just a rant about our new neighbor

The road that crawled out the window and disappeared

I wanted to write a live update again, as the last posts were just anime reviews, and they were even scheduled *lazy* But honestly, I have no idea what topic to write about, because nothing special has been happening this month. The good thing about a personal blah blah blog though is, that I don’t owe anyone anything when I write, so I can just go on blabbing like a mad woman. And that’s what I’ll do!

We got a new monitor for the computer at last, which is very nice. It’s not some expensive shit or anything, as I just wanted something a bit wider than our old monitor, and that’s what we got. The colors are much nicer now, and it’s finally HD *chuckles a bit* Playing FFXIV looks sooo good now! Being on that topic, I got Warrior and Machinist to lvl 70, so I’m over half the way with my goal. Now I’m working on Dark Knight and Ninja, which is going very well, especially since the main scenarios give more EXP now.

I wrote about some rude men who came to install our new neighbor’s internet a while ago, and yeah, she finally moved in. I met her when she stopped by to have a look at the house next door, which had been for sale for over 2 years, and she seemed quite nice. Now that she’s here though, I really don’t know what to think of her. The same day she moved in, she knocked on our door to ask about the heating in her house, which didn’t seem to work. My boyfriend went over there to have a look at it, since we have the same heating system as her, but apparently it was broken from not having been used for a long time, and she’d need a plumber to fix it. Then she asked my boyfriend when he’d call one… Uhm, it turned out she thought we were her landlords, and thus we had to pay for everything that needed to be fixed in her new home.

Okay, so of course we are not her landlords, and of course we as her normal fucking neighbors don’t have to pay for any of her shit, so that’s what my boyfriend told her (in a nice way). And her parents. Because apparently they also thought we had to deal with her shit. She also asked us to sign some contract about getting help with her monthly rent, which we are not in charge of doing because we are NOT her bloody landlords, and which she is actually not even entitled to, because she bought a bloody HOUSE. So now I wonder why she moved here. It’s a tiny town quite far from the nearest city (the one we moved from), she has no car, she needs help from the state to pay the rent, and she never EVER leaves the house. Or well, to throw out garbage she does, and then she slams her front door like some angry Hulk, which annoys the shit out of me.

And oh yeah, the rude internet guys packed all their stuff and left shortly after she moved in, so now there are cables right outside her house that don’t go anywhere at this moment. It makes me wonder if she cancelled the whole thing when she realized that she has to pay for it herself? I don’t know, but she doesn’t have any internet now, and sometimes just sits and looks out the window. She seems lonely and bored, but I sure as heck won’t knock on her door to try and change that, because I really don’t know what to do with a person like her. Our neighbors don’t know what to do either. They have both asked about her, but don’t want to visit her, because she’s the type who barely wants to greet anyone. So when we were invited to our neighbor’s husband’s 90th birthday, she told us that the new one ain’t getting an invitation, which I fully understand, seeing as they don’t know her.

Well anyway, few days ago, some family of hers came knocking on our door, telling us she wanted to remove the antenna that’s attached to her house. Uhm, no. That’s for all 4 houses here, which she should know if she had bothered to read the rules and guidelines for buying a house here. It’s not like the antenna is in the way or something, she just wanted to remove it for the sake of removing it *sigh* So now I’m thinking, that she must be really fucking dense, and I don’t mean that as an insult, but as a dead serious statement about her mental health. She seems to be behind in her head, and her parents must be too, seeing as they too didn’t realize that when you buy a house, you have no landlord. I know that I am not in the best mental shape myself with my Asperger, OCD and anxiety issues, but I sure as fuck knew what I was doing when signing the contract for buying this house!

So, our neighbors give her 1 month, then they believe she’ll try to sell the house again. I give her 3 months, because then she has gotten the worst bills for gas and electricity (water comes only once a year). If she can’t even pay her rent without help, then I’m pretty darn sure she’s gonna choke on the other bills, as well as garbage disposal, insurance and regular maintenance. Oh, did I mention that she wants to break down a wall and install french doors? Bloody hell… At least we as chairmen have a say in that, because it could cause the roof of the house to crash. And what happens if she really decides to move again when the bills start hitting her mailbox? I do wonder, because if she still thinks it’s anything like an apartment, then she will probably stop paying the rent when putting the house up for sale, and then she’s in for an even bigger surprise, because that’s not how it works. Oh well, I guess only time will tell, but in case you haven’t noticed yet, I don’t have high hopes for her future here.

Thinking about me not knowing what to write, this is becoming quite the long entry. Anyway, I’m doing my Crafty February just as planned, and even better than expected! My plan was to post on Instagram and/or Tumblr every 7 days with an update, but I’m actually posting on both daily. I’ve not skipped a day so far, even though there were days where I barely had time. Making a candle is easy and quite fast though, so I keep the empty tea cups I have as backup. When the month is over, I will make a post here with everything that I’ve made, so no worries if you like neither Instagram nor Tumblr, as you can soon see everything here.

Next month, I’ll finish reading Dante, and write a post about it here. And I think that’s it for now. Phew, it ended up becoming a long rant about a person I don’t even know, although she’s been living next to me for 3 weeks now. I feel a little bad for ranting, but then again, her behavior is a little shitty, so whatever…
