I have a very nosey neighbor.Everytime I go out in my yard ,he's standing on his porch staring at me.He watches me do things out in the yard.I find this annoying,the guy don't work,so he's always out there.He needs to get a life.He even called the cops on me for arguing with someone.I guess he thinks he's a good citizen doing that.How about you,do you have a nosey,busy body of a neighbor?

Oh man yes, I had this nosey neighbor when I was staying at my parents house. The kind of guy that's going to go around, and meet all the neighbors. He always knows what's going on, which is odd right away, because no one in our neighborhood talks to each other. I couldn't tell you who any of the neighbors are. People go to work, and they come home. No one ever sees anyone else. But this guy knows everyone, and their business. Everytime I go outside, for some reason he's going outside to do something too. And then he comes home from work, and he'll pull his car past his driveway, and do a wide turn move, so that his headlights are pointed right at me, and just sit there a second before pulling into the driveway. The guy is creepy.

That's the exact same thing here.Everyone else in this neighborhood pretty much keeps to themselves,but this guy.He always has to see everything going on around here.It's like "Get a life, you loser".Thats what I'd love to tell him.

I did notice he always talks to children girls.I find that strange so he could be a child pervert.When he drives he pulls over to talk to the children.I see them stop by his house to talk to him.I told my daughter not to talk to him and to stay away from him.

Hi Java: I have a neighbor that loves to listen to his favorite music (which I hate) very loud. It's very annoying and I think the right thing to do is to call the police in these cases but I have always let it be because i don't want to argue with them. The result is that I try to ignore as much as I can this behaviour. Sometimes it's not that easy. Thanks for asking us this question. ALVARO.

You're right.If someone was noisey then I would call the cops to avoid confrontation.But in other cases I like to ignore the people around here.

He called the cops on me,for a disagreement I had with anothe rneighbor.He made it alot worse than wehat it was.It had nothing to do with him at all.We resolved it anyways,I didn't need that idiot butting in.He's the only one in this neighborhood that acts like that.Everyone else keeps to themselves.

Fortunately I have no nosey neighbor. We are all minding our own life. But what I have are noisy neighbors which I hate especially when I need to concentrate on something.

Hi juggerogre: I understand what you mean. It's not easy to concentrate when there's someone making noise. This usually happened to me when I had to study for a test and it was my brother who didn't let me to concentrate on my subjects. I was very angy at these moments. Well, thanks for your answer. Have a nice day. ALVARO.

That's lucky for you.Noisey neighbors are so disturbing.I have some drinkers next door to me,but they do make noise once in awhile.I'm glad it's not all the time,I don't want to be a cop caller.I pretty much just ignore them since they're not always noisey.

yes.. he's very annoying, every morning he shouts at his daughter i pity his daughter cause she doesn't get to enjoy her childhood because of her father.. i planned reporting it to the authorities but i came on deciding not to,because that is their own family so its their responsibility to fix it.. but when it comes to physical abuse of course i will interfere.. :)

You know something,there's another neighbor that lives behind me.There's this alley in back of my house,he goes in the alley with this poor two year old boy.Yelling at him for everything he does.He shouts at the little boy,I feel so sorry for the boy,he's at such a young age where he's just learning about the world.I wish that man wouldn't do that.I feel it's abusive.I was tempted to repoet it myself,but like you decided to stay out of it.

LMAO! It's actually tragic how people who do nothing make it a point to make your business their business. I live in a place where my house is boxed in between 2 of these nosy no-lifers. I usually don't pay any attention to whatever they say anyway and everyone almost thinks these people are crazy. I do too.

I think he's nuts,He has a van parked on the side of the road.I noticed when he's bnored,he'll remove all the doors off the van,then he takes a break and puts the doors back on it.He's done that a couple of times.I find it very weird.

One of my neighbors is kind of nosy. She checks on me fairly regularly, but all in all it's kind of sweet and I don't mind it as much as I would if she were just nosy and cranky with no sweet side.

I wouldn't mind ,but this guy does it to be a jerk.He's gotta find something better to do.Some people do it out of concern and others just to annoy someone.

Luckly for us our houses are spread apart so we dont even hear any noise when are neighbors do anything which is a good thing. the only time when we do hear noise from our neighbors if they do work on the house or yard work like mowing the lawn which is no big deal cant really avoid that.

You must have a good place to live.I wouldn't these houses spread out.In my neighborhood the houses are pretty close together.This guy lives across the street and is always watching whats going on in my yard.

I've had a nosey neighbor once just like that. I just asked him what his problem was. He said he just wants space and i told him he's not gonna get space by keeping his nose pressed on my business so he just stopped snooping around.

Maybe that will work for me.I should ask him why he's so snoopy in my life for.This guy needs to get a life.I noticed when he's bored,he has a van that he removes all the doors off,then he'll wait a minute and put them back on.I think that's very weird.

I think every neighborhood has nosey neighbor. My neighborhood.. has a lot. Hah. I mean I think many neighbors always watch one another because the want to know your personal life. It reminds me of Desperate Housewives. People always want to know other people's business.

This neighborhood only has one.Everyone else minds their own business.This guy always has to see everything that's going on.When I first moved here the guy came walking over just because my smoke detector went off.He annoyed me doing that,I told if it were a fire I would call the fire department.I can't stand the guy.He always has to see whats going on.

Hi, Java09. No, not that I know of. The lady that lives in front of me is very nice. Although there have been a few times that when I open up my door just to look to see if I have a note on my front door, and someone in her apartment will, open their door. I don't know why they do this. Not unless they think that I am coming out of my apartment. It is kind of weird though. If any kind of neighbors I may have, it is not nosy, but annoying and inpatient. I would really hate to deal with nosy neighbors, because it is bad enough that I have to deal with these type of people when I leave from my apartment. That man needs to get a life and stop worrying about what you are doing! He knows better than to keep up with you. He ought to go into his house and find something worthwhile to do than pay attention to you.

I'm blessed to live in a lower middle class neighborhood where everyone either works or has a little home business. We are too busy to be nosy! We all keep our eyes peeled for trouble but we don't snoop. Have you talked to your neighbor at all?

I too have a noisy trouble some lady neighbor.my mother-in-law has had some arguement wiht her ove a noisy dog. Every time when we go out she comes out from her house and watches us. But i have never talked to her. She is a widow. On weekends she used to lit her rubbish and the smoke from it enter our house. When my wife complained about this to her she started to argue loudely. But i did not intervene. Finally she stopped that practice.

Have you ever thought to yourself he may like to meet you. He is after all your neighbor. You say he is looking at you and always outside the front of the house. Don't you have to be out there and looking at him to notice this? Maybe it would break the ice if one day you just said hello to the man. For all you know he could very well be watching out for the neighborhood for all the neighbors. All of the neighbors on my floor I would say is nosey. We all come outside our doord if we hear fighting. We will all call 911 if the situation calls for it. We all say hello and hold nice conversations with each other.
