Property Lines

Officer Cynical: "How can I help you ma'am?"

Mrs. Paxil: "My neighbor is building a fence, and I don't like it."

Officer Cynical: "OK. Is it a problem with construction noise early in the morning or late at night?

Mrs. Paxil: "No, his fence is too close to mine."

Officer Cynical: "You mean he's building the fence on your property?"

Mrs. Paxil: "No. But I like to walk around the end of my fence and along the other side. If he puts his fence up, I won't be able to do that."

Officer Cynical: "I see. Well, as long as he's building on his own property, I don't see what I can do."

Mrs. Paxil: "But I live here. Don't I have the right to walk wherever I want?"

Okay, this is nuts. Is the lady serious? She really believes she has the right to walk anywhere?

And we now know why the neighbor decided he needed a fence.

That's why her neighbor is putting up the fence....

Having just built a fence because of rotten neighbors, as long as local ordinances are followed and if the appeals process has expired, he is allowed to build his fence.
