Ok, so we get on really well with our neighbours and have done the 10 years we have been here. However their 9yr old boy is a TOTAL brat. The way he speaks to/treats his parents is disgusting and he gets away with murder. As far as we are concerned though, thats none of our business.
About a week ago I started driving down the road and could hear a rattling noise. I realised that there was a rather large broken pebble sitting on my window wiper. I stopped the car and got it off, and it started raining about 10 seconds later, meaning that I could of used the wipers without knowing and scratched my window.
I was pretty sure that this had something to do with the boy next door and/or his gang of friends who have started hanging out outside our house. However I didnt actually blame him and thought there could be some innocent explanation.
Just seen him and 1 of his friends now playing outside. He was by our gate (and my car!) and his friend was across the road hiding behind a van and they were throwing these rocks/pebbles at each other. They were even bouncing off the van. It stopped as I was about to go out and ask what they were doing
This is obviously how the pebble ended up on my windowscreen, and why we have them on the grass verge outside our house and in our driveway.
My question is, how do I stop this happening without falling out with the neighbours.
Any advice would be appreciated, sorry its such a long post
