Terribad neighbours.

By Dilandach 14 October 2012 39

Where I live has been relatively quiet. Apart from the odd person relieving me of the burden of a full tank of petrol. We had a neighbour that was troubling. Except for the odd screaming and banging in his house or eyeballing me, it wasn’t too much of an issue.

They moved out, we cheered and hoped that the next lot of people would be somewhat less of a hassle.

Oh how our hopes were dashed.

Ever since they’ve moved in, there are screaming matches at any time of the day or night. We usually dread friday and saturday nights due to the sub-human inhabitants getting tanked up on whatever it is they drink/smoke/snort. Now these screaming matches just aren’t slightly raised voices, they’re full on screaming, car window breaking, throwing items including garbage onto my front lawn, choking and last night while I was out on the varandah… pissing on my drive way. I gave a “what the fuck? seriously!” to no response. No doubt trying to get more of a reaction out of me for a reason to punch on with me.

Nearly every weekend the cops have been called, we’ve called once but obviously others around call as well.

As much as I’d like to reason with these people to grow the fuck up and deal with their issues without being a pain to everyone around them, I know that the knuckle draggers would rather take a swing than agree to knock it off. I’ve got two children under 6 who thankfully so far have slept through the worst of it but no doubt would absolutely be terrified of the screams of some chick and dude loving each other with their fists.

I have the phone number of the owner of the house. I’m not sure if I should pass that on to the realestate agent to take up with the owner or if there’s some other course of action I could take. Quiet, its all we want. What can I do?

What’s Your opinion?
