Cutting grass at 8:30 on Sunday morning?
Thanksforthat123 · 09/05/2021 08:31
As a one off, because we have a bouncy castle coming, we are cutting the grass at 8:30 on a Sunday morning. Next door have just shouted out of their window. 🙈
AIBU? It’s not something we have ever done before or plan to repeat. I kind of think one off things you suck it up a bit? Same as the odd occasion their dog is barking outside my bedroom window at 11pm.
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

Round here, 8:30 would be considered late! I've heard someone hammering something, a jetwash and a lawnmower already.
It's been pissing it down since bank holiday Monday so I think people are taking advantage of the break in the rain.
I'd not worry about it, especially because it's not what you do every single Sunday.

The problem is that you say it's a one off, but how does your neighbour know that? They may think you plan to mow every Sunday at 8:30. I think if it was totally necessary (and I don't think it is tbh) you should have ore-warned them. Sunday is my only chance for any kind of lay in so very precious to me

Well the neighbour will know it’s a one off if it hasn’t happened regularly before surely

Otherwise I’d say 9am for noise in the garden on Saturday, 10 on Sunday. They are entitled to a sleep in..
Everyone’s lives are diff, I’m up at 6am with my eldest, if she’s at nursery I nap when my baby naps: doesn’t mean I kick off at noise at 10am because I’m napping. Equally some people work nights and wkends- 8.30am is not ridiculously early.
