A bit of a strange one... but i bet alot of you have had the same happen...
A bit long winded im sorry,
But i would love to know how you lot would deal with this problem.
Basicaly At my other halfs house there is a shared drive ( with the next door neigbour only ) its long enough and wide enough to put 4 cars on easy ... so we do, The issue isnt next door. The problem is the kids ( between 6 and about 12) from the estate that have decided our drive is the local play ground.
The estate is basicaly 2 big culdisacs (sp* sorry) non of the kids actualy live within 4 or 5 houses of ours .
Over the last week or so they have taken to playing football against the house ( very near our cars which we love and care for like an extra 2 kids )
Ive been to the door a number of times telling them to please leave our drive and go and play outside their own homes.
This hasnt worked and since the ball hit one of our cars ( its a leather football ) ive become more annoyed, On friday our baby daughter was in bed and ... BANG BANG BANG as the ball hits the house. so i get up, and tell them to bugger off outside their own houses , they look at me like im in the wrong and laugh. I Say bugger off or i will take you to your mums and dads and see what they have to say... They finaly move ( for now)
By the lovely power of facebook ( and the fact females must gossip) im now the big bad monster of the estate.
My mrs explained... im angry as its not their home and who will pay for any damage?
But im still an angry monster who has aparently threatened to beat up children .
Have i handeled this all wrong?
For that matter is there a right way when the parents seem to see no wrong in their childrens actions
