Default Nasty people next door

The people next door have a swimming pool ,about 20 feet from my house.There kids get in the pool at 9am and stay in till 7pm . They never stop screaming. I asked nicely if they would ask the kids to quit down, reply, will think about it. What should I do?

Not live 20' from a swimming pool if you don't want to hear kids swimming.

I take it you aren't (or never will be) fun grandpa.

I have the same issue, only the neighbor has a trampoline. Teens come over and jump on that thing till 10:30 at night. I too went over, I got a look of death from the mother. She told her kid to quiet down, but her friends continued to raise hell. I don't think there is much we can do....Noise ordinance is till 11:00 p.m., and they are on their own property. It really sucks.............

Kids playing is "nasty people?"
Sounds like normal kids to me. Do they ever come on your yard?

It's called No Consideration for your neighbor.

No kidding. Sounds like they are waiting until after coffee time, and barely infringing on cocktail hour.

Consideration = living line you are in a monastery? Sounds like the OP did not take into account that he was living on a postage stamp sized lot in a residential neighborhood. Kids playing, along with the noises that they make is 100% normal and to be expected during reasonable hours, with the exception of in geriatric retirement neighborhoods.

For hours after dark is a bit rude, but they are stopping at 7:00 PM. That is perfectly reasonable.
