I agree with those that have said to speak to your flatmates and ask that they give you advance warning. Its a difficult one because if you are sharing they have as much right to do what they want as you do. If you had your baby for example and it was screaming all night there wouldnt be alot they could do about it but it could, as you have said, keep them awake all night. Thats the joys of flat sharing!
Am glad I'm not the only one who thought they were being unreasonable!!
It wasn't so much the fact they were having the party, its that they didn't think to warn me. If I'd known about it before I left for work, I could have had my OH's keys and stayed at his for the night. Staying at his long term isn't really practical, as its a bit damp, and has mould on the walls!
I'd love to move out sooner, unfortunately, the house we've found isn't available until the 25th May, so I'll just have to wait it out. My OH does have spare keys to his flat though, so I'll be getting those from him, just in case!!
They all seem to be avoiding me since then, I made my anger perfectly clear the next day, lots of slamming cupboards and doors before I left for work, which can't have felt nice for tired, hungover heads!!
If they say anything to me, I might say "it was so loud I'm surprised next door didn't knock!" but then that might make it obvious if the council do come round about the complaint 'next door' made!
The girl I can almost understand, she's only 19. But the bloke is nearly 30! He's proabably the most immature in the house, but he can turn quite nasty when he's been drinking, even though he's lovely when he's sober!
Turns out it wasn't just cigarettes they were smoking in the house either!! Which I really am angry about. You have to walk past the living room to get out the front door, and it still smells of cannabis now!!
Ohmigoodness. That's terrible! I would have thrown a complete fit, pregnant women can be kind of scary you know They should have warned you that they wanted to have a party, or better yet taken the party somewhere else. They need to respect you as you help pay the bills! I lived in a house like this once, and I ended up moving out 8 months before the lease was up because I couldn't handle it anymore. Hell, I throw a fit when my OH has his two "bad influence" friends over
