Title: Posts on your neighborhood's facebook or Nextdoor group
Post by: michigancat on April 16, 2020, 08:02:23 PM
One of my favorite things to do lately is to see what the mostly old people in my neighborhood are angry about or confused by. Keep in mind this is a very active group that's heavily moderated to stay on topic.

People are turning my normally quiet neighborhood into a  recreational area, and while I am glad to see them running, walking, biking, I am peeved that most are without masks! Windy here, and wind carries the  virus, even more so if you are biking. I see women and  children, no masks. Elderly, no masks. Paddle boarders, no masks. Boaters hosting parties, no masks. I was sick for over three weeks  starting Feb. 14 and only started going out this month...with mask, one I  wear across my nose and mouth, not my chin or forehead as many do.  PLEASE Wear A Mask.

To the lady who wished my husband and I get coronavirus on XXXXXXXX Trail this morning...
I wish you peace and love. You must be already having a terrible day.  I can't imagine being so mad at a complete stranger that I would shout something so vile. I know my husband reminded you that dogs were to be on a leash inside the park, but your response was WAY OUT OF LINE. I sure hope the children who were with you don't follow your example this morning.

Oh crap! I never paid attention to this before! My suburb has 22,000 members. The first thing that catches my eye is controversy over this youngster doing youngster things in the group. Lol.

good replies to this one!

That's not nice at all but I think sometimes it's better and safe to mind our own business..it's not worth telling people anything anymore...I'm sure she knows to keep her dog on the leash she just wants to be a bad dog mom that doesn't follow the rules...just pray for her

Like everyone else said, it’s not worth informing people that break the rules. Just call *the police* next time. They will handle it.

I have encountered too many off leash dogs out there while walking my dogs. The most difficult thing is when the unleashed dog runs up to my leashed dogs and disturbs crap. At that point the irresponsible owner has to come within 6 ft of me in order to grab their uncontrollable dog. It’s not the time for this type of behavior. I jokingly said aloud to my husband in front the last lady who did this “I should let our dog go loose too and see what happens “
Kidding of course, but she had a little dog and we have a much larger and a medium size dog. Her dog would’ve been hurt. Instead she had to get way too close to me in order to pick up her little ray of sunshine. Lol

XXXXXX trail seems to attract some nasty people. When SIP first started, we took a walk there and a group of middle-aged women were standing shoulder-to-shoulder, taking up the whole width of the trail, and when we asked them to give space, they screamed at us to get onto the grass instead.

Something to think about
 Let’s talk some trash. If you don’t put your cans out so he or she can automatically grab it with the arm, he’s coming in physical contact with everything on and around your can..... you then bringing it back into your house by you touching the can possibly possibly in a place where you don’t know he touched on your can. As I drove around town today, I see everybody’s cans up on the mow strip which is fine??, but you’re not going anywhere! block your rough ridin' driveway with the cans so the driver can easily grab it and go onto the next house because you don’t know what’s on his gloves from somebody else’s trash.  Is it rocket science? I am just gonna leave this right here, we have a truck in the yard on quarantine. Shits rough ridin' real folks ?

People are surprisingly tolerant and amused by Briana. Probably because they're all parents.

Comments on Briana.

Quote
What is the point of her posts? I tried to respond but couldn’t figure out why.

Maybe she needs a wellness check??

It’s just a matter of time until she gets kicked out of the group. She’s getting the attention that she wants

What is she? Like 12

WTF?

I vote for her to stay 🥰

Literally she is like literally a human disease 🤣 why do people talk like that

I'm built like a dump truck but at least I'm not a crack head looking for attention (with what seems like a fake profile) on a neighborhood group

she may need help people...wtf are we to judge?????

She looks like she’s 16. Probably needs some better parenting at home. 🤷🏼??? it’s honestly sad

Dude she’s like 17 leave her alone all of y’all

look at her previous posts she is obviously over 18 if she is even a real person.

Well let's help her instead of crush her!!! Come on people!!! We are so much better!!!

Jason Riggle’s posts are looking better and better...

if she needs to go literally half of the people on facebook do. just laugh about it and move along.

sorry but I can’t just laugh at the things she posts.

she is hateful but it’s better to laugh off the anger than to take it out on someone

This is what she wants lol

Her mom should have swallowed.

She’s just an attention starved a$$hole. I’d guess someone hiding behind a fake profile. And to those saying to leave her alone, maybe she needs to leave others alone first. You get back what you put out out there.

Anyone know where Briana lives? I think someone should to a well check... I’m not sure she is okay. (And I’m not being sarcastic or an bad person) seriously I’m concerned for her mental well-being

karma karma karma karma karma karma karma Covid-ameleon! That’s what got her.

How do idiots like you exist Briana Marie?

Missed this because I blocked her long ago. Suggest everyone do the same

I would feel sorry for except that someone who troll posts and runs their mouth like that deserves the backlash. I don't care how old she is.

I reported her

Not really. Just a bunch of people telling him that he's gross. Followed by some people telling him that he's lazy. Followed by a bunch of various weird instructions on how to boil eggs so that they're easier to peel. Followed by a guy who says he enjoys peeling eggs in the same way that he enjoys picking scabs. I wonder if he is the one who keeps posting other people's pimple popping vids.

I checked the next door suburb's facebook group (we live very near the border, so this is a legit move) and it appears to be heavily moderated. Heavily. Very wholesome! Which is kind of funny because when I searched for it, it was the first of two results:

[Suburb] Neighborhood Group - 21K members
[Suburb] Neighborhood Group for NICE people - 5K members

Landscapers (leaf blowers) fall under construction and are "unnecessary" during quarantine, right? Are they supposed to be out blowing dust still? If they're not supposed to be out can someone please provide a number to call to report them? These guys have always been argumentative and problematic and I've had enough.

It looks like a fillable Nextdoor form, but the letter did conclude with a person's supposed name.  That's why I was thinking maybe there's some referral bonus or something.  Anyway, creeped me out and made me not join.  But this thread might!

