They started at 2pm and still going strong now at 2am (I'm in France). They are outside, with music blaring, screams, etc. They don't often make much noise but 2-3 times a year they have these ridiculously long parties. 12 hours and no end in sight!

I thought the etiquette was to invite the NDN to the party so they can't get mad?

I think it is the NDN's DCs who are in their early twenties, we are in our mid-forties and have young DCs so I wouldn't expect an invite. I think there was a sporting event of some kind because there was cheering and chanting all day long along with the music.

I could do with some sleep now. It was 30 degrees here today and still hot but there is no chance of opening the windows. Even with the windows closed I can hear the bass and chanting.

Retaliate with loud music at 6am

Parties in my house sometimes go on for 3 or 4 days we would turn it down a bit if asked because we genuinely wouldn't realise if it was too loud or whatever.

Sorry. That's no help really is it

YABU. 3-4 times a year is hardly often. Different if it was every week but come on, let people have a party.

SuperLoveFuzz Fri 26-May-17 04:40:51

2-3 times* even less often! I think you can deal with a bit of noise once every 4-6 months

Where do people get the energy for a twelve hour-long party?

I played backgammon for three hours today and I felt like that was a stretch.

How thoughtful of you

FrancisCrawford Fri 26-May-17 05:35:54

There is "a bit of noise" and then there is continual noise going well outside acceptable limits. Which this is.

Regardless of the circumstances you don't engage in loud behaviour like this because it's selfish and inconsiderate.

If they were cutting their grass at 2am MN would be lining up to tell you how unreasonable you are.

As for Sally saying she "wouldn't realise that a 48 hour plus party would disturb people - don't you ever think about the consequences of your actions? It never crosses your mind that you are being the neighbour from hell?

They stopped at 5am, I had to be up at 7am and I am finding it difficult to deal with! I have never had a 15 hour party before in my life. When I got married we went to a specialist venue in the middle of nowhere and that's the only reason we kept going till 4am.

They are not the only ones either. Every village has a village party that lasts a few days. You can hear the ones that are near us all night long because of a weird habit of blasting very loud music outdoors. And by hear I mean being able to identify the songs and understand what the DJ says...for 3-4 nights.

Now is your chance to put loud music on yourself while they are trying to sleep.........

Fliptophead Fri 26-May-17 07:05:48

I'd send the kids around to say hello.. or borrow an egg and whilst 12 hours is massively overboard the top I'd probably forgive as it's not a regular occurrence.

nows the time to put loud music on and then go out for the morning

Justanothernameonthepage Fri 26-May-17 08:06:03

My colleague has neighbours like this. Coincidentally, he now feeds the birds outside from 6am the morning after (we live near the coast so lots of loud seagulls)

PhoenixJasmine Fri 26-May-17 08:12:38

Haven't you got lots of hoovering that needs doing OP, one of you could crack on with that whilst the other gets the lawn mown, or perhaps a spot of DIY? Make sure the kids don't get bored cooped up inside send them out in the garden to let off some steam.....of course they'll want to have their music on as well.....

originalbiglymavis Fri 26-May-17 08:15:14

we genuinely wouldn't realise if it was too loud yeah, right. Bet you neighbours loved you! We had braying party for a while. I loathed them.

ToastDemon Fri 26-May-17 08:32:14

SallyVate you "don't realise" that a multi-day party might be too loud?
Nonsense, you're just one of the people who make their neighbours' lives a total misery with their utter lack of consideration.

And I'd be extremely surprised if you managed a multi-day party without drugs.

HeyHoThereYouGo657 Fri 26-May-17 08:48:30

Glad I don't live next to Sally hmm

WHY do you need parties that go on for days ?!

Booboostwo Fri 26-May-17 11:22:46

Oh shit, the music is back on again!

DS has a fever and the other neighbour's dog was loose this morning and had a tiff with mine (mine were on lead, we were trying to get past), so I just give up.

FreeNiki Fri 26-May-17 12:45:47

call the police or hammer their door down

That's brilliant!grin

MaudLyn Fri 26-May-17 12:51:52

I don't know anyone that could party for that long without the help of drugs

Alfieisnoisy Fri 26-May-17 12:55:01

Just me then that thinks an invite to Sally's would be good fun.grin
