What to do with my nosey neighbors? I've told them repeatedly over the past several years that I do NOT enjoy spending alot of time with people and that I don't like them in my business. I don't need the dude going through my trash and taking it to the curb. I don't need either one of them inviting themselves over just because they know I'm home. I've told them I am a loner and need my space, they think I'm "joking". Unfortunately, we go to the same church and so they toss Bible verses at me trying to show me that I obviously have a "problem" and that it CAN'T possibly be them. If they think I'm getting really mad, then they suggest we "pray" together and then they'll say a prayer that totally makes me feel either "guilty" or "bad" for not wanting to be around them.
They refuse to put up curtains even when I offered to buy them. They took down their fence so they could have a better "view" ---they said it's because good neighbors don't need a fence. I say good fences make good neighbors.
So today is July 3 and you know how I'm spending it? Inside the house on FC because those neighbors have their lawnchairs, grill and food all spread out in the "combined yard" that we have now and I can't even put the dogs out for their "potty break" without them right there in their "space"... I wish I had some kind of high-energetic big dog that would run outside, knock them & their food all over and teach them a lesson. (Then I feel bad for having those "wicked" thoughts...kind of.
They don't have "mental issues", the police have been called on them multiple times by other neighbors...the police can't/didn't really do much except "warn" and talk to them. They run the neighborhood "watch" and so they think it's ok to spy on neighbors with binoculars as long as they do it from inside their home.
I really do not want to move...so I'm praying that they do!
