Does anyone else's neighbours have any late night peculiar habits..

My neighbour decides most nights although after a drink (assumption here ) he decides to opera sing and as the village is soo quiet at night it sounds sooo loud... it isnt the singing that is annoying though he is actually quite good its his method of tuning.. He gets in the car before the singing starts and revs it up really loud for about a minute, gets out locks the door and sings and then after a short burst he does it again..
What amuses me most is the donkey that decides to join in on occasion

Re: Does anyone else's neighbours have any late night peculiar habits..

We always know when one of our neighbours has had one too many. He gets his Yukulele or Mouth Organ and starts playing all these really romantic songs. One day we got home and he was playing at our kitchen table- totally blotto. We'd forgotten to close the kitchen/garden door and he'd brought a bottle to drink with us. As we were not here, he drank it by himself.

We made him a coffee and sent him home. He is not trouble really - and he's never done it again.

Our neighbours seem to only move furniture around at night and the night before last they were sawing at around midnight.

Re: Does anyone else's neighbours have any late night peculiar habits..

We have a downstairs neighbor that is an amazing piano player. I am usually annoyed by other peoples music but I haven't complained about this. I have asked around and other neighbors have also heard it but noone knows who it is.

Re: Does anyone else's neighbours have any late night peculiar habits..

We had these kids who were learning to play the guitar. But they just keep playing/singing "smoke on the water" over & over again. Not the whole song. I mean literally, just that part of the song!

GRrrr!

Re: Does anyone else's neighbours have any late night peculiar habits..

The couple leaving above our apartment keeps moving furniture, that too at late night. Its an elderly couple.. Sometime I cant stop thinking what exactly are they doing at 2:00 AM in the morning moving furniture

The adjacent neighbor to left watches television late night..
The neighbor on right have a small kid who cry (occasionally though and heard only during summer as the windows are open)

But in general I am not disturbed so much.. And I do my part too sometime on weekend when I invite some of my friends for a booze.
