Front window broken, beer bottles everywhere. no we didn't phone the police, All of us neighbours have complained about this kid, we thought this time she'd have to do something. well about 20 kids and young adults just left her house, some carrying some of her belongings, some just hooting and hollering Party tonight. One of these darling is her 13 year old son. as they head to the crack house down the street. She knows he's hanging around these people in their early 20's. but she does absolutely nothing, She is at work , I know even if I phoned her she'd do nothing.
Are you sure you don't live in MY neighborhood
Ugh. A year ago the neighbors from heck moved in with their DARLING (NOT!)
children. Both are out of control. The parents do NOTHING.
And now dad's been kicked out and the sister-in-law has moved in with 2 MORE out of control children (sigh). And a dog that seems to think MY yard is it's yard, and has tried to bite dh, bit dd, and (the kids say) went after Sneaky Pie. On MY property. I didn't see anything on her- so I don't think it did anything.
Ugh. On the one hand- I kind of want these kids in my backyard (with the garage door closed- the kids help themselves to anything they want). At least they're being supervised by ADULTS that care. But on the other hand, they drive me bonkers if they're here for an extended period of time.
It just makes me wonder sometimes why people like that can have as many kids as they want, and then there are aboslutly wonderful people who would make great parents- but can't because of infertility.
