Welcome to my refreshed Monday Peeve! Unburden yourself of an annoyance and you’ll feel better afterward. Or not. Complain in my comments or crab in your own post. Doesn’t have to be on a Monday. You do you.
I’m writing this on Sunday night, and tomorrow is July 4, a holiday off from work for many Americans (though not all). I’m not going to complain (again) about fireworks as they actually haven’t been that bad this year, though ideally there would be zero amateur ones going off in a time of drought. No, I’m here to bitch about the people yelling in the pool/jacuzzi. The pool closes at 10pm every night, no exception for holidays. But for some reason, tonight some folks have decided that they don’t have to obey the rules, and they’re still downstairs yelling and drinking now at 10:30pm.
Have you ever noticed that the more people drink, the louder they get? It’s a strange phenomenon. I’m not going to pretend I want to go to sleep, because it’s too early for me, but others might. Rulebreakers never care about inconvenience to others though; they’re simply all about their own selfish pleasures. There is no real enforcement of the pool rules, only an honor system, where the HOA supposes that people won’t want to be assholes to their neighbors. We have a lot of elderly people here and some babies too. There are also working folks, such as cops and nurses, who might actually have to get some sleep tonight in order to be on the job bright and early tomorrow. (Note: I don’t know for a fact that there are cops or nurses living here, but there could be.)
There may be a compelling reason to break a rule, but partying loudly into the night and disturbing an entire community because tomorrow is the 4th isn’t it. Naturally, I expect the same inconsiderate jerks to do it again tomorrow night (tonight), when I will need to go to sleep at a reasonable hour and get up for work on Tuesday.
