The couple's new house is not in SF. They should respect the tranquility of their new neighborhood. Purple doen't look good for that garage, it looks like garbage.

Another example of Californian's that embrrass me in other states. No wonder they call us the land of fruits & nuts...

I agree with the first poster...

By the way I love my gay friends and I love my nutty neighbors.

Ewww.. that garage/apt is BUTT-UGLY! Seriously. I understand that this is the land of the free and people can do as they please whether others like it or not, but DANG,.. this is like seriously, undeniably hidious!! In my opinion, is totally rude and inconsiderate to create such a big fat eye sore for their neighbors. PURPLE?? Can anyone tell me... are these people attention seekers or do they just have REALLY bad taste?? Yikes.

Hard to believe people are even spending
the energy to petition over the color of a house.
Honestly, there are more important things in life
than that. Let the owners alone. If others don't like
it, don't look at it, right? What's the big deal????

It is beautiful! At least it is clean,well kept, not attracting insects, or sex offenders.. It seems some need to develop a little tolerance for others perceptions of color. Besides, It isn't hurting anyone!

So lets see: as long as you haven't lost your home, your family and you are still living...you shouldn't have the right nor the sense to complain about something that offends you? Is that about right?

They'll be sued by their neighbors for lowering the property values.

Headline should have read:

Busy body neighbors have nothing better to do than mind other people's business.

Subtitle, "Other peoples' choices make us so mad!" one neighbor said.

Oh puh-lease! If it offends you so much, then don't friggin' LOOK at it.

If you want to gritch about it, then send a mature letter to the owners; getting all hot and bothered and then ranting about it on Topix isn't going to get you very far. Good luck.
