We live in a very diverse little neighborhood. Most our our neighbors are great...of course there are a few exceptions. On any given day, there is an amazing aroma in the air. Across the street we have a Chinese family, an Indian family and two Latino families. Next door we have a Filipino family. Someone is always cooking a large meal with very potent spices.
Our neigbors to the left are the nicest family, super quiet and always willing to lend a hand. Our neighbors to the right are nice but drive me crazy and always ask us to lend them a hand. They currently have somone living with them who buys piece of junk car after piece of junk car that never works. The cars do leak oil by the bucket. Everytime I pull up, she is sitting in the latest car on her cell phone, smoking a cigarette with a huge box of condoms on the front seat. They don't have a clothes dryer and hang their entire household of clothing all over their backyard and over our fence. Quite often, we will be in our dining room eating with their panties and sexy little undergarments in the background. Even worse is they will leave them there for a few days. There have been several times when I have taken one of the young boys to buy tickets for school events because there isn't a working car at the house. He usually comes over in tears 10 minutes before they stop selling the tickets and I pack up my kids and drive him over.
We also have some families on the next street with roosters that wake me up every single morning at 5am. Our other issues include grown men riding those stupid pocket motorcycles up and down the street over and over. They are so loud. Every hour (day and night) some jerk will go speeding by in his TAHOE (there are a few and they all drive TAHOES and wear their baseball caps backwards) with the music booming. Finally, there is a home on the street behind us with several illegal immigrants. One of the kids plays his music sooooooooo loud it shakes all the windows in our home and invades our peace whether our windows are open or shut. I have gone over and asked them to stop and it usually helps for a few months then starts again.
We are putting our house on the market so some other poor family can spend $700,000 + to live in all this glory. Hopefully our new neighborhood will have some of the great neighbors and a few less of the irritating ones.
