You call that 'keeping to themselves'? Calling the town on me is WAR, MUTHAFECKER!!!
Well, we all used to be relatively friendly which is why I don't understand why they would turn on me like that. If I saw Mr. Klopek sitting out on the front porch and I was heading down to the taps for a beer, I'd grab one for him too. It was good. Then it wasn't. Then I started completely ignoring them... no more small talk, no more waving to them, etc. Since then they have been quiet and to themselves which is fine with me. Honestly, you don't call the village on your neighbor until things escalate beyond your control... like you have talked with them and they keep doing whatever it is they're doing and you have no weapons left. They basically used "temporary insanity" for a parking ticket on this one and I have no idea why. Ghouls. Ghouls I tells ya.
When the pool was being installed, he was at the fence watching all the time. Talking to the crew, asking about this or that. One of the guys told me he was bugging them so I walked outside and asked him what was up. He said, "What if the girls (they have twin girls who may have been 4-5 years old at the time) climb over the fence and drown in your pool?". I just looked at him. I did not say, "Maybe you should keep an eye on your kids!"... I just said, "Steve. Please".
