It’s Easter. And we all know what that means for those of use lucky enough to live within range of the BOOOM BOOM BOOM THUD THUD THUD of
Easterfest EasterPEST – nonstop NOISE from Friday. From morning til at least 11pm. This happens every year and the local council refuses to do anything about it. (I will NOT dignify it with a !^@*% link, it’s an allegedly Xtian Rock festival “Drug and alcohol free” – yeah, right). Vote for change this coming local government election, fellow 4350 residents!
Last night Mr Beloved measured the noise from our back yard at 10:15 pm at 74.1dB – to give you an idea, lawnmowers are only allowed to be 75 dB. Calling the “hotline” is pointless since it is – SURPRISE! managed by the event. As Mr Beloved has noted, it’s like calling the fox to report a disturbance in your henhouse. Calling the council is just as useless: they measure the sounds levels AT THE PARK where the event is being held, not HERE where the noise is a problem!!!
Add to that the noise from Drunketta & Sullenteena’s stereo next door and I literally CANNOT HEAR MYSELF THINK. And Little Djuana Belting ‘s SCREAMING on top of that – not that they can hear him over the stereo…
…I can’t do uni work, I can’t read, I can’t sleep (since our bedroom is less than 3 metres from Drunketta’s house.) There’s no point calling the police (since they take hours to come, there’s no guarantee the noise will still be happening when they do get here…) so I just have to suck it up. And take my special p1lls that stop me from having a complete and utter meltdown EVEN THOUGH THAT’S WHAT I REALLY WANT TO DO RIGHT NOW BECAUSE I AM SO FUCKING OVER THIS NOISE.
And before you ask – no, we can’t go away for Easter -we have no money and we have animals to look after, And why should we be driven out of our home by the stupid Easterpesters? ARRRRRRRRRRRRGH! There’s more arguments to be made there but I just can’t do it right now – I am just DONE.
