Make the squeaking stop...

Would the never-ending aural torture of a squeaky trampoline being jumped on for hours on end right outside my window be a successful defence in court?

No?

Damn.

Not against a murder charge, no.

How about hosing the thing down with WD-40 when nobody's watching?

Full of good ideas, me. As usual.

Wouldn't that make it rather slippery?

Could work.

Thank God that your neighbours and mine will likely never meet. (You have to log into LJ to see that entry, heh.) Then there would be the possibility that the rudeness would mate and multiply.

Seriously, I feel your pain.

Did you think I was writing about my dentist? Hmmm?

Late at night and without permission, dress like a ninja, sneak over the fence and slice the trampoline surface to shreds. Slink away quietly .

jkirlin - I had the same problem. Risk of reading things waaaaay to quickly I guess.

Or, thinking waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back, you could re-visit the lawn sprinkler idea.

Dawn, I used to have the same problem with the neighbors next door, except that I live in an apartment, and it was a waterbed instead of a trampoline.

I think.

I said this over at Zoe's place, but in case you missed it:

The Ricardipus Flaming Bleach Cannon (patent pending). Good for trampolines, neighbours, ants, weeds, and just about anything up to the size of an elephant. Don't use it on hippopotamuses, it just makes them angry.

There. Sorted.

You need to make uncompromising squeeking noises yourself Dawn.

Attack badgers, that's what you need.

Really hungry ones that'll eat all the evidence, and possibly the trampoline too.

Failing that, try any of the above, just don't get caught; that way you won't end up in court.

Sorted.
