321: Karma At Her Best

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 yours and 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 !
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 problem and 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, that your 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 >>>
Good !
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.
Deathly silence

~This Morning~


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.

      Good idea ! A series on “Naked gold mining in six foot snow drifts in Alaska” would be more fun than a “Living next to this lot” series.

      Honestly my neighbourhood should be really quiet with the only excitement being a sheep escaping onto the road. Amazingly something always happens to give me blog fodder and these new neighbours have given me blog fodder in spades. I really do hope that this post is the last you and I hear from them.
      I agree. I do believe in Karma as I have seen her in action many times.
      Thank heavens you have no run ins with anyone.

Anyway after going titz at this wee girl taking the football and shouting ‘NUT’ at me after I said would you not like to be friends with this nice wee girl and share the football, ten mins later he fair chummed up with her. It was hysterical. She was in a terrible state when she had to leave, it started all the other tots off, wailing and bawling. Anyway, oor wee man was giving her big cuddles and kisses and going,’ No you worry. You come back.’ Have not laughed so much in ages.

  4. Interesting read about his company….. It is hard to have such a neighbour. At least Karma is on your side, which is brilliant. Otherwise I would stay away from them as much as possible, personally and professionally. Wonder why they came to Spain, to your village. I should have bought that flat as a summer residence really, I know you and Toni as the loveliest neighbours.

    • Hello dear Ute 🙂
      Yes, it is interesting reading about his company. Toni found this website and passed it on to me. I may pass the link to this post onto the commenters who had problems with him just to see if there is more information out there about just what he was doing.
      I have been staying away from them and his first email about the water problem was the first communication I have had with them for months.
      I am also wondering why they are hiding away in this Spanish mountain village. There must be more to their story out there somewhere.
      I am so lucky to have Toni’s family as neighbours. I have known them for 13 years and we have never had a bad word to say about each other. Then the Tornado of the new neighbours arrived, but they have changed from manic noise to total silence day after day unless the builders are in their home. Really weird !
      Have a lovely week my friend. Ralph xox ❤

      I am sure you are right. From what I know of him and his wife, they seem to think that they are perfect and everyone else is tainting their perfection, whereas everyone else can read them like a book. Even the Spanish ! I am so glad that I had the opening for him to realise his imperfection. The last couple of days they have gone very quiet. Thank heavens for that !
      Anyway, thank you so much for your input my friend.

  9. Good fur you, Ralph. Our ‘partment manager hates mommy and has tried everything including flooding our apartment to get her out of here. She even tried to evict her without notifying the management company. Well, mommy’s no fool and she’s a lot smarter than our ‘partment manager. We’re still here. We’re actually in our newly remodeled apartment and the manager’s not allowed to come inside fur any reason. We;re renewing our lease in a couple of months fur the second year since she flooded us. MOL We don’t believe in Karma, but purrhaps…

  12. Hi MFR. Your post is like a soap opera. My friend Sally has a neighbor like that. He actually shot a gun threateningly while they were having an event. They host weddings, etc. He has taken them to the county to complain and has put a fence right out on the street, so it is almost impossible to back out of their driveways. He’s pretty wacko, but your NNeighbor sounds just as bad, if not worse. There are some pretty bad ones out there, but we’ve always been separated by at least one house. Maybe they will move soon! If not, you could come to California. That would fix them. 🙂
