DM little party

It’s only 4 o’clock, its going to go on for much longer.
It began around 11:30AM. I wandered off to take pictures of the neighborhood and visit folks. I came back around 3. It was still going on, now there are people there.
It’s the base. I’m sitting in the center of my house and I hear the base. I’ve got the loud fan on, NPR loud and I still hear the gd base. So I wandered over to talk to DM about the music. She was nice about it and said she couldn’t turn the base down (she doesn’t care to turn the base down or the music). She asked if she could just have a little something for her son, just a school thing (son nowhere in sight) and it will be over at 10 (when she darn well feels like it).
I am so calling the cops at 10:15.

  1. You are giving me a flashback to when I lived in DC. She can’t turn it down? That’s a way of saying “I’m a selfish moron & I’m not turning it down.” My sympathies.

  2. Thank Jon. Luckily it did go off and I didn’t call the cops, though I suspect maybe someone else did. She said she had called the police to see if it was okay to have her music, apparently someone (or she could have been fibbing) said it was okay as long as it was in her backyard. In other words, the folks facing her and beside her know her and call the cops to her house. The people in the alley don’t know her and probably couldn’t direct the cops to the right house. But given 9 hours to figure it out, they would know which house the music was coming from.
    It used to be worse, and more often. And she used to claim that it wasn’t her. But as the demographics change it is harder to blame other houses because the other houses are white or distinctly African or very quiet.
