¡SILENCIO, POR FAVOR!
How can I nicely ask the upstairs neighbors to walk a little more lightly? One of the new neighbors has an incredibly heavy step that makes the whole house shake (and makes the cat and I stare up at the ceiling in fear, and awakens us in the middle of the night). We're not all that fond of the new stereo, either.
I tried asking the landlord for their phone number; that didn't go over so well.
Bo suggested going up and introducing myself and gently weaving it into the conversation. So last week I went up with a plateful of warm cookies when the louder neighbor got home, in order to open the door to conversation. I knocked twice. Hard. But she never came to the door. (NOTE: In her place, I probably would have done the same).
I don't want to resort to banging on the ceiling. That didn't work very well the last time around.
Any advice (humorous or reality-based) would be greatly appreciated.
I don't want to have to move again.
Not for awhile anyway.
