I have the worst neighbor
« on: December 01, 2013, 01:19:28 AM »
that lives right next door.  And I have the best 4 neighbors living on the other side.  We live on a cul-de-sac.  All the good neighbors are the best!  The woman who lives next door fancies herself as a gangsta momma.  She is 48 and looks good for her age, but yikes, she is the mouthiest woman I have ever known.  And possibly the foulest.  Her oldest is 30 and he is in and out of prison.  We all know when he is out cause he is a major drama king and gets into loud arguments laced with bad language at 2:30 am in their front yard.  Thank goodness my bedroom is on the other side of the house, but my good neighbors keep me updated on all the commotion.  The police are regular visitors.  The neighbors on the other side next to them have moved out twice, they couldn't cope.  We keep thinking they will go into foreclosure since they can't seem to keep their jobs. So far no luck!  My coping tactic is to ignore them completely, no eye contact.  It works best for me.  My first conversation with her went like this, OP "Could you ask your teenage son to not swear when he is in my yard?  My children are small and they don't need to hear that."  Gangsta momma "Get the f*** off my porch, get out of my yard!"  This was screamed at me loudly.  Said teenager boy guffawed loudly and rudely at this.  No wonder he spends most of his now-adult lifetime at the graybar motel.  I have many, many more stories about this neighbor.  Anyone have any better neighbor war stories?

We lived in a middle class neighborhood. I could stand in our front yard and point to a house of ill repute, a gambling den, and a street drug sales house.

We didn't have any personal interactions, but the drug house was raided at least once a week and we used to say that was out weekly block party. The ambulance wouldn't go there without a police escort.

Then the neighbor next door had eight kids that lived back and forth between that house and a house down the street. I never did figure out what that was all about. These were crawl space houses, 3 bed, 1 bath, 950 sq ft. They weren't really destructive, but borrowed food often and never replaced it until I finally "ran out", and if we left our garage door open would "borrow" tools without asking. They played basketball in our driveway after we asked them not to - huge liability! We had to take the goal down, so our son couldn't play when they came home. There were a few domestic disputes with the cops called, but no violence that reached us.

Mostly minor annoying things. I much prefer that to most of the stories I've read here on eHell, but it is kind of nice to tell about it.

Nothing likes this, but if it counts...

Our next door neighbour recently sued us because *dramatic pause* a bird pooped on his head! It's our fault you see, since we have these unnatural things in our yard, called trees.

No matter that those trees are at least 50 years old and he moved here about 20 years ago.

Wait, did he only threaten or did he actually found a lawyer that would take on the case?  :o
