I just don’t understand why the race card constantly needs to be pulled. Blows my mind. I wouldn’t say another thing. Let these people stew in their own racist hate.

What a nightmare!

I would stop appologizing. Clearly no one is hearing you!

@BrandNewBride:  +1. I don’t apologize unless I am actually sorry and you didn’t do anything (neither did your DH). Accidents happen and people are just unreasonable sometimes.

Let it go.  Maybe the older couple is experiencing some dementia or the other man policing the parking lot is blowing minor comments out of proportion and then getting angry and confronting your DH.  If you truly feel unwelcome or threatened, then I would consider moving out when your lease expires.

If you are close with them it may be worth while to have them over and just see what is going on. You don’t need to apologize anymore but maybe just ask them the same question about if you did something to offend them or the guy with the kid?  He seems to be the whole centre of this thing.

DH has apologized, that should be it. Yeah I hate when the race card is pulled as well, especially when it has nothing to do with the situation. If the man “policing” the parking lot approaches your DH again, ask for his name and report HIM.

@futuremrsndl:  What on earth?  If your neighbors weren’t there to witness either exchange, and the guy with the toddler is being irrationally angry about things, it sounds like he might be doing a ‘he said, she said’ with you and your neighbors.  I think it’s definitely worthwhile to have them over in order to explain your side of the story and clear the air.

Leave your husband at home and have a heart to heart with the wife next door preferably when the husband/guest aren’t there. Tell her you’re upset about some of the things going on and that you truly value having such wonderful neighbors. Hopefully you and her can clear up any misunderstanding.
