    We have an irrigation pump, that in dry weather we use to water the fields.
    We have a neighbor who lives roughly 1/2 mile from the pump who has:
    Claimed we are causing 'noise pollution' at his house.
    Claimed the pump is on state land
    Claimed the pump is on HIS land
    And threatened to sue.

    Unfortunately, he has a lot of money, and goes through official channels, and likes to threaten people with his lawyer. He is costing us a lot of money and time.
    I find myself wishing my witch-like powers would strike him with a hangnail.

    Oooh. I had a bad neighbor who was pretty and creepy. It got to the point where he would harass us by standing in his backyard and stare at us through binoculars

    We would grab our binos and stare right back.

    The sprinkler and reel in action.

    Everyone--from other neighbors to the staties--are getting sick of him. He even brought some bigwig from an environmentalist group out onto out land (WITHOUT PERMISSION) and tried to 'prove' we were killing fish and frogs.

    Well, there is a special SCREEN on the intake pipe specifically to prevent debris from entering the the system.

    My parents ran into them purely by chance and politely insisted on contact info for the lady so they could call and ask who the bleep she was later, and said she was deeply uncomfortable about the whole thing--and had no idea they were on the land without permission!

    Some people need to get a life, preferably their own!

    His daughter literally just got married a few weeks ago. I have NO idea why he has been wasting so much time and energy on this when there was a WEDDING to prepare for!

    Some farmers around here had very lengthy signs on the entrance to their property that said basically, 'Farming involves using loud machinery, dust and such - get over it.'

    The content of the signs was based on law and precedence. It wasn't just a git out mah yard type thing.
