I'VE HAD IT!!!!

we have seen this city go downhill in the past several years! it makes us depressed because we are trapped in this small house in this looser city! the past several years i have felt annoyed with the neighbors because they don't think twice about helping each other out! summer with lawns, fall with leaves and winter with snow....they just blow the snow/grass onto our lawn...but i can deal with that! But last week when we got loaded with snow, and everyone was stuck in their driveways, no one even bothered to help us get out! they just go about their business like we don't exist! (perhaps we really don't exist!?) then the single dumb guy next door gets stuck in his drive and two neighbors help him get out!!! in the winter a neighbor has been known snow blow his walks and drive. in the summer when he drives his lawnmower over the curb and breaks it, we have seen neighbors over there helping to fix them! (yes, there have been more than one! he is really hard on things) or lending a mower....Well this morning *I* get stuck in the drive...Dh is already gone to work...and i cant get in or out of the drive! i decide to leave it and wait till it gets a bit warmer out before i go out to shovel. it was just far enough in the drive to clear the street, so i was fine. So later I am out there trying to shovel the snow away from the tires (with a sore back...) and the guy across the street just goes about his business....didn't even bat an eye at a "woman" trying to get unstuck! NO ONE bothered to help me get out!! (Except Timmy!) This just about ices the cake! As i age, i find i have no use for snow!!! (and maybe neighbors......) Off my soapbox.....
