I came to a realization

This 4th of July weekend I came to many realizations. Well...I kinda already knew it but I'm willing to admit it now. I have an addiction. That's right, I said it. I'm an addict. I'm addicted to:
Burger King Cheesy Tots...the 12 pack.
And...
Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream

Someone help me!!!!! My thighs are screaming for mercy. 

Also, I came to the decision that my neighbors are certifiable crazy. I mean really. I've mentioned them before HERE. Well yesterday on the holiday they decided to have a yarn sale. Yes...a yard sale. My house is on the corner of the block. They live to my left. Well the only extra street parking is on the side beside my house. I come home from work and the first thing I see is about 20 tables set up on their teeny, tiny lawn. The second thing I see is that there's no parking available and some douche is blocking my garage entrance. I let it go...I go inside my house and forget about their rudeness. 

A few hours go by and we're ready to grill out. Well the only thing that seperates our back yards is a metal fence that's waist high. I didn't notice before but their yard sale extends to their back yard. So....the ENTIRE time we're grilling out we have complete strangers asking us how we're doing, hinting for free food or just rudely watching us eat. Awesome. After the food was done, we basically moved inside to escape. I let it go...

Once night fall comes. I swear they must have let off about 800 dollars in fire works. Kid you not! They let off so many fireworks I could smell the gunpowder from inside my house. No windows or doors open either! Seriously....I am not in their fan club...

Oh man! No one better mess with me at a cookout! I am there for the burgers and beer. If a stranger wants to stare at me then we are going to have a throw down - not the Bobby Flay kind! You were a very good sport. Glad you are not in their fan club. So inconsiderate.

Wow, that is insanity! I hope you returned the hints for free food with attempting to barter food for sale items! (unless it was all junk -- keep that food for yourself!) ;)

I hate rude neighbors... I am lucky enough to live in a neighborhood of recluses... I only know one of my neighbor friends and you will rarely see any body other than us outside our house... It is GREAT!!

Mrs. G.I Joe said...

WOW, the not being able to park in my own spot would have really dug under my skin! And I hate when dogs beg for food, let alone people! You are a strong woman for taking all of that;p

Katie said...

who has a YARN sale??? What freaks! I wonder if they go to my gym...

Lisette said...

wow! that is SO rude! I'm sorry that you have crappy neighbors. At least you didn't give in and give their "clients" free food.

I've never tried those w/ chocolate. I'm REALLY tempted to try it. :D

Young Mom/Wife said...

UGH! I have dealt with crazy, weird, rude neighbors before...except we were pretty positive they were drug dealers. At least you always have an interesting story to tell.

JP said...

MMMMmmm that ice cream is SO tasty! But a yarn sale? That is just strange, especially on America's birthday!

Samantha the ArmyWife said...

yeah, people suck sometimes. =( I sorry.

The cheesy tots don't look very apealing to me. But then I'm not a big fan of really cheesey things. BK chicken fries on the other hand, yum!

jlc said...

Crazyyyyyyy!!! And haha! I have to laugh at the B&J -- isnt everyone addicted to that??




I still cant get over how many firework stands there are here in Texas -- we just saw one last night that said "BUY 1 -- get 11 FREE!" Seriously?? 11? Can't they just say 12 for one?

d.a.r. said...

Wow that is awkward!!!

And that B&J flavor is to die for!!!

Abbie said...

So on top of you being aggravated by the fact that you spent your 4th of July WORKING, you come home to those morons and their stupid rummage sale?! Oh you poor thing you definitely have my sympathies!!

Erin said...

Wow they sound like some super class folks.

A Little Pink... said...

A yard sale on the 4th of July?! I can't decide if they're really weird or really smart... I'm leaning towards weird though!
I have not tried either of those things... I am definitely interested! Hashbrowns and cheese? Yes, please! :)

Karie said...

You poor thing. haha. I'm addicted to fast food and mexican, by the way. It's sickening. I feel your pain!

Ugg bad neighbors suck! And the fire works thing would have set me off (pardon the pun) I would have gone over there..

We had bad neighbors once that would THROW BARBELLS AT EACH OTHER, I mean every other week we had to call the police to make sure one did not kill the other
