One of my neighbors who takes my trash to the dump, called me over to our fence.
She seemed on something... well she was. She whispered that she would keep taking my trash to the dump when she took their trash. And not charge me anything. BTW I pay the dump.
So she told me she wanted me to pay her 20$ in cash every month. I asked her why. She said for her pot. I was dumbfounded.
Her spouse was on the steps watching. She is not using anything. I don't think she could hear what was said.
All I kept saying was, OK? That is my standard reply when confused. Which I sure as heck was.
My neighbor kept saying the same thing over & over. I know there was a strange expression on my face. Which her spouse saw.
I have not seen either of them and will not mention it to either of them. Though next sat I will let them know my son will take my trash to the dump once a month.
Really I'm pretty much a 60's southern Californian. But this had me gob-smacked!
Between having my street, and the ones that corner with mine, plus the bar that is part of the scene. And within walking distance of my house...and the whole area a police search location.. whoa! Scary!
This morning I didn't walk to the mailbox till 10:30am. Still nerve wracking!
Just wanted to vent. Thats two really weird events this week. Well really three, as the "Dog" problem family used A's driveway as a parking lot. They did not close his gate, which he does habitually.
So I don't know if I should call him re his open gate as he is friends with them.
I will more strongly suggest he gets a lock for the gate.
Totally bizarre as we discussed locking the gate before he left yesterday morning. If the father doesn't have the gate closed tonight, not sure what to do. This is country, and I have a problem with them over the Dog issue.
