Need Deuce judgment on whether I'm overreacting/being a bad neighbour
Did you always type the U or does that make it into the vocab over time?
I always have. I initially learned English in an English school
Here is some help
Also..wonder if I might trade this kid for my neighbors chickens and rooster...
Paint an explicit picture on the wall
and blame it on the kid*
“Go away or I shall taunt you a second time!”*
I paid $3000 for a fence in my side yard to keep the neighbor kids out of my yard
Half of us here are so old and deaf we wouldn’t even hear the commotion.
Submit to Daily Mail ASAP. Its what a good Brit would do*
or just hire some soccer hooligans to fix the problem*
This is tit level awesome*
That's a tricky question if they won't abide by your requests.
I would've gone with Boris Pecker.*
He’s in Britain so Andick Murray*
did you intentionally draw him as dick and balls*
bottle rockets *
Do you have a window there? Spray him with a water gun*
I think you’re being insensitive here.
and he is using a flyswatter
I would only allow this for a limited amount of time at a specified time.
He also constantly knocks balls into our yard and then loudly knocks on our door to retrieve them *
Don't let him have the balls back. Problem solved.*
Give back sliced in half*
Buy some hedges/bushes that will cover up the wall. *
Right this requires a paintshop diagram*
I think I understand. Your property ends at the wall, so there’s no way to plant something there*
Then remove the wall, problem solved*
Your best solution is haighter's or to cover the wall in something that stops the game*
Impossible. I don't have access to the outside of the wall*
Since it's their part of the yard, right? What about getting up on the roof and hanging it down?*
It would be on his neighbor's property. *
I was thinking to attach and hang an old heavy blanket to the wall. The tennis ball will drop dead
Buy him a piece of plywood and some fasteners for the other side of his yard. *
He has a wooden fence on the other side of the yard. Your guess is as good as mine why he doesn't
I’m guessing that the rebound off the fence isn’t good enough. And young Tim Henman
“Young Tim Henman” lol (nm)
has that fact been brought up to the parents?
ah, k. then a final polite warning/suggestion and then sabotage the shared wall. *
I hit tennis balls against the garage door or shot hoops in the driveway for like 10 straight years.
I only got told to stop shooting hoops once in that situation.
If it's your wall he's hitting -- tell him or his parents to stop it -- otherwise let it be*
Do what the Missouri couple did.*
The extreme inaccessibility of firearms is just one of the hundreds of reasons I like it here *
Not a bad neighbor and it's your prerogative to limit it but I also think back to when I was 12
the wall of *your* house being the key word here... *
You should publicly shame them to the Daily Mail, that usually solves it*
LOCAL TEEN KEEN TO TAKE A CRICKET BAT TO THE SPLEEN *
just walk out there with a tennis racket, grab the ball and smash it down the road...
have you actually talked to the parents yet?*
Yeah, also what time is this happening at?*
We had the neighbor's kid behind us doing batting practice at 6am one Saturday morning. Annoying.
oh, do you have a view of this wall?
"oi bruv, there hasn't been a good English tennis player in decades
Yeah, I can see him out of our upstairs bedroom window*
I'd say shoot him, but that may be harder in England.
put poop on the wall and circle it with orange spray paint
You're probably a bad neighbor, but not for this. That's ridiculous. *
What avenues do you have to make it stop?*
Legally, short of laying into his parents, probably not much *
Do you have a stereo with a subwoofer? *
I mean, I used to play bass guitar. BEFORE I MOVED INTO THIS HOUSE AND STOPPED TO BE A CONSIDERATE
Sounds like it's time to start a band. *
Nine inch nails every time it starts. Vibrate their stuff off the walls. *
do you have any orange spray paint?*
This is the second suggestion involving orange paint and I feel like I'm missing out
I can't remember her name for some reason
You piled on her all the time. Don't pretend you don't remember who it was.*
I literally couldn't remember her name
Wait, LPAD? I seriously thought Sounder was talking about some D-list celebrity *
I completely blanked on her name, and it wasn't going to come to me*
whatever happened to her anyway? *
There was a pile on so she took her ball and went home. *
She picked the wrong side of an argument with Joe or someone, and got fed up with this place
narrator: there was no basketball season*
I think there was an incident that drove her away
IIRC it had to do with the Michigan governor's COVID response
Hasn't posted in a long while. I've seen her on FB occasionally.*
not an overreaction in the least
i don't even need to listen to know this would bug the crap out of me
HFS, I'd have it out with them. *
the obvious solution to this problem is to poop on their driveway
This is London, no one here has driveways*
