Neighbors!

  1. From the sweet little old lady down the street who always gives you a card for your birthday to the scary man with the shotgun waiting to shoot you the second you accidentally touch his grass, neighbors come in all sorts!

    Which do you get along best with, and which worry, or scare you? No matter what, they spice up the area a bit, don't they? Or are you "that neighbor"?

    The neighbor just a few doors down from us is an absolute oddity here. He's had an entire flock of cop cars here once and that's because at night, he walks around in nothing but a thong and boy does he have a wide variety. I've ever seen him in a tutu once. Unfortunately for the highly distressed and very "proper" Filipino neighbors, he only got a warning and he's now just a little more selective about when he wears his thing and when he wears Daisy Duke cut shorts.
     
  2. My neighbors have changed several times over since the recession started. Between renters, foreclosures, and property abandonment, I've had six different tenants in the house next to mine alone. It's currently been abandoned since March.

    Of the neighbors I do know, however, the ones next door (on the other side) and three houses up the street from me are the ones I get along with well. Then again, I've known them since I was a kid.

    A real oddity I saw happened about six years ago. A kid (age 16ish or so) in his underwear went outside and threw a fit at his mother about something. The yelling was loud, yet unintelligible.
     
  3. I was CERTAIN that one of my neighbors was a drug dealer. Because I Took a walk to clear my head, LATE one night and I saw a black corvette pull up to the guy's house, The neighbor gave the guy a brown paper bag, and the guy gave him a WAD of cash. I remember running and weaving through alleyways, just in case they didn't want a witness.

    One of my neighbors is a BIG time dude in the Oil companies. So if you hate the oil company, I have a name to hate.

    Then we got the neighbors with the THREE GOLDEN RETRIEVERS. WHO ARE NEVER ON LEASHES. I mean, Jesus. NOT TOO HARD TO SLIP THEM ONTO THE COLLARS. Fuckers.

    Then there are the five neighbors who are DEATHLY REPUBLICAN. They hate me.

    Then there's the creepy ex-priest. We don't know, and don't WANT to know why he isn't a man of god anymore.

    Then there's the russian old lady who walks her dogs ONLY when it's cloudy and over cast. She doesn't speak much English, and I don't know much russian AT ALL. But it's fun walking my dog with her because our dogs get along. I've seen her arguing with the ex-Priest in Russian while he was yelling that she was a devil.

    I DID have some REALLY nice neighbors when I was younger. They paid me to take care of their cat while they took a trip to try and get the wife's cancer taken care of. When they came back, I got paid DOUBLE. AND GOT A WHOLE BUNCH OF HOMEMADE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES. But a week after that, they had to go, because the wife had gone terminal and she wanted to die in her hometown. Honestly, I have to say, I hope she either SOME HOW survived, or that she died peacefully. She was REALLY nice. Plus their son was gay, and they supported him.

    I'll remember more fun stories eventually.
     
  4. I am "that neighbor".
     
  5. I'm the neighbor people wonder if she's still alive :P
     
  6. I'm the neighbor you don't know exists until Halloween.
     
  7. “Well, I grew up here and I like it.” Anya sigh.

    Alena moans pleasurably, “Oh god.. I miss you so much Alex...” she kiss him back hungrily.
     
  8. I do not enjoy having neighbors. They bring PESTILENCE and STRANGE ODORS. Not to mention PECULIAR SOUNDS at ODD HOURS of the NIGHT.
     
  9. They don't bother me, I don't send ballistic objects their way.
     
  10. A'Llara Petrresi, The Nurse - Pyrrhus Med-bay


    Lara was completely in negotiation mode when she asked Marica what she wanted. Far from her thoughts was the idea that the human lady could not be interested in business but pleasure instead. Surprise was impossible to hide as the woman stepped in close to her and touched her cheek. While cute, the offer only became tempting when the mention of home-cooked dinner was made. The subtext of course only made it worse especially after what Tavi made her promise. Just when she was about to reject the offer Marica placed the sweets in Lara's hand and left her with a kiss on the cheek.

    "Do you think she knows I'm 75 years old?" Lara turned to Sev as soon as Marica left. "I bet she's just into Taasi." Playing it cool Lara decided to put the RumBombs and the spare bar in one of the bottom desk drawers. She had to admit that Doctor Kim was definitely charming and knew just the right way to make Lara interested. Biting her lip she opened up the chocolate and took a bite of the bitter-sweet dark goodness. Even if her stomach was still a bit unsettled she ate the creamy bar letting the chocolate melt in her mouth rather than chewing it. "Ich prechy good chocolache." She spoke with a mouth full of sticky sweet caramel. Barely a single bite into the bar when someone else walked into the med-bay.

    Watching Suri who was allegedly in pain from hunger Lara picked up her data-slate with a free hand and flicked through it until she saw the wakeup schedule. "You're out of luck Suri, you just missed the Candy-woman. I can give you this Chocolate bar if you want but..." She looked at the clock on the wall. "The med-lock should've been lifted for you by now. If you want to choose your own food just head to the dining area. Or alternatively, go find Marica in the Science Wing and ask her for some candy." Perhaps it was a bit mean not to also mention there might be a price attached to that candy but Lara was doubtful Suri would rush on over there instead of towards actual food. "OR you could take what Sev offered, whichever you prefer." Smirking she winked at Sev. "A good number of the crew should already be in the Dining area in case you don't want to eat alone." She nodded with a smile to Suri further affirming that as a good idea.

  11. I live in a small town. So my next door neighbor is a freeloading bum of an uncle we want to kick out (but can't because my grandpa is too soft). Then I have a bunch of houses around mine and they're all church goers and we're too frickin' close to each other so, of course, they could hear my family's drama. <_<
     
  12. What makes you guys "that neighbor"? Was it intentional, or an accidental occurrence based on something "normal" for your household?
     
  13. I've never been outside.

    “Oo, that’s very innovative. I’ll write that up for ideas of illegal businesses that will for sure make me rich.” She rolled her eyes but smiled to herself. Her head did tilt as they discussed “What are you two talking about?” She inquired curiously. She wondered if John had someone still in Dagger.

    Belle

    She shrugged “Those are calming things for me I guess.” She chuckled softly and shook her head “Er...nevermind. Don’t worry your lovely little head about it.” She shrugged and went to go grab her arrow “I know I know. Practice practice. I doubt shooting an arrow once is going to make me be able to shoot an actual moving target.”
     
  15. Kunari scoff, “You’re too nice.”
     
  16. There's this silly old Chinese lady in our building that loves seeing me and my dad and laughing and saying "HELLO HELLO" in a high pitched voice. It's kind of cute and funny so we end up waving like idiots too and saying " HELLO HELLO" in high voices... xD
    I find it hilarious -__- though a little strange xD
