Gonna be a long night..

Looks like the noisy neighbours are down to
throw a party today.

Who throws an outdoor party with (really ****)
music on a Sunday night?

Ignorant French tourists, that's who!


They could do it on a Saturday night, but that
wouldn't **** anyone off.


Dickheads.

Re: Gonna be a long night..

Have you ever been to a French house party?


Piles of crap music and one bottle of wine per 10 people.

Dire.

Re: Gonna be a long night..

Friend just got back from 2 week "in-country"
with a load of friends.

As he's spent time in the UK and elsewhere he
has a more international idea of partying.

He said that the friends drank a bottle of
wine between 6 per night for most of the
holiday.

(He's verging-on-tea-total wife drank more than that! )

Maybe they got annoyed by
the dead horse's head I left them last time?

Re: Gonna be a long night..

Do what the French usually do if they don't like something. Strike, blockade or riot

Re: Gonna be a long night..

Our neighbours partied until 2am this weekend, but at least it was on Saturday night. Still a bit of a bugger though - they insist on having their music system outside, and incredibly loud.
If they had it inside their house with the doors open, then it'd still be fine for them, but it would muffle it for everyone else. By having it outside, they migth as well put the speakers up against our bedroom window.
There are various neighbours around with children, I can't believe it's not a massive nuisance for them.

Still, when we first moved in, and before I contacted them about it, they used to do the same thing regularly on weeknights.

That's surely not allowed bazza. Why not call the police?

Re: Gonna be a long night..

I would never have dreamed of calling the cops in the UK.

However over here, neighbours call the cops if you
scrape your chairs on the floor at night or talk too
loudly whilst eating outside at ~11pm.

So I think that's changed my attitude towards others
a bit.


And I managed to get 5 hours sleep in last night.

Tis true.

They can legally confiscate your stereo.

Here you get 1 chance with a quiet
cop visit, then they turn up with the
dogs.
