    i live in an apartment complex, and have two big flower beds outside of my townhouse. the groundskeepers do not do anything with them and it my job to plant flowers or whatever IF I WANT! i did not do anything with them this year because i was busy, and the weeds that grew in them looked kinda neat anyways (in their own way). anyways the people next door came over and ripped them out without even asking me! am i right to be pissed about this?

    I'd be sorta pissed, ya. I'd ask them why they did it and advise them that it is your flowerbed and not a communial one. It's possible they thought it was for the complex, didnt like the weeds, and decided to clean it up.

    If you weren't taking care of them and weeds were growing your neighbours may have not liked the look and thought that they were doing you a favour.

    Your weeds were probably spreading to their gardens. That is not very considerate of you.

    They probably wanted to smoke it.

    Oh, wait, weeds.

    yeah, unless you're talking about the sweetleaf, WFT? They're weeds. They WERE doing you a favor, whether they they intended to, or not. It's like complaining that your neighbors stepped on all those delightful cockroaches you liked looking at.

    Well, you have to remember that when living in an apartment complex, boundaries become fuzzy. I remember on more than one occassion finding vomit on my car door, having peoples trash spill outside our doorway and what not. Unless you fence things or tie them to your area, people will do what ever they want. I had someone clean our bar-b-que pit once. It had been moved, cleaned and covered but it was still right next to our door.

    Was it your flower bed? You said you lived in a townhome, but in an apartment complex. Not sure how you do it there, but here, most anything you rent except for a house doesn't include the planting areas outside.

    'Sides, 'stead of asking us, why don't you ask them what the deal is? They're your neighbors, having an agreement that everyone's happy with is probably the best answer.

    I'd screw with them. Tell them they were very expensive exotic plants, that you had to pay a lot of extra fees just to be allowed to import.

    But, I'm kind of weird like that.

    Exactly. If you live in a condo, townhouse, apartment complex, neighborhood, etc you gotta think of your neighbors. Also there might be a homeowners association that has rules against how tall your grass can be, how tall weeds can be, how tall the fence can be, only wood fences, only brown stained mailboxes.

    They were just being nice and doing work you were too lazy to do in the first place.

    In the desert, some of our most beautiful plants are parasitic plants like weeds. Despite their nature to irritate allergies some of our weeds can be quite beautiful, but not all appreciate their beauty.

    The neighbors likely didn't understand that you appreciated the weeds and how they looked and thought they were doing you a favor. I'd ask them in a polite way to let you know if they have a problem with what you've planted or have growing before arbitrarily removing them.

    I know how.

    Lay a rubber or insulating mat over the hood and top of your car. Put some chicken wire over it and hook up a car battery to the chicken wire.

    What?
