Yikes, Sue - she sounds horrible.  Glad you're out of that situation.

Oh do I know about nutty neighbors! We had to move in March because of
one. She lived below us and started harassing us like you would not
believe! Anytime she heard us moving around she'd bang on her ceiling.
She'd blast-and I mean blast..our stuff would be shaking-her stereo and
TV from 8am to 1am several times a week! She kept trying to convince me
my boyfriend was sleeping with a bunch of other women in the complex and
that I should dump him. Then one day I dropped my keys and she called
the police! She did it again once when I dropped some groceries I was
putting away. She verbally abused anyone that came to the front door of
the building for us...the mailman, UPS, even the poor paperboy, who quit
because of her. I had to stop ordering garden stuff through the mail
cause I didn't want the poor mail guys to get attacked! She'd come out
in the hall and scream and scream at me, she even lunged at me a few
times. I became so afraid of her I was virtually a prisoner in the
apartment. I wouldn't go out alone. Then she started physically
threatening us. One day when I was in the apartment minding my own
business she started screaming up to me that if she as so much as heard
the floor creak she was going to hurt me. I was so scared I called 911.
Luckily our landlord agreed she was a problem and moved us to another
unit at the other end of the complex. They want to evict her but since
her unit is owned by a different landlord (we live in a co-op-some
people live in the apartments they bought, others rent them out and act
as landlords) they can't. Her landlord wants her out but she is suing
them for some reason so they are in a tough spot. Everyone in the
building she's in has moved out because of her! Sad how some people just
have to make others miserable to be happy. She's a real nut. She thinks
she's wonderful and smart and everyone else is an idiot and "beneath
her." Ugh! So yeah, I can understand what it's like to have a
"difficult" neighbor. To bring things back on topic, she was a lousy
gardener...she had two window boxes and everything she put in them

  Thanks, Sue.  I am quite aware of bamboo's invasive qualities, but
there is
  no danger of damage - just major annoyance.  The bamboo in question is
at the
  bottom of the garden along the property line.  We are on a pretty
steep incline
  with many rocky outcroppings between the house and the bamboo.  The
  is a difficult one, and may have planted the bamboo where she did
because we
  would not let her put a deer fence across the middle of the small pond
  share.  She's  a real nut about a lot of things, but we will cope.
  Thanks for your concern, and everyone else's too.
