No I live on a major road. I live in the city. So while they are driving down the road intoxicated there are fifteen cars behind them honking.

Not all those who wander are lost

I have such a long list...this thread is so helpful.

Years ago I had a neighbor who really gave us a hard time. He was a senior citizen and had lots of negative things to say and do. Overall he was arrogant, foolish and pretty mean. One day his wife and he moved out and let his daughter move in. She was required to mow, weed, take care of it etc. Well HER own daughter was married to an abusive man and she sought refuge with her mom. There was a period of time when this man would come and threaten his wife. He would open our gate and theirs and run into the back yards with a gun or threats. It was pretty stressful. My husband and I helped these two women a lot. We would help anyone in that situation but we knew how indifferent the abused woman's grandfather was about it. He really only cared about money and it showed. He later kicked them out on short notice and we helped them move. That old man was so mean to his family and his neighbors. When he would complain about how troubled his children and grandchildren were, I would just encourage him to help them. Over time, I saw that he was just a mean ol' man who did not care one bit.

--------------------------------

The pot-smoking neighbors, unfortunately, have helped me to change my opinion about legalizing MJ. I used to be all for legalizing MJ. It's an herb. Yet, after years of witnessing what MJ use does to parents and their kids...I think it does a lot of damage that people do not want to look at. I wish adults with kids would not smoke MJ. Their kids are really emotionally hungry and mentally disengaged whether intelligent or not... not to mention dishonest. That breaks my heart.

--------------------------------

If I had money, I would give many of my neighbors a ride-on mower and a 24 pk of beer. I would love something as simple as a drunk on a lawnmower. Much less drama!

I have quite a few about the same neighbor, next door.

I was cutting the grass, which I can certainly do and like to....i like to let dp come home from working hard and more or less relax (while hanging out w kids) while i go out and mow the lawn....its a break for me to not hear "mama, mama," ya know...
anyway, he came up behind me (so i didnt see him until he was right there) and he actually tried to take my lawn mower from me and told me i had no bizness cutting my grass (because im a girl, ya know) and what was wrong with my dp and saying he would bring his lawn tractor over and do it for me. he was drunk. i was all sweaty and gross and didnt want him in my yard, much less right there next to me, fighting me to get my lawn mower out of my hands. and now dp doesnt like to let me cut my yard anymore.

after a year of ignoring him, i forgave him, i guess, and let him approach me in my driveway. I was about 7 months pg and he said "oh i didnt know you were pregnant" and reached out to grab or rub or touch or whatever my belly, which was NOT cool with me. He is the only person who has ever done this to me in all my pgs. Anyway, i kinda like dodged him, moved away, whatever, so he couldn't touch me and he said "oh, its not a good thing then." (Like, referring to my pregnancy!)

WEIRD-O

so then, recently he called the cops and accused us of stealing his ladder. We were like WTF? we NEVER borrow from them and of course we wouldnt steal. But the weird thing about it is I dont see how it could be possible for us to have stolen his ladder as he has about 5 big rottweiler and doberman guard dogs in his back yard all the time and a big tall fence going all around his yard. Did he really think we climbed his fence and braved his "dawgs" and i guess busted into his shop and then brought the ladder back over the fence with us?
bUT the thing is, we DID have his ladder. It was in our shed when we moved in FOUR YEARS ago and we had no idea it belonged to him... thought it belonged to our house. We have used it lots of times, including in the front yard to clean gutters on multiple occasions when he was out in his front yard. He had seen us using it (had brown paint on it so he could tell) and he never said anything to us about it or asked about it or anything, just called the cops and accused us of stealing it. Of course we gave him his ladder back, but we would have done so anyway if he had asked us about it or told us it was his.

like i said, WEIRD-O

Mama to 3 boys

My neighbor (one of those new city lot neighborhoods) like to have people over; mostly they just drink beer on the patio talking--a little annoying at 10pm but not too bad.

One night they put up a movie screen/projector watched a loud movie around 10pm and had a DJ. We guess someone called the cops because it never happened again.

"It should be a rule in all prophylactic work that no harm should ever be unnecessarily inflicted on a healthy person (Sir Graham Wilson, The Hazards of Immunization, 1967)."

When I was in elementary school my family rented a row home in a not-so-great area. The man who lived in the house next door to us taped pornography, that he'd ripped out of magazines, up on the wall in his living room. Like, where a regular family would have some nice family photo...he had crotch shots.

Later we moved to a nicer area, but still lived in a row home. We had an older couple as our immediate neighbors. Eventually the man and woman divorced and the woman remained in the house. She began abusing prescription drugs and losing her mind. Despite my parents best efforts to help her she refused all help. We could hear her screaming and talking at all hours of the day and night...she lived alone. She died alone in the house and was there for a week before anyone found her.

Now that I am a homeowner, we live next to, but not connected to, a single mother of two teenage boys. ALL.SHE.EVER.DOES.IS.YELL. They have a pool and have get togethers in their backyard which stretch into the late hours. The worst part about it is, their guests are incredibly loud and curse A LOT. Their yard is right next to our 3 year old, and 3 month old's bedroom windows
