Many of them, yes. My wife would love to move into a house in the middle of nowhere to get away from themWhat kind of stuff do they do, though?
What kind of stuff do they do, though?
I don't know most of them around me. To the south is a rental duplex. I've said Hi to them that's about it. To the north I've met with them and we've talked a few times. Nice people.Yeah now that you mention that, I do see that a lot, with many people. Her, with 15 arguments none of which were logical. Have seen that before. Every single person on earth could tell them their argument makes no sense , but they still wouldn't concede. Very frustrating. It's like they're incapable of being wrong. But , they expect others to admit when they're wrong.
Across the street I know the couple that lives there, beacuse they moved in when I was a kid, and I hung out with their sons for many years. They're good people.
The ones south across the street, the wife is an asshole, the husband is cool.
Basically, I had handicapped parking in front of the house (well, my dad did), and they have handicapped plaquards. But we have 3 cars right now, and two were out front. During a snow emergency, I had to move them. Then after the snow emergency everyone has to get onto our side of the street. No big deal, but the husband kept parking in our spot. I moved both of my vehicles back, and he kept parking there, blocking me in, taking half of our area.
After a week I finally texted to ask them not to do that (specifically stating that Snow Emergency stuff was whatever, we all had to make due.), but the wife decided she wanted to argue with me. She had like 15 excuses, all were nonsense. She finally said her husband would move the next day when he moved his car. I thanked her.
The husband has since never parked right in front of our house, so we could get both cars there. (The handicapped signs came down suddenly too, and I suspect she was the one that called the city to report that my dad was dead, but that doesn't matter much to me.). I've tried waving to her when I see her out, she refuses to acknowledge my existence. When I texted them to say my dad was in the hospital, no response. Not even after his passing.
The husband though, he waves back, he doesn't park in front of our house, and seems pretty chill.
The wife just didn't like having her 15 excuses, all of which were bullshit, knocked down and is holding a grudge from December. ROFL. Well, I'm getting ready to make room in the garage for two vehicles, and dump the third one. So I won't be parking in front of the house. I plan on letting them know so they can use the spot anyway. (I bet she's going to feel stupid for having the signs taken down, because it could have been a guaranteed spot for her husband, and now it won't be.)
My first night here at my new place, I'd mistakenly parked in the wrong spot. I wasn't told beforehand which spots were ours, so I just parked in the one nearest my place. My neighbor, who shall henceforth be referred to as Fuckface, could have done the reasonable thing, ie, knocked on my door, left a note, or somehow got in touch with me to let me know that I'd taken his space (I learned later that he has two and doesn't use them both, in fact, he parks in between the lines where his two spots are).Was this in like nyc or something? I think in my area they won't tow neighbor's cars, maybe
Instead, Fuckface had me towed. $300 down the drain for some petty shit, between getting my car back from the tower, the $30 uber ride, and missing two hours of work cause I didn't notice I'd been towed till I went to go to my car to go to work. Welcome to the neighborhood, bitch.
No, I can't say that I do.yeah, an american issue. Now that you mention it, most european and asian countries don't have the extensive yard thing, do they? Mow every week..etc....
They are always home, which can be annoying.
One couple doesn't seem to know they have a back yard....the children can be charming, but sometimes it gets annoying.
I really don't talk to them, and had an whole issue with a tree a few years back.
But all in all they put up with me. I might not be the best neighbor but I the best worst neighbor.
My yard can get over grown, but that is an American issue to care too much about.
Either way, I live on the street for decades longer than anyone, and in fact have been in pretty much every house on the street at one time or another. Plus my Grandfather built the house two doors down.
~I have enough cred. not to care what anyone thinks.
yeah, an american issue. Now that you mention it, most european and asian countries don't have the extensive yard thing, do they? Mow every week..etc....
People just seem to care too much about grass..Yeah i completely agree. Most americans do care too much about their grass. Possibly in europe they don't even have that.....
Oh, I should say the lady across the street thought I was from Vermont, which I take as a compliment.
She's actually really cool, as in my people's kitty corner to me.
But ya, I for one don't care what lenth someone's lawn is at.
And anyway, I am starting to swap out the grass in the front with ground cover.
I have a tree that will not allow any type of grass to grow. It's like a tree of life-looking tree.
Fortunately I don't know them. I live a few miles out of town, closer to the mountains. There's not many people that live out this way. There's a group of maybe 5-6 small homes about a mile closer to town. Then maybe 4 around the curve about half a mile the other way further out of town.
I wouldn't recognize any of them if I saw them. I have no idea who lives in any of those. So, no problems either, which is good. We get our privacy and everything is good.
What Mountains?Blue Ridge, Appalachia.

Are you in a big city in va? Don't most people think of like west va and stuff when Appalachia is mentioned?No, I'm on the Western end of VA, West Virginia is only about a 30 minute drive from here. Very rural, lots and lots of nature. Not much else.
