1. The ice cream truck haunts our neighborhood. I have seen it just parked across the street with the music playing. I have seen it make U-turns back and forth along our street over and over again. I know exactly where the tune stops and restarts every time.
2. Our upstairs neighbors sometimes like to have fun late at night. This includes loud laughter, things being dropped, and even some good arguments.
3. The train tracks are very close to our apartment. The train has a lovely schedule that includes trips past our neighborhood at around 11 pm and 4 am or so. As it passes, the train blows its horn repeatedly, holding it down each time for durations of 1 - 5 seconds. Sometimes it seems like it is parked there, honking. Sometimes it seems like there are two trains having a honking conversation. I'm pretty sure the engineer is just grumpy and wants the rest of us to be awake with him!
4. We recently got our window swamp cooler winterized. They covered it with a tarp. At 5 in the morning, the sprinklers come on right outside our basement level window.... Tk tk tk tk THUD THUD THUD THUD...... tk tk tk tk THUD THUD THUD THUD......
