Afters years of parties and shouting rows my neighbour,whose girlfriend recently had a baby,has come round to roar at me for vacuuming my stairs. Its too loud and I should have some consideration for them. I told him to feck off. [grin
Love it. We've got the noisy neighbours from hell - three dogs that bark non-stop, mum who shrieks from morning till night, kids who shriek back and hold screaming competitions outside (yes really - who can scream loudest and longest) and practice drums until midnight. Years ago they banged furiously on the wall when DS2 was practicing his saxophone one afternoon after school .
Neighbours a couple of doors up had frequent loud parties before they had children but no one complained. Arrival of kids meant they became the noise police, kids now older so noisy parties once again.
I just did the nodding thing like I was agreeing and then smiled and said feck off. I have waited 6 years for this must get out more . I think hell neighbours should all be made to live beside each other.
I was planning on moving house as next door was having loud parties til the early hours etc. I was offered a house where next doors aunt lived so i caught her one day to ask what its like there. She was saying its not too bad, but you get these people who have no consideration for other people having to get up for work etc, and my neighbour is nodding away, saying yeah i know...some people. So i honestly believe people like this dont realise they are doing it.
I would just keep the hoover or a drill switched on while u put ur feet up and think of the nuisance that you are being.
My neighbour used to play their music loud during the night so i would put mine on when i got up in the morning. It eventually stopped the late night music. They once or twice had the cheek to complain in the middle of the afternoon about my loud music. I just smiled & closed the door. Now i can sleep at night and my music is played loud occasionally.
Oh yes, ours were the same but i knew by the time my DD was 18 that they would be older and quieter, how i love when she has parties or asks her friends round when she's home from uni, and just let them dare complain...
