I've lived in various apartments for a while. I've dealt with loud walkers, dogs and the like but I just had new neighbors move in that top the cake. Not because their consciously loud and obnoxious, it's actually because of their children and their dog.
Now when it comes to the kids, let me preface by saying I am not a parent, and it is, I'm sure, far more difficult than I could imagine. However, their toddler cries until it SCREAMS. It also seems that their kids are adjacent to our master bedroom. This can happen as early as 3-4 am and has woken me up, before the parents quite a few times since they've moved in. (Please note, I work two jobs and my boyfriend is the closing cook at a restaurant, early morning sleep is vital to us)
The second problem, the dog, I didn't even realize until today (perhaps due to how loud the children are?). As I'm typing, this dog has been home alone and barking loudly for over an hour and a half. Most dogs quit it after a half hour or so but not this one.
These people have only been in the place 2-3 weeks. I've lost sleep multiple nights. I feel bad because it's not something they can remedy easily, or even at all. Any suggestions? Could it even help me get out of my lease a few months early and move elsewhere?
