I’m back! Yay!
This week, I want to talk about the neighbor with a punk son….
I try to teach my kids to be polite. I know in the future (in their teens) they will use bad words (f*ck, sh*t, etc.), but right now, I’d like to keep their mouths clean from what we call “cuss words”.
I have a neighbor who lives across the street from us who has a teenage son, I believe he’s 19. He’s a little bit of a punk and thinks he’s a tough guy. For some reason this kid spends all day outside on his phone, cussing up a storm. Every other word is “f*ck this” or “f*ck that”. You get the point. Anyway, this kid, who doesn’t seem to have a job or go to college, had his friends over the other day while we were in the front yard gardening with the kids. His friends came over and started playing Lil’ Wayne (yes, I am familiar with Lil’ Wayne’s music). So while we’re trying to garden, Lil’ Wayne is reminding us about how he was raised in the hood with a girl’s legs around his neck and a chopper in his car. Lovely.
My husband walked over to the neighbor’s house to ask them to lower the music (not turn it off), and they lowered it, but then turned it up again once another friend came over.
I know my kids can’t be protected from the bad words, I’m not a stupid lady and I do understand that they’re going to hear it, but come on, do they really have to hear it in the front yard of their home?
Our neighbor, who has had many visits from the local police force, seems to have no control over her son. Music and yelling at all hours of the day and night isn’t uncommon at their house, and we’ve had some curious “smells” coming from the home when his friends are visiting.
Other neighbors have complained to her, but nothing has changed. Even the cranky old guy next door has made a fuss, but things are still the same.
What should we do? The music outside seems to happen everyday, and it’s loud. I don’t really want my kids knowing what the definition of “doggy style” is, nor do I want them to repeat the phrase “roll a fatty” by the time they’re six.
A few things I saw around Claycord this week:
- Somebody egged the Redbox video rental machine in front of CVS. Thanks, idiot.
- I thought I’d pick up some donuts at Krispy Kreme for my co-workers at the mall. When I arrived to the Willows, there must have been 20 cars waiting in the KK drive-thru. They’re good, but not THAT good.
- I had my gas stolen this week. Some loser punched a hole in my gas tank. I called the police but the front desk lady told me to make a report online. Frustrating!

That’s it for this week.
I hope you all have a wonderful week, see you next Thursday at 2pm!
It’s time for me to go make a pie!
