Got My First Complaint

I am still waiting for the big huge protest I was promised last year from the freedom from religion moron in my town.

funny you should mention that, had a neighbor that hated our inflatables and often complained that our Christmas display "wasn't spiritual enough".  Found a ginormous nativity scene featuring the Peanuts gang with Woodstock in the manger.  Had it facing her property so she could see it everyday.  That year we set up Christmas early November so she could take it in.

Dang it George, stop saying stuff that makes me like you.

Sorry - I must be out of practice.

Only complaint I got so far was that the manger scene should not be "winky blinky".  The neighbor has been very animate about it, so I have decided to adjust it so that all the pieces are on one channel, rather than in sequence like mini trees.  I will leave it mostly on, or off, without a lot of interaction with the show.  Since my house lights up her entire living room, and family room....I feel I should be considerate to her only request.

So nice of him to keep his lights and noise inside while your show is running.

I informed the association its going back up on Tuesday and no one said a thing. They did not ask me to take it down, just the one lady was less than happy. She mentioned in her message that she's glad she doesn't live next door too me. As I see it, good thing she doesn't live next too me because I'd turn up the sound and its up on Halloween night anyway. Here the past few nights, the show runs anyway, lights to Halloween music along with animation on a 24x50 matrix. I keep the volume down so as not to blast the neighborhood. But, Halloween day, I'll put out the animatronics, and get ready for the night...at which time the volume goes up! I'll have to extract her email to the association and post it in here.

Once I had a serious complaint.   The police were sent to my house.   The officer was very nice and said he HAD to come and see what was going on.  Without going into details the gist of it was 'ITS HALLOWEEN'!   The officer listened to me and just said "ok   it IS Halloween" and left.  I have no idea what the officer told and complainer.  Nothing happened and I didn't change a thing.     I used to have kids crying.  And the goal was to have someone pee their pants.  This was the best thing which could happen and it did several times.  Usually they announced it which made it even funnier.   I say do your thing without apologizing. 

Yup that is my goal too.  I want to scare people.  About 50% of the kids come to our house.  My wife wants them all... I try to make it more creepy later... but all the parents love it.  They come in and get the candy sometimes for their kids.

Its a lot of fun.

haha, yeah I tell everyone, my house is like Wiley Coyote and Sam the Sheep Dog.  We both clock in at the start of trick or treating, and both check out at the end.  I want my candy... they want my candy.  Its time to roll.
