Venting about neighbors!

Last night Steve and I took the dogs out and there was on Old Navy bag neatly placed by one of my planters on the porch. I picked it up and looked in it and it had dog poop in it! One of our sweet neighbors took the time to pick up dog poop and place it on our porch. Here is my beef, besides it being totally rude, we have 8 dogs that live in a stones throw from our house. So why would the neighbors take the time to place it on OUR front porch? How do they know it is our dogs? We pick up after our dogs!

We were furious so Steve marched over to the neighbor that lives across from us. She has been nothing but rude to us. She even had the nerve one time to ask me "Who is that strange man staying with you?". Yeah it was my little brother. Apparently he is strange because he has long hair. She totally denied placing the package of love on our front porch. She told Steve "I don't have time to do something like that!".

Am I the only one that thinks this is totally out of line? Steve and I are so laid back we would never think of doing something like that to our neighbors. We never say anything to our neighbor that lives next to us who puts there garbage can in our drive way on garbage day. We never say anything to our neighbors who have there kids bikes in the middle of the walking paths for days. We never say anything to our neighbor who has her kids toys all over her front porch. We never said anything to our neighbor who kicked our dog because he ran up to him to say hi! We never say anything to our neighbor who takes their crying baby out on their front porch at 7am! We basically try to keep the peace.

Too bad my neighbors don't read my blog. If they did I would tell them to grow-up and come say something to our face.

I cannot believe that happened to you guys. Seriously...who does that? The nerve of people. If you need some helpers in doing a little TP job on your neighbors, Ben and I are totally there!
