To be pissed off that our neighbour is mowing the lawn right now at 9pm?

Kids have just been woken up, he started about 15mins ago, currently doing hos section of the communal green space outside, I'm guessing he's then going to move on to his front and back gardens. It's a petrol one too so effing noisy!

Well, if he's been at work all day, when else would he do it? And it would have been pretty hot to have been mowing earlier anyway.

That's what I thought clam

You can be annoyed but he is not really doing anything wrong

IUseAnyName Wed 01-Jul-15 21:23:46

Okay, so aibu!.... Shall I ask him to come round afterwards to put my tired hot grumpy kids to bed, who struggled in the 1st place due to the heat?

IUseAnyName Wed 01-Jul-15 21:24:12

He's retired.

No, YANBU. 9pm is too late to be mowing the lawn. It won't matter if it has to wait until the weekend.

Pipbin Wed 01-Jul-15 21:24:17

Sorry but I don't think that's too late really.
I wouldn't do it myself but I wouldn't be too annoyed. It'll only last so long unless you live at Sandringham.

I don't think 9pm is late enough to complain.

Bean74 Wed 01-Jul-15 21:25:01

Mine have just started a bonfire hmm

IssyStark Wed 01-Jul-15 21:25:05

And with your follow up, you are definitely, definitely not BU

It might be annoying but it's not unreasonable.

op I don't think yabu. I'd say 7.30 is a cut off for noisy stuff if you have young children living nearby.

Squeegle Wed 01-Jul-15 21:25:45

It's annoying but not the end of the world. First world problem.

98% of stuff on mumsnet aibu is a 1st world problem confused

So when is a reasonable time to stop?

annielouise Wed 01-Jul-15 21:28:04

I think it's anti-social. People are putting kids to bed and settling down to watch TV. Who mows the lawn at 9pm! I'd think 8pm too late. YANBU

alltoomuchrightnow Wed 01-Jul-15 21:29:33

yabu. def not late. he was almost certainly waiting for it to be cooler

AnyoneForTennis Wed 01-Jul-15 21:29:59

It's still light, as hot as it was at lunchtime and kids are still out playing here. The world does not stop at 7.30

WorraLiberty Wed 01-Jul-15 21:30:26

I agree it's annoying but not completely unreasonable. It would have been far too hot to do it earlier on.

Kids are resilient. They do get used to summer noises which is a good thing really, as they'll spend the rest of their lives having to do that.

msgrinch Wed 01-Jul-15 21:31:24

yabu, it's been too hot until now to do it.

GinUpGirl Wed 01-Jul-15 21:32:06

Scarlett I don't even get in until 7:30 most nights. Gotta make use of a dry evening when mowing the grass.

Twodogsandahooch Wed 01-Jul-15 21:32:13

My 2 year old is still awake. I'm more pissed off about that

IUseAnyName Wed 01-Jul-15 21:32:35

Yes a bonfire is worse! So yes it could be worse for me, he could be burning stuff, or I could be living in a country fraught with war.... Thank you for putting my aibu in to perspective, and remind me to mention your comment squeeglyon every aibu i read!

IUseAnyName Wed 01-Jul-15 21:34:24

Okay, so aibu. Still pissed off though :/.... I walked up a mountain in work today, that's much hotter than mowing the lawn.
