  1. Keep Your Apartment Clean- Whatever critters you allow in your apartment will find their way to your neighbor’s apartment
  2. If You Have A Home Theater System, Please Don’t Set The Subwoofer Bass On 10
  3. If You Live On Any Floor Other Than The First, Please Don’t Wait Until Midnight To Start Your Jumping Jack Exercises
  4. If Some Of Your Neighbor’s Mail Get Placed In Your Box By Mistake, Please Feel Free To Let Them Know Or Leave It At Their Door
  5. Please Set A Cut Off Time For Your Small Kids To Be Running Around Screaming And Having Fun
  6. Be Mindful Of Other People’s Car Doors When You Park And Open Yours- No one wants to come out to their car and see dings and dents in their doors
  7. After Midnight, Please Take Your Conversations Inside Your Apartment- No one cares to hear your loud conversations late at night
  8. If Possible, Please Try To Minimize The Days You Are Frying Foods And Cooking With Strong Spices- Smells travel, and no one wants their apartment smelling like what you cooked for dinner every day
  9. Please Don’t Drop Your Cigarettes, Blunts, Or Trash outside on the ground
  10. Respect Your Neighbor’s Privacy- Do not be a peeper or the nosey neighbor who stays in everyone’s business

If you have lived in an apartment before, hopefully you already understand and follow some of the suggestions above. If you are moving into your first apartment, feel free to print off this list and stick it on your refrigerator. Your neighbors will appreciate it!
