So ghetto.



You know I love to share things that I have never seen before. And this is truly a first.

These people are putting up used garage doors as fencing. I'm assuming they are garage door installers who have tons of this crap laying around, but wow I don't get this at all. Especially for what pretty much amounts to about 30 feet of fence. I haven't checked lumber prices recently, but I'd guess this would be about 500 bucks. That would really suck to have to sell your house if you live next to that. People would stroll up and be like - NOPE - I'm out.

  1. Wow. I know I've been talking about this for a few months now but when people start confirming my bias I just think - eff me. Between you and Robert Schiller I just have to center myself. Last week I was fake news.... (because anyone who says anything bad about the economy is.)( Said in the most sarcastic way) this week.... genius!

    People ~are~ just really creative in their asshollery though. I would have never dreamed someone would use garage doors for fencing. I don't even know what I would do if I lived next door to them. I'd be thinking - how do I sell this house!

  4. Thats....different. On the other hand, that sort of "annoy the neighbors" might be the point.

  5. Oh - that's a perspective I hadn't thought of. If they are in some crazy neighbor war - this guy wins. That is next level creative.

  6. You get to experience Mexico without having to go there! Surely this cannot be up to code?

  7. Mark,

    But Mexico is such a NICE place. Who would want to leave that wonderful utopia?

  8. "Surely this cannot be up to code"

    I think unless they are in an HOA it's legal. Height is really the only code they would run into, and it's not above the limit.

    The thing is - I'm the biggest person for property rights.... but this is bullshit. It not only makes it so their house is hard to sell, but it makes the houses all around it hard to sell. You just have to hope they pop out by losing their house in some way. It makes no sense at all.

  9. I like it -- this is truth in advertising.

    I would definitely like to know if I'm going to move into a neighborhood with a serious asshole problem in it.

    So if that's what this guy is really doing, thanks for telling the truth, Speaker to Assholes Guy. :-)

  10. Yeah. That is a good point. I think you are right. Better to know right from the go.
