Whipped cream on poo will still taste like crap!

I don't live in the best neighborhood in the area, so some things are just expected. I'm not surprised when I have to pick up empty beer bottles from my yard b/c it is the corner lot. I'm not surprised when I get chased by stray dogs on my run. I'm not even surprised at the cracked out hooker that walks the streets...but this??


When we first moved in, we honestly thought this house was vacant, and possibly condemned. We have been proven wrong through the years as there are random people passing through for a few weeks/months at a time. One of the residents even pounded on our door @ 0100 b/c he smelled smoke and something caught on fire...and he didn't have a phone to call 911 (he also wasn't wearing a shirt or shoes & it dropped below freezing that night).

The picture isn't that great, but they put up new wood paneling without fixing the crappy particle board that lies underneath. Also the bright blue color they chose is, umm, well, horrid! Another great tidbit is that they only did this to the side of the house that faces the main road. Yep, so the other sides are still just painted particle board.

Thank you neighbor for helping my property value drop even more. The house next to it is even worse!! I have seriously considered buying the discounted trees & shrubs @ Lowe's and planting them in front of these houses at night. That way there will be something nice to look at...and in a few years, possibly block the view of their house.

Oh geez, that's awful and the color is strikingly similar to my neighbor at my last house. Although I was lucky enough (or unlucky enough) that he had all 4 sides painted.

The good news is that when your house goes up for sale, you won't have any competition. Yours will be the bright spot!

I sort of got stuck on the "Cracked out hooker..." Really?

I once had a neighbor that was a crack dealer... SO. NOT. FUN. to live next door too.

My sympathies! (Buy the trees-- lots and lots of trees!)

That thing is atrocious! You can't polish up a turd. HA

Well with the hooker, are you SURE it isn't a crack den itself?! It is a good thing your hubbie can probably look menacing I think!
