Well, the ‘Burbs have been having some funny drama! We’ve had two chicks arguing that resulted in one having to pack up and leave. Rambo is still MIA, but his wife has been busy clearing out the house. Crazy religion lady at the end of the street got a little out of hand and then retreated to her lair.
There were two chicks living one house up from us. They have been having arguments very regularly…shouting, cussing, throwing things, etc. Now, I only heard a few shouts here and there, but they each took turns coming over to my house to fill me in on the latest fights. One lady was always coming over yelling and acting crazy. Anyway, two weekends ago, I noticed the crazy one packing up her car. She just had to stop by here before she left. I was told about a huge fight that led to screaming and throwing glasses. Crazy, crazy, crazy stuff. It’s been quiet since then so I wasn’t too disappointed when I found out that the lady that stayed is buying the house. Maybe it will stay quiet…maybe.
Crazy religion lady up the street decided to blame all the neighborhood kids for her child not having playmates. This woman took it upon herself to talk to the kids and ask them why they weren’t playing outside with her daughter. Really? What mature adult does that? If you have a question about something like that you walk your butt to the neighbors’ houses and talk to the parents. She was politely informed that her child is rude, disrespectful, and mean to all the other children. She basically stomped back into her little lair and hasn’t been heard from.
I still haven’t seen Rambo across the street. I don’t know where he has run off to, but his wife has been “cleaning house” for the past week. Just the other day she and two other guys were literally throwing furniture and stuff out into the yard. They were breaking tables and hitting chairs against trees to bust the legs off of them! They stacked small tables and took turns busting them up. Oh and the wife was laughing hysterically and videoing the whole time! A moving truck showed up this morning but I can’t imagine what they would be loading up. Hell, everything was practically in the yard broken.
Well, there you have it. Just another crazy couple of weeks in the ‘Burbs!
Ok, so I get up this morning to the normal chaotic routine of getting my daughter ready for school. We actually make it out the door on time and as we are walking to the car…I stop dead in my tracks. Our neighborhood Rambo has a “For Rent” sign in his yard! What the hell?!? I feel instantly crappy ’cause the first thing that hits my mind is…I really wanna get a video of this dude doing his Rambo sneak attack before he moves! How horrible is that? Haha!
I shake off the thought and get my daughter in the car and we head to school. On the way home, I get to thinking about Rambo moving and another thought hits me. Ahh hell, who is gonna move in now? Part of me doesn’t want the new neighbors to be normal! I gotta have some entertainment!!!
I haven’t seen the “cram it down your throat religious child” in a few days. I’m guessing she took a little hint after I had to ask her to leave my house. She was attempting to argue with me, from the front porch, and was angry at my daughter for not wanting to go outside to play with her. But then again, the weekend is coming up…so I’m sure she will come out of her dwelling!
I’ll be sure to update during or after the weekend! Have a good weekend everyone!
Ya’ll remember that movie with Tom Hanks? He lived in that crazy neighborhood with all those quirky people. Well, guess where I’m living?!?
When we moved in, things seemed so quiet, calm, and “normal”. The neighbors would all check the mail, put out the trash/recycling, and rake leaves at the same time. Everyone seemed to have normal routines. Weekends were laid back and quiet. The kids would all get together and ride bikes. Yea, that lasted all of about 3 months!
Directly across the street is a quiet couple who seem ordinary at first. But after a while, I’ve noticed they don’t seem to speak very much. She isn’t home most of the time and he just yells at the dogs a lot. And no, I’m not one of those creepy neighbors who spy on everyone…I just keep a watchful eye out! On several occasions I have noticed him creeping around his house at night. And he doesn’t just creep folks! He does this whole “Rambo sneak attack” routine! He sneaks around the corners of his front porch and jumps around the side. Then he tip toes across the front yard to his car and sneaks around it. He has this squat/creepy walk thing he does around the entire car before he sneaks back up to the front porch to peek around the sides again. This isn’t a one time incident either…he does this A LOT! There is NEVER anyone out there. There are no noises or animals to explain why he does this. Makes no sense to me. Just the other night he came out on the porch and began yelling at this three dogs. He then picked up one of the dogs, holding him like a sack of potatoes, and proceeded towards his car. He opened the back door of the car and kind of slung the dog in the back seat. He got in the driver’s seat and started up the car. I see him ranting at the dog and then, after about 30-45 seconds, he shuts off the car and gets the dog out. He puts the dog back on the front porch and just walks in the house. Hmmmm…
Next on the list is the family about 3 houses up from us at the end of the road. Now, when I met them, I thought they were pretty good folks. They came over and met me and my husband. We chatted a little about the neighborhood and where each of us were from. I told them that their daughter was more than welcome to come over anytime to play. Things seemed great. And then, about two months later, they (the parents and the daughter) began quizzing my daughter about religion. I’m not gonna turn this post into a religious debate, but I don’t agree with anyone pushing religion on anyone else. I also don’t think you have to attend church every week to be considered worthy. This little girl began to be very ugly to my daughter because of the attendance issue and her parents have made little comments and sent over church business cards. This little girl is quick to make statements like…”I am a Christian, so I think she ( my daughter) should be able to do her homework outside. I am a Christian, therefore I have responsibilities.” (when asked if she wanted to come inside my house to watch The Fox and the Hound.) Yea, I know you’re thinking…WTF! Made zero sense to me either. She talks back to adults and never takes no for an answer. It is driving me crazy!!!
There’s a couple more crazy folks around here but I’ll save those for later. I’ll keep ya updated on future crazy incidents here in “The ‘Burbs“! Hopefully no one will be digging in their backyard late at night while it’s raining!!! Haha Do you have weird ones in your neighborhood? Share your stories…I’d love to hear about it!
