Living Next Door to the ‘Junglist Massive’


Yo ! Yo! …Word up!   Booyaka!

In our suburban dwelling in the ‘lovely part of Hemel Hempstead’ we are a far cry from the hustle and bustle of city life…..or are we?

Since moving to our new home, we have tolerated the weekend antics of our neighbour- the 38 year old -‘coke head’ with a mis-spent youth, and sufficient time spent doing ‘bird’.

Of course we have never had a conversation with him, but due to his uncouth and ‘less than dulcet’ tones that resonate at 100 decibels down the street, we know about his time inside, how he’s been sacked from every job he’s had, how his girlfriend likes it in the bedroom (and believe me we’ve heard her fulfil  those fantasies) and the details of his bank account….pin number etc.

We live next door to a moron of the highest calibrations, who has shared much more of his life with us than our tiny minds can comprehend. A truly annoying oik that speaks at one volume and has no respect for himself , let alone the people he lives alongside.

If that wasn’t enough… we are treated to (on a weekly basis) a ‘full -on’ club night, whereby he sets up his decks, opens his windows, grabs his vuvuzela and continues to DJ to his crowd of ….nobody….(except maybe a few hedgehogs and stray cats that happen to be nearby) until the early hours.

Now David Guetta he is not…in fact he’s more of a fatboy slim (without the slim) and his girlfriend rocks up in her “Fat Bird’s uniform” (leggings and a mid-drift top), and they party until the break of dawn (I think her name is Kelly, not Dawn).

Now please don’t get me wrong, I do love a bit of a boogie when the mood takes me, but please let me watch the Strictly final before you inflict ‘old school Jungle’ on the entire neighbourhood. And do we really need a commentary in between tunes?…you don’t have an audience you idiot….and you are 38…get a life!

Last night was the straw that broke the camel’s back….apart from a very small interlude when he played ‘Here comes the Hotstepper’ and ‘Lady, hear me tonight’, which I quite enjoyed, the music went on from 8.30pm until 5 am this morning at full volume and with the bass vibrating through our bedroom walls, I needed to do something.

I googled online, on how to make a complaint to my local council and rest assured, after I have completed my ‘noise diary’ he will be receiving an abatement notice….but as revenge is a dish best served cold I thought I would give him a taste of his own medicine.

So here I am this Sunday morning, windows wide open, stereo on full pelt…..but not giving him a selection of classics from his favoured genre…oh no…we have a medley of Steps, S Club 7, and the best of the musicals from Calamity Jane to Les Miserables.

Enjoy your ‘come-down’ you big twat…..Happy Sunday!

    Judy Garland is also good for early morning concerts. As is Ethel Merman. They carry.

    Let’s hope – Don’t stop movin’ – actually had the opposite effect. You have my sympathies.

      Nothing like a bit of camp to piss the neighbours off

    OH SNAP! Nice payback! Are you still living next to this gem? Is it an apartment or can you hear him a house away?! Worst nightmare neighbors!!

      It’s what we call a semi-detached house in The Greatness of Britain 🇬🇧 … 2 houses 🏡 🏡 joined together. Yes we still live next to the oik !


      • fattymccupcakes March 30, 2017 / 8:47 pm

        Ahhh yes! Those seem to be pretty popular over there. That’s like a condo or townhouse here. Are they usually built well, or can you here him when you’re inside?! What is an oik??


      • The Gay Stepdad March 30, 2017 / 9:03 pm

        You can hear everything! Including him seeing to his Mrs, for her extra special weekly treat!

        An oik is an uncouth or obnoxious person…. according to google lol

        I love it!! It’s close enough to oink to look right, too!

    Oh my goodness, I laughed so much! You have a great way with words. Like you, we have a next door neighbour who has his rave nights AND friends over. We’ve previously overheard them talking about where to ‘score some drugs’. Then, a couple of years ago we were woken by the sounds of the police raiding the house and the intense smell of cannabis seeping into our spare bedroom! Things have been quieter but I’m not sure if it’s because he’s gone to prison!

      Ha ha , I’m hoping that this one next door to me gets put away soon, he must be due another stint any time now!


  7. SickChristine June 17, 2017 / 3:14 pm

    Dying laughing!!! I love your revenge. I can’t wait to read more because I know there will be more. Hahahaha!

    Since I’ve been around the “same block,” they’ll probably have you complain directly to him first. Hope he’s not into pipebombs….
