I have new neighbors.

And I hate them.
Almost every night, I like to go out on my balcony, have a drink, smoke my pipe, and read for an hour or two. I do this at 11pm usually.
My new neighbors are across the street, directly facing me. For some reason they open all of their front windows and doors at night, so nothing is muffled.
They have a dog. Its a Scotty, I think. Haven't got a good look at it. They only seem to let it out at night. It barks... annoying, but I can deal. But whenever the dog barks, they yell at it. It barks a lot. They also seem to yell at the dog whenever it comes into the same room as they are in.
They have kids. Again, fine - it seems they have at least 2, if not 3 kids, ranging in age from 8 to 16. There is definitely at least an older teenage girl and a younger boy. Other kids there may be siblings or friends. The kids yell and scream at each other. For some reason, their parents think this is acceptable between 11 and 1am, the latter usually being about the time I go in.
The parents are loud. They scream and yell just to have a conversation. And when the kids are yelling and screaming, and they happen to cross the path of one of the parents, the parents yell at the kids. Not always to chastise them... that's just how they talk. And they have people over, all the time. All of them - and their friends
are all loud too, adults and kids alike.
Once upon a time, I used to unwind in the evening by enjoying a glass of scotch, and smoke my pipe by reading. Only now, I have new neighbors.
I hate my new neighbors.
