    I used to have a neighbor similar to the one mentioned on this person's web log. My next door chum was not only quite "white-trashy" but he had the lovely disorder of Tourettes Syndrome.
    This log had me laughing out loud.

    He is quite the handyman! [​IMG] But I must say that the man-made waterfall takes the cake.

    I see these kind of houses all the time. In fact, it sort of reminds me of my father-in-law and some of his projects around the house (he calls them "Tucson crude", meaning, they work, but don't look good). He's not loud, though.

    I have one for you.

    We live in a ground floor flat (condo) in the middle of San Francisco in a neighborhood commonly known as Haight Ashbury.

    Maybe you heard of it, lotsa people have....but not the idiot who lives above us.

    Why does she move to Haight Ashbury?

    So she can have peace and quiet to write a book.

    Only Manhattan has a higher population density than San Francisco. Many nice quiet burbs around.....buuuutttt nooooo!

    She is like the morons who move next to an airport and complain about the sound.

    Even after spending $1000s for heavily soundproofing our ceilings she bitches AND THEN SHE HAS THE NERVE TO ASK ME TO HELP HER FIX HER CAR AND OTHER THINGS!

    I had daydreams when putting up the ceiling that one of the nails from the nailgun would hit a void and go up her ass

    I would then smile....I love that dream

    My neighbors are pretty tame. I do have one though, that lives below me that's a bit odd. Every few days she comes up to my apartment and asks to use my phone. . she's already lived here for about 6 months. I suppose she doesn't plan on ever getting her own phone? I keep telling her no and she keeps coming back. . . [​IMG]

    Guy's got a lot of respect for the US flag laying them on the ground like that.

    To be honest, I was expecting a much worse story. His neighbours are stupid, dumb, inconsiderate, yes. But are they "bad"? THey don't appear to have threatened him. They comply with the law when told to do so. They haven't been abusive to him or his family. Yes, they're incredibly dumb. But they could be much much worse.

    I agree with BrianB. They seem rather dumb, but otherwise they come off as decent neighbors. But that guy should STOP all home improvement projects NOW, that mailbox and the "waterfall" are hideous. [​IMG]
    I like the flagpole though, when we get a flagpole I want it to be high like that.

    Oh my...

    And I thought I was going to have something to beat whatever was on that page. I don't have any police-calling level problems with my neighbors, but I'm starting to get perturbed.

    I live in an apartment building with four units. One across the (outdoor) hall, one upstairs from me and a fourth upstairs from the neighbor. The across-the-hall neighbor spends almost all her time at home sitting in the area outside both our apartments. She has three chairs and a table with an ashtray out there at ALL times. You can tell when she's out there by the constant phlegmy roar of smoker's cough.

    When the neighbor directly upstairs from me is home, he will often come out and have conversations with the lady across the hall which consist of every last grammatical structure in the English language being amended to include "f#*kin'" or "motherf#*ker." This will often continue until 2am (or later!). Sometimes, there are four people outside the apartment when I come home. Thankfully, there has only been one altercation which required police assistance, and they called the police themselves!

    The other upstair neighbors just moved in, and unfortunately, they seem to be of the same drink, smoke and party persuasion.

    I think these people are bad but my neighbors down the street beat them.I got a guy down the sidestreet from us that has had 3 drug raids on his house, and is breaking the 6 dogs to a yard law because he has 16 pitbulls in his backyard and whats worse is that everytime you pass his house it smells like dog shit because of all the dogs in the backyard .
