Seems like this board gets filled with stories about crappy neighbors. This is not one of them.
So on Saturday, an apartment near mine had a small dog in it continually yapping. This is a dog I had never heard before and I certainly didn't know the person who had the yapping dog. Seriously, I heard it continually for over 40 minutes. My building is normally extremely quiet so any little noise will be heard. Although slightly annoying, I did go about my business.
Didn't hear the dog on Sunday, but when I got home after being out most of the day, there was a card stuck in my door. Since it is a secured community, I knew it couldn't be some stupid advertisement. Turns out it was a hand-written card from the neighbor who had the yapping dog. She explained that she was sorry for the noise and she was dog sitting for a co-worker. The co-worker had a family emergency and the dog would not be back. She also explained the dog never barked when she (the neighbor) was in the apartment with the dog so she did not know the dog would bark like it did.
The neighbor and I have never met. She had no idea if I was or was not at home on Saturday. But yet, she took the time to hand write an apology. I simple act of kindness and a sincere apology go along way.
(For those who may have missed it from earlier, I don't know her, don't know what she looks like and I don't have pics.)
Cool neighbor story, bro.
State Farm is there.
1. Buy 6 pack of shitty beer.

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
I have one, too! I recently purchased a home and have not yet moved in permanently. The home was vacant for over a year before I bought it, so the neighbors had been trying to keep up the yard a bit. I got home after work one day last week, and my neighbor had cleaned up the entire front yard (pulled weeds, cleaned up leaves and sticks, etc.). Then Saturday, I noticed him out putting grass seed on a few bare patches. I wonder if he'll mow my lawn this summer, too!!
Here's one for you:
I'd just moved into a nice neighborhood and the neighbor in the house directly behind mine was doing an addition to his garage. He was expanding it out and up for storage and had torn off the roof. The new rafters added height to the garage of about 8 feet. When he came back from work and noticed how massive the garage looked he came over to my place to talk about it.
His garage was only about 3 feet from my property line. He sat down at my kitchen table and said that he didn't realize how massive the thing was looking. He said that it would cost him around $10k to remove the new rafters and replace them with lower ones (without knee walls) if we felt it was too high. But he was willing to do it if we didn't like it.
We told him we appreciated that he was good enough to come over and ask our opinion and we'd get back to him. After he left, my 12 year old son told us that we should let him build it if he gave us the $10k!
Before we could get back to him, he'd taken down the very high rafters and replaced them.
Have to admit, he went way above and beyond the call of duty on that occasion.
Did you show him your bewbs? He may do more than mow your lawn if you play your cards correctly...
I have one too!! There's a house next to me that's been vacant for over a year. I've spent some time there mowing the lawn, etc to help keep the neighborhood up. A month or so ago this vietnamese babe bought the house. I noticed she hasn't had much time with work and all to do much to the yard so last week one day I went over and cleaned up the entire front yard. (pulled weeds, cleaned up leaves and sticks, etc.) Saturday I went over and planted some grass seed in her bare spots.
If I mow her lawn this summer I'm thinking it could lead to anal - What say you tRCMB??
Any pics of neighbor woman?
Oh, he'll "mow your lawn" alright...
next thing you know he'll even want to have sex with her..
Dude. She wants you. Watch her show up with a bacon casserole!
Did he trim your bush as well?
(Sorry. That HAD to be said. Its the RCMB after all!)
one time this message board poster (lets call him Al) bought me some beer. what a cool dude.
only pics i have of Al are on a donkey or eating a cheesebuger.
I've got great neighbors. Last year, when my oldest son was in kingergarden, he got send home one day on the bus when he shouldn't have. So he walks from the bus drop to our house...and no one was home. And the doors were locked. And it was winter. And he's 5 years old. Thank God the neighbors have a older kid that rides the same bus. They noticed our son standing out there looking confused, and took him in and called us.

Damn. Tough boss.

Anyone else think this thread was going to be about State Farm?
I considered it, but then I remembered there's nothing good about State Farm, except that they're good at delaying and/or denying claims. Eff State Farm.
What a mean jerk
Short version: Several years ago, a neighbor let me cut down some branches from a huge tree in his back yard because they were blocking my DirecTV signal.
