I am so jealous of you… I grew up being close to one of my neighbors and I miss it so much!!!

We are in a stand alone house now and the people to the left of us are always coming and going… they have a BUNCH of people living with them. They really don’t bother me so far except their kids always come up to my dog when she is outside. I don’t understand why people don’t teach their kids NOT to go up to random dogs you do not know. Thankfully we keep an eye on her incase something weird were to happen.

The people to the right of us are absolutely crazy. Cars coming and honking at all hours. Then this girl who lives there (she can’t be more than 18?!) is always knocking on our door asking to use the phone. I let her in several times, but some is really sketchy about her. Once she asked me to take her to the store. Any of the stores around us aren’t close either… Something told me not to, so I made up an excuse. I asked if I could give her something instead, and she told me she needed drinks because her water was turned off… I felt bad and I gave her a gallon jug of water (we don’t keep soda or anything). Immediately after, she said “Don’t you have any koolaid packets or anything?” ….which put me off because I’m trying to help her. She didn’t even say thank you. 

She asked how I liked our new place since we moved in January, I told her that I really liked it and it was an upgrade from where we used to live. She said “Must be nice!” like I was priviledged or something… when we BOTH live in a nice neighborhood…

She then said that she really wants a smoke and asked me if I had an ciggs… I told her no I didn’t smoke and I couldn’t if I wanted to because I was pregnant. So she said “Oh, are you having twins?” 

-_- 

She was quickly ushered out the door after that. I haven’t opened the door for her since. So yeah, really weird neighbors.

I have hippie neighbors who like to feed raccoons and have 8 or 9 cats running around. So no, I do not have awesome neighbors. The ones kitty corner to me were evicted recently and that was great but they were trashy and left garbage and stuff outside and the homeowner has yet to clean it up.

@Payless:  I hate being taken advantage of!! I love helping people out, but enough is enough. Especially if you are judging me while I’m helping you out! 

I’m weird about my car though. I guess you could say I’m selfish, but she’s not insured to drive my car and I’m not taking her to the store to buy smokes. Especially someone I barely know. My deductible is $500 and I know she isn’t going to pay it! 

[email protected] lemons! Unless you have a lemon tree in your backyard, that’s a really weird item to assume someone has on hand!!

I live in an apartment building with only 4 units. I hate my neighbors. I dont think it would matter who they are, i would still not like them. I dislike being able to hear someone elses vaccuum/music/hammering a nail. I know that its part of apartment living, but JEESH its really irritates me!

My neighbors on one side are great, but not the other.
