Sleep disturbed on Sunday morning in USJ2
I wanna complain about some event being held in front of Summit USJ complex today ( 27th March 2005 ). The stupid DJ started to blast music and talked loudly over the PA system early in the morning. The event is called "And 1".. it's some outdoor 3 on 3 basket ball thingy.
I am pretty sure those living opposite of Summit USJ at USJ 2 knows what I mean.
How early is early? If you have jumped out of bed and posted this complaint and by judging at the time-stamp, it was past 9.30 am. That is not early. That is late - even on a Sunday. This is not a daily or every Sunday event. We should all practice more tolerance in such trivial matters. I think people could and should get worked up about important issues such as the controversy surrounding foodcourt etc, not when a sleep is disturbed at 9.30 am on one Sunday out of all the Sundays in a year.

Reason: For Clarity
InitialD. My apologies to you. My post was not meant to sound to castigate you at all. After re-reading it, it did sound that way and for that, I do apologise. What I am trying to say is that in general, all of us have to learn to be more tolerant, especially over matters which are not life-and-death. I believe that the general lack of tolerance in our fast-paced society have led to violent quarrels, assaults, road rages and even taking the law into our own hands.
I read a paragraph from Dale Carnegie:
Let's never try to get even with our enemies, because if we do we will hurt ourselves far more than we hurt them. Let's do as General Eisenhower does: Let's never waste a minute thinking about people we don't like.
I was passing the area at 8.30 and there's already a big crowd of students. So i'm guessing the party started before 8 am, so is that early for you on a Sunday morning. I'm agreeable to that event but the DJ blasting the speaker is kinda unnecessary.
My neighbour also complaint to us about the blasting noise by the DJ from Summit and she said it started as early as before 7 am.
I couldn't hear anything coz as usual I sleep like a baby! Or a dead log......hee hee hee......

Err...CKOne...has a valid pointer here...in this case it was not one of those regular nuisance giving rise to constant problems...it was just a sporting event...happening probably once is a blue moon...thus there wasn't any need to expand any veins over the matter...what a lovely evening it turned out to be after the heavey shower of rain
Time is relative. 8 am is late for me but maybe early for you. The point I have been stressing, I have already made in my second post. You also said there was a big crowd of students there. Yet the DJ blasting the speaker is not necessary. So what do you expect the DJ to do? Whisper?

I guess you see stars while others see mud.
Actually, the event started before 7am, and the DJ was blaring the music so loud, that as I passed on the other side of the road, in a race-tuned and race exhaust fitted car no less and the window wound up (not mine, I was hitching a ride to the car-park rally), I heard them loud and clear.
I see CKone's point and I think it's fair to say that I am usually moderate on many issues, but these guys were loud. One must remember that noise is a form of pollution if unwelcomed.
But patience has its virtues.
On the other hand, event coordinators should have a little more consideration as well, for some people might have has a long night on Saturday and wish to sleep in on Sundays. They are after all at home and have a right to peace and quiet, eh?
