Yo, Neighbors, I have an 8 Month Old!
Praise to the holiday that people stimulate the economy by spending thousands of dollars to blow things up! Ok well to most people you don’t spend thousands of dollars of on fireworks, but in our neighborhood people spend thousands (as reported from my neighbor who said that one of the guys in our area spent $4000 on fireworks). These aren’t your quiet fireworks either. These are louder than the average one, some that just go up in the air and have a loud boom, so loud in fact that it wakes me up and gives me flash backs to college, waking up and yelling at the upstairs neighbors for being loud.
I don’t mind them shooting off fireworks at all, this is after all the birthday of the U.S.A. and should be celebrated, I understand that, but the holiday falls on July 4th, not July 3rd, July 2nd or even July 1st. Our neighbors on July 2nd were shooting fireworks well into the night, again I don’t see anything wrong with this, or I didn’t until I had a baby.
They scared the chipmunk. He got very clingy to mom and wouldn’t let go, burying his head in her. Reports from my lovely wife say that he wasn’t able to sleep because of them. Ok, I understand up until a certain time but shooting them off at 11:30pm when you have to be at work the next day, seriously? What do you do for a living that you can just blow up $4000 worth of fireworks?
It was a long weekend with the chipmunk, as he couldn’t sleep with people lighting off a roll of 1000 black cats. I just wish that some of our neighbors would have be even slightly considerate of people in general instead of shooting fireworks at midnight.
