It’s (Still) a Free Country

Dear Short Answers:
The house next door is for sale and my wife and I are very concerned that we get the right family — quiet with no little kids. The last family had two little terrors who started playing outside (weather permitting) at the crack of dawn every Saturday and Sunday. My wife wants me to talk to the real estate agent and let us speak to any prospective buyers to lay out the ground rules. I’m not comfortable doing this but I also want a nice, quiet family to live next door. What do you think is the best way to handle this?

Dear Choosy:
We think the only way to choose your neighbors is to buy the house yourself. You have absolutely no grounds to talk to the broker or prospects! You are WAY out of line should you decide to do so.
