No this isn’t another post about crap….per se. This is about being a decent neighbor. We have lived in this house now for a little over a year and in that time we have gotten very tired of our neighbors. Well one set that lives next door. They don’t bother us very much as far as direct interaction but, they are a pain in the proverbial ass.
What is that smell??? Oh yea, the old meat wrappers on the side of the BBQ grill that are marinating in the 100 degree heat.
What is that? a 2 year old girl running naked in the front yard? Oh, a naked 5 year old boy following? Ummmm Parents? Babysitter? Oh there she is smoking on the front porch talking on the phone. Oh the older kids are home from school, let the screaming, profanity laden put downs begin!
And then we will get into trash. It doesn’t seem to matter whether they hit the large, black, city provided trash can. Inevitably, their garbage blows into our yard. And they can’t be bothered to pick it up can they?
My son is terrified of thier little devil chiuaua that he is sure will kill him where he stands. I told him to place kick the thing, and if it bit him, I would take them back a little chiuaua corpse. They didn’t like that. Why? Well they were out on the porch smoking again and over heard. They always seem to be out there.
And then there are the police. We have been sitting in the living room watching TV several times when the city police show up next door.
Now like I said, we usually leave them alone. We don’t do much but the neighbor on the other side seems to have a mortal blood feud going. I don’t know many details, but our neighbors but up a huge banner to block off her house from theirs the other day. It seemed low rent and petty, therefore perfect.
I can’t wait to move again. Any experiences with bad neighbors out there? I would love to hear some stories, you know, down in the comments and all.
And then I see it is Labor Day. Have a great one and remember the workers. I have some applesauce to can.
