Been trying to catch my neighbor who is avoiding us. I jumped in his a$$ for shooting his pistol in his back yard. He is surrounded by houses on 3 sides and the main road in front. No place for him to shoot safely!
Anyway, I have offered several times now to help him with his trees but he has to cut them up. I told him months ago that when I am able to have it ready and when I can get on Betsy I will move them. He hasnt done it. He sits home all day cuz he watches their daughter and wife works. She teaches special needs children. I was up and down the drive many times this weekend moving trees and branches on mine and part of the mess he has going on and you would think he would have come out and help me get his cleaned up but no. I saw him peeking out the window, we knew he was home. So I bailed him out now several times when he couldnt get out this winter, pushed what trees I could move and never said a word about it. Even when he didnt say thanks. Not the reason I do it.
The only thing that gets under my skin is I told him 2 times now that hey man, dont know if you have noticed but the bear has carried your trash in to the woods, and he always says thanks I havent but will check it out. Do you think he picked that up either? No. So as I drive up and down our drive or am working at the part of the lawn I can see it. So I want to stop and ask him why he cant take 2 mins and pick it up so I dont have to look at it or he gets the bear trained to come to his house to get the garbage cuz he cant seem to keep it in the garage like everyone else around him. We have some really big bears here. Dont need them getting into the trash next door and making a mess that can be avoided.
So am I wrong for saying something, because I have to look at his trash laying in the woods everyday, cuz at 6'5 and 250 he is the laziest guy I know? Except when it comes to surfing the internet all day. He likes to sit on his porch in shorts no shirt and stay there all day. My other neighbor cant stand it. My other neighbor wont have anything to do with him. Wouldn't you think that you would want to stay on your neighbor's good side you would at least pick the trash up, I know he can see it cuz its not that far from his trash can he leaves by the house.
He told me when he moved in he was going to make his house really nice and plant all these flowers and plant some trees the previous owner had to cut down to put in a new septic as part of the agreement.. Good thing they were down because the few that were left snapped off this winter. Which was another thing I moved cause they were laying in the road and shoved out of the way so everyone could get by. At least he said thanks for that and i let him use my driveway til he cut just enough trees to get in and out his own driveway again.
My other course of action is that I go along where he likes to park his truck and block it off with boulders and no trespassing signs because he is on my property. There is a small driveway that used to connect 2 houses together. It was torn out and the gravel left and when they divided everything and put my drive in I got the biggest piece and it runs right thru part of what he thought was his. Til I painted it all out and we walked the line. For all the research he said he did he didnt do a good job. Well I told him he can still use it for now. So again I am doing him a favor by letting him keep parking there. It really shrinks his drive down if i do that. At this point I dont care.
So has anyone else had to deal with someone like this? What did you do? I know they didnt expect living in the woods to be quite like this but they have been here a year now and they researched...
Have a great day!
