New Neighbor, Seen the Display and Wants it to Stop


Recommended Posts

Looks like I was the last to post in this category so here I go again.

I saw a new neighbor moving in while on the tractor.  So I stopped to introduce my self and see if he would like me to disk his weeds while I was at it.

He was very friendly and all went well until he stopped me from walking back to my tractor with; wait a minuet, we have been out to see your christmas display for many years.  Your done doing that right? We don't want all those cars driving down our street.  I was polite and said; well I plan on doing the display until I'm to old to.  In the conversation I got around to saying you knew about it before you rented here.  He ended by saying nice meeting you, we'll see about that display.   

Great.

simply....wow!  So he has been out to enjoy it, but wants to make sure no one else does now?  Talk about selfish

and he is renting the place?  He was familiar with the neighborhood before moving in, but it is not like he has a "stake" in the local property values.  Just worried about traffic affecting himself.  unbelievable!  Attack from the otherside....get in good with his wife and give her some lights for her to decorate their new home!  We all know the wife gets what the wife wants.

This is my biggest nightmare. The older couples in my neighborhood ate moving out. This year ill have 2 maybe 3 new neighbors. Already spoke to one.

Can't believe the nerve of the guy. You move in, see the display every year, then hippie it stops. There's words for a person like that.

This is crazy! Yes, I have been to your show so I clearly knew about it before I moved it... still decided to rent here.... just ignore the guy for now, most likely his kids? would be really upset if he was responsible for cancelling the christmas light show down the street

 

This concerns me too as I have a new neighbor, I think they did a walk through of the house when I had my lights up last year but I am not sure... guess I just have to wait and see if they say anything when the lights start going up!

New Neighbors last year ext door to my display. Moved in when the yard was covered in Halloween stuff. He said I can come in to his yard as far as I want.

 

The nerve of some people. The night you turn the lights on send some sunglasses over there, wouldn't want him to be bothered by all the lights:lol:

I am safe on one side...I own the house!  The tenants rented Dec 15th....they saw it in full glory and love it!  Was a great way for them to meet a lot of neighbors too as the kids give out hot chocolate a couple weekends throughout the month.  

I only had one couple last year make a threat....They just moved in from Connecticut and were disappointed that not enough people decorate around here.  Told me I would have some serious competition next year!

WOW aren't some people just unbelievable?

Ops new neighbor sounds like a real piece of work, or something!

But I can beat it! Ive had neighbors living next door for about 16+ years. They have 2 daughters [spawn of mentally ill, white trash]  For as long as I could remember the kids would come and play in my display [by play I mean run around and break stuff. I NEVER wanted it, but my mom would say you have to let them, so I did. They would come literally every other night run around, and have fum breaking stuff. Then the older ones birthday was in January, so scumbag mom would ask, you don't mind if scumbag jr brings a couple of her friends over do you? Well a couple of friends was 15 -20 screaming kids running around breaking things, and just annoying the hell out of me, every year!

At any rate, had a fallout with the scumbag dad, after he threatened me one day, and haven't talked a word since, which is REALLY good...

 

Fast forward to the year it all happen, when I would be outside at night enjoying display, and saying hi to  people. Both scumbag mom, and scumbag older daughter who now drives would leave their driveway, and if they saw me lay on the horn from the moment the hit the street till they got to the stop sign beeeeeepppppppppppp no stop,prolly an 1/8 mile. Now let me ask is the term scumbag low life fitting? On top of that I know where scumbag low life mom works, and have friends that work with her, she tells all her coworkers what a problem I'm becoming, till one of them put her in her low life place, saying wait a minute didn't you and your daughter go over there ALL the time!?!?!?

I guess I have been lucky.  The old folks in the neighborhood like more decorations being out as they have gone downhill in the past.  And with new families moving into the neighborhood with um.. old folks downsizing.. nothing brightens up the holidays like getting competitive dads to decorate.

Talked to the guy again today seem much more interested in my display so I asked wha the meant in our last conversation.  He stated that he and his wife moved out to the country for quiet and the had just discussed the cars before I showed up.  I relaid to him what the traffic load looks like nightly and the distance from house to house.  I don't think we have a problem anymore.

