“During the move, we rented a trailer to haul our stuff to the new place. My husband parked his truck and trailer across the street, directly in front of our neighbor’s house,” she added. “This was the only spot that was able to accommodate both the truck and trailer.”

The husband laughed and said okay. But Adam didn’t like the neighbor’s tone. He asked why the truck could not be parked there, considering it was public parking.

The neighbor told Adam to mind his own business. The two men exchanged words, and soon they were in each other’s faces. The woman’s husband had to intervene.

The neighbor heard her speak to the police. He was furious that she’d called the cops on him. Then, another neighbor a few doors down came out and criticized her for involving the authorities, too.

The neighbor was really worked up at this point. He was ranting and raving about the woman calling the police. Eventually, his own wife came and brought him inside.

One poster said, “Your husband can’t tell you to get help and then complain when you try to get help. Regarding the neighbor, he sounds like a head case and someone who could be a problem going forward.”

While another commenter said, “Who else are you supposed to call? The Ghostbusters?”
