Our Neighbor (Make That Ex Neighbor) Is At It Again

Remember this?

Well, she's at it again. I had a call from the new owner of our house yesterday. She just wanted to tell me that a bill for us had arrived (even though we had a forwarding address at the PO) and that she would be mailing it to us. I asked her how things were going and if there had been any problems.

So, she proceeds to tell me that they found a note on their door one day signed "Your Neighbor". She read it to me and I knew immediately who had sent it. She said she knew it wasn't the neighbors on either side. I told her it was the gal across the street and she said that's what she had figured. The note, nicely written but you could read the sarcasm dripping from it, said that even though everyone in the neighborhood had dogs and cats it was too bad that their dog stood in the open window all day and barked. Ok, we put up with years of barking dogs next door (both sides) and down the street so I do understand the annoyance. BUT--as Emily said, if the woman would have come over and knocked on their door, introduced herself and mentioned their barking dog, it would have been different. But to leave a note on your door and don't even have the courtesy to sign it!!!

I'm sooooo glad that I don't have to put up with that woman anymore!

Too bad she took the wrong they'll have to let the dog bark just to annoy her. I'm such an anti-neighbor kind of person who is easily annoyed. I have 2 acres and one neighbor and it is too much! I need a house in the middle of 40 acres! lol So glad you don't have to deal with her anymore. Hopefully, your Sanibel neighbors are nice.

She sounds like a real piece of work. I hope the happy new owner of your old home continues to do her thing and not let that pesky neighbor cause any problems. Maybe she has a car or two she can park on the street, too... That ought to take her mind off the dog!!!
