Open Letter to My Neighbor

the dump nextdoor 002
Dear kooky neighbor,
You've got to know that you're house is falling apart, right? I mean, do you just not care? You're cement porch is crumbling, You're roof was so bad, the roofers felt bad just slapping on a sixth layer of shingles. Roofers don't really feel bad about much...no offense to roofers but they typically do the job and leave without saying much, I heard these guys arguing with you and saw them shaking their heads. Your chimney is about to blow off the house.

You have birds living under your siding, in your AC, in the eaves. You have squirrels living in your attic!
You make a nice living. You don't pay a mortgage. You received an inheritance. Why do you want to live in this eyesore, fire trap?
Sincerely,
Carol who prays the tree between us doesn't ever come down.

Oh dear, this is definitely not a good thing. Maybe you could make a little list of suggested repair resources and give it to him (or her). It may be the prod they need to get on with things and it may help them if they're just plain wacky and totally clueless as to what they should be doing.

Don't you just hate living next to the worst house in the street. I have often lived across the road so that is your view.
My neighbour refuses to water the footpath so there grass? is just weeds that then come into my lawn.
Hard to comprehend isn't it when they have the money to fix it.

I'm thinking that it may be something you can report to your town office. Couldn't hurt.

I think I saw their house in the Audubon newsletter--it's been declared a bird sanctuary.
