WTH is wrong with people. My parents have gotten 2 new neighbors in the last few years. Before that my parents, both 78, were the young ones on the lane(half mile dirt road that dead ends at the farm). They moved in on the day I was born 46 years ago. Never had a problem. The only time the cops were ever on that road, was when my best friend was patrolling out there and would stop at my mom's for a home cooked meal. Now the cops are out there AT LEAST once a month. Last week a bunch of cops in full gear with assualt rifles went running through my parents yard while we were on the front porch. Today my dad was picking empty beer cans outta the yard that someone tossed out their window. Guessing it was the trash that lives down the road or their friends. The frequent fliers with the police. They drive by flip off my parents, yell obscenities at the neighbor across the road(she's almost 90 and her husband just had a stroke). All because they asked them to shut their windows if they're gonna scream at each other all night. It was a neighborhood where the crickets were the loudest thing around. Now there's drunks doin 50 down a dirt road yelling at people.
The constable stopped at my parents and the neighbors to tell them that the drunk at the end of the road reported them for cutting her fence and letting her horses out. He told her maybe the tree laying across the broken fence was the culprit.
It just sucks that my parents have lived out there for damn near 50 years in peace and quiet. Now they've gotta deal with this crap.
The other neighbor is a 40yo women that decided she wanted to live in the country. She's got a 2 wheel drive car that my dad's has to pull out at least 3 times a winter. She has no mower, so my dad has to cut her grass. He's very particular about his yard, cuts it three times a week. So she lets hers go because she knows it drives him nuts and he'll cut it because it makes his lawn look bad. She's a nice lady but very ill prepared for living in the middle of nowhere.
So all in all, in the last few years, my parents have gone from a place where everyone helps everyone, sits on each other's porches and talks about farming and yard work in the evenings. To living in a place where they don't even want to go in the front yard.. makes me sick but as I was told today. I gotta keep my nose out of it or I'll be the one that ends up in jail.
Thanks for letting me vent..
