These are all new developments. I've been in this house for over a year and all the noise problems have started in the past few months(when they got the new dog and their daughter moved back in). For the most part I do not hear anything through this wall. Normal conversations cannot be heard. The only time I hear voices is when they are screaming at football games. Which is why being able to hear scrabble noises is not appropriate in my mind because the volume was extremely excessive. I will be banging on the wall the next time that occurs.
This past friday/weekend I didn't hear any early morning dog noise so they may have realized how much noise the dog was making or someone else complained. I will be approaching the Man and Wife(who own) about the dog noise if it continues.
The dog noise is so audible because our bedroom window overlooks their porch/backyard which means it pretty much sounds like the dog is in the room with me.
Too bad it's been so long since Bo Derek starred in "10".
Because playing Bolero on the stereo whenever the "noises" started would get the message across to most people who remember seeing the movie.
Is there another possible tune - say a generation or so more recent - that might give the person the idea that "we hear what's going on - so here is a sound track to drown it out on our side of the wall but that YOU might find romantic"?
I suppose any music that's ever been played at the same point in a James Bond movie might make the same point...if they like James Bond movies...
Me So H***y by 2 Live Crew?
Possibly "Your Love is Whack" for the couple who someone else mentioned the guy was either not very good or not very considerate as a partner......Snarky and Evil want to go through and pick out all the marginally appropriate songs - but they are snickering so much that they can't hear the music......
