*whew!* i apologize for my absence, for i have been held up with some issues that required my immediate attention.
*blogger is acting afool and i couldn't upload my pics, sorry*
first things first, the dog has been safely returned to his owner in one piece and with minimal emotional scarring....just kidding, lol!
now, let me give you some background. i live in a pretty quiet neighborhood, where MOST of us are considerate of each other. but of course, there are a few bad apples that abuse the beauty that is our community. in case you did not know, i have personally taken on the task of being the unofficial neighborhood organizer of events and concerns. it started because someone moved in and started being a nuisance. she had some issues and almost burnt her house down FOUR TIMES!! this was especially upsetting to me because i was her direct neighbor, so if she went up in smoke, there was a good chance i would too depending on if we were home and ho wlong the fire actually burned. come to find out, she had a drinking problem and would pass out while cooking. i did not rest until i petitioned the city and had her removed...she was renting this property so it was somewhat easier than if she was the actual owner. regardless, i was the one who organized the petitions, gathered signatures, made phone calls and had phone conferences/debates to efficiently communicate how urgently we all were displeased. and she got the boot...2 days after thanksgiving last year.
fast forward, here comes another renter to this same property. she's strange, always looks dissheveled and confused and sometimes even wears the same clothes for days. i really didn't care because she was quiet and had no issues that affected anyone else...until last week. PCD was walking around the neighborhood with lil PCD and we almost stepped in dog poo. um, NO FRIGGIN WAY!!! see, the rules are simple...we live in a gated community with landscapers. there are NO PETS until you are an owner. if you are a renter, you may NOT have any pets. if you are an owner and have a dog, you MUST pick up after its poo because if you are caught not doing so, then its trouble. well, what did we have here? little miss new renter has gotten a puppy. and its was her dog's poo. the NERVE of her? but that wasn't even the worst part...i was sitting home doing my thing when i heard a smoke detector nearby...(yes, my windows were up and i have excellent hearing). it was chick next door with the illegal dog. she locked herself out when she went to go walk her pooch and left something cooking. well, i called the fire department and it was handled...but now, i'm gunning for her. how dare you flaunt your illegal dog all outside, let it poo on the sidewalks and not pick it up, then you almost possibly kill me by burning down your place cuz you're out with said dog?
so i organized my posse and have my current petition going. i will NOT live around craziness and you get all of one time to endanger me with some stupidity (in which i have to intervene) before i'm ready to get you G-O-N-E!!!!! so i've been pretty busy for the past few days knocking on doors and going to talk with others about these concerns.
***HAVE YOU EVER HAD A NEIGHBOR FROM HELL???? WHAT WERE THEY DOING TO DISRUPT THE PEACE??? HOW'D YOU HANDLE IT???***
