THAT neighbor…

You guys, I have one of THOSE neighbors.

You know, that neighbor that seems to have no sense of time and makes noise at all hours of the day and night.

When he first moved in he got dogs. They bark at all hours of the day, all day long. Well, to be fair, just one of the dogs barks. The other one seems to be able to maintain control of his barking. I secretly think maybe the other dog gets annoyed at the barking like I do.

He put in a hot tub in the back yard. Great, I like hot tubs. But, he has friends over and then they laugh and talk and drink and smoke and seem to have no idea what time it is. So, late into the night there are people talking next door. Again, not a bad thing, but during the summer our windows are open and can hear everything, which means we are awake when he is awake.

Now, since it is summer and the days are longer, he thinks that he needs to use every daylight hour available to him. We live in the city, not on a farm, so there are more neighbors around than just me. Yet, this morning there was hammering, an air wrench, and a chainsaw…all before 6:30am. Again, our windows are open in the house, so we’re all up at the crack of dawn.

Dude, get a grip! Let’s have a little decency when it comes to noise pollution.

    Man…neighbors. Sometimes it seems they’ll be the death of you, right? Good luck!

      Thanks for stopping in. They can be, and I have had my share of bad ones. I try to be patient and hope that things change through subtle hints while we chat across the fence and in the street. He is young, so he will hopefully learn soon enough.
