    Same here -- at our apartment complex. Right outside our window. Quite lovely when one needs to make a phone call, but can't because of the noise, never mind that there's a clause in the rental agreement to the effect of not disturbing the "quiet enjoyment" of the other residents. There's a huge bay, and even an ocean, with many big beaches all in the open -- and less than five minutes away -- where the little screamers can yell to their hearts' content. Take 'em there. Uggghhhhh!!!

    Luckily, both of the places we're going to on vacation have adults-only pools. I may never come home . . .

They're too busy trying to kiss up to the buyers that they're disregarding the sellers.

    My second point of gripe is: Parents at graduations. I was at my brother's today, when they started handing out the awards, their was this line of embarrassing parents.They were whistling, hooting, hollering, screaming and in general making a$$es of themselves whenever their kid got an award. I was telling the parents behind me that all the noise makers needed was a bullhorn(they thoroughly agreed). It's a 5th grade graduation for goodness sake! Calm down! I can now see why they ban some kids from graduating: they're parents.

    My son will be graduating HS next year and after all we've been through, the frustration, tears, finally finding educators who were interested in teaching to someone who learns "outside of the box", I'm planning on nothing less than a marching band, 21 gun salute and quite possibly a flyover by the Blue Angels!

    Have a great time on your vacations! Soak up some sun for me and enjoy those pools!

    Kids having fun in a pool doesn't bother me. We have a lake behind our house and the beach access is about 50 yards away. It's supposed to be for residents only but that rule is never enforced and we're subjected to strange adults coming to our door and asking to use our phone, bathroom etc......They come up for the day and blare their music, scream profanities at their kids and wander into our yard. I always have more of a problem with adults who should know better.

    Isn't it amazing what you learn about environments that you move into AFTER you've already committed? I know soooo much about what I won't accept in another residence after buying my house. I always find myself wondering, "What was I thinking??"

    Really--yes, I live in a little shack house, but every time I came to look at it, it was pouring down rain. The listing agent told me that it was very quiet, mostly old folks, etc. on the street. No, it's full of hootin and hollerin rednecks on weekends, kids on 4 wheelers on the street riding, packs of bored kids looking for things to get into, and even a pack of ten to 15 Basset hounds 100 yards from me!

    One thing that I did learn was to look at property in as many different types of weather as possible! My girlfriend didn't, and she bought a garage that needs a sump pump. I tried to tell her....

    The thing is, you can know everything there is to know about a property, but things can change. When we moved into our last house, the neighbours had, I think, three kids. Subsequently she was pregnant every single year. By the time I finally talked Mr. Rattus into buying another house and moving whether he liked it or not, there were a minimum of 15 kids living next door, plus that noise-making bane of sanity, a basketball net. Thump thump thump, screech, wail, moooommmmmmy, thump, thump, thump.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    The bachelorette people are taking over the board. I really get angry when I try to post while the show is on and I can't because 1500 rabid fans descend on FORT at that time. PLUS almost every single post alludes to the winner (already determined by the sleuths) and it PISSES me off because I want to be surprised!

    end rant, now to get that boy out of BED at the crack of 11AM!
    I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.
