Neighbors | And It Continues

I can not believe I am about to write this, but I am.

T.J. had only gotten home around 6:00pm and had enough time to help finish up G’s bath and help get her settled for bed. He hadn’t eaten yet and we were looking forward to sitting down and enjoying the rest of Valentine’s day together.

On Valentine’s Day, the day supposedly filled with love, hugs and kisses we had a knock at the door at 7:45pm. We hardly know anyone around here and certainly don’t know anyone who will be knocking at our door in the evening. I was already thinking a big WTF?!

T.J. went and answered the door, I continued to remain comfortable on the couch getting ready to eat one of the yummy cupcakes or cookies he had brought home for me.

Then I hear two voices, of men, police officers. WHAT?!? Not again, and we hadn’t called them this time so this wasn’t off to a good start. I hear the officers asking for me…”Sir, I need to speak with your wife” and they kept repeating it over and over. T.J. shut the door and stood outside. He didn’t understand what they wanted with me, but certainly didn’t want me to get worked up. {That didn’t end up working so well for me.}

Turns out our lovely neighbors, remember them, called the police and told them that I was taking pictures of them throughout the day. Um, yea, sure. Just what I want to do in my spare time with a toddler to chase around at five months pregnant on Valentine’s day. Why wait until the late evening to call the police if this had been going on throughout the day? I’ll tell you why, because they want to stir up our household and hope to wake up our sleeping child. T.J. was like, “whoa, whoa, whoa, I called the police regarding these people just last Saturday because they broke our door and threatened to sick their untrained, vicious, pit-bull on us”. The officers where unaware of that incident and suddenly shed a new light on the whole situation.

The still wanted to see me so T.J. ended up calling me over. They asked me if I took photos of these people and naturally I said no. I mean, its a ridiculous lie. First, why would I want photos of people I can’t stand and second its not against the law to take photos of anyone or anything.

So, here we are sharing our Valentine’s day with some of New York’s finest for absolutely no reason. In fact, the neighbors who called were standing on their deck, having a smoke and watching our conversation. I guess this is how they like to spread the love?

Clearly they are pissed that we called the police first and want to have the final word. This is not over and we will not continue to be bullied.
