You Got A Misdemeanor For Leaving The Garbage Can Out, Fined | Time To Move, Relocate To Maine

The move, relocation to Maine, to find a new home has been in the works for awhile now.

The final straw was the pig sow pigletmisdemeanor criminal charge for a trash can left out all night by mistake. Big yellow Ohio home door sticker tells the world we have a disgrace to society living here. Big time trouble maker. Won't play by the rules. That's the call today from a buyer moving to Maine, to find a home and in an area where regulations up to you eyeballs are not the day to day.

Have similiar stories about being watched like a hawk by the lawn police. Warned this is your last time, with the inspector on his hands and knees. Measure with a ruler, finding you in violation by a quarter of an inch height infraction.

Other home owner association rules about leaving garage doors up, hangin clothes on a line that is so so, well "Beverly Hillbillies".

And pick ups, hey. Cut it out, this is not a blue collar neighborhood and no pickups, no service trucks left where someone could see them. What part of "no pickups" are you having trouble getting a handle on. Get a grip. And suddenly the neighbor feels violently ill, repulsed.

As she recovers to snarkily call the local authorites on you. Time you relocated, moved to Maine for a new home.

It's hard work holding down the status of neighborhood blue blood to train these idiot neighbors that are so unrefined sputters your current out of state neighbor. So basic, plain, ordinary and plain through and through dumb she snears. Afterall, this neighbor paid an extra $475,000 just for the zip code. Could have been one town over with the exact duplicate copy of what they own for a house, lot now but nope. No dice. Wanted this address and zip code for the return label to show high and handsome on upper left hand corner of those yearly Christmas cards.

If you have an $850,000 home, one worth on paper 1.3 milllion or more, riff raft for neighbors, scoundrels, pirates, scourge that hurt your house's value don't make your Christmas card list.

But in rural Maine, impressing anyone with your big maine fish$42,500 home is not happening.

Your well kept cape, ranch, gambrel home in Maine shows pride of ownership.

And the tight ship you run is not for fear of consequences from city hall.

You worked hard for the place. Lawns, gardens are up to snuff.

You have no house debt, don't have a mortgage and were brought up to take care of the inside, outside of the Maine home.

Lots of people jammed in an area mean rules, officers to enforce them, Fines if you don't.

Jail time if you are a habitual offender with your garbage cans, or lack of golf course like level maintenance on your front, side, rear lawns. Maine, feel the difference when you have 44 people per square mile in the Southern half, 11 happy campers in the Northern section. Check out our Maine homes. farms, land, waterfront and business listings. And become wide eyed, kid in the candy store with excitement when you eyeball the prices.

I enjoyed reading the post. There are some people in many communities who are self appointed officials and call to complain about little things.

Hi Andy....had to laugh....we do have severe fines for our irrigation systems running in the summer during water bans.... no directional signs are allowed pointing to a home for sale..... trash receptacles need to be out of sight..... and most areas have a restriction on clothes lines and above ground swimming pools....

Gita ... the more people, the higher the price of luxury listings, the more shark line and regulation riddled life becomes. You don't have neighborhood or town office problems when you live where all those regulations don't exist. And don't need to. Freedom to enjoy your property without someone else defining how.

This Ohio buyer surprised with with the misdemeanor charge status. But it is not kicking Ohio, been to several places there and Akron twice with soap box derby kids who won their local and representing Maine in the big race. Every state has the over the top restrictions. To so call protect the neighborhood from the Beverly Hillbillies. Like the lady who got Jack on the Titanic movie her son's tuxedo for the dinner party but who was shunned by the other elite socialites.

Hi Andy,

Too funny.  But so true!!!  I actually live in the mountains and have no garbage service!!! (or anything else for that matter).  However, people need to live within their boundaries for what they can live with!!  Nice post.

Cindy ... Kids don't like it, adults get tired of everyone pointing at them, telling them do this, don't do that. Maine is simple, less people and your neighbors are four legged, furry, friendlier. Or keep to themselves. Not drama queens.

Funny, Sounds like here in Northern Virginia. Makes me want to move to a lakefront property where I cant see my neighbor.    Hard to imagine a home with equity never mind no mortgage and HOA dues..... Joe

Joseph ... If you own 130 acres, a Maine farm, and there are other 100 acre woodlots here, 400 acre farms there down the road or across it, there are no neighbors to get their knickers in a knot or levels of government to "meter maid" or cause "parking wars" of rules on all the infractions. Keep it simple, move, relocate, invest in Maine.
