  • yes. i would ask. just explain the problem and see what she says. my neighbors always are open with requests and problems . . in one instance our watering was seeping into the next door neighbors rose bushes and causing them to be unhealthy. the neighbor talked to us about it, and we adjusted . . .no problem.

    it could be as easy as a conversation . . . i'd move my trash for you.

  • I'd move them for you too if you asked nicely.

    I hope there's a reasonable other place for her to put them.

  • I agree with others, if you asked nicely I would happily move my trash cans for you. Good luck (c:

  • Every time we have a new tenant next door we have a similar issue. Some take it well, others called CPS on us. "Life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what your going to get" - Forrest Gump was a wise man :-)
