I live in an apartment complex and I have seen my neighbours on occasion but I don't know them. However when I lived in my house I had... interesting nieghbours. Two doors down was a couple aproximately the same age as me, and we started talking one day, and the husband came over and sat on my back porch chatting. He saw my BBQ and mentioned that he didn't have one, I told him he was free to use mine whenever he wanted. Flash forward a few weeks I come home and there is the neighbour standing in my kitchen with flippers and a plate of hotdogs. I apparently had left the porch door open and when he realized he had forgotten BBQ sauce he opened the door and borrowed some of mine. Be far the oddest situation involving neighbours, but still we ended up being great friends despite his oddity.

Well, we really don't have neighbors that you can easily tell that they are annoying. They rather irritating. Just some of course.. We have this neighbor who recently built a pool next door and I could hear some singing every now and then.. There's also a neighbor who happens to be a mother of a classmate of mine when I was still going to high school that exudes this kind of arrogance whenever she passes by our house. I mean, honestly, I know our facade for a home doesn't look that nice, gray wall with no paint isn't really 'pretty' but, she doesn't have to base her assumptions on how our house looks like. Then the house infront of ours, who coincidentally is my god mother, happens to have swindle some good amount of money from my mother. I know I shoudl just ignore them all but, seeing them so often and knowing such things makes it a bit difficult. (-_-")

I guess its safe to say the neighbor can't peacefully sing you to sleep. If your a member of any type of sports league however maybe you could walk closer to your singing neighbors house to get more irratated to the point of anger if they are singing long enough. This way you will have the adrenalin flowing to have an advantage of the competition,lol. If you get lucky enough to win the lottery if you do play it buy yourself an awesome car and park on the side of road next to your snobby neighbors house and play music and move your head like your dancing to the beat. After you have won the lottery look out for the swindlling god mother as she will be coming by and let her talk and than tell her to take a hike.

Honestly, that's really a pretty clever way of resolving my predicament with regards to such neighbors(^_^ ) The last sport that I have played would be skate boarding and with that, I have to keep a cool head or having an unstable one would result not only from annoying psychological pain from such neighbors but, in turn physical from the pain of slamming on th pavement. The lottery option is quite a good one too but, with a car, I still need a lisence to drive.. I guess I'd settle for actually fixing things within our house, the facade can come anytime if a whim comes up for it... unless I could buy a very fancy car that could run a couple of miles with just a few cups of water instead of gasoline, that would really be nice (^_^ ) Thanks for your response, kind'a feel a bit better actually.

I live in a townhouse complex, and have some neighbours that I could do without. However, my immediate neighbours on both sides are fantastic! It is a VERY fortunate situation I know. And I hope neither of them move anytime soon, because it's hard to find good neighbours.

When we lived in house before this we did. It was a town house. They were not intolerably annoying, but a few of them did some strange and annoying things. In the home we are in now the neighbors are pretty good. Everyone takes care of their lawns, and we all talk occasionally casually. There is usually never a reason to take issue with anyone. Even when one of us has a party the others are understanding and don't have a problem with the noise or the late hours. Since none of us do that regularly, we have no problem with the occasional party, and we will even let each others party guests park in our driveways if we are not having company ourselves that same night. Have to say we are pretty lucky as far as neighbors go.

Sounds like good neighbors that anyone would be welcomed to have.

My neighbors are quiet. We seldom talk but what's annoying is the non-stop gossiping. They are never out of things to gossip about. That's what irritates me the most. I mean to each his own life, right? But do they have to have their lives by gossiping about other peoples lives? The bad thing about it a lot of people gets affected by their non-stop gossiping. For example, I have a cousin-in-law who live next door. For 4 long years they have never stopped gossiping about how we are so close with each other and that probably we're having an affair when the truth is we're not. My cousin-in-law is my best friend that's why we're always seen together. Because of the gossiping his mother is bad mouthing me because she thinks I'm the bad influence in her sons life and it's so d**n irritating. I just wish they'd stop.

Apparently your not a bad influence to him as your both such best friends. Its best for me to enjoy the good times the best I can no matter what others may think. I would try not to let my emotions be affected by her too much if I was you.
