To the asshats that park at the daycare lot and start anally blasting the neighborhood with rap music at 2am: Fuck You. I get it, the party doesn't end after the bar down the street closes, but the daycare sits behind a house and a large apartment complex where children, animals and tons of other people live. Not to mention there are 4-5 apartment complexes down and across the street and literally everywhere within a block of you. I personally do medical treatments at night that you are disrupting, so I can't exactly go down and politely ask you to stop. This isn't the first time you have done this. Thankfully it's not a regular occurrence but when it does happen, you guys stay there for hours blasting music (sometimes from two cars at once playing completely different songs; what the fuck is up with that??) standing around and screaming. Y'all aren't even dancing or doing anything remotely interesting. Fucking lame. Also thanks for choosing one of the hottest fucking days of the year to do this, ensuring that everyone around you without AC gets to pick between listening to you or baking alive in their apartment. Look, when you start up at 11:30 on a Saturday evening, I don't really give a shit. That isn't unreasonable, especially since the bars around here are loud until 1am. But no, tonight you had to pop up at 2:30 in the fucking morning and based on previous occurrences you'll probably be here for at least another two hours. (It's 3:30 as I'm writing this.) Honestly, the only reason we haven't called the cops on you is you're all POC and we can't trust the police department not to do something stupid. Please just fuck off.
