A very good friends of mine told me a horror story about his neighbors and I
thought this might spark a few cathartic conversations.
The neighbors, who actually have 2 very bad situations, are chronic pot
smokers but at the same time keep a good yard and clean outward appearance.
Anyway my friend was talking to them and the neighbor lady mentioned how she
discovered a local ivy growing inside her house. It turns out the siding on
her house had rotted away and the ivy had grown THROUGH the walls and joined
the other plants she maintained in the living room. It's been about 3
months, they still haven't fixed it yet.
I've seen this house, it doesn't look like a crack house or in terrible
disrepair. It looks just like any other house, so I'm amazed something like
this could happen.
The other bad story relates to some windows they bought. Appearently they
got some sort of coated replacement windows and the people who installed
them installed the windows backwards - so the coating was inside instead of
outside (or vice versa, honestly I'm not sure I understand what he meant by
that). How can you install windows backwards, I didn't think they were
symmetrical like that. Anyway I guess the neighbors are just going to leave
them like that. Too much trouble to replace them.
