Neighbors want us to buy them a new swingset

Our neighbors had a big, fancy custom made swingset/play house that the neighborhood kids loved to play on. Apparently they were making payments on it as some type of rent to own deal with the company but they weren’t actually paying the payments so their swingset was repossessed 😐

They asked if we (all the neighbor kids parents) would pitch in for a new one since the kids loved it so much. I told the neighbor that I would buy them a swingset if they would buy me a pool lol

Seriously, who asks something like that? I would be upset that all the neighbors just watched my swingset get repossessed instead of going around asking for money for a new one.

I’m just going to buy a swingset for my sons birthday since he enjoys it so much.

If I bought one, it would go in my yard.

Yea, that’s what I’m doing. It would be stupid to buy them a swingset for their yard, those things get expensive.

Well expect their kids to be at your house to play on your new swingset in the near future. :)

Maybe they figured people enjoyed the break from their kids & would be willing to pay for it. 😂

They normally bounce from house to house anyway. One neighbor has the latest video games and huge ass tv, one neighbor had the swingset, and we have the giant yard for soccer and kickball

Idk that I would be letting all the kids in the neighborhood play on it though. I think that was crazy of your neighbors to allow. If one of those kids get hurt, they could have been held liable. It is a nice idea but not everyone is that nice and will be looking for a lawsuit.

You make a good point and it would probably be the neighbors who just lost their swingset who would sue. The other neighbors aren’t as crazy as they are.
