When you’re trying to get to sleep every little noise sounds much louder than it actually is. To the point at which you might start to think you’re going mad.
This video shows how that feels, with two people (actually the same dude playing both parts) arguing over the noise levels.
This is funny because it’s true. I rarely have trouble sleeping, but I’ve lived with people for whom the slightest noise keeps them awake.
This strange phenomenon, and it is a strange phenomenon, is annoying for both parties. Although the person trying to get to sleep suffers more than the other.
