Here We Go Again!

Ok, now I'm seriously getting annoyed with the opposite neighbour. As if the noise they made with the firecrackers last Saturday was not enough so this evening they start blasting away firecrackers non-stop for god knows how long. It's still going on even as I type this post.

Come on people, like I said in my earlier post. I'm not against celebration but be a bit more respectful of your neighbours who harbour peace and quiet. Go ahead and blast all the firecrackers you want but not for two or more non stop hours! Some of us want to enjoy a nice quiet dinner and also catch some TV. Some of us have to do colon cleanse reviews!

The noise you guys are making are really getting on my nerves. And the amount of smoke being generated by the firecrackers is so foul that wifey had to close all our doors and windows. I'm not even going to mention about the screaming and unruly kids throwing all kinds of sparklers here and there. I wonder which house they might just burn down!

Come on you overly insensitive morons, I'm already getting really pissed and if by the time this post is done, you guys are not through, I am going to have some nasty words for you. Pebbles is so terrified by the noise that she's running around in fright every time a firecracker explodes. Even trying to carry her is not doing any good as she kicking and scratching me wanting to go hide somewhere.

She's really terrified and even tried hiding out in my laptop bag, the poor girl. Here she is trying to find cover in my bookshelf and you can just see the fear in her eyes, so much so that she doesn't even want to eat her favourite treats offered to her, which is really rare. Ah good, the morons have finally stopped! Peace at last.

  3. You should go out there, take a firecracker and shove it up their butts. It's supposed to be banned but somehow the law enforcement conveniently closes on eye during Raya month.

    My family played with crackers that didn't make any sound, and the police were there in 15 minutes because some neighbors complained. Oh well, what to do, have to just cope with the double standards.

  8. nick I feel so bad for you and your family. just seeing that look in pebbles eyes is terrible. maybe you should take her to their house and let them see her. better yet, take her to the vet for tranqulizers and take them the bill, along with the police. they are not nice neighbors obviously, because they ignore everyone else.

  9. Oh dear. Por Pebbles! Dogs are very sensitive to noise, she must have thought it was thunder.

  10. Anny - Beats me, fear can make people including dogs do all kinds of weird stuff ... hehehe!

  11. Anny - We did close all the windows. We even offered her some of her favourite snacks but she was too frightened to even bother with it.

    I did try to sit next to her but she was more interested in squeezing into my laptop bag. As to how she got there, well, she jumped from my lap onto the shelf ...

  22. Anny - Pebbles is different, she just wants to find a corner far, far away and hideout. She really was shaking with fear. Darn those neighbours.

    What? Piper also penakut ... hehehe ...

  23. Kadusmama - Exactly! Celebrate all you want but with a little consideration would be helpful.

  24. Soulie - Ear plugs! Hey, that's a good idea ... now if she'll only let me touch her ears, she gets pretty irritated when I try touching her ears ... LOL!

  27. Unfortunately, firework blasts and petards being let off are the order of the day in summer here in Malta. Every weekend fireworks are let off in an average of 4 villages celebrating their feasts. Forget about going somewhere in peace - you can't get away from them.

    Now that the summer festas have finished we are being bombarded with the sound of gunshots. We don't have much choice. Check out my last post and you'll see what I mean. http://anecdotesfrommalta.blogspot.com/2009/10/hunting-in-malta-2.html
