advice needed over trampoline and neighbour
Found 22nd Apr 2010
My sons friend was selling his trampoline cheap as his boy had got fed up of it so I said id have it as I though it would be good for my son to do something other than play on his playstation. Anyway my son fetched it and put it up, then called me to see it. OMG!!! Its 12ft and fills the top of the garden although theres still room for the wheelies and the table and chairs. Its an old terrace house and theres 8ft high walls around, so its private, theres only my 13 yr old who uses it, not lots of screaming kids, BUT when I was outside today my neighbour had a go at me." What on earth is that monstrosity, ive never seen anything so silly, etc and how long is it staying..." etc I was taken aback as weve only had it a day. I thought it was too big but Id keep it for a bit as im sure my son would get bored within a few weeks. He was saying the person on it could look straight into his house, but I was watching my son and he wasnt actually staring at them, most of the time he was looking at me in the kitchen. He doesnt get home till about 6 so will only use it for about an hour at night at most, although probably more at the weekend. I dont want to annoy the neighbour, thats the first id seen of him, but I think hes one of these who moans about everything. Over xmas when there was no bin collection for 2 months I had a lot of rubbish in the garden and someone complained as i got a letter saying so, so now I can guess who it was. What would you do? Its not going to be there forever but I feel as if every time my son goes on it hes going to complain.
