Controversial lawn decoration ignites battle within neighborhood: 'Why would you do this?'
This woman was so upset about a frog statuette on her neighbor's lawn that she reported it to the Home Owners Association (HOA) - and the rest is history.
A Reddit user, who wrote anonymously under the username28538382348, provided the website's r / AmITheA ******* forum with details of her campaign against the lawn ornament.
Am I the asshole?
AITA Because she went to the HOA to force my neighbor to take off her frog statuette?

In the post, which drew hundreds of comments and went viral on Twitter, anonym28538382348 explains that she walks the neighborhood with her husband and 6-year-old daughter every day.
"Recently one of our neighbors put up a frog statuette for an exhibition in front of their house," she wrote. "I find it really scary ... my daughter hates it. She is absolutely afraid of it. Now she refuses to go for a walk. "
Anonymous28538382348 said she went to the house to ask the owners to move the statuette so that it was "no longer on display," but they declined.
She immediately turned to a neighbor who is vice president of the HOA, hoping to "force her to remove the statuette."
The neighbor said the statuette was in violation of the HOA statute, which forced the frog's owners to remove it and is now fined.
"My husband says I went too far. I see it differently, ”concluded anonymously28538382348. "The statuette destroys the aesthetics of the neighborhood and scares the children."
The commentators had strong feelings for the neighborhood drama.
"It's pathetic that you waste so much time worrying about it," said one user.
Some thought it would overreact.
"When you buy something like a house, you should be able to do what you want with it and decorate it the way you want it," wrote another user. "HOAs are an excuse for people without life to peck their neighbors and cause drama."
Many expressed concern about the lesson the redditor taught her child.
“Literally walk another street if you hate it so much. Or alternatively take the opportunity to talk to your child about how different people find different things beautiful and that this is a cool thing for mankind! Said a user.
"Way to make sure you raise a legitimate child," summed up another.
