Lazy Neighbors

We've got some funny neighbors next door. You know those little advertisements that businesses hang on your doorknob? Well, we got one for a pizza joint yesterday afternoon but it's still hanging on our neighbor's door. And they've come home from work yesterday, left for work this morning and have come home this evening. Three opportunities so far to take it off and toss it.

I'm really noticing this time and counting the days (and snickering at the same time) because last winter all the apartments got new phone books. It took them over 2 weeks -- 2 WEEKS! -- to take theirs inside (or throw out, don't know which) and it became hilarious tracking their laziness. Day after day of those phone books sitting next to their doormat. I was surprised the apartment manager didn't come by and ask them to do something with them. Anyway, it's quite amusing and little do they know that I'm announcing it to the whole world.

Don't get me started on bad neighbors..........
I don't know if I told you this, but we just bought a house in a very nice neighborhood and just got all moved in last night. You know how there is one bad family on every block? They are right next to us. They do EVERYTHING in their front yard...they have stuff from lawn furniture to a teatherball set-up. They BBQ in the front yard... and just set up a dart board out there. What's wrong with their friggin back yard???? They were playing darts at 2am a few nights ago. Everyone who comes over gets a good laugh and says we need to put up a fence. The funny thing is, none of this was going on when we
were buying the house. The sellers
must have bribed them to look good for a month.
It really makes us mad because we picked this area specifically to avoid things like this, and here we are......

Yikes! That sounds terrible! I never knew you bought a house -- that part is wonderful. Send me some pictures sometime. As long as we're in the Bay Area, and houses cost nearly $700k then we will likely continue to rent. :(

The neighbors took it down yesterday afternoon when the guy was taking out the garbage -- he took it on his way out. Well, at least it didn't take them two weeks this time.