I don’t know if you can help me with this, but here goes: I have new neighbors who have been drilling, sawing, hammering, blasting music, and yelling at each other and their workers in their backyard for a few WEEKS now, usually seven days a week, often from morning until sundown. I am losing my mind.  I’m currently home all the time (sheltering in place) and it is extremely difficult to get work done with the relentless noise, and it’s not like I can go to the library or to a cafe to work. THERE IS NO ESCAPE. When I’m not working, I can’t even enjoy just reading a book or a phone call with family.  Much-needed naps, especially when I have migraines, are out of the question with all the drilling, sawing, and hammering, even with a pillow over my head. I am using a white noise machine and fan but that doesn’t seem to help. In desperation, I spent a small fortune on noise-canceling headphones, but I have a Eustachian tube disorder, so I can’t keep anything on or in my ears for any length of time. I wouldn’t dare sit on my patio because obviously that would make the noise even more unbearable, so instead I stay inside with all windows shut, heavy curtains drawn (in the hope they will help dampen noise a little), white noise or calming music playing, and it STILL sounds like they are yelling and hammering in my living room. It appears they (a young couple and a variety of workers and day laborers that come and go) are building shelves and furniture like desks and tables and perhaps crossfit boxes. The guy and his workers communicate by yelling to each other over loud music. The couple argues frequently, and since I can unfortunately hear EVERY SINGLE WORD they shout at each other, I know they both have terrible tempers, so I’m worried they will unleash their rage at me if I ask them to keep it down.  I emailed Sarah XXXX, the public information officer for XXXXX, over a week ago, but haven’t yet received a reply. I very reluctantly called the XPD non-emergency number (I truly hate to bother them- they have much more important things to deal with) and was told by the dispatcher that the noise is permissible in XXXXX, even on Sundays.  I asked a few neighbors in close proximity for advice, and some said they are also upset about the noise but they just hope or assume it will be over soon. Another neighbor pointed out that it is indeed terribly unpleasant, but that all homeowners make construction noise at one time or another. I have lived here for over 15 years and have never had a neighbor this inconsiderate (I’ve been very fortunate, I know). Another neighbor said he asked them to turn down the music and it led to an uncomfortable confrontation and did not help the situation. It’s pretty obvious these new neighbors don’t give a damn about making life miserable for everyone else. So, folks, do I just have to grin and bear it? Drink myself into a stupor from morning till night so I won’t care anymore? This is such a scary and stressful time for all of us, so I realize I’m probably more disturbed by this than I would normally be if I weren’t home ALL THE TIME and worried about the future and all the uncertainty, etc.

I need some help from the hive-mind. A few months ago we hired a contractor to build a chicken coop. It was supposed to be finished a few weeks ago, but the contractor ran behind in the build, and now we're all on lockdown, so it's not finished. It's missing an entry opening from the coop to the run, a ladder, and over the last few weeks the entire structure has started to warp and lean. All but the last 100 (due upon completion) has been paid. We reached out to the contractor but he has no intention of coming to finish the job and now wants more money to correct the issue with the warping (but he is still advertising his services to others). As of right now we cannot open the interior door, one of the exterior doors is sticking, we need a hole cut for the chickens to access the coop and we need a ladder as well as some help straightening the whole thing out to make it level and prevent the warp from worsening.
I'm not inclined to hire him to continue as it's been a frustrating process and I'm not confident in his ability to fix anything at this point. Nor do I want to send him more money that we have already paid at this point (nearly $2000).
Does anyone know a reliable contractor who might be able to fix these issues? We can guarantee that no one else would be anywhere in proximity during the fixes and I am happy to provide a mask, gloves and anything else that might be needed.
Our chicks are now 4 weeks old and we need the coop soon, otherwise we're going to have six house-chickens running around with the kids and the dog.

I like it when people know they're being a Karen and still go full Karen

Our only dispensary in town is not social distancing...on freaking 4/20. People are crowding next to each other, less than one foot apart, at the counters. There are x's marked on the floors, people aren't standing on them, and the security guards aren't enforcing social distancing. I asked to speak to the manager (yes, I went full Karen) and she said the ordinance says that if people are standing in line, like at the pharmacy, they don't have to social distance.
I told her that sounds incorrect. She said if I was uncomfortable, I could go stand in the corner and they would come to me. I told her everyone is uncomfortable because this puts people in a dangerous situation. She disagreed.
I will never be back because I refuse to support businesses that knowingly endanger our community. If you pay them a visit today, please let them know if you're uncomfortable with their social distancing, or lack thereof.
 UPDATE: I spoke to a very nice officer who said he would go speak to them and explain the ordinance. Yay XPD!

Yeah, I mean, they love rocks and crap but in the South they really like mud. I went craw fishing with my bro once in Louisiana. I saw like a lobster looking one at a lake in Colorado once too.

We are very concerned about our pool time.

Quote
No camp, swimming, or sports for the kids this summer. Is everyone ok with this? Not sure if it applies to neighnorhood pools but DeWine did announce no pools can open.

    I missed the live today. He said no camps, swimming, or sports? Private pools should not be applicable, only public

    Well there’s no way in hell he’s keeping me from opening my own pool!

    Any pool that multiple families use should be closed for a lil longer there are a lot of germs there

    Of course personal pools can open!

        Personal yes but what about neighborhood pools and Ymca's?

            those aren’t personal, so according to your post the answer is those aren’t opening? I didn’t watch today because I’m way deep into a dumb Netflix series.

            HOA pools will be decided by the Ohio Board of Health

                right! I think we are just going to our lake house for an extended period of time

                     Not everyone has a lake hpuse lol. While your gone I hope these kids with nothing to do dont break into your home.

                         I don’t think it was a way of showing off or anything. We were just having some fun.

    Well there’s no way in hell he’s keeping me from opening my own pool!

    Hell! My pool has been open since the end of March and no one can make me close it expect for Mother Nature

    Your own personal pool in your backyard is not part of the closure.

    I am sure neighborhood pools may possibly open. We will know for sure in 2 weeks. Ours already has water in it.

    Y'all do realize there are poor working families in West Chester Right? If not you will this summer when these kids start roaming your hood.

    Ohio Board of Health decides for HOA pools

        keeping fingers crossed neighborhood pools can open

    Cincinnati public city pools already announced that when the virus first hit, I guess there will be a run on kiddie pools better buy them up now

        Have you ever been to the city? The poor neighborhoods that have 100s of kids living on top of each other. If they can play in a dirty baby pool why shouldn't they be allowed to swim in a public pool?

        Thete are 23 Rec Centers in the city. Cincy Public has 35,000 students. 80% live in poverty. This is not good.

            makes for a long sad summer

            I read online that 38% live in poverty.

    He is coming out with his plan on Monday. He said that today???? If sweaty gyms are possibly opening so should pools.

    I was proactive this year and bought all the kids new swimsuits and swim shoes back in Feb. The one year I buy early and pools can’t open

    HOA pools should be open. We pay for that privilege.

    DeWine did not make this announcement today. Please cite where you are getting this info.

    Yeah, that was never said during his press conference. Please don’t put out false information! Do your research before you decide to post anything on a community page on social media.

Fly Fisherman Spotted!!!

As I was on my evening walk through the beautiful Lincoln park yesterday, I stumbled upon a fella who was in the grass fly fishing. This is UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR!!! We are in a state wide quarantine the last thing anybody should be doing is fly fishing on grass. Did he think he was going to catch a fish?? Please everybody let’s stay indoors! I have already reported this guy to XPD.

