I'm sorry to bother you and hope this email doesn't come as an inconvenience. Especially with something that may be kind of silly.
It seems that the group next door have an issue with personal space. At least, I'm having a bit of an issue with how comfortable they are inside my space.
It's really an accumulation of several small things that kind of ends with me sending this message.
It began with them flicking cigarette butts into our yard, which was a bit of an annoyance, but I just picked them up and ignored it.
Then I found all ten of the children next door whipping rocks at the chihuahua we had, she ran away the next day, so that is no longer a concern.
Those same children also enjoy using our sidesteps as their playground (all too often they are completely naked. I have shielded myself and my children from so many genitals this month that I'm exhausted), they're very young, so I assume they don't know better. I was hoping that one of the six adults living there would, but one man likes to hang out on the steps as well, so coming and going through that door has become a bit of an issue.
He also tends to leave his things there when not in use, but only when my car isn't around. On a few occasions I stumbled upon him leaving food and drinks on my car and in one instance, he put his child on my car to use as a slide. Oh, what fun they had!
The most recent occurrence was yesterday, when he and a few others decided that their TV needed repair and felt our front entrance was the ideal location for disassembling and reassembling the set.
I've spoken to them over a few of these things, but it seems like each confrontation escalates and I thought I should contact you before things get too exciting. Although, there is a bit of a language barrier and I might be mistaking apologies as angry grunts and threats. And spitting on my car may be a way of complimenting it. It is a pretty sweet ride, after all.
If you think that I should continue managing the situation myself, please let me know and I will.
Either way, I felt my safest course of action would be to contact you and see what you thought.
I suppose it's possible that I am in the wrong and am just an unfriendly person.
As always, thank you so much for your time,
