Damn Neighbors

 


Do you have disrespectful noisy neighbors? I do and I have had it...


I am telling you, nothing yanks my chain than lack of respect for others. We have lived across the street from each other for the last twelve years and have always been polite to each other. They are of Mexican heritage and they have a lot of friends and family, are a tight knit group and they like to have parties a lot.. No problem, that must be nice to have and I am glad they are so blessed but.......

EVERY single weekend I sit in my own home and I can not hear my own damn television unless I turn it way up, I am woken up if I am napping which I HAVE to do every day to relax the muscles in my throat so I can get some soup down when I wake up for nutrition and I do not sleep well at night because of hot flashes. I sleep in two hour increments. Every single weekend, ever single holiday the entire damn block has to listen to their loud booming ethnic music over a loud speaker, their karaoke, their soccer games etc. I am all for people having a good time but what about respect for those around you? They also know Linda and Bill and were at one time pretty good friends with them that is until, Linda became sick and then they haven't bothered with them but they know Linda is in her older years and noise like this isn't exactly good for her. Think they care? Obviously not but they sure did like her when they would walk into her home and use her washing machine and dryer whenever they wanted or feed their kids out of her kitchen whenever they wanted etc..

They never give one thought to the neighbors around them that maybe we don't want to spend every weekend and holiday listening to their stuff.. Nope not one thought...So I have decided tomorrow I will walk over there and try and have a talk with the husband and if that doesn't help then I start calling the sheriff's office. I don't like being at odds with any of my neighbors because we all have to live together on the same street but when you don't have an ounce of consideration or respect for those around you, and if and when we speak you still don't get it then I will get the law involved because you have given me no choice.

So tell me do you have have noisy inconsiderate neighbors? And if so, how do you deal with them?

  2. I can totally relate. Neighbors can do what they want, but when it gets to the point where their life is infringing on their neighbors lives, it's wrong and rude. I don't want to live my neighbors lives. I really don't know what you can do. I think going and talking to them, just so you can say, yes, you tried is good. Then start putting in noise complaints with authorities. Do they own or rent? if they rent, complain to their landlord, too.

    1. They own...we've been neighbors for I guess 10 yrs or so.. Thank you for the advice, I'm going to follow it

  3. From what I have learned when dealing with difficult people is to skip over the being polite part of giving them a chance to straighten up because most times they will not straighten up to going straight to the law and let the law be the in between guy.

  4. Thank goodness I don't and never have had that problem, BUT! They fly by on the dirt road in front of my home, leaving a terrible dust episode - MANY times a day! I don't open doors or windows anymore since one family moved in down the road because they are local farmers and need to go to their barn very often. They don't even realize the problem for me and I just cannot approach them about it. I am not at all even a little bit - confrontational. Your situation is vert different and I have have no idea how it should be handled.

  5. I have noisy neighbors like that! Although, their parties have become fewer since the pandemic and not quite as loud. Were you able to talk to them?
