Yesterday was weird. DH is the president of our neighborhood home
owner's association. Usually our days are peaceful, with an occasional
rumbling from a homeowner who wants tp put up a new shed in his
Yesterday, DH gets this drunken phone call from a new
resident who is renting a house. She demands that he speak to her next
door neighbors and tell them that they must be nice to her. She also
insists that one of the neighbors is racist (not to my knowledge!) and
that they are complaining about her dogs barking. She rants for an hour
while DH tries to explain to her that the HOA doesn't deal with any of
this. He hung up and walked outside.
She called back, and this
time I spoke to her politely at first. She had called the police at
that point. I am pretty certain that this is the first time that the
police have EVER been called to our neighborhood. The police tried to
diffuse the situation and took no action. (Yay for them!) She them
informed me that because DH is president of the HOA, he is responsible
for her neighbors behavior. She also informed me that she had a gun and
a carry permit. I told her that , no, DH was not responsible for
relations between neighbors, and that I was going to hang up. I asked
her not to call back.
Twenty minutes later, she is pounding on my
door and screaming to get in to my house. I am deep into new chemo,
and I am in bed. Dh spoke to her and she went away thinking that she had triumphed over her neighbors..
sleep. I am worried that there is a nut case with a gun in my
neighborhood. One of our friends is her stepfather. We called him, and
he advised us to have as little to do with her as possible, and
confirmed our assessment of her.
What should I do? I don't want this woman in my house!
