Default is it me or is this country full of hypersensitive complainers?

I had an activity at my house over the weekend where I had a lot of people at my house and cars parked on my property for the day. It was a half day Saturday and all day Sunday. I live in a decent neighborhood, and I didn't break any HOA rules. Of coarse I get a neighbor complaining who spends exactly 2 seconds driving by and lives a street over. I go and knock on his door to see what his problem is and he says its bad for the neighborhood and property values. I'm like its just for the weekend and I don't think it matters. we're not making any noise and its all on my property. Why do people complain for the sake of complaining? They act like they are traumatized as if they witnessed a murder. I know later in the week I'll here from other neighbors who are constant complainers also. I know their are constant complainers also on THT, just because they like to complain and are hypersensitive. I feel this is a big problem with our society in general and you always have to be ready to defend yourself even though you are legally and morally able to do what you are doing. Is it just me or do others feel the same?

50% of people are mentally ill or suffering from some neurosis, when you are in traffic, look right than look left, take your pick. If I was your neighbor, I would politely bring over a 12 pack and respectfully ask if I could join your swingers party.

Heard from a manager at work: "No matter what you do, at least 10% of the people won't like it." I decided that manager was an optimist.

We do not have one but that may be why some people like HOA's.

A quick search turned up this.

I believe the OP is talking about a temporary situation that will leave no permanent damage or effects and people still find fault.
There will always be people that like to complain, point fingers, etc...

Some people aren't happy. Because of this they want to control others. It's pretty common, actually.

We need to review photos of the lady guests that were enjoying the pool and hot tub before we can vote for one side or the other.

I am a firm believer in immediately and overwhelmingly meeting frivolous complainers like you described with great hostility. Treating them nicely only empowers, and emboldens them to complain again. When they are met with what they think is a crazy man they think twice.

In my experience, this only makes it worse, because then they believe they have a duty to protect society from you.

I don't live in a HOA-controlled neighborhood. When I bring my boat home in the summer, I'll sometimes leave it in the driveway for a week or so. My city doesn't have any ordinances against this (that I'm aware of) unless it's in the street.

One of my neighbors came to me to complain about it, threatening to call city hall. We're not friendly or unfriendly, I barely know the guy. I asked him why he cared. He said a few things about not wanting to look at it, stuff like that. I said something like I wouldn't care if he did the same and he answered, "well, not everybody can afford a big boat like that."

It was then I realized it had nothing to do with having to look at it in my driveway.

Exactly why I will never live in one . I pay my taxes I should be able to do as I please as long as it isn't illegal or immoral

^^^^This. The older I get the more I see this to be true. Once you realize this to be the case it is easier to deal with the lunatics in the workplace and elsewhere.