I just heard one of you dump an entire garbage bag  full of "dead soldiers" into the trash and, this being Saturday, I'm betting I can expect the same from you tonight. I'm partyin' with a mask on, and here's what you can expect: I have a Fender Twin reverb amp pointed at your deck. It features 85 watts, dual 12” Jensen speakers, and tilt-back legs for fine-tuning my aim. At my fingertips is an entire collection of Appalachian mountain music, including recordings of Roscoe Holcomb, Fiddlin' John Carson, Alma Gluck, and Eck Robertson. Wanna hear eight solid hours of "Arkansas Traveler"? CAN DO. Wanna enjoy Henry Whitter's version of "The Wreck on the Southern Old 97" ricochet off the concrete lagoon walls back onto your deck for the duration of your little get-together? NO PROB.
BRING IT.

background, some folks in the bay area howl at a certain time instead of like the clapping for nurse thing and it's spread to my town. https://www.marinij.com/2020/03/27/mill-valleys-new-pandemic-protocol-howling-in-place/

My sis told me about the howling and I just assumed it was a weird Boulder thing.  Maybe its a weird people everywhere thing?

I think it started in the bay area, Mill Valley perhaps, and caught on elsewhere.

Just need to vent about my trip to Wal-Mart this morning...... I saw a lot of people wearing masks and that's fine for me I don't wear one so when I was walking in there was a person greeting didn't say a word about a mask so I was doing my shopping and this person told me I needed to wear a mask I said I can't wear one and went on my way doing what I needed to do I feel like that person didn't have the rite to say that to me it's not ordered to wear one and I saw a lot of delivery people not wearing one so the more I thought about it the madder I got so I just wanted to vent thanks for lisening

You go girl I don’t wear one either. I can’t go to menards now even though I need to because it’s Corp. mandatory there

If you put on a simple 5.00 mask you can. It’s the civil thing to do.

You go!! Me, my cousin, my boyfriend, and my brother went into menards the other day. We carried face makes, but didn’t put them on until a lady came up to us and asked us to.. then we just put them around our necks (not covering anything) and weren’t bothered again. It is so very sad how simple freedoms, like the choice of wearing a mask or not in a public place, are being taken from us. Virus or not, freedom should never be stifled.

yes, we are all adults and we are SUPPOSED to be able to move around freely.  A virus does NOT suspend the constitution of the United States.

Please just wear a face mask if it is deemed mandatory by local authorities or by various stores. It causes no harm to anyone to comply with this order, and trust me, some of us will probably look better 😂.  Leave the arrested conspiracy doctors to Facebook, this is a place to talk about people trying to steal my dog food containers and help Brian through a midlife crisis.

I will put one on only if it is required. I am going to be healthier by NOT wearing one. Staying safe lowers my immune system. You build up immunities by being exposed as everyone has done all of their lives. When restrictions are lifted people will get sick because they have not been using their immune system. I would say it is obvious you did not watch the video I referred to. I only responded to the post because it mentioned wearing masks. I wanted to give my opinion.

If you can’t wear one I would recommend ordering your groceries in advance and having them brought out to your car for your own safety and others in the store.

Richard please don’t go during the senior hours, I am in there with a compromised immune system. I could never survive the virus.

I don't trust anyone going around the store getting my groceries any more done it before and when I unpacked them there were bad items in the bags I called the store to complain I was told there was nothing they could do and it was a manager that I talked to so trusting employees in the store to me is bad cause they don't take the time to make sure the items are good and they are in a hurry so from now on I'll do my own shopping

There is a lady on my feed that has hand sewn like 300 masks for people already.  She ordered more supplies that should be here on Friday(From what she said) and last check she already has 150+ orders to do when the shipment of supplies comes in. She is doing it for free but asking for donations that go to the front line workers. Pretty cool.

SnapChat deleted my daughter’s account and sent an email saying she violated the terms of their user agreement. She doesn’t know what she did. Last thing she posted was a gif of a cat. Don’t know if there was a copyright violation. I looked at her source of this post, but it just had a nonprofit address. Everything looked innocent enough. The SnapChat email only sends the link to the user agreement but no indication of what the violation was. There’s no contact information or customer service link to find out more. How do we know she wasn’t hacked with a fraudulent message? I’m really annoyed with them. I want to complain to the Better Business Bureau because there appears to be no recourse. The account deletion seemed so arbitrary.

In our neighborhood there's a lot of animosity toward renters from the homeowners.  Typically on Saturday night after all the Karens have too many glasses of wine, one of them will start a passive aggressive post about their neighbors that are "renters" and it devolves into people proclaiming they wish they'd never bought a house here or that all the Karens are why they would never buy in the neighborhood.  It's good times.

one time my landlord (and next door neighbor) forwarded us an email railing against a potential city law allowing larger mother-in-law units. A big argument against the larger units was not enough parking, another was it would bring in more renters who will negatively change the character of the neighborhood.

Everyone back home tells me it’s “backwards” and I don’t see it that way but I’m just wondering, how Conservative is it really here, because it looks like a normal American city to me. Also, how are the Salt Lake City Police like?In California, our local PD was kind of crooked but I’m just wondering about SLC.

Thanks,

Title: Can we stop complaining about lawns just now?

Quote
I spent time in a hospital two weeks ago (not related to COVID 19). The very day I was released from the hospital, I was on my way to pick up my prescriptions when a neighbor flagged me down to ask if my teenaged son could please mow our lawn. My teenaged son is considered an essential employee at his job, and he's also navigating online learning with a parent who's experiencing health issues. We'll get to the mowing when we can. He has work and school, and I have health to consider. Every single blade of grass was well under the maximum height the city would cite us for, but I do admit it was not a pretty lawn. We have a pandemic going on. Unsightly grass is really not an issue right now.

car selling puppies
I was just walking near loose park and a small sedan pulled up to me, a young boy in the back seat asked if I wanted to buy a puppy and a woman in the driver seat held up a very small puppy. It was incredibly bizarre. I don’t know if this was a ploy or what but seemed very off.

If anyone has this experience, I would make note of the license plate and report to the police. At the very least for the puppies sake!

