Everyone has one unless you live out in the far away country in which case you may be lonely and should go have lunch with someone. I just wanted to take a few / couple minutes of your blogging time to share all too familiar complaining rant.
Okay so it’s a little hard to rant when Adele is playing on my Ipod, but none the less I don’t want to disappoint you so rant on shall I go…
We have this neighbor, as the title suggests. When they first moved in a few years ago the guy was a Houston cop and in the Army Reserves, for which we are grateful that he chose to serve not only the city (where we don’t live) and the country in which we do. So after living there for about a year he was called to duty overseas. That year we mowed his yard as his wife didn’t seem able. We don’t know why she wasn’t, as we never saw her, she worked at night. Then the following year (he was still over there) she pulled in the drive way just as my son finished mowing HER front yard…
Are you ready for this? She just walked in the house, didn’t smile, didn’t wave H E double hockey sticks she didn’t even look at us! Ya know that was back when gas had went up to like $3 a gallon. So I was pissed, wouldn’t you had been. Yes I think so. Just agree with me okay remember this is a complaint post.
I promptly announced to my family, that’s was IT NO more mowing of her yard! PERIOD! Hum, she didn’t seem to notice or care or whatever. After about a month she mowed it. And now about this time we were seeing her more often coming and going and such. Still not a smile or wave-nothing. Okay so she only seemed to be able to mow when the grass, now weeds got knee high. Beloved was all it looks bad and stuff like that. Nope if she can’t even manage a wave we will not manage to cut her yard. Picture if you dare me almost stomping my foot for emphasis.
PS: remember when we had to have our tree cutters trim her tree off our roof? Speaking of her back yard have you seen that?
No wonder we get snakes. And now four years latter it’s the same ol’ thing. She won’t cut her grass and neither will we! Humph! That my dear internets is the reason what you sometimes see yards like this.
So do you have good neighbors or what?
