So some new neighbors moved in not too long ago. They seemed nice enough... They speak English, so that is a plus. They mow their yard and take their trash cans back up to the house on the same day the trash man comes, etc. I could do without the basketball goal peering over our fence and the basketball noise that comes with it, but all was well.
Then about a week ago I was outside with Liam. I noticed a couple young boys jump into their teenage size pool as I walked by our mailboxes and headed to our private back yard with Liam. I hear them splashing around and having a good time... THEN, I hear the F-bomb multiple times... The 4th or 5th time I heard it, I heard myself scream at the top of my lungs, "WATCH YOUR MOUTHS!"
I am suddenly the next door babysitter?
What just happened?
If I hear it again, am I going to run to their front door and report their behavior to their parents?
I really didn't know. I was jut appalled because my very impressionable child was in hearing range of their foul mouths. It got me all anxious and fidgety the rest of the day.
Then today... I am outside again and hear not only the F word but a few other colorful ones. Mind you, these kids are like 10 and under, they think they are pretty hot stuff... Or so it seems. I yelled the same phrase through the fence again and their silence didn't last as long. I wondered if a parent was actually right there and maybe that parent shrugged and motioned for them to go back to what they were doing. It was too hot to stay outside and find out what else may come out of their mouths.
So there's the story. What would you do? Or does this bother only me?
