How do we subdue those Killjoys?

Unread postAuthor: Scotty » Mon Jun 18, 2007 3:11 am

Hey guys, any of you got a great idea on how to subdue Killjoys?
I let one round go out of my combustion (1.5ltr) today and like 1 minute later i had the local Killjoy up in my face about letting of crackers, (i have in the past enjoyed a few sky rockets 8) However this was the *only* round i have fired in the past two months (outta my big combustion) I have a young son and it didn't even make him flintch ( Killjoy is three houses away) Anyway he complained about his dogs not liking the boom..blah blah blah.
I am planning on buying a big loud stockwhip just to stir him up-THEY are legal were i live (whips).
Am i over-reacting or should i just pop a cap in ........... :wink:
Any response will recieve nadda.

Peace
Scotty

Instead of antagonising him, why not get him to join in the fun? I find that most killjoys will only persist in their attitude until you let them have a go, then it's "phoar! wicked! can I have another go?"

You could suggest making him one as a bone/ball launcher for his dogs, now that's what I call exercise :D

That's a Kickass idea 'bout the ball or bone launcher i may approach him with that idea.
He seems to be very worried about his dogs, this way they get to excercise AND get used to the sound of the said toy.
Full marks!!

Peace

Where are you from Scotty? Here in the USA we have laws that basicly state between the hours of 9am and 11pm, nobody can legely make you stop the noise your making. It realy all depends on the local laws in your city/town. If Jacks idea don't work, look into the laws and see what they say about noise.

I think jrrdw is right here.
Assuming it's your property, then your neighbour is allowed to request that you reduce the noise levels during daylight hours, but cannot actually force you to (unless the spudgun itself is illegal in that region, in which case he can get the thing confiscated by the police).
Outside of whatever time boundaries they may be, if he asks, then you will have to stop, or face the cops.

But first, try and foster good relations before you tell him that he can't actually do anything about it.

And you should consider that it is possible that his dogs don't like it - my grandmother has a dog that is absolutely terrified of any loud bangs. Even fireworks half a mile off can send him diving under the nearest table quaking.

ive had a similar problem. i was lighting fireworks at my beach house in Indiana (where fireworks are LEGAL) and a 70 something year old ladie came down and was swearing at me and telling me to stop. i fixed it by lighting off 4 superman bottle rockets (supermans are M80 bottle rockets) and i never heard from her again.

if i where you i would try to make friends with this killjoy even though i wouldnt since we're dealing with spud guns though it would be an exception. and makeing a low power tennis ball launcher is a great idea. thats what im doing for my neighbors in Indiana since all of them have a few dogs.

Check your local laws, but like jrrdw and joannaardway said, he can request but not force you to stop making noise. So just ignore him, your not doing anything wrong (unless there's some restriction where you live), and hes just making an ass of himself, though his dogs not liking the noise is a legitimate concern, they'll get used to it probably.

ps not all *killjoys* are the same lol

The galling thing is that at least, you're a teenager, so it's accepted, nay expected that you have this sort of mindset. i'm 24, should have grown out of it by now :?

How glad I am I don't have that particular problem...

In general, the dogs probably will get used to it... the dog above mentioned in my earlier post, has improved since the problems a few years back, but care does need to be taken on walks, as he may well bolt at the sound of a nearby shotgun or bird scarer.

If the diplomatic path fails, make it sound as if you think he is being unreasonable restricting your activities (rather than you sounding like a jerk), and tell him that he can't actually legally prevent you.

If he gets persistent after that, just don't answer the door if he comes to complain. Or if he comes into your garden to complain, tell him (politely) to leave your property. Trespass at any time is a crime, making a loud noise during the day isn't.
