Luckily they moved but when I first moved into my rental house (before Darling Husband moved in) my neighbors had loud drunken parties on their patio, which was about 10 feet from my bedroom window, and with NO insulation in the house, I could hear their every word… in their loud profane glory. Seriously, these people swore like sailors all night sometimes and then decided once a fire was a GRAND plan. On their covered patio. On the ground. In a burn ban. It was wonferful when they moved!

My upstairs neighbors at my old apartment were awful! They would have screaming/stomping/door slamming fights all the time. We never heard the guy, but the girl….she would go absolutely nuts! Once, she even locked him out of the apartment and they screamed at each other through the door. We didn’t have a tv, so our apartment was always extra quiet, but it was ridiculous. I said if the police ever came to the door and asked us if we were aware there was a murder in the apartment above us the night before, I wouldn’t have been surprised. Luckily the woman moved out before my daughter was born. If she had woken up my newborn, there would have been hell to pay.

My parents current neighbor didn’t like the fencing my dad put up ( so we wouldn’t see them!) so she started salting our yard. Literally tossing handfuls of salt over the fence. Did I mention that if salt is put onto soil it makes it IMPOSSIBLE to grow anything there for years?! Not only that but she sent us a note admitting to it. We are not on speaking terms.

@MsNarwhal:  that salt things pretty horrible… though that has to be one of the most intresting bad neighbor things I’ve heard of. At least she gets points for originality?

 

My neighbors across the street are just the generally loud obnoxious occasionally violent scary people that you never want to make eye contact with for fear of getting something thrown at you. But I’ll never forget the first time I noticed there would be a problem…

It was about 11:30 at night on the 4th of July. There were, and pretty understandably I would say, some fire works going off in the street. We’re not talking huge displays, or rowdy parties, just kids and some bottle rockets. Fiance and I were just relaxing in front of the TV, when we heard screaming outside. We turn the TV down, and hear a woman absolutely SCREAMING at whoever it was with the firecrackers. “MY CHILDREN ARE TRYING TO SLEEP! DONT YOU HAVE ANY RESPECT? IM GOING TO CALL THE COPS! THIS IS ILLEGAL! YOU CANT DO THIS HERE!” And cussing, cussing, cussing. And 15 minutes later, still cussing. And 30 minutes later, still screaming. Never once did I even hear the “guilty party”. You know what I do have to hear though? Three years straight of HER screaming at everyone, right outside my window. Talk about respect! 

btw, the cops do spend an awful lot of time across the street, but usually its because someone called them on her.

That would be sad to watch kids try to stop the fighting.

Sad in another way is when the kids take part in the fighting, by joining their (grandmother?) in helping her to cuss out the neighbors.

Another thing I’ve seen, as I, too, tend to peek out of the blinds.
