    I can’t sleep so have come into the back garden & due to the wind the wind chimes are chiming like a tinkly orchestra. Personally I like it but it got me thinking what the neighbours think of them. Think there is 3 sets out there.

    Who else has wind chimes? Do you like them?

  5. Don't like them. Have enough with screeching birds and a neighbour who sings loudly every morning and night.

    Winds chimes are evil and an anti-social menace. :mad:

    They should be banned, with prison time for people who have them.

    I like them whenever I’ve heard them at festivals but I’ve never thought of actually getting them and I’d spare a thought for my neighbours

    No. It would weaken my position of rage against the christian church, when they do bell-ringing on a Thursday night. :mad:

    I don’t mind the bells.

    Local noises I object to:
    Next doors skitty grandson revving his fucking moped.
    Dogs barking outside incessantly.
    Police helicopters that won’t fuck off.
    The mad chickens up the road that are fucking noisy

    Local noises I don’t mind:
    Music (within reason)
    Church bells
    Kids playing out
    Next door (other side) practicing instruments

    One of my neighbours doesn’t have wind chimes, but he does hang teapots off of branches in his garden. No one knows why.

    The moped, musical instruments, chickens, and teapot gardens, all join mine in a circle that meets in the middle. I like that, there’s loads of birds. My gardens the worst kempt but I’m hopefully changing that this summer.

    I’m too deaf to hear them. Same with car alarms or anything like that.

    Are they annoying? Aww, too bad, suckers.

    I’ve got some tinkly high ones and bamboo deep ones. I like them. It’s a soothing calming thing

    I’ve doubled down on chime sounds. Got a Ring video doorbell and every time I open the front door I get a tinkle on my phone :D

    I'd like some bamboo ones, and a garden.

    Mum has always been a bit overly fond of them to the extent she's hung a bloody huge bunch of shells in the middle of the kitchen door of her flat which leads to mild concussion for visitors. :hmm:

    The barking dogs in both side neighbours gardens probably trump my lovely clanking tinkling chimes

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    A colleague once had to deal with a neighbour dispute that involved 'garden noise'. It was a water feature :hmm: bloke upstairs claimed the gurgling of the water feature woke him up or kept him awake - caused all sorts of fuss - I think it went to mediation, may have gone to court - eventually an agreement was made that the water feature owner would only turn it on between 9am and 10pm. If it was turned on at 8.58am or still on at 10.01pm, the bloke upstairs would send :mad: emails to my colleague - he would sometimes be greeted with dozens of them in the morning, plus recordings of the 'noise'.

    We should just do away with all noise making garden things :mad:

    our neighbour across the road had 5 or 6 sets of the bamboo ones in their front garden, just looked out the window to see exactly how many and they now don't have any and their fence has blown over. i thought it was windy out :D
    i hope they come back, they sound mental when they all get going.

    I had one briefly then realised it was probably too loud for the neighbours, so moved it to the back door. Unfortunately this meant that when the chickens heard it they'd know I was coming to feed them so started squawking to tell me to hurry up, so now it lies forlornly against the window unable to chime.

    fucthest8 What the zarking fardwark was that?

    One of my favourite things, makes me all nostalgic. Don't care if it's loud and sweary either, always was when I was a kid. (Not the really little ones, obviously).

    Last year in all the snow, was lovely watching all the various kids - and a couple of dads - see how fast they could get down the one slopey bit of road. Lots of shouting and laughing, lots of proper belly laughs, lovely.

    (E2A: and then some tears, of course :D)

    You can fuck off with your wind chimes though. Badgers has it right

    You fucking annoying antisocial cunts. Rip that shit out of your garden and give all your poor fucking neighbours a rest before the summer comes.

    How would you like it if I stood outside your bedroom window and honked a load of annoying sound sout all night.

    very much this. they may be delightful if you are sitting outside on a warm summers eve, but the rest of the time, no. and i'd be thoroughly pissed off if a neighbour had them.
