    I had this rather annoying neighbour. At around 8 o'clock every Sunday morning she would put her stereo on really loud playing praising Jesus music. I enjoy having a sleep-in on Sundays, but this had become impossible.

    Eventually one Sunday I had enough of her and went to over to confront her. "Look dear", I said to her as she is an elderly lady, "I like to sleep in on Sundays, and it's impossible with your music playing soooo loud".
    Well, she started telling me how she had to play it really loud so Jesus could hear and also she was unable to walk to church because her leg was not well.
    I just told her straight out that if those people in that church really believed in Jesus like you think they do, then they would come and pick you up, and trying to substitute that with something else is probably even worse.
    She ended up crying her eyes out, so I gave her a hug and that.

    She doesn't play the stereo loud anymore, but she doesn't even say hello to me anymore. She spends most of her days inside her house now and never goes out into the garden like she once did. I'm feeling quite guilty and are wondering if anyone has any advice on what I should say to her as she has taken the whole thing rather personally.

    Why don't you apologise and offer to take her to church?

    I just went over and saw her & I found out a little more. A group of kids had been bullying another kid and she told them off. They had been trying to blackmail her to keep her mouth shut, so they won't get in trouble. Maybe she was just crying out for help.

    I know who the group of kids are. They are aged about 12-16, but they also know some older rough people. She won't go to the police, but I doubt they would be able to do much anyway. Kids like that tend to have immunity as their parents just let them do what they want.

    She didn't really say that, did she?

    Did you point out that she doesn't need to use a microphone when she prays, and if Jesus can hear just fine then, she doesn't need to blast the music for him to hear that either. He probably doesn't even like that sort of music anyway - the sort of praise music that people blast on a radio tends to be truly awful. I mean really, really bad. She probably had it so loud that she couldn't hear Jesus praying to her to turn it down a bit; he was probably using you as something of an angel to do his work. Present it to her that way and you might get in the will.

    Well done.
    Shoot her in the head so that she may meet her maker all the sooner.

    She nearly did die when she saw what those kids had been putting in her letter-box. She brought out all these pornographic pictures, which I took off her hands.

    I'm shifting out next week, so maybe Jesus will have to help her. I don't know, I may go and visit one of the older kids before I leave and ask what his problem is. Maybe if I make an example of one of them, then the rest will learn.

    No I won't...I will be shaking the hand of the devil and thanking him for making god botherers blow each other up in the name of god.

    Good on you for going and talking to the woman and finding out what was wrong. I don't know about talking to the kids, as you may well get balckmailed by them yourself. Maybe talk to the parents?

    What the?.. They're a bunch of kids. They need direction. A steady
    example. I say, kick their arses and if they still don't comply blow one of
    them up. If their parents get upset, let them know it's their fault. Let
    them know you're a MAN for Bob's sake! 😠

    Ts, what a bunch of sissies we have here. 😞 In my neighbourhood the
    kids shy away whenever I get within five meters, because they know to
    stay the hell away from me. And a good thing it is too. It'll teach them to
    treat others with respect!

    Don't just roar. Kick arse! There's a time for relaxing and a time for
    tearing the waste out of everybody! This is kicking time!

    ---

    Seriously, if we grown-ups start backing off, scared of being blackmailed
    and waste, what kind of example is that? Kids needs to be taught that
    they can't get away with anything, and it's their parents job to see to it. If
    it doesn't work, confront the parents and communicate with the kids
    (you'd be surprised how much brains most of them have with the
    appropriate illumination on their possible futures) and if there's still
    problem alert the proper authorities. And if that doesn't work, move
    to a country where these things does work, and leave those suckers
    in their own personal hell. But whatever you do, don't just let them get
    away with such a thing. That's the worst.

    Don't just roar. Kick arse!
