Muh, the most irritating thing happened to me last night. I'm in a university hall, a particuarly noisey one at that. I live on a 45 person corridoor (!) and I'm the person who lives near the door when you enter. That has the consequence of being woken up almost every night at 3am by some idiots going 'WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEY!' drunkely as they stumble past my door. Unfortuantly, this is made worse by the fact that I'm very easy to disturb in my sleep, and I have problems readjusting. I'm usally tossing / turning for a good 2 hours once being woken up. Being the sort of guy that has 9am lectures everyday, that isn't good! I also have very sensitive ears, the sort that can tell if a plug or appliance is on in a room without looking round. So yes, I have kind of doomed myself really Recently I've been getting arsey with people waking me up on my corridoor due to solid days of revision for exams (I'll save my *art studants have it easy* rant for another day), and they have appologised and have stopped waking me up, or at least are much much more considerate, and for that I am thankful. However, a new nemesis has appeared, whoever lives downstairs has been rediculously noisey. At one point I called security for his bass waking me up at 4am! Anyway, to last night: Basically this git downstairs, or someone, was playing the guitar REALLY loud with his window open. Hence keeping me up! I contemplated ringing security, but thought it would be a better idea to show my corridoor what I have to put up with... So I wander around and find two good mates who are still up. They say 'Are you sure its that loud? I really can't here anything.....' 'You can here it in my room! Its aweful :/' So we trundle into my room and I say 'can you hear that? its soo annoying!' Them: '........' me: '.....' Them: 'I really can't hear anything..' Me: 'Nooo listen, its there!' We all pause to listen, to find the sound from downstairs now only competeing with the hum of a computer for noise. me: .... eh... I admit.... its got quieter.... Them: Seriously.... you need help or something! You complain about noise that doesn't exsist! Get ear plugs if it bothers you! me: ... but... eh... its..... noisey (not really thinking my words through here!) Them: It really isn't *exchance strange looks* Well at least you have good hearing.. or something... *In a very sarcastic tone* Night....! Both then leave the room with '.....weirdo' expressions leaving me alone again. Then literally 10m seconds later I get a full rendition of Mr. Brightside by a drunken mob chanting :/ So not only do I look like some freak weirdo, I'm worried that people will lose my respect of being quiet for me when I'm trying to sleep. Its partially down to me for being so sensitive to noise (big ears you see!) but its not like I can help it. It feels a bit like this: Me: 'Quick come here! The voices... THE VOICES!' Them: 'Of course they are there.... Hold on, I've checked your room. there is no voices. They must be in you head' *Leaves the room* ... Voice: I'm still here! Me: NOOOOOOOOOOOOoooo! So basically, how do I go about preventing people thinking idiot / weirdo and then being less aware of the noise they are making?
