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.
That's a great way to finally get rid of that Shirley "trash" problem.

My neighbors are functional drugs addicts and up all night at 4:00am their dogs are out barking. In the morning they leave for work. When they're around, the woman is truly frightening who looks like a witch and starts yelling obscenitities at us. We call the cops every chance we get. They're like vampires we wonder when they sleep since they don't sleep at night.

Moving doesn't reallly help. We moved because the neighborhood we lived in was like a fish bowl. Everyone was into everyone else's business All the time. I once had a guy ask me why was I shoveling the snow from my front steps? if you weren't into the block party they came ina group to ask you why? The Orthodox lady two doors down was intent on my joining her temple and always asking for money..........it never ended. So we moved, for a while it was great. The people next door sold their house and a family moved in with two barjing dogs, five kids and seven vehicles (two drivers) roaring in and out ripping up our private road. When you try to "talk with them" haha, they become insane, screaming, cursing and carrying on. So we planted a lot of trees on the property line to block them out and maybe muffle the noise. Know what they did? they RAN over the trees! Don't get mad, get even, go to badneighbor.com and put in the street address and describe what your bad neighbors do so that people relocating can see who they may be living next door to, ask the neighbors onthe other side of the home for sale what the neighbors are like BEFORE you buy the house. Maybe they will let you in on something, maybe they are the "bad neighbors" ya never know until it's too late!

Here's what Newsday left out about Mr. Wachler for those who don't remember:

In 1988 Sol Wachtler began an improper affair with Mrs. Joy Silverman, 46, while the executor of the Silverman will and the trustee of the Silverman family's $24 million trust fund. He collected more than $805,000 in fees, which Mrs. Silverman considered excessive.[1] He started a harassment and blackmail campaign against Mrs. Silverman when she ended their affair in September 1991. Mr. Wachtler authorized he be paid $38,665 in trustee commissions for 1992, which Mrs. Silverman protested. When confronted by Mrs. Silverman he told her, "No-one will believe you." However she was recording the conversations, which she took to the federal authorities in the belief that Mr. Wachtler would not be prosecuted by the New York legal establishment. Mr. Wachtler was arrested on an expressway while driving home in November after authorities said he arranged to pick up a $20,000 extortion payment from Mrs. Silverman.[2] Judge Wachtler claimed mental incapacitation due to a bipolar disorder. Found competent to stand trial, he pleaded guilty to harassing Joy Silverman and mailing a condom to her teenage daughter. He resigned as a judge and from the bar, and served an 11-month sentence in a mental health unit of a federal prison

Wish that this helps but my lovely neighbor has been visited numerous times because of his barking dogs and he directed them to the guy up the road who also keeps his barking dogs outside all day. They actually believed him. Then the guy accused US of calling them and has threatened to let his guard dogs loose on us 'when we least expect it' Nice huh? I will get a gun, get it licensed and walk my dog with it and shoot those bastards the minute they step foot on my land. that is the only thing these kooks respect.

Your best bet is to get a mini voice recorder stick it in your pocket, with it recording, and get him to tell you that he is going to let his dog(s) loose on you, bring it to the police and you can get him arrested for harrasement, and/or threatening to physically harm you.

can spoil an otherwise good area. Case in point: A thirty-something couple thought it was a good idea to keep their Rover on a rope outside all day while they were at work. Rover proceeded to bark all day. And, most people were too fickle to confront them. Stronger measures were taken and now they more or less abide by the town code. But get a concentration of such selfish people and there goes the neighborhood.

The amazing thing about people who have fleets of trucks, endless boats, boat trailers, house trailers and campers in their double and triple driveways (these folks just love to pave) as well as endless cars (yes that is my neighbor right next door) is that they are destroying not only the surrounding property values but are also destroying their own.

If people are not intelligent enough to see that then no amount of sweet talking will work.

God has created millions and millions of morons and through a great deal of trial and error he got oceans of them PERFECT!!!

And a lot of us have them for neighbors and for good measure I am usually surrounded by them on the roads these days...go figure!!!!

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.

You are a disgusting human being. The life of a 29 year old woman with a huge heart and all the promise in the world was taken. In no way shape or form are your comments funny. I hope you and Mr. Walsh enjoy the same corner in hell.
