Crazy neighbours, shoveling, and other cheesy things

It's my week over at Cheesy Bloggers.  It's my week every third week, actually.  And if you're not already following me (and my genius friends Ms Sarcasm and Ang) at our WICKED ASS bloggy site, you are missing out on some seriously cheesy/hilarious stuff.

Simply because I love you, and I want you to partake in the pure hilarity that happens over there on a daily basis, here is my post from this week. 

But I insist that you go check out Cheesy Bloggers.  Because it's cheesy.  Enough said. 


I hope you don't have a special shoveling method.

Who has a crazy neighbour?

I do! I do!

Actually, most of my neighbours are nice, some are even super fun, but there are inevitable quirks that show up from time to time. Obsessive compulsive quirks, for example.

Last week we got a shit-ton of snow. Not as much as we're used to up here in the Great White North, but still. It all came at once. In one giant dumping on Thursday morning. The whole sky was white with big fluffy flakes falling at a rapid pace. I thought it was nuclear winter.

Anyway, it was falling so fast that there was really no point in shovelling it. Unless you're crazy.

I was getting ready for work and I pointed out to Hubby the funny neighbour across the street, shovelling away. Only, the whole driveway was already covered in another layer of snow by the time she got to the end.

And of course I thought this was HILARIOUS.

But then Hubby made it even funnier.

Hubby: "Oh my god. No. Keep watching. Watch what she does."

Me: "Really? What?"

Hubby: "Just watch."

And I watched, from behind the bedroom curtain my window, while nutbar across the street finished the end of her driveway. AND THEN STARTED OVER AGAIN.

She just started at the top.   Again.

Me: "No!"

Hubby: "She does that all the time! Watch! She even has a special method."

Yep. She sure did. She first shovelled down a layer, and then over. And then down, and over. And so on, until the whole giant driveway was RE-shoveled. Which was clearly the funniest thing I'd seen in weeks. So I obviously ran downstairs to take a picture. Obviously.

I love my neighbours. But man, sometimes people are nuts.


Have you got a crazy neighbour story? Email it to  and I'll post it for all of us to enjoy. Also, please check out this week's Spreadable Cheese. It's totally worth it. I'm super clever and I found some funny stuff for y'all to look at. So go ahead. Now is good. Go!


  1. that's fucking awesome... most of my neighbors are rad... except the one I had when I was growing up who I swore was an axe murderer.. he filled in his swimming pool with dirt.. who the fuck does that?!

  2. Ha!! My upstairs neighbor does this same thing. Total genius I tell ya, goes & shovels in the middle of a snow storm (like the small one we're having here in the good 'ol cheddar state today) for hours all I hear is 'scrape..scrape..sccrrraaape'. Drives me shit balls crazy. It doesn't matter that we have a snow blower, she's still out there with her trusty shovel scraping every bit of snow and ice, only to start all over again.

    I should mention, my upstairs neighbor is also my mother in-law. I freaking love the woman but what the hell MIL?!?!

  3. Jaime - With DIRT? What the fuck?

    S - Well, come and get it!

    Amanda - HAhah! Your MIL. HAHAH!

  4. Oh, wow. What's wrong with her? This is a very strange hobby she has.

  5. jac - She did it again yesterday. Weirdo.
