Neighbors are a lottery, looks like you didn't win this one. could your blessings - she could:
send the kids to your place to play until 5 pm when dad gets homebe so drunk the kids are wandering all over looking for an adult to take care of them and she's wandering all over the neighborhood looking for a place to hang out and put her special coffee 'addition' in. Oh, and you get to listen to ALL her problems.
blow the car horn a specific number of times to signal when the kids can come home.
Nothing like having a kid crying in your front yard because mama said he can't come home until dinner time. Took me awhile and several of those but I finally started telling the kids what she did was wrong and next time I would call the police because she had abandoned her child at my place. That stops it cold. And as an added bonus - she won't talk to you anymore!
On accents - my cousin still wins - she took her native jersey accent, spent a year in Lafayette LA then returned with a mix of both. eeuuuu.
I have no advice expect put up a big fence and do not appear hospitable.Now you know why I do not want neighbors anymore. You might try being difficult so the kids stay inside?
Well if you remember a while back about our neighbor that has an extremely bad red neck accent and is always out yelling for the kids to come in etc... Well it's like nails on a chalk board and heard everywhere. Now she has made it even worse. She now has a megaphone. She was out using it yesterday for calling the kids.... As if it couldn't get any worse. And the kids have learned the same or worse accent. I have no idea where they are from but no one around other than them has an accent like that. Maybe from alabama etc...Robert Adams
