I'll have to check to see if it records the sound.
The neighbors told me they don't want to get involved, it's just easier for them to turn the other cheek and live a lower quality of life. Besides I don't live next door to him. YOU do! Not MY problem.

It will become a problem if some day that death trap he races around in runs over a kid or hits their car. Would I be allowed to say I told you so?

My phone died a week ago yesterday. I have a "rental" until October when I can upgrade. I lost all my apps, contact groupings, game levels & points. Once I got apps reinstalled I had to remember all userids & passwords. I didn't have access to my password list so it took me a while to figure out how to get back on. I get to do this all over again in October with a new phone.

So sorry for your loss Cindercat. A cellphone these days has so much on them that it is quite the ordeal to get a new one when yours dies. Good luck on the use of the rental and getting a new one. :)

Absolutely! and don't forget the Ha ha, in front of it. And do it in sing song like a kid would.

I'm still at my shop, hungry and tired. Back-to-school hair cuts all week long.
First thing I'm gong to do when I get home is open an ice cold Sapporo, sit out in the patio, and stare up at the sky.

Roadfix is such a nice guy. He was about to close shop and just let another client in. The last remaining hair dresser agreed to do the kid's hair cut.

As far as the extreme fumes making me sick from the carbon monoxide,I think he needs to find a new playground. The decibles are loud enough it hurts my chest from the rumbling. I can't even watch tv, talk on the phone when he's playing.
I had a free iPhone app that's a decibel meter. It's surprisingly accurate. I don't remember what it was called, but if you have a smart phone it's something to look into...

That idiot Nascar kid is lucky he doesn't live on my street. The local cholos will take care of him in no time.

cindercat, ask your cell phone service provider if they have something called a backup assistant. it automatically saves your phone info including numbers and apps, and when you get a new phone they can automatically load it up for you.

munky, have you spoken to your loud neighbor about it?
some people are idiotic until someone points that out to them..

don't threaten him with police action, but also don't be timid.

tell him, face to face, that your street and neighborhood is no place for what he's doing.

i have a number of friends who live somewhat freely (wild interpretations accepted) and don't worry about anything until someone complains.

ypu can't be a b!tch about it, nor be a pushover. just tell him, eye to eye, that he needs to find sonewhere else for his hobby. no threats, no tough talk. but you have to take the first step. any judge will ask you if you told him that it bothers you.
