Seriously. A human one, to boot. This is the story.

My bedroom is on the first floor of a old 4-unit apartment building, and both (the room and building) are basically Bauhaus rectangles. Behind the apartment is an alley, with no fence - front or back - to keep out the wealthy riff-raff who parade their purebreds through our lawn and graciously leave us free fertilizer. My room has 2 windows; they are joined at the corner of the room. I have a nice view of the alley and part of the poopy lawn.

So one day I was sitting at my desk playing Halo, and my parrot, a yellow-sided conure named Clark - was chillin' on top of his cage, doing parrot-y things; a normal day. The windows are both open but the screens are down for obvious reasons. Then this old woman (60s) comes near the window with her d*amn teacup poodle and get about 1' away and starts talking to the bird.

"Aw, look at the pretty birdie honey! See the birdie? See?" I guess the dog didn't really care because she then hoisted it up to the screen - its nose touching it - and kept on prattling about the pretty birdie. Clark was interested (what the hell is that?) and walked over on his cage, but then the stupid excuse for a pet started barking and it freaked Clark out so he retreated. The weird thing is, the woman couldn't see me because of the angle of where I was sitting. But there was the sound of explosions and typing coming through the window...any reasonable person would probably assume someone was in the room.

She does this every few days, same routine. And never sees me, even as I clearly see her. Hey, I'm all for some parrot-and-dog Milo and Otis friendship, but the poodle just barks and I'm sure just wants to poop and walk away. Should I approach this crazy hag? It's kind of irritating...I'd be nice about it, even introduce her to Clark, but I mean, this is bordering on some sort of bestial voyeurism. Weird.

Suggestons?

Easy

Train your parrot to say, "I'll get you, my pretty. And your little dog, too," with some cackling afterwards. That should keep her away.

Or you could just get some blinds.

No! Dress up like a pirate -you already got the parrot-, and start stalking her back. Aaaargh, it's driving me nuts!

Get yourself one of these costumes and run up to the window squawking at her.
This is excellent! Better yet, run after her outside...

Thanks. My avatar is rockin'.
Great. I've got blisters on my retinas already. Can't you just once pick an avatar that's not totally annoying? :rolleyes:
