I’ve got roommate problems. Two girls, best friends, moved in at the beginning of August. Girl A is fine. Girl B gets drunk and wakes me up on a regular basis (9 times in the last two months). I guess I am a fairly light sleeper, which compounds the problem, but she will have people over and start singing or turn on her stereo at 4am, which wakes me up every time. I have tried to ask her many times either during the night or the next morning to keep it down, to no avail. This last time she told me where to go in no uncertain terms. I think it is time for her to go, and I imagine her friend will want to go with her, though I have no quarrel with her.
I rent the apartment from my landlord, and only my name is on the lease. However, and I don’t know if this is relevant, my lease officially expired a couple of months ago. It has continued on without any discussion of the matter (my landlord is pretty cool). After realizing that talking to her wasn’t doing the trick, I called the police to ask what I could do. They suggested that I go through the landlord. However, I don’t imagine that he has dealt with this kind of problem before.
Whaddya think? What can/should I do? I’m gonna talk to the landlord this evening, but I’d like to have a solution in place, if possible.
Thanks. I’m gonna try and sleep now.
