Keeping Up with Kicking Out The Jones'
We have lived in this house for approximately 2 years. Our neighbors are the parents of the previous owners. Should that have raised any flags? Probably, but everything seemed fine at first.
Then it moved on to what I called our "silent fighting." They will park their cars too close to our spots, so at least one of us has to park down the street. It would be understandable if they didn't have a 2 car garage, vacant lot, and the entire stretch of street in front of the vacant lot. It didn't bother me terribly, though.
Now it is not so silent. Not in the "I hate you!" sort of way, but they are doing external renovations. All day, all the time. Now, I'm sure they're not doing this just to make us angry. They are however being extremely inconsiderate. How am I supposed to sleep until 3 p.m. while they've got bulldozers slamming around? Not to mention their chipper start at 5 in the morning last week. I really loved that, I should go tell them how much...
