Our next door neighbor is having issues with flooding in their backyard. Because of this, they have gone to the home builders of our development - there are lots and lots of issues with most of the homes in our development because the builders are not good builders.
They are famous for passing the buck and not fixing the issues, and now they are trying to blame the neighbor's flooding issues on us, even though the flooding issues take place nowhere near our property line and we have no sprinkler leaks.
So the other day the one builder rep came to my house and I let him look at our automatic sprinkler timer. He was going to reset everything we had on there - he just stared pressing buttons and I yelled, "Stop! What are you doing?!" We have it set to water for 5 minutes 3 times a week, 2x a day, which is what our landscaper told us would work for our lawn. Builder told us we are watering too much....
Same builder rep called me last night and said they wanted to bring in their own landscaper to dig up our yard
to prove where the flooding in neighbor's yard is coming from.
Me: I'm afraid that won't be possible.
Them: Well when would be a good time for us to come?
Me: I'm afraid that won't be possible. Ever.
Them: Oh, so then you will take responsibility for neighbor's yard and coordinate with them?
Me: No. Their issues have nothing to do with us. We have verified this through our own landscaper.
Them: Well that's what we're TRYING to do....
Me: Their issues have nothing to do with us.
Them: Is your husband home? Can I speak with him?
Me: I'm afraid that won't be possible. Goodbye.
I was irritated that this guy made the interesting assumption that I didn't know what I was talking about and he needed to talk to DH instead. But I was really proud of how well I handled the call. Now, let's see if they show up anyway and try to get in our yard today... I wouldn't put it past them.
