    Default Need sleep!

    Hi, I live in an apartment building, work nights and sleep days. My new neighbor likes a LOT of bass in his music and its making my bedroom walls vibrate. I tried to ask him to turn the bass down, but he doesn't speak a word of english, which is why I am here. I tried to cobble something together using online english-spanish dictionaries, but I think its giving me bass (the fish) instead of bass ( the opposite of treble).

    Basicly, I need something like:

    "I work nights and sleep during the day, could you please turn the bass down?"



    please and thankye

    You could say something like "Trabajo de noche y necesito dormir en el día. Le agardecería por favor bajar el volúmen de su música. Gracias

    Good luck. Hope you get some sleep

    I printed Veronica's translation and handed it to him as a note, since I'm sure I would butcher the pronunciation. It seems to have done the trick. Thanks guys.
