So we were getting bundled up to play outside this afternoon, and I hear kids playing outside. I look out our front door, and the kids are sledding in our driveway!!!
I saw the middle-school boy who lives across the street, and then who I assume were about 4 of his friends. Running up our driveway and sledding down. WTF?!?
They have a hilly driveway too. Maybe too steep to walk up/down, I suppose. Our driveway has a little hill (not too steep). But WTF, seriously? I wouldn't have minded had they rang our doorbell and asked, but we're not close with these neighbors (just say hi in passing). Do kids really just do this kind of stuff? I would have NEVER done that, at least not without asking permission.
I made DH go outside and ask his mother to have him stop. I don't want the liability (if he falls in our yard, it's OUR insurance). Plus, it's just rude of them to do it in the first place without asking permission.
Would you have been pissed too? I'm not trying to be the crotchety neighbor, but seriously, why couldn't they have played in their own yard, in the street, at a local park...or at least asked?
