    new neighbors have moved in and now all of the sudden we get a notice to call the animal shelter
    they complained about firecrackers and every thing
    the first thing they did before move in was put up a big privacy fence and made a law firm with the other neighbors about cutting down trees
    They think they moved into the city and bought an expensive house so they are to good to deal with people who have lived here for a while

    What's up with having to call the animal shelter??? Plant Oleander along the fence and tell them it makes a great tea. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    You should kill them with kindness, bake them some cookies or something.

    Your roosters and your firecrackers are driving me crazy. Don't cut down any more trees or I'll call my lawyer again. And what's wrong with my fence?!

    You would think people would have better things to do when first moving in than picking arguements with neighbors. Or at anytime!Sigh.
    Though I am moving, I do like my close neighbors. We mind our own business. The ones that dont live next door, not so much.[​IMG]

    good grief. you'd think the first thing someone would do when purchasing a home in the neighborhood is make friends with everyone around them! i can't imagine choosing to alienate all my neighbors, then trying to live there happily.

    we had a weird neighbor - very standoffish, but we did our best to understand her ways and be nice...

    she recently sold the house and said "i tried to sell it to people who would be nice for you guys to have living next door to you"
