. Collect 72 virgins!!!
This will work..... I promise!
Peace be upon you!
