Six on Saturday

Okay here is my weekly 6 on Saturday. Join in at MOMDOT.
“6 things you love or hate about your neighbors.”

1. I HATE how they slam their front door every time they come in and out. I mentioned it once and they were soo apologetic, they really had no idea. We think it's because they leave their sliding door open and the draft slams it harder than they mean for it to. I just deal with it now, but that is something I HATE!

2. I LOVE how considerate they are. Okay, other than the door thing they are quite. They have 4 boys (all probably 15 and younger?) 2 dogs (1 big and 1 small) and cats and a bird. We never really hear ANY of it. You can tell they really try to keep their kids under control, more than any other neighbors around here!

3. I HATE that they smoke. They usually smoke on their patio and if we have our slider open the scent comes right in. To each their own but there were a few days this summer it was crappy to smell it if I wanted the door open.

4. I LOVE the man of the house. He is a maintenance worker in the complex and he knows my grandpa and mom and is really nice. He looks out for us all. For example, his neighbor (on his side) is an older woman and the kids above her were playing music really loud. He went and complained to them for her and asked them to keep it down. 5 minutes later they got loud again and it was the middle of the night, like 2am. So he went and cut off their power for about 5 minutes on the breaker box and then turned it back on. They weren't loud again. lol AND he is going to load up our porch with free firewood from his parents so we can keep a fire going in the winter for the baby. See... nice guy huh?

5. I HATE that our OTHER neighbor (the kids that live above the old woman mentioned above). They our on our side wall and we sometimes hear their weird loud music late at night too. They also don't pay for parking but they use 2, not 1, but 2, covered parking spots. It's only 15 bucks a month just pay like everyone else. It pisses me off, I feel like such a parking nazi, but we are all pinching pennies around here and they just get away with cheating. Stupid!

I love your story for #4. What a wonderful man he is and what a great idea of cutting the power, that is just too funny.
