OMG! I have new neighbors…… I think they are going to turn out to be the neighbors from Hell…
Remember the movie A Christmas Story? And the neighbors… The Bumpasse’s with all their hounds running around making noise and getting into everything…My new neighbors are just like the Bumpass’es….only replace the hounds with kids…
The Bumpasse’s moved into the neighbor hood the beginning of the summer, while I was vacationing in Europe…I was depressed as it was having to end such a great time…but then to come home and discover what has moved in next store…well….all I could do was..let out a big sigh!
My daughter and her husbands bedroom is on the side of the house that faces the Bumpasse’s house. My bedroom (thank god) is on the other side of the house so I haven’t had to listen to them all night long while trying to sleep…
So…let me tell you a few of things that the Bumpasse’s have been up too.
The first weekend they move in I come home to find the Bumpass daughters on my front lawn selling lemonade…while at first I thought it was kinda cute, it brought back memories of my kids selling kool-aid in the front yard…one big difference though…my kids didn’t scream at the top of their lungs….LEMON-ADE!!! wait…scream… is putting it nicely….shrieking at the top of their lungs is more like it….like the sound of fingernails scratching on a chalkboard shrieking…. the youngest Bumpass daughter was running around on my front lawn…Shreiking LEMONADE ! they yelled LEMONADE at every person walking by…or any car driving by….
And let me till you….Bumpass Fest went on for hours….
Then finally it was quiet once again..I went out to check my front yard…. they had packed up most of the lemonade stand….but they left their chairs in my front yard…I thought that was kind of odd till I took a look at their front yard…..It was full of furniture…couches…chairs…tables and tons of boxes…so my guess … they didn’t even miss what they had left behind.
Their yard still looked like that the next day…and they still hadn’t picked up what they left in my front yard…so the chairs were tossed into the pile of stuff on their front yard..
My daughter has told me stories about how the Wife/Mother screams all night long at the husband…she even wakes up the kids at 2 in the morning screaming and telling them what a horrible father they have…the funny thing is…you never hear a word from the Husband/Father.??
This family never talks to each other…they scream every word!
Last night the daughters were digging in my trash…and pulled out a bunch of card board boxes that I had neatly put in piles to be re -cycled…the mother yelled at them to put them back…they did…but now the boxes were all over the street…I had to once again go stack the boxes in neat piles..
Now… I know what you must be thinking….why is she being so annal about a few boxes….it wasn’t just a few boxes…it was about 20 boxes of all sizes…some of them big enough to put a washing machine or wide screen t.v in…so I was a little pissed off when I had to clean up the boxes….So….not only are they noisy neighbors they are trash pickers too!
So whats your guess…The neighbors from hell?… noisy Rednecks?..White Trash?….I think I will just refer to them as the Bumpasse’s….it seems to be a perfect descript
I believe in seeing the bright side of everything….so the good news is….I will have more to blog about?
P.S. all is quiet on the Bumpass front today…..the Bumpasse’s have a boat. and I don’t see it in the driveway today…so that means they are wreaking havoc on a lake somewhere and terrorizing someone else today! *Evil laugh* tee hehe
