I think my neighbor is trying to make up for the yard incident!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Some of you will remember a couple weeks ago my neighbor got her car stuck in my yard and made some ruts and muddy spots... Well this afternoon I heard a rumbling rolling noise outside and I peeked out; she was bringing her trash can in from the road. Next thing I know, I hear it again. So I peaked out again....she was bringing our trashcan up to our house for us too!

So I guess she's trying to help make up for the whole yard incident or something! When DH got home he asked if I had done it (trash duty is one of his responsibilities most of the time, or nearly all the time!) and I told him she had. She's still never said anything to us about the yard, but I appreciate the gesture.

That was nice of her to do I didn't get to rest "the rest of the story" - how did she get the car out and is she gonna do anything about the ruts in the spring?

That's something my neighbours do every week with mine, and if i'm home before them i'll take theirs back down.

Being neighbourly like that no matter how small it is means a lot. My driveway is quite long so i told my neighbour if he wanted he could park his small trailer at the bottom of it because he had no room, so because of that he's told me that he cleans his gutters and washes the conservatory roof once a year so he'll do mine as well

I would thank her next time you see her and that'll break the ice between you and show that you've let bygones be bygones

Did I miss something? I didn't see what happened?

I hope someone finds a link to the thread because it's one of those funny/not funny things that you laugh about but post about how frustrating it would be it if happened to you.

I'm glad she's trying to make up for it.

Thank goodness for neighbors!! A couple of weeks ago a part broke on our snowblower and our neighbor welded it back on. Neil snowblowed his driveway (which is much larger than ours).

Thats a sweet gesture your neighbor did for you We do that with our neighbors too - if they need anything or we need anything. We can ask each other

Well I didn't notice it when I came home, but DH said they put up fences along the back sides of our houses so no one can do anything like that anymore! A good number of the neighbors down my side of the street would park at the back of their homes. Now they can't do that either I guess!

They filled in the ruts as best as they could. The park is supposed to take care of replanting my grass. Unless she does. I dunno.

Sounds like things turned out for the better. It will be a great deal better after spring thaw, right?

I do appreciate the step she's taken in mending the situation. I mean I was upset at first over it, but I didn't have a grudge against her. Like I said in my OP, she's been a good neighbor in all other ways. I know she's from a different country, I wonder if that's made her reluctant to speak to us face to face? Maybe she's not as comfortable in her English or something like that, which I could understand completely!
