UGH - My Neighbor is a Pain


If I had a yard I would be so tempted to do this to my neighbor.  Not all of my neighbors, mind you - just a family in specific that lives next door to me.  The kind of family that makes me shake my head in disgust and wonder why in the world I haven't moved to another country.  The kind of neighbors that don't discipline their kids, that take advantage of others, and just are generally irritating.

I'll admit, I've been brooding a little.  OK - I've been brooding a lot.  It started a few months ago - The neighbor got preggers, again.  Also, pertinent to this story, she drives a Suburban assault vehicle, and in my complex - the covered parking slots are not very big (But she insists on parking under the covered parking with the vehicle anyway).  

I have several rants and I could go on and on about this family.  Like that one time when her kid just came into my house and walked down my stairs?  How about the many times that they just open my front door?  Of course, there are also the times when she asks me to pick up her newspapers and then doesn't even say "Thank-you" - or what about the time when she had her kids knock on my door at 10:45 at night to say that they just got home from looking at Christmas Lights and it was so fun.  *Um - some of us actually do go to sleep*.

Anyway, when this particular woman started to park her assault vehicle under the covered parking, I was fine.  I was driving my little car at the time.  But, she continued to park closer and closer to the center line... why?  Well, because the vehicle is really too large to be parking under the covered parking.  But, she continues to do it.

SO, The misses and I decided to trade up on cars, and I started to drive the van - also the weather is turning cold, and I am short - so I figured, "If she can park under there, I can park the Granny Van under there too."  And I did.  And she promptly wrote me a note about how it was hard for her to fit her vehicle in the spot with the way that I was parking.  Um, excuse me - i am in my lines - go park your assault weapon somewhere else.

She hasn't stopped, but she she continues to park very close to the lines and my vehicle.
So, I started thinking about it - and I think that she just thinks that she's better than anyone else.  She probably feels jaded at the fact that her architect husband is working a 2nd job as a Janitor and she's stuck with three (Almost 4) dumb kids. (And believe me, they are dumb - guess they get it from their parents).  Either way, I've decided that I might actually really dislike them - After all, I still have not gotten over the fact that she had the audacity to actually write me a note about parking.

So, I figured that I would vent here.  My Neighbor - I hope she moves.  She's an absolute pain.

I feel so much better now - I'd feel even more better if someone could get me a plant in a pot and I could make one of those bending over guys... Just suggesting!
