Where we are staying now we met an unmarried couple and her school age daughter and elderly aunt.They had a dog,that actually his dog.They were friendly aunt I could see that she was very controlling.They gave us rides,invited us to the girls birthday party,over for dinner.But,when my daughter would go ask if her daughter could play and we were told that she was grounded.But,then 5 minutes later their girl would be at our door wanting to play.Whenever my daughter wanted to play the answer was no,but when their daughter wanted to play she even wanted my daughter to skip Awana,girl scouts and family things we were doing.When their daughter was at our room one night she told me that I could not watch what was on tv because it was not allowed to be on while she was there.It was nothing bad,"Law and Order".Then 4 or 5 days ago the man was walking by and stopped to say hello while walking his dog as he usually did and he was acting strange.The girl told my daughter that her mom and that man had broke up.Then we did not see him for a couple of days.Then when we did see him,he said that he had to go a way for a few days and also told me that his girlfriend did not want him talking to me.He said that they had not broke up.Later that day I was walking up to the office with my grand daughter and saw the woman and her daughter I spoke to her and she sent her daughter to the office the front way to find out why it was taking him more then the two minutes that he was there was there.She came back and said that he would just be another few minutes.I continued talking to her about the complex and about a minute later she sent her daughter back to the office to tell the man that she said to come back now!I then continued to walk to the office the back way(that has more sidewalks for the baby).And when we got there the man was not there,I asked the desk clerk what I needed too and then left.We came back the back way and saw the lady and she snapped at me and asked me where the man was.I told her that I did not see him and I started to tell her something and she took her hand and waved me off,went inside and yelled at her aunt,"Where did he go?" About 5 minutes later I was outside talking to my son and the man walked up and said hello to my son.I told him that his girlfriend was looking for him.About that time his cell phone rang and it was her and I could hear her yelling at him,"Why did you go walking around without asking me? Where were you? You get home now!" He said ok and that he was sorry.Is he whooped or what? Later that night my son and I were taking the girls for a walk and saw their dog outside and their truck pulling away.My daughter ran to catch them and the lady just drove faster away when she saw my daughter.We called the office and they opened their room and let the dog in.I figured that the dog slipped out the door beside them.The man from the office told me that there was a disturbance earlier.That the man and woman had broke up and she would not drive him anywhere,so his brother come and got him.Later that night the office called me and said that the dog was up there.Another neighbor saw the dog out and took it to their room and the woman told her that it was her now ex boyfriends dog and she did not want him!So,she put him out in the street!They were calling me to keep him.but,I couldn't.She put him out with no collar or leash.He is a big dog and I could not hold him with my damaged hands. Do you know people like this?

OMGOSH!! yes, i do know people that like to live in all that turmoil of fussing & fighting & they seem to enjoy it but believe me it's not for me. she has to be a cruel , heartless person & him to do that poor dog like that. i believe if i were u i'd act like i didn't know her the next time i saw her. wouldn't want my kids playing w/hers either. i can't understand why people want to live like that.i like peace & quiet myself. i had enough of that fighting & carrying on when i was married to last me a lifetime, along w/some family members.

I found out today that on that night her boyfriend had beat her and his brother came here and was brought to the door by the desk clerk here.Then the man punched in in the face.She was crying and showed me all the bruises.She has to stay inside with her 11 year old daughter and elderly sick aunt cannot be walking that big dog all those times everyday.She took the dog to his mothers and tied it up outfront.But,now she has no gas money

i try to avoid people like that like the plague. it sounds mean,but i have no time for people who get into it with each other like that.you pick a side,and next thing you know,they're both against you. until it happens again,repeat cycle.

Since then I have found out that her boyfriend beat her.Then the desk clerk brought a guest to their door instead of calling them.The guest was the boyfriends brother and he punched the lady in the face.She has a bruise,a cut and a lump on her faces and bruises all over her hip where her boyfriend hit her.I feel bad for her,been there and done that.Plus the way she is talking,exactly the cycle will just repeat itself and they will be mad at me.

Back near my old house, one of our neighbors had a son about my age. I guess one day he was setting launching fireworks out on the street. Well, somebody called the cops on him and they instantly thought it was my mother, even though it wasn't. She even tried telling them that, but they wouldn't even believe her!

It sounds as if you better just stay away. I did have some neighbors that were like that, and I sure am glad I moved. Good luck with the situation.

If someone waved me off like that, they'd lose their hand. And you're telling me the daughter told you not to watch TV in your own house because of what her mother said, in YOUR house? Control freak!! As for the dog, I'd be calling the animal control and the police on the woman for negligence.
