Why do noisy kids have to come and play outside MY house? Why can't they go and be loud outside their own house at 9pm? My cul-de-sac (populated by lovely quiet retired couples, no children in sight) has become 'the' place for kids with scooters and skateboards to come and clatter about and screech loudly. They are here ALL day, disappearing presumably to be fed, and then appearing again immediately afterwards. They are no trouble really, and I know that things could be worse - at least they are not in hoodies and knocking back cans of cider - but it's still irritating. Where are their parents? Some of them are as young as 8 or 9 years old. Surely they should be at least getting ready for bed at home? Grumble, moan, grumble, moan.
