The middle aged man next door is OCD is swear. Every morning he uses his leaf blower to blow "leaves". There aint no damn leaves. He's mentally unstable for sure. Since my hubby works nights and we will soon have a newborn, I tried to talk to him about it, but he was hostile and dismissive. Any advice?
What time does he do this?? If you have a noise ordinance in your town he could be in violation. Check with local law enforcement. IT wouldn't hurt to talk with the cops about how to deal with it... go in and ask to speak with some one. Honestly they would rather help you deal before it gets heated and you are calling them every other day.
If there is nothing you can do legally try keeping a fan on, the white noise make it easier to sleep when there is noise. I did that with both my kids b/c my hubby used to work weird hours and it helped him a bunch. (Added bonus to using a fan in the room - it it keeps the air circulating and some studies have shown it reduces the risk of SIDS)

Good luck with this! We had a neighbor that used to rev up & try it fix old cars during my kids naps, outside of our bedrooms. I put the CO2 monitor in my window and it set off the alarm... so the Fire dept had to come an it was a huge deal, they went over and yelled at him for being irresponsible.... that finally stopped it!! Fight fire with fire... do something that might annoy him at weird hours.... payback's a bitch!!
