We are moving to a new house… yes we finally found a house to buy. I have not talked about the process much on here because sometimes talking about it makes it just linger in my mind instead of being free of it.
Ok, so we went to the house for the home inspection and the neighbor was home and one of us parked in front of his front yard and went inside the house. A few moments later, we look out the window to find that the neighbor had parked very close on either side of our car with both of his cars so as to keep us from being able to get out.
D went out and he immediately said that it was very rude of us to park in front of his yard… it is a public road… and we were blocking the way of the post man to bring the mail… now that he had moved his cars HE was in front of the mailbox now and blocking the entrance to it…and he said that it was quite rude of us to park there. There were many people at the house for the home inspection. There are not many places to park other than being in front of his front yard. D said “I’m very sorry sir, but if you would kindly move your cars, I will move mine out of the way… oh and by the way, nice to meet you, I am moving in next door!”
We have joked about buying pink flamingos or something even more obnoxious and putting right on the line of our properties facing him but I know that will really put us at odds.
Just wait until he finds out we are a same sex couple and we are planning on having lots of parties there, and there will be lots of cars!! I’m planning on making him a batch of cookies when we move in to try to smooth out the edges but I don’t know if that grumpy old man will be even get a little less grumpy with cookies!
