FFS! We have a 30ft garden, the dollop next door to me has just lit a bonfire on their patio right underneath DD bedroom. Ready to smash his face in!

MadamDeathstare Wed 25-May-16 20:17:59

Is it a bonfire, or an over enthusiastic barbeque?

MrsSpecter Wed 25-May-16 20:18:57

Bonfire right next to his house?? shock

LineyReborn Wed 25-May-16 20:19:56

Do you mean a brazier?

Anger management is what you need or yoga. Anything to calm you. Knock on his door calmly and explain to him that he is directing his bonfire under your dd bedroom.

coco1810 Wed 25-May-16 20:27:14

A fully fledged bonfire right next to the houses! I don't need anger management, I need a hose pipe!

MrsSpecter Wed 25-May-16 20:28:28

Surely thats really dangerous?? Contact fire department for advice?

You need to calm down! Yes I'd be v pissed off too - but really?? - "smash his face in"? Try to think of non violent reactions like an adult maybe?

You sound classy.
Perhaps he's had enough of your mouth and wants to smoke you out.

LineyReborn Wed 25-May-16 20:34:34

Where I live, we would knock on the door and ask them to put it out.

Is it just me or am I disturbed by this kind of language.? (Title and content).

I thought MN was a place you could come to when dealing with violence.... whether passive or aggressive. Partner, neighbour, random on the street going about your business.....

thank fuck I don't live next door to you, whatever the problem

Iflyaway Wed 25-May-16 20:40:14

Oh, and the "normal response" is to phone the local fire brigade... and ask their take on it. Because it could be a fire hazard.

coco1810 Wed 25-May-16 20:40:22

Wow! Out come the Keyboard warriors! The fact that I chooses to have a rant on NM rather than actually smashing his face in suggest that actually I am an adult and I do have class. How dare any stranger make those sort of assumptions?

Anyone with half a brain would guess that there is obviously an ongoing problem here. Which as they are council tenants, they are aware off and have been made aware of this situation right now.

FYI, my DD has been sitting her SATs and this idiot has kept her awake three nights out of five. Thanks for the advice and support ladies.

Can you not knock on their door, OP? I genuinely would.

Meowlster Wed 25-May-16 20:43:35

No, don't smash his face in, but invite eatshitderek 's sister round with her phone...

ItsJustPaint Wed 25-May-16 20:43:45

Nah... I think the OP is the obnoxious one here

CombineBananaFister Wed 25-May-16 20:44:27

I'd be pretty pissed off too as it sounds both stupid and dangerous. Add to the fact it doesn't seem necessary considering your garden length then its inconsiderate too.
Pop round and try to explain to him but don't smash any faces in wink just maybe some hard stares and a few choice words. he may not have realised, people are quite blinkered where their boundaries end.
We live ground floor apartments and everyone congregates there for their ciggies, right outside my open lounge window (not theirs) drives me batty until I pop my head out and remind them.

wolfwhistleme Wed 25-May-16 20:45:53

Whats NM?

BumWad Wed 25-May-16 20:47:00

YANBU

Rant away!

CombineBananaFister Wed 25-May-16 20:47:04

ahh, just seen the ongoing problem bit - so he's a selfish arsehole then, not just not thinking sad

wolfwhistleme Wed 25-May-16 20:47:28

Chuck a bucket of water out the window.. grin classy me

coco1810 Wed 25-May-16 20:48:06

EatShitDerek flowers Thank you! My beloved dog is sat on my feet preventing any smashing of faces. Have sent yet another email to the council sad. It's just awful to live next to people who lack consideration. He could have just lit it at the bottom of his garden or even waited until kids at school. It has been such a long week with exams and DD having disturbed sleep.

GrimmauldPlace Wed 25-May-16 20:48:47

YANBU. If you had said you were going to smash his face in, you would have been. You can want to all you like. But as I have reminded my DD multiple times today, you can't always get what you want.

How inconsiderate. Have you spoken to him though? Are there rules about bonfires to make sure they aren't antisocial? Sounds like a fire hazard to me. I hate bonfires anyway. Fire freaks me out.

Sounds dangerous.
