Well, that escalated quickly.


I heard back from my neighbor. He liked the icy cold 12 pack and said he'd keep one cold for me, any time.
He went on to say it was just an automatic reaction to the "loud noise" and all was good.


You all carry on...

Awesome. Sometimes people are having an off day for whatever reason and then they do or say things that they ordinarily wouldn't do or say. Plus he is most likely not a car guy because his automatic reaction would have been a thumbs up.

I do have a stereo in my car but I know enough that if you play it that loud, it not only annoys the neighbors but also hurts your own hearing. There I have said my piece and will await the flames that I can see on the horizon.
After pulling up to a motorcycle with a loud stereo, I had to issue a blanket apology for being a douche. I never realized, duh, how obnoxious it sounded in the car next to me. As has been noted, there'e a time and place for everything...

Well, do remember what you said about Karma? I think you just pissed off most of the members of this site and will have quite a few people disagreeing with you on here. So what makes you so much more moral and ethical than me? What gives you the right to judge me or my fellow Americans?

As with all things that "freedom" provides, you are free to interpret it any way you see fit.


On the other side of the coin, "freedom" also dictates that I am free to judge any way I see fit.


"Freedom" also dictates that people can agree, or disagree, with anything you, or I, may have to say. That is, as long as it doesn't impinge upon anyone's right to live in a peaceful state.

Believing that roaring through a quiet neighbourhood is a demonstration of your freedoms, is about as misguided as your interpretation of my statement. It's akin to the alcoholic that refuses to admit that they have a problem, regardless to how much personal carnage it causes to those around them.

This statement is wrong on so many levels, I don't even know where to begin. Obviously you're confusing "purpose" with "hedonistic pursuit". You need professional help.

So the criteria is if a law was broken? Apparently the concept of common sense is equally as lost on you as the concept of consideration for others.

He was driving at or below the speed limit in first gear but his car is loud.

Are you an American citizen? If not the keep your comments about our Country to yourself. You, like all LIBS, are twisting my comment and I predict that you will continue to.

Hmmm, most Canadians I know are very polite folks. Maybe some one pissed in his Cheerios ,but my advice is if he believes Canada and Australia are the best countries in the world, so be it. I served with Aussies when I was in the Army and they were a bunch of great people! But like everywhere there are just some people that are clueless and nasty so I'd say, don't waste your time.

Not at all like a drunk driver! He was cruising slowly through his own neighborhood to his house and passed a new renter who was having a bad day and probably didn't like the fact that someone was enjoying himself out for a cruise in his cool car. Carnage? how does that relate to driving slowly in his own neighborhood???

"As you see fit", spoken like a true pompous windbag.

WTF are you talking about LIB. The "statement" you say is wrong is a simple list of some every day occurances that make noise. Most of these things above that make noise are both purposeful and make people happy such as children and pets and even believe it or not, taking care of one's property, it give me pleasure to take care of my house, my property, and my cars, I take pride in this. Does that offend you in some way? Am I selfish, unevolved, materialistc, a capitalist (oh no), maybe I should share my stuff with the lazy, errr... I mean less fortunate. So get off your high horse, Lib. A car guy was enjoying the sound of his car that he spent some time and money on modding, BFD! Flipping someone off is wrong. You are the confused one!
