Horrible & Obstructive Association
I can think of a good use for one of those rocks, right now!
No, he’s not. The HOA will fine you first…
The “compulsion” to conform. Today it’s rocks. What’s next?
“Why don’t you take it with you? I’ll pass one to you. Ready? Here it comes…”
My oldest lived in a HOA community. The HOA required a stool sample from each of his dogs for ID purposes using DNA. They could then ID dog’s excrement and levy fines.
I think he just grabbed two samples from the local park.
Better stay out of Nancy’s neighborhood.
Individualism? We stamp that out!
I know what the A stands for, and it isn’t “Association”. Just leave out “ociation”.
I’m fine with that.
An HOA? – Time to move away from that dictatorial regime.
Do they qualify as landscape rocks if B.C. claims they are his pet rocks?
Two rocks would be a pair of rocks.
Four rocks would be too many.
If you hit him with a rock, is he stoned?
I admit, I live in an HOA community, but for the most part, I have no issues. I’ve lived in apartments where the landlords had far more restrictions. I’ve lived in regular neighborhoods where town government had restrictions (including fining people for leaving dog excrement lying around). I suppose some HOAs let the “power” go to their heads, but ours is pretty laid back, and I gotta say, they work pretty hard to make living here reasonable.
The old saying of “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all” may apply here!
In their time it should be the COA (Cave Owners Association).
Try to collect. The. fine, not the rocks.
He’s right, of course, three rocks is too ghastly for a cave home. Now, had he decorated the third one with moss, well, then that would’ve been different.
He’s over assisting. :D
I know that some folks really like the consistency of an HOA but I could NEVER live under such micro and costly management. Not if I OWN the place..
Treasonous Trump will be chiseling rocks in Gitmo soon. Lol
And thus the development of the first trebuchet!
When the revolution comes the HOA will be the first to fall!!!!
Ridiculous! They’re out of control!
The trick to dealing with a HOA is to know where the board members live.
HOA what is that? I own all my land and house?
Third rock from the sun?
Just one of many reasons I’ll not live in an HOA neighborhood. Not that at my age I plan on moving to one.
I clipped this and taped to my front door
I think Ernie Brushmiller might disagree: Three rocks are perfect!
What do you pay the fine in? Rocks?
Okay, I’ll make it two too many!
More like the COA…
The biggest problem with HOAs is that the only people that want to be officers are the ones that love to have people under their thumb.
I think those letters should really stand for “Horribly Obnoxious (Donkey)holes”!
We have an NA (neighborhood association) with voluntary donations and few rules. There are always some people who park their RVs in the driveway or don’t prune their trees.
Just collect enough to cover the HOA inspector. Doesn’t matter then which dog, does it?
HOA’s can be good unless they are run by mini despots will illusions of grandeur, think DeSantis.
I have never had a residence that fell under the purview of an HOA. Thank dog.
If it were Gilchrist’s Nancy he’d have the right number.
And yet, some people will buy where an HOA controls everything instead of somewhere nice.
The malfunctioning educators again, this is some of the junk being taught them. “Project Renew” is failing.
About ten years ago we bought a house in an HOA near Denver. It was a foreclosure that hadn’t been lived in since April. I moved in late August and two weeks later got my notice that my yard “wasn’t up to community standards”. Really? Nice welcome to the neighborhood. Then even though there wasn’t a tree between the sidewalk and the road, we had to plant one or risk getting a tree planted by them at our (very inflated) expense. It was very obvious there hadn’t been a tree there in years. Plus it had to be on the “approved” list of acceptable trees. Happy days when we sold that house!
I have been told that by far the most calls our HOA gets relate to dogs. I said I would take all of the dog calls and handle them if they would let me have two, since I train my own dogs well and it would be no burden on anyone. That didn’t fly either. I walk through the entire complex pretty much every day at least once and I can easily point out at least one infraction that is obvious at almost every house. It’s kind of a game when I don’t have anyone other than my dog walking with me and we go several miles. I don’t report people.
HOA’s seem to be a particularly American, and maybe Russian/Nazi, phenomenon. Why do you have them?
