CONTROVERSIAL LAWN DECORATION IGNITES BATTLE IN NEIGHBORHOOD
You never can tell what’s going to upset a neighbor. A Reddit user recently posted on the site about her quest to get her neighbor to remove a frog lawn ornament. In the post she explains that she walks through the neighborhood each day with her husband and six-year-old daughter, and that the daughter finds the frog statuette, which is holding a jar, creepy.
The poster writes, “I find it really creepy… my daughter hates it. She is absolutely terrified of it. Now she refuses to go on walks.” She adds that she asked the owners to move the statuette, but they declined.
She then reached out to a neighbor, who is vice president of the Homeowners Association (HOA)—who then ruled the statuette is a violation of HOA bylaws, so the frog’s owners were forced to take it down and are now being fined.
The post has hundreds of comments on Reddit and has gone viral on Twitter. Many commenters disapprove of the woman’s choices regarding the statue—saying she took things too far or that she’s teaching her daughter to be entitled.
