The neighbor who leaves their dog chained up ALL of the time… the dog’s barking is actually the issue, but that’s not his fault.  He’s lonely and wants to be with someone!  When we walk our dog and stop by his yard to let them sniff each other, I swear it’s the longest period of peace the neighborhood gets. 

I couldn’t take him though.  6’2″ dude with some serious facial piercings… he outweighs me too! lol

I probably have the most bizarre nemesis on the planet….

Ladies, this is Troy. He is my DD’s BEST friend in the whole wide world. He is a toddler sized Power Ranger.

For a reason I will never understand, Dear Daughter has become SO attached to him and we bring him on a lot of our outings because there’s usually a lot of screaming and crying if we don’t. Cute right? WRONG. He’s clunky and too heavy for her to carry so I’m the one who has to carry Troy around and buckle him into the car. It’s always MY feet he gets dropped on (WHICH DRIVES ME BATTY). I’m the one who has to go back to the park because she left him under the play structure. I’m the one Dear Daughter gets mad at when Troy isn’t standing up on the carpet! 

It’s a love hate relationship. 

The day they met. Fiance thought it was hilarious that she wanted a life-size Power Ranger so he shelled out the $40!

Just an example of one of the places Troy likes to go with his BFF.

iarebridezilla:  My only comment is… they pee INTO your computer?! That seems excessive. Like, open up the CD drive to piss, excessive. Peeing ONTO the computer? Much more acceptable. 😉

Welcome to the world of parenting. Pretty sure there will always be someone interfering with your princess’ routine. Unless, of course, you keep her in a closely monitored bubble in the privacy of your own home 24/7. 

My nemesis is the guy who works the overnight shift at my office. He gets a front spot every day since his work day starts after all of us normal people have already left. He’s supposed to leave around 8:30am which is when I typically stroll in. Instead of leaving so my fat ass can get his spot, he stands in the lobby and flirts with the receptionist for what seems like an eternity so I end up parking wayyyy in the back since all of the good employees got to work on time at 8. So the front spot typically remains unoccupied until noon when people go out for lunch. That spot could have been mine if only the long haired, hippie guy would know when to skidaddle.

I’ve seen multiple cat posts here already, and I’m going to add to that.

Our neighbor volunteers at a cat rescue and is a wonderful woman.  She likes to help the neighborhood stray cats by putting out food for them.  Of course, this means that every cat in a half mile radius descends on her house during the day.  Generally they are fine and keep to themselves, but there is one orange male cat who likes to prance around our yard and act like a jerk.  He sits on the patio most days and taunts our dog, who is inside and can’t do a thing except bark and whine like an idiot.  We built a fence around our backyard last year and thought that would fix it.  Nope, he figured out how to climb it and now sits on top of it, which infuriates the dog even more.  My only consolation is that our neighbor was able to get him into a trap and release neutering program, so now he can’t knock up any more lady cats in the neighborhood.

Squirrels, that is right freaking squirrels.  With working from home, my office has a window which I have a bird feeder out front. Those freaking nasty ass things keep getting in my bird feeder. It is for the birds not you rodent… Get off of it! I am to the point I want a bb gun to start shooting them or start poisioning them.

lealorali: To you and every one else with knotwood as your enemy, you can borrow my nemesis (no need to return) any day!

Allow me to present The Cottage Groundhog… He might look all cute, but he eats freaking everything that I would like to keep alive out there – completely ignoring the stuff I want to see dead (cedar, poison ivy…). His mission in life is to kill my cherry tree and rob me of every twig of parsley that ever is brave enough to surface above ground. I hate his little gut, but I can do freaking nothing about it because all the listed methods on how to get rid of a ground hog would make me feel like an evil psycho. So ground hog vs. Eocenia: 90830750238737676871 – 0

iarebridezilla:  Troy hands down. That little eff’er could take me down with one foot stomp. Or you know, his sweet Power Ranger ninja moves.

iarebridezilla:  I never even considered the possibility it was a laptop! That makes perfect sense! And yeah.. no to the fan vent. I just imagine it buffeting back onto your feet. ‘Flipflops were a poor choice.’
