The neighbors in the house next door showed up this afternoon to renovate their house. This is the house on the other side of us that`s been unoccupied for over a year.
I don`t understand why our neighbors only show up to renovate sporadically. For example they didn’t show up all week or even last weekend, and then today then arrived at about 3:30 pm with a few relatives and started banging away.
My husband and I went out in the late afternoon and when we came home it was after 8 pm and there was a huge van squeezed into our shared driveway. It was so big it was hanging out over the sidewalk. I hate it when they do that because people passing by can`t walk on the sidewalk and there are a lot of people going by with strollers, carriages and even handicapped people so it`s not fair to block the sidewalk. Plus I`m pretty sure that if the police came around they`d get a pretty hefty fine, but of course they`d probably come to our door first thinking it was our vehicle. GRRRRR.
Then .. just a little while ago they started using a hammer drill or some other kind of loud drill. It shook our house. Bad enough for us … but their house is a semi-detached too and their closest neighbor (ie their semi-detached partner) is an elderly lady! Poor Helen is about 85 years old and I`m sure she doesn’t need to hear that kind of noise. It probably made her think her seniors life insurance was running out! LOL
I can`t believe how inconsiderate they`re being. I wanted to go and talk to them – about the noise and the van in the driveway but my husband doesn’t want us to have anything to do with them. He figures they`ll get a ticket for parking the van that way at some point and that the elderly ladies son will eventually speak up for her. Her son is a wimp so I don`t know about that …
Anyway I`m kind of sick of inconsiderate people.
