Have you ever had a neighbor who is so obnoxious that you wish he/she would move far, far away or wished you could do the same?
For the past two years I've been avoiding "Alan" at all costs but last week I couldn't restrain myself because he was setting off fireworks right in front of Daisy, scaring her in the process, as we walked by his home. I've learned that it's always best not to "make waves" when living in close proximity of neighbors but he had been setting them off for weeks, late at night, while drinking but this time I caught him in the act so after he apologized for scaring Daisy (who tried to pull me with all her might back home) he set off another round of fireworks and that was when I asked him to stop because, after all, it isn't the fourth of July YET. He apologized again and then I marched back home, irritated, hoping that he would really stop once and for all but no such luck and then of course Daisy sat next to me (as pictured above) until the noises stopped for hours until he resumed again in the middle of the night! The cops issued a warning to "Alan" but unfortunately he didn't get the message loud and clear (pun intended)!
Thankfully, Daisy and I will be taking care of our friend's, Rocket and Turbo, at their house tomorrow night so we won't hear triple the noise on the 4th!
I'm sure all of you can relate to this story but I'd love to know if you've encountered the same thing in your neighborhood and what you did about it. Do tell!
