We have some new neighbors. To be blunt, they don't exactly fit in to our neighborhood. The are displaying some anomalous behavior, such as sitting in lawn chairs just inside their garage. Why would they want to do that? They have a backyard, and a rather nice deck and lawn upon which to place said lawn chairs. What's so fascinating about the front? Don't they want some privacy?

Yesterday, these people inflated some kind of pool thing, filled it with water and all got inside of the pool. Again, on the driveway. Why?

Also, at present count, there are four people living in the home. Yet, they have six vehicles. Why?

When I was a teen my friends and I always hung out in the garage. We did a lot of drinking/pot smoking in there.

They don't fit into your neighborhood because they inflate a pool on their property, and sit in their garage?

Perhaps you and the missus should go introduce yourselves. If you're lucky they will invite you into their inflatable water device and you can have wild kinky escapades with the new neighbors. If they don't then organize a neighbor HOA and kick their 4 collective asses and 6 cars out.

Just don't shoot him with a pellet gun...

Leander man arrested for shooting child with BB gun
By Isadora Vail | Tuesday, May 13, 2008, 04:09 PM

A Leander man was arrested and charged Sunday in connection with shooting a child in the back with a BB gun.

Robert Cleland, 38, was released after posting bail of $7,500. If convicted, he could face up to 20 years in prison.

Cleland told Leander police that he was drinking beer in his driveway while a group of neighborhood children were playing “war” with pellet guns, according to the arrest affidavit.

Cleland allowed one of the children to shoot him in the leg, after the victim’s father suggested it, but all of the children began shooting their guns at him, according to the affidavit.

He became angry, and grabbed his Daisy Powerline 880 BB gun from his garage. A boy continued to shoot at Cleland and as he walked away, Cleland “aimed the gun at (the boy’s) butt and discharged the BB gun,” according to the affidavit.

When police arrived, they found a hole and blood on the boy’s shirt. There also was a wound in the middle of his back that was approximately the size of a BB gun and was bleeding, the affidavit says.

Cleland was convicted of a terroristic threat in 2000 and spent 30 days in jail, according to open records.

There are quite a few people here that do the lawn chairs in the garage/driveway thing. I always figured it was because there are no basements in Florida and there's not a lot of 2 story houses that have decks so they just hang out in the front.

Garage sitting and bull shitting sessions have resulted as a result of modern houses being built with out front porches.
My parents had a older house with a front porch accompanied with the mandatory swing. Every night during the summer you could count on the folks being out there entertaining the neighbors. With the kids playing in the front or back yard.
Nowadays you're lucky if you nod to or even know the name of your next door neighbor.

As I mentioned in the HOA thread, in my neighborhood all garages have to fave 90 degrees away from the street. You can't even sit in your garage and see your front yard.

Hell my wife's mad at me because I sat the grill out in the front driveway instead of the back deck.

I'd just rather enjoy my kids playing as I always have in the front yard while I'm Q'ing..
Back yard is too enclosed.

That's part of the reason I don't want to move in said snobby hood.

No, they did not. I don't possess an inflatable pool. We have well-maintained and readily-accessible pools in this neighborhood. They do not require inflation.

In other houses where I've lived, we used the front yard and driveway quite a bit. Also, we were younger and lived in college neighborhoods. As such, it would be like a block party most nights. Now, though, our back yard opens up to a 15 acre green space behind us, and we have killer gardens. Our front yard, on the other hand, is a freaking grassless wasteland thanks two gigantic maples that cast their shadow over it.

It's a mixed bag. I miss the community aspect of everyone hanging out in the front, but I love sitting in the backyard and forgetting that I even live in the city.

I would imagine that it is. In some neighborhoods (as you're probably seeing from the responses here), it's the norm to hang out in the front in order to socialize. They probably moved from such a neighborhood and had great times out front. I guarantee that they're hoping that other people start stopping by regularly to hang out, knock back a few cold ones, and shoot the shit. It's sort of a passive way of trying to get to know the neighbors.

My wife and I have always said that we'd like to host a neighborhood happy hour on Fridays. We read some profile of someone in one of our local papers, and they'd been doing it for like 20 years or some such. It was pretty cool.

Well, there's the possibility that they're rude ass party people. If they're jamming their music and throwing down loudly after dark, then you might have issues. If they're responsible about it, it might be fun.

When I first saw the thread, I thought of this episode of intervention that I saw where the addict kid (a gulf war vet) would go hang next door at his neighbors house and get obliterated. They were the latter partying type. They had their weight bench in the garage, various tools strewn about everywhere, and would be up at 2:00 getting sloshed loudly in a nice neighborhood. Hopefully your neighbors aren't like that.

