So, I’m on Nextdoor, for reasons I cannot even begin to explain, but OK.
Earlier this week, a woman a few neighborhoods over posts. She’s been in the hospital for a month, and some things have had to slide – like yardwork, because of the whole IN THE HOSPITAL A MONTH bit.
Well, she’s been getting anonymous hate mail because the grass has grown.
Yes, you read that right. Anonymous hate mail over GRASS.
So, yes, I need to get out of this fucking town for a couple reasons.
Obviously, hate mail over grass. FFS, assholes, get a life beyond your goddamn lawn.
Second – no one knew she was in the hospital because NO ONE KNOWS THEIR NEIGHBORS AROUND HERE. It’s part because people are busy, part because these houses are designed in such a manner that you don’t easily run into your neighbors, and finally, there is ZERO sense of community here. I’m not exaggerating – absolutely zero.
If you don’t have kids who go to school with other neighborhood kids, there is nothing connecting you to anyone else here.
It just blows and I’m tired of it and I need to get away from it.
