spoke to the mom yesterday
she informed me that when you press on her door bell (if you pause and hold the button in) the bell ringing continuously inside (but i think the person on the outside would think it was ONE press)
nice information to know- LMAO
i said then all last summer when i was with my child to make she she was just ringing once, and using please and thank you (etc), she could very well have pressed the door bell once, but held it down (so much for a year plus of me making sure she had door bell etiquette.
while the wife was showing me how her bell door is not working right, her husband came around the corner SCREAMING!, " not this again, you will just not let it go, you are passive aggressive,etc" he is SCREAMING and his eyes were nearly rolled back in his head
i picked up my child who was playing in their yard and let. A neighbor was coming around the corner to check on his daughter... he left with his child a moment later.
the wife comes to my door 20 minutes later, she wanted to talk outside, i invited her in , she did not want to , but i said i did not have shoes and socks on and it is cold, come in (her 2.5 year old was running around outside earlier without an adult watching him, in a t shirt and a diaper- but that is another story) the wife wanted to applogise, but it was a back handed apology. she said her husband's feelings were hurt (whatever??) i said , "do you think that his anger was ok?" she did not but still made excuses for him, i said the whole thing about how i follow my child to make sure she is going to doors correctly, but if i did not know that one long press rings endlessly in your home, certainly my daughter did not,
she said I was angry when i spoke to him the other day, and i said really, you were not there, did you see his anger today?!- that is what i got the other day
she said "this i snot going well, i should leave", i said "i thank you for coming and saying you are sorry, and i appreciate it"
she stormed off
being married to someone who has so much anger has to make a person angry/crazy and sorry for things they did not do
and for the record... i do not think for a MINUTE his feelings were hurt (you do not act like a ragging asshole when your feeling are hurt... however you can be embarrassed when you act like a ragging crazy asshole and a neighbor walks around the corner ( a male neighbor) not a single mom neighbor who you think you can intimidate
who wants to buy a house 2 doors down from me?
would any of you think that after living on same block for 3 years, they MIGHT have mentioned that their bell will continue to ring if you pause when you press it? my child is little (hence reason i follow to make sure she is learning how to ask friends to play, say thank you etc etc) she would never think to press the button quickly and not hold down... but i KNEW she was not ringing, ringing ringing it (like their 5 year old does to my doorbell)
so creepy angry asshole neightbor guy yelled at my child, freaked her out so bad that she hide under a blanket for 2 HOURS...and she was not even ringing it off the wall, she had pressed down on it and did not unpress, so one long press...YUP, that warrants a grown man to get in a five year olds face and scare the crap out of her

Next question overall
If I was in love with somebody 17 years ago can I still be in love?
