Fair enough Lou, and you're right, if they're acting illegally, they're going to keep quiet.
In that case - I agree with you both. Bung him under the patio ecokid!
On a serious note, that's a horrific amount of c**p you've had to deal with, Lou. I've had relatively few neighbour issues, until I moved into this house. Mainly children who've clearly been allowed to do what they want for years, and don't take kindly to being told that it's not happening any more. Their parents are just as ignorant unfortunately. A friend across the road had a parent at her door because she'd shouted at their child. The child along, with two others, had been standing at her boundary fence, poking it's hands in and teasing her dogs who were going mental barking. I said to her, I bet it would have been a different story if one of the dogs had then bitten their feral brat.I'd heard the commotion and also saw him at the door and was ready to give her moral support if needed. She's no mug and saw him off.
As I'm on my own, I don't have a man who can go round and do a bit of 'talking' and it does make me an easier target. I harbour dreams of chucking a well aimed, lit rag in the direction of the neighbours' 'vehicles' across the back from me. If he filled them with fuel, he'd double their value...
The sad thing is, it's not the big issues that cause problems - it's the ones that are considered low level nuisance - noise is probably the most common. These irritations on a regular basis are what drives us all mad.
Why are so many people so b****y inconsiderate?
