Sorry for the long post. It just amazes me that something so small could erupt into such an imbroglio.

First, I’ve been a member for some time, and read technical boards frequently for the wonderful wealth of knowledge. On that note, hello to all.

I figured arfcom could lend some wisdom on a neighbor dispute. I’ve lived in the same house (a very nice, well kept neighborhood) here in Colorado for over 25 years. I’m not all that social (as in street parties and such), but know some folks and wave whenever I see anyone. I’m a friendly guy, but I prefer to keep to myself.

The setup:
I’m having a large company do some remodeling in the house and they, in turn, use subcontractors. Just last week we had over 30” inches of the white stuff, yesterday another 10+” and it keeps coming.

The dispute:
A complete vindictive ass that my family has known for many years in business has moved in down the street (I live at the top of a T intersection). He is the type who manipulates people to win favor – just a little bitch if you ask me, and was never honest in business. But, as sheeple are, most don’t see through his façade. His recent move is to spend countless hours everyday shoveling everyone’s walk up and down the street– and they just think he is the best thing since sliced bread!

Yesterday evening when leaving, one of the contractors got stuck in a snow bank in front of a house across the street and down the hill. He finally gets his rig free, but slid up on the sidewalk and spread snow on it for about 15 feet or so. So this little bitch attention whore knocks on my door a couple hours later as asks if the worker was going to come back and clear the walk that he has kept clear – this is not this little bitch’s house! I told him plainly that I would NOT call the guy (don’t know his last name or have his number) and have him drive an hour back across town in near blizzard conditions to remedy a petty problem. I then grabbed my 6920 loaded with 30 rounds of bandit killin’ XM855 and said to get the hell off my porch – yeah right, in my dreams! I really told him I would come take a look, but I never got a chance because 5 minutes later he had it cleared – yeah, a big fucking problem that was!

Well, he was out there waving his arms and pointing at my house as he spread his bullshit story to some neighbors. Today as my wife was shoveling our walk and driveway, another neighbor was now spreading this bullshit story, within earshot of my wife, that I refused to help.

Today, I had to go over and explain the situation to the owner and everything is fine. We had single malt and caught up on our lives. However, it seems that over this little gripe the bich is casting me as the street asshole and everyone seems to be enamored with this little bitch troublemaker.

Am I wrong here? It wasn’t me, it wasn’t my truck, at was only a little snow – my, oh, my! What say the hive mind?

I really think I need out of this damn city!

Fuck him.  Fuck your neighbors.  Buy ammo.

Rather than just be known as the neighborhood asshole, be known as the crazy gun nut asshole (who seems high stung and might snap and kill all of you at the drop of a hat).

Sure beats 'the guy who wouldn't shovel someone else's walk"...

Yeah, he moved in last spring and I have ignored him - know what a little shit he is. I don't really care what anyone thinks, but I'd like to keep on good terms with most. He is just the type of little bitch to get into your shit. He started throwing around city laws on shoveling, so I could see him causing more petty problems in the future. He actually called some homeowners who live out of state and are trying to sell, that they need to clear their walks so the old folks have a place to stroll the neighborhood, and that city law allows 24 hours to do so! They live out of state you asshole, leave them alone!

Oh, well, that's life, but I sure can't play these fucking female games with a man. I know it's better not to tangle with vindictive, evil people as general rule. But, I sure as HELL won't back down to 'em!

I just can't fathom that is my responsibility to clear someone else's mistake. I just can't stand this socialist thinking.

Worse than Cali. New Jersey if I remember correctly. I do have two new dykes from Cali that just moved in next door - I'm getting closed in! Maybe once he finds out out about those two gems he'll turn them against this known right-winger. Ah, fuck it, living out in the sticks is sounding better and better each day - I grew up in this city and now that the californicators are taking over I can't stand the place.

Throw a snowball loaded with skunk skreen on his porch.  The delivery system will melt, destroying any evidence.  The skunk skreen will act as a persistant agent for several days, causing nausea and irritation.   Colorado is the wilderness, these things happen.

I like the skunk skeen idea, very sneaky. I probably won't have to resort to games though as I hope his true colors will show, and you usually can't beat people like this anyway - they just keep coming and coming and coming with that petty behind your back stuff that you really can't stop. Oh, and I sure meant no offense to all the good folks who have escaped to Colorado from locals less inclined to freedom.

Two years yes, but lots of knowledge gleaned from technical boards. I just read and never really get around to posting.

Did I overuse bitch? Yeah, maybe I did. Well, now I guess I've conveyed how much love I feel for him and the little bitch games he plays?

Is "little bitch" a common "verbage" in Colorado? A good friend of mine spent a few years in Colorado and tends to use the same term quite a bit.

