QUIET PLEASE

Today, where I live in Germany, you're supposed to be quiet between noon and 3 p.m., so people have a chance to take a nap or just eat lunch in peace, but 3 of my 4 neighbors seem to consider this the ideal time for any project that involves lawn-mowers and power tools. FML

I'm presuming there's a bylaw that they're just clearly ignoring. Couldn't you call the city officials about this? It's a similar situation here with my neighbours and their yapping mutt. I guess it's not supposed to be out barking after 10 or something, but they have it out every so often making noise. See if the city can do something about these people during quiet period.

But a rule’s a rule. You don’t see people doing construction in neighborhoods during the night (a designated quiet time), even though that might be a better time traffic-wise for them to work.

You wouldn't survive Africa then, where it is some weird cultural thing to project like a motherfucker when you speak. The other day, two people were having a conversation 50 metres away. I actually ran out of my workshop to investigate, thinking someone was being attacked.

That makes 0 sense. Person is bothered by a person violating a cultural practice in Location A and you think that translates to not being okay with culture practice in Location B.

Call the cops then, or better the "Ordnungsamt". Also make sure that there are actually quiet times during midday, while widely believed that is not always true. You probably did, as you wrote "where I live", in the city where I live you can happily mow your lawn Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., as there is no "Mittagsruhe" here.
