My neighbors are the most inconsiderate bunch I've come across. We share a fence with the son on one side, and his father on another side. They are extremely vulgar at all times and the sons glorify the "thug life". At one point one of his sons was pursuing a rap career. On to my current issues at hand: -Loud Vulgar Music The bass can usually be heard inside our house. If my nieces and nephews are over, it wouldn't be ok for them to play outside because of what they would hear. My parents also do not like to be outside if they are in their backyard. -Loud Vulgar People They are constantly swearing and screaming. They make it a habit to watch football games outside which compounds the issue. I've Been in the fathers house, they have a huge entertainment room yet they always have parties outside. -Litter in yard We find cigarette butts regularly in the corner of the yard where we share a fence with their backyard. At this point, I'm simply throwing them back over the fence. I'd love a more permanent solution though. -Fireworks/Explosives They have been setting off loud fireworks on a regular basis since the 4th. When I say loud, I mean they set neighbors car alarms off and people come out to look because it sounds more like an explosion. I hate to simply call the police but I'm afraid talking with them will only escalate things. My mom has tried many times to ask them to quiet down. They've apparently become less receptive to her requests lately. I'm amazed others haven't complained. I mean, maybe they have but I think a lot of people are afraid to speak up because of their "thug" persona. I definitely know that other neighbors have noted the obnoxious fireworks but I think most of the other issues are more directly related to my family because we share a fence with them. What can I do here? My one idea was to speak to all the neighbors that may be affected by these people and have us collectively sign a card or letter asking that they be more respectful of others in the neighborhood. Any ideas would be awesome.
