    My neighbor is bugging me big time. My lawn mower died a month ago. Not a big deal since the lawn hasn't been growing because of the cold. I went and bought another one because to fix it would have been more then half the cost of a new one and it's like 12 years old anyhow. Well I get the sucker out and ready, go to start it and the pull cord pulls out in my hand. I return it to the store and they don't have anymore in stock. They are a small little ma nd pop place so they can't exactly call another location. So I wait until this week and they just give me a little better one since the one I got was discontinued er something. So anyhow my lawn started growing in the mean time like a week ago. It looks shaggy and kinda bad. I fully admit it needed a mow... so wtf my neighbor this morning is out there mowing it! He complained it looked bad yesterday. I said this Saturday when I have time because I work when it's daylight during the week I will mow it and clean up my yard. I myself don't enjoy being a mess. But no he doesn't hear that he mows it. What a schmuck! Makes me mad... but maybe he'll trim the scrubs and save me the trouble... what should I expect from anyone who is outside anytime a leaf falls on his lawn, mows twice a week, has pink flamingos, and works as an interior designer! Anyone else have a neighbor like this?

    No. He mows everyones yard he feels is too long... another neighbor had a tree removed and laid in the gutter until he could chop it into fire wood when he could (like a week later). This guy went over and did so and stacked it up with a note saying something like it was an eye sore to leave it setting there. He has issues... last year I had a motion light installed and he complained it was too bright... uh it's a light, it's supposed to be bright....

    My neighbors complained about me parking my truck on my lawn (when I was moving), so I parked it on theirs. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    Untill two years ago I had ablsolutely NO neighbors. Now I have almost 3000 of them. They have all signed a petition that our 68 acres are an eyesore and a nuisance. Of course our property used to be nice and clean but now that all these a$$ holes have moved in, people are dumping garbage all around us and at both ends of the property. We can't even keep up with it. And the cops do nothing about it.

    Ya I got neighbors like that. 3000 of them... /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    My neighbor, mows his lawn 3 times in a row, as in right after he mows it he starts over and after he's done it twice, he goes over it again, all on the same setting.This guy is a trip, me and the other neighbor hang out drink beers and stuff and we tried to be friends with him when he first moved in and we thought everything was cool til one day he just stopped talking to us, the dude is the biggest trip.... /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    You should really screw with the guy and put a clothes line on your front lawn. Maybe even tie up a goat and plant some corn really screw with the guy. Now if it was Me and someone came over and started mowing my lawn well that SOB would be having a mower stuck up his arse and be taught a lesson on how to mind his own buisness. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Send him out here. He can help my neighbor to the north of me. She will mow a little of my front yard. Not all of it. One time she left a 4'x4' square in the middle unmowed. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif She will weed along the house for me. Just an older lady with not much to do other than yardwork. The only bad part is she will mow at 10pm in the dark with a push mower. Must have bat vision. I thought about buying her a miner's helmet, but I'm afraid she would keep the kids up.

    One of my neighbors who has been living there probably 2 or so years has allready re sodded(sp?) his yard 3 times. He washes his driveway and the whole street infront of his house off at least 4 times a day. He washes his house off probably 3 times a week. He probably does have the cleanest vehicles around though. They get washed 2 a week and dried with a leaf blower and paint brush.

    Did you try to just reattach the cord?
