Old money vs. noisy money

My dream of spending a quiet sunny afternoon reading in the hammock thwarted in the usual way: a neighbor has decided he must have an Olympic-sized Koi pond built in his back yard.

I figure two to three days of jackhammering will be needed to remove the sport court he had installed in the same spot last year.

Then weeks with other work crews operating their noise generators to follow.

Do newly rich people secretly get together and make sure at least one of them has a project going that shatters the neighborhood peace at all times?

I think this is also a frequent complaint in Baghdad. Maybe they have developed a neighborhood watch program that might help in your neighborhood as well?
