We live in an almost century old semi-detached home. You can hear everything through the walls. Recently our neighbours of 8 years sold the house. It was bought by a woman who is renting it out. The renters have been there for about 8 months and almost immediately I became concerned about possible ‘domestic situations”. We witnessed their maybe 6 year old daughter sitting in the car alone, which was made further odd about a comment I heard through the wall about ‘sitting in the car again” along with a slew of shouts and F bombs.
Because I’m home with my daughter, I hear it all. Mostly one sided, one of them is always yelling but never at each other. Last night at 10:30 the man was screaming F bombs because the baby was crying. Doors were slamming. 5 minutes later is sounded like he was singing, followed by a series of angry grunts.
So my question is, do I intervene? The last thing I want is to get involved in this, but I’m concerned about their children. But when is it enough? Do I call the homeowner and discuss it with her? Do I just call the police next time? What would be the best approach when I’ve decided its enough?
