Annoying Neighbors

We have the worst neighbors ever! All communication in the house seems to be done by screaming/yelling. Because of this all the kids in the house whine, scream or cry constantly because it's all they know. Mom doesn't work or do ANYTHING - including clean. There is only one income and four kids. Apparently this is the excuse for why they can't keep up their home - grass rarely gets cut, back yard is like the 'Land of Misfit Toys' and the garage is totally filled with junk and broken cars. (My Grandma always said that poor shouldn't mean dirty) Last year they added a junk-yard dog to the mix - of course, they have to get the biggest, trashiest dog possible, right? Now that the novelty of the puppy stage has worn off, they leave the dog out for hours to whine and bark, begging to be let in. Needless to say, we enjoy the benefit of this behavior too, because the houses in our neighborhood are so close together. This also allows us to enjoy their door slamming at all hours (heaven forbid they should close a door instead of slamming it). Now that it's warm and their windows are open 24/7; we get to listen to them scream or fight all spring, summer and fall! Just in case the fighting isn't enough, they put appliances, televisions, radios, etc., right in the windows so that everyone else can enjoy whatever they are listening to or watching (usually NASCAR). The police stop by frequently for what I assume is domestic issues -- I think that the teen-age daughter calls them herself when her parents try to discipline her. (discipline seems to involve the threat of bodily injury) Other times, I guess it's the neighbors that call -- one time we called and I've spoken to other neighbors who have called too. This behavior has apparently been going on for years, and was a prime reason for the people who previously owned our house to move. The situation is so bad that we can't even enjoy being outside or have our windows open. It's even embarrassing to have company over.
