Default Saw my neighbor in the grocery store tonight

She looked right at me then looked away.

No "Hi", no wave, no smile, nothing. Like wtf.

Coming up on 14 years living here and we're the OGs. People come and go but there's very few left from when these places were built, and she is one of them, as are we.

In all this time she's never once said hi, waved, smiled, acknowledged me in any way.

I talk to her husband occasionally and her brother-in-law quite a bit. He was waiting for her out in his truck and I waved to him as I came out of the store and he waved back.

My feelings are not hurt. LOL. I don't have any. I just find it odd that you can live next door to someone for that many years and never acknowledge them. Ever.

I know I'm ugly, but.....

Not her.

They had a POS Oldsmobile with a broken exhaust for years.

I think I know who the complainer is.

Block party isn't happening, but in normal times I submit the request and submit to the city, my next door neighbor is in charge of permitting. I have never had a problem.

I talk to one neighbor about twice a month, another once every 2 months. The rest can eat shit. Hate them all. Complete "all about me" inconsiderate assholes. One shit bag that knows I don't like him, waved at me at the mailbox one day. I looked at him, locked the mailbox and walked away. Fk him. My friends will tell you how out of character that is. I like everyone, but if you're a shit bag, I have no use for you.

If there had been a table there, I'd have put my hands on it. (old CFOT joke)

My next door neighbor has a key to our house. He's great. The ones across the street are nice, the guy found our cat Eddie who got hit by a car and was barely still alive and brought him to me with tears in his eyes. Eddie didn't make it but he still tells me he misses the little guy. The couple that lives behind us lets us come over when there's a tornado warning. They have a walkout basement that faces away from the path of usual tornadoes so it's perfect. We'll bring a bottle or two of wine and wait it out. The rest of them, I barely would recognize them in public.
