Leaving behind the hustle and bustle of the city for a calmer life in the Midwest seemed like a dream for one young girl and her family, until the cultural clashes with the local farming community sparked a peculiar neighborhood feud. A tale of stubbornness, discord, and a pig barn – this is the story of how their search for tranquility morphed into a smelly nightmare. Read on to learn how their suburban dream went awry, leading them to seek advice from the Reddit community.
Tensions With the Locals
After moving from the big city to the Midwest for a more affordable lifestyle, tensions began to rise between her and the locals, mostly farmers.
It all started with the constant early morning noise from farm machinery and their disapproval of her late-night rap music sessions with a friend.
She Gave a Cow the Stink Eye
As if that wasn’t enough, one day, a cow from the neighbor’s farm wandered into their yard, and when the girl gave them a disapproving look, they saw it as the last straw.
He Wanted an Apology
The neighbor confronted her father, delivering a stern lecture about their behavior and demanding an apology.
Why Should She When They Were Trespassing?
When her father asked for an apology, she stood her ground, refusing to do so.
She believed that it was the neighbors who were in the wrong and should respect the boundaries of other people’s property.
Revenge on the Horizon
Little did she know, her defiance would have serious consequences.
Construction Up Close to Their Property
Upon returning from a spring break trip, her family was shocked to discover construction underway just feet away from their home.
A Giant Shed
A large shed was being built right up against their property line.
This Little Piggy
Alarmed, they reached out to their neighbors for an explanation and were informed that it was a pig barn.
Rumors suggested that it was a deliberate tactic to force them out of the neighborhood.
There Was Nothing They Could Do
Frantic and concerned about the potential odor and noise, her father contacted the city, hoping to find a solution.
They’d Soon Have Hundreds of Curly-Tailed Neighbors
Unfortunately, the area was zoned for agriculture, and the neighbor was legally allowed to have up to 200 pigs on his property.
Now, the girl’s father is furious, blaming her for the disaster.
Their Home Would Be Worth Nothing
After researching online, she realized the severity of the situation.
The value of their property has plummeted, and they are facing the prospect of living in misery.
Every Day Is Worse Than the Last
As days pass, the situation worsens.
The pigs have arrived, numbering somewhere between 75 to 100, and the stench permeates the air.
The Stench Was Eye-Wateringly Bad
The girl describes it as a mixture of rotten food, sour milk, sewage, and manure.
The barn, strategically positioned to send the odor their way, seems to intensify the problem.
Her Parents Keep Their Devastation on the Down-Low
Her parents try to hide their distress from her, but she can sense their discomfort.
The smell has infiltrated her bedroom, and she fears that her belongings and clothes are now absorbing the foul odor.
She Doesn’t Know What to Do
While her parents remain supportive, she questions how much longer they can endure this unbearable situation.
The stench worsens daily, reaching a point where even opening the windows leads to a wave of vile pig stench infiltrating their home.
A Very Cruel Fate
Now, faced with dealing with the overwhelming pig stench that has invaded their lives, she’s turned to Reddit for advice.
Redditors have decided that while the girl didn’t act very mature, she’s young and the farmers went a step too far, “Yep, OP didn’t do great in this situation but it also sounds like the neighbors went out of their way to try to push out their new big city neighbors. Seems especially cruel considering the teenager probably will move out eventually.”
