Just a rant

Just a rant, I’m super irritated. We moved into this neighbourhood last summer, so summer of 2016. When winter came, someone would use a snowblower and clear the whole block. Except for our house. My son has autism and ia severely disabled, so while last winter this irritated me I forgot about when summer came.

But this year again, the whole block all the way around is nice and clear, even where there are empty houses, this man cleans Everyones front, except for mine.

Now its not about me being entitled if that’s the way it’s coming off. I just feel really disliked, obviously someone has something against me, my family stands out to this person as he deliberately avoids clearing the path in front on my home. He skips it and continues to clear my other neighbours path, and even the houses that are up for sale.

ANOTHER GREAT POST:  New Attractions. No parking.

I dont mind cleaning the snow, I just want to know what his problem is. And if I confront him, is that even going to change anything? Maybe he gets my all the neighbours to do it And I just don’t know yet? What’s everyone’s opinion.

    This is being done intentionally. I would scoop up all your snow and deposit it on his sidewalk with a note saying, “You forgot to clear this!” or something like that!! 😉 Too bad he’s treating you that way. There’s one passive-aggressive neighbor on every block.

      Brian Booth, it’s unfortunate that you feel your poison is best spent firing in my direction. You really don’t see what a total hypocrite you are, do you? Obviously you need a more positive outlet for your rage then to over react towards a total stranger but I understand that a forum like this can give you a false sense of safety to express your toxic emotions without direct consequences, as I suspect your negativity has already caused enough damage in your daily life and that it has cost you dearly. Still, public news feeds aren’t the place for people like you to rage out in and sadly, there are a lot of your type on here. I really meant it when I said I would pray for you. I know there is more going on inside of you then what you are trying so hard to pretend doesn’t exist so you do have my sympathy, as does your family. Take care.

    I don’t know what mentioning your child has to do with it. Maybe you’re a dick who parks in front of his house or don’t take care of your property. There’s more than you’re saying and bringing your child into it for attention.

    • I think they’re worried it is the problem.

    • She said he’s severely disabled…maybe in a wheelchair. I could see how snow would be a pain in the ass if he has equipment he needs to use to help him.

      [0]
    • I doubt they’re using their child for attention; maybe the neighbor is a judgemental prick. Especially, as it’s stated, the neighbor skips the OP’s path and continues on to clear the next one.

      [0]
    • Jules Maria Jules Maria says:

      Highly doubt it. If the kid is in wheelchair I’d be more inclined to help out.

      [0]
    • Since my daughter is disabled, I always wonder if someone excludes me from something for no particular reason, if its because they aren’t comfortable with her etc. Your mind usually goes straight there as a parent of a disabled child.

      [0]
    • Jules, I think you could be very right, there could be other reasons why they are not clearing the walk. Some people are judgemental of situations they see or hear, maybe they mistook something. Also, when a parent is feeling judged by society, family , friends or constantly feel they have to defend their children’s actions when they are being caused by a disability they can become sensitive and assume the worst.
      Hopefully it’s not a case of someone being rude and a little conversation can reveal why this hone is being excluded.

      I personally would say hi, let them know I’m interested in them clearing my walk way too, even for a price and maybe let them know the family challenge with a disabled child , maybe this person didn’t realize and would be happy to help.

  7. Tanita Faye Tanita Faye says:

    I would ask him. But honestly if it’s just someone doing it for those people unfortunately there’s nothing you can do. It is what it is. But ask the person before assuming much. And do not do what Shawna Perez said… whoever he/she is, is not responsible for clearing it. If they do its a courtesy. So you can’t expect it one way or the other and you certainly shouldn’t start a feud or leaving snow on their property because of it. This person owes you nothing… but they should do yours if doing everyone else’s. But again they don’t have to. You can always ask about it

    • I was going to say if she confront him and he tells her because he just doesn’t want to, or because he doesn’t like her, then nothing will get resolved and she’ll end up sadder.

      Yeah its possible but at the end of the day I’d rather know honest truth whether someone likes me or not. Maybe this person has some other reason, but she’ll never know unless she asks. All this here is just an assumption. Kinda silly really… lol

  10. Have you watched him do this? Can you say %100 its one man doing all the other walks? Maybe its not just you but the other neighbours clear their walks quickly as well. If it really upsets you, why not talk to him next time he is clearing walks, say “You are so kind to clear everyone’s walkways, Your snow blower does an amazing job, i was wondering if i have maybe upset you in some way though as my walk isint done. Strictly curious, not asking you to do mine as well”

    [0]
    • good point, there was someone that posted something similar on a local group and everyone else from that block started posting in reply that they all do theirs early in the am before going to work, so all the neighbor’s are out before 7 am getting their walks done, so when this person got up in the am the rest of the block was done but not their house. No one was excluding her, she just simply wasn’t up as early as the rest of them. Made her look like an entitled whiner to have made her woe is me post.

