Hating Neighbors

I was wondering if anybody else has this problem. I live in a nice neighborhood. I love the place but I ve some hating neighbors. Everytime I was my bimmer the neighbor come and sit outside and watch me. One of them walked over yesterday and said it was bad luck to wash your car. N I think when you wash your ride you are just showing off. Really? Has anyone experience this kind of hate cuz you own a bimmer?

That's pretty lame of them. I wouldn't let it bother you. Is it just one neighbor or multiple?

There are plenty of people who have never washed their own car by hand, so I can certainly see why they might think you're showing off. Just tell them you worked hard to buy the car and you'd like to take care of it.

They are envious because you've got a cool car and they probably have some boring stuff themselves

Let me guess, they're in their 60's with nothing else to do all day?

PS
Bad luck??? For whom? The neighborhood will burn down? Geez.

Tell them that washing your car (rather than going to a car wash) is just one of the many little ways you saved money over the years which enabled you to buy the car.

One of the reasons why I'm only going with an intake and no exhaust. Most of the people in my cul de sac are old. They wouldn't understand.

Hey, I'm 57 and I drive a Z4 M Roadster. If I was his neighbor I'd have been over there admiring the car and talking shop

Not all of us older guys look or act old (and I intend to do my best to keep it that way, lol. Come to think of it, time to go to the gym )

I'm 71, and tired of all this stereotyping of "old people"!! One of my neighbors saw me washing my Z4 shortly after I got it. He told me "You're an asshole!" And he was in his 50's!

when i was in college i picked up my first new benz and the sales guy basically told me to get ready to be hated on... he said, "get ready for people to cut you off more than usual, try to race you more than usual, tailgate you, flash you and even purposely scratch your car"

He called you that for getting a BMW?

Put a gun rack and some mud flaps on and you'll be fine.

You should set up one of those big bouncy castles in your front yard. See how they like that.
