I hate this ! I hate noise! I know it's part of life in the big city, but hey, if there were a law that I had to like it I'd be doing life without parole.

i hate noise in general. bulldozers, construction, hammering noises are the worst. not even music can drown those noises out.

Which would you rather listen to: hammering or screwing?

I have jackass neighbors that feel 7:00 a.m. on Sunday morning is the ideal time to mow their frigging lawn.

lawnmowers and snowplows

snowplows at 5 am plowing out the used car lot across the street from my house. between the revving of the engine and the beep-beep-beeping every thirty seconds when the plow backs up...

man you want to listen to my neighbours. Live in a 2 bedroom flat with a friend from Dublin here in London. Next door neighbours are muslim. Am not anti-muslim or anything but they are constantly chanting or praying. Not only that, they argue a huge amount of time and their little kid is alway screaming. On top of that, they perform Bollywood-type music. And they practice in their flat. And they won't stop when they are asked... very very painful!

I know this is going to sound slightly disturbing and slightly voyeuristic.. but listening to people screwing is not the worst sound in the world!

I'd definitely take screwing over hammering.

absolutely! not sure where the chanting fits in on the 1-10 of annoying sounds. How about the guy I have living downstairs underneath me who is learning to play guitar and so far, has managed to murder Stairway to heaven 100 times over...

i live right alongside the interstate and it just so happens to be the stretch where they're doing construction. i have no idea what the hell they're doing but it's incredibly noisy. i can't hear road noise (except for sirens - i live near a fire station as well - and sometimes i can hear the train horns if i listen for them) but i can hear their banging around. asses.

Now some jerks are doing something *else* to that fg construction site next door, something has been going on there for almost two years, the noise is terrible. Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, I'm supposed to forgive, and here my luck has me just about wanting to kill someone instead. I'd better go to confession this weekend.

How long is this construction site going to be next door to you? If builders are anything like they are here in London, it could be quite a while.. may suggest moving to have a bit of peace... 2 years is def a long time to put up with hammering!
