A Dallas-area homeowner has recently gained publicity for putting up a for sale sign for her house that reads “HOUSE FOR SALE BY OWNER BECAUSE MY NEIGHBOR’S A DOUCHEBAG.”
Lisa Price, the owner of the suburban home in Farmers Branch, Texas, is looking to relocate and sell her house due to an ongoing agitating relationship with her next-door neighbor that has a history of being a total prick.
According to Fox 4 News, the friction between the pair started shortly after Price’s new neighbor, a renter, moved in about six months ago and began complaining that Price’s two dogs were causing noise disturbances during sleeping hours.
After believing they’d solved the initial conflict, the new neighbor passive-agressively made the tensions worse by secretly installing security cameras both outside and inside of his rented house. According to the report, these cameras were angled to capture footage of a bedroom in Lisa Price’s bedroom, along with the spot in their backyard where her daughter frequently sunbathes.
To cap it all off, the unnamed neighbor ordered the police to give Lisa Price a citation for not properly taking care of her aforementioned loud dogs. This act of extreme petty was the straw that broke the camel’s back so hard that Price felt the need to move entirely.
The “BECAUSE MY NEIGHBOR’S A DOUCHEBAG” for sale sign has attracted many a curious passerby to stop what they’re doing and take a quick picture of the bizarre siting. There’s an additional identical sign in the backyard, which is connected to a golf course.
“I don’t know, I just think it’s very poor judgement. Very poor taste,” said one golfer who stopped his 18 holes to check out the site.
On why she decided to put up this bold sign, Price finished by saying, “I mean, we were just hoping that the sign would maybe make him realize that he’s pushed us too far and [to] back up on us,” Price said. “We didn’t know what else to do.”
I don’t know either of these people involved, nor do I plan on knowing either of these people. With that said, from the impartial reporting on this story, I’ve gotta say that neither of the have the first ounce of respect or trust from me as functioning adults who contribute to society. At the end of the day, the new neighbor needs to recognize that putting cameras up like that makes you a certified creep, and this Price lady needs to learn that just because something is allowed under the First Amendment and highlights you in all your white trash glory on the late local news doesn’t mean you should do it.
But hey, to each their own. .
