Funny Foto Friday: My Neighbors Underwear

I seriously couldn't make this up if I tried....

My next door neighbors are VERY nice.  In fact, they are the best kind of neighbors.  They are pretty quiet but are friendly - to the point that they'll even chat with me while I'm doing yard work without a shirt on.  I haven't ever borrowed any sugar from them, but after what I found a few days ago, I am not sure that I would want to......

One day after work I was hanging out in the back yard and I noticed something strange between the wall that I share with my neighbor and my pool.   Of course, not one to leave random white blobs alone in my back yard, I went in to investigate.



It was only that I got on top of it that I discovered the horrible horrible truth.  My neighbors underwear were in my yard.  To my extreme disappointment, they weren't something lacy and fun, they were something tighty-whitey and had a drawstring(!?!?!)

As you can imagine, I had two horrible options:
1. Put on a radiation suit and toss them back over the wall
1. Pick them up and throw them away
2. Let them lay there and see if an underwear tree grew throughout the summer

So, of course I picked them up.  But, by god I didn't like it.  What I think MIGHT have happened is that our neighbor's 3 year old son might have snagged them off of the wall and threw them over while mom and dad weren't watching.  (Honestly, what I like to think happened is that they were watching him in horror as he grabbed them, ran towards our wall, and tossed them over..... who would want to make THAT door-bell ring?  "Umm, hi Adam, Can I come get my underwear out of your lawn?")


Finally, after all of the trauma of picking up the "article", my wife decided to take a few self portraits of herself and my son......to which I quickly decided to Photo Bomb. :)  Happy Friday!

ACTUALLY... what I'm pretty sure happened is that they decided to take a midnight dip when yall were asleep. I know, I know. People can appear very nice and timid, but when the lights go out....

HHAHAH :D

With the drawstring, maybe that's a bathing suit bottom? Anyhow...very brave of you to picking it up.

Christi said...

You son is adorable!

Julie said...

No gloves?!? I would have worn gloves before touching them. Is that weird?

Julie said...

You must have been totally stoked about the blogging opportunity, though! I would have been :D

Tim Wilson said...

Hmmmm, blaming it on the neighbors huh? What you and your wife do in the privacy of your fortified backyard pool after the lights go down is none of our business.... but blaming it on the neighbors to save a little face? Hmmmmmm.

If this ever happens to me and my neighbors... I am moving.

Tricia said...

ahh baby. I hear that kiddo gives Dash a run for his money in the "best kid on earth" category. A little birdy told me he is super calm and sweet and just the best thing ever. please can I have him?:)

Johann said...

Haha, that is scary! At least they look clean and skid-marks free...

Zaneta said...

gross! haha...

LOVE the "family portrait" at the end ;) clever lol

Adrienne said...

I really can't blame the 3 year old. He only gets whitie tighties when there is batman, superman, spongebob and endless other possibilities of underoos out there. His parents should have seen the ditch coming.

Photo bomb pic is sweet :)

Chad said...

Looks like his speedo. He probably hung it up to dry and the wind (it's been windy!) blew it over.
Still gross.

Runners Fuel said...

That is pretty gross! I would have picked them up with a shovel.

JessiePants said...

HA! I some how am envisioning a warped version of The Burbs here...
Love the photo, it just wouldn't be complete without you in the background : )

Suza said...

You gotta frame that family pic, it's priceless!!

Looked like a ladies swim suit bottom to me. She may be looking for it!

Glenn Jones said...

And of course, some joker just *has* to be in the photo...

jess said...

bahhahahahah I can not stop laughing over this post. It is so hilarious, especially your 'photo bomb' picture. Ohhhh priceless!!!!

Jill said...

I can't believe you touched them. Ewwww.

I'M Tri-ing said...

Ahh...there they are, sorry about that.

SupermomE12 said...

I sure hope your neighbors don't read your blog. I bet they would die of embarrassment!!

I don't understand the draw string.

funderson said...

She's got to have the patience of a saint...

If you're gonna pick them up, at least have the common courtesy of checking for skid marks.

Your first thought had to be, "Well, this post is gonna write itself!"

SquirrelHead said...

That's my bad, I jumped the fence to swim in your pool and decided to let it all hang out as I swam. Well, a light flicked on and I panicked and run for it. I thought I had grabbed all of my clothes but realized a few blocks down the street I had lost my sweet adjustable underoos. Can I get them back? The ladies love them.

XLMIC said...

Is that what they call a "lawn" in Arizona? lol

Those undies look very clean from the picture... you all are so squeamish! I handle sh... stuff way grosser than that every day... and as you have a baby, I'll bet YOU do, too!

I'd have just tossed 'em back over. And if they were mine (which they wouldn't be ;-) ), I'd have made that door-bell ring with a smile :)

LOVE that pic bomb!!!

Run Jess Run said...

Are you sure they weren't just bikini bottoms?? I don't think I know anyone who wears underwear with drawstrings...those things could get a little complicated in certain situations.

I think I've got you beat on the weird neighbor phenomenon. Long story short, our immediate next door neighbor spent months masturbating facing straight ahead in clear view in front of his window, which was directly across from the window where I used to have to do dishes (or else leave them dirty). Needless to say, we opted for take-out and paper plates on a regular basis.

Listen up. The only real way to save the Coyotes at this point is with this:

"The Green Bay Packers Board of Directors is the organization that serves as the owner of record for the Green Bay Packers football club. The Packers have been a publicly owned, non-profit corporation since August 18, 1923."

That's right, a board of directors type of ownership where anybody, anywhere who wants the Coyotes to stay in Glendale can purchase a stake into the team. Best of all, the taxpayers of Glendale (especially the ones who don't support the team) don't have to fork over a single penny if they don't want to. Remember, if the taxpayers are not paying for it, then Goldwater backs off.

I know that the NHL board of governors are not crazy about a Green Bay Packers type of ownership, but if they (and the Glendale city council) really want the Coyotes to stay, then they have no choice but to make an exception to the Coyotes and allow them to have a board of directors type of ownership.

So for those of you who want the Coyotes to stay, spread the word. Get this message posted to as many places as possible while there's still time and if you can get this message to Gary Bettman and the B.O.G., that's even better. With everybody's help, the Coyotes will be saved! So spread the word right now or watch the Coyotes relocate to Winnipeg or Kansas City instead.

OH my goodness, that is horrible!! Did you end up throwing them back over the wall?

BrianFlash said...

Oh how I wish all that would grow in my lawn is rocks. That would simplify my gardening tremendously!

You have a pool? I don't know if I am allowed to hang out with the beautiful people...
