The Demon Barber Of Queen Street by Harrisons-Forge


I am a firm believer in the above saying and in combination with another of my favourites "Only a deep and abiding belief in Karma.....stops me from being on a rooftop with an AK47!" led to the writing of a poem to get a little frustration out of my system.

This is the story of the events which led to me setting pen to paper, so are you sitting comfortably? Then we shall begin....

A little over 12 months ago the shop underneath my flat was let to a gentleman whose barber shop had been damaged in a fire. Things were not so bad to begin with. It was warm weather, the music they had on was not too loud and if I asked them to turn it down, they were obliging. The first six months or so passed with very little incident. Then came the Staff Christmas Party.

We had no warning before the event. On the day of the party we were informed by a knock on the door and his missus telling us about it and inviting me down...not the children....adults only. As we were celebrating the Solstice the next day, I sent a Xmas card down with a polite refusal and the reason for it (so they knew we had a busy day ahead). The volume rose throughout the evening until it got to the point where we could not watch or listen to anything on the computer. We figured the noise would die around midnight so ignored it. By 1.30am we were all getting to the point of screaming with the noise. They were asked to quieten down earlier in the evening and the volume had crept up again. My boyfriend went down and informed them that there were three people who had to be up for work in the morning and the police would be called if the noise didn't go down. This finally got through to them, though they were none too happy.

Since then I have had to ask repeatedly for the volume to go down, I have spoken to the landlord and made complaints to the local environmental health office as well as speaking to the police. They were supposed to be soundproofing, but I can still hear the beat from the stereo and it is gradually creeping up again.....so it looks like it is going to end up going to the next legal level and evidence gathering will be taking place...which means noise recording equipment in my home...something I was trying to avoid...it's not like the guy hasn't had every opportunity to be decent.......

It seems that some people actually like to learn the hard way!!
