There's this family that lives in my complex. They arrived in the spring. And they are the very worst neighbors.
They are obnoxious. They roam the sidewalks as if they own the place. They make a mess. And if I want to pass by them, they give me ugly stares and hiss at me. Yup, the father likes to hiss.
Yes, I'm shaming them on the internet. Here's what they look like:
I've never meant them any harm. But if I come close...
They gather around, ready for a fight. See the kiddo just chillin' on the sidewalk. Just sitting there. My complex houses lots of people, and they like to walk their dogs. But these neighbors object to that sort of activity.
It's so bad, if we see them in our path, we turn around and go around the long way. It's easier than a confrontation. There's no telling how violent they might get.
Yet, somehow the ducks, turtles, and lizards seem to have figured out how to live amongst them. I wonder if they give them as wide a berth as we do.
I hope they leave soon. It'd be nice to take a stroll outside without worrying about running in to them.
