Thats the good thing about NZ is its no longer common for you to know or even talk to your neighbours, even in apartment blocks.
Except my aunties neighbour is one of the weird ones. I parked my car up a shared driveway, right up close to the fence, with enough space for a truck to get past and the next morning (it was christmas so stayed the night) and the neighbour complained he had difficulty getting past
. I really wanted to say "well you are very old and if you can't pass a car with that much space, then you shouldn't be driving." Thats the only neighbour problem I have encountered
Well the gossip going around about me was true but the thing is not a soul knew other than me and the wife and we weren't telling anyone until just 2 weeks before departure, (needed to give 2 weeks notice) and since we had only discussed it only 1 hour before work that day, in a way, technically it was a lie. I think, I mean I don't know how it works when gossip is going around which is true but there was no possible way anyone could know.
I wish I didn't know mine sometimes. It's only been two months since we moved here and well, they are really nasty old biddys. The one that won't let us drive on his grass, I can see because he takes care of his grass, but the other side, well he's a nosey old bird with nothing better to do then start trouble seems like. Problem is, I know his son and don't want hard feelings with him so I grit my teeth and let it be. Seems like my palace on the hill is turning out to be not so great when it comes to the neighbors. Oh well, I don't have to like them, just have to live with them right? If they don't like me, then so be it. I have enough friends and won't be hurt if they don't like me. I bought this house, it's mine and I can do what I want to it when I want so nah!
Shoot when we moved here, they knew things about us before we moved in.
Except that they got the facts wrong(imagine that!). they thought we had 6 kids and when they asked me where my kids were, I was stunned and told them I had 5 cats and NO kids. Their turns to be shocked. Of course they HAD to be sure they were indoor cats only. Because of all the wildlife etc. I assured them that no matter what, my cats are vaccinated, licensed, and indoors only and always will be. That seemed to make them a little happier.
It's funny how gossip gets around so fast isn't it? But I look at it this way, at least someone is thinking about me, may not be in a nice or truthful way but they are thinking about me. Makes me all warm and fuzzy inside! LOL!