[#21]
Actually, I guess it is part of the Colorado lexicon and a bit strange. I don't use that term much, but I'm just really fumed right now. Calling a guy a bitch is more of an insult than asshole or the like, and in this case wholly appropriate.

I think the point is, he is acting like a little bitchy, gossiping woman - a little bitch!

I had THE EXACT SAME THING happen to me!

What I did was wait for the neighbor behind the hedges around his house, I then jumped out and stabbed him through the eye with a sharpened file I got while in prison.  I took a razorblade and cut out his guts and spread them in the snow spelling 'FUCK YOU" with his intestines.

It seemed to work pretty well for me.....................

wait till he's gone a for a bit and snowblow the snow on his front lawn at his front door (burying his front door under a big snowbank of snow)

Uptight, no. Venting on arfcom, yes. Like I said, I keep to myself. I don't sweat the little stuff (and this guy does), but when somebody smears my good name...

I was actually very calm throughout - I wasn't out there smearing his name, waving my arms, pointing, and making a federal case out of a little snow on a sidewalk - snow in Colorado, oh my!

I actually don't give a shit that he has taken it upon himself to "shepherd" his whole street, but when someone brings trouble to my doorstep all bets are off. People like this just thrive on this type of stuff, and if they want they WILL involve anyone they fancy as a target. I suppose he could be pissed that my wife and I drive by his house at least 4 times a day and have never acknowledged him  - we have just completely ignored him.

sta1treeman, do you think I should have helped? I don't - not me, not my truck, just a contractor hired by a large company.

If the owner had asked, I would have helped the man. But, this little bitch? I won't have some busybody dictate my actions.

Who cares if I've posted so little in the past? I have now. In this case, I wanted to know if there was anyone who has a differing opinion on the matter. I know what I think - it's between the contractor and the owner.

use your truck to do donuts on his front lawn and fling snow all over the place.

(what? you don't have a truck? well there's your first problem...)

Of course I have a truck; I live in Colorado. Silly? OK. Just asking if anyone thought I had responsibility here as an acquaintance actually suggested I did. I think differently.

It sounds to me more like good, old fashioned rage than guilt. Not that there is anything wrong with rage.

Whatever you decide to do, I recommend first a heroic intake of Jack Daniels before taking action, but that is just me.

that aint nothin the retard next door has threatened to shoot me, abduct my cat and bring it to the aspca, and frivilously calls police . case in point:
9/06
I am mowing the lawn using a weedwacker. it was about a foot high.the weedwacker displaces cut vegetation laterally about 6 inches max. some clippings therefore were on his side of the lawn.

his wife knocks on my door tells me to clean that up its not fair the have some blades of grass on thier side.

I tell her to get off my property and with the history we have they have nerve to ask anything of me.

police show up. police tell me to appease neighbor. I ask " HAS THE LAW BEEN BROKEN?"  reply " NO"

after standard lecture police leave and as they do so retard neighbor begins cursing me out.
I ask him :
" DID YOU GET A PERMIT FOR THOSE NON CODE COMPLIANT FENCE SECTIONS IN YOUR BACKYARD?"

He says go ahead call. I say yeah I got a phone too.

he had to tear down his fence and build a new one.

BTW i have not mowed the lawn since , I may do it sometime next year.

I'm in complete agreement with your actions. Your neighbor sounds like a real piece of work. There is nothing worse than a busybody, do gooder, gossiping neighbor.

As far as post count,  you don't seem to post unless you have something serious on your mind. I was curious whether you wanted other opinions because you felt like you were wrong.
Talking shit about you is bad enough, but the kicker for me was him calling people who are out of town, trying to sell their home, wanting them to get the snow off the sidewalk for the old folks. That is a sign of a real asshole, and leaves now doubts as to what kind of prick he is.

Yeah, I do have my 25+ years of being a good neighbor going for me and that may mitigate it somewhat. The problem is, now I've apparently "done" something through his rumors. And you know how some people are, they will gladly ignore all the good years over a stupid argument. I guess I could blame myself somewhat too as I haven't exactly been the most social person - the kiss-ass gets all the praise, while I keep to myself.

Oh, well, I can get used to being on the outs with some of the sheeple. I'm being castigated over principle, and that I can take as I know I'm right. I guess you takes your lumps if you are going to stand up to evil people. Like 2111onetwo's situation, I can see this thing degrading in the future.

I just can't believe how idiotic this thing is. I mean, I'm on an internet forum talking about my gossiping neighbor and a little snow. Maybe I shouldn't have brought up the topic, but I figured this forum might lend some support or wisdom and maybe even get a laugh out of it. Thanks for the levity on the subject.

Thanks sta1treeman. That was very revealing in my mind too. Basically this guy's business is doing poorly and he lives off of his wife's rather nice income. So, I suppose getting into everyone's business on the street is his current occupation.
