They'd probably laugh because I live in suburbia....then again, there probably isn't a whole lot going on, so maybe they'd send someone out. I know one of the higher-ups at the local station, but I'd only call him if she started to make an issue of it.

I had one of those (drug dealing neighbor), but he was also an aspiring DJ with HUGE speakers and no furniture.

PSA for DVDTALK: Do not living in/around a sketchy part of a city that is always in the top 5 of Murders, Violent Crime, and STDs. (B'more in the house!!)....because you may get shot.

I think you're confusing the word "Hell" with "threatening to beat her face in."

Anyway, you should have went with the **** punch. Pretty much the solution to everything.

Confronting people only works if you know they are as rational as you are, but if they are acting irrationally, then probably not.

I live in an apartment complex and I see this kind of crap all the time. I can't say I ever felt compelled to say anything, but it usually involves somebody pulling into a parking spot and honking their horn repeatedly before they even come to a complete stop.

What I find much, much more annoying are those morans who think the entire world wants to hear the bass in their music, so they pump it up so loud it vibrates through every piece of wood in my floors, walls and ceiling. That's particularly special after midnight.

I guess I am the crazy one for acting like I live in a COMMUNITY and respecting the fact that noise and other things just suddenly don't stop traveling because I close a door/shut a window. I do my best to not behave in annoying ways (my rule of thumb is if I can hear my music or TV out in the hallway with the door closed above just normal noise (like putting on my jacket) then it's too loud. Unfortunately, some people just can't seem to grasp that concept. They are usually lacking in other areas of their life as well.

As for dealing with rationale people....unfortunately most people can fake 'normal'. I once told a lady at the supermarket to watch her kid, because he took out half an isle with his arms, and the ran into me. She went off on me, and I invited her to my Anger Management class, and she stopped dead in her tracks; it was awesome. (one of those, 'I'M NOT ANGRY!!!!!!!!!!' ) I had an employee thank me for that one.

btw....yes, I am that guy who will tell someone when they are being an idiot or their spawn are being idiots. I consider it part of my charm.

Yep, because everyone works the typical 9-5, going to bed at 10pm. EVERYONE works the exact same schedule, no one ever sleeps during the day, working at night.

You could always come bouncing out with a baseball bat ever time someone is noisy, and yell something like, "What's wrong? I'm here to help! Where's the trouble?!"

If you don't want people honking their horn at 4 in the morning, how is that any different than me not wanting people honking their horn at 4 in the afternoon?

It's not hard to have respect for other people 24hrs a day.
