'House for sale by owner because my neighbor's a douchebag' sign raises stakes in Texas feud




Shortly after a retired couple moved into the rental house next door about two years ago, Price said the wife came over "a few times" to ask that the Prices keep their four dogs inside the house until 9 a.m. because the retirees liked to sleep late.

"We're trying to keep them in until 8," Price said. "I think the city ordinance says 7."

One Sunday morning a few weeks ago, the dogs "were going nuts" about something outside, and not long after that the Prices got the ticket from animal control officials. They've not paid it yet and have a court date for Thursday, Price said.

Since the Prices' yard sign went up, local police and a city council member have come by to ask them to take it down. But the sign is not illegal, and James Price said he and his wife are waiting on the neighbors to make a move.

"He just needs to back off a little bit about the dogs," Price said of the man next door. "He's being ridiculous. Now I'd like him to pay my $121 fine. All he had to do was come over (to talk to us), but he chose not to do that."

1. I have a neighbor like that. Insufferable asshole.

The entire neighborhood feels the same way. Bossy, complaining, cop-calling doofus. Then he wonders why no one invites him over to their cookouts! I love the fact that the neighborhood has evolved over the years, and now we have lots of screaming, screeching children playing and yelling and batting balls all over, from dawn to well past dusk, with dogs, lots of dogs, BIG dogs, who woof woof woof all day.

Bet he misses the days when all he heard was the dog down the street and my yippy shits.

He's called the dog officer so much that he's acknowledged as a crank.

5. Don't know about you but it's always been my ambition to move in right next door to a douchebag

The guy has chosen an odd way to make his point which makes me question if there isn't more than one douchebag on that block.
