The teenaged girls in my neighborhood are

In Reply to: Amen on babies having babies - MQ'r

having a race to see who can have the most babies.  It's horrible.  They think of the babies as little pets or dolls, then dump them on their mothers to go out and party.  None of the girls has a high school education, job, driver's license or anything.  They have police records, too.  Four of the girls were over here one day wanting to use my phone, and one of them wanted me to feel her stomach to see if I thought she was pregnant.  She was disappointed later when she found out she wasn't.  I got onto soapbox mode telling them to finish their education or at least get a GED so they could support those babies.  Life's not easy being a young, uneducated mother.  They use the excuse that they have bad home lives, they just want someone to love them, they'll get a regular income with WIC, foodstamps, and welfare checks, or maybe even get their own house when low income apartments become available.  My goodness, their thinking is so messed up.  They don't even have a single clue in their little heads.  This isn't even the inner city.

I keep telling my boys to stay away from girls.  Save it for marriage or you're going to get trapped into fatherhood.

My kiddos start school next Wed and I'm not ashamed to say it will be a relief. My teenaged son

gives me hourly updates on his boredom every single day.  Now, my daughter is starting kindergarten this year and I will be sad probably the first week because she's my baby - my last baby - but she is sooooo ready for school.  She just can't wait.  Maybe I should be the one with hurt feelings since she can't way to leave me! 

I highly doubt my son's feelings are hurt when I say "Just think, you won't be bored when school starts."

I'd definitely get it verified with a supervisor (to use for MT) before signing up because if you look at the fine print on MCI's neighborhood it says for voice calling only and there is a 5000-minute limitation.

I never ever had a problem with them. My girlfriend tried AT&T, but when they saw how long she was on the phone - they started charging her.
Try Ebay.. in the $500 neighborhood there..nm
cops in neighborhood
Thankfully, in my community we DO watch out for the neighbors.  Don't spend all day gawking at their business but we do notice strangers, strange cars and have no qualms with calling the dispatcher if something seems out of sync.  You don't have to call 911 just the dispatcher.
We had a dog adopt us. Never saw in the neighborhood

before, no collar.  I took to our vet to scan for a microchip and doesn't have one.  Vet won't keep the dog because it needs all shots, which we can't afford to do.  Dog is a lab and we have no place to keep her, plus we have a dog who is not tolerant of another dog and has chronic medical problems.   We feed/water the dog and are providing it with a warm place to sleep, though it is a very small space and not suitable for long-term.

I have notified all the vets in our area, called the shelter, sent e-mails to all residents with e-mail addy in our community, placed an ad in our local newspaper and placed signs at major neighborhood intersections.   There has been no ad in the paper looking for a dog, no signs, no one appears to be looking for her.  What do you think is an appropiate amount of time to keep her before we try to find her a new home?   She is just the sweetest dog and we have all fallen in love with her, but cannot provide for her.  We find it difficult to believe that no one appears to be looking for her.   DH says she is very conscious of cars like she is searching for "the one" and feels like she was dumped.   I can't/won't take her to the pound, although due to her personality we feel she will be adopted immediately. 

We're too close to the situation to be objective. 


I also live in a neighborhood where
people let their dogs run loose. There are two dogs in particular that I am actually afraid of and I don't like to let my 7y/o go outside and play if those dogs are anywhere around. I have called Animal Control about them before and they said that if the dogs weren't on my property there wasn't anything they would do about it. So, exactly what is Animal Control there for anyway? They told me I would have to catch the dogs and restrain them somehow and then call them and they would come and pick them up. I'm sorry, but I'm not going near those dogs. It's ridiculous!
Sounds like my neighborhood...sm
And the same situation.....now that it doesn't back up in our house, the neighbors down the road are all getting it!  You wouldn't believe the things that I saw...it was just disgusting, and I'll never forget that SMELL!  It was a real nightmare.  Hubby was out of town and I was home alone with 2 small kids....I sure would like to move but just can't seem to find the time or money to do that, and then top that with off with potential problems of selling this house....any suggests?  Oh, I am bumbed now....but I am happy we could help you out!!  I think you have made a wise decision in not buying the house!
There would be two dead pit bulls in my neighborhood
If this happened to me.  What if this was a child.  I can't believe no one does anything about this in your community. 
I've had that happen in my neighborhood too!

