at the park in the middle of our estate......and then grind said whistle into dust, and force feed it them via a funnel?

it's been constant 'peep, peep peeeeeep' for the past 4 evenings and i'm a bit bored of it now angry

thought so, i'll open the wine then

ah whistles, jumpers for goalposts, penny chews...

I'll see you the whistle and raise you a recorder. A little darling has been "playing" it constantly for 3 days, starting at 7.30 this morning. FFS.

Oh god the kid next door has a recorder and I want to grab it and shove it where the sun don't shine angry

I wouldn't mind if they taught him to play the fucking thing but all he does is blow it like a friggin whistle hmm

I hope it's stopped by now! Last summer there was some little dipshit blowing a vuvuzela all afternoon. By 6pm I snapped and bellowed
"Would you SHUT UP!!" into the ether (we live in a cul-de-sac). The noise stopped shortly afterwards. grin

My sister had a recorder and she would fervently play it. I still shudder at the memory because she would occasionally get the notes right but not the timing, so my favourite songs would be mangled because every note was the same length and she didn't realise it should be any other way angry

I would like to ban recorders.

Drums and whistles are usually bought by GPs. I have put a stop to this by insisting that such things should remain at their house. Interestingly, they haven't thought that the DC should have anything noisy for years now.

We evicted tenants because they played the vuvuzela throughout any and all sports games showing on the TV every weekend. The body corporate emailed us and told us people were complaining... their lease was up for renewal, and we didn't renew.

Something for people (who think 'any noise is okay noise'... especially if made by your precious child, and b*ggar anyone else), to think about.

I'm not entirely convinced by this "I don't mind happy noise" argument either; if it's incredibly high pitched, shrill screaming, I don't fucking care whether it's happy or sad; it still feels like my head will explode.

YANBU. Grind up and force feed away. grin

My parents thought it funny to buy my already noisy children loud toys such as whistles and drums. I thought it was funny to insist that these remained at Grandma and Grandpa's house. There was no way a recorder was ever going to get through my door either. Violin, I didn't mind, my elder one played it for a while and it wasn't too objectionable, but a recorder would have quickly been shoved up someone's ass hidden.

YANBU and can I add campsite owners who think it's a good idea to sell harmonicas in the camp shop? What on earth are they thinking?

I had to pretend the neighbours had complained about DDs fucking rip your own ears off annoying lovely cheap and cheerful beeping blaring bubble gun. Oh sorry love it's too loud for the baby next door...but mum it's only half 5...yes well babies go to sleep early [embarassed[

Oh god,i once went on a day out with my friend and she bought her DS a whistle.He proceeded to play it loudly on the train on the way home until i pointed out that if she didnt stop him someone was going to stick it where the sun dont shine-couldnt get over the fact that she thought it was ok to let him do that on a train full of people but then i bloody hate them ...
