    Sooo as many of you know, I recently made the move to Canton, and absolutely love it so far. For the most part we are surrounded by people our own age, who like to have a good time after work/on the weekends ect. Coming from Downtown SS its definitely been a move towards the positive. My house is older, needs some work done on it, nothing crazy but we like it and the location so much that it could be 10x shittier and we would still love it here. There is only 1 issue so far living in Canton. TRASHY NEIGHBORS

    These 2 families live across the street and occupy 2 row homes but (i believe) are part of the same family. We have only been here 3 weeks and already we have heard the (morbidly obese) wife of one house screaming at her husband on the porch 3 times. Most recently, Sunday afternoon when she told him to "Pack his s*** and get his worthless P.O.S. self out!!" We watched from our living room as she hit him with a rolled up magazine as he winced sitting down on the front steps, outweighed by rougly 150 lbs, there wasnt much he (or I for that matter) could have done.

    Fast forward to Monday. My Gf and I had the day off, so we woke up around 11 and walked our dogs down to the water, something we do everyday. As we get back, the trashy woman's kids are kicking the side of a car parked in front of my house. Luckily for them, it wasnt my car, but eventually a plastic quarter panel falls off and they start kicking it in the street. They see us staring at them from our front porch and instead of looking embarrassed or sorry, the run across the street and immediately try to start petting my dog. My oldest is around a year old, and takes time warming up to people, so when the chunky one with sausage fingers put his hands in front of his face, Magnus tried to lunge at him. I had him on the leash tight and pulled him away in time, but even if he had bit the kid it wouldnt have hurt/broke skin. Well he obviously shrieks in horror, runs across the street and presumably tells his mom that my dog bit him, which didnt happen at all.

    The fat whale comes out and just stares across the street at us, trying to use the same intimidation we saw on display on Easter Sunday against her meek husband. The other kids (not as fat and delicious looking) continue petting our dogs and go inside after about 5 minutes or so.

    Needless to say, we know we are in for a fight with these people, and at the very least see them as a source of possible entertainment moving forward. Lets hear about your Horrible Neighbors Suque, and feel free to give me some hilarious adice/ideas about mine moving forward!

    Rule number of dog ownership, if anyone asks whether your dog bites, no matter how docile the animal is, never say no. I always say, "She hasn't yet."

    As for neighbors, I live in a townhouse community. All our back decks are right next to each other. Very cool if you are social. Sucks if you are private. I like it. Very nice and well kept. HOA runs a tight ship, which I'm good with because they keep everything nice and clean.

    Neighbor to the right is a single mother of three. She seems to have an on-again, off-again boyfriend who looks like a kid-toucher. Probably is.

    On the other side I have a very nice couple in their 50's. All seems fine and they go to Deep Creek Lake every other weekend. The only oddity to them is every once in a while, they have a light-skinned black girl in her 20's show up (they are white) with what appears to be her son. I am trying my darnedest to figure that one out.

    Two doors down is my chiropractor steroid dealer. I think they are in the process of getting a divorce. Their house is soon to be on the market as a short sale.

    That said, we don't have any of the white trash goings on you seem to be having.

    I didn't have any problems with neighbors until a couple of weeks ago. Next door was a nice old couple, but a few months ago the husband died. Well a few weeks ago, apparently one of her granddaughters decided to move in with her, along with her baby daddy and two brats.

    The woman is total white trash, about 5'10" 300#, and always wears a skin-tight t-shirt so you can see every roll. She yells at her kids every morning starting at 8AM. They also have an annoying little yip-yip dog. I think they used to have another one that they would drop off at the house and leave tied outside all day, no matter what the weather. In the past week the kids have torn apart our one flowerbed, thrown toys onto our front lawn, and raced up and down our driveway on their bikes, barely missing our cars that were parked in it.

    It seems like everybody on the block is annoyed with them already. I'm just hoping that either the grandmother gets fed up with them and kicks them out, or at least that they don't inherit the house when she dies.

  • MJ6964

    Yeah i mean im not even sure he wanted to bite the kid, I think his fingers look alot like those snausages treats.

    Im used to trashy people, half of my family is from Arkansas/Oklahoma. I think this is a new breed of trash, however.

  • strOterp

    No one lives on one side of me and the other side is a youngish woman who apparently doesn't mind the occasional punk-rock blowout at 4am on a Friday night.

