|I always feel like somebody's watching me!|
This neighbor will complain about anything. When I first moved in, she got really angry with Joey's kiddie pool because it would be a magnet for mosquitoes. I'm not a dummy, when I have a kiddie pool out - I fill it up, empty it and start again another day. Do you think I'm going to let my kid swim in dirty water? She's also complained that when I mow the grass, I hit her fence and cause these big huge gaps in her fence from the '50s. And my possible favorite was when I got a great letter on my door one day where she said she couldn't open her windows and enjoy living in her home because of the dog poop in my yard. Really??
So now I try to toe the line and do everything I can to make sure she's happy because I don't want her calling the health dept again. I've rearranged my furniture so you can't see how many dogs I have in my house if they would get on my love seat and look out the window. I've also blocked off my front door so too many doggie heads can't be spotted bopping up and down when I come home. And I also have started letting the dogs out in shifts. It is a pain in the butt and I have to admit I get frustrated all the time. I'm a quiet neighbor, I don't blare music, I don't have crazy parties, I just keep to myself so it really ticks me off that I have to keep her happy. I have to admit, I spend too much time thinking of LEGAL ways to annoy the hell out of her. My current favorite is to start a composting worm bin- the city sponsors 'em, and it's all in the name of living green! :) If anyone has any great ideas, please pass them on!
Ok, so here we have a neighbor that doesn't like me too much and clearly doesn't like my dogs at all. And yet I always seem to have at least one foster at all times that like to get into her yard. My favorite was one time when a foster of mine Corrie would escape into her yard when I first got her and wouldn't let us catch her. It was awful. THEN one day Corrie decided to go up on my neighbor's porch and bark at her while she was in her kitchen. THHHHHHAAAANNNKKKKSSSS Corrie. :)
