Who Is the Nutbag in Your Neighborhood?

Judge To Decide If Teen's Meows Harassed Neighbor

A Jeannette woman. Alexandria Carasia (78), filed suit against a 14-year-old boy who she claims 'meows' whenever he sees her.

A district judge in Jeannette must decide whether the alleged 'meowing' is a harmless taunt or grounds for misdemeanor harassment.

The boy, whose family chose to get rid of their cat after Carasia complained that it used her flower garden as a litter box, says he's only meowed twice at the woman.

But Carasia says the boy makes sound every time she sees her and that an incident last month was the last straw.

District Judge Joseph DeMarchis heard from both parties yesterday. He is waiting 90 days before ruling, saying he'll decide what to do after seeing how the boy and his neighbor get along in the meantime.

Am I alone in I the only person who is thinking, "You actually think someone MEOWING at you is freaking harassment?!?!?"

Everybody and their Uncle Sherman thinks they are being "harassed" these days. But actually FILING SUIT against a 14-year-old boy for MEOWING?

Great balls of fire, I hope this lady can at least blame this bit of stupidity on senility.
