Today, one of the **** dogs next door howled and whined alternately for almost three hours. I was almost losing my mind, the pair of us were yelling through the wall for it to shut up...or words to that effect... it would stop for a second or two then start up again. I rang the Environmental people and got an answer machine. I wonder when they will ring me back. I am SOOOOOOOOO ready for them.
I was just going to go round next door to kick their door in to get at it, when hubby mentioned someone had come home in the van. Now normally I do not move very fast due to dodgy legs but I was out that door like a veritable whippet. It was the son [yuk] he got out the van and I quite calmly said, one of your dogs has been howling and whining for almost 3 hours, he jumped down my throat saying...
'if I am not there how can I do anything about it, if I am there they behave'
IN HIS DREAMS
The conversation I have to say disintegrated from that point, I didn't shout, I didn't lose my temper, but I was seething, he came out with a load of crap, you just never know what lies are pouring from their mouths with that family. I never believe them anymore whatever they say. All I wanted was for him to say.....Sorry.
I told him I had rung the Environmental people and he said---
'so what - they say there is no problem with our dogs. You are the problem.'
Hmmm sorry NOT obviously in his vocabulary, he turned the whole thing around and was blaming me for it all in then end. He also remarked on some 'fly tipping' that had been done at the back of their fence at the back of their back garden - I use that word garden very loosely folks!!!!
I did see the disgusting settee that had been dumped there and meant to ring the Council but have been busy myself and forgot. Apparently he rang the Council and reported about the rubbish at the back, well excuse me while I just sit and bust myself laughing....has he seen his front 'garden' let alone the back one. Steptoe's yard is just not in it folks. It has to be seen to be believed. Crap as far as the eye can see.
So having got nowhere with this moron, I went in and I was shaking from head to foot and unable to breath properly, hubby was concerned he thought I would have a heart attack and said they would be pleased if I did. Do you know something, I am stating here and now IF I die from a heart attack it will be their fault through the stress they have caused me over the years. If they die...ooooo you best not ask, because I know what I am going to be doing.
It took me a long while to get my breathing under control. Hubby made me the much needed cot, I stomped about getting all the bits together for my groups meeting tomorrow. Then I went and did some quilting along to Robbie at Knebworth.
Window open wide, Robbie almost full volume and sewing machine going at top speed.
I do hope he heard it, but then again I don't think he did cos he was yelling at all the dogs to shut the ***** up.
My neighbour over the back has told me they have counted 15 dogs in there.
I rang the Environmental people and got an answer machine. I wonder when they will ring me back. I am SOOOOOOOOO ready for them.
Am I still angry. You betcha.
