The Houston Chronicle has the story.
A front-yard sign calling a neighbor a “douchebag” may not be the best way to change the neighbor’s behavior.
But for one frustrated Farmers Branch family, it’s at least getting a lot of attention.
James and Lisa Price — who have a sign in their yard that says “‘House for sale by owner because my neighbor’s a douchebag” — have appeared on Dallas TV and now say they’re getting calls from New York news outlets.
The sign went up Aug. 7, after months of tension between the Prices and their next door neighbors culminated in the Prices getting a $121 ticket from the city over their dogs, James Price said Friday.
Shortly after a retired couple moved into the rental house next door about two years ago, Price said the wife came over “a few times” to ask that the Prices keep their four dogs inside the house until 9 a.m. because the retirees liked to sleep late.
“We’re trying to keep them in until 8,” Price said. “I think the city ordinance says 7.”
