Two years in, OP lived with their brother—and their neighbors' morning departures for night shifts consistently disrupt their sleep.
Neighbors' driveway is five feet from bedrooms; they make Bluetooth calls in their cars, audible even through the bedroom wall.
OP's dog barks at annoying calls; neighbor's response: air horn.
Bark deterrents installed, but the neighbor's rare outings for yard work and mail disrupt dog duty.
Dog bark deterrent battery died. OP's relaxing in the living room, and suddenly, here comes the air horn.
OP's brother's porch concert leads to neighbor's false accusations, calling him an "asshole" and insisting on bringing the dog inside.

Craft a masterpiece from annoyance: Take notes on the neighbor's phone talks, create a song, and have the brother perform it amplified.
Electric violin for the brother? Amplified learning curve—a special gift to share with the neighbors!
New multi-effect pedal: the neighbor's wakeup call, now with added flair!
Introducing the latest neighbor serenade upgrade: Now featuring awesome looping pedals!
Neighbor symphony, now with hours of perfecting the phaser for that extra touch of finesse!
Spy on their Bluetooth call, then crank up a loud chat with the brother. Neighbors will surely lower the volume next time.
New hobby idea: Bagpipes! Duet with the brother. Neighbors won't hit snooze twice.
Had a neighbor who aced the bagpipe wake-up at 7 am every Saturday. Fast track to mute mode for the neighbors!
Brother, go inside for a drink or bathroom break—coincidentally, the guitar might hit "feedback mode." Timing is key!
Twice the charm: Brother went inside for a break, and, surprise, the guitar decided to share some feedback. Perfectly timed drama!
Wishing the brother a healthy break—whether a lengthy bathroom visit or a nap—during the "stressful" feedback episode.
Turn the tables: Invest in an industrial-size air horn, wait for their loud chat, and let the symphony of revenge begin.
Cut the niceties. Suggest the brother takes up the violin for a subtler touch of sonic chaos.
Encourage them: Suggest taking up the bagpipes. It's like adult recorder lessons, with a bit more impact!
