Yup, you read right. Despite other personal turmoil that needs to be addressed, my family has decided to go nuts over Halloween decorations being "too close" to our yard.
A new family just moved in next door; their kids are super young. They watched excitedly as their mommy decorated the voltage box into a mini coffin with spider webs and ghosts. I thought it was the cutest thing. Unfortunately for my folks, they caught wind of this and were pissed. "The box is right by our yard. There's no fence so you cant tell who's who. What if the witnesses drive by? What will they think?"
Not "Oh, this is against our beliefs. They're in our space." Nope, just what the witnesses think. My dad was angry and ready to curse them out (despite the latest WT talking about abusive speech). My mom had a better idea: go cause a big mess at the Homeowners Association like she normally does. Then she was going to print of some literature and leave it at their porch. I know JWs were nuts, but it's really come to this?
I got the popcorn out...
