This delightful lawn ornament somehow caused a neighborhood fight

This woman was so upset about a frog statuette

in her neighbor’s lawn that she reported it to her

homeowner’s association (HOA) — and the rest is history.

A Reddit user, writing under the username

anonymous28538382348, shared details about

her campaign against the lawn ornament.

In the post, anonymous28538382348 explains that

she goes on walks through the neighborhood with

her husband and 6-year-old daughter every day.

“Recently one of our neighbors put up a frog

statuette up for display outside their house,” she

wrote. “I find it really creepy … my daughter hates it”.

“She is absolutely terrified of it.

Now she refuses to go on walks”.

Anonymous28538382348 said she went to the

house to ask the owners to move the statuette

so it was “no longer on display,” but they declined.

She immediately reached out to a neighbor,

who is vice president of the HOA, hoping to

“force them to take the statuette down”.

The neighbor said the statuette is a violation

of HOA bylaws, so the frog’s owners were

forced to take it down and are now being fined.

“My husband says that I took it too far. I see it differently,”

the user concluded. “The statuette is destroying the

aesthetics of the neighborhood and is scaring the children”.

Commenters had strong feelings about the

neighborhood drama.“It’s pathetic you’re wasting

so much time stressing over this,” one user said.

Many expressed concern over the lesson the

Redditor’s was teaching their child. “Way to ensure

you raise an entitled child,” one user summarized

This initial reaction is fully justified, but the benefits that these products provide aren’t exclusive to those with blood circulation problems, those with foot pain or the elderly.
