    If I live in the country in a cottage, I should not be surprised if a Cockerel should wake me up. (And yep, he does! )

    However, if a resident of a block of flats decided to keep a Cockerel on a balcony then his/her neighbours would have every right to complain.

    If someone lives in a house in a field ten miles from the nearest neighbour and plays their drum and bass at full volume -who cares?

    But if a resident of a block of flats plays the same music at the same volume, everyone cares!

    The problem is that some people cannot BE neighbours. They have a problem grasping that behaviour that might be appropriate in one set of circumstances might not be appropriate in another set of circumstances.

    The are at best sociopathic as they can't conceive of how their behaviour might impinge on other people.

    Slightly off-topic example of this type of thinking: A burglar burgled hundreds of homes without getting caught.

    But he stopped being a burglar overnight. Why? Because he was burgled.

    He felt sickened by the fact that someone had touched his property and had stolen some of his property. Then he said that he thought: "This is what my victims go through! I can't put anyone else through this!"

    He had not been able to concider the other person's point of view, until that point.

    its a 'me me me' society we are living in where the individual thinks he has more rights than the community as a whole.

    and a lot of the time the individuals 'right' is given priority as we see time and time again whereby NFH get evicted yet they manage to get given 'last chances' or are rehoused by local authorities/HAs elsewhere.

      You are right, of course. It was Mrs T who said: "THere is no such thing as society." :cry:

        Been chatting to Nice Lady who lives opposite me - (all the neighbours in our cul-de-sac seem to be retired) and she said NFH behaved like he owned the place as soon as he moved in. She's been v. supportive and also offered to appear as witness in court (injunction/trespass etc.) It's quite a 'respectable' neighbourhood and I don't think the cul-de-sac would put up with NFH for long if he carried out his sociopathic crimes against them!

        When NFH threatened me the other night (when I challenged him for throwing rubbish on my property at night - how dare I??) his response to everything I said was 'I've got rights!' It seems to me that you have to be a coward, a bully and completely out of touch with reality to be a NFH - we've all got rights, but we've all got responsibilities too.

        I would be mortified if I infringed on any of my neighbours' properties - it's never ocurred to me to throw stuff at NFH's back garden - where did they learn to be so completely hypocritical?

        Grrr! :nfh1:
