I would let my Small Child run around the yard all day everyday. And dare them to call the police.

This fascinates me. How does a person become so fucked up out of touch with normal human behavior? Obviously, if they have pets, they enjoy the company of other living creatures and have some capacity for empathy.

When I was a kid in the 70s, we were looking for an apartment to rent one year in Tucson, and a lot of complexes were really geared toward retirees. Old people move to Arizona. They made it clear that kids were not welcome, although one of them said that they were not supposed to come right out and say that, but that we were not allowed to walk on the watered grass and they would evict us if we walked on the grass (while looking at the four of us rambunctious kids standing in the rental office.) We eventually found a complex that was geared toward families, and moved there. It was an awesome place with playgrounds and gangs of kids running around, and a vast open desert just next door where we could ride our bikes around and try to catch horned toads and hunt for scorpions.

So yeah, if this young family moved into a retirement community, that's the only way I can make any sense out of this.

The only thing I could think of is maybe the phrase "carrying on" is doing the most work in that sentence. I mean if the kid is literally shrieking with joy for hours at a time, I can see how it would get old. Still not the way to handle it, obviously, plus the justification that her bird likes to look in the neighbor's yard is downright absurd.

I read it as a neighbor who likes them just joking around.

It's a shame, sometimes, that arson is so frowned upon in polite society.
