“Dear PoPville,

I live on the corner of 11th and Mass Ave NW and have been enjoying a man selling cold water on the corner yelling “ice cold!” from mid morning through rush hour. It has been annoying when working from home, but city life is what it is.

Yesterday though he turned it up a notch with a megaphone that featured a siren and a classical music jingle in all its 8 bit glory. This made it impossible to work from home (if it was a sick day I would have lost it).

I took a deep breath, went outside, and very politely asked him to stop with the megaphone, which he seemed receptive to, but his wife was not and as soon as I went inside it continued.

Just looking for advice/suggestions or info on noise ordinance rules, this does not feel like it needs a call to the police, just lose the megaphone.
