The results of my neighbor weed whacking his foliage. Straight white trash.View attachment 94778

Looks better than my next door neighbors's yard. In the 14 months or so that we've lived here, he's does an annual "chop down of some weeds" in the front of his yard. and leaves them there all summer. HIs brother lives with him and cuts the grass in a riding mower, has never once weed wacked or cleaned up around places his lawn mower doesn't get to. We have an HOA but AFAIK, they don't care about that. I'll have to get pics once it stops raining.

I think most HOA's now are really just management companies. OUrs is based out of Downers Grove. I can feel assured that they aren't coming to Elgin regularly to look for violations.

His is getting worse and worse all the time. He's been spiraling out of control ever since his mom died a few years ago. She pretty much did the yard word besides mowing. While the place was never going to be in Better Homes and Garden it was at least respectable when I moved in seven years ago. Now he doesn't even mow. His first mower died, so it just sits under his weeping willow. Then he got another shitty used one. It died next to his now rotted out deck. A neighbor has to come run his blade into the dirt every couple weeks. Things seemed to get worse when even his worthless son decided to move out. The kid abandoned his shitty Chrysler 300C in the driveway (against HOA rules) but its butted up really close to the front of the garage. If the expired plate can't be seen from the street then the HOA can't do shit. The dad also keeps air in the tires to skirt the rule. Oh well. He tried to vent to me about how he gets notices for having his trash can in the driveway in which I simply replied "then put it away". He hasn't come over to shoot the shit since then. :LOL: I'm glad I have a privacy fence in back. Given how little trash I see leaving the house and how much I see going in, it has to be a disaster zone. He's either going to get hurt and not be able to live there anymore, or the house will just collapse.

This Joliet or the hood side of Romeoville?

He would fit in well, but he's one of those Hoosiers who would be way too scared to go much further north than Crown Point. He keeps himself strapped even when he's just opening the back door to let his dog take a shit.

Makes your house look better no matter what. Fuck it is his house and he can do as he pleases, but that does look bad.

They have NEVER used a weed eater since we moved here in May of last year. The house behind us has this old wooden fence. They have never cut the grass against that fence if their lawnmower doesn’t cut it. You can see where their property begins.

Not me, my Sister in-law.

WHile I was out this evening, the Wife and kids (per my daughters' request), went to olive garden for dinner. My S-I-L also went along. Before she left their house, a large package came. It was a heavy bookcase, so she was going to have her husband bring it in later. She left to meet up with my Wife and kids for dinner.

When she got home, the bookcase was gone. FUCK PEOPLE!

I can empathize

I have a neighbor one one side who has all weeds, no grass and does nothing to maintain the exterior of the house itself. Rarely see him leave the place except when his boy comes for visitation. WFH.

The other neighbor, he maintains the front of the house but not the sides or back. Tall weeds and a broken down porch deck.

I’ll always be battling the weeds in my yard due to these 2 Jackwagons

Since I’m outside with the dog and he mentioned they’d be out of town this week, more pics of the front of his house. You can see in his front yard where they cut some weeds down and tossed them , it killed some of their grass.

Wrapping up at the other house this evening, go to move the old Suburban back around by the garage, smell a definite strong smell of gas, look under the truck, it's pouring out of the fuel line shortly after the filter. It's clearly rusted out. Why couldn't it have done this earlier in the day and I could've repaired it. Now I gotta wait until next Saturday to fix it.

So, after watching it one more time, the SUV that gets T-boned on the left side of the highway was completely, 100% avoidable.

If a multiple cops fly by you in pursuit of a speeding car, do you NOT slow down and pay very close attention to what the speeding car is doing?

I mean, I'd literally be primed to brake, or swerve, or do something.

What I wouldn't be doing is continuing on my way at 70mph like the road ahead was 100% clear.

The black car that does the T-boning, its driver was basically NOT paying attention at all.

this went down in Fort Lauderdale, so it was either elderly in one of those cars, or both driver were thinking of how they can become thousandaire’s if the accident goes down and hire some shady attorney to represent them.

So, what you're saying is TCG needs to start a Home Owners association?

All residents must own a Sporty car of some type.

I never mentioned cars, I just want him to cut down his fucking weeds. There's a weed in his patio that is at least 8-10 feet tall.

I won't even mention the Honda Accord that is broken and hasn't moved from his driveway since we first looked at this house in late March of 2020. He said it had transmission issues last summer when I asked him about it.
