If anyone wants to come down to Stapleford Flight Centre for a London Sightseeing Flight which we operate at weekends to see their neighbourhood from the air (we promise not to cause noise)quote SE1 and we will offer 10% off our price.
Lean in close cause I have a little secret for you.
You live in the centre of one of the busiest cities in the world, theres going to be noise, be it from planes, trains, automobiles or drunk students vomiting loudly on your doorstep.
You could write a stern letter to... someone, demanding a one mile no-fly zone be set up around your flat, so that you dont have to turn the tv up to hear what Mr Jeremy Kyle is saying to that sixteen year old mother of three. I have a feeling they would join me and Mr polar bear up there in a group facepalm though.
You could, if you demand complete silence, move to a polar region. I have a feeling though that you would be whipping the laptop out to post on the local "GLACIER DWELLER" website that one of Mr facepalm bear's relatives is growling too loudly.
Or, you could just accept that having the privalege of living in such a bustling city, means that there will be the odd noise that disturbs your listening to the shipping forecast now and then, and you should think yourself lucky to have a window to close to ease the dreadfull din that prop is making. As you could instead be living in a doorway of the latest store to become victim to the recession, and be woken by the sound of a rat knawing at your earlobe rather than this helicopter or that airplane.
Apologies to anyone who's arsecheeks aren't at this moment compressing a lump of coal into a diamond, but every time I see one of these "noisy helicopter/plane" threads it makes me... Well it makes me facepalm!

To the person who feels that the globe audience were disturbed more than the residents, how selfish and childish was that comment (my dads bigger than your dad). And shouts what is going on here, me me me me me me only I'm important, no one else has any rights.
Get a life please and stop making the forum so boring, or just move back to whatever sleepy hamlet you came from. Or maybe I should move to a sleepy hamlet, I would miss the noise so maybe they'd all make lots just so I feel at home, being as you feel our city should change, would you feel the same in reverse.
