Not only were they standing behind me when I was called in for a meeting, but they all planted flowers in front of their air conditioning unit
I hated the homeowner’s association. Even since we moved into our house, they had been a thorn in my side. They were always telling us what we could and couldn’t do. I was paying for the house, and I didn’t think they had the right to tell me what to do with the house, but they begged to differ. They told us we signed a contract, and if we didn’t like it, we could move. I started gathering people together and talking them into signing a paper that would support our right to plant what we wanted, change the house color to whatever we wanted, and beautify where we thought it was necessary. My husband told me I was asking for trouble, but I didn’t care. This all started because I planted flowers around the air conditioning unit. I thought it looked prettier with some flowers in that area. There was room for the HVAC technician to get to the AC unit. None of the air vents on the AC unit were covered, and I didn’t think it was any of their business. I was fined for putting flowers in an area where they didn’t think it was appropriate. I was so proud of my neighbors the next weekend. Not only were they standing behind me when I was called in for a meeting, but they all planted flowers in front of their air conditioning unit. I didn’t believe so many people felt like I did about the homeowner’s association. WE were all working together to take away some of their rights.