      [0]
    • i do mine right after it snows, night or before i go to work in the morning, all my neighbours did the same when i lived in the city and there was the one guy on our block who never cleared his yet complained that ours were done and his werent. Thats why I dont believe one guy clears the block she just hasnt taken time to really look around and notice whats going on

      [0]
  11. They may have hired his services. Or perhaps the previous owners told him not to do their sidewalks. Know what? If you ask him, he will probably tell you the reason. Next time it snows, make a cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate for him, and go say hi.

  14. Since you stated your son has autism ..maybe he knows this and does not do your walk as he does not know what may or may not bother him and is being respectful…talk to him

  15. Barb Haekel Barb Haekel says:

    maybe all the neighbors pitch in together and pay for someone to come do the walks? Sounds like you haven’t talked to any of the neighbors at all and doing so would be a good start.

    [0]
  16. Why did you need to point out your child has autism? What’s that for to do with this?

    [0]
  17. As inconvenient and rude as this feels to you, here are the facts:

    Assholes will always exist, everywhere. (Yes, even in Canada).

    However, based on the statement of “confront him” as oppsed to speak to him, or ask him, it makes me feel like maybe you are a person that comes off as unkind or unpleasant (which isn’t necessarily true! All people present themselves differently, and your situation may be particularly stressful). Try smiling at him, or giving him a wave if you haven’t. Try being outwardly overly kind (even if it goes against your nature of typically being shy or quiet)… You may find it will improve your sitiation immensley.

    Lastly, do you rent from a private owner? Sometimes areas will pay someone to do this (condos, community leagues even groups of people who live on the same block) and the owner of your home may have not paid, or opted out, and this may in fact have nothing to do with you or him AT ALL, and is purely business.

    Either way, the best thing to do is kindly ask him how one goes about getting his help with their own walks as well, and see where it takes you =)

    [0]
  18. If you see him coming by one day grab your shovel and go out to do yours and strike up a conversation with him. I’m sure it will come up casually. Say something like.. Sure would be much easier with one of those… see if he offers, if not, Just let it go.

    [0]
    • I like this idea!! It’s so awkward to bring this up…it sounds needy…but to have it come up “organically” like this is a great way to do it without anyone feeling confrontational or defensive. I hope the OP considers trying this!

    • If hes a next door neighbor, go shovel your snow, when you know hes home, then also shovel his front sidewalk. Make loud scaping noises, lol. If he comes out. tell you notice his good deeds and felt like paying it forward to him.

  24. Trina Deagle Trina Deagle says:

    I would talk to him about it. I would just say something like “I noticed you clean off everyone’s sidewalks but leave mine. I can’t help but feel like I have done something to anger you. Is there something I have done?” That will open up the conversation without asking him to do yours as well. There is the chance to fix a wrong if it has occurred, or clear up the reasoning behind it if nothing has happened.

    • Sara Lynne Sara Lynne says:

      I agree. And also, self-evaluate… do you frequently park in front of the other person’s home? Do you keep your lawn looking good in the Summer? Is your property well-cared for? What could you be doing that might annoy the neighbor?

      If there is something, decide if it is worth fixing. If there isn’t something, decide whether it bothers you enough that you want to ask your neighbor.

      I usually just go as far as I have the energy for when snow blowing or shoveling. It isn’t personal, I just get tired around the same house all of the time.

    or just do your own and forget him

    [0]
  27. Curious if there is pre-existing bad blood here? Or have you never spoken with him before?

    Personally, if I were in this situation, I would wait until I see him and then actually just ask him straight up. “Hey there, I’m not trying be rude or confrontational or anything, but I’m just genuinely curious if there is a reason everyone else’s driveways and side walks have been snow blown? I’m totally cool with shovelling my own, I’m just wondering if there is something I’m missing or something I should know about?”

    He might tell you it’s because he hates you, or maybe he hasn’t done it because he’s not sure if you want him to? Maybe he has a long standing agreement with the other neighbours? Whatever his reason is, I believe it is important to thank him for his honesty and his time. You may not like the answer he gives you, but at least your getting one. Remember to be polite, he isn’t obligated to clear your snow.

    I used to have a neighbour who would clear his snow and then come over and do ours as well, he never did his other neighbours snow though. I used to bake him cookies and brownies as a way of saying thank you, they probably didn’t.

    [0]
  28. Are you sure it is 1 person out doing it? Have you actually seen him clean every sidewalk except for yours? I have seen posts like these in the past on a local group (not an anonymous one), and someone was posting just like you are that someone did everyone’s but her’s. Nope every neighbor did their own, they were just out doing it before she was even up in the am. No one was excluding her, they were just taking care of their own. And because it was not an anon page, everyone could see who it was and her neighbors could call her out on the bs. Like this post it made her look entitled and whiny.

