Hmm well, new neighbours next door. They constantly feel the need to dump their rubbish bags down the alley between our houses when I've asked them not to (I use it to get my bike into and from the back yard). Then last night they let their bloody kids run allover our garden then let them scream at stupid volume until midnight. Thinking I might just shove the rubbish bags up their A*** next time. What you reckon?

Hmm

Might go for landmines instead. I'll put some hesco bastion barriers infront of the house first though. Don't want shrapnel coming through the windows!

Fight fire with fire

No one's going to help you.

Many years ago I lived next door to a young couple who had their music banging through the walls well into the early hours every weekend.

I pleaded with them, to no avail.

So then what I did was placed a speaker against my bedroom wall, which adjoined theirs, gaffer taped it to the wall, and boxed it in so as to keep noise down to a minimum in my place, and played loud classical music through it at 6am, which I'd worked out was when they went to bed after their heavy nights.

Boy they didn't like it when the shoe was on the other foot, but it did do the trick, eventually.

Unfortunately when you're dealing with ignorant selfish people, only responding with their mentality works.

Well I have a few mates coming down this weekend. Think there might be a few tunes going down my surround sound. Until about 6am!

scuffers.....

if someone is ignorant enough to do such things, as said, they are going to take your protestations as a challenge.


The council say you have to record all noise/anti-social activity for at least 4weeks before they will even investigate.....play it cool, this approach is my favourite..

well

it is antisocial behaviour so potentially the cops or council.


As for classical music - we went and played it loudly through a council estate to get revenge on the kids coming round our place and playing their.... thumping.

As for landmines, you can get training ones which use flour but you have to bury them a bit deeper than you might like. Perhaps filling a few of these with hot tar would help? And another few with feathers?

I personally enjoy the theory of "brown noise" also. Perhaps you could explore this as an alternative. I believe it was explored as a battlefield weapon as a battalion that has just all simultaneously shat itself tend to be a less effective fighting force.

Tried

I've tried the polite word, with both the fella and woman. The bloke just basically said he works nights so nothing to do with him, and the woman doesn't speak a word of english :S I tried talking to her and she just smiled at me then spoke a load of pashtun :doubt:
