About a year ago, we had some new neighboors move in next door. "We" being me and my family which consists of an elderly grandmother, a schizophrenic mother and uncle and an older brother. To be honest with you, we live in a nice house but due to our families current circumstances (my uncle went life threatening surgery) we haven't paid the best attention to our home. Please don't get me wrong, we are by no means "raggies" but our lawn gets mowed once every two weeks and we are lacking a flower bed due to ... well lack of time.... we're too busy running around to the hospital. Anyhow, back to the neighboors- It's a middle aged couple. The man seems very nice and respectful. His wife however, is distant and cold. I didn't mind her cold shoulder- she's like that with all our neighboors not just us. But on Saturday, I was out in my backyard trying to relax when I overheard her cursing like the devil about our home. I came in the house and tried my best to shrug it off. But then over the past few days everytime she goes outside, she stares at our house and makes snide little comments. Granted we are not the Brady Bunch but my family consists of two mentally ill people... and causing trouble for them to make herself feel better is pretty pathetic. So tonight my mother confronted me and told me how this woman tries to intimidate her by staring at her. So I walked around to the side of my house and noticed she was in her kitchen with the window open- I said "I am just looking to see if the women next door is staring at our house again. Doesn't she know it's rude to stare. Too bad some people cannot mind their own buisness." Did I do the right thing?
