An Olive Branch

Dear Francine,

Thank you for your recent letter about the construction on your house. I wanted to send you a quick note to apologize for my fellow neighbor(s) and their reprehensible problem solving tactics. I had absolutely no part in the creation of the anonymous letter, nor have I ever spoken to anyone in the neighborhood about the subject of your home.

Obviously, like any good neighbor should, I support timely and unobtrusive construction projects to maximize the value of our neighborhood; however, having done considerable construction on my own home, I also understand that delays happen and that most of us do the best we can to get the job completed. I can only assume you are doing the same.

If for any reason you need my support in combating these cowardly objectors, I would be happy to lend a hand. It would be the least I could do to make amends for such an awful introduction to our neighborhood.

I wish you the best of luck completing your new home and look forward to welcoming you to the neighborhood in person.


[Note: The only thing I hate more than messy neighbors is RUDE neighbors. This woman has got herself a new ally in the fight against obnoxiousness.]

Very nice. I would bet that your new neighbor will be quite happy to read this. Hopefully there are other naighbors who will also try to make amends for the oh-so-rude neighbor who wrote the original note.

Happy Thanksgiving.

You go, boy!

Seriously, you're being a good neighbor. Too bad that's a dying art!

What a sweet letter! I have a very low tolerance for rude people, and anon was definitely rude!

Happy Thanksgiving! :)

I am so glad my neighbors can't see the inside of my place. I would get so many letters...