I've noticed that most of subdivions here also like to do the garage thing on Halloween. Probably half of the people giving away candy just set up lawn chairs and hang out in the garage while kids come up for candy. It really makes a lot of sense because you get to meet and greet all of your neighbors and you don't have to get up every 2 minutes to answer the door for trick or treaters.

Some call it social niceties, others call it plastic hospitality.

Are they loud and belligerent? If things don't work out, you could just burn them out. Just use bundles of money around the fuel tank. Money burns slow and will give you time to get away and establish an alibi.

Yep. I BBQ with my neighbors all the time but Wednesdays are "Beer Wednesday". We hang out and drink a few beverages in the front yard.

Before we moved in my neighbors never knew one another's names now we're all pretty tight friends. It's a good feeling, being neighborly. One of my neighbors doesn't have a basement. When the tornado whistles go off we leave the front door open so they'll have a place to hide.

You should go introduce yourself Donger. They might be some of the coolest people ever.

Also, at present count, there are four people living in the home. Yet, they have six vehicles. Why?

I can't speak to the number of vehicles, but they sound friendly. Perhaps you should approach them cautiously.

I'm really surprised that no one has commented on this. We're naturally going to need confirmation on the breasts. At the very least a more thorough description, typed slowly and at least twice, will do.

I'm always perplexed by the people who like to leave their garage doors up for no apparent reason. No one is in the garage. No chilling. No inflatable pool. No yard work, yet the garage door stays up for hours. WTF?

(in the midwest, I realize this buys a large cardboard box on the coasts), for example, to live in an up-scale neighborhood, it's not unreasonable to expect not to have to watch Cleetus splash in his kiddie pool in his driveway on Naturday with 10 people in plastic lawn chairs offering encouragement.

We have some new neighbors. To be blunt, they don't exactly fit in to our neighborhood. The are displaying some anomalous behavior, such as sitting in lawn chairs just inside their garage. Why would they want to do that? They have a backyard, and a rather nice deck and lawn upon which to place said lawn chairs. What's so fascinating about the front? Don't they want some privacy?

Yesterday, these people inflated some kind of pool thing, filled it with water and all got inside of the pool. Again, on the driveway. Why?

Also, at present count, there are four people living in the home. Yet, they have six vehicles. Why?

I'll agree there probaly is a lot more common folk than the hoity toity types that live there. Suburban cookie cutter homes, bored housewives, though, atleast IMO seems to attract more of the busy bodies than older neighborhoods and living in the sticks do. I like my personal privacy, but I don't want to have to hide behind a wall and a roof to have it.

I refuse to live in any neighborhood with a HOA. Nobody is going to tell me when, where and what I can or can't do to, or at my home. If I want a chain link fence, I'm going to have a chain link fence. If I want paint my house with pink polka dots, I'm going to paint pink polka dots.

We entertain a lot of guests there rather than in the house to save the house from the mess. We do a lot of BBQing in our backyard, and its nice to go into the garage to get out of the elements when you don't have the picture perfect day. It also doubles as a dog house for my two furry friends. Its great to be white trash. Carry on.

Thats nothing, I have a piece of white trash living behind me. I tried to talk my neighbors into buying the house when it was on the market. Its a tiny little house that could be cool, some old lady lived there. When I was it on the market for 30K I went and told the realtor I'd pay 10 cash, I was turned down and then tried to talk the neighbors into it. Didn't happen so no some drug dealer who has a brother who likes little kids is the wrong kind of way lives there.

They have a effin dog tied to the clothes line. Its a mean SOB because its been stabbed I'm told. It got loose one day and grabbed some kids pants and started to drag him back to their garage, I saw it and introduced that dog to my shovel. I knocked on the MFers door and said if your dog gets loose again I'm going to kill it.

Replace “bar” with “work bench and tools” then “pellet stove” with “propane heater” and you’ve just described my garage.
I do a lot of entertaining in my garage also, but it’s more like do a little wrenching, drink lots of beer. Do some more wrenching, drink lots more beer. Can’t read the numbers on the wrench anymore, screw it, beer’s still cold.

Leander man arrested for shooting child with BB gun
By Isadora Vail | Tuesday, May 13, 2008, 04:09 PM

A Leander man was arrested and charged Sunday in connection with shooting a child in the back with a BB gun.

Robert Cleland, 38, was released after posting bail of $7,500. If convicted, he could face up to 20 years in prison.

Cleland told Leander police that he was drinking beer in his driveway while a group of neighborhood children were playing “war” with pellet guns, according to the arrest affidavit.

Cleland allowed one of the children to shoot him in the leg, after the victim’s father suggested it, but all of the children began shooting their guns at him, according to the affidavit.

He became angry, and grabbed his Daisy Powerline 880 BB gun from his garage. A boy continued to shoot at Cleland and as he walked away, Cleland “aimed the gun at (the boy’s) butt and discharged the BB gun,” according to the affidavit.

