We had a family buy a house in town. It was kind of run down,and they were fixing it up. The 2nd floor had these HUGE floor to ceiling windows. They figured since they were re-shingling the house and planned on replacing the windows from the 30's,that they'd put in ones that were half the size. The biggest reason they wanted to do this was because they had an autistic son and they were afraid he'd bang on the window,smash it and fall out.
The neighbor got everyone all riled up in the neighborhood about keeping up the "historical look" to this house and filed numerous complaints against these folks. He even took it to the city council.
So all this time that the house was sitting there looking like shit and falling into disrepair,he had no problem with it,but when this couple wants to put in new windows,he has a problem?!
PS,the couple won that case.
You would not even believe how Off the Wall my Whole Cul-de-sac of neighbors were- it is funny now but, it wasn't then- i felt like a prisoner in my own home! it got So Bad we had to get a No Contact Order on All of them-NO Joke! when we first moved in we had a landscaper come to do the yard- Can you believe that one of the next door neighbors actually came outside with her PLOT PLAN to make sure he wasn't planting flowers in her yard?! They told us we shouldn't have moved in w/ teenagers b/c all of their kids were in Elementary School & would get SO Mad if any of their friends parked in the cul-de-sac & called the police 17 times- it was a Public Street.. when we had two Palm Trees planted in our yard; the Home Owners Association Demanded we remove them! we had to get a lawyer over it! but, we Won:) LOL.. there was So Much More!

My neighbors are so awful. They got divorced a couple years ago and the mom stayed with her teenage kids who have no respect. They throw cigarette butts in my yard, let their friends drive through my yard, steal, my lawn flamingos, let their vicious dogs run all over the neighborhood, dig under the fence in my back yard and the dogs get in. I have had to call the police because of noise and SPCA because of the dogs, one of which had tried to attack me. They have loud fights in the driveway. They are just horrible. We are all hoping their house is foreclosed on and they leave.
