#NeighborFail

A couple moved in next door a few months ago. In that time, we've brought them welcoming bread, wine and cookies. I've brought their trash cans up while they've been out of town. I've driven the wife five miles from home to catch the Airporter bus. I've referred them to an excellent kennel. We've loaned them our extension ladder several times. I've given up my personal information so the husband/spy can use me as a reference for the re-upping of his security clearance.

All that, and in return you have...? Let me see, there was the time you...? Wait, I'm sure you...?

All that, you and can't buy a f$%kin' box of $4 Girl Scout cookies when Daughter comes by to sell them?


[As for the use of an obscenity? You know, I use them all the time in real life. I'm done pretending I'm more restrained here.]

At some point, I feel like your daughter is going to need to learn the life skill called TP-ing.

She could use the neighbors' house as a "practice space.'

Love Jocelyn's comment. :) The neighbors suck. Also? I had no idea what that was a picture of until I got to the end of the post, and they're one of my favorites. Intruiging.

It's Girl Scout cookie time. Tearing apart neighborhoods across the country :). We had to give our troop a warning not to go to other neighborhoods because they would get reported. Girl Scout cookies are really cut throat.

Seriously? This is ridiculous. Time to draw the boundaries. Uck.

I have nothing new to add. I just added a picture to my profile and wanted to see what it looked like in a comment. That is all. :)

That's just wrong. You should buy a box for them and take it over and leave it on their door step. That's the neighborly thing to do. ;)
