Neighbors from H-E-L-L

I'm sure everyone can relate to having experienced annoying neighbors at some point in their life. I just thought that when I owned a home that I wouldn't really have to deal with it anymore. I was sorely mistaken.

My husband and I bought our townhouse three years ago, and at first everything was fine. It was a quiet condominium community with people really caring about the property, and for the most part it still is, except for a few select people. The way we are set up is that our townhouse is on the 2nd and 3rd floors, so we have another condo unit below us. It is currently being rented out by some very loud and disrespectful people. We constantly hear them yelling and banging shit around through the floor of our downstairs. I am not even sure who actually lives there and who doesn't. People are coming and going all the time I can't keep them straight. They can't even walk from their van to their house without screaming and hollering. Seriously, if I can hear your entire conversation, clear as day, from the inside of my house, you're being to effing loud!

The worst part is they're ruining the property. They broke two of their front bay windows one night in November! Helllooo, it is now March for heaven's sake! And they weren't broken because someone tried to break in or anything. They were being roudy and fighting and poof! window broken. I can only imagine what the inside of the place looks like. I finally called the association and reported it the other week. Some of my other neighbors who actually care about the state of their property have complained as well. And today when we came home from work I noticed the windows were finally fixed. It only took four months.

Now, I don't have anything against renters, but it really pisses me off when people act like they don't give a shit. Some of us own our home and have an investment in the community, so it is important to us for the property to be maintained and not trashed. Seriously, do I need to explain to people that taping up two broken windows for four months is trashy? This isn't "suitcase city" it is Carrollwood. We don't roll like that here.

I am going to make it my personal mission to get them evicted. Not only are they damaging their unit, but they have started destroying communal property. Nothing pisses me off more than vandalism. They have messed with the wrong modern housewife. Stay tuned...

  1. I'm with you! Our renting neighbors across the street have recently put a toilet in the front yard (he is a plumber, so I don't know if it is just an "extra" or what, I'm trying not to think about that part) it is just sitting there, as if it is a shelf. Ok, I can deal with the pink house a few doors down. I can even deal with the trashy cars parked in the yard across the street... but call me snobby I just can't handle a toilet in the front yard! I mean SERIOUSLY??????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm calling the city!!!!