It's a bit scary when you can't even get home because of the cops!

Been using The Neighborhood or SBC unlimited for the last 5 years now. sm

I was NOT talking to a telemarketer at SBC.  I originally talked to one (I assume) when I called, but when I explained what I was using it for, I talked with his supervisor.  As long as I am accessing voice files and NOT using it for faxing, accessing the internet, or other "computer to computer" things, it is fine.  I have not had any hassle, except for once, and then when I called and talked to them and changed to a business line, I was fine. 

Hope you have better luck than you have so far.  :-)

In a rich neighborhood in the 'burbs
north of where I live they have fixed the funky paint problem with some kind of zoning ordinance -- people can only use colors on an approved list of "historic" colors.

I think that other people who live in the same neighborhood
also bought their homes and paid good money for them. They have the right to look out their window that they OWN and not be forced to look across the street at Bozo's Big Top.
Any neighborhood watch people?

I am thinking of starting a neighborhood watch in my area but was wondering if people really want to get involved.  I know this would depend on my neighbors, but for the most part do people care?  The main problem I am having with my neighborhood is that down the street there is a section of what would be called *low income rental units* which are actually just one bedroom tiny houses, and the people who rent there just do not care about the neighborhood, the noise level, the litter, so on. 

The main problem I am having is noise.... It comes from about three car stereos and there is really no way to pinpoint it unless you physically sit at the end of the street and get the make and license # of the car.  The noise ends about 3:00 a.m. and starts up again about 7:00 a.m.  I have phoned the police several times regarding this, but what can they do really if they don't know what car it is coming from?  They said they can drive by the block a few extra times a night, but really that has done no good.  I have had to start taking sleeping pills and wearing ear plugs to even get some sleep lately, but the noise is still so loud it sounds like thunder, and I cannot believe somebody who lives right next to that noise does not call it in to the police.  That is why I question whether people actually want to get involved.  I can only call the police so many times myself before they think I am crazy and am hearing things. 

As for the littering, it is not just bottles and cans, it is pieces of furniture that nobody wants anymore and they push it out to the curb hoping it will magically disappear.  It doesn't disappear, and I'm getting embarassed to have any friends over to my house because they have to pass that area before reaching my end of the street. 

As for starting the neighborhood watch, would I just basically go door to door and see what kind of response I would get?  Has anybody else had a noise problem like this, and does it ever get better if people complain, or does that just make it worse?  Thanks for any input.  I'm just so tired and grouchy lately, I hate to even be at home anymore and this is making me depressed. 

I hired a neighborhood teen (sm)
I had my children at home, and hired a responsible neighborhood teenager. I worked part-time during the day with the sitter and then a couple of hours in the evenings when my husband got home. This was much cheaper than day care plus I got to take breaks and see my child and if my children skinned a knee or were really upset, I could take a break and take care ofYou need a backup in case the sitter is unavailable. It worked really well for me. Even better if you know another mom nearby with a child your chid could play with. Don't be fooled though - it is challenging and you will be tired, but was worth it to me :-)
find a teen in your neighborhood to sit for a few hours (nm)
I had the same problem. Our neighborhood is very close and there are a lot of homes.
I looked up the neighbor's phone number after I saw her name in tax records.  I called her and told her I was a neighbor and that her dogs were disturbing the peace. I told her she may not realize it but some people were sick or had small children who were resting at various times of the time and she could not leave her dog barking all day long.  I told her we were all talking about calling the police (which I had already done to establish the law and found out you cannot leave a barking dog in your yard in our neighborhood no matter what time it is according to the police) but I decided to phone her instead of bringing the police in at this point because she may not be aware of the dog's disturbing others.  She said thank you for calling and the dog has been brought in when it barks to go in.  Find out the guidelines from your local police department.  A barking dog is disturbing the police no matter what time of the day it is.
I live in a quiet country neighborhood sm
but it is 6 a.m. and the birdies have started waking up. So loud!!
Neighborhood watches are a good idea in general I think, but...
...how will it help with noise? I suppose it could help with the furniture dumping (since your neighbors would be on the lookout), but do you think it would be helpful with the noise problem?