When police arrived, they found a hole and blood on the boy’s shirt. There also was a wound in the middle of his back that was approximately the size of a BB gun and was bleeding, the affidavit says.

Cleland was convicted of a terroristic threat in 2000 and spent 30 days in jail, according to open records.

20 years? For just shooting a kid in the bum with a BB gun? :shake:

I have zero problems with HOA's. Personally I find them too restrictive for my own taste but I see no reason a group of like minded persons can not set standards that "they" find appealing. The important thing is to not live in a place if you disagree with the HOA policies. That would make it necessary to actually "read" the covenants but that should be a no-brainer anyway.

The interesting part to Dongers scenario is the fact that the new neighbors don't appear to be breaking any of the covenants. If that is true then I don't see a problem with their behavior. Can covenants be changed? And if so, what is the redress for the new neighbors?

I can't handle HOA's, that's why I have 40 acres here in CO and a couple hundred in NW MO. I was pissed when the Co. Springs townfolk voted to zone us out here in the eastern part of the county. I want to be able to take a leak off the front porch when I let the dogs out and not have a neighbor bitch. I don't need for some tight-lipped assh0le to tell me I gotta put shingles on my roof if I want metal for durability and wind resistance. And the neighbors I do have (minimum 1/4 mile away) are just like me. We look out after each other and tell each other when things seem out of the ordinary.

When I was in college I had a duplex next to an older couple and he sat in his lawn chair in the garage and would just sit there smoking and listening to the radio. Family visited us and would ask why is there an old man just sitting in his garage. We all found it strange. So you arent alone on that.

As far as everyone saying they like to hang out in the front and watch their kids play, frankly I would rather have my kids playing in the back fenced in yard with the dog so I dont have to worry about anyone getting hit by a car or wandering off. I think part of the problem is all these damn crazy people out there that arent afraid to just drive by and snag an innocent little kid. I have seen Mystic River I know how things happen.

Not to mention it is not uncommon for me to hang out in the back yard and visit with my neighbors who are also entertaining in their backyards. Just because there is a fence it doesnt mean people cant be social.

Why would they want to do that? They have a backyard, and a rather nice deck and lawn upon which to place said lawn chairs. What's so fascinating about the front? Don't they want some privacy?

Yesterday, these people inflated some kind of pool thing, filled it with water and all got inside of the pool. Again, on the driveway. Why?

Also, at present count, there are four people living in the home. Yet, they have six vehicles. Why?

When I was a kid in the early 80's we lived in a town of approx 1,200 in KS. We did that grill in the front yard thing with neighbors and lawn chairs from time to time, especially around the 4th of July. I miss that.

Later, my dad and mom built a big ass pool and a fence and the BBQ went undercover. We still had people over but it wasn't nearly as intimate.

Sounds like your neighbors are throwbacks. I think it's a good opportunity. Buy a lawn chair or two and head on over.

About 20 years ago in Baltimore I had a neighbor who sat in his front yard almost every summer night. He was an older man, since died. In those days I'd get home from work about 9:30 most nights and there he'd sit in his lawn chair with a six-pack cooler alongside and his radio. The radio was always tuned to the Orioles game which I'd also be listening to in the car. After I parked and before I went inside I'd always stop for a moment to talk to him about the game. Sometimes I'd go get a beer and then sit with him and listen for an inning or so. I'm not sure if we ever called each other by name but we both liked the Orioles and we both liked beer and we both liked summer nights.

I don't think there was a home owners association in that neighborhood. Still, it was a nice place to live.

Seriously, they had a back yard just outside that door down the long hallway in the last house. Moble homes don't have garages though and they are probably just a little fascinated with it currently. Don't worry, it will pass - they will get the garage so full of junk before long that there won't be room for lawn chairs in it.

I fabricated some 10 air blower stands in my driveway a few years ago. The retired neighbor closest to the driveway had the HOA handbook in one hand, a printed City Code webpage in the other. I was reminded about not having the authority to build such equipment on our property, how I was making noise and making the area smell of solvent and paint, and how our cars weren't always parked in the garage,... He gave me 3 days to finish the projects before he would call the HOA and the city. My other neighbors had dropped by, one who is a police officer in an adjoining city, told me, "Cool looking stands, man." I got them done in the time prescribed, and parked one of our cars in the garage for at least a week.

A week ago, my next-door neighbors on the other side inflated an inflatable pool for their kids; the kids were loud and sprayed water all over the place. Having had three kids like he does, and how they were loud as Hell, I enjoyed the heck out of it.

man....they sound like barbarians! what has the world come to! they have lawn chairs???! and they sit in their garage!? plus 6 cars?? WTF. watch your back, and if have you dont gave a gun...get one! automatics are ideal in a situation like this.
