Our neighbour to the back of our property complained about smoke from our chimney during the winter of 2012.  We didnt utilise the fireplace for the rest of that particular winter.  During the winter of 2013 we used the fireplace twice and about a week later she arrived with a posse of Metro Police officers and loudly proclaimed that she would have us arrested and would sue us for her health problems (she's asthmatic).  We consulted an attorney who drew up a compromise letter where we will only utilise antracite in our fireplace, she refused to agree to the compromise.  We did not utilise our fireplace again, however, we are now also not able to freely use our backyard braai as this is also an issue to her.  We have good relations with all the other neighbours and all were willing to provide a statement that our fireplace and braai does not constitute a nuisance to them at all.

Last night we had a Estate agent knocking on our door stating that our neighbour sent her as she (the neighbour) said that we would like to sell our home.... 

This of-course led to us sitting in our garden thinking up vengeful retaliation - from throwing HTH on their lawn, having a 3 ton truck full of pig manure delivered on their front stoep and getting Whackhead to phone them.

What would you like to do to people when they finally manage to piss you off on a grand scale (aside from going the legal upstanding law abiding citizen route which we are..)

Get a few tubes of liquid superglue and squeeze their contents into all of her Yale-type keyholes, including padlocks, while she’s away.  Then amuse yourselves as she tries to get back into her house…

Or you can clone her number plate, mount it on the back of your car and take a lengthy drive around the e-toll highways after the 3rd of December.

I've always mused about picking an particularly bad enemy and writing something creative, on their driveway, using thermite.

A powdered mixture of iron-oxide (rust) and aluminium. Has a very high ignition point (so you have to light it with a blowtorch, etc), but it burns so hot it'll melt through an engine block in seconds [1].

A little bit far maybe. But really I would have a big braai every saturday, invite the local biker club.

There is no law and will there ever be a law in this country that says you can't braai.
I think it is the constitution.

If you can get at her inhaler undetected, put some novocaine on its mouthpiece.  Then get your youngest to phone her, asking to speak to Mrs Numb-lips.

Or, instead of novocaine, rub a habanero chilli around the inhaler mouthpiece and have your youngest ask for Mrs Hot-lips.

From another thread, but Boogie has a point...

It would be great if everyone could just get along, we could avoid conflict and strife, and work together as humanity. However when we do not rock the boat, when we are too passive, the 'self aggrandising pirates' take over. So it can only work if absolutely everyone does it.

That's not going to happen, so we need, as we do in the world, a balance between being passive and being aggressive.

Anyhows, my saga continues, on Friday night we received a final written warning from the council to stop burning our garden refuse in the middle of the night.  The night in question was last Thursday in the middle of that huge thunderstorm that hit Gauteng....

Gosh you know what I would do is go the police and lay a charge.
I'm sure there must be some law of lying to a government department
and wasting government time.

The only way is to fight fire with fire in this case,
else you going to have your hand full with this woman and she is going to
make your life miserable.

Based on the evidence supporting unreasonable and malicious prosecution/intimidation, go get a court interdict to force her to restrict her complaints to instances where your local by-laws were actually transgressed. This will mean paying an attorney a small fee, but if she acts up again, she can be arrested immediately for contempt of court.

Basically what my attorney advised telephonically this morning, I'll be visiting my other neighbours this afternoon, they all indicated the first time around that they would be happy to make a statement in the effect that we are not problematic neighbours in any aspect.  I'll go to the copshop after and lay a charge of harrassment, I have an appointment with my attorney on Wednesday to discuss next steps should it be required.

Its just so tedious and unnecessary... and I could really spend my year end bonus on more fun things.

In 1975 there were only a few types of TVs on the market. My dad used to say that back then he opted for the PAL system: Mondays he went to watch TV with one pal, Tuesdays with another pal ...

Yep, sent her a letter of demand and applied at the court for an interdict to prevent her from contacting us at all, apparently this can take several weeks though and of-course, the courts have now closed for the holiday season... So basically, we have to wait for that part to materialise in the new year.  It will cost me to attend to court at least three times in person before I can have a measly piece of paper. The law in this country surely takes it time.

The letter of demand (via attorney) basically threatens her with court action with costs if she persists in her harrassment and unsubstantiated accussations.  Not sure whether its going to have any effect on the woman or not, we'll have to see.

We've done some investigating ourselves and her facebook page likes:

Angel Blessings
Guardian Angels by my side
Angus Buchan
SA 4 Jesus
Mamma's met hoop (Huh?)
Casper de Vries is WALGLIK (another Huh??)
Rey Mysterio - WWE Universe
Open doors for Fibromyalgia (interesting, makes us wonder if she is a sufferer or simply knows someone)

and finally...

Mikes Kitchen.

We've been wondering whether she have'nt heard somewhere that we are atheist and now have a bee in her bonnet to get rid of us, she made a comment to our attorney that our town is "Sodom and Gomorra"....

I went to court this morning for the next step in the saga, got my new interdict duly signed by the magistrate, went to the copshop and they duly attempted to deliver it this afternoon.... the Warrant-Officer phoned me now and told me that she chased them off and refused to sign for delivery.  They will notify the court and I need to go back to request a warrant of arrest.  Lovely stuff....

Its been going on for two years, in the last month I've had three visits from the cops investigating us "spying" on her, one visit from the fire brigade, one broken window and a patio roof FULL of stones and dog poop....  All this woman's doing...

Just to end this thread with the last episode.

After getting a protection order granted, she continued with her abuse and threatened my S/O with "attempted" murder in front of the magistrate. We sold our house and moved to an entirely different council as this woman is stark raving mad.

We are slowly starting to trust our new neighbours but the whole thing just made us more reclusive and distrustful of people in general.

This whole 2 year drama cost us just over R400 000, in losses on the house, attorneys and doctors fees.

We have no idea how much power we have over each other, it is frecking scary to contemplate.
