Or just tell them they have to grow up and move out (and pay their own way -- aka. get a job).

My kids were always happy as hell to move out -- meant they got to live by their own rules and not have a chore list (at least not one made by Mom and Dad).

Have to be careful out in the countryside too.

I live in a small, rural town -- things are pretty laid back. However, due to the low property taxes and generally quaint, sleepy small rural town nature of my town it attracted some people from a local city who either bought already existing homes or bought land and built on it. They wanted to get away into idyllic nature I guess...and then they proceeded to try and create a HOA because they didn't like the local resident's chickens, livestock, bass boats, or the corn being grown where there should be lawns.

We've had shit from them because we've got horses and other livestock...I guess when they bought adjacent property they thought farm animals didn't poop or something (for the record, I have this -- rather large -- compost pile and sell some of the proceeds, but it is a rather large one and damn straight I put it at the end of my property...which apparently they didn't see when they bought and built their little country dream home on that property line).

What's wrong with growing corn in the front yard? Self-reliance is a virtue.

Besides, they might have some extra...who wants some fresh roasting ears?

That's not even a good slide, let alone a good argument.

Come back next time with something better and have a good day.

I don't know why my comments on this thread are not showing up, but: this is why HOAs are generally bullshit (and I have explained my pov in my other comments on this thread).

You can buy the same stuff at the local Wallie World, if that's what you want. VS was always overpriced bs. Besides, my husband always told me it didn't matter what I was wearing in the boudoir...it was coming off anyway.

Have you ever done a search on "homeowner v HOA litigation"? One of the top hits is "HOAs cannot create/enforce rules in an arbitrary or capricious manner". That means there's been a fair amount of litigation for that very thing.

Try again.

Maybe he didn't know the rules would be applied to his kids' treehouse -- I've seen HOAs before: a lot of the time "da rules" are so vague, they could be applied to anything, so you're at the mercy of the neighborhood jackwagons who just want to stir shit.

No wonder the left wins, too many on the right like the idea of vague arbitrary rules that restrict people's basic liberties...just as long as they aren't the ones getting snagged by them!

I didn't. And when the town busybodies tried to create one, we were in the group of people who got that little idea smacked down! (in a rural town that isn't much bigger than a couple of large suburban neighborhoods as it is, which is bullshit)

If people like living with HOAs, then they should move to where those rules exist and leave the rest of us alone, in peace, with our treehouses and veggie gardens.

His property though -- and one person's "shitty looking hunk of junk" is another's modern art masterpiece, so..you know. I'd rather see a shitty treehouse in a neighborhood than an overly manicured lawn because I've got lots of kids (maybe they'll get invited over to play in the treehouse or at least we'll get to build our own 'shitty treehouse')...see how that works? People buy houses for different things.

HOAs are usually the result of the neighborhood stasi wannabees.

Imhao: as long as it doesn't involve burning tires or some such that actually does affect me negatively, your property (and if you do burn the tires, well, then I can always go over, knock on your door, and we can have a polite, civil conversation about it ;) ).

*yeah, get pissy and downvote me -- smells like victory in the morning; thanks!

I don't think the poster is a guy ("Granma taught me everything I know about being beautiful")...but that does add a certain hilarity if so.

Now, now...that's not REALLY showing a woman in the first scene...that's just more of the hetero-cisnorminative-colonial imperialist-patriarchy of white non-birthing nazi kind!

Shit, I forgot to add "transgressive" in there...damn...

Yaaaaayyyyy! We got chocolate chip!

We at least deserve chocolate chip, but knowing him I was afraid it was something like those fake, generic oreos (the crumbly ones that taste of sadness and children's tears).
