This post is the latest on my New Neighbours (NewN) and how I had some payback with the help of Karma.
Please enjoy this very highbrow song which is relevant to what is coming.
~A Quick Recap For My New Readers~
Eastern European NewNs arrived from California to this quiet mountain village in southern Spain and purchased the house next door last year. Then all hell was let loose. The wife glared and screamed at villagers from her street balcony, banged on our walls late at night, played a scale on her piano for hours on end (nothing else) etc. Parked across the road, the 4 tyres of a Spanish friend’s car was slashed one night. An unknown villager retaliated, throwing old engine oil all over the front of the NewN house. The NewNs reported me, my young Spanish neighbours plus another to the Spanish Guardia Civil police and activated a denuncia stating that we did what they were actually doing themselves. I understand the police took no further action as she was crazy.
One: The other afternoon the Guardia Civil police were in the street taking photographs of the NewNs four CCTV cameras which are monitoring the street and public pathway to the river. In Spain CCTV monitoring of neighbours and public areas is totally illegal.
Two: The NewNs got permission from the Town Hall for a yellow line outside their garage, but not the yellow line across the road. He parks his car on it !
Three: Verified information is being sent to me about his “business” in California. A home rental agent. Post Office drop address in Camarillo. No office. Complaints of not refunding deposits when he didn’t activated rentals. His workmen stole from properties…. and HE COMPLAINED TO ME that his US$1.2 million Thousand Acre home had to be sold for US$800,000 ! Karma did her bit in the village by breaking his ankle when he was unloading his pianos and Regency furniture out of the huge shipping container from California.
Oh, an email from the NewNs ! That’s a first !
There is a pipe in the common wall by the ceiling of the hallway going to the studio that is constantly hissing, like water is going through it.
I have shut-off the water in my house and my counter was not moving and the hissing continued.
In your water cabinet there are 3 counters, and I presumed that the top one is yoursand it was this only one moving. I have attempted to shut-of the valve for that counter, but unfortunately the valve doesn’t shut-off the water completely, only half way. I noticed that the counter was moving slower and the hissing diminished.
There are blisters on the ceiling of the hallway by the common wall, but more importantly I wonder where all that water is going. You might and up with a high bill.
You are welcome to come and check it or send Pedro for it, but you need to call a plumber.
You can make arrangements for the plumber anytime as we are home all the time.
What he doesn’t know, is, that in Spain, nothing is as it seems. My meter is the BOTTOM one ! Time for a little fun and payback 🙂 (Stay strong and to the point, Ralph). I replied with >>>
After all your nastiness, you not responding to my three emails and you denouncing myself plus Toni and Pedro plus another, you expect my help ? No way ! Keep out of our property and that includes your workmen and our water valve box. Do not touch my water valve without my permission !
Ralph, I see that your hate for me is clouding your judgement. I did not ask for your help because I do not need it, on the contrary,as a good neighbor, I pointed out a problemand in spite of your foul words for me anytime you address me, I treated you with respect and in a civilized manner. I have just informed you, thatyour leaking water pipe is destroying my property and I am sure the property on your ground floor apartment and I gave you a chance to fix it. If you do not send a plumber today to fix the pipe and my ceiling, tomorrow I will inform the authorities that you are intentionally destroying my property and that you have insulted me in your previous emails, that is the reason I have not answered you. I will inform the owner of the first floor property, I will bring a structural engineer to survey the damage done by you to my property, a plumber to fix your pipe, a mason to fix the wall, a company to kill the black mold and any other damages the you have created and I will take you to court to pay me back for all of the above plus personal damages to me and my wife.
Oh boy ! He has dug for himself a massive hole. Time to go for the jugular ! So, I gently replied >>>
Stop harassing me and threatening me ! Get your facts straight ! So sue me ! You will lose and any damages will come to me ! I want a written apology from you.
I think then he had an oopsy moment, a sort of I screwed up moment as his emails suddenly stopped coming that day.
~The Following Day~
Someone’s in my water meter box ! Probably listening to them singing ! I sent an email.
At 12:11 I saw Cameron, your “builder”, fiddling in the water meter box of 137 Cañada d r Tesoro. this is more evidence of tampering with another property without permission. BTW does Camarillo ring a bell ? Oh boy ! It’s all adding up.
I am sorry and I need to apologize, the water meter at the top belongs to Luis, the owner of the apartment on the ground floor and Camaron was working with Luis to replace the broken valve that shuts-off the water to the ground floor apartment.
The leak was in his bathroom toilet.
He APOLOGISED ! *faint* I replied >>>
Accepted ! That’s great that Luis’s problem is fixed. I just wish that Pedro being €240 out of pocket (for 4 slashed tyres) will be fixed ! Maybe it will.
However did it did not do me any service, on the contrary.
Well, that’s Karma and payback for you ! I then exclaimed >>>
Karma is working well, isn’t she ? She gives it out in spades to
anyone who upsets me, or wonders to those who are good to me. She used
water this time for those who upset me. I just had to be patient.
Thank you Karma 🙂
Pedro’s money really upsets me. So, to the person/s involved in
slashing his car tyres, she is coming big time. I will be patient.
I don’t think I told you that when I moved here and I was parking my car outside, because of the remodel, someone slashed my front tires.
That was my “Bienvenido a Estacion”.
Uh ? What ? On asking around I find that nobody who understands what the heck he’s talking about. I don’t ! So >>>
Erik Mark Hansen and your wife, Ann, you have been named and shamed !
You, dear Reader, can read a couple of awful comments about his Californian “business” on this website. Just the tip of the iceberg I expect !
Have you had a run in with anyone ?
I hated to do this post, nothing like me really, but I will not be trampled on.
No awards, no challenges, no tagging etc.. Please don’t nominate my blog as I’m lazy
Sonic practicing his Riverdance.
I’m a happy blogger