I don’t know if I’m angry or want to cry right now. Both! 😡🤬😢
I am a lifelong resident of the Bay Area and have chosen for the last 8yrs very deliberately to raise my bi-racial kids in town because of the diversity, families and schools that make up our wonderful island. I have always felt SAFE in my bubble and have been extremely grateful that this is where my family calls home during the stay-at-home shelter-in-place orders.
We live walking distance to *bike* trail. For the last two months our family has gotten through this by walking and biking on the trail 2-3 times a day. My kids are 5, 7, & 12.  If you do the trail you’ve definitely seen us out there.
Today while walking on the walking side of the trail this man on the bike path wearing a MAGA (Make America Great Again) hat engaged my family.  My husband verbally made reference to the hat drawing my attention to the man.  The man noticed us looking at him and told us he was a professor? and he wears the hat to start conversations and teach people. Both my husband and I said “ok” while continuing to walk with our children.  The man continued to tell us why he was wearing the hat to teach people. My husband said “well we don’t need you to teach us. Please just move on.” 
The man proceeded to call my husband a bigot over and over. I reminded him my children were present and asked him to please stop and leave us alone. My husband asked him to get away from us repeatedly. He continued to call my husband a bigot and tell us how our children would learn about bigotry on the internet. HE PROCEEDED TO YELLING OUT AND SPELLING BIGOT FOR MY CHILDREN SEVERAL TIMES & TELLING THEM TO LOOK IT UP WHEN THEY GOT HOME. While also screaming “Your Dad is a bigot!” 
By now my husband is telling this man repeatedly to get out of here and get away from our family.
While I repeatedly continued to yell “stop, stop, my kids are here. We will teach them about bigots not you. LEAVE US ALONE.”
I took a couple of pictures on my phone of him and he rode off on his bike.
I was so shaken that I called the PD non-emergency line. I had to catch my breath I was so upset. The main and most immediate thing the dispatcher said to me was “Well Mam, that’s not illegal. That’s not a crime.” 
I felt gut-punched by her words. Bubble completely bursted. My rational mind was processing what she said, of course I knew it wasn’t illegal. I told her I just thought they’d want to know that there was someone in Alameda wearing a MAGA hat and persistently yelling about bigotry to minors. She told me she’d have an officer contact me.
Then I finished the rest of the walk with my two boys while my husband took my daughter back and we talked about the word bigot. One of my sons asked me about what the hat meant. The older one said he knew it was a Trump hat and wondered why anybody in townwould want to wear one.  So we talked about that too.

Our neighbor has installed a motion detecting light on the side of her ADU that ONLY points into our yard. It is less than 3 feet from our fence. In December she was told to take it down by the Building and Permit Department because it violated code. It’s back up. No one is responding. What is my recourse? We have an established feral cat community in the neighborhood so it will go off all night long directly into our children’s bedroom.

I’d just make a giant sign, attached to the fence (on your side of course) that says “eff your motion lights” added bonus, if the sign is big enough it will block the light from your kids room.
(Pure snark here, I mean, I’d do that, though I know others may find it rude)


lots of folks suggesting something like this:
Quote
Looked to see if Reddit/r/legal advice had anything. Came across this clever technique on one forum
“ had a neighbor that did the same thing. Their "security" light felt like it was a minisun. I tried playing nice, no go. So I bought some 16 foot poles, some thin boards to go between them, and some reflective plastic roll. I set it up where it was in my yard a couple feet off the fence but set up in such a way that it almost completely reflects the light back to their house.
Worked great. He bitched at me, I ignored him. He moved his light. I moved my reflector. He finally pointed the damned thing down at his own yard.

just experienced a very disturbing situation.
A neighbor has been putting out their “free” items for about three weeks now. Not a problem, but it created one this morning. A woman was driving by in her black BMW and stopped, reversed, and started sifting  through the box of junk. As she finishes doing this, my granddaughter’s friend is crossing the road with our takeout. The woman, white, in her 40s, with dark hair, yelled at the friend “THROW ME YOUR KEYS N-WORD”. Now, he’s not African American, but our neighbors are. She also made a gun gesture at him. She also had a red baseball cap in her car.

Dear citizens, can you please NOT use your shoe soles for pressing pedestrian lights to cross the street? Use your elbows, paper napkins, anything not so dirty as your shoe sole. There are people who still use their fingertips to press them and you are potentially exposing them not just to coronavirus, but also to all kinds of germs you find on the street. Thank you!

Title: Kids throwing rocks

Quote
Hi All.

Sharing this video with you of these two boys who seem to be throwing rocks across the street at one another. The rock that hit my front door was pretty large, after noticing the video I went and snagged it. I could only imagine if it hit that boy in the face, yikes. I’m obviously concerned about the safety of the two as well as the windows on my home and cars nearby. I know kids can be bored during this time but there are better things to do than walk on opposite sides of the street and throw rocks at one another.

Ah, yeah! Good ol' fashioned rock fight!

I just encountered this “gentleman”, stealing plants from our property at *APARTMENT COMPLEX*.  He says his name is Gauge Strongarm and he is exceptionally rude and entitled.  When confronted, he admitted that he was looking for baby succulents for propagation and that he didn’t care that we objected - we would have happily let him pick if he had approached us appropriately. 
Quite a lesson in how to approach others to get what one wants in life.

also posted a pic of the dude caught in the act and a shirtless photo of him(?) and then a debate raged on about clipping succulents

Quote
Where did you get that second shirtless photo of him? Did he give it to you? How odd.

Quote
I was in our parking lot and he was walking through our property on the *public trail*. I saw him crawling around in the plants and asked him if he had lost something and he told me what he was doing and did so with an insolent tone. I responded that it was private property and that he should have asked permission. Had he been lovely and approached with kindness, he could have taken whatever he wanted.
He offered his “name” and his phone number so I could call the police.
I have never met him before. He is a tattoo artist in San Francisco.

Quote
This is an excellent example of privilege on your part. You not only disrespected someone’s right to privacy by putting their face online, your also exposing them to potential harassment. All because someone took a flower from you! If you’re trying to make an example out of him you are doing the exact opposite and I think you are the one with the problem.



great little side convo!

Quote from: wow he's trans guy
Interestingly according to this article he is female to male transgender.

(^^^big no-no in libland)

he is very open about that. However, I’m having trouble seeing why this was worth mentioning.

not worth mentioning, you’re an bad person.

You don't know anything about me. I have two friends who are trans women.

I'm not ready to go to phase 2 reopening. I'm not going to eat/drink at any bars or restaurants. I hope curbside and pick up options continue. I'm no big baller, but when I can, I'll pick up from local places. I want everyone to succeed but I don't feel we are ready based on history.
I'm writing this in the hopes that others post what they are willing or not willing to do so local businesses know what local Peeps think

CanCo.  I mean, I'll try to have a beer on a patio on a nice day, but I'd guess my actual going out to a bar or restaurant is going to be cut by 80% through the rest of the year.  I might feel differently in a couple months, but I dunno.

aggressive crow who is harassing me. I live fairly close to his nest. Any suggestions on how to handle an aggressive crow who uses my property to get to his nest which is in a large tree adjacent to my property.  This bird swooped down and grazed my hair several days ago.  Clearly the crow is agitated and has chased the squirrel who uses my fence and others to traverse along the properties.

