Default I hate fireworks

Am I really the only one?

My family loves shooting them and I hate them. Of course they have to make fun of me for not enjoying them, which is completely annoying. Apparently I am a wimp for not liking loud noises.... :/

I don't like them.... I find them incredibly boring, non exciting, and pointless... haha.

Even as a kid, going to watch them bored me.

Not to mention they stress my dog out now, so they're pretty much a no-go for me.

I find them pointless and boring as well as loud and annoying that way. I really stress with loud noises. Can't explain why, I KNOW it won't hurt me but I still hate it.

I love fireworks, but not this year. I'm about to rage out at whatever jerkbags are setting off fireworks next door to work. I don't even really mind that you're freaking out my boarding dogs, guys, that's par for the course on the 4th, but they're illegal because our ENTIRE STATE IS ON FIRE. #%^* you.

I don't like them either. When I was little my biological dad would throw firecrackers at me and my brother. Left its impression.

I only like them when they're really good. Like at Disney World or that kind of stuff.

I've always hated them.

A friend brought up a very good point at a BBQ today, why do we insist on setting off fireworks in the name of independence when it causes so many issues for many of those who fought/are fighting for that independence (PTSD).

I'm starting to really really hate them. As in I'm tempted to start phoning the rcmp and complaining each, and every time they go off.

I don't mind the good pro displays, we go to those where there's music and an actual show, in fact bummed out that the one fireworks show isn't going this year because it's in the mountains.

But the local stores sell home fireworks now and every yahoo redneck moron in town buys them. Today it's been every half hour or so. Usually every weekend there's bang bang bang, half an hour, more noise, till 1 in the morning.

I have one kid who won't go to sleep if she hears them because she's scared. Also have a golden who is quite convinced that someone is tossing a duck for her when she hears the bang and goes ape whining and barking and pacing, wanting to get out and get her bird. And nothing settles her down other than an actual bird, and no, at 1 am not going to take out a bird and go to the park in hopes that she'll be happier with that.

It's not super dry here but still......

I don't particularly care to go somewhere with a huge crowd to watch fireworks, but if I can see them from where I live (like at my parents' house, or the house we used to live in, and even in the apartment) I will go outside and watch a few minutes. I went through a short phase where I liked setting them off in the driveway of our old house, but now I really have no interest in spending my hard-earned money on those things. I can't see any fireworks from where we are now, although I could hear them. It's a lot quieter than my parents' house tends to be as the rednecks that live around there set off CANNONS. Or at least, they SOUND like cannons. And they have HUGE parties that you can hear right through the forest that go late into the night, and they BLAST country music as loud as humanly possibly. I got SO SICK of that "proud to be an American" song.

I don't hate them I'm just pretty apathetic about them. I have 0 interest in going anywhere to watch them, setting them off, or really anything else to do with them.

I do get annoyed when people do stupid things like set them off in major drought conditions or set them off constantly. We had neighbors where we used to live who set them off from about June 1 to October 1. Which is dumb and gets old.

Fortunately my dogs are as apathetic about them as I am. The first explosions barely garnered an ear twitch and since then there's been no reaction at all.
