Yep, gotta play by the rules! (I just got a short lesson in that, lol) Anyway the rules aren’t that hard to follow, however I just feel like what goes on in my yard/ house is my business. I don’t stick my head in your yard you don’t stick your head in mine.
There is only one neighbor that can see the side of my shed with the AC and vent coming out and I haven’t met them. The people that owned the house before them were Arse wipes extreme! To the point that I let the back one third of my yard get overgrown after i planted 6 pine trees to block them out. Now they are gone and the new folks seem nice. I am going to clean up the rest of the backyard and put up a new fence. Picket on the side with no house and stockade down the side where there is.
Funny story. About 20 years ago, I look out my side door and there are two ladies walking by. In my yard. So I stick my head out the back window as they are walking past the back of my house and into my back yard and i said excuse me can I help you. They noth turned around and looked at me dumfounded. I said this is my yard, what are you Doing? The lady says oh we’ve been cutting through here forever. I said have you seen my dog? She says no. I said we’ve been here 5 years and usually my dog is outside and he bites. I’d stay out of there if I were you.
My yard was totally fenced in and they must have been climbing over my fence? I dunno. If it was kids I could understand it. lol
Oh and I really feel the same way. I’m way over quota on friends and I don’t really want anymore. I am friendly with my neighbors, but I don’t stick my nose in their business.