  • I didn't have any white trash neighbors growing up (and I live in Hagerstown), actually they only built the houses next to me when I was about 14 or so and they have been mainly used for foreign (Brazilian/Frenchies) families that work at the Mack manufacturing headquarters close by. But recently one of my neighbors was arrested on serious embezzlement charges after he stole nearly $800,000 from the company. Crazy shit.

    I have to say rolling out to work to find a US Marshals Fugitive Task Force in front of my steroid neighbor's house last year was a little out-of-character for the neighborhood.

    I have the Virginia Tech Playboy girl of the year on one side that's my age (23). She has an older sister(from the dad's first marriage) who had a kid back when she was 18, shes now in her later 20s. The parents also had a late daughter. Now their grand daughter and daughter are only something like 5 years apart. Awesomely hilarious household. Really do love every person in that family no matter how crazy they are.

    The other side is a pair of SES parents and their coddled children. One got into wvu, got kicked out first semester for too many pot violations and now is getting his CC degree, whatever its called. The other kid not much brighter who did a lot of plays and the like somehow got into the Naval Academy despite not playing any sports and not being in any AP classes. Didn't go. Now goes to some liberal arts college in PA. These parents make some decent money, but none of them drive a car from this decade and they keep their RV on the side of the house despite HOA trying to enfore something about it.

    Oh and our whole neighborhood has the same exact mailbox. It's creepy communist-esque.

    My Florida neighbors are even more hilarious but not my current ones so Ill save them for another time.

  • MJ6964

    Plan #1 will go into effect shortly. The next time they are throwing a football around in the street, im going to suggest one of them do a crossing pattern and lead them right into their moms Cutlass.

  • I have a neighbor who steals beers out of the young kids coolers on our street after he goes on shirtless morning runs. This same neighbor fired the gardener that we both use. He thinks the gardener cheated me out of money. I'm not that old to know that he fired the gardener because he wouldn't work topless and spray himself with the hose per my neighbor's request.

    Thank you for putting things in perspective for me, it can always get worse.

  • Hey JMU6375

    when i visited my then gf in grad school at South Carolina one of her neighbors used to exercise by running up and down the apartment steps at like 2 in the morning. The neighbor on the other side liked to stay in shape by beating his wife.

  • One of my next-door neighbors is a gay Duke fan. Beat that!

    Nice guy though - he's a good neighbor.

  • I have a neighbor who is a 6'3" 16o lb+ behemoth who has a crush on me. She went to my gf's work and started asking co-workers about our relationship, and then lamented that she should be with me instead of my gf. Every time I leave my apartment she seems to be coming out her door at the same time. If I stop posting, please call the police.

  • Are you still going for the TS clearance? The FBI will probably interview them for your SSBI, so tread cautiously.

  • On one side is a couple who were pretty cool until last summer when all of the sudden the wife stopped talking to us or acknowledging us.

    The conversation with the husband went like this:

    Me: Hey, did I do something to piss the wife off?
    Him: no, not really.
    Me: oh, okay, so there's nothing going on?
    Him: well, you may want to close your windows at night.
    Me: Huh?
    Him: You leave your windows open a lot at night....
    Me: Yeah....?
    Him: When you're with your gf.
    Me: Oh. OH! Shit. Are you kidding me?

    Apparently we were loud a few times last summer and the woman's never going to speak to us again. Their house is like twenty or so feet from my bedroom window, so it must have been bad. Luckily there's some shrubs and shit so people can't see in.

    My other neighbors are ok, they're pretty boring and nerdy. Their kids are going to get the shit kicked out of them on the regular. Apparently I haven't done anything to embarrass myself with them.

    One of the great things about living in bmore was the mixture of really old ethnic white people, crazy hood rats and and young twenty somethings.

    I had fond memories of living there until I found out my former neighbor was beaten into a coma and died after a year.

  • My neighbors are a decent husband and wife in their 50's. They have a son and daughter, both recently graduated from college and on their own. The husband is a little nerdy and a lawn Nazi (mows 5-6 times per week), but whatever, completely harmless. The wife is more of a free spirit. Shortly after they moved in, we learned that she had been arrested for sex with a minor/statutory rape. WTF! Turns out she had had multiple "encounters" with her daughter's 14 year old bf when she was in hs. The 14 yo ultimately decided not to press charges, otherwise she would be a registered sex offender. Creepy. Just goes to show, even the blandest family might have a sordid past.

