No, I am 100 percent serious. This baby is dropped off by its young, unmarried father for days on end -- it cries often, esp in the middle of the night and around dawn -- the grandparents, a 40-ish couple, are long-time night owls who seem to be up all night anyway, but they used to be quiet. Reclusive, in fact, so no one around knows them. Now it's very noisy with the crying child, the adults voices, sometimes the big-screen TV which perhaps they are using to soothe the baby, clanking noises from the kitchen, etc. --
Because of the terrain leading down to the lake the balcony that surrounds three sides of their house is on a level with the room I sleep in -- and no trees etc. are between my windows and the many doorwalls that line their balcony -- so they might as well have a loudspeaker hooked up when the baby cries and fusses all night. I and the people who live on the other side of them didn't think there was anything we could do but give them the benefit of the doubt and lump it -- but it sounds as though no one would take offense at a noise-disturbance call to law enforcement. Maybe they could at least get them to keep all those doorwalls shut. I don't know what else to do; we certainly aren't going to approach them directly given their past antisocial behavior.
