Ms. Gertrude, forgive me for pre-judging but you will probably take the side of my neighbor. So be it.

First incident: took place a couple months ago towards the end of summer. In our neighborhood the parking of ones automobile is a premium. It was a day that was pouring rain and I had not brought an umbrella. Usually, if the parking spot in front of my house is taken I will park up the street, down the street, or around the corner. This particular day, because of the pouring rain, I parked in front of my neighbors house. I still got soaked going from my car to my house. I felt bad parking in front of my neighbors house, and I fully intended to apologize to her the next time I saw her.

She saw me before I saw her. I heard someone yell, "How dare you!". My neighbor totally berated me right there on our front lawns. I told her, "Look, in thirty years this is the first time I parked in front of your house. Usually I park up or down the street or around the corner, but it was pouring rain. There have been hundreds of times, many hundreds of times, when your lady friends parked in front of my house during the past thirty years and I never complained". She said, "Don't you dare try to shift the blame to my friends, and I don't like your tone". I replied, "Tone? What tone? You know, I fully intended to apologize to you for taking your parking spot, but now you can forget it." Then she said, "Its a shame no-one taught you manners and respect".

I was enraged as I went back to my house. But she was angry, too; I had never seen her like this. Sure, over the years she would say things which, in my opinion, were intended to berate me but I had never seen her like this. She had glared at me with her icy blue eyes, and then there was that sickening god-awful smirk. But there was something else; something had happened to me. She had looked down her long, thin, pointy nose at me and verbally humiliated me.

I did not know what to do about this but it was constantly on my mind.

Did I know what this woman was planning, if anything, to correct the situation? No. I think my thoughts, at the time, were was there anything I could do to help correct the situation.

As days went by I found it even more astounding that she, Kathy, had accused me of "attitude" after all I had done for her. There were sleepless nights for me as I tried to process all this.

And then, in a matter of weeks, incident-two took place.

Ms. Gertrude, will all respect, how can you place blame on me without knowing the facts? I thought long and hard about asking that question; I thought I read somewhere at this site that "you" may decide to arrange punishments for people like me, with people in my area. If that's where this goes, then, so be it.

I admit that incident #2 was totally my fault. Problem is, the person offended, in this case my neighbor, should get to pick the punishment, and, how much punishment. Up til a week ago that's exactly where we were.
