    Ive seen this dude I think. Is he always way overdressed for the weather? He does indeed ride like a twonk.

    Best thing about that pic is the optimistic multi pack of Spontex sponges on the work surface. As if!

    If you can stand it totally ignore. That’s what we did and ours finally realised her yowling made no difference. I guess it depends how tenacious they can be.

    A flip to this - in the interest of balance: My downstairs neighbour has bought a Pomeranian. I've had a look and apparently this is about the least suitable dog to leave alone in a flat... they hate it and go mental. He obviously didn't consider this and since his wife started going to work, the little furball has been mounting a sustained campaign of wolf howls and yaps all day. My wife and I often work from home and it's such a downer.

    Anyway - we were chatting with him about some other house related stuff and just generally hanging out the other day. I mentioned the problem with the dog and he seemed genuinely concerned about it. Said he regretted getting it and had already tried to give it to his Mum. It's been a bit better since then (dunno what he's done to calm the dog down)... but to be honest - just knowing he's sympathetic and trying to sort it more than halves the stress as far as I'm concerned.

    I honestly think that unreasonable, selfish noise pollution is the absolute top of the list of dick moves. I watched someone very politely ask our already belligerently rat arsed neighbours to turn her dreadful dirge down last weekend. The woman in question waited til the complainant had popped back behind her own fence before flicking her the bird and turning it up more.

    I gave it a minute then added my request to can it. Piss head shouted that it was The afternoon and not late so not a problem. I reasoned that I shouldn’t have to listen to her shite in my house drowning my own shite out whatever the time of day. Every other neighbour in the area watched the confrontation and basically agreed with me. She turned it down in the end but I hate confrontation and so I was well anxious. Proper knocks the idea of sanctuary on the head!

    Know this: you have most sane, reasonable human being’s sympathy.

    The only thing I can think I’d do in your position is assemble as many neighbours in a concerted long term campaign to return order through noise complaints and contacting offending landlords.

    Utterly garbage mood this morning was well and truly lifted by a bike family. Was riding past a grown up human and two mini humans in victoria park. They were playing Sympathy For The Devil on a speaker as they tootled along so as I passed I joined in with the obligatory backing vocal “woo woo”s. Big human responded with a loud woo woo of its own.

    I’m going in!

    And yes. Batteries are my general go to but not on the big cutty stuff.

    There is an exploded diagram and yeah it's crossed my mind. My skill has never extended to much beyond basic home electrics so I guess I'm a bit nervous about ending up with a lapful of now redundant spring clips.