Crows love unsalted peanuts in their shells. Make friends. She knows you and won’t ever forget you

Make friends not war? Killing it is not easy. Can’t shoot shotgun in city limits. Feeding it peanuts might help. I would consider a tennis racket - whack - but not hard enough to kill. It might think twice.
Quote
crows are amazingly smart and if you agitate it they will tell all their friends and then things will be worse (they have done experiments to show they have long memories) I suggest making friends and leaving peanuts for it. then they will know that if you don't start things with them, they will be just fine and know you are not a threat
Quote
The crows are very stressed because several large pine trees were cut down in Brittany Landing. They probably list their nests and tree houses. They have been flying around erratically and are very upset.  It appears that they took over the nests of other, smaller birds. So, now all the birds are upset and stressed.
Quote
Simply say “hi” in a nice voice. Leave a crust or two, and you’ll have a lifelong friend.  Crows are highly intelligent.
Quote
Leave the crow alone.  They are  level to the spirit world and our physical world.  They are the smartest bird.  Your best bet is to be their friend and feed them if possible. Or suffer the crow karma.  Have a nice day
Quote
You are in the crows territory not yours, you have it all wrong. Animal totems of the crow would be very interesting for you to look up in native American books. I would talk to the crow sing to the crow calm it down to let it know you’re not gonna to go after its babies, respect it feed it and be his friend. If you treat nature like wrongfully you will get a reverberation later on for sure and it could be a lot worse than a crow divebombing you.. Mother nature is queen

They cover about 50k people, I get city discussions outside of my specific neighborhood. But you'd probably get the same  perspectives within about a mile radius of my place. There's a combination of old conservatives that have been here forever, hippies and spiritual types, rich immigrants, and young tech worker families.

Animals running at night!
We have had several different animals running around our neighborhood @ night since this pandemic started. A Fox, Groundhogs, What looks like a Possible Pig/Boor?
The later of them has been digging under the shed next door and scaring the people living there!! It snorts and growls @ them at night! We've tried live traps and it just eats the food and runs away.

I don't live in a part of the US that has wild boar so perhaps someone lets their pot bellied pig out at night.

So apparently here in Xville, in direct violation of the county shelter-in-place order, the police are allowing people to throw giant parties in their carports with no masks, no social distancing of any kind, with a huge group of people.

Apparently all that's required to get the call cleared is to lie and claim that your guests are just residents of the complex (even though there is nothing in the order that exempts residents from the rule)

So if anyone here in Xville wants to throw a giant party in their apartment building's carport and invite all your family from out of town to throw a giant celebration with no regard for other people's health or safety, all you have to do is claim that your guests are residents and that magically makes it OK according to our wonderful city police department!

Thanks again XPD! Same officer that's always allowed them to get away with it before. Of course there's no bias problems here sending the same officer out year after year, who in all likelihood has some kind of under-the-table arrangement with these folks.

After he left they spent the next 7 hours blasting mariachi music in retaliation for the harmless visit.

Thanks again XPD.

Also bonus points for having their kids throw basketballs at our building's walls over and over again for several hours as well and spitting loogies into our driveway

I tell ya, there's nothing quite like having a gathering of around a dozen tattooed gang members with their pants around their ankles and their family menacing outside your windows for 7 hours straight, blowing smoke into your home, spitting into your driveway and having their kids throw stuff at your walls while screaming and blasting mariachi music.

It's almost as nice as paying an arm and a leg in rent and taxes to live in a city government that couldn't care less about you or enforcing even the most rudimentary of laws, let alone ones that are designated to protect public health from an ongoing pandemic. Great look for the town! Good thing the local news don't write about this stuff

Does anyone around here spin yarn??? Well here is a SIP project!

I've got two miniature sheep that I am going to sheer pretty soon (hopefully... if I can figure out the fancy clippers!) I am rubbish at spinning, but I could probably sort out washing and carding the wool well enough.

Anyone out there spin wool and interested in helping me out? Perhaps as a barter for some of the wool, or I also have plenty of farm fresh honey and eggs as well.

Your friendly neighborhood farmer,
Kendal

P.S. Some photos of the lil cuties attached. Their names are Coco and Marshmallow - brown and white Southdown Babydoll Sheep, they are just about one and a half years old, both ewes. They are each about the size of a golden retriever.

Just a not so friendly reminder that if you would like to have sex in BROAD DAYLIGHT in your car (today it was a black Jeep...we have photos and videos and the cops have them too) in a neighborhood full of kids and next to peoples’ houses (& windows), you better be prepared for the consequences. If you are thinking about heading over to “The T” for some action, just know that you are not invisible & that our cameras are not your friend. We suggest you get a hotel next time you want to creep around!

Yesterday evening around 7pm, my teenage daughter took her two younger siblings to the pool near the tennis courts. There was a young adult couple present, and they were drinking and making out. The young woman's breast was exposed, and their kissing quickly devolved into further lewd behavior. My teenage daughter bravely approached them. She told them they were behaving inappropriately with little children around. They laughed at her, mocked her, and told her to get lost. My daughter took our two youngest children and left the pool. When my husband and I arrived shortly thereafter, the young couple and their friend left the pool. There were multiple children present for the offensive act. There were also several other adults present that did NOT say anything to the young couple, which is shameful.

We contacted the ******* Sheriff's Office, and they said the act was considered Lewd and Lascivious behavior. Committing this type of act in front of children under the age of 16 is a FELONY. Furthermore, exposing your private parts in front of children is a felony that will result in your name being added to the sex offenders registry. The ******* Sheriff said in the future to call the police immediately, and it is acceptable to call the emergency 911 number to report such behavior. We also contacted the HOA and gave them the couple's Kansas license plate number *** ***.

Parents - please know that this behavior is not at all acceptable and you or your children should report such behavior immediately. I hope these kind of people are not allowed into our community pool in the future.

Does anyone here care to defend or explain why people think it is ok to exercise outdoors unmasked (mostly jogging and biking) near other people? 
And not expect to be tripped or kicked or confronted? <- hyperbole. See below.
I just went for a daily walk along Harbor Bay and had to ask, suggest, explain to about ten different people there was a pandemic and they should please wear a face covering and/or stay the F away from other people. Some even sitting on a bench right on the walking path, talking with no face coverings. Why is this so hard to show basic, common decency for your neighbors?
EDIT: the tripping and kicking bit was hyperbole meant to emphasize my frustration. I see now that it was not necessary. I would never touch anyone like that.

We have one that scurries along the fence. He came down to attempt to eat some kibble. When his eyes met mine, he simply rolled on his side and Played Dead. I laughed my head off. Never did i think I would experience this! Too funny! Then he got up & scurried away.

Second mom fires off that the judge ruled the ban unconstitutional.

Hmm. Lemme read that ruling... Something tells me your fake prom isn't constitutionally protected speech, sunshine.

