Don't Be A Crappy Neighbor {Part 2}

So for those of you who have been around since the beginning, you might remember one of my earlier posts I wrote on this blog: Today's PSA, Don't Be A Crappy Neighbor. If you haven't seen that post, take a minute to give it the once over so you'll be all caught up, mmkay?

In case you are wondering, my crappy neighbors are still letting the flat tires of their vehicles overlap into my yard. They are still operating what at least looks like a miniature car lot from their driveaway and in more of their fair share of the culdesac, and they are STILL blocking my damn mailbox. I get mail like once a week around here. It's infuriating.

As irritating as these people are, they aren't the ones I"m complaining about today :) 

I"m here to give you one more tip on how to not be a crappy neighbor. This is a very simple task, but it must be taken seriously. Are you listening? Maybe you should write this down.

Do not, under ANY circumstance, allow your three grown basset hounds (whom are outside dogs) to bark from 9:30 PM until, well, it's currently 2:41 AM. 

I have not yet been to sleep because of these lovely howling hound dogs and I feel like my head is spinning in circles and is about to pop off.

Thank you, normally awesome neighbors, for being so crappy today. 

Note: I wouldn't be so irritated but these dogs are constant barkers. Usually after awhile they will stop with the nonsense but they have literally been howling for over 5 hours at this point.

Do your neighbors ever do anything "crappy?"

  1. OMG!!! yes mine definitely do, I had one that called the cops for a noise complaint at like 10 at night!

  2. You have a lot of patience. I think I would go crazy listening to that all night! At our old house we had an annoying neighbor. Well really a neighbor with an annoying car. His alarm would go off at night for a LOOOONG time. Then it would stop. Then start again. You could tell he was using his clicker thing to stop it then reset it. I wanted to open the window and scream, "HEY! If you know your alarm is messed up why don't you just leave it of?!? Just an idea!" Luckily it stopped when the cops showed up one day. I guess I wasn't the only neighbor who was losing sleep. =)

  3. BOO! That's terrible. I'm not even sure what you can do about it, but I hope it ends ASAP!

  4. I feel your pain. There are a few dogs in my neighborhood who love to bark from sundown to sun up. I'm not sure who they belong to as they are on the next street over( still close enough to hear them)but I would love to get my hands on the owners. It's every night barking.

  5. I love when other people talk about their crappy neighbors. I had a neighbor who was so gossipy and out to get our OTHER neighbors that she stopped me on my WEDDING DAY in my WEDDING DRESS to gossip the second I opened my front door (she lived across the hall) as if she had been STANDING AT HER DOOR waiting for me to come out. She wasn't really a CRAPPY neighbor, she was mostly quiet and so on but every time I left my apartment, I KNEW I was going to get stopped and sometimes I was in a rush and couldn't stand around gossiping about things I didn't care about!

  6. As a dog owner of three very barky dogs, we have them on a strict bark curfew. They are inside between 9 PM and 7 AM. On the rare occasions they run out between those no bark hours, one tiny yip and we are bringing them back in. I would say we are the crappy neighbors in our area, but we've got a guy who collects broken cars and guy with an amateur Mariachi garage band as competition!

  7. Oh my goodness, that's awful! I'm so sorry! I hope they quit eventually!
