I hate my stupid mouth that says stupid things when I want to be taken seriously.

Our neighbours' 21yo boy is having a massive Australia Day party. All day, thumping music and raucous yelling - all good, it doesn't happen often. But some of his friends are obnoxious drunks who like to hang out on their roof and throw crap at our house. And pee on our roof. And chuck bottles in our driveway. So I went out and yelled nicely up to the roofline, "please stop throwing things at our house, it is upsetting our children". Several minutes later, DH yells out "no, absolutely not - don't p*ss on our roof". Then I went face to face with a guy throwing bottles down our driveway and said they were getting out of line - we're ok with the music and all, but leave our property alone and let us relax in our own home.

He said I was sooooo gay, and I walked up really close to him, asking what his problem is.
Him: "go on, I know you want to touch me"
Me: "no, really I don't - but you don't threaten me and I want you to leave our property"
Him: pointing to DH, "I can see he wants to have a go at me..."
Me: "of course my husband wants to touch me"

ddoh.gif I meant to say protect me.

And then they all went away laughing at me.  blush.gif

What's the earliest you can get a lawn mower or leaf blower happening tomorrow? Any possibility you could (legitimately) be doing it right outside his window at, say, 7 am?

Put it this way, he will feel like sh*te tomorrow....

I can't emphasise how imperative it is that you do this. And also get your kids doing some high-pitched screaming, do you have a toddler handy? They're really good at this. You can borrow mine if you like.


But in all seriousness, throwing things at your house and driveway and p*ssing on your roof - I would have called the police already. That's disgusting behaviour, and totally not within the bounds of acceptable neighbour behaviour no matter how infrequent the parties!!!!!

Some early morning loudiness is most certainly called for!

I wouldn't care how nice a 21 yo is or how infrequently he has parties. Throwing bottles and p*ssing on your roof? WTF? I'd be calling the cops! And bring on lawn mowers and leaf blowers.

Oh and  roll2.gif  at your 'of course my husband wants to touch me' roll2.gif

Gotta agree, its disugsting behaviour and defiinitely worth calling the police.

I actually think you defused a potentially bad situation by coming out with that last line. They seemed to want to have a go and in the end walked away laughing.

I wouldn't like your neighbours at all.

I would have called the police. Not on. If they continued you could charge them.

Posted 26 January 2013 - 08:50 PM

Crank the wiggles or similar as early as possible. The recorder is good also.

But seriously, like PP said, this behaviour is beyond acceptable. I also would have called the police by now!

I was cranky at my neighbor earlier for starting to mow the lawn at 8.15pm but only because DD was sleeping so peacefully after another humid day.

Posted 26 January 2013 - 08:53 PM

OP, you say it's the neighbour's son.  Are they home?  If not, do you have their number?  Cause I know I'd be pretty sh*tted off with my kid's friends treating my property and my neighbours property like that.


Alternative?  You ring the cops and tell the that they are destroying your property and you feel threatened.

He's actually their grandson, but he lives there with them. I know the grandparents have gone away for the weekend and left one of their adult kids (possibly the grandson's mum?) as chaperone, but clearly that isn't working out too well. He's not the one causing the trouble though, it's his mates.

They've settled down quite a bit now - I heard a heap of hotted up cars leaving a while ago, so fingers crossed the trouble makers have moved on. I dont want any trouble - i just want to feel confident that our personal property is safe. If there is any more trouble we will call the police. I'll definitely have a chat with the grandparents next week though.

I just wish I could be taken seriously. I took off my pink ugg boots, stood up for myself, and then made a fool of myself. Even DH sniggered.

You should have left your ping ugg boots on, gone over there  in your oldest trackies with a fag hanging out of your mouth and given them hell.   wink.gif

Your response made me laugh.  I'm amazed you put up with that!  I would have called the police.

Thanks for that I needed a laugh...after being awake since 3.30am by my 6 month old until 5.30am...it soon was followed by my 28 month old demanding breakfast at 5.45am...neither DH or I could physically wake up...so in the next half hour she engineered a devisive means of getting her way... she painted herself with all the markers she could get her hands on from head to toe...now they won't wash off...and it's smudged all over the dining seats, walls... anything white is no longer white..then jumped up & down on our bed...woke the baby again...DH finally got up to help & decided it was pancake day...(normally i would say yeah!!).....the kitchen is now a mess & i can't face another clean up so soon....she says she can't wait to show them off at daycare....
Anybody else enjoying their long weekend?
Ps sorry OP don't mean to hijack your vent/thread...but god you made me laugh!

Oh my goodness, OP, I don't know how you handled that kind of behaviour without completely cracking it! I would have gone absolutely mental at them!

#19 erindiv

Posted 27 January 2013 - 04:19 PM

I would have gone all bogan on them and leaned out my window screaming obscenities. Then called the police.

I think I might be a feral too.

I would have called the police throwing stuff at your property is unexceptable as is the urinating on your house! It dosnt matter that it wasn't  your next door neighbor himself  it was his guests he has a responsibility to make sure they behave themselves.

As for throwing things at your house and peeing on the roof, I'd be calling the police.

Dear OP, thank goodness you didn't try to say, "Of course I want to protect myself"! lol.

I think it might be too late to report the disgusting stuff to the police but certainly mention it to your neighbour when they return home. I'm sure if they are good neighbours they will be very interested to hear about it.

#23 sāta kōrsa

Posted 28 January 2013 - 12:34 PM

Honestly, I wouldn't be interacting at all with someone who is drunk and urinating on my property.  The police would have been my first port of call.

I hope all is well now and they're not giving a repeat performance today.

I admit I did lol at your slip of the tongue.

Not that it matters now, but I would have called the police as well.
