Not Happy Noisy early risers

I understand and sympathise with shift workers. My dad used to work 6-2 and 2-10 and often nights (especially in the 70's). I'm fortunate not to have to do that (so far). Sometimes I have very early starts (5am), and very late finishes (10pm), but it isn't consistent, and I can't claim to live that lifestyle.

OK - got that out of the way.

If you do the following you are an absolute **** of the worst kind:

1) Get up every morning at 4:45am in order to leave the house at 6:20am. There's no need. You're being a ****.
2) Slam every door like it was part of a soap opera argument.
3) Fall out of bed, and begin to load your van noisily at 5am.
4) At 5:55am start your evil, clattery diesel, and leave it running for 20-30 mins.
5) Even contemplate putting a large screen TV on an adjoining bedroom wall, so that while you're revving the nuts off the van, your fag-honking witch can sit in her pit watching the news, while adding an additional veneer of noise-hate to the existing problem.
6) Conduct loud phone conversations underneath my bedroom window in the early hours.

You're an absolute pair of sweaty arsed basts and I hope something unfortunate befalls you, starting with the fag-draining tracksuit bint, and ending with you, with your personalised plated pot-bellied, posturing, arsewipe, scumbag, can't park straight, churns the grass verge because he can't even exit his drive in a straight line, leaves his heap in the narrow street, even though he has ample drivespace for 2, drives over windy day recycling debris on his front, leaving it to other people to clean up, daily microwave feeding, tv dinner, you big fat redneck bell end.

I fear moving could be the best option here,

Lifes too short to be putting up with the special breed of moron the op describes.

Or play them at their own game, could get interesting...

Perhaps EP's OP is the draft message for the card.....

I've read your bad neighbour posts with interest EP because for years I've also had to endure noisy, unpleasant neighbours on one side. However I moved in with my partner a few months ago and aside from the house having far better noise insulation than my old place, the actual neighbours on each side are a pleasant enough bunch too. We get a little DIY noise from time to time, but equally we do our own DIY too, so very much live and let live there. The main difference is that they actually behave like 'normal' people....they don't make unnecessary noise, they don't argue like cat and dog using all of the expletives in the urban dictionary know to man (and woman), they don't play loud music, we don't hear their T.V etc etc. So a pairing of well insulated party walls and reasonable people has led to going home in the evening to be something to look forward too rather than something to get worked up about.
All I can say is good luck with an improvement...or move if you can. For no explicable reason sometimes we just get continually lumbered with bad neighbours, especially if the house in question is let out. I hope it improves for you.

You'll keep posting about this neighbour Steve, it won't help, but you know the only solution:

Extreme Prejudice.

Get on with it, faffy.

Let's read about it in the Durham Gazette.

SiF,

You need to move mate. Those ba5ta5dos will grind you down. The amusing 'do this to them, do that to them' responses are fun, but your neighbours are of the breed too unique to be troubled by any revenge act you inflict upon them.

I hear so many tales like yours, and while I don't have any answers, the same question keeps coming back - at what point did folks become such utter showers of revolting shiP that they just don't care about smashing up someone else's quality of life.

For what it costs, just move. The tragedy is - and without shattering your hopes - there's no guarantee your new neighbours won't be just as bad. The art of breeding anti-social, unthinking, thoughtless, gormless, uncouth, thick-as-pig-shiP morons, was established many, many years ago, I'm afraid

A driver is always faithful to a car that's always faithful to its driver.

Sometimes in the darkest hour, love comes shining through.
Then it doesn't seem so far from me to you.

Well said Scudetto, i myself was in a similar position and moving is undoubtedly the best thing i've ever done,
New neighbours are great, one is even a big Alfa fan so a bonus there !
Best piece of advice i found when looking at suitable properties was to observe the gardens of the neighbouring houses - if they look tidy and well looked after its the best sign of decent, houseproud residents.

No confidence that the situation would not be drastically worsened as a result.

Constructive suggestion.

Set fire to your house.

Flush the stards out.

Claim the insurance.

Move.

Simples.

It would solve your leaking garage roof problem at the same time.
