I think I am going to start up a charity for my next door neighbors so that they can pay their electric bill. This is about the fourth time this year they have gotten shut off.
When this happens, do they go to a motel? No. Do they stay with family? No. Do they light candles? No…..
They power the house with a gasoline powered generator.
Imagine a running motorcycle right outside of your window, 24 hours a day. That’s what it sounds like. And when we complained about the noise, they moved it to their garage, tried to “stifle the noise with trash bags”, and cracked the garage door. Oh and did I mention that we are in a row and have a shared wall?
After being threatened by them NOT to call the cops, we called the cops. The fire department, the cops and licenses and inspections came out, and indeed, our carbon monoxide reading was through the roof from the fumes. We could have died, had we not called.
Poor bastards….. Oh well. At least we’re not dead!
