We have some very bad next door neighbors. They are extremely loud, fight a lot, and have had the cops come on them quite a few times. They blare their music so loud that it makes the walls shake, they had a big dog in their tiny apartment for sometime, and one night I came out and saw a huge pile of dog poo on our front door rug. But the thing that made me see red tonight was this: they have no regard for anything or anyone, so they peel out and drive fast, we have many outside cats, even outside tiny kittens, and i looked out the window, and if this tiny kitten had been a split second slower, it would have been run over flat because it panicked and ran across the driveway when it heard the tires squeal. THANK GOD IT DIDN'T, i am calling the landlord tommorow, i have one of my cats that gets out from time to time, and I do not want some psycho person who can't control themeselves to not speed at 4 am in the morning to run him over if i can get him inside before then. Does anyone else have psycho, or annoying neighbors?

We used to have bad neibours but thankfully they moved out eight years ago.We have lovely neibours now thank goodness,so I do sympathis with you.How can anyone live like you have to,it made me ill when the horrible lot were there.Police around all the time and loud music,what makes these people think they can ruin your quality of life,so selfish.You see your landlord and start writing down times and event which have upset you.Get the other people in your block to sign a petition ,get together and get these low lifes flung out.

Our next door neighbors are wonderful. They are an older couple in their 70's. They have become like another set of grandparents for our kids. We invite them for the birthday parties and picnics. They love to see the kids and talk to them. We have a neighbor across the street that is a jerk. he is really obsessive about his yard and the whole town. He actually went so far as to call the EPA in to try to get a neighbors outdoor furnace shut down. We avoid him as much as we can.

I do have some nice neighbors too. I live in a big apartment complex with about 50 units or so. I guess you have to take the bitter with the sweet. No one is perfect and we should all try and get along. Unfourntly sometimes things do not work out. Take care and happy mylotting.

well, I have no problem with my neighborhoods, they are all nice, except sometimes kids just fool around, or they disregard the front yard is someone else's property. Trashes or basketball all spree around. A little warning might make them scare away. I am ok with my neighborhoods.

Having lived in the same apartment complex for over 23 years, I have seen more than my fair share of pretty much every kind of neighbor you can imagine. I am fortuneate enough to have an aprtment at the far end of the small complex, with a small side yard and only one side of my apartment connected to the building. For the most part, I have been pretty lucky, most who have lived right next door have been ok. But I have seen some real winners in and out of the other apartments. everything from just plain noisy people, to genuine trouble makers and crooks. I think my chief pet peve would have to be the kids that have come and gone, out of controll little punks who's parents seem to lack the common sense god gave even a lemming. Mouthy, destructive, outside all hours of the night, contstantly getting in to trouble, etc. Even with quiet neighbors, when you live in a small town complez like I do, the drama is a constant thread running through out. Somethimes you can't even sit on the porch in the morning and enjoy your coffee with out someone stopping by to complain about a junior high level dispute with another neighbor, how this one said this about so and so, or how so and so is doing this to so and so or how so and so's kids are such and such. For the most part, I stay out of that stuff and usualy just sit and listen with 9out returning much of my own thoughts on it, I have enough drama of my own, I don't share it and i don't really want anyone elses on my doorstep. So for the most part, I spend time in my little side yard, by my little fire, everyone is welcome there at that fire, but the standing rule is the drama and conflict is left out there in the rest of the complex, my fire is a place of quiet and communion, no one is unwelcome there, but leave the drama out there.

I know exactly what you mean about kids, every single day, there are kids swarming about, some are young and are sweet and we like them, even if they are misguided because they just have no supervision or good parenting. But its the 12-15 year olds that are terrors, the pool was shut down for a week because some kid punks thought it would be fun to go at night and throw all the chairs and tables into the pool . And they ride around on their bikes at 11 at night, and its hard because the way the apartments are set up with so many trees, its hard to figure out which one they live in, if you ask them, they never tell the truth or they just take off.

Yeah I have some annoying neighbours as well. I believe we are suppose to treat our neighbours with respect but let me tell you a story that happened to me a few weeks ago. I have a nieghbour and I will say her name is Lou. She and her husband are known out where we live at as a little crazey. They fight, yell, scream and rarley take care of their daughter. I came in contact with them a few months ago and I thought I would give them a chance. Lou the wife was really nice to my girls and took them places and everything. At first I thought she really might be that nice but than I started to have my radar go up. So one day I was at her home and she told me someone else out here where I live at called my girls slow and that she should not let them in her house. This was very upsetting so I was thinking man that is rude that she would even tell me that. So as time went on my mother also lives in the same complex as me and we were all sitting on another neighbours porch when the women that supposely said this apporached us. My mother got very upset and said she did not want to be around this women that said these things about my kids. When my mom went home one of the women said why is your mom upset so I told her what Lou had said she had said. Her and her sister confornting Lou and she called the police saying I wanted to punch her. I never went anywhere near this women and I still have to live in the same place as her. Anyway I know all about crazey neighbours and I cannot wait until they move. Take care and happy mylotting to you.

That is so horrible :( this is not very nice but we call the crazy annoying woman neighbor psycho b!tch, because that is exactly what she is, and sounds like that is what your horrible neighbor is, just a person that is crazy,rude,disrespectful, and just should be forced to learn some manners and decency.

All my neighbours are crazy. I live in a lane so I have next door neighbours, neighbours across from me and neighbours at the back. The neighbours next door like to fight, scream and shout at 1-4am. Yet you never see them outside or hear them during the day. The neighbour across from us spies on the houses in front of her (my house is one of them), and then she likes to come and discuss what you were doing when she was spying on you. For instance I went to put the garbage out at 3am and I done it quietly, the next day she told me she saw me and asked why I decided to put the garbage out at that time. She also once came over to ask why me and my friend were up so late onenight and that she saw us dancing in my living room. You can see her sit at her window watching you it's so creepy. She also likes to discuss what our next door neighbours do, and what she has seen them do. She also has no boundries and once came barging through our backgate, through the garden and into our kitchen when we had guests over. The neighbours at the back keep to themselves, thank god.

