TWQ: Odd Neighbours

In TWQ (The Weekend Question) this week, we take a look next door...

Have you had any weird or unusual neighbours? Have you had any feuds with them? What is your experience with them?

Here is my answer:

In the last few years, the house next to mine has been a rented one. The owner lives elsewhere, and he rents it out. One of them was seen in the middle of the night loading all his furniture on to a truck and leaving without paying any more. He was not seen again. Another family who used to live next door ran an illegal car battery company from there. People would often come up to us and say, "Are you the fellow we get car batteries from"

Now it's over to you...

But before you go...

For those who didn't see it earlier in the week, here is the link to The Picard Song Be sure to to have your speakers on.

Michele sent me, Captain.

I bought my current house two and a half years ago. Of my 4 adjoining neighbors the weirdest one has since moved. The second oddest sold all her chickens--which is too bad since I liked them--and no longer maintains her truck garden. The other two houses have very conventional families in them. I've not had any problems with any of the families here...but I miss the chickens.

We have a neighbor who is obsessed with the hose. He is constantly outside aquirting the lawn, the sidewalk,, his car. Even in the rain.

Star said...

Oh, Forgot to say Michele sentme.

Its strange that so many people seem to have 'disputes' with neighbours at whatever level of society. When you think about demographics and postcode classifications, you'd expect similar 'types' of people to live near one another - and to live and let live so to speak- if the marketeers are anything to go by. I suppose it shows why marketing is such an inexact science.

Beaming across from Michele's.

Aw and m.m.m.m.make it so!

Viamarie said...

I have the same problem with Star until such time that we had to raise our fence.

Good day!

Hello, Michele sent me.
Most of my neighbours are unusual.

FRIDAY'S CHILD said...

Yes I do have such neighbors. I remember them borrowing mostly everything I have. But when times when smoothly for them they didn't seem to know me.

Stationery Queen said...

No one where I currently live speaks to their neighbors. Two of them will wave at us from across the street, but that's it. The woman next door, who we call "the crazy stray cat lady," likes to feed every cat she can find and as such we find mice around quite frequently. Can't. Wait. To. Move.

panthergirl said...

I grew up on a street where literally 50% of the inhabitants were nuts. There was one woman who regularly stood in the middle of our busy intersection and directed traffic.

Here via michele today!

Terri said...

I'm fortunate to live in a very small town on an island, where everyone knows everyone and is super friendly. My neighbors are great.
But...before moving here last year, I lived in the same house for 18 years and didn't even know my neighbors name. They weren't "weird" just not friendly.
Michele sent me today.

kenju said...

Where I live now, we have not had any weird neighbors, but in previous homes, I had a woman neighbor whose 4 year old son hit her and she said she couldn't control him. That's about as weird as it gets....LOL

Michele sent me.

TNChick said...

Small town here in TN and neighbors aren't any issue.

In SC we had neighbors - they were good but the neighbors neighbor was an issue. Weird, very very weird.

In CA we never knew our neighbors really, just a hi and bye when outside.

Jade said...

Good morning. First let me say Michele sent me. Now for the neighbor thing. Nothing too unusual really. Just very aged demented folks who can't hear and haven't figured out that white stuff on the ground means it's winter and that's not the time she ought to go for a walk in her house coat in the middle of the night looking for someone named Andy. It's sad really.

Ethan Hunt said...

Mr. Picard, is there Scientology in the Future?

Ciera said...

My downstairs neighbor snores, and the couple next to us don't remember to turn the radio up all the time when they have sex, and the other family that lives in the building with us - the mother is a witch. What an odd combination we are!!! I haven't a clue who lives in the building across the parkinglot and rather think that's ok!!!!

Better Safe Than Sorry said...

we've been extremely lucky with our last two homes, great neighbors. however, when we rented, it was another story. no out and out feuds, but alot of aggravation.

cyndy said...

My neighborhood has extremely rowdy and destructive children whose parents don't care. Sigh.

Nice blog..found you from Michele

Daydreamer of Oz said...

