**Sorry in advance to all the people who commented that they liked our stone bench.
I hate the people we bought our house from. The woman is rude and her husband is a jackass (we'll just pretend that his actual name is Jackass). I could tell you many disturbing stories about their incompetence, but I won't bore you with all the trivial details. Just know that I do not like these people. Unfortunately, Jackass and his wife only moved one block away from us, so we still have to see them ALL THE DAMN TIME.
Our neighbor (an elderly woman), decided that she wanted to have new vinyl siding installed on her house. She decided to ask Jackass to come install it for her. Ugh. I was very disappointed. But she can't afford to pay a contractor, so I understand why she asked him to do the work. But he is a jackass, so I am not sure she'll be saving money in the long run.
Anyways, let's rewind back to the day we bought our house in January of 2006. We were standing outside, talking to Jackass about the house. He was prattling on and on about these stupids stones in the flowerbed. Apparently, he thought they were really special.Now fast forward back to our elderly neighbor getting her vinyl siding replaced. When I found out that Jackass was going to be installing her siding, I went out of my way to ask the landscapers to remove those stupid stones. I wanted Jackass to drive past our house and see that his beloved stones were gone. Yes, I am a bitch.
But he got the last laugh my dear internet friends. While installing the new vinyl siding, Jackass has been blaring his music so loud that my children can't nap. Honestly, I wish I still had one of those stones, so I could whop him upside the head with it.
