So, I called the New Gestapo. . .

That’s what I call the Neighborhood Association. I phoned them about said “DEAD” plant. Of course I got no satisfaction. If I really want to feel better, I should just go outside and pull the damn plant out manually and get my anger and frustration out. But then do they win? I don’t know. I really do not know if it is dead. I swear it flowered about 3 weeks ago. When my lawn man Ramon comes on Thursday, I will ask him if it is dead, and will ask him to pull it if it is, if in passion in my OCD condition I do not go out at 3:00 am and do it in a fit of pique!

When I spoke to the oh, so nice woman on the phone, who did nothing to help me but give me web sites to write letters to, you can never talk to live people anymore, oh I guess I’m showing my crabby age!

I, in my infinite wisdom asked about the toilet paper in the trees, and she said I could write another e-mail to another person complaining and write their address, which I will not do. What I was trying to say, is do they not have bigger fish to fry than a plant that is trying to survive the heat of the summer?? No, she didn’t get it, so their job is now my job, plus I’m not a squealer. . .so I’ll just leave well enough alone.

Oh well, move on another battle lost by the LITTLE GUY!!

  1. Poor thing. I am so happy that I do have to deal with a homeowners association. Where I live, I do all the work so, if I am unhappy, I have no one to talk to about it but me. 🙂

      I never wanted one . . .it’s just kind of the way it is in neighborhoods in Arizona! Oh, well! The MAN and his power again, trying to control the people!! Don’t even get me started!! Ugghhhh!!!


  2. I think it is better to go in sweet as peaches just picked from a Georgia tree. If that doesn’t work, then I lower my guns and raise hell.

    Why pay an association fee if no one is doing anything to help. Maybe you need to address your problems at the next meeting. Go in prepared to be nice and sweet but make sure that you have some people on your side.

    It would be helpful to get out in the neighborhood and talk to people. See what their feelings are and what they are disturbed concerning the board. Once you get the facts from enough people, you are armed and dangerous.

    Good luck.

    Have you considered joining the ranks of the “new gestapo”? My husband and I are building a home in a neighborhood that has a POA, property owners association. We have already atteneded one of the meetings so as to “get to know” the people who are interpreting the association rules. Also, just like with any governing body, if you don’t like the way things are…try getting involved in some way that will make the system better. Best of luck with the “plant” situation.
