After a while where he wasn't a nuisance, this damn shut-in upstairs neighbor is back at it, obviously hearing stuff in his head as he sits in his drunken, cabin fever mania. He stomps on the floor and yells "Knock it off!" or "STOOOOOOOP IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!!!". Meanwhile I'm downstairs reading or sleeping, and I'm sure he stomps even when I'm not home. I stay up late, and last night until after 3:00 a.m., but he doesn't sleep. At that time he had his TV on louder than usual and I think was even playing music for a short while, probably trying to be cute because he thinks I'm making noise, so he can. Then he stomped on the floor a few times before I dozed off.
I'm hesitant to confront him because it could turn violent if I tell him he's hallucinating. Plus I've never had an issue with him in person, so I don't want to upset the apple cart. I have screamed up at him to stop the stomping, but I'm not sure if he hears me as he's locked inside his own mania.
