...Some of us would like to enjoy the birdsong and do a bit of quiet reading.

We've had somebody with a chainsaw and strimmer going at it most of the day. So noisy!

This is the kind of thing that can turn a normal, peace-loving person into a crazed axe-murderer, isn't it?

My neighbours have had a Sade song playing on a loop for the last 2 hours with patio doors wide open....arrrggghhh!

Yes neighbours teenagers did this for hours the other night - I hate it!

I hate this too. Totally inconsiderate. They wouldn't like it if someone else drowned out their music with something else.. Noise pollution.

I hate this too. Especially when its shite rap music with vile lyrics that my DC don't need to hear regardless of the fact they may be too young to understand. Its so frustrating and there is nowt you can do about it without causing rifts.

A kitchen radio, playing something naice and on low volume I could deal with.

I don't put on music myself if I am in the garden. I can't use headphones because I won't hear the DC if they want something.

Go and talk to them about it. People always think they're going to react horribly but its not always the case. Mine just turned it down as I asked and apologised.

My neighbours' 17 and 18 year old girls were having a PA music-based argument last year. "I can still hear get music Kelly, turn it up!"

This was made even better by the act that the attached neighbour was playing her music through the TV surround system in the living room. Turned up nice and loud so you could hear it in the garden. You couldn't find a quiet spot anywhere.

It's like that here. During the week there's 'music' and noise from a car spraying place at the back of the house, on the weekends it's the farking neighbours or their farking dog/screaming child. I just wish they would STFU!

There have been multiple dog rows going on between gardens surrounding ours all day! I know dogs bark, but why leave them attacking each other for hours through the fence making that horrible noise! I've come indoors and shut the back windows in the end as it was driving me mad.

Can't wait to move on 1st August, the new area seems so peaceful, fingers crossed that is the reality when we get there.

You just have to accept it. It's part of humanity. If you want birdsong and silence then move out of the suburbs.

FloozeyLoozey Sun 08-Jun-14 16:04:17

Noise from neighbours during day time hours is just part of living in a community. Remote rural housing is the only to guarantee silence. I like the sounds of people, I would find silence quite eerie.

LadySybilLikesCake Sun 08-Jun-14 16:04:17

Pissing dogs. There's one which barks on and off throughout the day, starting at 7am. Every day is the same. It's like groundhog day.

LadySybilLikesCake Sun 08-Jun-14 16:05:51

There should be a balance. 50/50. Why should you inflict your shitty music on your neighbours, you know? If people had a little more consideration for others then everyone would be happy.

misstiredbuthappy Sun 08-Jun-14 16:13:22

My neighbours are like that as soon as the suns out they turn their music up full blast I wouldnt mind but their polish so cant understand a bloody word of it.

Itget my own back by letting dc watch her telly loud in her bedroom early the next morning, that just so happens to be right next to theirs with a paper thin wall dividing grin

expatinscotland Sun 08-Jun-14 16:15:17

Even worse when you go to a beauty spot or park and some wanker turns up the trashy music in their car.

LadySybilLikesCake Sun 08-Jun-14 16:16:39

Oh, that's crap, expat! angry

I like a bit of music whilst sunbathing.

It is summer after all.

I can't win sad
I'm in an apartment at the minute on the top floor and have below me playing music - it's foreign (Russian I think) so don't know what it's saying, next door I've a guy playing guitar and singing. Badly. In English.
In the block to my left I can hear what sounds like Celine Dion. To my right I can hear the radio and someone blasting foreign hip hop confused Oh and magpies chattering to each other on the roof above my head.
It's 35 degree's today so everyone's got their apartment doors open.

When I'm my garden in the UK, my neighbour has a shed/music studio in his garden - although he's tried to sound proof, it hasn't bloody worked. Then just as you think you'll get a little peace come 5/6 pm the other neighbour comes home from work and sits outside teaching himself to play guitar.

I agree Expat - that is so bloody annoying too.

MacenroeTheBoatAshore Sun 08-Jun-14 16:31:04

theres always a Mrs Winnedago with the 'move somewhere quiet answer isn't there?

yes, Im sure we would if we could, if we had the means/finances to. some of us don't have much choice where we live FFS,

and I HATE the fact as soon as the sun makes the slightest appearance, there they all go, music is for PERSONAL use, if you want to 'share' it, go to a bloody gig or nightclub!

LadySybilLikesCake Sun 08-Jun-14 16:36:35

"I like a bit of music whilst sunbathing" < this is exactly what headphones are made for wink

everlong Sun 08-Jun-14 16:38:45

Not when I'm sat with DH listening to something LadySybill they're not wink

I have a thing about this too I am more chilled than I used to be but basically I think it's really selfish to impose your music on your neighbours. i find it even worse if I can only hear the beat and not the song.

I live in central London but am incredibly lucky in this street that the neighbours are really considerate.
