Smile Incredibly Rude People

It never fails to amaze me how some people can be so incredibly rude and disrespectful of others. Following a stroke, I was forced to leave full time Rving and live in various long term hotels. They are able to furnish handicap accessible rooms, which Iíve needed for the past 9 years. Iíve never wanted to live in an apartment type of atmosphere, knowing that I would need to put up with disrespectful people at times, but I had no choice..

Itís 2 AM Saturday morning. I got out of bed to heed the call of nature, when I heard a large ďraucousĒ party going on further down the hall. Although they arenít my immediate neighbors, I decided to go to the front desk to let the night manager know about it. Itís just my way to assist other residents who may be afraid to confront the rude group in that location (I wonít tolerate people who act like idiots). The manager was able to speak to them (she spoke in Spanish, but thinks theyíre Portuguese). At any rate, she got through to them. Iím surprised that no one else complained (maybe out of fear of retaliation).

When I was full time Rving I rarely had any problem with noisy neighbors as Rvers generally respect each other. Thereís no chance that Iíll be in the physical condition to return to Rving. Iíll just need to keep adjusting to this unfortunate circumstance the best I can.

Thanks for letting me rant on this forum. I hope the rest of you are enjoying peace and quiet.

Sorry for you medical issues. Then there are people who are having a good time, door closed, and unaware they are causing a problem. Years ago we stayed at a Biltmore hotel and they guys next door were simply eating their room service meal. You could hear every word (they were not talking loudly), every clink of utensils on plate. Not much they could have done to eat more quietly. Just poor building construction.

I agree with you, Wildtoad. On 2 occasions here at my hotel I could hear my neighbor snoring. I think older buildings were better constructed. I've lived at both types.

On at least 2 occasions I was troubled by persons pacing back and forth in the apartment above me. This went on literally all night, and I would get zero sleep. I believe theses persons were drug addicts and sleepless because of that. I've been fortunate to finally get into a handicap apartment on the top floor in another hotel, where I now live. That eliminates having an apartment directly above me, but doesn't address the people next to me.

It's virtually impossible to find any living arrangement with handicap assessable rooms other than on the lower floors, so I was quite fortunate in that respect..

OP here again. I run a box fan near my bed at night which helps a little. However, when neighbors get out of hand the gentle whirring noise of the fan isn't enough.

Another source of contention is the fact most hotels/motels allow dogs. I've had situations where certain breeds of dogs will bark and howl all day until their owners return (may be one reason I prefer cats). Virtually all hotel/motel businesses now allow pets. Years ago, that policy was rare. Oh well, nothing can be done about rude people or pets.

How I wish I was full time RVing again! But it's not going to happen any time soon.

I carry a small white noise machine wherever I go, A Lectrofan. It's USB rechargeable and fits in my shaving bag. It's a necessity for light sleepers in the crowded world we live in. https://www.soundofsleep.com/product...sound-machine/

I agree, Old Biscuit. But in my personal experience noise problems from other RVers was pretty rare.



One time, while in an RV park in Elk City OK, I was troubled by an incessantly barking dog tied up outside of someone's fifth wheel. The owners evidently left it tied up there while they went on side trips in their tow vehicle for days at a time. A friendly neighbor evidently looked after the animal while they were absent.


Well, one night I couldn't take his barking any more. Since there was no night manager to whom I could complain, I called the local police. The next day or so both the fiver and dog were gone.

I appreciate that, but there's no white noise generator that could effectively block the noise of doors being slammed so hard that the walls of my room literally shake.

I've stayed at some pretty nice Motel 6 and Super 8 so your low life comment is way too generalized and rude

No, they are cheap. You get in the 250 a night you will eliminate most, if not all the complaints heís made.

took me a few yrs. to learn that.

I spent 10 years traveling all over the USA staying in Marriott Residence Inns. Oh the stories I could tell!

Prom night is always entertaining from loud music, singing, yelling, nude or nearly nude "kids" running up and down the hallways laughing loudly (hard to get any work done on those nights!). Anytime a sports championship game is being televised yelling can be heard for floors. I always requested the top floor so I wouldn't hear heals clunking all around over my head.

Several times inebriated souls would come knocking on my door demanding to be let into "their room". Smoke alarms going off, fire alarms sounding (it's very interesting to see what others wear to bed when fire alarms are going off in the middle of the night and everyone is gathering outside).

Bed bugs. Pet poop. Spoiled food under the bed. Theft of my medications. Ex-boyfriends shouting at a employee. etc. etc.

The pool areas and exercise rooms were always places to be entertained!

No wonder I bought a motorhome to travel and stay in!!!!!!

I find that life is simpler and lower stress when I don't get offended on other people's behalf.

Bed bugs and other disgusting stuff is the reason we bought a MH. If you bring bedbugs home it can be a real nighmare.
