A few weeks ago, a new neighbor arrived 2 houses away from mine. The previous neighbor was a quiet one. They mind their own business and we mind our own. They are in pasar malam business, selling plastic ware. They have been there for as long as I could remember. We even took the bus together once to town and engaged in a small talk. The girl I spoke to is now married with children.
When the new neighbor came, we were rather restless. They did their renovation till after 12 am! It’s really crazy to be hearing drilling sounds at 1 am! And it was a working day the next day! The next morning, our immediate neighbor complained about the noise. It didn’t affect us much because we were 2 houses away but the neighbor who is sandwiched between the new neighbor and my house was affected. So, my mom told the neighbor to call the police the next time they ever do drilling in the middle of the night again.
We were lucky that the drilling stopped. I am not too sure if the old neighbor threatened them to call the police. The new neighbor’s children have cars fitted with big exhaust pipes! In the middle of the night, you could hear them stepping on gas even if they are just moving their cars to park at the opposite side of the road. It’s really crazy. We kinda miss the old neighbor even we didn’t talk much to them. At least, they are not nuisance!
As we go along, I thought that these neighbors would be a future headache. We didn’t get along well on the first impression. Somehow, last night’s meeting sort of put our worries at ease. My aunt went to request the broken bricks from their renovation to be placed in our garden, but the neighbor offered us new bricks instead.
We engaged in small talks and eventually found out about them more. The new neighbor is a contractor and he bought the house because his wife wanted to move into this neighborhood. We also found out about the neighbor living next to this new neighbor. Apparently, they are inconsiderate lot. They are very rude and territorial. If you just park in front of their house to unload things from your car, they would come out and immediately shoo you away. They can’t even give and take.
Our old neighbor was very worried that we might ended getting a terrible neighbor but somehow, I think the new neighbor is okay. If only we take some time to get to know them, perhaps, we could work things out.
Having said this, remember the neighbor who let the air out of my bro-in-law’s car because we park behind their house? Well, my colleague who happened to stay opposite my house also faced the same problem with his neighbor. His neighbor is even worse. Your car cannot pass the line between your house and theirs. They would scratch your car or let the air out of your car tyres. Since they don’t let you park one cm into their house, my colleague park his car opposite his own house. Guess what? The neighbor came out and scold them because – they planted two trees in front of their houses and claimed that the spot belongs to them as well!!
Why are they so abusive? This entire neighborhood does not belong to them only! Apparently, I heard the wife is the abusive one because her husband is an inspector. Inspector so what? Inspector my ass! Please remember your husband’s salary is being paid by us – the tax payors. So bloody inconsiderate! Anyway, I advise my colleague to give into the demands of this psycho bitch because it’s not worth it to be arguing with an animal. They don’t understand human language anyway!
I was secretly hoping that our vandals neighbor would be neighbors with the inspector’s psycho bitch so that we all can have some dramas everyday! I guess that is why you have news of neighbors killing each other. It’s because of this stupid territorial pissing attitude. Is it very hard to take some time to talk things out and resolve things rather than resorting to such cowardice act?
