Whatever happened to loving thy neighbor?
An unidentified Iowan woman Crazy rhubarb lady, as the Internet hath dubbed her has rocketed to online infamy this week when video appeared online of her shouting a long string of profanities at a homeowner who caught her removing rhubarbs from a patch that had found its way outside the limits of a fence.
Apparently Crazy Rhubarb Lady has made a habit of plucking rhubarb from a neighbors patch, and has been confronted multiple times, but only when the cameras are rolling does the public get a glimpse into the hilarity of a woman cursing out two other adults over a leafy plant.
This is alley property, b*tch! the woman yells at a woman off-camera. This dont have your name on it. Wheres your name, b*tch? Wheres your name?
She continued to lash out at the other woman: You stick your nose in everyones business.
If its anybodys property, why dont you come up and mow it? the off-camera woman asks. The answer: Because of the Iranian pigs who live in the area and stole her lawnmower.
The verbal battle continued for at least five minutes, with Rhubarb Lady calling her accuser a lezzie for addressing her as sweetheart.
We hope the rhubarb was really worth it.

The woman is nuts, and yet if the rhubarb is growing out side the fence, it does not belong to anyone.
I agree that the rhubarb is probably up for grabs, but just because the lady was so odious, I would have turned the garden hose on her.
If I was that husband I would have turned my hand mower on and started in on that alley garden...
Now that’s what I call a rhubarb.
Actually, a fence doesn’t necessarily mark the property line. I have over a 1/4 of an acre that sits outside my fence line.
That woman is as crazy as a loon but is right. The owners should have kept the plant inside the fence.
This has the fingerprints of a neighborhood feud that’s been going on a LONG time.
Grumpy Old Women!
A predict this video will have more than 1 million views by next week.
...or just spray the whole rhubarb plant with deer musk and let that crazy lady enjoy it the next time she roots around in the rhubarb.
We’ve had people treat us that way when we confront them for tress passing to take asparagus that grows 100 feet from the road or apples from our trees. I gave up personally calling them on it. Just never know what kind of wack job you are going to run into.
I just get the license plate now and have them ticketed for tress passing. We have never refused requests if they come to the house and ask. I hate people that think things are there
For their free pickings. I consider it theft. I guess it’s all part on the entitlement mentality now days.
If the fence is actually the property line for the people growing it.
Grumpy Old Women!
I can’t imagine that she’s married. If so, the man must be deaf.
Here your property line starts 33 feet from the center of a right of way. The fence was most likely required by zoning to be off the property line by 5 or 10 feet.
Round-up Ultra makes good neighbors. ;)
Yep! I was convinced this was filmed in South Park ;-)
Not gonna win the Good Neighbor award with an attitude like this!
In many places the alley is located on an easement that is there for the homeowners’ convenience. In that case the actual property lines could be down the middle of the alley, off to one side or the other, or the alley might go right through the middle of someone's property. It depends on how the area was subdivided. The easment might only be for people who live there and not open to the public at all. That is how it is in the gated community where we live. It really isn't possible to make an accurate assumption based on how it works somewhere else.
Fences are often well within property lines. I am amazed by the number of people on the forum with the video that think they are entitled to steal another person's plants, flowers or presumably benches, tables or anything else just because they are on the outside of a fence. If true... why would this not apply to cars, bicycles, horses, dogs or anything else on the outside of a fence?
It's a real conversation starter.
I dunno, she’s either a DU poster or the mom of that foul mouthed Barbara Morgan who works on the Weiner Campaign
Or the white version of Obama phone lady...
it’s hard to believe this is real..the voice is unreal..it’s like a Female Cartman
I did not view the video, but, based on the above, this woman is no lady.
Geez, I hope it is not my sister. Lives in IA, 0bama voter, and has been talking a lot lately about cooking with rhubarb.
it belongs on that show with the trailer guys...can’t remember the name of it..with Bubbles.
Question: Who was terrorizing whom?
THAT'S problem solved.
I always say that if something happened to the Spousal Unit, I’d not re-marry. But finding a woman who can forage is pretty darned tempting!!
Oh she could easily live in the trailer park (”Trailer Park Boys”). Same bolt of cloth, eh?
The fact that the plants are outside the fence is irrelevant. I’ve had fences on my property which do not go up to the limits of my property line. Sometimes I just wanted to contain dogs or kids in a small area.
The Rhubarb Lady philosophy is: “WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE??!!!!”
Just about this time, I would fire up the power mower and head out that back gate. That woman is nuts. God love her heart.
What an absolutely horrible beastly “woman”! I can’t believe someone would act like that. That is absolutely amazing. If you haven’t seen the movie Arthur with Dudley Moore this won’t make sense, but reminds me of “Perry’s wife”. Perry’s wife was a lot screechier, though. :)
ROTFLOL! You brought tears to my eyes!!!
You’re right...she’s a horrible woman. Do you think she’s married? If she has a husband; poor man. He’ll go straight to heaven because he served time in hell here on earth. LOL
LOL...Poor, poor man if he exists. I think hell would be a respite for him.
Did you see llevrok’s post? I cried from laughing.
I’ll look for llvrok’s post right now. Thanks for telling me.
Life is a lark in Sunnyvale Trailer Park.
Sorry, no idea which show you are talking about, as I never watch that kind of stuff.
$2 says it was somewhere around Cedar Rapids...
I own all of my alley but the city will plow it in the winter. I believe that makes it an easement and anyone can travel on it. Don’t know however if a person can remove plants though.
I actually did that to a previous neighbor. Think they were Pakis but there was an old woman living there that stunk to high hell. Anyway, teenage daughter and her friend were washing my car and threw the hose down on the lawn. Water was draining into neighbors dead, unwatered lawn and the old woman came across to our driveway screaming in some language at the girls. They came running into the house telling me. When I headed out through the garage she was standing in the driveway waving her arms screaming. I told her to gtf away from my house and leave the girls alone. She just kept standing there screaming and waving her arms so I calmly picked the hose up and sprayed the stinky witch down. You should have seen her run! lol There were other neighbors in their yards laughing to beat all get out. I laugh everytime I think about it, even now.
