Ok I know I am not the only person with a stupid neighbor. I need to hear about yours so I don't go crazy with this guy. 1) The guy has 5 kids who are all little cretins! They used to throw rocks at my Rottweiler puppy until I talked to one of the kids through the fence and told him he was out of line. This seems to have stopped it. Yes, I did talk to the father who seemed to not give a darn that his child was training my dog to distrust kids. 2) They just got a new puppy who dug under the fence and decided to come and play with both of my Rottweilers. They leave this dog out until about 11:00pm each night and all it does is whine at their door. This is the same neighbor who said if he ever found one of my dogs on his property he would shoot it! Ohhh also, I chatted with one of his kids today because he threw a ball over the fence and I asked how their puppy was. He said the pup was doing good and he misses his cat. I asked what happened to the cat and he said, "it died in the trunk of the car when we moved here." They own a friggen Saturn!!! They put it in a pet crate in the trunk when they moved here from Idaho! Holy crap. 3) They moved here early last summer and still have Idaho plates. Argh! This pisses me off. 4) They have a trampoline and they let their 2 youngest ones play on it unattended. age 2 years and 4 years! The little one fell off earlier today and was screaming up a storm. Well at least they take care of their property. Makes me appreciate my other neighbors better. The guy on the other side of me is a gun nut ex navy guy. Really cool. Oh and it is better than the preacher and his wife that used to live there. One night I found his wife half passed out in my driveway. Then she went inside and proceeded to take her clothes off, stand in front of the window and lift the shade up and down slowly. Ohh man, I am cursed I guess, in a way, it makes me laugh. I had to share. Do you have any wierdo's next door?

Yes. One has this stupid little dog that will yip for hours on end until they let the thing back in the house. When I was sick the thing went on a 9 hour bark fest. If I could have stood up without falling over, that dog would have got a 40gr lesson at 1300fps.

I have elderly folks on both sides of me. The lady is really hard of hearing and you can hear her car radio inside our house when she pulls in the driveway. At least it isn't rap. [:)] One day I was home from work and she came home. I could hear Rush Limbaugh in my living room from her car with the windows closed. The other side is a great old guy named George. He turned 90 this past summer. Plays golf twice a week, drives (well!), and always picks up our mail while we are gone and carries our recycle bin and trash cans back up the driveway for us. I consider him one of our layers of security around the house. [;)] The American Rifleman and Guns and Ammo are always read when I pick them up. [:)] I feed him venison whenever he wants it. Oh yeah, he has a lady friend that is at least 60+ and sometimes "she even stays over". I keep meaning to ask hi if he fought in "The War". I would love to hear those stories. George is the best!

My wife and I were married in our backyard. We had a large group of family and friends ready to come over complete with an outdoor DJ set up for the reception. As we live in the city of Albuquerque, we went door to door for three blocks around our neighborhood and asked/advised/invited everyone to come to the reception. By doing this we had hoped to keep the complaints to a minimum and to let the ceremony go off without a hitch. We recieved several RSVP's for the reception and assurances from everyone that they would not interfere with the festivities. As the day came I had to have an emergency root canal and was hopped up on percocets, so I was feeling no pain. The ceremony came and we were enjoying our wedding when in the middle of our ceremony the neighbor's dog began to bark incessantly. Throught the rest of the wedding, and this can be heard in the video, nothing but Oscar the dog barking. And this was a neighbor that had said he would keep Oscar inside! Later after we had left and the reception was going full speed, that same neighbor called the police complaining of noise, twice! Oh well.

