Neighbour's noisy basketball

Postby Boom Kid on Fri Apr 13, 2018 6:05 pm

My neighbours over the road have just erected a basketball hoop on the side of their house next to their driveway for their son who is about 12 to play, well basketball.

Why they couldn't put it in their back garden I don't know and because of where it is the basketball echo's when it hits the ground.

The thud thud thud thud thud of the basketball being bounced is doing my head in as it is other neighbours and there is no way I fancy putting up with that all spring and summer.

Any idea's on how I can retaliate would be greatly appreciated.

Or perhaps I'm being a miserable b*stard?

You'll need a darning needle, some +20lb fishing line and some step ladders.

Under the cover of darkness, nip across and stitch the basket together. :scarfer:

The novelty will soon wear off. If not, put him in a wheelchair, it will then.......... :)

Challenge him to a game of 1 on 1, then when he accepts, tell him you meant MMA, not basketball, and kick the **** out of him.

I have just had a thought - what if I get myself a basketball and bounce it continuously on the road outside their house just before dark. Good eh ?

Bit unimaginative.

Why not buy a Tuba and play it tunelessly for 16 hours a day? Outside their house.
