To the neighbor who started using a power tool at a quarter to seven this morning:

Sir, you suck.  You suck giant, hairy, donkey balls.  That power tool sounds, in our master bedroom, like a three and a half year old child continually screaming in his sleep.  May you royally FUBAR whatever project you absolutely must work on with loud, screaming power tools before seven in the morning.  And may your wife ream you a good one about any costs you incur attempting to repair your power-tool aided screw up.

Guess I'm getting an earlier start than I'd planned, this morning.  Damn it.

  1. There's nothing worse than being awaken in your last hour of sleep by OUTSIDE NOISE!!

    NOISE REVENGE REQUIRED!!

    We have a coal train that comes thru town several times a day & night--my nephew use to live right near the tracks and the NOISE is roaring!

    (PS: The comments opened on my first try!!)

    1. I doubt there's anything I can do to get noise revenge on the sad sack that lives across the alley from us.

      Glad the comments are working for you again.

  2. Ugh. I NEVER use my edger before 10 am on a weekend, even if that means I'm dying of the heat by the time I'm done, because I like to respect my neighbors. (I have a reel-type lawnmower which is essentially silent, so i CAN use it early).

    For one summer the house next to me was a rent-house full of post-adolescent party animals who played music loud enough I could hear it over a white noise generator and earplugs....EVERY NIGHT. I called the cops on them but of course nothing ever happened. I was damn glad when they got evicted (apparently for causing a major rodent infestation with their slovenly habits...I used to have to pick half-eaten fast food and empty beer cans out of my lawn on a regular basis)

    People like that should wind up living next door to each other, and not to people who actually WORK for a living and have to sleep at night.

    1. I wish I had you as a neighbor, Ricki. You'd be far more pleasant than the guy behind us (who also works, but gets up at the butt-crack of dawn on weekends to work on building his hot rods).

  3. Shotgun + power tool = quiet, after first shot. When the cops arrive just say, "Who, me?"

    1. Don't tempt me... We live way too close to the police department for that.

  4. You know, there's something about having a loud party in your back yard with blaring music at around 10pm that may get you your revenge. If he gets up that early, he theoretically goes to bed early too.

    Here's a cup of coffee and some bacon.

  5. That would be so much fun...if both the kids could sleep over at Grandma and Grandpa's house. Alas, the pixie still wakes to breastfeed at least once during the night.
