Hello Offbeat-ers! I’m having a little problem with my neighbours. (I’m Canadian… my neighbours get a “u.”) I’m curious what you might suggest for me.
Our backdoor neighbours have a little parking lot for their backyard, and gangs of kids play there almost non-stop in the summertime. These dozen kids or so SCREAM, yell, laugh, bang basketballs and soccer balls around, and generally have a great kid time.
But it’s all day. And I work from home. So in scorching, non-AC, 35C (95F) weather, I’m closing my windows to shut out the screaming so I can get some work done. What is an acceptable level of noise for playing kids? Is it fair to swing by to ask the neighbours to keep it down for at least some of the time?