In our old house, the neighbors behind us were true pricks. The guy who designed it (the father of the family) made it so every window was perfectly positioned to look into the windows in our house. We thought it was a coincidence until we caught EVERY member of their family looking into our house with binoculars! To make matters worse the wife and the husband (both of whom were probably the inspiration of fugly.com) were always having sex around dinner time in the bathroom with the shades open, and this was the bathroom window that just happened to face our glass walled dinner room. I did get some fun out of it though. One night I excused myself from the table, called up their son and said "Hey Tyler, it is Kyle, guess what your parents are doing!" He never talked to me again, but somehow I never felt like I lost that much. Kyle

I live next door to some real doozies. I am not sure if they are stupid or just trying to kill each other. One evening while sitting on the front porch enjoying a frosty premium and watching the kids play in the yard, I notice the guy next door and his wife trying to fix their Yugo/festiva pos. Well he is under the hood with his hand stuck in the carb. He yells at his wife to "turn her over". She proceeds to crank the engine. Well either she did not know to push the clutch in or thought it was in neutral but the car lurches forward with this guys hand in the carb. It rolls up on his foot and the rod holding up the hood comes out and the hood nails him in the head. The next thing you hear is the car backfiring through the carb. I was in stitches I collected the kids and went inside and just laughed the rest of the night. A few weeks later, same couple are in front again this time working on the lawn mower. Well he can't seem to get the darned thing started, so he wants to check the spark plug. He pulls the plug and is holding against the block and tell his wife to "push the button"(its electric start). Well she does and this poor SOB starts screaming. The lady stops pressing the button but this guy shaking is hand and dancing around the yard. I starts to chase her and ends up falling over and slipping a disk. I later found out he had hold of the connector instead of the insulated wire. I guess he kind of felt like he got hit with a cattle prod. Now I keep my video camera handy in case they try and fix something else.

Mine are both cool. One is an avid hunter and has a trophy room. He has a full Grizzley that he got in Alaska, so He's no problem with my guns. In fact when I'm trying to load up the car he usually is out chatting about the various millitary type rifles.

Do the "right thing" [;)] Call CPS (Child Protective Services) and let them know about the unattended children on the trampoline and how one of them fell off and was hurt. Also note other child abuse/neglect events you have noticed. Call Animal Control and the police regarding their dog, cruelty to the cat, and their kids for throwing rocks at your dog and your other property. They are to properly secure their animals in their yard, or keep them on a leash while outside the secured areas.

Well for 10 years I had a family of crazy neighbors who would watch everything outside of their window and stare even at midnight... the light would pop on and one of the assholes would be watching you... They knew it bothered us but didnt give a shit. So we moved into a nice apartment ! and had to listen to peoples kids run around at all times of the day and rollerskate on the balcony... Then they moved out, and someone moves in who likes to play loud music and dont care how many people complain... I'm woken up by music at 8am somtimes.. [pissed]

I'm pretty lucky...well, fairly lucky. Lot's of gun owners in the neighborhood, I had just finished cleaning some Browning tripods and the guy across the street stops and comments, "Hey, nice Browning tripods...1919A4 or 6?". Gotta love that in a neighbor. But, in back of us through the trees...a family that cannot talk-they whine..mom whines, dad whines and the two kids whine. It's ugly...you kind've hope whiners won't breed..but they do. The other fun is two neighbors with dogs...who bark and bark and bark. One hound barks if he is outside...and he tends to be outside all the time. I've definitely thought of the anti-freeze treat for this dog...or warfarin. I talked to the Sheriff's office, talk about a catch-22. The county law has changed so that the cops can't give a ticket to these neighbors unless they are home or answer the door..so since the dog is outside whenever the people are away, and they bring it inside when they're home...they can't be given a ticket...very annoying.

The only problem I have with my neighbor is that her dog thinks my lawn is also its lawn. It doesn't crap here, it just comes over and tries to chase me out of "its" territory whenever I go outside. Since it's a chihuahua, the poor thing is rather comical. It's too agile to catch, and too pathetic to do more than jump on me whenever I turn my back. Its jaws are too small to bite anything, and it's too scared to come within five feet when I'm facing it. I just hope it doesn't get run over. They let it roam around outside quite a bit, and it wanders all over the street, the full length of the block.

