How can I turn down the volume on my next-door neighbors?
I live next to a multi-unit apartment building with lots of families with children. Every day I am subject to blood-curdling screams, yelling, plastic toys being smashed on the concrete, and balls being bounced and kicked against the wooden fence with resounding repercussions. What do I do? I have complained to the landlord in writing. I have spoken to the parents. They ignore both me and the landlord. I've even called the cops, but they don't take my complaints seriously. Since I work at home as a writer, it's even more disturbing. How can I get some peace?