It certainly couldn't hurt. I say go for it.
I started a neighborhood watch a couple of years ago...sm
we were having similar problems to what you're having and they're gone now. Here's what worked for us. I gave every home in the subdvision a flier asking anyone that was interested in forming a neighborhood watch to come to an organization meeting and made the meeting a week later and on a week night, and gave my phone # in the event someone was interested but couldn't attend then. Out of 150 homes in my subdivision we had 40 people show up and 20 called expressing interest.

Everyone had the same complaints on the same "problem" homes and as a group we decided that each time the noise level was high enough to hear outside of the vehicle or house that we'd call the police. We all alternated placing those calls so the police department didn't think it was just 1 person complaining. The police department agreed to increase the patrols for our subdivision at all hours of the day and night and just having people see them ride through every few hours helped significantly cut down on the problems.

Over time the people that were causing problems either put their houses up for sale or moved out of the rental home and left when they saw that we neighbors insisted on a peaceful and quiet living area. It worked! When these problem homes left the problems with the trash thrown on the roads left as well.

In addition we were having some problems with some of the youth hanging out walking the streets at all hours and it was making some of the residents nervous, especially when the youth were walking through yards. So, we told the youth to stick to the roads, ask permission before cutting through yards to find out who cared and didn't care if they walked through them, and one of the men placed a basketball goal at the end of one of the cul-dec-sacs for the kids to play basketball after the neighbors in the cul-dec-sac agreed it would be fine. It worked - some of them started playing basketball there and they honored requests of homeowners that didn't want them walking on their yards.

Good luck to you!
I moved out of a high crime, mainly Hispanic neighborhood, and now...
I was so thrilled, I almost got mugged one night going to the mailbox, then within 6 months my company changed everything on me and I am barely hanging on rent wise. I sure know what you are going through.
Our neighborhood is all women's names - Robin Ln., Julia Dr. Must be the worker's ladies! :) n
sad for you girls
sounds like you ladies are finding your boys in all the wrong places.  MEN don't cheat.  BOYS cheat.  You need to find a MAN and then you will find yourself in a REAL relationship like never before and you will be HAPPY and have TRUST.  It CAN happen as it happened to me.  Good luck. 
My girls like me
Well, my girls like working for peaNUTS. Oh golly, my sense of humor has gotten the best of me, bad boy Frank.
mean girls
hope you never find yourself in a bad situation - you have no sympathy or regard for other humans
The girls are going down . . .
Kelly was soo bad. I think and hope it will be the three boys remaining. Katherine's dress was a little much wasn't it? She had visible panty lines. Chris was very sexy.
Mean Girls!

Well, here I go! Gotta vent.  We use IM to talk to the QA person and the boss for the small MTSO I work for.  Many times the boss will turn "Busy" on, so you can't ask her anything.  If she wants to talk to you, she will, but if she does not, she won't.  Same goes for the QA.  Sometimes I feel so small! I do not bug them unless I really need something, but apparently they feel I am bugging them too much.  Days go by that I never IM either one, so its not like every day I bug them! I feel very insignificant when they do this! Am I overly sensitive? 