Wear a mask people! My husband and I just came back from a bike ride on the ... bike path and I just can’t get over the fact that about 50% of the riders (not including children of course) were not wearing a mask.  What is it going to take? A $300 fine or a death in your family? 2 men came up from behind us at the stop light, no masks , one was coughing and laughing! They had 4 children with them.  Great examples for the kids, ignoramus!

they got overwhelming support plus someone posted this (it gets posted in every mask discussion)

I joined NextDoor because of this thread and my neighborhood is boring as crap.

My city doesn't have a Facebook group and my neighborhood doesn't have a nextdoor, which is actually comforting to me. The when I lived rurally that city had two Facebook groups, a normal one and an uncensored one, and they were both wild a.f.

Our neighborhood as a FB group for just general stuff and is highly moderated,  one for off-color jokes and mocking other neighbors, one for the neighborhood moms, a poker group, a bible study and buy/sell/garage sale one.

Oh yes. Also backlash posts from other dog owners about how fireworks don't bother their dog and hope everyone had fun.

Everything not fireworks related is "wear a rough ridin' mask!!!!!" evangelizers (these people really annoy me).

I joined nextdoor after seeing this thread months ago for entertainment purposes and got nothing until today, Oh boy.  This Mom is pissed because her daughter and two friends walked 4 blocks to the next subdivision and jumped to fence to hang out at the HOA pool that none of them belong to.  A dude calls the cops and the girls are sent packing humiliated, terrified and crying.  MirMom doesn't want to bring it up but can't help but wonder if the girls were white would the cops have been called?  It turned into a robust thread, but nextdoor deleted it pretty quick, nothing racist just people explaining to this woman how ridiculous she is. 

* I call her MirMom because she accuses people of being racist for doing normal non racist things.

lots of private tutoring talk since school is going online.

Quote
With all of the talk of tutoring going on, I'd like  to raise my hand as an alternative to your child going to school and  catching Covid. Here is what I have to offer:
- Will take your child on 3+ mile runs daily, making sure they are exhausted by the end of the day.
 - I'm not good at math but can teach rudimentary programming and concepts.
 - Will teach your child to fight and also fire a gun with appropriate waivers and insurance.
 - I can also make sure your child WONT touch firearms. We're very flexible. (May cost extra.)
 - I read real good and will also teach your child history mainly written by Howard Zinn.
 - Meditation and mindfulness classes.
 - Guitar lessons.
 - German lessons. Alternative your child can teach me Spanish or a  language they know. This will prove to be great didactic training for  them.
 - Courses in horticulture will make sure your child will learn metric.
 - Weekly excursions to BLM protests will instill a sense of communal  identity and will teach your children to challenge INSTITUTIONAL  authority, but not your authority. (For a small extra fee I will teach  your children to challenge your authority.)
 - I have zero  obligations in life therefore not only will your child be my number one  priority, but I'm therefore probably a better parent than you.
 - Capacity to actually love your child.
 - No, not like that.
In terms of inquires, I don't wanna put a pricetag on the love that you  have for your child. But I'm gonna operate on a sliding scale here and  in 5 years when your child is playing guitar, speaking German, and has a  software internship... I'd like to ask you what you think that's worth  to you.
Thanks!

When I lived in Hays, I had a Doberman Pinscher that loved to play.  I had kids come over to play with my dog in the backyard.  The kids loved playing with him.  Problem was he would scratch them with his paws from jumping on them.  They never complained, but some Karens would come over and raise hell about their kids getting hurt.  So I only let the kids that their parents didn't get upset about the rough playing in the backyard.  The kids with Karens were out of luck with play time.  I felt bad about it as some begged and even cried.  Yes, some parents are overbearing jerks.

While these traps do a number on whatever poor creature stumbles into it, free-roaming domesticated cats are basically invasive super predators that do considerable ecological harm to native wildlife. Please consider!

Animals doing what is inherent to their nature do not deserve to be treated cruelly.

hmmm.. there are a lot of things wrong with letting a non-native species destroy a native species. Was it simply human nature for Columbus and our government to destroy native American populations? The “humans are the virus” ideology forgets that ~10% of the human population contributes to 90% of global emissions, deforestation, and mass extinction of native species. Capitalists and colonizers are the virus of the earth. Native species are the true stewards of native life and should be protected from the colonialist outdoor cats. Is it natural that domesticated cats kill billions of birds per year in Australia? https://phys.org/news/2019-07-cats-billion-native-australian-animals.html

Do better, mods.
There's been trouble in town lately.  People want to learn what has happened and also talk about it.  A shooting in a park, then a massive and frightening shoot out on one of the city's most active corners  --  those are things people want to and ought to discuss.
But mods are going NUTS with time outs, bans, etc of ANY post that doesn't fit their idea of proper, even when the comment is not harsh or out of line in any way. 
It's baldly political.   We can't worry about violent crime because the PC mods don't want to hear it.  People with legit worries who express politely are shut off, while those who rudely shout them down are not.  How dare anyone worry about crime, that's racist!
I saw a polite question about why the Main Streets were redone, and the post was shut down.  How dare anyone question the council members that the mods vote for?
This is not directly a free speech or 1st Amendment issue.  That refers to government interference with speech.  Mods do not have to follow the letter of the 1st amendment, but they would be respected if they followed the SPIRIT of free speech for all, including people who prefer to not have shootings on the street or prefer different politicans than the Mods 
What do they fear?  That their ideas cannot thrive if examined or questioned?  Sure looks like it.
 
This could be an interesting place to discuss things if it were free and ALL viewpoints respected.  Instead it's the Ministry of Information for a political agenda. 
Do better, Mods.
PS  Posted at 2:04 PM.  I wonder how long before this is shut down or I am banned.
as of 3:22 it had been taken down :lol:

Well, this has been grinding on me for a while (years) and it came to a head today. Lets just say I knew this wasn't going to go well.

Next door neighbor has been cutting further and further onto my property for years. As much as 3 passes or close to 15 feet. Now on most lots it is difficult to know exactly where the line is, but in this case there is a pipe driven in at both ends which clearly shows the lot line. (If you can drive your mower straight) This AM she started cutting, no shaving again. First pass was 100% on my property. 2nd pass one more time up my lot. So I decided I am done. I grabbed one of my K9's and headed out for a walk. When she came to the back corner, she saw I wanted to speak with her and shut off the Cub tractor. I asked her why she keeps cutting so far onto my property? She sais, so you don't have to brush against that pine tree in the front. I say, you mean your pine tree that is growing 10 feet across the property line? She sais snarkishly yah, I'm helping you out! I say, you can help me out by cutting your tree back to the property line, like I did when my pine trees crossed the line. And, you need to stop cutting my property. She sais your a dumb a$$. I was instantly torked off and said, no your the dumb a$$ and you need to stay on your own property!

