WIBU to stick an elastic band around it?

One of my neighbours has got a new wind chime
I was kept awake most of last night by eerie spooky tunes.
Can I send ds round under cover of darkness with an elastic band?
Or a roll of tape?
Just to shut the thing up for a bit
I have no desire to destroy the noisy thing (yet)
But the idea of some nice sticky tape is quite appealing.
It would have to be ds as he likes sneaking around in the dark and he would volunteer for this mission
Any other methods of silencing appreciated
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

Wind chimes in gardens that are not at least a mile from any type of civilisation are completely unreasonable. Clear sticky tape or glue to stop the bastards making a noise, without alerting the owners to the sabotage is an absolutely reasonable action on your part.

Are they the sort of neighbours you can speak to?The nice neighbours one side of me took theirs down after I explained how they kept me awake. If it had been the neighbours the other side of me I'd have bought an air rifle and used it for target practice.

For true middle of the night spookiness, in our old house, which was very distant from any neighbours, was woken up at 3am by a really deep voice outside saying “STOP, NOW”.
Sent DH out to the front door armed with golf club, but there was nobody around, and it was never repeated. He claimed I dreamed it, but I’m sure I didn’t.

I had a vivid dream like that a couple of days ago, woke up with a start, swearing that a deep voice had said Police Open Up in the middle of the night. I'm not even a criminal!
write For the love of God on the tape Op but this really made me laugh. How can anyone enjoy the sound of wind chimes. They're supposed to bring good luck but it's not very lucky to be kept awake all night is it.

That properly made me laugh out loud!
I will admit to being one of those pain in the arse neighbours with windchimes, but in my defence you cant hear them with the double glazing.
Well I cant hear them with my double glazing

Wind chimes where I live would be grounds for murder. It's windy at least 90 percent of the year. Even looking out into the garden now on this glorious spring morning, the sun is shining, the sky is a hazy blue - and the plants and shrubs are waving madly at me.
Yes, an elastic band should do the job. Or, failing that, some explosives ...
