Default RE: The worst neighbors?

My neighbor painted his house the color of the yellow submarine. They used to keep two cockatoo's outside--directly behind my fence. Their squalking could wake the dead. They have two dogs back there that live on a concrete slab. Those dogs never get walked or played with--they use them like a burglar alarm. Their sh*t and pi*s bakes on the concrete for weeks until they get around to hosing it down. Horrible.

Neighbors, I’ve got the best.
While the house was under construction the contractor, another old buddy, subbed back the electrical, framing, drywall and finish to me. I would work my day job then go work on the house. A lot of the neighbors would come by and see what was being built and ignored me thinking I was a tradesman. Their comments were very revealing. The fellow across the street stopped over a few times and we started talking. Every day he would stop over and see the progress I was making. One day, after a full day of “Real Job” then a few hours crawling through the trusses stringing wire my neighbor stopped by and must have seen how ragged out I looked. He suggested I “give it a break” and come over for a drink.
We sat on his patio and had more than a few Morgan and coke’s, traded life stories and became fast friends. I eventually had to call my wife to drive me home. We were hammered.
That was 5 years ago and we are still tight.

Just plant a hedge aimed at the bad neighbors house.

Actually, we got lucky, we have the greatest neighbors a person could have.