These people moved in about 5 or 6 years ago. The first 2 month's they lived here, I waived every day on my way home from work. They would just look at me like deer in the headlights. Never waived back once. After 2 month's of that I said forget it. Since then, I have spoken to the Mrs. maybe 5 times and he hasn't said 2 words to me. That's fine by me because I am sure now they are morons.

My only question is, do I contact the County Sheriffs Dept and file a report? If he doesn't cut his pine tree back, I will be taking care of it now myself. I can see where this could escalate and I was thinking that having the report on record could circumvent problems for myself down the road? Thoughts?

That one confused me too.  Of course, as an owner of the second cheapest Cub mower, it only stands to reason that I am unfamiliar with the finer nuances of yard barbering.

Really hate to ask this and because I’m in a mood. But I’ve been going through some stuff and I just want to burn some of my possessions from this person and my parents won’t allow me to do so.
Anywhere I could possibly burn like t-shirts, photos, etc. safely? Preferably in town, but can go up to Marin.
I know, there are other ways to release stress and anger, but I like the symbolism.

Uhhhhhh someone please tell that guy not to go to Marin or anywhere outside of the city to burn things

Ocean Beach though is usually my first choice on this since I can use both water and sand to help with extinguishing (although sea water is recommended).
I am sure I will find a safe place to do it. And also definitely away from crowds due to COVID!

Hey folks, just had a small, black Nissan leaf stop in front of our neighbor's house and take pictures. They have construction going on and a big (locked/chained) toolbox in their front yard. Guy in the car actually backed up to take pictures. I went out and yelled and asked him what he was doing as he drove away and he saw me, but kept driving. Totally casing the place, or, a very, very weird interest in offbeat photography.

Well, I set my couch on the sidewalk last night in preparation for a donation service to come get it today. But sometime after 10:30, someone decided it needed to be set on fire. It destroyed the ivy, and melted the port-a-john the construction crews set out.
If it had been five feet over, it would’ve caught the pine tree and probably the neighbor’s house & our yard/house.
A nice lady from a couple blocks over was walking by and says a similar thing was set on fire on her sidewalk a couple weeks ago.
So. Be careful when you set out stuff. Someone or some folks seem to think setting fire to things during a drought when the region on fire is a fine thing to do.

Do you know where your TSLs are? There's a pretty big party going on at [THE PARK] right now... and, ya know, global pandemic and all...

today I learned TSL = Teenage crap Lord

and someone got big mad over it (all from the same guy)

Quote
Nice language. Tsl? Really? Wow. You should be ashamed of yourself
Quote
according to the group it is "teenage crap lord" It is rude, offensive and unnecessary. It is derogatory. Where is the compassion? They are kids. Minors. I guess everyone here was a good two shoes all their life and never did anything that adults didn't like
Quote
they are KIDS. Minors. Calling them names in a thread does whaT?

one of the responses:

Omg im dying laughing over here. As if there aren't more important things to get angry over right now, we've got our very own pearl clutcher whining about calling a couple of teenagers who are acting terribly bad names. No wonder we are in the mess we're in.

Animals running at night!
We have had several different animals running around our neighborhood @ night since this pandemic started. A Fox, Groundhogs, What looks like a Possible Pig/Boor?
The later of them has been digging under the shed next door and scaring the people living there!! It snorts and growls @ them at night! We've tried live traps and it just eats the food and runs away.

I don't live in a part of the US that has wild boar so perhaps someone lets their pot bellied pig out at night.

30-50 feral hogs are on the loose again  :runaway:

I’ll give you a little insight in why I am a little annoyed with the comment. I cannot go physically check because I’m stuck in the hospital with my pregnant wife who by the way has been here for a week with me sleeping on the side couch with another week to go before our premature baby is induced 2 months early . So I wanted to go get something that made my wife feel better and possibly something cuddly for my preme baby

Why have the comments been turned off for the earlier post about the pro-law enforcement rally being planned in town? If the post was approved, is there a reason why comments disabled? As far as I'm concerned, folks might as well plan to burn a cross or hold a KKK rally. This is not the time to hold a pro-police rally. This is cloaked racism and people who cannot get behind BLM but they want to have a support the police rally. REALLY?

I can’t find it now to screenshot, but on a local Facebook buy/sell/trade someone was selling a burial plot.  They stated the single plot is available because “my sister was unable to use it” and I’ve never been more curious about what happened to a stranger. How is a dead person unable to use a burial plot? Did they die overseas? Did they have to get cremated for some reason? Did they disappear? I want to know what happened but never will.

I see those all the time and rarely actually see kids in the street but usually it's like kids playing catch or basketball in a driveway or some are pretty much up all the time just as a heads up to get people to slow down. it seems a little entitled but who cares even if the kids are in the street, go slow

They are fine, drivers (including me) can be selfish assholes hurrying around in a huge moving object that can easily kill people if we aren’t reminded of what we are doing. It does not hurt to slow down to 15 mph when you see one of those for a few seconds.  My kids bike in the road in front of my house in a very low traffic neighborhood and although the risk/reward is very asymmetrical I allow it but I wouldn’t if everyone drove like assholes instead of just the very occasional person.

If I'm driving the legally posted limit of 25, I don't need Karen telling me slow down because she can't be bothered to watch her children and make sure they're not playing in the street when cars are coming.

I don't need to slow down because I'm not exceeding the posted limit. I also don't need her sign in the road because speed limit signs are already posted throughout the neighborhood.  I have no problem with the police monitoring her street for speeders.  Our local police have plenty of time to make sure nobody commits a rolling stop at any of the twelve dozen stop signs in our neighborhood they can surely use part of that time to catch speeders so Karen can go back to not watching her children.

Amber dear, go with your gut feelings! I'm not okay with Oijia boards either. They are not just creepy, Don't let all of these "well wishers" make fun of you! If you want to know what the real background of Oijia boards, Tarot cards, and all of this spiritism crap is NOT healthy for kids or adults. Google it or look on Wikipedia has lots of info. Also, These palm readers who say they can talk to peoples dead relatives and do seances are cons. It is amazing to me how many people go to these people today.

You have to draw a line somewhere

For the feralcat feeders in this group:
A neighbor left me a bag of Meow Mix on my doorstep last night to help me feed the ferals around. I think a raccoon or other cats got to it overnight - now the bag is slashed but probably a good 85% of food left.
I have no need of it (now inside a Target bag) because “my” ferals seem to have found a tastier “kitchen” nearby - would anybody like it for their ferals? Let me know.