OMG our neighbours are psycho! All they do is drink & listen to loud thumping music....The *woman-thing* has this shrill obnoxious voice...One night I went over to complain (not about the noise but the shrill horrible noise coming out of that thing) & the guys started bagging their women calling them a name I'd rather not repeat...then they asked if they could come to my place to drink with me....OMG what weirdos! :)

Stephanie said...

ok i live in a trailer park and i reall dont know my noubers but i have givven them all names to what they do. like the gym aross the street he is always playing with his truck so we call him loud truck guy and so we have the crack shack, the dog lovers, the bitchs, and wish ti would bren down!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

I love these answers! I wonder if any of you were referring to one another at one stage?

In response to Ethan Hunt's question, there is a building devoted to Scientology in the 24th Century right next the statue of Emperor Cruise.

barbie2be said...

when i lived in phoenix i had just the best next door neighbor ever. i am allergic to all kinds of insect bites and stings and he would come over to kill scorpions for me. once, someone gave him tix to the nascar race at PIR and he had never been to an auto race before so he asked me to go with him because he knew i was crazy for it. :)

thanks for dropping in on me again tonight.

Karen said...

It's funny you ask this. We've never ever had a neighbor feud...until now. Our neighbors across the street have a 21-year old son. 2 years ago, one of his friends blew up, yes BLEW UP a car on our street. There have been many other incidents. The other day I called his parents because I saw what looked like a drug deal involving their son in front of our house. They denied it. Next time, I call the cops! Ugh!

Michele sent me and thanks for stopping by my place the other day!

kenju said...

Michele sent me back, Jean-Luc, and I am enjoying reading all the other comments about neighbors. It makes me glad I live where I do - nice people all around.

Carmi said...

Our next door neighbors' five-year-old son had a pretty immense temper. By the time they moved out, the walls lining the stairs to the basement had fist-sized holes in them where he had punched through during his rgularly scheduled rages.

Sad child. We're glad they moved.

Terri said...

Michele sent me back too, and like Kenju, I'm enjoying reading the other comments and glad I live where I do.

Guppyman said...

I used to have junkies that lived next door.... That was fun.

Michele says howdy!

Suzanne said...

I don't think i've really had any crazy neighbors, and i'm a very easy person to live next door to. My curent neighbor is a grumpy old lady, but I just write if off to her age!

mistipurple said...

The Picard Song is really cool. glad i caught it. thanks.

Funny you should ask - I could write a book here honey - but lets try to get it in a nutshell for you. Not one but both houses on each side of our middle class home in a very yuppy neighborhood have had the most unbelieveable people from hell in them that I wonder if our houses weren't built on an Indian burial ground!!! We have been thru 14 barking dogs 3 on one side and 11 on the other side......oh whoa is me. Then, due to a case of mistaken identity when another neighbor called the police on the barking offenders...I was blamed and then the harrassment started and lasted for several years. This included verbal threats to me, road rage, vandalism to our home, etc etc. We were not about to move - fought back via the courts and won....can you believe the one side was a school teacher at an upscale Catholic boys school (who used to entertain the younguns at her home for sleepovers). In the meantime, the schoolteacher gets a new boytoy to move in with her and he's a 3 time felon charged with possession of a firearm and for stealing jet skis. Guess what keeps coming into the garage at midnight and on? Jet skis - then the clown works on them all night and someone picks them up at 5:00 in the morning. Of course, this disturbs all our our sleep patterns and I am forced to call the cops - continuously. She ends up marrying the guy (that lasts for about 4 yrs) - up goes a fence - in goes a security camera (cha-ching) and there goes my sanity. Other neighbors weren't sure whom to believe...our camp or their camp.....which really caused us some hurt feelings. But in the end what goes around comes around and belive you me they have finally gotten theirs and at their own hands. I am glad we never moved - our daughter loved it here and we tried to keep her protected from knowing what was going on - what a story we can tell her when she grows up huh...and this is just a fraction of what actually happened to us.
