The neighbors have just had another noisy late-night party, that spilled out onto the sidewalk and into the street twice.
I’ve gone down twice (wearing my Roman collar) and asked them to be quiet. It worked the first time, and had moderate effect the second time (the guests are leaving). I told them I’ll call the police next time without giving the party-goers any warning.
The question is: is it worth it to call the police? They probably have more serious problems to deal with than noisy drunk teenagers. I’ve heard their sirens several times tonight going to other locations. I might need them for more serious reasons in the future; might it be like crying wolf to call them now?
I don’t think so. If it happens again I’ll call the cops…
