Although they haven't said it, I know my neighbors think I'm intolerant. A few weeks ago I was awakened around midnight by their teenage children who were having a party. I could hear the noise and music for hours before I went to bed, but ignored it as best I could. What woke me up was the fact that some of the party had migrated to my yard. These loud, drunk underage kids thought nothing about trampling my flowers and pushing down my fence. Even after I confronted them (something their parents would never do) they couldn't understand why I was less than pleased with their actions, since they were "just having fun" but they did leave.
I've spoken to the parents before about similar incidents and their response is always something along the lines of " well you know how kids are." Never have they made the kids say they were sorry, restore anything they damage or institute any punishment. In essence, in their drive to always stay in the good graces of their kids, they have failed to be parents.
