Our elderly neighbor is becoming a little troublesome. You know she’s the one I call my stalker right? ’cause she watches everything I do – even peeking at me through the window when I’m sitting in the dining room on the computer. Uh huh.
Well, I guess with this heat wave it’s been hard on the cities electricity supply. So almost every day over this past week the power goes out for a minute or two once or twice a day. It’s a pain in the butt, especially if you have to reset any clocks.
We’ve been asking Sofie’s family to get her new clocks with batteries in them so that when the power goes out it doesn’t disturb the clock. Finally after two months of requesting this they fixed one clock. The oldest clock who’s minute button doesn’t even work half the time wasn’t replaced or fixed though.
Now the whole problem with this is that whenever the power goes out Sofie comes and bangs on our windows – not our doors, our windows usually scaring me half to death, and asks us to fix her “watch”. uh huh – you mean your clock. You should know that word by now Sofie.
The only thing is – she doesn’t ask us to fix the clock when the power goes out at nine in the morning. She waits until it’s 10 at night before she wanders over to our house in the dark! Grrrr. I wish her family would just listen to us and fix this for us and her.
On our last trip to her house we noticed that one of her light fixtures is starting to come out of the ceiling. So now she need to replace a light fixture. We are not doing that! Her family is going to finally have to do something for her.
Sofie almost might as well live with us since she’s here so often. Her family says they’ve offered to have her live with them, but she refuses. Maybe she knows she’ll be just as neglected in their home as she is by them in her own home.
Do you have a neighbor that frustrates you to no end?
