Tell her that you feel her pain and will try to oblige...oh and by the way...have you heard what that neighbor up the street has been up to???

Then you spin a yarn that will deflect her energy to someone else....I'm just sayin.

or make it a point to be the most obnoxious neighbor in the world. i was given a notice to move my suzuki samurai that runs and is off road only with what is called a black tag. no insurance but registered. it was someone trying to sale thier home. well thier real estate agent. anyway i seen the agent showing the home and i went over and politely told her in private that the vehicle runs and the city has said its ok right where its at. i said i will be leaving it in the drive way and if she would have asked me personally i would have moved it to my back yard. I also explained that if i really wanted to not be nice i would be more then happy to take a week off and make sure i was to rebuild the thing in my driveway but since i liked the home owner i wouldnt do that. she was shocked that i even approached her. i told the owner and he was upset and dropped the agent after the 30 days and went with another agent and i moved the samurai into the back yard even though i was going to take it out that weekend.

but yes id make it a point to be a pain in her butt. but then again i get along with all my neighbors.

Believe me, I'm about one step away from this. The thing is, I don't mind obliging a neighbor if they politly make a reasonable request. This lady is just bat sh#t crazy!

I would, but I'm afraid my foot would get stuck.

Oh yea she sounds like a steaming bag of superbitch. I say you are disinclined to acquiese to her request, then punch her right in the box. Mind your watch, lest it get lost in there!

Go down to your city offices and explain the situation and ask for an extension, don't know about your city but mine generally grants extensions just because you ask.

I left my licensed, insured, running, but ugly as sin Jeep project parked in my dads driveway for one night. I usually parked it in the side yard, but it was late and I was lazy. The neighborhood real estate agent is also the neighborhood beautification nazi. I couldn't prove it was him, but SOMEONE left a post-it note on my windshield saying "Why ruin a nice neighborhood".
