We have not one but two neighbors who must absolutely hate us. We are very nice & generous people. We have helped almost every one of our neighbors within our immediate proximity -including one of the two aforementioned-with everything from snow plowing to lending out generators after Hurricane Irene caused much of the northeast to lose power last September. We inherited our disheveled home in an upscale neighborhood from my father-in-law. We’ve been cleaning & clearing out via tag sales, dumpsters and donations. I’m writing this because I got really angry today. Today, we had firewood dropped off by a friend of ours who is in the tree business. He called us afterwards and said that the other neighbor -who we have helped out numerous times- started screaming at him while he was unloading the wood from the truck . My gripe is that neither one has even attempted to talk to us directly about their concerns but has instead decided to take the cowards’ way out by complaining to everyone else. Part of me is so angry and I want to scream at them but then I think that remaining silent would be the better choice.
Boris Knott replies-stay the course. With your good altitude things will work themselves out.
