You might be a redneck

I'm so frustrated right now! I used to have really good neighbors but then they moved. The house on the north side of me is a rental so I never know who's going to live there and the people who are there now are white trash from hell!

Now before you go thinking I'm being too judgemental you should know, I am from the wrong side of the tracks. In my family our rich relatives live in the double wide, so I recognize my own. Having said that, these people are pissing me off!

It's just little things but they are starting to add up. First there are about eight adults and multiple children living in this tiny little house, not my business, I couldn't care less who lives together. The thing that is annoying is all the vehicles taking up the street. They have so many cars that when people come to my house they have to park around the corner.

Which brings up another issue, trash cans, there is no where to put the trash cans on trash day except at the end of the driveway. Each house has a trash can, a recycling can and a green waste can. If the trash is not sorted correctly the trucks will not pick it up. The neighbors use my trash cans, I don't care about that, as long as they put the right thing in the right can, no skin off my nose if their cans are full and mine aren't. However, I've gone out to take my trash out and found my cans full of their kids broken toys. I tossed them back over the fence into their yard. I have a strip of gravel between my driveway and the fence, that's where I put my trash cans, but not anymore.

I forgot to put the trash out Monday night so Tuesday morning before work I went to take the cans to the curb. When I opened my garage door my driveway was full of trash. The neighbors were tossing their trash over the fence into my trash cans and some of the bags wound up in my driveway and split open. So at six o'clock in the morning I was picking up the neighbors trash. They also filled my recycling bin with their trash and also my green waste can, which I haven't even used because they only pick those up from April to October.

So now I have to put the trash cans in my garage, that should smell wonderful when it warms up. Also, these people are killing my property value. They recently built an enclosed room on their deck for smoking. This is the picture of that room.

As if the outhouse with the satellite dish in the backyard wasn't bad enough.

  1. if they're renting find out the owner and let them know you are going to complain to the city. the owner will get fined if they dont fix the problems so they usually do it.

  2. Hi sweetie. Long time no hear! Your neighbors sound like mine. Remember the aliens? Well now the sister has moved in instead and she is a single mom, living with a guy who keeps breaking it off, then Friday night parties that usually end up in a fight of some sort. Maybe we should live next to each other! At least it would be fun and clean!!

  3. You definitely need to complain to the owner. And if they won't do anything - call the city. And if you have to, the police. Because they are littering and destroying your property.

  4. Oh, that is so horrible for you! I own quite a few rental properties and the first thing I tell people is respect your neighbor and that is the main rule.

    I hate to see things like that! So sorry for you...
