Grammar police are really bewildered why people say "WHOM" when it
should be "WHO"....responded to you. If you say it aloud, it sounds
totally weird. So why use it in writing? Supposed to be more
We have suffered for years with a good neighbor as far as character and
however he has tons of old junk on hos property. Two neighbors did move
away because of it.
For thirty years we have tried but no one will buy because of it.
That would be the only financial way we could afford to.
Tried to get help from City several times. But it is good ole boy stuff
and he is related to most everybody. he is just exercising his property
We get along and welcome talking with him. He has made several
deliberate insults or call it what you may like this last one. He parked
a trailer with an old ambulance body on it across from our Living room
window and entry door. It is bait to get me to say something.
We keep the blinds closed and try to make the most of it. I seldom go
out into the yard because it has become so grating.
It tears at my soul to be baited like this and at the same time he seems
It has caused us a lot of economic hardship and contributed to both of
our health problems.
If I say anything it will just make us look like villains or something.
There is no way out for us.
We are stuck here but with good neighbors.
We have suffered enough. I guess we will figure a way to just buy
something else and live there as best we can and maintain this place at
the same time.
Our place has deteriorated over time because we weren't able to sell a
the times we should have and health is gone now.
'm not sure who's winning in this game this guy or... It certainly isn't us.
What really sucks is knowing that he is perhaps not really friendly and
is just waiting for me to blow my lid about the abuse which won't do
Is he dealing drugs out of the house?
Does he have loud drunken parties with tweakers and bikers?
Does he have a wood burning stove that fills your house with smoke all
Does he have people living in a trailer who dump their bodily waste on your
Has he threatened you?
No? Then MYOB. Seriously. If you want to live in a pristine neighborhood
where people stick their nose up your business go somewhere with a HOA.
As it is, you've got a harmless guy with some junk. As far as neighbors go,
that's pretty far down on the "bad neighbor" list.
Check yourself, and count your blessings.
You're full of s---. This is R1 He was not grandfathered as agricultural
but all of a sudden some years ago it was. Agricultural doesn't mean
junkyards in front, of your house. It was pristine when we moved here.
Everyone is unhappy with it but just goes along.
Rest assured if we tried something like that we would have all kinds of
Perhaps you would likea junkyard across from your front door or more
than likely you live in one.
Judging by the tone of your reply it simple to understand you have a
You just don't step on your neighbors. You don't cause neighbors
financial harm. You don't turn the neighborhood into a dump.
I don't know why I even replied to such an attitude.
In every neighborhood there is a neighnorhood police man. When I had 30
ft. 5th wheel camping trailer and Ford Super cab truck, a guy next
door over behind one day came over knocking my door. When I open the
door it was him, asking me to pay him 700 bucks to plant trees in his
back yard to block he ugly view of my rig. I just slammed the door to
his face without a word. He moved away soon after. My rig is long gone
Don't know why you chose to chime in with apples when talking oranges.
I won't speculate about motives beyond what observed.
Several neighbors have RV's and boats. They don't have a junk yards.
I won't mistreat him or anything. Matter of fact we may invite him to
It's hard to deal with these situations without causing hard feelings etc.
So far two moved away because of it, some time ago.
We continue to keep our blinds closed and grin and bear it. I wonder if
you would have such forbearance.
the harms mentioned are real. It's fine as long as we have to tolerate.
It is not fine when you have to.
What is right for one is right for everyone else. I am not permitted to
and have no desire to cause such problems.
Here, in southern Ky we do things different.
Abner, get real. If you couldn't sell your house in 30 years, you were
asking too much for it. Plain and simple. Up until the last 8 years,
there was a housing boom. Even if you took a loss, it would be gained
back in 30 years. I ain't buyin' your BS.
Also, why would anybody stay there if it is that bad and causing you
and your wife health problems?
You are so full of shit, I can smell you from the other NG's.

A neighbor of mine complained in early april I hadnt cleaned up all
the leaves left over from fall. It was early april and had snowed the
So that year my back yard got cut the first time for the 4th of july.
She never complained about anything again:)
God rest Kays sole, she wasnt a bad person but she was in everyones
Everything I've read here, just about, you don't have any rights. Let
him pile his junk on your side even. Buy earplugs. Plant a huge windbreak.
Sell, if you can now. apparently trash have all the rights.
He has the same rights as you do. If his exercise of his rights offends
you, there are numerous things you can do...
1. Ignore it
2. Block it
3. As him to move it
4. Call the zoning depertment. Frankly, I'd think they'd ROFLAO over that
"mess". If you think that is a mess you have led a sheltered life.
I've read all the responses so far and here are the facts as told by
He helped the neighbor build a deck at his own expense and was never
invited to the party.
Right there, there is an animosity that cannot be resolved.
Looking at the photo the OP provided, it seems there is a little debris
piled in the back of the house. I've seen worse.
It looks like the OP is the only one seeing the debris. Others might
have the sight blocked by the OP's house.
Some neighbor moved away because the offender did not mow the lawn. Not
ever? The back yard looks as mown as the OPs.
Maybe the neighbor moved away because of the OP's compulsive obsessive
Looking at all the above, my solution would be for the OP to move, or
maybe break into the neighbor's house in the middle of the night and
kill the whole family.
That would render the house vacant, and probably the OP's house as well.
