Dumb Complaints from Area People

I moved near a racetrack and I’m annoyed that there are racetrack sounds. Someone should do something about this. It’s ridiculous that this place that has existed for 50 years isn’t being forced to close down because I’m too stupid to realize a racetrack makes racetrack sounds.

Same as above for airports.

Same as above for train tracks.

I’m too stupid to use a roundabout with more than one lane, so please reduce all the roundabouts to one lane so there aren’t accidents. Who cares that people use these all over the world. They are just too confusing and we shouldn’t be expected to drive like this.

The entrance to the new gas station is a problem because there are too many accidents. They need to limit access because people can’t figure out how to turn in and out from various locations.

The entrance to the shopping center is terrible. They need to fix it because there are too many traffic problem there. Who cares that shopping centers around the country have the same type entrance. We can’t figure out how to use them here.

I left my car unlocked with valuable stuff inside and someone opened the door and took my stuff.(I know the thief is the bad guy here, but seriously, lock your doors)

Why did you have a fireworks show on the Saturday before the 4th of July instead of on the 4th of July? We should only have fireworks on the 4th of July!

My neighbor doesn’t bring their trash cans in fast enough for me. I’m going to publicly shame them on Next Door because that is so much better than checking to see if they might need help with the task.

I try to stay away from neighborhood posts, but I keep Next Door to stay aware of what is happening and sometimes I get sucked in. Some of these are old complaints from the email list. People just want to find a reason to be unhappy.

I Don’t Like My Neighbors

I know the Bible says you should love your neighbor, but I think it is OK to not like them very much. I’m not talking about the people who actually live right around me. I don’t really know most of them and I like the ones I do know. The neighbors I’m talking about are the ones who are active on the Next Door app and before that the ones who participated a lot on the community email list. It seems like a good portion of them are this guy


The most recent string of posts:

A guy preemptively complaining about how now that it is spring he’s sure his neighbors won’t take care of their lawns and how we all need to take better care of our lawns because he hates when people don’t mow their lawn.

The same guy complaining that his neighbors don’t bring their trash cans in fast enough and then taking pictures of said trash cans the day after trash day and even posting the address of the “offenders”. He did not want to listen to the people who suggested there might be a reason they don’t get the cans immediately and perhaps instead of trying to publicly shame them he should talk to them in person.

Another person making sure everyone knows it is illegal to park across a sidewalk.

Someone complaining that people’s dogs poop in front of their house. They picked it up, but she still thinks it is rude for a dog to poop in front of her house.

Another person chiming in claiming they make sure their dog poops in their yard before taking them for a walk so they won’t poop in front of someone else’s house.

Personally, I’m happy when my dog poops in front of the house with the Pittsburgh Steelers flag out front.

I ranted about this before when someone planned to call the police on someone for walking while black.

They post warnings when people are going door to door.

They are even suspicious of the fire department when they do their annual donation drive.

When someone is robbed at night they blame the victim for being out at night, especially when they are a kid.

It’s just a bunch of miserable people trying to make everyone miserable.

I shouldn’t be surprised. We seem to revel in being miserable these days.
