The Dumb Get Dumber

Jan 23, 2019

Woah, what a wild week!

As you heard in my last blog post Aggravating People my neighbors are building a wall. A very much so welcome addition, but the goal was to keep their pets in their yard so they no longer have to continually trespass onto our property unannounced.

They have failed this simple mission, even with a fence company present. Dumb.

See, the fella of the house, or petulant child depending on how you see it, is a city electrician. Apparently that means he is also a general contractor, architect, and presumably expert on all things built. He has spent the past 24 hours standing over and watching the fence crew and giving them specific instructions on how to build a fence. To the fence company people who do this daily. Yikes.

Long story short. He has them build the fence with elongated fence posts so the bottom of the fence is not on the ground, but about 1′ above ground close to the line of the concrete retaining wall that is our property line. Problem being, now his cats will get UNDER that fence and sandwich themselves between our two fences. Perhaps he has plans of wood or something below stretching 100+ feet of fence? I can’t imagine you go to all this trouble to then give yourself an even larger home project. The dumb get dumber, you can’t make this shit up.

Adding to the amusement, the fence is not remotely even. There are peaks of height where you can see it running against our fence which is mounted into the concrete retaining wall and 100% level. The new fence has a variable of 2-8″ post to post. They’re here today to finish the last few sections but I’m not sure correcting that is part of the plan. I can visually see their yard UNDER the bottom of the fence panels because of how poorly this was constructed. Which is fine it means a higher fence and they could go to the moon for allI care.

Unfortunately just like in conversation about trespassing without a text or doorbell ring, they are once again missing the point. They’re cats are still at this time, going to get out.

Not my problem. The wall is almost here. Goodbye dummies.
