    On me because I'm revving the engine in MY driveway and running in and out (that's what she said I was doing...)! This builds off the "How late do you work on your truck" thread I suppose. Anyway, I'm letting the engine IDLE while I add coolant. That's it. No revving whatsoever. I then leave (head to the Chevron) and my new neighbor decides to call our landlord and complain. I've lived here for 7 years and no one has ever complained. What would you guys do?

    Stockk5, I'm not worried about it so much as annoyed. This lady has shown repeatedly that she just can't wait to complain about something...anything. She's mad at me, truth be told. She came over to my truck at 2:00 am while I was polishing my wheels...with a rag and mother's (quietly) and proceeded to interrogate me. After her third inquisition as to what I did at night, I told her it was none of her business. So she got mad, and ever since she's been crazy. My wife and I try to wave at her and she'll have none of it. She ignores us. Looks the other way, etc. I know what the problem is. She's mad, and she's just not very smart. I'd be mad too if I were as dumb as she appears to be.

    Anyway, I've even started parking on the street if I come home late at night...because I'm TRYING to keep it down. But after this, my attempts are apparently not working out. So....perhaps I should go on living my life the way I have the last 7 yrs here. Screw this life altering BS she's got planned. She also said she almost called the cops. Of course, I hear all this through the landlord since she can't handle talking to me. Well I said let her call the cops. If magically, I can't drive my vehicles out of my driveway at 10:00, then the cops must have something new to say.

    Let her complain. After a few groundless complaints bith your landlord and the police will (or should) get the message that she is a whiner and tell her to stop. Just don't give her a good reason.

    we have someone in our neighborhood like that.... 4 houses down and across the street from me....
    she called the cops because we had a fire in my neighbor next to her back yard... it was in a fire pit... the cop looked at us and said... I would build it up... smother it with wet hay, take a fan and blow that mother fer into her house (HE ACTUALLY SAID THAT :haha: )

    he walked over there and she reamed him for the fire still being on.... there is more to it... they have 3 kids... the older tells the 2 year old to say biatch loudly so they can hear them, they curse up a storm... low lifes... my son trying to ride his bike without training wheels fell over and they laughed at him.... he was upset being 5 that people could do that...so we dont talk to them anymore.... however when I take my truck by their house I rev the shat outta it.....dont drop the clutch because that is wreckless....



    anyhow what I would do is find out what time the ordinance is in your town.... and f her because the ordinance is there for people like her to not complane until then...

    in our area it is 11pm... hell my air compressor, welder and hammering goes on from day to 11pm or even 1am.... no one complains....

    Sounds like one of those people who have nothing better to do. They like to stay up late and look/wait for anything to happen that will give them reason to call the landlord.

    Another possibility is that people like this could be lonely and are seeking attention, but in a way that you and I could not fathom.

    If I were you, I would let it slide a little longer. If she does contact the landlord and the landlord doesn't do anything about it, forget it. But if the landlord makes a note about it to you, call the police and file harassment charges on her, just to get her to back off and shut up.

    Guys we should see if we can get a group price on those electric exhaust shutoffs. Open the exhaust full to piss off those people who whine, and when the cops show up have the exhaust closed off. :D I'd love to have one of them rigs.

    I'd put louder mufflers on, disconnect the choke so it's really hard to start when cold and find reasons to wake up in the middle of the night and drive to the chevron for a gallon of milk, place some evil looking demon sculptures on the side yard facing her house and form a pentagram in the front yard using rocks from stonehenge........ :bow:

    do what i did- push the limit of the law if there is one- be real loud so when ure quite she cant complain. when she comes over to complain when ure real loud,say ure just living up to the complaints. she should appreceate ure quite time a little better :D

    the only prob i have is i like my other neibor so i cant be to mean cause i dont want to be on her bad side.

    but they got the point at 11pm new 350 and no headers next to their fron door :eek1: :haha:

    Had a friend that lived accross the road from a small welding shop that was in an old metal building with no air jusr a exaust fan. :( He worked a early morning job so he had to get up very early. All he done is walk over and let them know what his/work slash sleep hours were since he found that in the summer the mostly worked at night when it was cooler. The guys said ok and most of the hammering that they done started happening before his bed time or after his wakeup time. You know a few weekend nights it was excessive but they also worked on there own projects. they really done all reasonable to keep it down at night when they worked at night.

    It is like at work why can't people be reasonable and talk out thier problems. Seems as if some people just want to be a pain in the. If she would just say I do this at this time and really need quiet it would be a different story.
