Do you know what I hate about living near other people? The constant noise. It always seems to me that people around me do not afford the same consideration that (at least, I hope!) I do - specifically when it comes to noise - be it dogs barking, or having that damn hifi (or television come to that) turned up so loud you can hear it TWO HOUSES ALONG. Now, don't get me wrong, I like having music fairly loud at times, but not at ten to bloody twelve at night!!!! Normally it wouldn't bother me too much, but I fear that working from home is turning me a little bit mad :)   *sigh* Even having a polite word with them didn't seem to make any difference. It's a pity that I have to live next door to them; at least our other neighbours don't have to deal with it being THAT loud.