I wouldnt way ANYONE would shoot, but WE are protective of what IS ours....so let me ask Dougg....some person comes up and cuts all the wires to your display...totally trashing it, after you have spent many $$ on it.....countless hours....you just forgive them??  OR you have a gorgeous 68' pontiac firebird convertable and some low life keys it up...for no reason, other then stupidity,or nothing better to do?? It's a petty crime? I don't know where or how you where raised, but it's called respect.    Mind your own business and respect others property, possessions and leave well enough alone..    I think I vented,but for God's sake, don't think I am a vigilante by any means.  I don't think anyone would be happy if someone ,just, started hacking up your hobby, creativity and they would JUST forgive them....not where I was raised

Well...not sure why someone stealing the copper isn't able to work. I have always been taught to work . Society has TOO many mooches,that would rather steal then work for what they have...AKA democratic society....let's feed  off the working class WHO do work...that's worked SO well.    As for a child, as you say, I blame the parents for there stupididty... I am no lawyer, but YOU are responsible for ALL and ANY actions,that your child does, in terms of misconduct, til they are 18.   Guns are a great tool, for self defense. Kill or be killed and shoot if your life is in danger. I do belive there are castle laws?? I could be wrong.        I don't beleive any person has ANY right to steal...regardless of what medicine they are trying to buy.   Work though the problems you have. As for the whole christian aura, I gather, 1 of the 10 commandments is Thou shall not steal... I am not a holy person at all, nor do I portray to be.    What happened to common sense?? I would say, if someone is snooping around your house, wife, kids, display, ect, UNINVITED, they are up to no good...shooting them isn't an answer, but if harm where to follow....hmmmmm I wouldn't flinch to stop a threat to my family, house, personal possesions ect

OMG we have gotten way off a topic of christmas....a final response to all the back and forth banter.    I am NOT in the old days by any means. I have worked two jobs to have have what i have.  Nothing has been handed to me.    I do drive older cars, paid for. Live within my means. And blame today's democratic fed society....the lies ,the broken promises.  I ,me and my family live WAY within our means. A small mortage. No car loans. No credit card debt. And yes, I COULD pay for my mortgage, flipping burgers. I weep for the younger generation.  I was raised in a family of 6 kids, and have to say, mom and dad did an outstanding job.   I have guys ,at my work make fun of what I drive (it's an 14 yr old car)  fun thing is , I don't have to keep up appearances.  Keeping up with the Jones...never.   funny thing ,is a laugh every month to the bank. Poor saps at work, have truck payments that is 3/4 of my mortgage.  Hey, if that's what floats your boat, I say go for it.  I guess I was raised, and instilled, with common sense. Never live outside your means.. I don't blame the government for anything of selling out.   It's idiots,  living to the beat of a differant drum and buying items ,they cant afford. Listen to the Styx song...Grand Illusion. Listen to it and tell me if I am wrong.     There are jobs out there. It may not be the dream job, but it's a job.  And finally, I do have to say, Dave Ramsey is a man worth listening to. He's a good ol' boy, and has ALOT of common sense. He has lost everything and lives within his means and now is a multi millionare.        So, asked, no I wouldn't steal to feed my family. I live within my means.     As for the idiots who has had so many hand outs from big brother,  are the ones stealing...

Well...I would say, sell all material possions...to pay off my house (it's been talked about) and if need be, downsize...I do know for a fact, that there is MORE than enough to live off of...always a back up.   As for living in your means, only YOU can make that decision...no one is holdin a gun to your head to buy that 450k house making 75 k a year... anyone whom thinks they can, are going to strapped ,and that spare bedroom, Murphy WILL move in. I am not worried in the least honestly. Let's get back to the forum:)

I am not overly worried at all...seating pretty good here... not to many worries, other then what's for dinner. I don't buy into all the dome and gloom, liberal news media hype, or the Clinton News Network BS...to bad for the neighbors, Co workers of yours. But if you allow it to happen and have no plan, you will fail
