Another neighbourly dispute, same neighbours that claimed our cat was teasing their dog, and the same neighbours who accused us of stealing blackberries off their bush that happened to grow over my fence.

Well if I hadn't thought they were ridiculous before, I definitely do now.

Woke up this morning to find a note through the door saying they have had a new piano delivered and due to space they were limited on places it could go indoors (not our problem) they are saying where they have placed it is under a window and their view from the piano is a large oak tree which is in our garden. Their problem is that they are saying the many birds nests that are in this tree are distracting and these wild birds are making too much noise therefore distracting them from the piano.

There isn't even a suggestion in the note of what they'd like us to do about it. Not that I would even consider taking any action towards the tree but FFS what on earth are they doing? They don't have a bloody leg to stand on??

Oh god. They sound a little cray

I'd flip the note over and write "lovely" and pop it back through their door.

Send a note back thanking them, as you had been wondering what the racket was that was frightening all the birds away smile

Tell them the birds have also complained to you that the piano playing is disrupting their choir practice.

pinkblink Wed 19-Oct-16 17:54:45

Send one back asking if they ever considered that the piano may be disturbing the birds hmm

Our landlord cut down a tree in our garden because the next door neighbour kept complaining that when birds flew out of the tree they pooped on his car. You couldn't make this stuff up...

grin completely bonkers

My neighbours are completely reasonable and boring, swap for a few days grinwink

Write your own note saying "your piano playing is disturbing our birds" ?

pensivepolly Wed 19-Oct-16 17:55:31

This is crazy talk. I'd just keep an eye out that they don't take a slingshot or similar to the nests in your tree (I'm only partly joking)

Buy them the sheet music for 'The Lark Ascending' grin

Also, entitled Bonkers. I'd be very tempted to put a note through complaining about the noise from the piano. Probably best to ignore though. I hope they can't reach the tree from their property?

Oh, also, sign then up to RSPB and Birdwatch. Theyll get endless leaflets through the door about bird watching and species preservation.

Cover each branch of the tree with loud, jangly wind chimes "to scare the birds away" wink. Claim you were only doing what you thought they were asking you to do if they complain.

Have you heard this ' piano' ....

YouTheCat Wed 19-Oct-16 17:57:11

Write a note suggesting that they need to move to a bigger house with a more suitable place for a piano.

Lilianna123 Wed 19-Oct-16 17:59:39

Yes dinosaur, they've been on it since 12pm! Bloody racket!

Just reminding you of the importance of bird feeders. Many many bird feeders.

For crying out loud, I suggest having some friends round and start having noisy moonlit, preferably "skyclad" coven meetings in your garden. I'd really give them something to complain about stupid fuckers.
My old neighbour came over to complain about our fence alling down and that it was preventing him selling his house. His house looked like a pig pen and his garden was completely overgrown, half the tiles off the roof.
I pointed out that our fence had fallen down because of the sheer weight of the ivy from his side growing against it. I pointed out that the rest of our garden was immaculate.
Thank God he has moved now and I have sensible neighbours.

They're barmy!grin

RaptorInaPorkPieHat Wed 19-Oct-16 18:01:33


They are fucking nuts grin

bumsexatthebingo Wed 19-Oct-16 18:02:41

Yes definitely send a note as if it is from the birds grin
You need to outcrazy them!

Loaferloveforyou Wed 19-Oct-16 18:04:08

Who the fuck has a piano outside?

Nowt as strange as folk

FrancisCrawford Wed 19-Oct-16 18:04:15

Liberally festoon the tree with bird feeders, fat balls etc

And solar fairy lights

And those suncatchers that twirl

That'll teach them to be silly buggers
