Weird behavior from the neighbor
Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated.

This started for more than 2.5 years ago. To make the story short, whenever I use the faucet in the bathroom someone else starts doing the same thing. The person even starts as soon as I enter the bathroom sometimes. Sometimes this is accompanied by bangings in the floor, knockings.

One time more than 2 years ago (after this had been going on for quite some time) I heard someone shout what sounded like "drink in the kitchen dammit!". Then I decided to call the upstairs neighbor. He said it was none of his business, that he had no right to complain and that my rinsing with water didn't disturb him at all.

At the time I also mentioned I have OCD. This to explain why I wash a little more than usual. After this someone started putting shit on my bike. Not sure there's a connection.

Also directly after this the flushing could be heard again. This even if I tried to make as little noise as possible.

Since then its been over 2 years and it still continues.

I can't be sure it comes from the neighbor above but one time he told me (without me asking) that the knocking could be his dog banging a bowl in the floor.

I've also asked several times after if it disturbs him. He's always said no. Still someone starts this flushing when I'm in the toilet several times a day. This also happens in the daytime.

So I'm not sure it comes from upstairs even if it prolly does. Also it can't have anything to do with the pipes. It's irregular and increases on occasion. Sometimes accompanied by other noises as I wrote.

So what the hell could be the purpose behind this? I have my theories but I've come to the conclusion no sane person would keep doing this for so long. I try not to let it get to me but it's hard especially since I have OCD.

What are your thoughts about this?

What makes you suspect the one neighbor over the others? And whoever is doing it has problems btw. They have too much time on their hands. Have you been able to islate who is home when its happening?

Re: Weird behavior from the neighbor
I cannot help you but i had an upstairs neighbor years ago and every night for hours you could hear water being run or flushed and i mean 5 or 6 hours in the evening. Also this person walked across the floor in shoes again for hours didnt even seem to sit down at all. It was totally bizarre they never seemed to sit down not at all. Id go to bed about midnight and they would still be at it. No matter what room i was in. We used to hear dragging noises across the floor and i can only imagine a chest but seriously how many times would a person need to do that. She was the weirdest neighbor we ever had and we were never able to work out what she was doing. Try not to let it bother you too much i know its upsetting when people are weird like that.

Re: Weird behavior from the neighbor
Its one of two things, and im betting its the first

1. your OBSESSING about your neighbors, it sounds to be COMPULSIVE somewhat and to some degree a DISORDER. If only they had a name for that.....

2. Dude upstairs knows you have OCD and is now messing with you to see how long it will take you to crack

It isn't plumming related. I clearly hear someone banging on the floor or knocking on the walls. Also that someone starts rinsing (flushing?) with water almost as soon as i enter the bathroom. It's no mechanical thing. The intensity of the flushing increases sometimes.

It is someone doing it. Ok, it could seem lile I'm the one who is insane. Surely, if I would be hallucinating I would hear something more interesting than these silly and boring things.

On thing is clear... The person doing it can't be sane. No sane person, not for any reason would keep doing this for so long.

Also I hear NOTHING from my neighbors downstars. If I were to act like some nutjob because of them I would deserve to be shot. Now, the person upstairs can hardly hear more than I hear from downstairs.

So what do you make of this madness?

Re: Weird behavior from the neighbor
The person (or persons) doing this has of course every right to do so. It just gets on my nerves some times.

Firstly... Not only is it my right to use the bathroom at night, it's also something I have to do. Like these "individuals" (or who the fuck it is) are doing these things even when I take a crap or pee. These are things no human can avoid doing.

Secondly.. I have OCD and I often don't feel very good. So to have this added as an extra burden...

Thirdly... If I intepret this behavior as some kind of "complaining" then wtf? I try to make as little noise as possible. The only time I myself open the tap fully, is when O get pissed of at the weird behavior.

So my theory is that the neighbor who is behind it think I have wronged him (her/it) in some way and is doing this as some kind of long lasting revenge.

Ask a friend to go upstairs and listen by the door.
Co ordinate an exact time that you will go into the bathroom.
Then see if the friend hears activity from the apartment at the same time. You will at least know if it is purposeful. If it is not then we will have to figure out something else. If it is, you will need to figure out how to prove it or move.

Isn't it overkill to move because of a thing like this? Ok, it seems very weird to me but whomever doing it isn't really doing anything wrong.
