What happened to neighbors being neighbroly?
I had some guests over Saturday for a small get together. And Yes, I wasn’t quite paying attention to where they park, Usually my wife takes care of that and lets everyone know, I completely forgot.
Well, We had an issue with one of our neighbors on Christmas Eve, because someone parked in front of an empty lot next to her house that her son usually parks in. Her son asked them to move and they did (although she will argue that they were rude, they were not).
Well, this time around, she just called the tow truck and didn’t even knock on my door until AFTER the tow truck was here (I think it was her family’s company). My person immediately moved their vehicle.
I tried to explain to her that she could have came to my door BEFORE she called the tow truck, which is a common courtesy. She got very rude and agitate and wouldn’t let me explain and was improperly quoting the rules. She states because she warned my mother on Christmas eve that the next time it happened she would tow the car. Okay, that was how many months ago? People are prone to forget.
She feels that she can just call the cops/and threaten to tow vehicles whenever she wants. She is never neighborly.
She also stated she was going to call the police on me, for god only knows what. (OH! And my name is apparently “brent”)
I was very cordial, until she kept cutting me off and I finally did tell her “Go to hell” and walked away. She just wasn’t listening anymore. She kept quoting the rules and I tried to tell her I know the rules. (working on the Communications/Marketing Committee here, I reformatted the entire rules! I can locate a rule in the rule book faster than you can call management!)
All my guests were shocked, because they have never seen me that agitated before. This lady just got on my last nerve. I was so embarrassed that my guests had to witness that whole fiasco.
After talking with the “proper” channels. I found out that she doesn’t have the right to just tow cars. That I could prosecute if she ever did. She either would need to call management or call the cops.
Also, one of my other neighbros let my guest park in front of her house, cause she could here the whole thing and she wanted to be “neighborly”. She rocks!
Oy, what a weekend.
