    Neighbors from hell

    Does anyone live next to neighbors from hell? If so, did you decide to upgrade the exhaust and make your car scream at 4am, since your neighbors tell you your music is too loud. And call the cops 3 times on you?!?

    Anyone here go through this is and decide f' it, and put a mean exhaust note
    through their windows

    Because I'm almost ready to really make noise.

    Re: Neighbors from hell

    I try to stay on a friendly relationship with my neighbors, but I am generally a major fail at it.
    I try and treat people as if I would like to be treated by them. Sometimes it is very difficult at best.
    I have found it a good idea to not PO some people that you do internal & external business with.
    You're either a customer of theirs or they're a customer of yours.
    I have found it a good idea to not PO the following for self-survival purposes:
    You're mail deliverer: PO him & he/she just might fail to deliver your next credit card billing,
    or any bill that carries late charges. I place a small unopened, cold, bottle of water in with the
    outgoing mail every couple of hot days, & sometimes with the flag up even when there's no outgoing mail.
    Guard at the gate of gated community when going in, I always ask him if I could bring him a bottle or water
    every so often. He always says no thank you, but he is always courteous to me when I come in the gate or I have visitors.
    I try and be nice to all emergency personnel, as I know that when it comes time for someone to try and save me or take
    me to the hospital, it will be one of them. LEO's, same thing. It always pay to be friendly & courteous to them, they also might
    be the ones coming to save you & / or your family, & it might also remind you to not cop a tude when pulled over.
    Parking lot guard at Wally World, same thing, offer to bring them water or a small item of food, & they will keep an eye on your
    car like their life depended upon it. Store clerks, same thing.
    I have some neighbors that I try and keep on a good basis with, the others can go pound salt.
    You will find, just as I have found, no man is an island and everyone must have some friends
    somewhere to cover their arse for them.
    Rely upon the people that you are nice to, and they will probably cover your back.

    Good advice from a fellow older guy. Only life experience teaches that. Better to learn that ASAP, regardless of age.

    Re: Neighbors from hell

    The appropriate ratio of friends to enemies is 2-3 friends for every 1 enemy.
    The opposite is not a good idea.
    "A friend of an enemy is my enemy, but
    an enemy of my enemy is my friend".

    Tattoos can lead to regret when you finally grow up and need a job.

    Everybody admires the "James Dean" attutide,
    but in the end, even James Dean didn't get by with it.

    Thanks guys. When the cops tell you there's something really wrong with them 'neighbors' and they don't see why, and it's not loud music, that's a red flag. They ran the other neighbors by them off, too. As in they moved!

    These neighbors are hell.

    They'll tell you how to raise your kid, water your yard, etc . One of those 'I know best' kinds of folk.

    I run a very successful business. I treat people with respect. But if you run yourself onto my turf for no real legitimate reason, and call cops at 6pm, while my kids are outside, and cause a scene....with family over, ......it's all over.

    If THEY WANTED SILENCE, they need to move to the country.

    Re: Neighbors from hell

    Oh boy -- the neighbors from hell.

    When I built my current home twenty years ago, a nice young couple were building next door (in the country -- about 500 feet from their house to mine). Over the years, it was not uncommon to hear their arguments, even with the space between houses. About a decade ago they sold the house in the midst of a divorce. After they moved, she became the real neighbor (or ex-wife) from hell -- do a Google search for "acid lady" and "murder" to see the whole story. She and her accomplist/lover got life.

    The new neighbors seemed pleasant -- he was a deputy sherriff and it seemed nice to have law enforcement in the neighborhood. But the arguments were even louder. Eventually, they too divorced, but no murder this time.

    The third family to move in also seemed nice. But the first thing that they did was to announce to the neighborhood that they were putting a mobile home next to the house (in total violation of local regs). The neighborhood got together, protested to the county, and no mobile home was allowed. But they were pissed off. So they turned the vacant space next to the house (closest to my home) into a dirt bike track, with lots of noise most weekends. Sometimes you can't win.

    Re: Neighbors from hell

    Every neighborhood has one of those types...sometimes they live down the street and other times next door. My next door neighbor was from hell. So I returned the favor. At least now it's just a stand off. They don't bother me and I don't bother them....for now anyway.
