I think I have mentioned before that one of our neighbor’s isn’t a big fan of ours and the feeling is mutual. We were friendly for the first few years after they moved in and then everything went to pot after a property dispute which almost ended in blows between Lou and “the guy.”
After that day, “the guy” and his wife stopped talking to us. Lou and I have tried to be cordial and say hello if they are directly in our path but they totally ignore us, so we now do the same. It has gotten kinda funny. Lou and I are actually amused at how much we bug them. It takes a lot of effort to ignore someone that lives directly next door so we find it rather humorous.
Saturday we were all in the back playing on the trampoline when Lou noticed they had hung a bamboo shade from their patio between our two houses.
Lou: “Hey, look they hung a curtain out to block us even more.”
Me: “No, it must be to cut down the glare from the sun. I think they put a new TV out there when they remodeled, I heard it on the other day.”
Lou: “No, Tiffani the sun doesn’t come from that way. They are trying to block us out even more.”
We both start belly laughing.
Me: “Don’t you think the tall hedges that reach above the fence are enough of a blocker?”
Lou: “No, they hate us and you can still see a little bit of our backyard.”
Me: “Oh, it is probably because we moved the trampoline closer to the fence while the grass is growing in.”
Lou:” That’s it.”
Me: “Maybe we should leave it here as long as possible just to annoy them more? I seriously love how much we annoy them. It brings me great joy, even though I know it is wrong.”
We then talked about how it makes us both so happy that we bug “the guy” and his wife so much. I don’t think it is very Christian of me but it really cracks me up. “This guy” is loud, boastful and a bully and now has become good friends with our only other “problem” neighbor.
The other good news is the crazy lady across the street used to try and come over and talk to Lou and I all the time about how hard her life was caring for her one son. She would go on and on and could never take a hint when we needed to leave. I would try to help her with some solutions to her problems but her response was always ” Oh, you don’t know how hard it is.” No, she is not a single mother, she has a husband. I would just shake my head, agree and try to break free from the conversation.
She recently made friends with “the guy”and now they are always outside talking and flirting. It is really pretty crazy as she is always wearing a rather revealing shirt and she laughs at everything he says while he stands there with his hands on his hips and his chest puffed out. Apparently he must of told her he doesn’t like us because now she ignores us too. THANK YOU GOD!
It is funny how hard people try to be angry and bitter when it is so much easier to be nice and polite. Oh well. On the note of being angry and rude here are a few more photos of Tiara in her recent mood. She is trying to escape from the side of the house and she is really mad I caught her. She was going to find her Dad but he was at work in Ontario.
Have a great day.
