As I tried to fall asleep last night I was kept awake by noisy neighbours.. I wondered how they would like being kept up past 1:30 am, 2:30 am, 3:30 am still going at 4 am when the police finally showed up to tell them to go to sleep or be finedÖ
This happened last year when I had my sick son with me and kept calling the police on what was a very busy night for them. I could tell I was not the only person as others were shouting outside and a screaming match was on making matters even worse..
OK so you say, let the kids have some fun.. But these are not kids.. They are older adults who get physically upset when they are kept awake by others.. And their fun is taking away from my right to sleep. Am I sore that I canít party like them? Hardly as used too many years ago BUT never kept anyone up or had the police show up at our door. At 11 pm the music went off are we would talk in a low voice. Those who got mouthy ( no RESPECT ) got sent home.
I have also noticed many people just going out of their way to be spiteful lately.. I had been thinking perhaps it was the economy but when I thought about it, it started way before the crash, so no excuse there..
Perhaps we need to instill in our kids a better value of kindness and fellow mankind spirit.. We can talk about getting rid of wars all we want but if we canít even act civil to each other in person, forums and or families, why bother getting rid of the things that will destroy mankind. We are already well underway on that path.
I guess I miss the days when I was younger and people cared about others. Perhaps it is why we have a population that cannot trust anyone anymore. I know trust and respect are earned but people seem not to care about trying to build any of that anywhere anymore..
That's my gripe lately.. I guess maybe I feel like Rodney Dangerfield.. No Respect..
