If I were her, I'd be more worried about that basketball clogging her GI tract after I shoved it up her ass.

"It's been hell for three years," Elliott said.

If listening to a kid play basketball is your idea of Hell, you are a worthless, sheltered coont.

The beauty of renting is that you can easily move if you don't like your accomodations. If it is preventing her from doing her work. STFU and GTFO.
 
2012-11-01 01:14:23 PM  
Apparently this lady has never heard of earplugs.
 
2012-11-01 01:14:50 PM  
If she has directly attributable health issues, she should call the waaahmbulance.

Stop it. We can't mock the litigiousness of the US if you do shiat like that.

Elliot is the person being sued, not the person doing the suing.

Where do these people come from? This just makes me sad. I hope she dies. But what will they do with her 40 cats?
 
2012-11-01 01:17:36 PM  
She should stop eating basketballs, then.
 
2012-11-01 01:17:40 PM  
It's an apartment. If you expect total peace and quiet from a multi-family residence like an apartment building or duplex, you are an unreasonable idiot from the start.

Also, wtf Canada, the USA has monopolized the concept of lawsuit frivolity, how'd you get a piece?
 
2012-11-01 01:18:12 PM  
Buy noise cancelling headphones biatch. They went through the trouble to build a portable wall to specifically protect her windows, yet she thinks that's a bad thing.

I'd countersue for being a coont. That's legit.. right?
 
2012-11-01 01:19:15 PM  
What's her Fark handle?

The lady is an annoying whiner. That being said, though, driveway basketball is the fourth most annoying suburban noise pollution (barking dogs is #1, skateboarders is #2, and #3 is that guy who drives around with the loud car stereo playing the song that goes FOOM BOOM-BOOM, FOOM BOOM-BOOM, FOOM BOOM-BOOM at some ridiculous decibel level).
 
2012-11-01 01:20:22 PM  
Don't worry, it's $25,000 in Canadian dollars. That's only worth $100 US, right?!
 
2012-11-01 01:20:24 PM  
ftfa: Langdon lawyers said in a letter she is a professional writer who requires peace and quiet to earn her living and there's a growing body of evidence that suggests environmental noise is linked to cardiovascular disease.

Maybe she should write a book about it?

The only way to deal with people like this is to shame them. I say signs in the neighborhood and interviews with every local news station should help in the endeavor.

What a troll biatch! Counter-sue for psychological trauma, emotional distress and loss of sleep from seeing her fat ass waddle out to get the mail. Also, I find it rather unlikely that a basketball would break a window. This woman should be excluded from having neighbors.

Canadian people problems.

This. Although, at my apartment complex, the people are relatively quiet. It is the stupid ass neighbors next door who are CONSTANTLY screaming at their kids or dogs that piss me off.


F those house owners.

I thought that Canada's health care system would eliminate the need for her to spend $25,000 on the operation needed to extract the sand from her vagina.

"It's been hell for three years," Elliott said.

I would suggest going without food, water and shelter for 4 consecutive days before attempting to define "hell."

The best thing about a Facebook Courage Wolf fan page is to post on articles like this because Courage Wolf has more presence when requesting people kill themselves than I do. It makes sense for CW to exhort her to off herself.

Can't she just get a pair of noise cancelling headphones? It's not like he's playing with a friggen jackhammer!
 
2012-11-01 01:25:28 PM  
Perhaps she should read this book: Here And maybe talk to the author.
 
2012-11-01 01:25:39 PM  
I know that it would obviously be abused and is a terrible overreaction of a solution, but I really wish that we could just have people executed that brought dumbass sh*t like this to court.

My #2 would be the high-pitched shrieks of children chasing each other, but otherwise I couldn't agree more.
 
2012-11-01 01:28:38 PM  
I bought a townhouse next to some renters who cannot walk up and down the stairs without sounding like they are stomping. Two teenaged boys who run up and down at all hours of the night, and the parents don't do anything about it..

It's called common courtesy.. If they had to build a wall to protect her window, it means that the noise it right outside her window..

I think she should just move. I don't agree with a law suit, but I understand where she's coming from.

The top three happen at night basketball by and large happens during the day. If you happen to sleep during the day trust me I have sympathy for you (I've done the night shift routine too) but you might as well include lawn mowing, weed whackers, construction, and just plain being a child to your list.

My neighbors have young kids and I swear to god I'd rather be water boarded than listen to 5 year old girls playing while I need to sleep. You know the ones I mean, the ones who have just realized that loud high pitched sounds evoke a reaction from everyone around them and use ever excuse they can find to make loud high pitched shrieks.
 
2012-11-01 01:29:10 PM  
Perhaps this vapid coont should move somewhere that is less neighborhoodish where she can get privacy, peace and quite. I can't stand people who want everyone else to cower to their needs. Do something about your poor location yourself you dumb b*tch.
 
2012-11-01 01:29:48 PM  
sounds like someone isn't getting laid enough. someone should start a service for these kind of people, to give them orgasms on a regular basis. I bet these kinds of stories would all but disappear.

Or she could just kill herself. Lots of quiet after you do that.

I live near the airport, so the gubmint came and gave me all new triple-pane windows and glass doors, and sprayed insulation throughout the house. You could shoot someone and cut their body up with a chainsaw in my front yard and I probably couldn't hear it.

/ahhh, silence

Three years of hell. Not counting all the hours the kid is in school, it's dark out, or he's doing something else. So more like two weeks of hell.

Which is why I grin and bear it.. Doesn't mean I have to like it.. I bought it because it was in my budget and it's 5 minutes from work.

Dr. Doug Lukinuk, a local chiropractor who organizes a basketball program and raises money for equipment, created a petition to support "freedom to play basketball in your own driveway."


How original...

Less ability to do her writing though...but yeah, that option seems pretty good from an outside view too.

BarleyGnome:

reading between the lines, I inferred that they built a moveable barrier because she had been complaining that the ball might break her window. No idea if a ball had ever actually hit it; and I have never seen a basketball accidently break a window. To me, it sounds like they gave her that inch, and now she wants the mile.

I'd be playing Twisted Sister out loud from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM.

When my family was living in Long Beach, we were mercilessly tormented by an old bat and her husband. They would call the police out on a noise complaint if we flushed the toilet after midnight! She did horrible things to us, including a home invasion and her damn fool husband spraying our pets with agricultural grade pesticide which backfired when he got cancer from playing with the stuff and had a horrible agonizing death,a and we got to call the cops because they were making too much noise.
 
2012-11-01 01:41:08 PM  
Canada. This is so much easier solved in the US and it may or may not involve firearms.
 
2012-11-01 01:41:50 PM  
OH NOES! A child is out of doors, exercising?? The HORROR!!

Yes, neighbor noises can be annoying. Unfortunately, you are not the center of the universe. Therefore, if you require absolute quiet, it is on you to A) move somewhere without close neighbors, or B) soundproof your space.

"My client demands payment of $25,000 within 10 days of receipt of this letter for damages she has experienced, otherwise we may take legal action against you without further notice," the letter from Iler Campbell LLP Barristers and Solicitors in Toronto reads.

i wonder what Iler Campbell LLP Barristers and Solicitors in Toronto's other clients might feel about Iler Campbell LLP Barristers and Solicitors in Toronto sending threatening letters to 17 year olds.

If only there was a away to find out who Iler Campbell LLP Barristers and Solicitors in Toronto's clients were.
