He can begin with a phrase like: “I’m not sure what you know, but the noise from your apartment prevents me from sleeping.”. Many people are not able to understand that walls or floors can be too thin and any music included just above the limit will cause inconvenience to a neighbor. Especially if a person is used to listening loudly music in headphones or he has problems with hearing, and he turns on the TV loudly to hear. In such situations, the negative can only make it worse, make a neighbor feel under the attack and, according to the normal psychological behavior of a person, stand in a protective pose. Just explain to your neighbor that his music, TV or dog barking is reached your apartment and prevents you from sleeping or working.
