Our neighbor hood is turning into a children’s playground and a dog yard. Before any of these families with kids that are middle school age and under came in, our neighborhood used to be very peaceful and quiet.
I mean before the families, you can sit around the house and hear absolutely nothing at all. Just a couple cars passing here and there.
Now, we have a kid right next door who plays basketball incessantly. I have nothing against him wanting to play it, except that he plays it nearly three times a day. My family and I wake up to that aggravating bouncing of his at 7:30 or 8:30 in the morning. My parents have work at 9:00 - 9:30 and it just pisses the hell out of them (along with us) that they wake up a couple of hours before work and stay awake.
We have no where in the house we can move to because all of our bedrooms are on the right side of the house, which is on the side of that neighbor’s house. So we all can hear it! Still, we try to improvise unfortunately.
Then in the afternoons, it worsens when every kid emerge from their houses to play with each other. We hear screaming and running and chasing. Not the old peace and quiet where you can take a nice afternoon nap.
These kids are constantly chasing each other in between our houses and screaming their heads off like they’re possessed by the devil. Just imagine typing in your room when all of a sudden you hear a piercing and deformed scream interrupt your concentration.
And of all things that we have to deal with, is that we are utterly powerless to these annoying families because “they are just children having fun.” Have they HEARD these kids? It’s obvious enough that they don’t watch them, but dear god! Basketball three or four times a day?! Does that kid not have a playstation that he can play indoors all day? But unfortunately for him, his mother is probably one of those Christian type mothers who don’t provide or buy him silly toys because she may think that they are the devils toys. Like harry potter! He’s probably not even allowed to touch that.
So there’s my wonderful rant of my neighbors. Take note that it is 9:19 on our side and I would never be up this “early” just to rant about something like this.
