I love opening the windows in my house and letting the warm (coldish) summer breeze air out the old lady smell.
But I live in a pretty active neighbourhood with lots of noises, so as I compiled this list of the most annoying sounds I hear in my neighbourhood starting with the least annoying.
Feel free to add any, or make up your own order.
Neighbours fighting – so I don’t actually mind hearing the neighbs argue, because A) it doesn’t happen all that often, and B) it’s juicy! Duh.
Skateboards – Peterborough has the most skateboarders per capita than any other city I have ever been too. That’s a made-up fact, but seriously there are A LOT of people who board.
Lawn mowing – if I imagine that a lawn mower is actually a motor boat, I can distract myself from it’s annoying powers.
Hammering – do I really need to explain why this is obnoxious?
Drilling – see above
Sirens – unfortunately, I hear these a lot.
Dogs barking – I honestly think there are more dogs in my hood than people, and sometimes I feel that there is a constant wall of sound that is just a bunch of woofs.
What are some annoying noises you hear in your neighbourhood?
