Anyway, Ive moved so , other than messages on fakebook from her, its not an issue. Its funny how fakebook has people messaging you when you're not on there for a year. I hear there's like 5 million fake accts on facebook also.

In the suburbs it helps to be civil, but I will never understand people who think they need to know every single story of every person on the block. This woman knew about everything, but perhaps its bcs she lived in the same place for over 30 years.

I am sorry to hear you got divorced, that is always a tough road to walk, been there myself. As far as facebook goes, I found deactivating my account after I had not logged on for over one year was the best thing for me. I did not miss any of it ever. I do miss some of the family things posted however, eventually I get caught up when someone calls or I call them and we get updated.

Has anyone had an issue like this and what do you do to just point it out.
In the suburbs where my mailbox is a walk down the driveway, I find it happens alot more than in the city, where everyone kind of just goes about their business and doesnt come running over to talk.

Idle small talk-
So glad I'd found your thread! allow me to rant!

My neighbor, I'll call her Mrs. Kravitz to protect her true identity,
I have a slumlord, okay, he doesn't do any maintenance unless something becomes unserviceable, in fact, he won't have the snow plowed in winter months, and won't mow the weeds until they're knee deep.

Yesterday, I called a fellow on Craigslist who advertised mowing and trimming {cheap}
I asked him to mow and trim our front, side and back yard, he came over, did it, and I paid him 30 bucks for doing a very good job.

Minutes later, the maintenance guy for the slumlord came over to Mrs. Kravitz's apartment, and since I have eavesdropping wireless cameras, I heard the conversation and watched the video. She complained we had our grass cut but hers wasn't.

Mrs. Kravitz is also a busy-body. My spouse and I returned from the store, and Mrs. Kravitz was talking to our next door neighbor about us, and as soon as we got out of our vehicle, she beat feet back to her apartment. My video/audio recorder is 24/7, and I could only pick up bits and pieces of her conversation with our neighbor, but it had something to do with me complaining about my neighbor's loud music.

I can't wait to move out west to wide open spaces, and less people!
I'd rep you for this thread, but I have to pass the love around some more.