yep...little girls are the best!! Glad I have 3 of them! Have fun! nm

re: View girls
I cannot stand the View girls. Who do they think they are! They act so high and mighty, especially Star Jones and Meredith whatshername! Please!
I think the girls forgot to ask you
if you were married and if you'd post a picture for them?  Just kidding....  It's just kind of funny to see how many responses you got from your post while new MT females get maybe one or two.  I know of a couple of dude MTs.  We had one in-house.  Poor guy. 
RadGuy not into girls
So what? Is there a problem with that?
Hey Crafty Girls
My niece wants to get into a hobby or do some crafts in her side time, but does not know where to begin.  She is a modernistic woman, age 30, not into the country motif, but wants to be crafty.  Any suggestions out there of where she might start or a craft kit I could get her for Christmas?  Thanks for any and all suggestions.
Several girls I work with do...
One has one on her ankle. Another has one in the small of her back. Another has one on her arm (like men usually do)...Personally, I think the one in the small of the girl's back is the cutest. Its just above where her low-riding jeans fit. I dated a guy who had one on his tush... a rose. He said he went through a bad divorce and then had it done thinking to himself some day he'd be somebody's rose...Now that I think back, shouldn't that have been the other way around??  LOL...Anyway, good luck, they say that hurt a bit, but they don't regret getting them. I, myself, am not into pain! LOL
26, 4&2 y/o girls, due with another girl 3/16
I was a nurse first with a neuroticism about spelling and documentation, so this was a good career move for me. It's not because I was chasing the work-at-home dream.
My boys were 3 1/2 and my girls were 2.

Cheerios in the toilet worked for me.  SINK THOSE BATTLESHIPS!!  :)

But both boys were 3 1/2 at least and when I was just about ready to give up, they just started using the bathroom as if nobody had ever told them a thing.

Pressuring and scolding are the 2 worst things you can do.  Just be laid back and all of a sudden one day, they are diaper free.  None of my 4 have ever had an accident or wet the bed since the day it kind of dawned on them.  Sort of like the day they learn to ride a bike without training wheels. :)

This too shall pass like water under the bridge.  No pun intended.  Now I'm buying diapers for my grandkids.

we are not all girls...but Bose is the best
Maybe she is only talking to the girls. (nt)

The Golden Girls...
I love the Golden Girls...though it does come on Lifetime I think like 5-6 times a day...I love that show!
girls just wanna have fun; nm
Girls and women
That, in my humble opinion, is what separates the girls from the women. With all of the references we have at our fingertips (Google is WONDERFUL), if you know how to search, you can find what you need. As a success story in MT for over 35 years, I can honestly say that from day one (and yes, I had to learn over the years), I did my very best never to ask for help UNTIL I had exhausted every means available to me and had come up empty-handed. I realize that is much easier to do this when you do not work by the line and every minute is money in your pocket...or not if you are spending a lot of time looking things up.
Stop it. I can't leave you girls alone for a second. sm
I sure am glad I don't have to work with you all who post these PMS/menopausal rantings. 
yep, I go to Old Navy and look at their clothes for my girls
Or Wal-Mart and look at all the stuff I want!  that does it for me!
What's for dinner tonight girls?
Guess what, all three kids are GIRLS! and ....
the two youngest ones are in early puberty, so we have hormones dripping from the walls around here.  My husband threatens to move into a tent in the backyard once we're all "cycling"  LOL
Want to know what's for dinner tonight girls
I am making that 20-garlic recipe from below with mashed taters and salad and some homemade bread.  Yum. 
30, now at 9 years and 2 great little girls-nm
Done..also got girls in my office to sign
mine were both girls - and I even had to have a psychiatrist for - sm
one of them. Of course, you know how psychiatrists can be - always blaming the parents for the social dysfunctions of the beagle!
Eleven-year-old girls...
Boy, I guess they're all different.  My almost 18-year-old was a piece of cake, still very much a little girl at 11.  But this next one is totally different.  Sweet loving girl, good student, very attached to her family, but so bent on growing up faster (maybe it's having the older sister effect).  A few months ago her younger sister ratted on her that she was at a school function and was putting on eye make up.  So we had a talk with her about how she had symptoms of a disease, a disease called untrustworthiness, and that if she was going to sneak around and do things she knows we don't allow, then she wouldn't be allowed the privilege of doing certain things.  Today (speaking of lunch boxes), I was emptying out yesterday's lunch box and found a tube of lipstick out of my bathroom.  She said it was for her friends (which this experienced old mom doesn't buy for 2 seconds), then admitted it was for her too.  I know this is small potatoes now, but as Barney Fife used to say, you have to NIP IT IN THE BUD.  So I guess I better let my DH know and figure out what to do.  Today it's lipstick, tomorrow it's something much bigger. 
Anything that "The Girls Next Door" say

Little girls that age have been saying this forever. Don't worry! nm
