I’ve lived in my home for 15 years, but I’ve just about had it with the idiots who live in this neighborhood.
We’re in a zoned rural residential area, but these people think it should look like a Real Housewives of New Jersey neighborhood. This didn’t lead to any conflicts with them until two years ago.
My husband promised my kids chickens, so two years ago, we got them.
Our yard is an acre, so the chickens are well in the back of our property.
Some snotty woman, who’s hardly said a word to us in the whole 15 years, decided that we’re the Beverly Hillbillies who are hell-bent on ruining her lifestyle. We can’t see her house from ours, and I know that she can’t hear the roosters crow in the morning (*I* can’t).
Last fall, my daughter caught this woman taking pictures of our backyard. Not even a week later (which neither my husband or I knew long after it happened; no one was home at the time), Code enforcement showed up. We found out from one of our other neighbors, who we’re friendly with, and who actually likes the chickens.
Since rural residential in our area means you *can* have livestock on an acre or more, this woman was SOL.
Sometimes I wish these people would pack up and move to that perfect Real Housewives neighborhood, with invented problems. Then they can all curse each other out and leave me alone.