    [0]
  29. I don’t want to get into the whole neighbor dispute thing. Maybe he noticed that your son has autism and isn’t doing it for fear he may inadvertently do something that might upset him? Not a lot of people know what autism is unless they see it on some Hollywood movie (which is portrayed in the extreme spectrum and mischaracterized). Perhaps have a conversation with him (don’t bring up the snow blowing thing) and just chat. If you can’t figure out what you’ve done to the guy then chances are you haven’t done anything and he’s more concerned about causing you trouble and maybe he’s afraid that he might offend you if he brings it up.

  43. What does having a special needs child have to do with clearing your walk? Seems like that doesn’t fit with the rest of the story.
    Also, just because everyone else seems to get their walks done in no way entitles you to having yours done. If you were paying a company to do the whole block, absolutely but in this case no. You stated your son is special needs. Perhaps this person knows this and is concerned that your son might react badly to the sound or an unfamiliar person on their property. Perhaps the neighbours pay him. Perhaps there’s a million other things that are happening but because you won’t talk to him you are just making assumptions. Go and ask him if there’s any way you could join in and pay for it. Stop assuming.

    [0]
    • I don’t think the OP is “assuming” anything, they’re asking about advice. And thinking of reasons why he might be avoiding her. I have a daughter with special needs, and when I’m excluded from somewhere I right away think it’s because people are uncomfortable with her etc, its just natural for me to think that way. That’s why she mentioned her son.

      [0]
    • Camilla Chameleon I completely get that but it just seemed like a “why does no one do my walks? I’m upset about this. Also, my child is special needs”. It didn’t really make sense. And they are making assumptions about why the neighbour doesn’t do their walks rather than just talking to them.

      [0]
    • Candice if it seemed that way you didn’t read it right. Try again. This person is clearly upset at being excluded. [S]he specifically said it had nothing to do with the person not doing their walk way.

    Lol. What the hell. Just go talk to him. Have you ever talked to him? Maybe that’s why. You don’t have the full story, maybe the neighbours pay him, and he does the houses for sale just because nobody is doing them.

    Seriously. Have you ever talked to him?? Wow. You must be a millennial. It’s your street, your responsibility! If that happened to me I’d just shrug it off! You do sound entitled when you don’t even bother asking him or the neighbours about it and you assume that he dislikes you.

    [0]
  45. No-one has to do anything for you. It does sound like you expect this person to do what you can do yourself but won’t. Get over it your not all that. People don’t have to do anything that they don’t chose to. It sounds like this person has chosen not to snow blow your walk. This person isn’t going to get the fine for a unshoveled sidewalk. You are. Shovel your walk and move on with your life.

    • “Get over it your not all that” wtf? Person isn’t expecting anyone to do it, they’re just personally offended, and wondering what they did wrong that this person clearly dislikes her. I think it’s a pretty simple post. She should just talk to him, people are probably paying him.

Although you think you do from my posting you do not anymore than I know you. People come on this page and dump their problems and think that’ll show that person. It sounds to me like she expects this person to clear her walk. All she needs to do is talk to this person and ask him. She is personalizing it think it’s because she has a serverally handicapped child who happens to have autism.

    You answered your own question, why would you expect someone to clear your snow just because you assume they are doing your neighbors? You are annoyed at the fact that someone you don’t know doesn’t do things for you? I am assuming that you are a millennial and are feeling that you are entitled to things just because other people get them. Get off your ass, and clear your own snow. The fact that you have a child with autism entitles you to nothing. You moved into a new neighborhood, didn’t put in the effort to meet your new neighbors and are now annoyed at the fact that they don’t just do stuff for you. Grow up and take some responsibility for yourself.

    [0]
  52. It’s your walk. Shovel it and grow up. Butt hurt because someone left you out? Where in the world does it say you have to be let in. Where’s this entitlement coming from? Really. It’s a courtesy to do someone else’s shoveling. So what if he doesn’t like you or your kid? Honestly? Are you in desperate need of their attention and friendship? What does it matter? If it really means that much to you make the first move. Do his and see if he returns the favor. If not you now that you’re a good neighbor and move on.

    It may have been to do with the person living there befor and he has no idea your new(er) or that your not related to the previous person. Or one of a million things. Now personally I’d be going over why and contemplate talking to them as well. But you don’t know what your getting into approaching this. I’d pick my battles and not say anything. Shovel my own walk. Only because the risk of creating a more hostile environment is too great when you have enough stress. If there was a real big issue example blocking your walk way I’d say something as that’s of more importance. I hope this helps

    Maybe the op hasn’t put themselves out there as a good neighbor. Like during the summer have they bothered to say hi or wave to the neighbors? I’ve lived in my home for 3 yrs (come Dec 1) and I know all my neighbors around us, about 10 or so homes. It wasn’t easy being the new guy on the block but it sure is nice knowing everyone. I have 2 neighbors that snow blow my walks and in the fall I drop off some canning I’ve done for the year. You have to first be a neighbor to others.

