The upstairs neighbor is making our lives hell.They don't work so they sleep in the day and make noise from 10 pm through 4 am.My husband has to be up at 5 am Monday through Friday in order to get to work on time.But he has not been able to sleep for more than an hour or two since December 3rd,2012.
