Posted:Today I got a warning from warden of my flat that there has been excessive complaints from the people below me of the loud bangs on the floor coming from my room. Which could be from juggling but is mainly due to my habit of not being able to wait till I get to work and start flairing in my room, I try my best to do it above my bed but drops happen and bounce off things (broke my laptop screen the other day frown ).



So anyway Ive been told now that if there is further complaints 'further action will be taken' which I guess means no flairing in my room anymore frown damn! Im gonna have to go to the parks around here to do it which is annoying. Granted its my fault anyway, I have a habit of flairing at 3am when I come home after a really shift. Annoyingly my floor makes a really loud noise too when something falls on it. Grumble grumble

Posted:TBH, I'm surprised that nothing's been said sooner! I've heard the loud noise your floor makes when I drop just a juggling ball on it, and they're nowhere near as hard as a flair bottle!!

My suggestion is cover your floor with things like mattresses and cushions. I know they're not the best surfaces to juggle on because they're all squishy and it's slightly harder to balance, but hey, It's better than not at all, and at least they will stop the really loud bangs.

Is it just the guy immediately below you, or the whole floor below you? If it's just the guy below, do it in the corridor, or even the other end of the corridor...

Or speak to them about it. be apologetic, and see if you can't come to some sort of arrangement. I'd be pissed off at someone banging around in the early hours of the morning while I was trying to sleep... And when I'm working, I like silence so that I don't get distracted. The guy below me doesn't listen to the untold times I've told him to turn his music down, though... it's still loud as hell...

If you were on a lower floor, then there would be no-one below you to complain about it... wink

Good luck getting this sorted, Dude. Twould be a shame for you to stop flairing and stuff in your room... Although, you know you're always welcome round mine for a session... smile

Such as sleeping!

The tutor below me hasn;t complained before, but t'other day I was practicing and I heard banging from on the floor, their roof, to tell me to stop. Let's hope they don't fine me - they're fine happy in this hall. :\

If you were dropping stuff on my roof at 3AM I'd be grumpy too. I wake up at 6am and am quite fussy about my sleep.

That's one of the bummers about living in a city... you do have to be aware of others. But you get to benefit from having others around you too at other times.

Posted:Flair - the best way to describe it really is 'Performance Bartending', but the most common association I suppose is your typical bottle and shaker cocktail spinning and bottle manipulation to serve a customer with a beverage in an interesting way. Much like this chap

Or as much as I hate to do it, the Flair scene was made most famous by Tom Cruise in the film Cocktail

'Flare/flair' is the art of juggling behind a bar. quite fun to do as well ubbrollsmile

I used to get shouted at quite a lot for doing flare, but that was whilst i was behind a bar and i got shouted at for braking glasses rolleyes.

i agree with the comments above, find something else to do at 3 am when you get home from work.

one question, where you the guy with the flair bottles at the last manchester meet Will? If so i remember dropping your mixer a couple of times as well as hitting Terri with it redface

Posted:no garden, and the roof is inaccessable to all but spiderman, its a 10 min trip now to where i go, still, better than not flairing.

And yes steaks at the last manc meet I did have a few bottles and shakers with me, i know someone borrowed them at one point so if it was me you were seeing flairing then I had baggy green combats on and a beanie

I borrowed your mixer whilst Tobi had one of your bottles smile

and Joe's right, he looked very swish indeed.
