    Most of my neighbors are pretty decent... on our cul-de-sac. The neighbor kids sometimes leave me free gifts in the form of sleds or baseballs, which I pick up and if they ever bothered to knock and ask I'd return. (I guess I'm the cranky lady in that regard) but we have a few nutters not too far away.

    There was a ranty letter about someone painting their home blue (original colors were all greys/greens/tans... this was a very neutral and normal blue) to the point they called it a "lollipop house" and "unnatural".... until someone pointed out that even though it rains frequently the sky is still naturally blue.

    I've lived here 3 years and know "maybe" 10 peoples first names. They always ask how can I stand to be in my apartment all the time but I always wonder how they can stand to be in each others business all the time.
    They're all nice people but I'm not into all that togetherness.

    This lady surprised me some since our snowplows are here all winter at 4 AM, garage trucks at 7 AM, lawnmowing at 8 AM and from there on out, delivery trucks all day, mail trucks, moving trucks and an ambulance at least twice a day. I couldn't figure out why a saw running for half an hour would upset her on a lovely Sunday afternoon for half an hour 4 stories below her apartment.

    Noisy neighbors and barking dogs are at the top of the list of the most annoying things. I am grateful for my apartment manager. She tells everyone who is looking at an apartment in my area that I sleep days and if they choose an apartment in this area they must be quiet. I don't mean silent, just quiet. Their children play outside and laugh and play, but are kept away from my bedroom window. My neighbors stand outside and party, but the music is kept low. I haven't had to walk outside with my Louisville Slugger to calm them down in a few years now.
    I hate barking dogs. People don't realize what it's like to hear a dog barking off an on all day (or night) when you are trying to sleep, it's very inconsiderate, even rude, to allow your dog to continuously bark. I even can't stand to hear my own dogs bark, which they sometimes do, and are quickly told to quiet down. There are laws in place about barking dogs, unfortunately they are so obscurely written they are unenforceable however, recording your dog barking and putting it on a loop definitely falls into the one enforceable category.

    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Oh man. I swear that the dog that lives downstairs is rabid.
    Every time I pass the door or even the window, the dog is barking uncontrollably. When I walk past the door, you can hear (and see) the door moving, from the dog ramming himself into it.

    ...when we moved in, our neighbour to the west, came and introduced himself.

    And then warned us he'd shoot our dog, no questions asked, if he even stepped one paw onto his property...

    We had two corgis at the time...and he hadn't even met them yet...

    I hate barking dogs, too, and hate the owners more that allow them to bark, and bark and bark for hours.

    Earplugs can be such a blessing in some situations ... Whoever gave us earplugs should be given the Medal of Honor.

    For me, personally, the only noises that really bother me are very jarring, high-pitched sounds like raking one's fingernails down a chalk board. I've left the skin I leapt out of behind several times when classmates in school used to do that while the teacher was absent. Any jarring, high-pitched scraping sends chills down my spine.

    As for revving motorbikes, barking dogs, and other loud street or neighbor noises, I've never been bothered by those, but then, we used to live in the heart of a very large city where those kinds of disturbances were taken for granted and we got used to them so after awhile, we barely noticed them.

    It wasn't noise we dreaded, it was the VERY QUIET ACTIONS some folks did while others slept at night, such as sneaking around stealing things from yards, hiding in bushes waiting to attack someone -- those stealthy predatory things that really bad people do, and you never hear a sound until it's too late, and often no sound, at all.

    And we must have been very sound sleepers, because we would wake up in the morning, go outside to our driveway and find that someone had slashed our tires during the night.

    Noise? I'd take noise over that, anytime!

    But for those who are bothered by noise during the day or night time, earplugs are a godsend. Count them among mankind's most useful -- and thoughtful -- inventions.

    I should not have to wear earplugs in my own home because of someone's inconsiderate and selfish actions. Shut your dog up!
    Motorcycles in general don't bother me, but when the Harley Davidson shop down the street has their annual get together, the constant sound of large motorcycle groups all day and night does start to get to me after several days.

    My son recently bought a large partical of land large enough to put up 3 houses on it. One for him and his wife. He went out there at night and sat there for an hour and said if he heard one D---- dog barking, he would not build his house there. He has built 3 already in the country and at each one, was up half the night listening to barking dogs. People do require sleep and really, you move in the country because you prefer the peace and quiet.

    Nothing like building a big, beautiful home and can't even sit outside on your deck.
