There is a little lot and camp for sale next door to our property. Coincidentally, since this is a tourist area, most of the people who come up to look at this property come on weekends. When, naturally, the husband and I are doing stuff around the place. The tractor is roaring, or the chipper is whining, or the splitter is making that obnoxious two stroke engine noise... or we're doing a little target shooting. But whatever... I think the property is grossly overpriced, and it is annoying to have people parked smack in the middle of the road, but we've never bothered them and they don't "bother" us. So. My neighbor (next door) who is renting the place below me decided he really loves it here and gets the agent to show him the only piece of property for sale on the hill... the lot next door. During the tour of the property the real estate agent waxes eloquent about its many positive properties (actually, there aren't too many, the lot is small and grossly overpriced) and then concludes "the only negative is the neighbors." "Oh?" says our neighbor, not letting on where he lives. At which point the agent unloads. They run tractors. They have sheep. You can hear the roosters crowing. They shoot guns off... THEN she gets into our politics (I write an op ed column for the local paper), starts ranting and raving about how socially unacceptable we are but "pretty soon they won't be able to afford to live here any more so you won't have to put up with them for long." Pause. "Oh," says my neighbor. "That's too bad. We've really enjoyed living next to them this past year." So I'm wondering.. should I call the nice real estate lady and ask her what her problem is?
