I got a letter yesterday from our neighborhood HOA Cunt™. This month, she is bitching about the rabbit cages that are stored in the back yard. She quotes a section of the rules that prohibit storage of items (listing everything from toys to lawn equipment) in the front and side yards when not in use. Then she appends this part to the same paragraph, which isn’t in my copy of the rules:
“This includes cages behind the home that have not been screened from view.”
I think this is simply her
opinion demand, and she added it as though it were part of the official rule. Kind of like she selectively quoted the rules last time, deleting a part that, when included in context, cleared me of any violation. Which she acknowledged without acknowledging by sending me a letter a month later saying that the violation was dismissed. With no action taken on my part other than sending her a letter.
As I am wont to do, I called her out on it. I ordered her to cease and desist with the attempts to force me to remove the rabbits from the property. I then pointed out that my copy of the rules was missing the part about cages in the back yard. I then told her that I suspected that this was simply her opinion, and if it was, she shouldn’t have included it in the quote. And, I was challenging it. I explained that if it is indeed an official part of the rules, then it is her obligation to provide updated copies of the rules before attempting to enforce anything new.
I gave her two weeks to provide documentation or fuck off. I didn’t say it exactly that way, but I didn’t leave much doubt as to my feelings on the matter.
Recently, I had priced a setup to bring the rabbits into the garage. It’s more than I want to spend, and having them inside would cause nearly as many challenges as it would eliminate. However, I was seriously considering it. In light of recent events, I’m going to table that idea until I see how the cunt chooses to proceed.
I swear, I don’t know if she’s stupid, power-crazed, suicidal, or simply wants to annoy me in particular and thinks that her position will allow her to do so without repercussions. However, if she doesn’t quit messing with the bull, she’s going to get the horns.
