My So-Called Neighbors

For the past twenty some years the people who live next door to me have been regular neighbor types. You know, a mom, a dad, kids, and a pet or two. Last October when my most recent regular neighbors returned to Sweden, they said a young couple with a child was supposed to move in, but they didn't. No one did. 
 
Recently, some kid who looks too young to own a house has been driving a white panel truck into the driveway at 10 PM and leaving in the morning at around 7:30 AM. 
 
This morning the white panel truck's engine was turned on but nobody left. Now the engine has been running for over twenty minutes and I'm smelling exhaust fumes in my house. I looked outside and saw a bunch of hoses leading from the truck into the back of the house. The side door of the truck is open and there's some kind of generator or pump on. The engine is now revved up pretty high and the air is beginning to get pretty bad in here.
 
I wouldn't have this problem if they'd backed the truck into the driveway so the exhaust pipe was aimed toward their house and not mine. 
 
The truck is still running and now I'm getting a headache. 
 
My question is, should I sit here until I die? 
 
I'll let you know my decision later.

A: The guy is cleaning his carpets

or...

B: He's refilling the hydroponic tanks in his marijuana farm. It's always best not to run up a big water bill lest the Cops be tipped off.

Well, I would complain. Although, what REmo says might be true...you never know what's going on today. Can you get a phone number on the address? Safer to call. Good luck...Sandi

I think your neighbors need a wellness check.