Whoever is feeding the feral cats behind Jim’s coffee shop PLEASE STOP. The cats are reproducing at a crazy rate and have taken over the entire neighborhood. The people feeding them should also pick up all their poop

I just want to take a moment to address the letter that our pretty awesome neighbors (eye roll) took the time to write up and send to us. Since there was no returning address, I don’t know another way to address this than to send it out to our community. And since all the people that “live within 10 houses in every direction” are bothered, maybe this is the way to reach the most people. I have attached the letter to this post for your reference so that all houses that were included in this complaint know what was said on their behalf.
I want you to understand that we are reasonable people. If you have an issue with us our any part of our family (dog included), it could have been addressed in a much better way. If you wanted to remain anonymous fine. But, the letter and the way that it was written was completely inappropriate and was written in a very not neighborly way.
We understand that when the dog barks at “all hours of the night” that would be annoying. It would annoy us too. But the truth is, he’s not barking at all hours of the night because if he was, we would hear it too.
Despite what you presume to know about us we are not up “streaming Netflix until midnight.” We have kids that are in bed on most nights between 8-9 too. We also understand that they “need sleep for their health and well being.” While it is none of your business, you may notice that our lights are on late at night. But instead of presuming to know that we are up “streaming Netflix” maybe if you took the time to get to know your RENTAL neighbors, you would know that I currently have a full time job (teacher in PISD), 3 kids, and I have decided to go to nursing school. So, once my kids are in bed, I stay up late grading papers, planning for the next school day (COVID sucks and we are having to recreate almost everything so that it works for our virtual students as well as our in-person students), but in addition to that, I take classes at night and have to stay up until “all hours of the night” studying, doing my own assignments for nursing school, and getting things ready for the next day (mom stuff). I am definitely not up “streaming Netflix.” And if I was, it’s really not any of your business and was an unnecessary comment.
We also don’t appreciate the cops being called on us and the fact that whoever called them, is a LIAR. Last Saturday night I was up studying in the front office. My husband had taken the kids to a friends house to hang out so that I could have a quiet house you know because of the “noise coming from inside our home from whatever it is that we are doing” (eye roll). Kevin (the dog) was outside. I did hear him bark a few times randomly. It was defiantly not constant (nonstop) barking and when he did bark it was a few barks and then he would stop. He maybe barked a total of 3 times over the course of a couple of hours. He’s a dog, he is going to bark some especially if he hears other dogs in our neighborhood barking or people outside our house. That night, our neighbors had people in front of our house going back in forth to their car after 9 pm. We are not even going to address the fact that those same neighbors often have their guests park right in front of our house so that my husband has to park across the street when there is not a single car in their driveway (talk about annoying). But, OK fine, so any little noise outside bothers you if it comes after 9pm. Maybe it takes you a while to drift to sleep you hear another bark that wakes you up again. You are annoyed, so you call the cops, fine, maybe that was the best way to address the situation at that time of the night. I’m not bothered that the cops were called, or even that you were annoyed by the dog. We all have different things that really bother (trigger) us. I guess a few barks really sets some people off. I am however bothered that those neighbors also told the police that I went outside screamed at Kevin and then proceeded to beat him. Seriously??? Why lie?? Is that what you had to tell the cops to get them to come?? Because the cop sat outside our house for a while and never heard the dog bark until my husband pulled up around 11pm. Kevin barked when he heard the truck a few times and then stopped barking before they even got inside the house. Again, my issue is not that the cops were called because clearly you were annoyed. But, why lie?
We also don’t appreciate you talking down to us or treating us as if you are better just because we are RENTERS. The letter was addressed to our “Rental Neighbors.” Why not just neighbors?? What difference does it make that we rent our home rather than buy it? We also do not appreciate you making comments that we are “streaming Netflix until midnight” and “we may not hear the dog bark because of all the noise in our home.” We don’t appreciate being threatened by our so called neighbors of a legal suit or of an eviction. Never in my entire life have I ever felt so unwelcomed and judged by people that don’t even know us. We pay just as much as you (probably more) to be here. You are no better than us.
Let me reiterate that my issue is not with your complaint about Kevin (the dog). We understand and are sorry that he has caused you any “annoyance.” We are going to do what we can to resolve the issue so that he is no longer a problem. My issue is that instead of the letter that was sent, all that was really needed was a letter like this…
Hi Neighbors,
We just wanted to let you know that your dog has been barking quite a lot and has been keeping us up at night/waking us up early in the morning. Is there any way that you can maybe bring him inside from 9pm-6am so that we can get some rest?
Thanks,
Your Sleepy Neighbors
You should have given us the benefit of the doubt and a chance to resolve the issue before talking down to us, threatening to have us evicted, and threatening to file a law suit. At least, that is what any normal human being would have done. You, my neighbors, that OWN your home, and were a part of this letter are all jerks.

We used to have problems with our neighbor's dogs getting loose and chasing our chickens. My fiance went in our driveway with her 9mm and told next door lady if her dog got loose again she'd shoot the dog and then her fat ass if she didn't like it.

Dogs have not been loose for a good three months.

Ain't no need for Facebook posts. Just handle your crap.

On of my friends dads killed a neighbors dog that kept jumping the fence. Put a couple of 9mm rounds into it in the backyard.  Needless to say that was not viewed favorably by the city.

I once had the city chalk the neighbors tires because they left their car parked in front of our mailbox & the post office stopped my mail. For some reason I gave them a 5th warning about the car & said it’s getting towed in 48 hours instead of just letting it get towed.

Was it parked legally? Seems like a post office problem. And it was nice of you to let them know it was about to be towed.

I had the city sticker my car once when I was on vacation and parked on a side street two houses down that didn't have street sweeping. I moved it but kept parking in the general area because my street was being repaved and my friendly neighbor chalked it himself to show that I hadn't moved very far. I was not in front of a mailbox or anything.

48 hour city ordinance. We got multiple warning letters from the post office that I took to the neighbors before they stopped our mail. I talked to the local post master & he said he could have it towed, but if I wanted my mail back sooner it’d be faster if I called the city for the ordinance violation. The truck was the guy’s son’s. Every time I went to talk to them, they gave me a “what do you want me to do, it’s not my truck” because the son never answered the door.

LOL, that was very nice of you to warn then again.

Still the postal service shouldn't stop mail, that's mind-boggling. What a pain.

Noticed our trash can looked different when I put it away this week after trash day. Looked closer today and realized either the sanitation worker accidentally switched ours with the neighbor's, or the neighbor took mine when he retrieved it sooner than me. Now I am stuck with a smellier trash can with a broken lid.
What should I do? Ms WW says I should switch them back.

Note: i've lived next to the neighbor for a year now and have never said more than "hey how's it going" to him.

Switch them back and sharpie your address on it or just ask the trash company for a new one. We get a free replacement each year. (we have three bins because we are hippies).

Ask for a new one. It sounds like you have the perfect neighbor relationship with them and I wouldn't want to impact it one way or the other.
