ARGH! I’m SO, SO, SO angry and I really need to vent!!!
My fiance and I live in a duplex close to a college and my neighbors (the ones that share a wall with us) are exchange students from Japan. (DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT ATTEMPTING TO START ANY DISCRIMINATORY REMARKS AGAINST PEOPLE OF JAPANESE DECENT NOR DO I THINK BADLY OF THAT RACE.) Needless to say, they barely speak English and we can barely understand them.
In October 2008, I bought myself a BRAND NEW Hyundai Sonata and in April of this year, we moved into our rented duplex. Since then, we have had nothing but problems with our neighbors. They have had super loud and overflowing parties that last until 4am and shake the walls. They are extremely messy and never pick up after such parties. Our town is in a valley and we have strong, constant gusts of wind ALL THE TIME. They’re trash goes everywhere!
Backup to the middle of May at 1:00am Saturday morning, they are having a HUGE party and there are so many cars parked around and next to my fiance and my cars. Even after calling the non-emergency police for noise complaint (in this town, its a serious fine if there is audible noise 50ft from anywhere, anyplace after 10pm) twice, the party didn’t end until 5am! I work the opening shifts every weekday morning and when I left for work at 6:30, one of the people at the party had parked so close to the back of my car that they POPPED MY TRUNK OPEN, peeled paint with the screws of their plate and scratched my bumper all up. I called the police, filed a hit and run claim and ran off to work–late. We talked to our neighbors and we thought that they understood an agreement to not have ANYONE park behind our cars and only they could park next to our cars.
NOW TONIGHT: the fiance is taking our dog out to pee at 10pm and sees our neighbors car drive up onto the grass, back up towards my car into an empty spot next to my car. The car was driven by our neighbors friend who lost his keys to his car that happened to be parked behind where our neighbors car was supposed to go. Anyway, the neighbor was in the passengar side directing instead of driving (AND BOTH PEOPLE ARE DRUNK!). When the neighbor got out of the car, the passengar door slammed into mine TWICE. When he opened the passengar rear door, it slammed into my driver’s rear door TWICE. There is blue paint on his car and FOUR dings in mine. Both guys are claiming innocence and the police said there was nothing they could do because it’s a civil matter and there is also no evidence of the guy drinking before he drove (although he REEKS of beer and we called the cops within 10 minutes of this happening!)
The fiance was yelling at them so loud, that he woke up the landlord and surrounding neighbors. They will get a citation from the landlord in the morning for driving on the grass and I have called my insurance claims company and scheduled a meeting for the inspector to come and for me to get an estimate on the damage. We’ve exchanged insurance info, blah, blah, blah.
I’m so angry because this is the SECOND time by these people and they just DON’T GET IT! The police man couldn’t even get through to them what was going on and the seriousness of it. I feel like I’ve done all that I can but that it’s not even close to being what it needs to be. I’m so frustrated and angry and irritated. I have NEVER been so upset. My stomach is curling with anger!
THanks for letting me vent. I really, really needed to do that. When the FI and I start talking about it, we just get too angry and that’s not helping.
