Okay, so I am writing this to vent, but also because I need some advice. How does one handle something like this? I don't want to confront them and make it worse and it just feels kind of awkward to talk to someone I really don't know about their bathing habits. HELP!!!

As most of you know, we have only lived here for a few months. We are renting a duplex and there are a lot of really good things about where we live. I'll tell you about those later, when I think of some. I'm sure you know that renting anywhere has it's ups and downs. We truly are blessed to have found so many decent places to live from out of state. However, I have a problem here. As I said, we live in a duplex so we share all the walls on one half of the house. I have met our neighbors: a man and his two teenage daughters. well, I met him once and once his oldest daughter borrowed my phone because she locked herself out of the house. They are relatively quiet and seem nice. Here's the problem- loud bathing. That's right, nearly every morning between FOUR and FIVE THIRTY someone next door is taking an incredibly loud, squeaky bath. I know that I am a light sleeper but who does this?! Sometimes they even wake up Nathan, and that's crossing the line. I would describe the sounds I am woken up to as a drunk elephant trying to do ballet in a bathtub. No one needs to drop the shampoo bottle 15 hundred times!
