A Good Advocate Makes A Bad Neighbor

My friend called up last night and told me that he is in trouble again. The guy lives in an apartment complex and his neighbor is a High Court Advocate. He has always been in trouble with his neighbor and told me that he has decided to leave his house. He is moving to a another apartment in the same complex. This time, his neighbor filled a police complaint against him saying my friend left his own house unlocked. And that, he feared if any theft happens, my friend will think that the neighbor did it. Was'nt that funny. My friend had just gone down to buy some stuff from the local grocers and purposly did not lock the main door to the house as the lock was playing-up on him. He thought, he would fix up the lock once he comes back home......... within 30 minsutes or so. Almost 1 month back, this advocate had filled another complained against my friend saying....... my friend had cut the tree that this Advocate had planted. When in-effect, my friend had just chopped some of the lower branches of the tree coz the lil kids used to play badminton near the tree and their "Shuttle" used to get stuck on those lower branches. Lol....... A Good Advocate Makes a Bad neighbor....... for sure.

This neighbour of your friend is being childish & difficult. Hopefully the court process will see it as such. In fact, I would go as far as saying that perhaps your neighbour could file a harrassment report.

Sounds like one of these mean, petty neighbors who needs to get a life of his own and let others live theirs.

I'm sorry for your friend. Seems like he has a very difficult neighbor. This neighbor is looking for any excuse to file a complaint against your friend. If I were your friend I would do the same: go away and move to another apartment. I wouldn't want to stay there and lose my health because these situation will go on and on again. So I think your neighbor took the right decision. He will have peace in his new apartment. It's very important.

Well this advocate really seems bored with his life, there is one thing for sure, he really knows how to make other's life miserable. But i do think that he is right in what he complained about, But there is always a better way of doing things. We didn't he just go to your friend and tell him or her that this bothers him, and told him why he is worried about it. Why did he go and make a complaint. he does not seem like a person that i would have liked living with. And i do think that your friend did the right decision by moving to another flat. It is a pity that he had to do so, but i do not think that he could have educated or changed the advocate personality.

To me it sounds like the high court advocate is too full of himself, and his big head is getting in the way. And because of his position he is almost untouchable, I do have to wonder why he made it his business to see who's door is locked and who's isn't. sound just plain nosy to me. I would call it trespassing if he came and opened my door and found out I was not at home. There sounds like an abuse of authority and maybe some one should report him.

I don't know where you live but here in Canada, you friend can file a complaint about being harassed by this person and that should stop his constant complaining.

haha.. i agree with you... a good advocate makes a bad neighbor.. they're too into the law.. and they are not aware that they are oppressing others with it.. i don't understand how can the neighboor keep on filling a complain against your friend.. wht is he thinking.. he might think he know too much of the law.. and now he's making use of it to teach others a lesson? oh my gosh.. i didn't know that such people still exist..anyway.. i think you better ask your friend to move out from there as soon as possible.. if not that 'good' advocate might irritate him again..

Well, it goes to say that you cannot please him anyway or another. Just do good for your neighbor in need.

well yeah, he seems so strict as well and very paranoid on some things in life, which is not good i guess, does your friend ask permission on cutting some branches? maybe its lack of communication between him and the neighbor..

Sounds to me as if the guy was a royal pain in the you know what. Someone who always has to have his nose in someone else's business. I don't care for the type myself and am very apt to ake them to task for meddling in things that don't concern them, I would turn around and take out a harrassment complaint against the guy.
