Why are neighbours so ignorant

Post by skyhawk »

Only considering themselves

Now I have to tolerate wind chimes when out in the garden

I have never considered sound to be an essential part of astronomical observation with the slight exception of possible sound from fireballs but I can understanding the persisted jangling of wind chimes, especial during the current very windy weather, can disturb any sense of peace during skywatching. However I do not think that 'ignorant' is the appropriate description, perhaps 'annoying' would be better. maf

Especially when like me as you see in my signature I am Autistic

Ignorant of others !, lack of thought/connsideration

I think `ignorant' is the correct term, in the sense of uncaring of others. I have suffered the same problem, people who consider it their `right' to invade other people's piece and quiet, putting a large wind chime near to my house.

If I put up a loud wind chime and a neighbour complained I would take it down.

'Ignorant' means uneducated, and unaware according to my dictionary. Perhaps they are unaware or ignorant of the fact that that damned windchime does annoy the neighbours. If you point out that it drives you nuts and destroys your peace and then they do nothing about it, that is another matter entirely! regards maf