Water is the best dog shutter upper there is without hurting the dog... I have great water pressure.. my neighbor had Pomeranians.... Outside, chained... yapping yapping yapping yapping yapping.. I bought a landscape water switch and a directional water jet .... planted it in my yard facing the dogs , adjusted it to go left to right to where the dogs couldn't get away from it... the water switch is low voltage... I use used a doorbell transformer to power it.. The switch was on a lead cord in my house so I had it on my desk and carried it to bed... whenever they started barking I flipped the switch and presto! no barking.. when the people left, if they barked I sometimes left the water run for an hour for payback... One morning at my desk, the dogs started barking... I was on the phone and I hit the switch... I heard a woman screaming my name outside... It was the dog owner.. She was getting soaked feeding her dogs.... LMAO... now there were 3 wet dogs... [rolleyes]

I've owned three homes. Each one had a Queer for a neighbor. Queer #1 was the strangest of them all. He worked for Social Security. His home was like a magnet for neighborhood boys. I think he was in Boy Scouts and took them camping. Anyway, he always had boys hanging around. That was 20 years ago and I get the creeps thinking about it. Queers #2a & 2b were a strange couple. 2a was an unemployed wacko and 2b worked as a nurse. One day they got in a vicious argument and 2a slammed the door so hard he broke it. I'd heard all the yelling and screaming and was watching the action from my window. When I saw 2a coming across the lawn to my house, presumably to "talk", I literally ran to the closet and got the Colt .45 ACP. Fortunately the prick turned around. I ended up blowing them into the landlord who evicted them. Queer #3 is the son of my current neighbors. He's a very talented kid who worked as a singer and dancer for a top female country singer who is a favorite of many on this board. Now he has a floral shop. He doesn't come around much since going out on his own which is good because I don't want my boys hanging with him. Hard to believe so many Queers since all three homes are in rural areas.

Great place to live.
Link Posted: 4/23/2002 1:52:26 PM EDT
The last place I lived was terrible. I had 2 neighbors that were completely oblivious to the world around them. One would put his barbeque full of sawdust and burn it right next to my place, filling my place with smoke, also always pounding nails and making noise and blasting his outdoor speakers all weekend long. The other one had a little yippy dog that they would leave out when they left and it would bark for hours, they often would do this on major holidays like Thanksgiving, they would leave town and leave the dog behind. I still want to kill that dog and its been 6-7 months gone by. It also seemed that the ONLY form of entertainment their 75 children liked was bouncing a ball, hours and hours of bouncing the ball. I still want to kill that ball to this day. At that place I was living in a cottage behind a house and my elderly landladies dead beat 45 year old pervert son would come home and hang out in the shed next to my cottage. He would talk to himself and say perverted things loud enough for me to hear. One night I had to threaten him with an ass kicking which he heeded but not entirely. He's really lucky I didn't ruin his world. My place now is better than that, but I still have a yippy mutt neighbor with the same kind of worthless hairball that barks constantly when its outside or alone. I had to take another cottage deal because my last landlady only gave me 30 days notice and so Im stuck with a couple of middle aged partier types who drink like fish and hang outside in front of my door and play the radio everyday and bbq every single night. They are cool, but it gets old after a while, especially when you come home from work and just want to chill. Needless to say Im looking for another place. Probably have to take a 1 bedroom apt and who knows what hassles I'll have. Like someone else said, sometimes the only way to get any peace and quiet is move out to the boonies and have a lot of land around you. I sure wish I could do that. These experiences have made it difficult for me to have any faith in human decency and have lead me to believe that people just aren't as good as they used to be when my parents grew up. Nobody cares anymore. Degradation of society. Some people wonder why the X generation is so jaded, its because we caught the end of times that were better and now everything is just F-ed up. Our inheritance is a broken bankrupt society of self centered moronic sheep who can't see past their own noses. At least for the majority anyway. I know there are still some good folk out there, like on this forum, but they are fewer and farther between these days.
