Angry billionaires make disturbing neighbours
From blaring music to blocking beaches, the super wealthy are bad at sharing with others
(...) Third, they can afford it. Going to court is very expensive, and potentially ruinous for losers without deep pockets, but those costs are a minor irritation for billionaires. The battle between Mr Bacon and Mr Nygard has involved at least 25 lawsuits in five jurisdictions and racked up tens of millions in bills.

They tend to have lawyers on call, along with advisers who make their living from business and legal contests (the US president is a particular devotee of routinely suing rivals and others). If you are used to taking fights for corporate control to the Delaware chancery court, it feels only natural to serve an injunction on your neighbour.

The effect of wealth on willingness to battle in public can be seen elsewhere. The number of contentious probate cases in UK courts has risen sharply in recent years, partly because the estates have grown in value as a result of property riches. The more money available, the more work for lawyers and judges.

So there will continue to be entertainment value in the neighbourly fights of billionaires. Take someone who is used to winning at all costs, focus them on a domestic resentment and you get some very odd behaviour. Mr Gross, for example, was accused of spraying fart smells around his former marital home in a 2018 divorce battle.

“I went to a drugstore and found smelly shit. I don’t know why I did that,” he reflected to the FT. Well, search me. Suffice it to say that the qualities that create great fortunes can also make terrible neighbours.

We are actually the only white people around as far as I can tell, but the neighbors don't seem to mind having a honky around and treat us kindly so I guess it is alright!{#Lol}

I've had neighbors that don't even hear their dogs bark all night even when they're home.

My neighbors behind me, who have lived there for at least 15 years, have let cats breed with abandon for years. {#Eh}
I used to get the semi friendly ones that wandered into my yard and take them to a place that did free neutering and spaying.
I even adopted a few of them... they still like it better here even though I took them to get cut. They really like my trees and grass, compared to the giant cat box from where they came from.

Well they finally quit making house payments and left the house (pigs). And they left behind 19 cats!  And 4 very small kittens. Idiots!
So, along with 4 other neighbors, we have been trapping cats with city supplied traps.
These poor cats are so inbreed, they are almost all crossed eyed and just in bad shape.
Why are some people just too stupid?

Dear Neighbor,

I am sure that you are unaware that when you are gone at night, your dogs bark continuously.  This has caused us many sleepless nights and much distress.  We would like to know if you can please keep your dogs in the house when you are gone at night so they won’t disturb us.  We don’t want to cause any trouble, but this is really a problem for us.

Thank you,

Your neighbors

I have one you can borrow.  It's been "used" and still smells a bit.  Plus there is a shoestring that somehow got twisted around in the input bin.
