Of course there is...but you have to park at the corner of 5th and Jabip, in the middle of East Butt F**k.

I usually expect the refrigerator to just work too.

Well you just wait until they unionize ... then YOU will be keeping THEIR food cold.

I have a neighbor who has often and nearly regularly made ridiculously loud noises, sometimes in the middle of the night, from her condominium upstairs.
I put up with it for a year expecting that she was just moving in, and needed to get her affairs in order. But it became apparent that it wasn't going to stop.

So, I politely pointed out that the quiet hours are 10-6, and that they're pretty loud, etc.

Nothing. Wouldn't change their behavior.

They occasionally wake me with this nonsense... and I'm a pretty sound sleeper.

So, a couple of days ago, after a previous evening of loud thudding noises followed by a full day of fucking obnoxiously loud crap, only to not be able to fall asleep at 9pm, when I last heard this 10:10pm thud, I snapped.

I grabbed a dining room chair, went upstairs, sat in front of her door, and rang her doorbell.

Repeatedly.

She answered the door, and while we chatted, I continued to ring her doorbell.

I explained that I was beyond angry, and I rejected each of her excuses or attempts to deflate the situation. I maintained a steady scowl, and continued to ring her doorbell.

Incidentally, not exactly related to any of this, I find even her doorbell annoying. Like mine, hers is one of those mechanical jobs with a chime, but when ServPro reinstalled it, they fucked it up (as is their way), so it makes more of a 'thunk, clunk' sort of sound instead of a nice little chime. Which sucks, as I was sorta hoping I could at least enjoy the chime of her doorbell as I rang it. Absolutely no satisfaction in any of this.

I eventually grabbed my chair and went downstairs.

It's been pretty quiet for the last couple of days. I don't expect it to stay that way, though, so I'm trying to think of other creative solutions to this problem.

I want to install speakers that somehow aim mosquito sounds into her condominium.
Nothing loud... but something that gets under your skin and makes you want to leave, but prevents you from figuring out where the sound came from.

I worked in an used computer store in the early 90s. We would constantly be selling machines off the sales floor, pulling the machine, leaving the monitor, plugged in, turned on, but not hooked up to a machine anymore. 

Every single woman who walked into that store for 4 years while I worked there would go, "Oh my God? Can't you guys hear that? That horrible whining sound? How can you work like this?!?" 

Because women have higher frequency hearing, like dogs - and an un-synched CRT monitor gives off a high pitched high frequency noise that most men can't hear. 

I've lived for the past 25 years with my wife, and for 18 years of that with my wife and daughter. We've got a gas plasma screen that drives them both nuts. I can't hear it. 

I think you know what to do.

Hmmm... they're older women, though, and hearing range deteriorates with age.

I know, unusually, I used to hear that whine as well... which means even if I did this, and it worked, I'd probably hear it, too.

I used to *hate* going into this one Sears in my hometown because of that damned noise.

What about those directional speakers that create a cone of sound that you can't hear outside of it. :)

Sometimes an image is the best response.

I had gone off hunting for the pics for that and just didn't get around to loading them up. Yes. Was totally what came to mind once that topic came up.

I saw (heard?) one of those cones of silence used with the court system in Maryland while serving jury duty ages ago.

Clever use of it there, really. All that static prevented much of anything from being heard. Although, if I could read lips, like some of the deaf in this area...

Who says the humans have to be the target?

Calculate the resonating frequency of the condo and/or things in it. Then go ahead and make a highly localized earthquake happen, strictly inside of her unit.

Or you could ship her a pallet of expanding foam, and each can happens to have a defect and they all "fail" at the same time...

Heh... the scene from, what was it? Weird Science? With the popcorn in the house?

Wasn't Weird Science with Kelly LeBrock and Anthony Michael Hall? I think the one you're thinking of is the one with Val Kilmer.... <thinks> AH! Real Genius.
