I'm really just a big chicken I hate confrontation and I'm afraid that this would end nasty. I do plan on talking to the property manager about it, but he's been in the hospital lately and I don't think this is something he needs to deal with.
As for the hose issue, it's more annoying than anything else. I do like this neighbor, she's just kind of clueless. I still have to shake my head about her just hooking her hose up to my house. This property is sort of like an old motor court rather than a regular suburban street, but I have to wonder if she'd do the same thing in any situation.
I guess I just don't know what to do in these situations because I'm so bewildered that people behave this way.
All of the little issues aside, I do love where I live. The pros FAR outweigh the cons. The last place I lived was a huge gated community and the last downstairs neighbors I had would throw big parties, complete with a puke bucket on their front porch. Anything would be an improvement after that!
