We're annoyed by our neighbors
Half of us are annoyed by our neighbors.
The main complaint is noise. Arguing and shouting is a major problem. But so are particularly passionate bedtime activities.
Gardening can also be an issue – especially with early risers who want to mow the lawn – and barking dogs are annoying.
Other than noise – cigarette smoke makes the list. The survey by the website Immowelt suggests as it’s becoming more socially unacceptable to smoke indoors, people go to the balcony – so the smoke can travel to the neighbors more easily.
