We Have This Neighbor...

...who is driving us nuts.

First off, we live in a circle, which, if you 've ever lived in a circle, you know you're a part of a tight-knit mini-community.  You don't go rockin' the boat.

But they race around the corner at at least 30 miles an hour, and speed UP until they're in their driveway.  Now, my perfect children know not to play in the street, but that doesn't mean they're not going to one day accidentally find themselves chasing after a ball without thinking straight into the road...and into the path of a wanna-be vehicular homicide maniac.

Next, they listen to "thump thump" music.  Anyone who has ever met me knows how much I LOATHE thump thump music.  More than the music itself is the TIME OF DAY in which these wonderful neighbors decide to BLAST their crappy music.  6 AM, every single morning, while warming up their car.  Please explain to me why you need to keep your music at max volume while you're warming up your car, AT 6 IN THE BLOODY AM!

How about 2 a.m.?  Or Sunday afternoon, when that traditional sleepiness overcomes you, but alas, Jay-Z doesn't exactly produce Lullaby music, does he?

I have earplugs, but base, my friends, travels through vibrations in the ground.  And there is no magical earplug out there that drowns out base.  (Or is it "bass"?  I'll have to look that up...)

Sooo....I don't know what to do.  We've talked to them SEVERAL times about it, and they glare at us like we're the ones being rude.  I very much dislike contention, arguing, fighting, etc.  And in a circle, it's very important to be diplomatic.  But I'm about to put Salt Lake County Police on my speed dial. 

Ever seen "The Burbs"?  I should be so lucky...

First of all when it comes to the safety of the kiddos and them speeding I would FREAK out. Nothing makes me more mad than when people speed down subdivision roads. At this point if you have already talked to them on several occasions I would say it's a good time to stop thinking you can be friends, or friendly and I'd just kick their ass. Oh wait....

You make me laugh, Lac, but you are ABSOLUTELY right.

I know how you feel. My neighbor just woke Ethan up and I haven't been able to get him to go back to sleep.......
