So today, once again, we heard from our rental company that our neighbor filed a complaint about us. This time it was noise. My hubby has the game Rocksmith http://rocksmith.ubi.com/rocksmith/en-US/home/index.aspx that he likes to play to unwind after work. It is a really cool guitar learning concept game much like Guitar Hero but you use a real guitar (or in his case bass). His bass playing has improved immensely and he is also able to play away the stress he tends to carry home with him each day. I also like it because it’s non violent so there are no worries about little kiddo seeing bad stuff AND it fills the house with music which I greatly prefer over television.
Now keep in mind we have a two year old so he isn’t shaking the windows with volume. The houses here are mostly rentals and they are not thick walled so yes, you can hear the music if you are standing outside. He always turns it off by 9PM as the 14 year old goes to bed at that time.
During the day I can hear this same neighbor’s husband playing banjo. Not once did I ever think to call the HOA on HIM!
Every time there is a “complaint” against us it’s from her. Last year we had Christmas lights up on our back deck on January 3rd…. She called on us. Other neighbors had lights up but we got the HOA letter. In the Summer, during the drought, our grass turned brown…we are the only ones that got a letter even tough the whole block of lawns looked like hell.
And people wonder why I wanna live far away from other people.
We are not trashy. I keep a nice yard, our cars are newer, our kids well behaved, and our dog never barks. She has hated us from day one. Maybe it’s my husbands scary beard and the Harley he rode in on. Maybe it’s all my tattoos. I have no clue.
The most annoying thing is I let her get me all pissed off. I have mentioned before I cannot cook dinner when I am angry. At least the chicken was good. Sorry family about all the failed bland side dishes!!
I don’t even know the point of this post. Here I haven’t blogged in a week and now I am ranting. Haha oh well, I feel better for it. Hubby and I were laughing at how we have mellowed in our old age. Had we been our wild 20′s she would have a brick thru her damn window. Now I just stew for a bit and get on with my day…and rant a bit.
Counting my blessings and pitying my neighbor, a person that is so unhappy they have to do everything in their power to make others unhappy.Hell maybe she thinks we are the Clopecks…
Live and let live folks .Karma is a bitch.
