3rd shifters and your neighbors

Anybody on here work 3rds and have assholes for neighbors. They know you work 3rds and just don't care. I swear if it isnt someone sitting in the driveway listening to there subwoofer for an hour it's someone on a quad going past my house 20 times. Just had some new neighbors move in a couple weeks ago and today in the middle of the day they start setting of fireworks....I think i'm about ready to lose it

Playing Devil's advocate here...

It's one of those downsides to sleeping during the day while people are actually out DOING things that make noise.

Remember that there are laws out there about making too much noise later in the evening...if you're trying to take the retribution angle on this.

Ear plugs are your friend. It's what I did when I used to work late shifts doing computer work over night.

I understand that too, we sleep with 3 floor fans to try and keep the outside noise out.

Move out to the country on a 100 acre farm. It's not your neighbors fault that you work at night.

I worked third shift for about a year and 2nd and 1/2 shift (might as well have been 3rd) for another year. I sleep like a rock so it worked for me. I'd usually get home have some breakfast, watch the todays show and fall asleep. It would take a bomb to wake my @$$ up.

I get home around 2am, and in my old apt right across from the grocery store it would get kinda loud...then with the stupid ass neighbor in the next apt always blasting music in the next room from my bedroom.....I put an end to that by going and buying a nice big stereo, hooking it to my computer, and playing my entire Itunes library.....while I was on vacation. It was still playing when I got back 5 days later.
