Just a little vent about my neighbours, Im soo freaking of sick of their crap! Bit of background, They moved in about 8 months ago, and at first i thought something wasnt right, the mother moved the kids in and pretty much only stopped in for 5 or 10 mins a day for almost 3 weeks, the youngest child being about 9 years old, theres 3 kids.
So i was a little worried at first cause the younger kids would be out on the road at all hours of the day and night, hardly going to school, then the mother finally made it to actually being there more than a few mins at a time.
Now i understand she probably has to work, my mother was a working single mother, but we were trained, we had boundaries these kids have no idea, the swearing that comes from their house is ridiculous, they have murdered a snake, carpet snake, harmless, just leave it and it will go away, but no these kids had to kill it, the mother thought it was nothing. My kids were in tears when they just threw it out their gate onto the road!
We aren't angels! I mean we have 5 rowdy boys, we are known to have loud music, and we have get togethers with family and friends occasionally. So last night, i head to bed about 9.30pm and start to drift off to sleep, only to wake to screaming and yelling, the mother and teenage girl are fighting.. Happens often, what 15 year old doesnt fight with their parents, so it all goes on for about an hour, by this stage ds5 has been woken up by their crap luckily the other boys and Dh and still sleeping.
They seem to settle for a bit so i get ds back to sleep and head back to bed, not even 10 mins after i finally crawl into bed they are at it again, the teenager has locked the mother out and now the mother is screaming and yelling and bashing on the front door. Screen door mind you, so in a quiet street all you hear is the screaming and rattling of the door.... for over an hour at close to midnight
SO by this stage everyone is awake in our house, i can see the other houses in the street turning their lights, i was just waiting for the police to show up.. but they didnt the mother got into the house and pretty much went mental i could hear breaking and yelling and thumping. Im not sure what was going on and what i should do, i really want to ring their real estate, but then i think it might make it hard for them to find a house in the future, I'm a bit torn... I'm not the sort of person to complain about my neighbours, live and let live i say, but this is really going a bit too far for it to be ignored any more. Any advice?
