His Elderly Neighbors Constantly Complained About His “Noisy” Kids, but When He Suggested They Should Move If They Didn’t Like It, They Called Him Rude

A man recently asked for some advice about how he should have handled his neighbors when they complained about his noisy kids. Here’s what happened.

They Bought a Nice House

After years of working hard and saving up, a man and his wife bought a nice house in Los Angeles. It had a reasonable yard, and they even had space for some chickens.

The couple didn’t live in their home alone; as well as the chickens, they had three boys: six-year-old twins and a nine-year-old.

The Kids Made Lots of Noise

The man said, “They are kids. They are loud, but not screaming loud. They love playing in the yard and at the park across the street.”

It Was a Quiet Area

The couple lived on a quiet street with a lot of retired people around them. The man said, “So few people, especially those with kids, can afford a house in that area, so it’s a bunch of retired boomer snitches with security cameras at their front porch.”

The man’s next-door neighbors, in particular, were quite happy to complain—a lot—about how much noise the kids made.

The man was surprised at the number of complaints because his kids weren’t often at home; they liked playing in the park across the street more than their own yard, and they also had a lot of afterschool clubs and sports they were involved in.

The man didn’t want to fall out with his neighbors, so he tried to explain all of this and let them know the children were just having fun. But the neighbors didn’t want to hear; they told him that they needed to follow the rules of the neighborhood—they’d been there for 40 years, so they should know.

Nothing really changed. The kids kept playing in the park, and the neighbors kept complaining. One day things escalated when the neighbor suggested the man and his family move out and go live somewhere without any neighbors to bother.

He Said It Was Illogical

The neighbor went on to say that moving to that specific, quiet area was illogical when the man knew his kids were noisy.

The endless complaints irritated the man. He told his neighbor that perhaps he should be the one to move instead.

This upset the neighbors hugely, making things even more tense. The man said, “I caught some flack for being rude to an older person, but I don’t think I was.”

Was He Wrong?

Was the man wrong to ignore his neighbor’s complaints and then tell them to move, or should he have done something about the noise his kids were making?

The Internet Responded

One person said, “The fact that their kids have grown and moved out doesn’t mean no other children are allowed to move in.”

But another commented, “If most of the neighborhood is complaining and people can hear your kids in the park from inside their homes, your kids are too loud.”
