...which, by itself, is not so unusual. After all, people paint houses all the time. I, myself, once painted a house. Well, which is to say, I have paid someone else to paint a house while I sat and sipped lemonade.
But I digress.
What is not so remarkable as the fact of the painting per se, or even the manner in which it was accomplished, but rather the end result. Now, houses are generally painted in a variety of colors. Browns are quite popular, generally. Earth tones. The occaisonal burnt orange... sienna... a lovely shade of blue every now and again. Generally agreeable colors, all.
My neighbor's house looks like a banana lost a fight with a clown.
This paint job is truly inescapable. No matter where you are on the street, or what you may be looking at, your attention is inevitably drawn back to this gut-churning monstrosity. We have no homeowner's association, so there's really nobody to complain to. I don't think there's actually any law that says you're not allowed to paint your suburban tract home like a Vietnamese whorehouse... it's a big problem, though. You want to see people really, truly angry? Mess with their property values. It's not even the glare of a thousand burning lollipops emanating from the house - it's what a color schema like that says about the owner. Would you want to live next to a whack-job like that? Neither would anybody who would ever consider buying a house in our nieghborhood, ever again.
What the hell can be done, short of a molotov cocktail? Is there any remediation for something like this? Does anyone have experience with a neighbor like this?
