We Are Not Morning People


This is no surprise to anyone who knows us. Even The Phi is not a morning person. We prefer to sleep in as long as we can. I wake up with just enough time to shower get ready, get Phi ready and get out the door. PR Dad is a horrible sleeper. He can never fall asleep. It takes him hours. He averages about 4 hours a night. Well since Saturday our neighbors a few houses down decided that 5:30 AM is a great time to water the flowers and B-L-A-R-E Mexican music. 5 fucking 30 in the morning. It is so freakin loud that it wakes up PR Dad, it wakes me up, but the woerest of all, it wakes up The Phi. It leaves her tired, cranky, and completely off schedule. Yesterday, after be woken up at 5:30 she fell asleep at the office at 9 am and slept for over an hour. So after a day out and a trip to the park she fell asleep again about 6pm. I had to wake her up at 7:30 and she was so cranky. All because someone blared their music at such an ungodly hour. When it happened on Saturday PR Dad got out of bed and walked over there, but it was over by the time he got out there. This morning I was pissed when it woke me up, then I heard The Phi calling for her Dad and I picked up my phone. I called the cops. I totally ratted them out and made a noise compliant. A cop cruised by and of course it was over by the time they got there. The cop called me and said he didn't hear anything, but if I were to hear it again to call back. Tell me people, what would you do in this situation? Would you try to solve it yourself, or bring in the authorities??

  2. Call the cops! I have a "problem" apartment building across the street and I am constantly calling on them more for a record of how many frickin' times they are a problem than actually thinking that the cops can do something about it. It also doesn't help that you don't know the people, it would suck if they were mean and got nasty or violent - to top it off then they would know it was you doing complaining. The cops are there to keep the peace, let them do it...

    ...and I step down off of my soapbox and return you to your regular programming.
