I have these irritating neighbours a few doors away, who have nothing better to do then grumble about things, and sit in their window all day. They have two cars, and run in and out of the house, as soon as they have parking near their house, and often put bins outside to save their parking. Thats not a problem for me but just shows how petty they are.

Anyway neighbour comes banging on my door last night complaining about son playing football with his friends on the street, he plays with a very cheap plastic ball that is so so light, he says son was deliberately hitting other peoples windows.

I ask son and he said he hadnt, but he had accidentally, neighbour then gets vexd and said no he did deliberately he was watching all this time, it wasnt even his windows! i think the noise of the ball irritates him. He wanted me to call son down so he could interrogate him, no way! I said i'd have a word with him, neighbour not happy and storms off.

Son tells me later that neighbour calls him and his mates, little sh**s, and neigbours wife keeps going out and shouting at them.

Sorry for the rant, just wondering what everyones thoughts are here?

i know where i live if you complain to council they will fine you for putting bins out too early. But remember revenge is a best served cold but find out about it. Probably can on ya council website and get photo evidence if you can w/o they seeing it

goodness.... they sound awful!

theres a psycho old woman at my sons school...parking is bad there and she legs it out if u r touching the solid white line slightly.... being the morning a lot of people do end up on there for a few minutes whilst dropping kids off...and then she'll come storming out.... seriously that woman needs a hobby...esp as the line isnt near her house!

sounds like ur neighbours have nothing better to do and furthermore ae loking for reasons to be annoying.... i wouldnt have bothered telling them id have a word wit my son... that makes them think they have one over u.... stand firm so they know trhey wont get any support from u.....

so rude they call ur son little *****...u should go round and say please can u stop using vile language around m child...its abusive and u should be setting better examples..... give them a taste of their own medicine..picking on kids... its disgusting!

Some sad people have nothing better to do than compain!

I was sitting with my 2 kids on a patch of grass near my daughters school eating our ice-creams the other day. A group of 4 boys aged about 10 were climbing one of the trees and hanging upside down from the branches. Their mothers were near by chatting. The boys weren't being noisy and the tree were sturdy enough to take their weight without the branches bending. An old man (in his seventies I would say) in one of the flats that over looks the green hung out of the window and shouted at the boys to stop and wanted to know if they were my boys. He said they were breaking the tree. I couldn't help my reply which was to ask him if he had climbed trees as a boy. I think this threw him a bit. I said I am sure he would have climbed trees as a boy and that they were doing no harm and could be doing many worse things. He had no reply to that and quickly closed his window! As I am sure as a boy he would have spent many hours climbing trees.

If you trust your boy is telling the truth then you could just have a little word with him about how funny and uptight some people could be and that it might be easier to try and avoid this couple in future. Surely it would be easier to try and keep the peace!

when they go out in their car and put a bin out you go and tip it over! lol

as already complain to council about bins, abusive language to kids and parking etc and for everything else just ignore them and get kids to play outside your house instead.

I didnt realise hed swore at my son untill after he'd left, he was completely out of order, im just waiting for him to complain about something else, he wanted me to knock on peoples doors last night to ask them if my son had hit their window, as if, what a prat! i've had quite a few run in with 'prat' about parking and stuff, and i think he knew he wouldnt get anywhere with his petty grumble. Strange how he's the only one who has complained...
#10
Sorry cant reply individually, site very slow, wont let me incorporate quotes.
love a bargain, i did tell the neighbour that they're kids and we've all played ball outside, i also told him, my sons not stupid enough to deliberately boot a ball at windows to get himself into trouble and be grounded. I think he wanted me to call him down and have a go at him, theres no chance i would ever humiliate him like that. what a sad git!
Anyway ive asked son to play at the top end of the street, where theres some space, just to keep the peace, im sure 'prat' will find something to complain again soon.
about complaining about bins, yes good idea, but i really cant be bothered to waste my time and be petty like them.
magic beans, if he says something else, i will bring up the subject of vile language, how dare he, wish my son had told me sooner

Seriously try the friendly route and you maybe surprised, made alot of friends with our neighbours this way, invited them round for dinner and had a laugh with all of them. Get all sorts of help from them too and i help them with their computers and networks etc. Its made our life on the street and everyone elses so much more pleasant.

Alfonse, your right, but i really cant stand them now, i don't even want to pretend to like them, i dont like confrontation so i will avoid it, but they are people i really have no time for after recent events

A few options that you could use :-

1) Knock on the biddies door, with a massive machete/carving knife/butchers knives/samurai sword, whilst wearing a red bandana on your head, you'll need some boot polish on your face, to cam yourself up, pace on the spot in an agitated manner, whilst sniffing loudly, and say "DO YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH MY KIDS !!"

2) Knock on the door, when it opens nutt who ever opens it

3) spray their windows with black paint

4) throw wood screws all over their parking area, and cover them with news paper

5) Let them know that you're raising your kids to specifically target nasty old biddies, and when your kids are old enough they will extract a prolongued campaign of hate, which will form part of their guerilla warfare training strategy.

Hope this helps, they've all worked for me !!

If your council is picky with what you can put in your bins why not put some of the wrong things in your neighbours bins- the binmen wont empty them and your neighbours will get proper annoyed. :x:x:x

The law:-
If bins are put out into the road to save parking spaces this is an unnecessary obstruction and can be prosecuted with a £30 non-endorsable fine.
Playing ball games in the street to the nuisance of neighbours is a bye-law enforceable by the council (believe me, they never do)
Awearing in public towards a child is a public order offence, again dealt with by the police.
In summary, it appears as though the law is on your side, however, as mentioned previously there is a civic duty for neighbours to get on and it may be worthwhile attempting a friendly approach before the police are called in.
In the police, you soon come to learn that there are 3 sides to every story, everyone tends to embellish their verson to make them sound less guilty. having said that, I would probably believe my child in the absence of any other corroborating info

I was told by our council, that when we put the bins out on bin day. They are insured from 6.00am in the morning till they get emptied.After that any damage that is done is your responsibility.
So, if your council is the same, your neighbours will be breaking the law.
Imagine the damage that could be done with a bin. lol

Good advice, it's good to know how you stand where the law is concerned, btw you a copper?
In this instance i have believed my son, i think a parent normally knows when their child is telling the truth or telling lies, think its quite sad of the neighbour to look out of his window, waiting for the kids to accidentally hit someone elses window so he can come storming over
