the opposite of this is the whining, complaining neighbor in whose mind 2 minutes is 2 hours. They are the scrooges with narcisistic personalities who will cause problems with their neurotic, manipulative ways, who will lie and exaggerate to achieve their own little perfect world. It is not always the dogs. There are people who are just plain miserable and love making others the same way. They will complain about the tiniest noise that "upsets" their equilibrium with an attitude of self entitlement. they are overbearing, intrusive and ridiculous. Some people really do need to take better care of their dogs so that they don't bark and that is the owner's fault, not the dog's. But there are some dog owners who take excellent care of their dogs and who have neighbors who are just plain horrible people.
