I've never been in any verbal fights like that, but one of my neighbors a couple houses down the street was. It was at a party a few blocks away. Husband and wife got into a screaming match; cops were called; he sped away in his car headed home; pulled into his garage; cops pulled in behind him. More cops came. Sirens were whaling and lights were flashing.

My wife and I ran outside to see what the heck was going on. Neighbor backed out of his garage, striking one of the cars and a cop who was standing next to it. We heard, "GET DOWN! GET DOWN! BAM-BAM-BAM-BAM!" Neighbor lay dead on the lawn across from his house.

I live in a quiet suburban neighborhood -- usually.

You're already fighting like this with someone you recently started seeing? Wow, what's it going to be like in a year or more?

I call the cops on fighting neighbors. I don't know that someone's not being killed over there and I don't like being woke up at 1am or kept awake, or for little ones at my home to hear that.

Well it might be funny the first hundred times but after 30 years the stress of yelling starts to wear down your physical health. I cannot recommend it.

Oh lord, this was every night when I was growing up. My parents would get drunk and scream at each other. I grew up thinking it was normal to feel humiliated whenever I saw the neighbors. What made it worse was that we were close with almost everyone in the neighborhood.

And my parents were married for 48 years...go figure.

Wow, that must have been tough. I bet your neighbors liked years of that. I am still hiding in my house. I've been here over five years without incident. I am just hoping they think I hooked up with a psycho (which I did and he is no more).
