Fed up with foul mouthed neighbours..mini rant

Hello all,how are you today?
As my title says i am fed up with my neigbours..every single word that comes out of their mouths is vile..and always at high volume too..they just unleashed a barrage at each other in the front garden again.
Every summer since they moved in it has been the same..i have been round twice to ask them not to do it..they apologize and its quiet for a few days then it starts again.
We love sitting in our garden and the peace and quiet..which is abruptly shattered by them..the parents are as bad as the 5 teenage/twenty somethings that live there.
Every thing is done at loud volume..we can hear them going up and down stairs and every door that opens is slammed shut every single time.
I feel so sorry for the other neighbours that live next door..we live 1 door away and are relatively sheltered from the worst of it.
My poor neighbours that live either side of them have complained to the local council numerous times and got no where..and now the rude neighbours know that they have had complaints lodged against them they say in loud voices"we shouldn't swear as the f****ing,b*****d neighbours will complain again".

Its that bad that when they start i just take the girls in and then the neighbours wonder why i won't speak to them.

I should also point out that i am a calm easy going person and enjoy music..i like to hear music playing on a warm summer day..how ever when its full of disgusting words that make you want to run away and hide ,i don't like it...yet again if you complain you get the council saying "we are looking into it"..well maybe they should come and sit in my garden for a few hours and then see.
Sorry for the rant folks but i am so fed up with them..as soon as the sun comes out every conversation is held in the front garden and also every DIY project is done there too..but then as soon as it gets chilly they disappear inside ..i know more about them than they think as i can't help but hear it.
O well maybe i should buy earplugs for us all..as the council aren't doing anything.I would dearly love to squirt them with the hose pipe every time they swear but its a criminal offence to do that..my nice neighbour told me that as he seriously wants to do it..plus they might appreciate a bath as they are all highly fragrant..o that sounded nasty didn't it..its true though.
Rant over..

    How awful for you having to listen to that whenever the weather is decent. I have never quite understood this behaviour with using bad language/swearing with every sentence that comes out of your mouth. Is there anywhere else to complain other than the council since they seem to be useless?

  2. Hi Sandy..thankfully its only when the weather is good otherwise they crawl back to the rocks they live under..we can't help but hear it..it baffles us as to why the parents don't stop them but then they do it as well.
    My nice neighbours have been filling in a diary of noise complaints for over a year..i really feel for them..the council say its procedure to make sure they have enough evidence to sort them out..it really is ridiculous..we used to have a local council officer who would go and sort stuff out but she was made redundant last year.

  3. Our neighbours are usually pretty good but every so often they have a hot tub party. The hot tub is just out the girls bedroom window so they can see (nudity) and hear everything (swearing and lewd talk). It winds me up but it's only a few times a summer so we put up with it. Yours sounds far worse.

  4. Poor you. Happened to us once and it was a nightmare. The diary thing is the only procedure I have heard of. Mind you with so many digital devices you could record the sounds etc?

  5. Hi Sara
    You and any other neighbours who are experiencing this anti social behaviour could complain to the Housing office - if only the neighbours either side are complaining then if others also complain it will
    a) strengthen the case against these ASB tenants if other neighbours are willing to come forward
    b) stop the council from wimping out of dealing with these scum bags by blaming this ASB on 'a clash of lifestyle choices' (a favourite excuse of idle ineffective housing officers) I would hope that after 12 months of diaries and reports being sent in any decent Housing Officer should have served a Notice Seeking Possession against them by now and be ready to start court proceedings with any further evidence that comes forward.
    All the neighbours who are being subjected to the ASB could request a joint meeting with the local housing office and also ask your local councillor responsible for Housing to attend with you -you could also ask them to ensure that their legal team also attend to advise you what legal action the council can take. You could also tell them you insist that CCTV cameras are installed immediately to gather evidence - these could be placed either in one of your properties or they could install a dome hawk camera on a lamp post if the ASB happens in the front garden - don't let these scum bags spoil you and your family's enjoyment of your home - but to deal with them you need strength in numbers and the full support of the council ASB Team
    The council needs your precise dated evidence and you need the council and the councillor for anybody to win against these scum bags - Good Luck xxx
    PS I worked for 25 years as an Housing Officer before escaping into retirement 2 years ago! xx

    1. O you are an absolute treasure..i am going to ring my local council in the morning and insist on something being done..its unfair on the rest of us.."clash of lifestyle choices" made me chuckle..they have no lifestyle choices apart from making as much noise as possible..they don't work and sleep late every day and move furniture at 2 in the morning..neighbour who is joined to them told me that..we have 2 families who have complained and i am hoping if more do then we can get something done..
      I know they are on their last warning as they shout it every time they start on each other..
      The rest of my neighbours are lovely..we respect each others boundaries and also we try to be quiet and if there is a aprty we either a) are invited or b) we get a little note popped through the letter box at least a week before hand.
      I did hear its a new council policy to put "trouble families" in a nicer area in the hope it will rub off on them..nah not working.
      So i will get in touch with council and hopefully now i am armed with a few more facts i can do something about them.
      many thanks

  6. Gawd, how awful for you. I was going to suggest recording it as well. Then taking it to the council office and playing it to them. Are they council tenants? Maybe the best you can hope for is that they move on.

    1. Hi Ilona..yes we are going to record them..today was a blinder..the dad told his son he was a "f****g re***d"..the boy called him a fat t**t..no respect at all for each other or others around them..i am stunned at the way they are..maybe i have lived in a sheltered bubble but not any more..

  7. Sara, I am so glad that I am not the only one who can't stand bad language. I have asked several people in my office not to use it in front of me. Oddly enough,the men curb it but I think the women use it more just to irritate. I now simply ignore it. My husband never swears in front of me, not even when we have 'words'. To be honest we don't always agree but we don't argue and never ever shout at each other. I don't understand the need to scream and shout when annoyed.

  8. Hi Cherie..its foul isn't it..if you can't get your point across without swearing then you are ignorant simple as that.
    My hubby does swear but few and far between..i love we don't argue..most people think i am lying when i say we don't but we don't..we have words but then we always talk and compromise is our key.
    Honestly these people don't know how to do anything else but scream.
    Would love to wash their mouths out with soap to be honest..

  9. When my kids were little I would scrub their mouths with soap if they swore..... they would also scrub mine with soap if I swore.... They do the same with their own kids... it is probably considered to be abuse these days.

  10. The joys of social housing, we have new neighbours across the road and you can tell they're going to be fun. Why accept a house that has no parking at all and because of the bus stop no where to put any , when you have loads of vehicles? Evil gossip tells us she outbred her last property and has been moved because of difficulties. Her current partner has took down all the fencing and driven a big white van the whole length of the garden . He's another one busy chain sawing all the trees down for the newly installed council wood burner. Like I say they're going to be fun
