*sigh*

So, remember the dead tree in our neighbor's yard that we've been worried was going to fall on our fence/deck/house? The tree that for 2 years we've been asking him to have removed? Yeah, that one...




Deck? Check.





Fence? Check.




It missed the house and back (glass) door by, quite literally, mere inches. Now we just have the aggravation of dealing with the neighbor and getting it all repaired. He did at least agree to pay for it. He called today to let us know that he'd been over to look and he thought "it would take about $40 in materials to fix."

Um, okay. *sigh*

Oh Boo! That stinks - hope the repairs don't become a royal pain in the booty.

That is awful! And um, your neighbor? What's he on? That does not look that just $40 worth of materials to fix...

Aw, man - that sucks! Your neighbor is a jerk. 1) He should've taken care of it LONG ago, 2) it's going to take more than $40 to fix it and 3) please don't let HIM fix it with his stupid duct tape and scrap pieces of wood he finds along the road.

I hope everything gets patched up soon.

Argh! That makes see red, so BD must be ready to give your neighbor the what-for. I have every confidence that BD will make him fix it correctly, but seriously -- why would your neighbor let it come to this?? And what about when relations become tense and/or deteriorate? What a schmuck. I hope you guys hire someone to fix it and send him the bill.
