I haven't been around in a while but maybe you remember.
I had this thread about a year and a half agohttp://www.etiquettehell.com/smf/index.php?topic=101040.msg2489178#msg2489178
We moved into a brand new neighborhood and from the beginning all one of our neighbors could talk about was getting a fence. In 2011 my husband & I were going through some financial and health problems so it wasn't high on our list of priorities, but they were really pushing us to an obnoxious point. To bring you up to date, summer was over fall came, they weren't really around for several months, summer of 2012 we barely saw them. They mentioned the fence once and we were like, ok ready when you are and never heard from them. This will probably be the year we complete this, even if it means taking a loan out to do so. The husband is cordial with us but anytime we see the wife, she is standoffish or flat out ignores us.
I'll admit, we are clutterbugs and have radio flyer style wagon that has been in our backyard all winter, which we couldn't fit into our garage. It is well within our property line.
So today I am off from work and bringing my daughter to a birthday party when we are out front loading in to our car.
Wife, grandmother & kids are outside as well. I see grandmother she says hello to me, the wife comes out and approaches me.
She asks me if I am still using the wagon. She didn't know the exact name of it, but after a few minutes I knew what she was talking about. I said, yes, we are still using it.
She then said, well, why didn't you put it away during the winter?
I muttered something about not having enough room for it and got out of there.
The conversation baffled me. She doesn't speak English well so I couldn't figure out by the tone what her intentions were in the conversation. After being shunned she suddenly starts asking about things that quite frankly aren't her business.
What do you think?
