I have always played by the rules. In truth, I have always taken great pride in our ethics plus fair play. Yet, when rules are applied disproportionately or even unfairly, then I tend to get all fired up about it. I just can’t sit it when there are special favors given to some while others face very drastic penalties. This just strikes at the core of our being. The recent HOA situation regarding Heating and A/C rules is a prime example. I don’t go looking for trouble. But when it’s brought to our door, I refuse to ignore it. Lately, the HOA in our planned community is making our life a bit more difficult since it’s all about their rules. I have acquired some rather nasty warning letters from them over our Heating and A/C. That was not a great start. Such hostile language for a Heating and A/C issue is pretty ridiculous to me. The problem appears to be that I am replacing a hedge plus the Heating and A/C is temporarily visible. It won’t be any sort of problem in a few short weeks once the new hedge can grow in a bit. But the HOA wants me to put up a fence until the hedge grows in. I told them in no unwavering terms that this will never happen. I even went as far as to photograph every HOA board members condo. Half of them had the Heating and A/C clearly visible from the road. It feel it is simply egregious that they are threatening me when they aren’t in compliance. If I get another nasty letter, I’m simply turning it over to our partner. She’s a defense lawyer who eats punks love these idiots for a light snack.
