First of all, I will say thank you for all your support to the competition for our new badge to this prompt. As you might know, we were 5, who had been creative. Congratulations to the winner: Hope Floats.
As you may know, I live in an area close to the Mediterranean Sea in Spain. Many of the houses here are only used in the Summer time, also some for renting, even we are many, who live here all the year.
In a neighbor house we have had a German family for the last two weeks, mother, father, grandmother, 2 kids at around 4-6 years old and a labrador. Oh my for a family, they have been very close to drive me insane with their very loud way of keeping their holidays.
Usual it is the kids, who are screeming and yelling by the swimmingpool, but in this case here, it was all in the family. I really don’t know, who did make worst of this noise but the dog was absolut the most quiet in this family.
I really don’t understand, how people can be so egoistic and not mind that there are other people, in this case many people, around them and they did really terrorize all with their behavior here. Thanks, they left the house yesterday…
I haven’t been much in my garden in this time, because of the very loud noise. It was impossible just to sit and enjoy my coffee outside. Then I decided to go inside my house and do what I had energy for instead. But we have Summer here and need to have windows and doors open just to breath.
I use to do my meditation by the Sea in the morning and later in the afternoon. At this time there are a lot of tourists here, so not peace for meditation at the beach at the moment and when I wished to do it inside the house, I needed to close all windows and doors just to get a little peace. Even then it was difficult to find peace. I have felt frustrated in this time. I don’t use to have that kind of problems here and I really don’t hope, that we get more of this kind of families in this Summer. I love to be able to use my garden more than in very early morning or very late night, which were the only times with peace outside.
What I really don’t understand is, why do parents not raise their kids to behave, so other people can stand being around them? I see this very often, it seems like people are scared for their own kids. If they don’t do anything wrong to their kids, why be scared? Parents don’t need to be their kids best friend, they need to be and act like parents, so their kids have a model to look up to. Kids need kids to be best friends with, not adults.
I find that very sad for the kids, when no one teach them, how to behave in our world. How will they be as adults? Very egoistic, I think.
