We've talked to the kid. We've talked to the kid's mother. The police have been called. Still it continues.
How do we get the stupid, undisciplined, brat of a 17-year old kid across the street and two bleeding doors away to turn down his bleeping stereo and keep the fool thing at a decent level? I can hear it in my own home, with my doors and windows shut and my TV on. Today, it woke up J from his nap, it was so loud. I phone the police, but they are usually busy with more pressing stuff and they can't catch him at it. They talked to him once and showed him what an acceptable level would be, but he turned it back up after they left.
I swear, if his mother were a capable parent, we wouldn't be having this problem. But she is evidently completely incompetent as a mother, and she can't control any aspect of her child's behavior whatsoever. (Woman, if you're reading this and you think I'm insulting you, well do something to change my perception of you, 'cause clearly everything I'm saying here is true.)
So I'm taking suggestions. They can be serious or comedic. How do I get that stereo turned down?????
