The dad died from cancer about a year ago, and the mom moved back to Japan. The son (early 20's) inherited the house. He rents the house to other young guys, and he lives in the garage. He also works and there's nobody home during the day. The band starts up anytime after 3pm and is rattling my windows by 5pm and thankfully they knock off around 9pm and spend 45 minutes grabassing in the driveway. I watch tv with the headphones on - I go into a room on the other end of the house to answer the phone - etc. etc... I myself was a roadie in my middle teens twice for 2 different bands. So I kinda understand and I think it's really cool they have a band and all. I don't want to be the asshole next door, but shits get'n old, y'know? Back in the day finding ways to insulate the garage was a DEFCON5 priority for our band (and the parents who owned the house) These guys sound like they're right outside my window. And aside from that, I don't really appreciate their "head bang'n" style, but that's not my concern. I understand I'm an "old fart" now. No problem. This shit has been tolerated for a year non stop and I'm thinking by now it's not gonna blow over anytime soon. So here's what I got in mind. I'll dip some zig-zag's in some qwiso and roll about 5-6 joints and wander over there and just start lighting up and passing one to the right and another to the left. While we're chill'n I'll work into the conversation the concept of insulating the garage. Of course it's gonna require some cash investment on their part, but I'd be totally satisfied seeing the project moving forward a paycheck at a time. And I fully intend to thank them for turning their shit off at 9pm. I've never had to do this before so I'm asking if you all think I'd get any positive results with this approach? Think I'm just wasting my dope? Anyone got a better idea? Or add to this one? And don't say call the cops and let them deal with it. Then nobody wins. I have a long standing, deeply embedded prejudice against cops and wouldn't so much as wish one of them bad luck with my last dieing breath and sure don't want any of them to know me.