One of my downstairs neighbors is a spying type too, one time we were watching a movie and there was some fighting in the movie, we had the sliding glass door open, and she came upstairs and banged on the door and said that she was going to call the police if we kept fighting and having a "domestic dispute", we told her that it was just the movie, but she wouldn't believe us, so we had to close the door and turn on the ac instead :(

i do have annoying neighbors. actually most of my neighbors are annoying. and we are kinda the weird neighbors for all my neighbors. we don't talk with our neighbors cause they don't like us. anyways, there are times i will just hear something like a glass or bottle breaking in the frontyard. i thought someone threw something to the car window. but thankfully it was not. but still some one threw a bottle in our front yard against the wall. so i came out of the gate i saw these broken glasses in front of my gate. and there were times they will just let their dogs poo just in front of the door of the gate. and they are nosy neighbors. they will gossip on why we had to buy an aircon, sometimes washing machine. all things we do is like big topics on some of our neighbors. i hate the community i am in. but thankfully some of those annoying neighbors have relocated but still they were replaced by less annoying neighbors but still annoying and still gossipers. but not much as the ones before. so in a way i had found some relief. neighbors can or have the ability to change our normal lives into such a hell.

I know what you mean about the dog poo, we live in apartments, a four plex apartment building, and dogs are not allowed, but for awhile they snuck in a very large dog. We knew about it, but we didn't say anything because we felt like it just wasn't any of our business, this was about 6 months ago, then one night i step out the front door and like one foot from the door, there was a huge pile of dog crap on our porch, I was so pissed and knew it was from their dog that I did call the manager and told, thats just so disrespectful, gross, and wrong to let a pet poop in front of someones home... i had forgotten all about it though by now, but your story made me remember

Hi. spicysweetie21. This is so bad! How can neighbors not have any respect for each other? Now this is what you call, disrespectful! I have a neighbor that lives downstairs. He is very mean. He loves hitting on his ceiling when he hears noise that he does not like to hear. Then he has the nerve to come and knock on my door after this too. I have nothing to say to him, ever!

Our neighbors are students cause it's a dormitory. The other lot beside our house is a parking area. So we don't have problems with our neighbors. Though there are rumors that the house in front of us was an old haunted house. Having those kind of neighbors really would bug me too. If i was in your case, i might look for someplace to transfer to as it really is annoying. Imagine, they even attract cops to enter their private home because of their fights. They also almost killed your pet. I hope you have already solved this case and may you have a peaceful and quiet stay at home.

Well, at least now I know it's not just me, lol. We have had a string of 'interesting' people renting the house next to us. For some reason, they have ALL had Pit Bulls. The one poor thing was always out in the winter, no water , no food. I felt bad for him even though he'd bitten me earlier in the year, thankfully his owner got him off my hand when she did. (His chain reached half way across the road between our houses.) The ones now are just really messy, and their grass gets feet high. They also park blocking my driveway alot, and the police are not strangers to that house at all hours of the night.

I have had all kinds of neighbours since I moved into this building seven years ago. The lady who lives above me plays her music a little bit too loud, and there are times when my husband and I have had to go up there and ask her to please turn it down, because we are getting blown away down here.

it is good that we don't have such kind of neighbors. we talk with our neighbors from time to time. we share them mango fruits when it is in season. several times in the past, i called on a neighbor's telephone just to ask if everything was okay in our house when nobody was left at home.

oh god what a bad luck i have got very good neighbour , they take care of my 2y old son

I am so lucky in having really lovely neighbours but my parents have so many problems with theirs - lots of bad language, aggressive behaviour and vandalism! It makes such a huge difference to your quality of life when you're constantly looking out of your window and worrying about what's about to happen next! I feel so sorry for anyone in this position. I hope your landlord can sort this situation out for you for your own sanity!

yes! i have annoying neighbours! they play their music out loud and they sing videoke all night along especially if they have a birthday celebrant. The more you ask them to pipe down, the more they will put up the volume. And whenever they have fights amongst themselves, they really shout out loud as if the whole town can hear their squambles. That is our neighbour at the back. At our front, is a lot more depressing. We have a neighbour who bought the small vacant lot beside them and put it up for rentals. The place is habitual is habitable for maximum of 3 families only. When i asked them, whaaaaaaaat??!!! They are 32 people living in that small lot that is about quarter the size of a small moviehouse! Next thing ive heard, their electricity was cut because their landlord has not been paying the power bills. You can see them all roaming in front of our house and sleeping out in the open. Whats worse is that they dont have a restroom in that lot! they pee in our garden pavements.. they lie on our bushes! Eewwrrr... Our street used to be so peaceful and so private..and now... id rather not say it...

It is really difficult to adjust with bad neighbours.Their activities just irritates others.Their household quarrels just creates so much noise that it disturbs all other people nearby. I have the problem with my neighbour's child.The child visits my house daily and breaks my household articles.Also the child causes lots of damage to my flower garden.The child's parents just watches all these things and laughs at their child's activity.It irritates me a lot. These are psycho people who doesn't have any feelings for others.Now I always keep my gates locked and try to avoid the bad neighbours.That's the only way left for me.

Actually my neighbors are quite pleasant even the ones I can't stand. When I'm out walking my dogs my neighbors stop and compliment me or wave at me. I had the boy who delivers my paper on Thursday say hello to me. That really surprised me I never thought people noticed me up here so far away from home.
