Yes, of course. Generally, most of the time, this is true.
But on Saturday and Sundays - when everyone is home - the din of lawn mowers, cars, and other noises is pretty constant.
Just on those off-times when you can relax in the burbs, your neighbors are building a shack with power tools, mowing their lawn, or playing their stereos outside, or a dog is barking.
Between 9 and 5, they are generally silent. But if you work, who cares. It's the off times that are important, and because the burbs force you to stay at home because there are no third spaces within easy walking distance, you end up finding noisy obsessions for your neighbors to listen to all day.
Lie to me once, you're a fool.
Lie to me every minute of every day, I'm a commercial media consumer.
