OMG: When your roommates have a loud birthday party on a Saturday night without letting you know while you're trying to study, then you start watching a movie and even their screaming and laughter cannot be tuned out. Fuck. Show some respect people, and yes i did tell them to turn it down.

  1. They were celebrating their birthday on a Saturday night... How could you even complain about this? It's not like this is happening all the time, on weeknights.

    1. Sure it's a Saturday night which is when a lot of people party, but if you are not the only one in the house, it's polite to let them know your plans, especially if it will be loud. At least let the roommates know so they can make other plans if they don't want to be around.

    2. Everyone is entitled to have a quiet environment and I think OP is justified to be upset.

  2. Go somewhere else to study. You complaining about this just makes me sad for you. Sorry you weren't invited.

  3. They partied from 9 to 2am, I'm not just going to walk to DC to study in the middle of the night during winter. Thank you 1a for clearing up what I was trying to emphasize - the fact that they decided to hold a loud event without letting me know. I could care less if I was not invited, or if they told me ahead of time I would have gladly wished the person a happy birthday.

    1. Yes I agree they weren't considerate. Many students have onerous workloads requiring them to study on weekend nights. It would have been easy to communicate plans of the party to members of the household so they could make alternate arrangements to study. Rather than just suddenly blast them out of the place, maybe waste a lot of the person's time getting to somewhere quiet.

    2. Yes, it certainly seems that you could care less. :^)

  4. If you rented your room from a proper landlord, you can complain to him. I know in residence at least they help with dealing with noisy neighbors.

  5. I usually agree with someone wanting a quiet environment, however this is silly. A Saturday night when it is someone's birthday is pretty standard stuff. Assuming you know your roommates minimally and venture out from your room to eat every so often, you would have known about any upcoming birthdays or parties, especially since people tend to get excited and talk about these things. And to be honest, you went from studying to watching a movie - go and spend time with people instead of moaning about people being noisy on a BIRTHDAY WEEKEND.

  6. I'm a really quiet introverted person so I know I would've been annoyed with the roommate too. However I agree with everyone that Saturday night is a normal night to party, especially when it's the person's birthday. I would never have expected roommates to tell me in advance that they were going to have people over back when I lived in Waterloo. (It would have been really nice, but not necessary in my opinion)

    If you want a guaranteed quiet place to study on a Saturday night, you'll have to suck it up and go to the library. (Or go to a friend's house)

  9. Even during the planning stages of this birthday party, have it not occurred to you to tell them then? I'm sure it's not like they suddenly decided to blast music and invite like 30 people over without you noticing and saying something earlier. I'm sure when they were planning this, you could have mentioned you were studying as well. They are wrong for not saying something, but it's also good to give people heads up as well. Don't be a hypocrite is all i'm saying.
