I had something very similar happen about a month ago. I had an issue replacing the fuel pressure regulator spring and had a fuel leak. It was getting late and so I called it a night knowing what I had to do the next day.
The next morning, I went out and fixed the problem at about 8:30 in the morning. My neighbor right next to me (I live in a townhouse) was on her porch talking on the phone and so I walked over letting her know I had to fire my truck up and wanted to make sure she was ok with that. She sid, "no problem Bill!" and I went back and fired it up. After about 3 minutes and no leaks, I shut it down and started putting everything else back together.
It was at that moment that the neighborhood cat lady with her two dogs started b*itching at me about my truck being too loud and that people were trying to sleep. Keep in mind it was 9:00 at this point. I told her that my truck was no louder than any of the other vehicles around nor was it any louder than her little yip-yap dogs that bark non-stop every time she brings them outside.
The next door neighbor then got involved and basically told the old one she needs to mind her own business and go away.
