I have a neighbor who thinks it's a good idea to have roosters. These things do not stop making noise. Even when they do finally shut up, he comes out of his house to making rooster noise to get them going again. The yard is not fenced in a they walk throughout the neighborhood. The cops and animal control do not care.

This could be funny. There must be a million "bad neighbor" stories.

I had one who didn't like to walk her dog. She'd put a leash on it for show and let it out the front door by itself. It would then do its business on my lawn. She was always prepared with the "it broke the leash" story. One day I was home and witnessed this event. As the dog squated I called to my wife in a loud voice "Get my rifle, that dogs back!". The next second my neighbor is flying across the street in her housecoat screaming. The dog never came back.

Realist, the next time the dog poops in your yard, pick it up and put it in a brown paper bag. Place the bag on your neighbors front doorstep and set it on fire. Ring the bell. Your neighbor will stomp on the bag and you'll never have poop in your yard again. My dad did this years ago and I've never forgotten it.

You are stupid. Rosters,(Cocks) cannot be in close proximity with each other other wise they will fight! Cock fighting. Get it!

please, the neighbor across the street from me assaulted my dad for no reason, and now, even though we had him arrested and cinvicted of the assault charge, he continues to harass us, when asked about why he continues to harass us, he told us it was because he didn't like us. Nice Guy huh?

our old neighbor attacked me Dad on the front lawn too, knocked him down and rolled around-- the police did nothing-- said it was harrassment even though the guy pushed him down and jumped on him. Pretty bad when the police don't help the good guys...

How funny is it that Newsday asks ex Judge Sol Wachtler for advice on settling disputes. This is the same guy who was bisbarred and went to jail in the 80's for harrassment and blackmail against a former girlfriend and for sending condoms to her teeenage daughter. Yea this guy knows how to settle a dispute.

Of course they picked Wachtler... it's a liberal newspaper.

If he had fire bombed a police station, he would be getting tenure at Harvard.

One of times that the neighbor started things up after the initial assault, we called the cops, he went to the guys house without comming to talk to us first and then came to my dad and told us that we should move. gotta love the SCPD

Maybe Austin doesn't know the difference? Get a nice pellet gun and have some target practice.

I just moved into a new house in the spring and I think we did the block a favor, from what I gather. Not that the people were violent, but they seem to be a little insane if you ask me. They live around the block now and it's creepy when they walk their dog past my house.
I hope you changed the locks-

Our neighbor comes home and gets drunk and blasts the stereo outside everyday during the summer. In response to asking him to lower it, he raises the volume. So I killed him. Problem solved.
