Be sure to make a photocopy of the document first, just in case it "accidently" disappears.

Facebook, where friends force guilt laden nothings down each other's throats and flood each other with the inane. Choking and drowning in the congestion.

That pretty much sums it up for me as well.

sweetness, when applied thickly, sometimes can drown just like water.

Thanks Z, I will do that. There is no way I will pay more money.

Have you asked him to turn it down, Babe? Barring that, have you called the cops on him?

People who have music so loud that it can be heard all over their neighborhood KNOW they are doing it and obviously couldn't care less what anyone else thinks about it.

I would go over and politely ask them to turn it down. One time.

Then call the police and explain to them that you've gone over and at what time and ask them to have a patrol car stop by and tell them to adjust the level of the music.

I had a similar problem with a rental next door to me. It turned out that after checking, there is NO noise level restrictions for my area. There was absolutely nothing that the police could do.

I ended up calling the owners of the property at 2am and asking them to stop by and see what they thought.

There has never been another problem since then.

Good luck Babe2. This type of thing can get nasty.

Holy heck in a handbasket! We've had some renos done this year and everytime I turn around there are MORE problems. All we had done was replace the deck and put in a patio. When we took the deck off, we realized the furnace exhaust was under the deck and back door. Bad. In getting a quote to fix this problem, it became clear that it would be more cost efficient to just replace the furnace. WELL...in doing THAT we have run into a whole host of issues. The dryer vent...the other vent...the hot water thing...and NOW...there is a gas leak in the furnace and it needs to get fixed ASAP. I am supposed to be going in to work tonight and I've got a jillion things that need doing. This is too important to ignore, so now once again, I'm WAITING for someone to call me, and to come fix something in the house. ARGH!

Oh, and just to top it all off, my 19 year old kitty is not eating well. Not a huge deal for a regular cat, but she is diabetic so we run a little balancing act. How much insulin can we give her based on how much she has eaten. I can't bear to lose her right now. I hope like heck she eats something today.

Dealing with contractors can make you crazy!!!! You have to wonder how some manage to stay in business with their total lack of customer service skills.
