seems like some kids have taken to socilising in the alley behind our flats.. and have been woken up twice this week..at about 1pm..
any ideas how to handle it.. i am on the 4th floor so other flats closer must be disturbed..
its a nuisance. but it wouldnt really warrant ringing the police.. we have had our bikes nicked a few times from a doorway in that are..so ther have been incidents..any idea how to handel it.. if i yell out from the window.. no doubt they wll just come back to aggrivate me...
I think the problem is that at 1 am (I'm figuring 1 pm was a typo) you can't very well get dressed and go out and remonstrate. Maybe take a photo of them on your phone so that you know them the next time you see them and you can then have a word?
One bad idea that should never be put to the test might be a very powerful but discrete water pistol filled with quite cold water, squirted into the alley at around 1am. If one were to take careful aim, the youth wouldn't see which window it emerges from, but they might not come back. Water pistols can be bought for about a tenner on ebay.
This is a very bad idea, presumably because if one were actually to hit somebody, it could be construed as battery! However, I still think it might be effective!
I loved the sponsored adverts attached to this post-they've come up with some helpful suggestions ! I have to own up to anonymously throwing a mug of cold water from a height over a junky who was often injecting himself in front of my block of flats.He never did make a return visit.