  • SATerp

    Some of the advantages of living in an older community (most houses built in the 60s - 70s), are the shade from full grown trees, and the quiet, non-embarrassing older neighbors.

  • We've got big time white trash across the street and down a house, I don't even bother with them. 2 houses up is a great older couple that are nice as can be. But I have NOTHING in common with them and you can only talk about the weather and the way the road was back in the day for so long. Our go to couple is younger and moved in when we did. They watch our dogs, I cut their grass etc. But I nicknamed them The Coustanzas for a reason, they fight like George's parents.

  • My street in Canton

    []Single guy in massive end row house, haven't met the guy. His maid is always smoking black and milds while she is waiting for her bf (sancho) to pick her up.
    []poss gay 55 year old dude who loves to show us that he still works out by walking his dog (bichon) shirtless and running shorts. Drives a Saturn sky convertible, his house is decorated incredibly well. I'm certain he lives with his beard.
    []Dorothy, has lived there since the 40s, she's always looking out her window and offering the mail man a drink of water, she lives for those few minutes.
    []2 Hopkins Residents, real nice guys but they always @ the hospital etc.
    []Couple that just moved to London and are Renting out to a single mom with a fat kid that loves to practice his bo staff skills in the back patio.
    []A guy that I believe is dead or in Hospice, haven't seen anyone in that house since last March
    []me + fiance
    []a 40+ year old couple with a toddler... no idea what thats about. But they own an Audi, a BMW and a mini-cooper for the 2 of them, even tho he is mostly gone away on business every other weekend.
    []Old Polish lady with the largest handicap parking spot in the city, she parks a car there thats older than me. Barely uses it.
    []And then..... TRASHY NEIGHBORS

    Straight up white trash/dundalk/chainsmoking POS family: a degenerate old grimey man that works nights, his crack head wife with an incredibly hot but slutty daugther and what appears to be that girls daughter. They are always smoking 100s in front of her or in their busted ass car. I'm fairly certain they sell drugs from their house or the slut daughter has/had a drug dealing bf b/c of how often cars would park right out front or in the alley, walk in and out after 2 mins, on any night.

  • I just moved to Falling Waters WV 3 weeks ago. Have only met one of my neighbors who is an older lady who lives by herself, seems realatively nice. We have 2 acres of land so the neighbors aren't that close to begin with. I wont deny that I'm part redneck who hunts, fishes and the like. But I'm nothing close to some of the trash you see in WV. Our sub-division is pretty nice with decent size homes that are well kept. There is also the few that look like there yard is a fucking salvage yard. I've seen some pretty trashy people walking around the development and I'm sure it's only a matter of time before my Maryland flag and "Terps Football, I'm In Are You?" sign gets destroyed. If/When this happens I won't be a pussy like some of you, I'll send my wife over to deal with them!!!

  • my neighbors grab the kids and run indoors when they see me walk outside. just kidding.

    I have lawyers and doctors mostly for neighbors. Though next door on one side is a double, and the 89 year old woman owner lives in half, and 3 teach for america boys live in the closer half. They have finally been won over by my charm and go play volleyball with me, eat dinner etc.

    On the other side are a young couple engaged to be married. only 23. underwater robotics engineer who works for his dad's company. They are nice and I have had them over for dinner and beers a couple of times and they have had me over a few times. we both own beagles and they play together some.

    My older neighbors are a bit boring-the ones my age. they wont play sports or do much except work, golf, and drive their kids to school, soccer etc. I have tried to get the 15 year old boy who lives across the street to play volleyball, but he seems shy. shrug.

  • We haven't moved into our new Gambrills home but have been there for the past week or so renovating the place. So it's tough to get a read on the neighbors.

    Having a corner lot will be a plus though as I only have one direct neighbor. However, the folks from across the street park their extra vehicles along one side of the street that corresponds to our yard. Not sure what to think of that yet.

    However, the other day, my extremely redneck/backwoods uncle who owns a landscaping business cut my lawn with his riding lawnmower. As he was cutting the grass on the road part (where extra cars are parked) the neighbor who owns the 70s Mustang came out and inspected the car to make sure nothing was damaged. Of course nothing was! Apparently they got on the phone afterward and talking to who knows...but that's what I heard from my uncle.

    I'm about 100% sure we'll be the youngest owners in the area so I hope that somehow works in our favor. But I bet we'll be the "trash" those people are talking about soon, lol.
