Can’t stand your noisy neighbors for another second? Have we got an idea for you!
You see, a Xi’an resident surnamed Zhao was also having problems with his noisy upstairs neighbors recently. The family has a young boy and Zhao complained that all the jumping around the boy was doing was disturbing his rest. While he tried to go upstairs to talk to the family about the situation, nothing changed.
So, Zhao went online and bought a “building shaker” for 400 yuan, looking to give the noisy neighbors a taste of their own medicine. Powered by a motor, the machine is designed to continually thump against walls. At 8 p.m. last Friday night, Zhao switched the machine on and left his flat for the weekend.
With the constant thumping on the floor driving them insane, the neighbors went to the property management office, but found that there was nothing they could do to help them. The family even contacted the police who were unable to track Zhao down.
Finally, on Sunday afternoon with the machine thumping along for nearly two days straight, Zhao returned to his flat and officers were able to get him to turn the contraption off. It’s not clear if Zhao was punished for his act of revenge.
If you’re also looking to take vegenance upon some noisy neighbors, you can purchase one of these “building shakers” on Taobao.
