Buried Emotions

Unfair! I can do whatever I want there and not be murdered for it but even the slightest thing I do here is being thrown back at my face! It’s totally unfair – when part of it ain’t my fault!
I don’t know what sins I have committed in the past to deserve this kind of punishment. For someone who dislikes the screams and noises that children make to be surrounded by it on a daily basis, it is nerve-wrecking and annoying. The worst part would be if the parents are lackadaisical about it…

So, before you complain to my face about it as well, allow me to explain some points. Number one, I’m also being pushed to my breaking point over the incessant screams but what can I do about it? It’s not like I can go over to the children and threaten them with a be-quiet-or-I’ll-slap-you. We both know that neither one of us is in no position to do that. I can’t complain to the parents either but maybe since you know the children so well, you could perhaps advise them to tone down their voices, especially when it’s late into the night and spare everyone else the misery?

You might want to cut that lady with the four-legged ones a slack. Don’t continue banging the door at the lady’s face either because the day will come when she’ll really bang – no, damage would be the right word – the door at your face in retaliation for whatever you’ve done to her.

It’s only a matter of time.

It’s not like the four-legged one’s barking is as incessant as the children. The lady doesn’t like the barking either and if she can silence it easily, it will be winter here. When she allows him to bark away, she fears that it'll anger us but when she screams at it to be quiet, it refuses and instead barks louder. As much as I dislike the barks, I’ve accepted it with a pinch of salt. There’s no way around that…. we can either accept the screams and barking or ignore it, which doesn't really leave us with a beneficial choice, does it?

  1. Oh noise pollution - yuck. Sometimes I just want to find a piece of land away from everything and become self sufficient.

    1. Hi there! I have that feeling from time to time. The countryside is definitely the best place to be in with not much noise pollution and fresher, cleaner air.

      Too bad the land prices have gone ... exorbitant. =(
