I got this link in my inbox today and thought I'd share. I have my own problems with rowdy and sometimes less than hygienic neighbours and I thought this link provides non violent alternatives to taking revenge.

If you work in-house, this will be especially useful. You may not be in my situation, but you can at least have a laugh.

Just a little taste:

Thanks Viktoria,
I had a much needed laugh at this!

My husband and I are in the middle of composing a letter to our oh, so wonderful new neighbours who bought the flat upstairs and are quickly making friends with all of their new neighbours.

They've been completely renovating their flat for 6 weeks now and counting (apparently 2 more weeks to go). Lucky for me (the only person to work from home in our building), I have the unique opportunity to practice tuning out noise all day long. And lucky for everyone else who misses out on all the fun during the day, the noise intensifies after 5pm, on weekends, and on holidays when all of their friends and family come to make music with hammers and saws.

Perhaps after checking out this website, we'll switch to a more passive aggressive style Or just leave a copy of "How to Win Friends and Influence People" in their mailbox.

Thanks so much Victoria - having shared many flats in my time, I can fully empathise with various notes on there *rolls eyes*