    I feel like this is extremely petty. It’s a tiny little section. Clearly it’s being avoided on purpose. Just speak up, next time you see him out doing it, ask politely if you could pay him to possibly get in front of your house as well. Kindness wins

    I’m guessing he thinks you have a completely capable child to do chores,like shovelling the walk. From a neighbours point of view,all he knows is you have a kid,when I was a kid I shoveled the walks,your neighbour probably did also. Maybe he isn’t aware that autism prevents him from doing this. Maybe just ask him,while holding a nice warm cup of hot chocolate. Have you even introduced yourself? He seems like a nice guy,so just go talk to him….with a nice warm cup of hot chocolate!

    You said u were new to the neighborhood, and whoever cleans the snow, does this person know you? Have you ever went up to this person and introduced yourself to him? Maybe this person who Cleans the snow, doesn’t know if you want him to clean your snow. I have a neighbor right next to me, who has asked me not to clean his driveway or sidewalk. I understand you have a son who is autistic, but have you gone outside to clean your own snow, and then take it upon yourself to Clean your neighbors sidewalk. Maybe then he’ll see your trying to be nice and helping others, instead of complaining over stupid snow.

    I am so happy you’re not my neighbor! Who cares what your problems are.. everyone has their own struggles to get through. Entitled to snow blowing NOT! Get off your ass and get your own snowblower!

  65. Maybe hes getting paid to do this by neighbors.

    Who cares shovel your own. Don’t worry yourself about the actions of others

  68. I understand the ego hurt. But you already know that it’s your responsibility to shovel your walk. Expecti g goodwill is as ad as begging for it when you don’t actually need it. Shovel your walk and your neighbors if you can. Then goodwill will follow

  69. Just ask, it’s easier and will get it resolved faster. “Hey does everyone take turns or chip in for all the walkways to be done because I would love to take part?”

  70. Why don’t you just ask what’s the problem and then again who cares go grab a shovel like the rest of us ! Maybe do his walk and he have a change of heart !!

    [0]
  71. I would definitely shovel your sidewalk!

    [0]
  72. Talk to him maybe? I would start by “hey, you do a nice job on all of the walks, how much are you charging because I would love to get mine done too” and see what he says. You might find out that they are either paying him, or are his friends,etc. Doesn’t hurt to communicate in person politely in this day and age.

    Either talk to the guy or do it yourself. There’s really no reason to complain about it until you do your part.

    I think you need to chill out and not take it so personal! You haven’t got the faintest clue as to why he doesn’t shovel YOUR walks. Well guess what. Neither do any of us! He doesn’t HAVE to shovel YOUR walks if he doesn’t want to either. It would be a nice gesture if he did, but to be all bent out of shape about it is actually kind of selfish. If it bothers you so much, just ask him. It a not like things will get any worse. All that will happen is that you will have to shovel your own walks! They are YOUR walks after all.

  75. Just approach him and ask what it would take to have your walks done.
    The worst he can do is say no.

    Always. Important to welcome them to the neighborhood. Not easy being the “new kid on the block”

  77. Pagan Heart Pagan Heart says:

    If I knew where you lived Id drive there and clear it myself for you.

    [0]
  78. I wouldn’t ask why he doesn’t clear your walk. I’d just ask if you’ve done something to offend or upset him…

  79. Angela Chwyl Angela Chwyl says:

    Maybe they pay him?

    maybe all the other neighbours pay this guy money to do their walks, throw him a $20 bill lol

  81. Chris Miles Chris Miles says:

    You are all so mean … if this guy wants to be a professional victim, may as well let him.

    [0]
  82. You would ask people that are in no way able to answer and not ask the one person that can? What is wrong with you? If it puts a bee in your bonnet and makes you wonder, ASK HIM!

    [0]
  83. Just clean ur part and.forget that he even exists!

    [0]
  84. They probably paid him to do their walk. Just talk to the person. You are taking this way too personally.

    [0]
  85. The fact that you had to mention having a special needs son, while talking about snow removal tells me you feel entitled

    [0]
  86. Perhaps he cant do it due to a limitation which is really none of your business. As a neighbour why dont you do it or switch off with the neighbour on the other side.

  87. Zayna Osman Zayna Osman says:

    Ever thought that maybe everyone on the block pitches in money whether it’s something minimal or not to snow blow their snow. My old neighbors use todo that. We pitched in to pay for the gas for the entire winter. Talk to your neighbor. Don’t be an asshat
