      Seriously? I would start looking for a new place if the landlady didn’t learn to keep it down. Earplugs? Give me a break.

    The original advice is the best, in my opinion. The landlady and her cousin may be so used to the noise they don’t realize how much it carries. If the situation doesn’t improve you may need to look for another place, as Jerry suggests. Don’t use the “I’ll need to move” card unless you really intend to move though, because the landlady might call your bluff.

    Earplugs don’t work for all noises. I regularly use them at night because I have some noisy upstairs neighbors. They keep out enough of the noise that I can get to sleep but they don’t block everything.
