How do you deal with loud noise?

I have to deal with very loud room mates. How do you deal with it? And if you use ear plugs which brand do you use because my rubber ear plugs does nothing to dampen the sound.

I forgot to add: which store can you buy them at?

I use Mack's soft foam earplugs. They work like a charm!!

I can only find them at Publix. Cost something like $2.88 a box.

Stay away from Flents because they don't work worth a shit. Complete waste of money if you buy those.

Right now I'm using them while I sleep because those damn northern mocking birds have started up again. Fucking males make a racquet a 4:00 am because they're trying to attract a mate.

But, with my Mack's, I sleep just fine.

I also used them when I had to study in the library, because I'm definitely a gal who needs my peace and quiet.

I pull my legs down even closer to my head so that I can use my knees to cover my ears, all to drown out my sexual screaming.

If you're dealing with constant noise you need to get fitted for custom ones.

I don't deal with noise, I call the police.

I rented a unit that had very creaky floors. When the person above me would get up in the middle of the night I would be up as well. I moved out but the floors in my new place aren't much better except the people above me don't get up every couple of hours.

I tried different kinds but 3M Tekk orange disposable earplugs from Home Depot seem to work the best for me.

Roommates? What are you 21? If you're over 21 you should be on your own.

Wax ear plugs work better than foam.

If earplugs don't block out whatever they're doing, you can assume they're TRYING to harrass you.

It's time to find another situation.
