I am currently trying my best not to have an outer body experience! This past Friday night our neighbor's German Shepard, (probably still a puppy) came in our yard AGAIN. Circling around two our our daughters, (probably wanting to play). We don't have dogs, if we wanted dogs in our yard we would buy one. Anyway, I yelled across the way for them to get their dog out of our yard. ( I will leave the ugly language out) My husband yelled across the way, "If it happens again I will call the law. The dog went home. The neighbor lady, comes back to the edge of our property and said, "Sorry about that." I shot back, "Don't let it happen again." She said, " I said sorry about that." I said again, "Don't let it happen again." Yes, I was mad. Not the best reply but it could have been worse! Not to mention the dog jumped up and scratched one of the girls.
The lady leaves......then comes back. She started yelling at me that when she apologizies to me I damn well better accept it. I told her to get her blank off of my property, she said something else and went to cussing me like a crazy women. So up the hill I go. We got into one of the ugliest and loudest confrontations. Finally, she left. Saturday and Sunday she walks her dog along both sides of our property, it was obvious that she was trying to make a statemnt, she would turn around and come right back by. Drives her suv down the road, stops in front of our driveway and revs up her engine, not once but three times. Last night, her dog came after a little old lady that was walking her dog, I called up to the road to make sure the little lady was okay. She was, she said, "Why don't they have their dog in their yard?" She then said, "I'll just go home, guess I'm not supposed to walk my dog today." Maybe 5 minutes later the mean neighbor lady walks her dog by, on a leash talking loud and UGLY, just for me to hear I'm sure.
This morning, I take my girls to school come home and what do I find? In two of my flower beds the bird baths are knocked over, my beautiful Paperwhites have been cut, and I mean cut, perfect straight lines, the wind chime is on the ground, the cactus has been broken, the nandina is pulled out of the ground, roots and all and the hanging basket of wondering Jew is taken off the hook on the side of the tree and sitting on the ground. I was almost in tears. I called the law and filed a report. I just figured that after the yelling match on Friday, the walking of the dog close to our property and the revving of the suv it would die down and she would become the neighbor that I don't speak to. Apparently she has a problem with me because during the arguement, she said that I was a redneck white trash B--ch that didn't have a job and stayed bent over in my yard all the time. I told her that's because I have a husband that can take care of me. See she has been having an affair and all of that came out too. You see a lot of things when you stay home and observe the comings and goings of your neighbors. The entire neighborhood knows about her. My question is this............If I ignore her, as I have been doing this past weekend, it bothers her and if I say anything to her that will cause problems too. So, what would you do?
Yes, my feelings are hurt very badly about the damage she done to our yard. I know it was her. Everyone else around here stops to chat about my flowers. Over 5 years and NEVER has any of my things been disturbed, Oh other than a rocking chair was stolen from our front porch two years ago............Could that have been her?
