    Help? Poor foreigner being ganged up on by Japanese thug?

    OK here is the story.

    I live in an apartment with really thin walls. I watch a lot of movies/cricket, play a lot of music on my computer. I have only once got a complaint of being too loud.

    That was 3yrs ago when the polive dropped me a visit. FFS, couldn't the person have knocked on my door and told me to turn my music down in person? The policeman was almost apologising to me for the inconvenience.

    Fast forward 3yrs to tonight. I was just watching a movie in the background, not too loud, while talking to my gf. Then all of a sudden I hear a bang on the door. No knock/bang insues so I think its the wind. Then the next door neighbour guy starts making some noise.

    I joke to my gf that this guy is pissed at me. But tell her that it is highly unlikely as the sound isnt too loud. She tells me not to open the door if he comes to my door, as he might hit me. I, thinking that it is a joke, tell her that he will be worse for wear if he throws a punch at me.

    Anyways, 2mins later I get numerous bangs to the door followed by smashes against the wall from his side. Shock! WTF, is this guy ********? Is he a caveman? Has he heard of civility? I never thought it would be possible, surely if your next door neighbour is loud then you knock on his door and tell him so. No?

    Now I am pissed, what is wrong with this guy? Is it because I am a foreigner? He thinks "I donta speaka the language". FFS, isn't it worth a shot?

    Nah, he just acts like an imbred hillbilly and bangs away, hoping I get the message. And I sure did. I got the message that Japanese are ********. It isn't the first time that someone has gone to extreme methods (albeit 3yrs apart). But why not take the simple option of civility? If someone came to my door telling me that my music was too loud, then I would apologise and turn it down. Is civility too much to ask for these days?

    Oh, and the reason I didn't confront him was because he is a huge guy and seemed to be in an agro mood, and I thought it was highly unwise.

    My question to you is......
    Should I confront him tomorrow (when hopefully he is cooled down) and give him a good going over?
    Has this, or something similar, ever happened to you? And how did you handle it?

    I am really furious now, and can't think straight.

    Point taken.

    Heat of the moment. I am by no means racist. Can a mod change the title to "Help? Poor foreigner being ganged up on by Japanese thug"?

    Its just happens all the time with me. Because I am a white guy, people just assume that I don't speak Japanese. Come on, I speak better Japanese than you ffs.

    Yeah, thats what I am planning to do.

    Its crazy how I am just suppose to know what pisses him off. He has probably just ignored me for a couple of years or something. If only he was smart enought to realise a simple knock on the door and he wont have to ignore....

    Calm the **** down. IMO you are over-reacting. Some people are little too sensitive to noise and even the slightest noise can deprive them of sleep. Even if you feel the noise is okay, it may not be esp if you are watching a movie or a game. Firstly because Channels raise the volume during commercial breaks, and even in movies/games the sound automatically goes up in certain scenes.

    It has nothing to do with you being a Kiwi in Japan etc kind of stuff. Something like this happened with one of my room-mate(and a very close friend) back in 2001. My friend is a South Asian living in America.

    In the middle of the night he would suddenly pick up his cricket bat or tennis racket and start banging on one particular side of the wall. This went on for weeks and one day I finally asked him why he did that, he explained to me that the neighbor made too much noise and he couldn't sleep. I was shocked to hear this because I obviously never heard any such noise. In any case, I asked him if he ever talked to the neighbour about this, he said 'He is a big crazy white guy twice my size' and how he was afraid to talk to him. I asked him If I could go and talk to this 'guy'. My friend agreed but said he is going to keep the 911 call ready in case the 'Crazy American' (his words not mine) acted like one.

    In any case, I went to meet the 'white guy', he was really a giant, told him the problem, he said he worked from home during the night and at times gets up to make some coffee or food and doesn't make any noise apart from the noise that is generated from him walking inside his apartment and I believed him. He ceratinly didn't look/talk/act like what my friend had expected. He was also troubled by the fact that my friend banged at the wall and had gotten few notices from the apartment management because of the complains filed by my friend.


    In any case, I think you should cut down on the volume and should talk to the neighbour if he does it again. Your making a lot of assumptions and much of your anger (IMO) is because you feel he is doing it because you are a foreigner.
