gopher321: Tell her to visit a sleep clinic for crissakes


Seriously, strongly encourage her to get tested for apnea.

If she's coming by herself, tell her the reason she's alone is because she snores loud enough to wake the dead and fark off to a hotel.

If she's bringing an SO, ask the SO how the fark they deal with it, then still send them to a hotel.

I snore like an asthmatic pig, but if my siblings didn't welcome me to their homes on the rare occasions that I visit, I might be slightly miffed.

Keyword is "rare".
Now add to it "short visits" and you should be fine.

/also as mentioned above, get checked, you might feel like you got a new lease on life if your sleep is improved

Tell her if she snores in your home you are going to record her and post it to youtube or the like.

It's your sister.  You've hurt her feelings more in the past than "you snore loudly, I can't stand it."

Thread over, somebody get the lights on the way out.

FTFA: At our parents' house, you can hear them on any level of a three-story house with white-noise machines and ear plugs. They know this. He finds it funny. Neither will seek help.

He "finds it funny" that they keep entire households full of people awake with their awful goddamn nose-noises? F*ck these people and their "Why can't WE come to visit?" bullsh*t. Get a hotel you gross f*cking animals.

Relax. I have a CPAP machine, but I'm unlikely to take it with me. And yes J need to lose weight but, beer.

Leave a bunch of these in the spare bedroom:

Also, have ear plugs stationed in various locations throughout the house.

Oh, it's an open-concept flat.

....

Eh, the point still stands.

A good pillow might help. Hold it tightly over her face and she'll stop snoring
 
2021-06-22 9:45:08 AM  
Maybe stop sleeping with your sister?

The farking article says both her and her SO snore loudly.

So, if they came over to your house and woke you up with a airhorn every twenty minutes, you wouldn't have a problem?

She's your sister, just tell her...

1) Sister, Sister, He's Just A Plaything.  We Want To Make Him Stay Up All Night: Might I suggest a different white noise generator?

Seriously, though, sleep is a big deal, your place isn't set up for guests, so tell them to sleep elsewhere and when they inevitably complain, tell them to FRO.

2) I Hate Your Girlfriend, She's Such A Biatch: DTMFA.

3) I Used To Live In A Two-Room Apartment, Neighbors Knocking On My Walls: Since it wasn't late and isn't every day, tell them to STFU and MYOB.

4) Go Ahead With Your Own Life, Leave Me Alone: Tell them to STFU, MYOB and then GTHOI when they complain.

5) You Don't Lose When You Lose Fake Friends: Yep.  Right move.  Toxic person.  GTHOI.

1a) Up All Night II: I should mention that the neighbors probably wouldn't appreciate it either and could cause strife.  All the reason in the world to keep those people away when it's time to sleep.

2a) I Hate Your Girlfriend II: Good to get a second on DTMFA.  That's a big farking dealbreaker.

4a) It's My Life II: I understand why one might feel guilt, but the letter writer should not for making firm boundaries.

4b) It's My Life III: That's decent wisdom.

6) I Don't Think That's Actin' Right (Classic): This is a stupid thing to fight over.  Point that out and if he's still complaining, then I think it's time to DTMFA.

The loudest snorer I ever encountered was a woman I hooked up with on Craigslist casual encounters (remember those?). The morning after the second time we hooked up, once she discovered that I had moved from her bed to a couch two rooms over, I told her that she should probably see some kind of sleep specialist because her snoring was on par with a revving engine. By then, we had a good enough rapport that she was able to laugh about it, but also actually see a doctor.

Haven't seen her in years; I hope the ol' chainsaw is sleeping more soundly now.

Seriously, it shook the mattress.

My MIL's husband snores so loud that we make him sleep in the basement when they visit. The two of them have separate bedrooms for the same reason.

Traveling for work I stayed a night at their house in the room next to his. I would've been better off going to the client drunk I was so tired.

It seems like it would be awkward for you to leave her at your house while you went to sleep in a hotel
