  • Socially unacceptable complaints.
  • Schools have finished early and next doors kid has got a friend over for the afternoon and they appear to playing a game of ‘run up and down the stairs shouting’* for the last hour.

    If they were adults making that much noise with the TV or playing music or whatever I’d be straight round with a pitchfork and a flaming torch. But due to them being children I feel that the socially acceptable response is to bite my lip and just get more and more wound up until the point comes that i kick the cat**.

    So what else annoys or frustrates you but has you biting your lip due to social convention?

    * Why his mother hasn’t taken them to the park to play in the snow is beyond me.
    ** The cat is metaphorical, there is no living cat within kicking distance.

    it’s cold, why would the mother want to go out.

    To get away from those screaming kids

    [edit]
    Just thought, maybe she has gone out and that’s why they’re running around like ostriches on fire.

    I was a little ball of anarchy as a child, and most adults were kind enough to let me get on with it, so I do the same for the neighbours’ kids. It all averages out over a lifetime.

    Apparently you aren’t allowed to beep your horn at people in wheelchairs- even when they’re selfishly blocking the road!

    i used to play football in the alleyway between houses when i was young, the neighbour would often come out and tell me to “f*** off down the park and take that ball with you”.

    I rarely bite my lip in any situation. .. ………Maybe that’s why I have no friends ๐Ÿ™‚

    My old house had a neighbour like this,so the house I moved to next was detached,sorted….
    Of course,having 3 kids of my own the neighbours noisey kids were soon replaced with my own noisier kids,perhaps I should have stayed there for a few more years for a bit of payback……

    what about dead ones that you have previously kicked?

    Go outside in the snow yourself (and chill out)? ๐Ÿ˜†

    Completely agree with the OP tbh – if it was a barking dog making the noise instead of kids you wouldn’t be able to move in here for people moaning about it… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    When queuing in the Post Office in my valuable working lunch hour, social convention prevents me from grabbing hold of all the old folks dithering with pensions, cheques and other historical relics, shaking them and asking them why the frig they have to do all this at lunchtimes when they clearly had sod all to do all morning and indeed all afternoon…
    I like old people really. I expect I’ll be one before long… ๐Ÿ™‚

    kayak23 – my wife queued at the PO one Monday morning. Woman at the front had about 6 sacks of parcels she was processing.

    All the old people stood and complained for 20 minutes whilst this was going on. My wife spoke to one of them and he said;

    “She does this at 9am every Monday – she’s an ebay seller and all her sales finish on a Sunday night. It’s awful having to queue so long.”

    He seemed non-plussed when my wife suggested he waited until 10am to visit the post office on a Monday.

    In the same vein, why are pensioners allowed to go shopping at weekends? They’ve had all week to dither and block the car park and shop aisles.

    Take a cake around and get them to accept it first. Then complain gently and sympathise about how hard it is to control children.

    The cake should make it harder for them to be rotten to you and keep the kids quiet for a bit

    Apparently you aren’t allowed to beep your horn at people in wheelchairs- even when they’re selfishly blocking the road!

    but if they can’t hear you coming

    Hint – diabetic cake has less sugar in it

    As a kid I used to get the bus to college for 9am and I found it amazing the amount of pensioners who used to use the same bus and then expected we stood up to let them have a seat, 15 mins later and they could have had the whole bus to themselves!

    There’s a young family who lives in the flat above me. I suspect they are a family of elephants given the noise they make when walking around due to a wooden floor. They have a young daughter of between 2 and 4 (I guess) who gets lots of nightmares and wakes up in the middle of the night screaming. And loudly laughs a lot when playing/generally having fun.

    None of this aids my sleep pattern/peace and quiet. I suspect if I complained I would be punched in the face. I move in May.

    We live in a small end terrace.

    We have a full drum kit, two guitars, a bass, three keyboards, a violin and – of course – a significant number of amps / stage monitors.

    We can never ever complain about our neighbours being noisy!

    My neighbours were outside my house at 2am the other Monday morning making a dreadful noise.

    Fortunately I was up playing the drums so it didn’t really disturb me.

    @spchandler, I know, thats why I’m moving. It’s not that they are doing anything unreasonable (in fact, the laughter I mentioned is quite infectious, and often cheers me up.) It’s just that I didnt sign up for thundering footprints and a screaming kid, not their fault at all.

    edit, you probably werent directing your comment at me….

    Oh no, a whole hour of your day ruined by children laughing. Call the police. And don’t BS about what you would do if they were adults, you’d still, no doubt, come on here and moan.

    I can’t stand kids but even I wouldn’t begrudge them having some fun on a snow day off school

    kids make noise – fact.
    parents are oblivious to the noise/destruction/antics of their kids – fact.

    There is no point in even mentioning that the excessive noise is a little annoying etc as you become a demon child hating DM reader and probably one of those who know whats like that weirdo from the telly.

    Dogs fair game it’s just the rules of society.

    If you live in a semi or terrace then keeping the noise down and being considerate of others is as important a skill to learn as having fun and not crapping in your pants.

    If the walls are that thin just shout loudly with much swearing about the noise or put on some loud music

    That attitude stinks. You should get a slap onto your ugly spotty selfish face. Same as all your friends doing the same on that bus.

    Muppetwrangler,

    Why don’t YOU head out in the snow and get away from the noise that vexes you so much? Alternatively you could get a life.

    [/quote]what’s wrong with people on here?

    I often wonder the same thing.

    Except Beefheart who totally got and embraced the tone of the thread.

    You do realise it’s socially unacceptable to come on here and talk about thinking socially unacceptable thoughts?

    *writes to council complaining about inconsiderate children making noise while sledging in the park next to my house….*

    As a student the Christian Union often had sign alongs on the stair of the flat which backed on to mine. Didn’t really mind until studying for finals I asked them nicely to stop and to my surprise they got arsey and continued. I could have forgiven them but…..

    After my last exam we went on out for a prolonged imbibement session. I may have left my stereo with speakers to the wall on a timer set to go off at 11pm. I seem to recall the CD was Slayer. Explains my bad luck these past few years.

    some parents are choose to be oblivious to the noise/destruction/antics of their kids – fact.

    …which is probably what’s actually winding the OP up.

    we are often powerless to control the noise levels
    My neighbour complained once and i replied with if I had a **** remote i would turn them down

    i then invited him in to bollock them and they started crying as soon as he spoke =he was not even mean or shouting just explaining

    never knocked since.
