Inconsiderate Neighbors

Have you had one in your area?

Today I got another dose of little sleep time because of some insensitive neighbors around.

One of our neighbors in the block is celebrating his birthday and I guess he is singing it with a 'bang'.

Why singing? Let's put it this way, I came home from my shift around 10 in the morning and he was singing in full volume using a rented videoke machine. Well I didn't care much about it until I realized that I can't sleep. I locked our front door, went upstairs, tried to lock myself in my room, then in my parent's and last in my sister's room, but I can still hear not only his voice but his other relatives belting something out. I cannot stand it.

Then I sprayed some relaxing mist in my room, in the beddings but it did not help me relax and put myself to sleep.

Even the milk strategy and earplugs did not work. Goodness!

I already told Mom about it, but I'm not sure if they approached our neighbors about it, but they kept on singing until I left the house around 9:30 in the evening.

I am a very sensitive neighbor. I respect the space and privacy of other people especially when they need to have some rest. Even if I need to adjust and let go of some stuff that I want to do, I'd consider first the welfare of our neighbors before I do it.

I just cannot understand why they can't do it this time. :(

Sometimes people just don't think.

We have had road construction by our house for weeks. Now that it's warm out, and the windows are open, I hear the beep-beep-beep of trucks backing up in the wee hours of the morning as they get things under way. It drives me bonkers and costs me some sleep time.

I hope you get some rest.
