My immediate next door neighbour just did some painting work to their house the last few days. When they first started out, I wondered if they were going to inform us about it since the painter would need to come over to our side to finish off the painting work on our side.
It is only courteous to do that, but, this neighbour is one neighbour who is ignorant of the word courteous. They seem to live in a world of their own, just our luck, we happen to have them as our neighbour. *sigh*
When they moved in some years back, they did some major renovation to their house which included building a decorative fencing that separated us.
They never informed us that they were going to tear down the chain link fence that separated us. I came back one day after office to find the chain link fence gone. When I asked what was going on only did they explain that they intended to build a decorative fence. Can’t they at least be courteous enough to at least inform us that they were pulling down the fence so that we can be ready to come home to a naked front yard?
For several days before they built the fence, our house was open to intruders, and we were at work all day. How inconsiderate could they be?
A few months after that major renovation, we did another renovation to the back of the house. Again, I came back home one evening to find a man in my backyard building up a 9’ high brick wall. They had torn down the chain link fence again during our absence, and a worker was already building a brickwall parting us. How can someone be so inconsiderate?
And now, the painter has left two days ago, and they have left our side of the fence looking horribly like what you see here in the photo. They could have at least discussed with us and let us know what they intended to do. We could have shared the cost of the painting work for the portion that is on our side.
If they are so stingy that they don’t want to paint our side of the fence, they could have at least done a good job of the painting work instead of leaving the painting work looking so clumsy, horrible, ugly and unslightly. *sigh*
I feel like taking a red paint and painting my side of the fence and leaving ugly traces like what they did to our side of the fence, and see what their reaction will be. We have been tolerant enough of them. Even the neighbour on the other side too was not spared with their ugly painting work, and that neighbour had only just 3 months ago did painting work on their house too, but did a good job of the shared fencing.
Uurrghh! I really am going to get a RED can of paint soon!
