TUBOB: Why My Old Neighbors Sucked

I don't even remember their names anymore and it's only been six or seven years since they moved. The woman was pretty nice, friendly and took care of the yard and her little kids. The dude was a puffed up wannabe alpha neighbor man who once bellowed at my young sons who were unscrewing Christmas lights (the big bulbs) from a spare string they found in the garage and throwing them onto the street in front of our driveways to watch and hear the bulbs explode. It was no big deal really but he was coming unglued. I told the boys to stop scaring the stupid man across the street with their "Santa light bombs" and go back in the house and I didn't mind if they wanted to make the finger bird fly at the stupid neighbor man. Christmas bulbs. Please/TUBOB. More here

Question: Did you ever have a lousy neighbor?
