I May Have Been Wrong

I recently wrote about my new neighbors.

I may have gotten something wrong.  I can't say for sure, but its definitely under review.

In that blog post, I wrote that there was no "puff, puff, give" going on with them.  Well, apparently, there is with someone, just not in the garage.  Its in the backyard.

After school on Friday, I gave the girls a Popsicle, and told them they could eat it outside.  Score for me.  They go chill out side and don't make a mess in here.  I opened the blinds and a window so that I could see and hear them.   A few minutes later I decided to join them.  I walk out, and it nearly knocked me over.

Now, I am no pot aficionado, but having gone to a few concerts back in the day, I'm pretty sure I know it when I smell it.  I think that was it.  Our garages are not attached, and you have to walk through the yard to get to them.  I walked past The Girls, into the garage, and started sniffing.   I couldn't smell it at all.  That meant someone was actually sitting in their backyard, enjoying a little chronic, and hoping no one would notice.  I was shocked.  I mean, had I had the presence of thought in the moment, I would have run,or at least waddled quickly, upstairs to either of the girls' bedrooms to look out the windows.  I could probably have seen who it was, if they were still hanging out there.
Instead, in a very passive aggressive manor, I just started talking out loud about how rude it was, and more importantly, how strong the order was.  I mean, they must be total idiots to think no one would either notice or care.  I did both!

I'm pissed.  I don't appreciate pot smoking right next to my children's toys.  I really don't appreciate the potential contact high.  We don't smoke pot, and I don't plan on starting now.  I absolutely don't want to smell it, or have my girls smell it.  I really take offense the the fact that they would break the law right there under my nose.  Not only that, but I already eat enough in this pregnancy, being on a "See food" diet and all.  I don't need anyone making that any worse.  I get a little worked up about somethings, if you can't tell.  Probably the reason that all Bob Marley music makes me really mad, but that is for another post.

So, here we are, in a new house, with new neighbors, but what's old is new again.  Just like the first set of neighbors we had when we moved here, someone is smoking up right next to us.  I'm not sure how I get so lucky all the time.  Maybe I just notice it more than most people since it makes me crazy.  I'm not really totally sure which neighbors did it either, and I hope I never find out.  If you are going to break the law, just keep it to your selves, please, people.  I don't need to be a part of that.

Would their home be considered Federal Property? Methinks the housing dept would be very interested in knowing this. Add that to the underage driving and you have a very strong case for CPS. What bugs me most is that they wouldn't immediately head inside once they heard your girls come out.

It is Federal Property, and I could certainly report someone, but as my husband pointed out, I'm not really sure who it was. We live in a tight little row now with very close neighbors (our yards are all the width of our houses on this side so even closer than before), and it could have traveled from a couple of yards on either side. I'm really pissed about it being so close to the girls, too. We actually have a security patrol and if it happens again, I'll be calling them. They can sniff out the real culprit and take care of it.
