To think that asking people to be quiet in the early hours does not mean "you were also responsible for some of the noise"

people were talking outside my house last night, (well early hours, 530 am), I put a request on the local facebook page,

"Not selling related but want to get a message to the people of XXXX

If your children came home in the early hours this morning please ask them if they were asked to not be so noisy on their walk home
More than once we were woken up last night by people hanging around near XXXX road and XXX road.

There were 5 older teens and lady with the dog standing there chatting before 6am... you were loud

It's hard enough to sleep in this weather without people having a full on conversation for a prolonged time

Please remind anyone who would be returning late night/early morning to think about the people living here, I know it's hard to gauge when you've had a drink, but if you keep moving instead if standing that would be a great help"

I have been told that "but by calling out of the window you were also responsible for some of the noise"

I asked them if they realised it was ten to 6, "yes we do" and then i said "you're being quite loud"

that was it....

YANBU at all. But I have come to realise people are dickheads and don't give a rat's arse about anyone else and that's about all there is to it.

Ha, I like your style re red dye, pig bloods will be too thick. Did you ever see the film Carrie per chance ?

They are inconsiderate prats YANBU

Two seconds shouting out for someone to be quiet is very minor compared to the twats chatting endlessly. And hopefully your actions ended the loud chatting

I would totally use a super soaker!!

Arsey twats. Like the manager of the Waitrose I live opposite - they started doing building works at 10.30 last night. I went to complain and again this morning and he told me that the building works were slowed down by the fact that I'd rung to complain. FFS.

But three is right. Some people are just inconsiderate and/or thick. And there ain't nothing you can do about those people so you just need to recognise them for the idiots they are and carry on, feeling tired but superior grin

ya so nbu
I've told this tale on here before but a few years ago lad across the road (mate of ds') got himself a Girlfriend.
Every night from midnight until one ish they would sit in the car being teenagers but with the engine running and the radio blaring. After listening to this until half two in the morning one day I snapped and sent the following via Facebook :

"Dave (not his real name ), love might be blind but it isn't deaf. A little consideration for your neighbours would be good "

Dave went rather red the next time I saw him and silence was restored grin

I've got a few archery bows up for grabs if you wish to play target practice with noisy people in your street!

If they hadn't woken you up, you wouldn't have been awake to call out of the window confused

Where I used to live there was an alley way at the bottom of my small garden. At around 4.30 one morning I was woken up by 3 people having a very loud and giggly conversation, whilst standing in the alley way.

I was fuming and was ready to shout out of the window but it would seem that The Good Lord Himself was worried that I would go out and commit murder because just then it started to rain, proper heavy bouncing it down rain so the 3 yappy arses ran shrieking.

I got back into bed with a smile on my face hoping they were looking like drowned rats.

I was camping the other night.
A young pair of supermodel types pitched up at 10.40, 2 foot away from me and my 7 year old, cracked open a bottle of fizz and had a lengthy picnic, then shagged, loudly ALL night.

I had a groop of yoofs rock up on the communal gardens of my flat earlier this week. There's been a loud commotion in the park further down the road and I suspect these were the group ousted by the "harder" group.

So they sit in the garden and play music. So far, no problem. They're not hurting anyone. And then the music gets louder and they're drinking (and they're only about 15!) and then comes the weed and the volume increase and the shouting and roughhousing and swearing

My downstairs neighbour text me asking if I thought she should ring the police because she was afraid to open her window.

Fuck only knows what possessed me but I stormed down there asked then what the holy hell they thought they were playing at. I swear to god I heard something which sounded like a "sorry missus Patterson grin" and then I stood over them whilst they cleared away their mess and then asked them to wave and smile nicely to my fearful neighbour!

Having worked in some pretty "dangerous" schools, da Home Counties massives are a joke!!!

Sounds like he has a toddler at home grin

"If you weren't thrashing around and complaining so much about getting your nappy changed we'd have been done a long time ago"

The logic doesn't work on them, sadly.
