love my neighbors

I got home last night to my neighbor next door letting me know the one across the street approached him about my rig being parked in front of my place. Apparently its a "white trash pos eye sore that's bringing down the home values and news to be burned and tows away "

I'm looking forward to winter so not only will it be "ugly " to here it can also be noisy and obnoxious at 5am when she's out warming up. Lol

Apparently she's talked to everyone in the local area about it but me. Almost makes me wanna make it uglier lol

Sorry rant off. I hate people

Where else are you supposed to park it? Geez. As long as it doesn't look abandoned (thick coat of dust, cobb webs, flat tires, etc) there isn't much they can do, but talk. It's your house, your truck.

What do they object to.....A vehicle is parked in front of your house (so it wouldn't matter if you had a brand new truck) or the fact that your truck is 'old'(er)?

Some people should mind thier own business.

I'm not real sure. The lot next to me use to be empty. I parked my k5 there so it wouldn't be in Ger way backing out of her garage. She complained to the neighbors /association called me on it. The lady is a real old hag. I've tried to be nice to her. She just scowls and walks off. So to be neighborly i park right where she needs to back out. Traded the k5 for the 350 and she's at it again. My car is in the garage. Wife's truck is in the driveway. If i drive the truck i keep it in the drive. If i drive the car i keep it in the street to keep from having to shuffle cars a few times a day.

Guy around the corner has a ROUGH Chevy short wide. I wanna talk him into parking it in front of my house for a few weeks. I'm really not sure what her issue is. I guess its not "nice " enough for her. Maybe i need a new Lexus to fit in with her

I had something very similar happen about a month ago. I had an issue replacing the fuel pressure regulator spring and had a fuel leak. It was getting late and so I called it a night knowing what I had to do the next day.

The next morning, I went out and fixed the problem at about 8:30 in the morning. My neighbor right next to me (I live in a townhouse) was on her porch talking on the phone and so I walked over letting her know I had to fire my truck up and wanted to make sure she was ok with that. She sid, "no problem Bill!" and I went back and fired it up. After about 3 minutes and no leaks, I shut it down and started putting everything else back together.

It was at that moment that the neighborhood cat lady with her two dogs started b*itching at me about my truck being too loud and that people were trying to sleep. Keep in mind it was 9:00 at this point. I told her that my truck was no louder than any of the other vehicles around nor was it any louder than her little yip-yap dogs that bark non-stop every time she brings them outside.

The next door neighbor then got involved and basically told the old one she needs to mind her own business and go away.
