I live next door to a farm, with some of the strangest people ever.
They own a rooster. Yes, a rooster, what the hell? It crows at the most random times ever. No, seriously. I’d be sleeping in the middle of the night and it’d crow like some crazy cow and wake me up. Annoying thing is, it never wakes me up in the morning, when it’s supposed to! Stupid, useless rooster!
Sometimes, the rooster gets a little bored, so it gathers up all its friends (like the chicken, oh and who could forget the duck), and so they decide to fly over the fence and invade my backyard where they peck and strut (or waddle) around doing god knows what.
And no, I have never had any intentions to capture and eat it. (You do not know the amount of times I have been asked that question)
We’ve never actually properly talked to them (our neighbours, not the rooster) either. The only time we ever did, it was because they had attempted to climb onto a ladder, over the fence in attempt chop down our bananas. (Yes, like any typical Asian family, we grow banana trees in our backyard. Actually, now that I think of it, they're Asian too... yet they don't have banana tress. No, They have roosters.)
My other neighbours, (you know, the ones on the other side of my house) have this obsession with playing music during the middle of the night. No offence intended, they’re really talented in so many musical areas, but must they sing and bang their drums (along with whatever instrument they have) whilst I’m trying to sleep? I mean, I already have to deal with a rooster!
As you can see, my neighbours and I don’t have a very good relationship. I’m not saying a fight has ever broken out or anything, nothing dramatic has ever happened, but we don’t exactly visit each other and you know, send cookies around or something. (I don’t know, what do friendly neighbours do?) For all I know, they could be complaining about us too.
I don’t know whether this is supposed to be normal or not, but I know others who are actually friendly with their neighbours. What are your neighbours like?
