- Just had row with next door neighbour
No offence, but this – “I stupidly in the heat of the moment said I wouldn’t put a child in a car in this heat”, this – “My husband plays drums”, this – “a barbecue which of course blows the smoke into our garden” and this – “unbroken nights sleep with their baby crying” make me think living next door to you guys isn’t exactly paradise…Posted 4 years agoJunkyardMember
make me think living next door to you guys isn’t exactly paradise…
Leave it they are both lovely
That is why I rarely start a thread you often end up the victim of someone elses need to have a pop pointlessly

Gosh you’ve got a very active imagination.Posted 4 years agoFlaperonSubscriber
Go round with some wine or something and nip it. No point letting tension grow and get out of control. Either that or have them….taken care of.
Tried that after falling out with my neighbours. They took the wine, slammed the door in my face, and haven’t spoken a word since. Uneasy truce, I think.Posted 4 years agotheflatboyMember
I’m really not having a pop, but the bit about the baby crying was the tipping point, as the parent of an 11-month old. Not really much you can do about crying babies – coincidentally our neighbour above plays the drums. We never mention it, he doesn’t seem bothered about the crying baby. Give and take, and all that.
We also have barbecues…Posted 4 years agoDugganMember
Lets be honest a lot of the points raised in the OP seem pretty academic and irrelevant to the issue. I take the OP’s point about car fumes filling the bedroom though as I suppose that could be a bit annoying.
Kayak23 is totally right imo and I would just go round and apologise and avoid the inevitable years of acrimony with a ten minute chat.
Regardless of whether you’re right or wrong it will be for the best in the long run, maybe just make up some bullshit about some other stressful situation that tipped you over the edge or whatever.Posted 4 years agochewkwMember
“I stupidly in the heat of the moment said I wouldn’t put a child in a car in this heat”
Yes, that is stupid. Never talk about others’ little preciousssssss …
Let the child roast and boil until the fresh fall off like freshly roasted piglet. Then lick the tear off the parents cheeks for not taking your advice.
Alternatively, live and let live after all it’s summer …
My mate is a grumpy bloke but if he lives next door to me he would meet my mate Benelli M4 in the face. I told him that. 😆Posted 4 years agoJunkyardMember

You do not want to hear it and get a good nights sleep but you produced it so your problem – FOUR **** YEARS I HAD WITH MY ELDEST
Do you think your neighbours want to hear it?
Thankfully ours were deaf so it was a non issue but we did discuss it with them as we assumed it would be waking themPosted 4 years agonbtMemberbakes wrote:
just to clear things up, your neighbour’s toddler was sat in the car on the drive with the air con on keeping it cool because it was hot outside?
with the engine running and the windows open, usually. And it;s not to keep her cool, it’s the get her to sleep as “she sleeps better there”, it’s happpened all through winter too (although with the windows closed then)Posted 4 years agojfletchMember

That is twaddle – There is shit loads you can do about crying babies.
Step 1 – Try to figure out why they are crying and fix it.Posted 4 years ago
Step 2 – If you aren’t able to fix it take the baby to the point of the house where it will least affect the neighboursedlongMember
edlong – there’s working class and there’s scumbags.
Do you have to be working class to smoke and leave your kid in a car?
No, so perhaps you can explain where the assumptions about liking 4 litre bottles of cider, or Lambrini, smoking meth, “being a bit chavvy” or looking like Harry Enfield characters come from? These are the kinds of comments that get made, aren’t they? That’s the thing though, in here it seems that people are more offended by someone “being a bit chavvy”. There’s more snobbery than concern about a child’s welfare in the thread I’m reading.Posted 4 years ago
