Dear Curbed SF,

I'm hoping that your readers can help me out with the following dilemma: I just moved into a second floor apartment in an Inner Richmond duplex. Both units have hardwood floors; otherwise, the place seems to have been constructed of paper and wheat paste. Here's the problem: my neighbor below, who has lived in the building for years, insists that she can barely function due to the overhead noise. This is ludicrous, as I live alone, remove my shoes upon entering, don't jump rope— you see where I'm going with this. She's now taken to accosting me on a near-daily basis, often chasing me down on my way into the building. I've put down rugs to no avail. How am I to deal with this auditory prodigy and, more importantly, how am I ever going to bring home the action without this woman getting up in my business?
