Is anyone else sick of hearing fireworks??

  1. I know I'm getting old, that HAS to be the problem. I EXPECTED to hear fireworks New Year's Eve. I did not expect to hear them until 3 am and I definitely did not expect to STILL be hearing them. I would love a law banning them except between certain hours on holidays. Are they legal everywhere????

    Illegal here in the city limits, but people use them all the time anyway.

    There's always a riot going on in the street behind where I sit to be on the computer. Yeah, I'm sick of it, too.

    Love

    We heard some on New Year's Eve, but all was quiet again soon enough. I always hate thay. Sometimes around here, on July 10th, they're still shooting them off.

    I love em. Didn't really get many at all around here...just some at midnight. I guess if they were still going off it would get annoying.

    Fireworks are only legal here on the 4th of July.We are so dry here a firework would probably torch the state now. Send snow

    I now live in a cat free neighborhood. Thanks to the over zealous neighborhood boys who haven't stopped shootin' em off since the 31st. Every night KA BOOOOOOOM.

    There are some lighter-happy freaks in my neighborhood, too. You can expect to hear at least firecrackers any time of the year.

    I live on a cul-de-sac with all old/hermit people but one family so fireworks would probably kill them. Although we could use a little excitement around here other than hearing a snowblower. <devious plotting>

    Where I live they shoot off guns!
    (LOL I reread what I wrote above and I'd originally written "where I live they shoot off buns")
    Never mindful of where the bullet might land? Kind of freaks me out to think about a stray bullet coming from the sky... Might be worse to have some strange buns coming down from the sky though hahaaa Look out it's a flying bagel coming right atcha!

    yanno, here we had a kid killed a couple halloween's ago from this exact thing..

    she was on a hayride, someone shot a gun in the air..the bullet came down into the top of her skull.
