New Neighbor hates my cigar smoking

It's situations like that that make me glad that my nearest neighbor is across the road about 75 yards from my house. Even that's a little close for my tastes. Before I moved to my current house my nearest neighbor was about 2 miles away.

Any particular reason you choose to slam people who are gay?

Just so you know, that $hit don't fly here.
I dont think he was putting down gay people....The word gay is just another word for stupid....I think it came from the surfers

(slight threadjack follows)

The last place we rented the landlord screamed at us because:

(drumroll please)

we allowed the _neighbor's_ dog to poop on our/his yard.

I suppose we were expected to set up a twenty four/seven neighborhood dog poop watch or something.

(and anyway, we _liked_ the neighbor's dog a lot more than we liked the landlord).

I wish it weren't true, but in many places (not sure about Anaheim) it IS against the law to smoke on your own patio if there are people above you. This "right to smoke" is going bye bye at every turn.
Yeah Kommifornia is always trying to pass stupid laws....I keep asking my fiancee How are we supposed to raise kids out here anymore?

Ah, one of the benefits of living out in the middle of no-where with no neighbors- No complaints about what the heck I do on my own property. Heck, it is bad enough that I have to deal with the Mrs. about the cigar smoke, I can't imagine not even being able to smoke outside my own place.

With the regulation that is going on now of days- no smoking in bars, public areas, etc., it would kill me not to even be able to sit on my porch and smoke a cigar.

I wish all of you guys with bad neighbors the best of luck- Hopefully you can "smoke em out" of the area

I live in an apartment and have the same problem. My neighbor doesn't slam a glass door, but she insists on coming halfway down the stairs and glaring at me as I sit on my patio and smoke. Every time I just say something to the effect of "Can I help you?" and every time she stomps up the steps cussing at me in Spanish. If she was nice about it, or at least talked to me, then I'd consider smoking at different times or figure something out. Staring at me and not saying anything is not going to make me change. Until something is said, I'll enjoy my smokes as I have been in (relative) peace and quiet.

the problem is you cant make everyone happy. once they learn that maybe things would be nicer. Its really a pretty place to live. If I could afford it I would still be living out there.

Yeah maybe I should have a mini herf.....Say 8 hours out on the patio sending huge clouds of smoke up to them....

Boy are they going to hate it when I light the fire pit!

Im the same way. I get along pretty well with my neighbors and they tell me if im bothering them and I do the same. on night like last night all the windows were open so i went to the side of my townhouse so i didnt keep them up with the smoke. I think if my neighbors were mean to me about it I would not even care though. :2

I just bought a house and got really lucky that my neighbor (on one side at least) is a fellow BOTL. We've exchanged a few cigars and everything.

My neighbors complain to my landlord about me all the time. They say I sit in my apt. smoking cheap cigars the first time I heard word of this was the night after I smoked an opus. After a few months the insert of a glade plug in suspiciously showed up on top of the light next to my door (it smells terrible). No one has come to talk to me about it besides my landlord and property manager. All of whom I have given cigars or cookies to(I like to cook). Meanwhile I have never once gone to the landlord about the vile smells of boiling horseflesh coming from some of my neighbors apartments. As I'm sure they aren't fond of the smell of my italian cooking. Mainly because people have the right to be left alone.

Oh, I don't care, and I won't until she is civilized about it. For a while there was an elderly man that lived across from me. He asked that I didn't smoke outside when he was on his walk. I fully respected that and altered accordingly. The difference was that he was very respectful and kind about it.

Gah, LUCKY! I'll trade you (neighbors, I mean).

I suddenly feel a lot luckier now about my neighbors after having read this topic. I guess it never occured to me someone would actually give you a hard time about doing your thing on your own property.

I wouldn't deliberatly piss people off... I just constantly think, People are Stupid... not in a mean way, just they are. Because they'll do stupid things, like cut you off, slam doors, etc...

This is just a suggestion: Rather than have a passive-aggressive herf to strike back at your neighbors -- which certainly isn't going to bridge any gaps -- you might try a different tact. Rather than behave like the obnoxious inconsiderate SOBs your neighbors already take you (and likely all other cigar smokers) to be, try rising above it. Take the initiative. Approach them in an attempt to reach an accord. You might actually change their minds about cigar smokers, and maybe even cigars. :2
