A man and his family had recently met their new neighbors, who had just moved in next door. The neighbors had been friendly enough to invite the man and his family to their wedding, yet although they didn’t attend, this wedding would soon get them off on the wrong foot.
A Friendly Invitation
The man explained how his first impressions of his new neighbors were positive. “They seemed friendly – when they moved in, they mentioned that they were having a backyard wedding for their daughter,” he recounted. “We were invited but declined due to other commitments.”
Unexpected Pre-Wedding Party
The man had expected somewhat of a commotion on the Sunday due to the wedding, but he wasn’t expected antics on the prior Wednesday. “They had a big pre-wedding party with loud music and karaoke,” he recounted.
A Noisy Wednesday
Initially, the man wasn’t too concerned about this pre-party. “Given that they seemed like reasonable people and it was a Wednesday evening, I figured they would shut down the music after 11pm, a bylaw in my area,” he explained.
An Unpleasant Night
However, the pre-party was far from over by 11pm. At around 1am the party was still raging, and the man and his family found themselves unable to sleep from the noise.
A Polite Request
The man decided to take matters into his own hands. He got out of bed, went next door, and in a polite manner, asked his neighbors to lower the volume.
A Dismissive Response
However, contrary to his reasonable first impressions of his neighbors, the man’s request was met with hostility. “I got yelled at, like hard, and have it all on video, thanks to my security system,” he remembered. “The music continued all the way up until 3 a.m.”
A Second Night
To the man and his family’s dismay, the situation repeated itself on the following night. The man, perhaps wary of another confrontation, chose not to voice his concerns.
Seeking Resolution with Bylaw
After another sleepless night, the man decided that he would seek assistance from local authorities, so he contacted the bylaw enforcement office. He reported the ongoing noise issue and mentioned the impending backyard wedding.
Bylaw Requirements Uncovered
To the man’s surprise, he learned that hosting a backyard wedding required a permit, which his neighbors did not possess. Bylaw enforcement informed the man that continuing with the wedding without the necessary permit would result in a significant fine.
Neighbors Face a Dilemma
The neighbors were soon made aware of the permit requirement and the potential consequences by authorities, leaving them with a difficult decision. They had merely two days to secure an alternate venue for the wedding, which they were deeply upset by.
The Man’s Dilemma
Reflecting on his actions, the man questioned whether he had gone too far by involving the authorities. His intention had not been to disrupt their wedding, but rather to encourage more considerate behavior regarding noise. He hadn’t known about the wedding bylaw, and had, in turn, ruined the much-anticipated wedding and ruined his relationship with his new neighbors.
The Internet’s Verdict
The man logged on to his favorite internet forum, writing up his story and asking for opinions, both validating and critical. However, validation was all that he received. “The music stayed on until 3am after you politely asked them to turn it down, and they yelled at you… AND they did it again the next day? Nah man, you’re good – they were super inconsiderate.”
Nobody criticized the man for his actions, despite the extreme result. “They just moved in and are planning a minimum of three parties, ALREADY,” someone pointed out. “You were smart to set the standard of what’s acceptable in your area now, even if it leads to one less friend.”
Everyone believed that the neighbors were simply receiving their just deserts. “If they had been nice to you when you politely asked them to turn the music down, they wouldn’t have been looking for a new venue”, one commenter wrote. “That’s the definition of karma, simple.”
