08:24 pm - Letter from a neighbor
This is the text from a hand-written letter gf and I received from our next-door neighbor, a ~75 year old woman who we see carefully and constantly tending her roses. It is so filled with suburban expectations that it's funny. Of course, we do live in the suburbs, so I guess this is the sort of thing we should expect.
Neighbor-there is room for 2 cars in front of your home therefore I do not under- stand why your auto is in front of my home as much as it is. the after- noon sun creates a glare that makes it difficult for me to sit in my front room without putting the blinds down. Please Keep your Auto in front of your own home. thank you [neighbor's name]
What our neighbor does not say and apparently has not noticed is that there has been major construction going on on a house across the street for the past few months. The construction workers frequently park both their personal vehicles and large construction-related equipment in front of our house, giving us little alternative but parking in front of her house.
I hope you all have less picky neighbors.
