An Australian woman is taking her neighbors to court for barbequing in their back yard.
Cilla Carden is a massage therapist vegan who does not partake in eating meat. She loathes the thought of anything other than vegetables-based food and is angry that she has to smell of hamburgers, fish, ribs, hot dogs, and chicken being grilled next door.
How do you know if someone is vegan? Don’t worry, they will tell you. And apparently, now they will sue you for using your back yard.

A vegan woman has filed a suit against her neighbors in the Australian supreme court after complaining about the smell of meat and fish emanating from their barbecues.
Cilla Carden took her case to the Supreme Court of Western Australia, citing her neighbors’ barbecuing, smoking and children playing basketball, among other complaints, reported Australia’s Nine.
Carden accused her neighbors of intentionally setting up these nuisances.
“It’s deliberate,” she told Nine. “All I can smell is fish. I can’t enjoy my backyard.”
I think I can appreciate why the odor of barbecuing offends her; it’s just that it’s too bad for her. Grilling in the backyard is an age-old custom for humans. Just about every culture has a tradition of backyard cooking. If they had been roasting corn, I wonder if she would have been so upset.
I’m sure there are other homes situated in such a way where natural airflow would prevent the odor from getting to her house, but that’s on her, not her neighbors.
But where did this woman get the idea she had a case against her neighbors?
If she wants peace, she wouldn’t continually be filing lawsuits. What she wants is the attention she gets. Pretty expensive habit, if she’s paying lawyers. And pretty desperate lawyers who would take nuisance clients.
Carden says that the neighbor’s act of barbecuing is intentional. I’ve never heard of accidental barbecuing, so, yes, it is intentional. And that self-important, ‘I’m the only person on the planet that matters,’ argument comes up again.
Was she an only child, and how homeschooled was she? If all you want is peace, if you’re going to live a certain way and only eat certain things, it doesn’t give you the right to give others grief for doing what THEY like. Move to an area where neighbors are few and far between.
