If you are reading this, you are probably thinking, “Oh man, my thoughts exactly!” We have all had them and have heard plenty about them…bad neighbors.
– Junk all over the place
– Barking dogs
– Screaming kids
– Wal-Mart neighbors
– Inappropriate holiday decorations
– Parties all the time
– Spousal fighting
– Spying on you
– The gossipers
– the list goes on…
The question for this post is what to do about them. I will not hold you in suspense…the answer is nothing. This issue is probably more about your own personality than anything else. Most neighbors, with the exception of a few obvious ones, are decent people with slightly different views on things. A big problem is called festering. Here is a scenario: You move into a new neighborhood and live there for a few years. No one (because of the new world we live in) ever really gets to know each other, or introduces themselves to each other, for that matter. You keep noticing different things that your neighbors do (and trust me, we all notice the things our neighbors do, and vice-versa). After a while, you start complaining to yourself about all the stupid things that everyone in the neighborhood does and these things become REALLY annoying to you. This is where it starts…and very soon, you may snap. Have you ever had this feeling?
Now, think about your childhood. Think back about how much you used to scream or terrorize the neighborhood and how much of a mess you used to make…your bike laying on the front yard for days. Think about how the basketball hoop was on its side in the driveway for months at a time right next to the broken lawnmower. Think about the effect that had on your neighbors.
Now think about today. Think about how much your dog barks and how much your kids scream. Now, think about the neighbors that you do like and actually talk to. What kind of annoying things do they do? If you really pay attention, they probably do most of the things that everyone else does, but you don’t pay attention to it anymore because you like these people. Why do you like them? Most likely because they introduced themselves to you way back when you first moved in and now you have an affinity toward them. I guess it’s common human nature…dislike and distrust of the unknown or unfamiliar.
There are tons of websites about this topic, but here are a few really funny ones:
If you browse through these, you will find a common theme – revenge. The people who write in and share their stories truly want revenge. They want to hurt their neighbors physically, mentally and financially. You know, I bet that if these neighbors just sat down and had a conversation with each other and got over themselves, everything would be ok.
Say you have a neighbor who is a slob. What ever happened to the world where one of us walked over there and asked if we could help out? No, I guess we don’t do that anymore.
The point is this – we all come from different sub-cultures and cultures. We all have different ways of doing things. We have got to learn how to put up with one another or we will just live our lives complaining about one another. Let’s get involved with the sloppy guy and the kids down the road. Let’s get drunk at least once with the Peacock family across the way. Let’s try to understand what makes these people tick and get used to them, because if we don’t, we will just keep running to different towns across the country to one day find a perfectly situation neighborhood full of people just like us. After a few months, we will find something we don’t like about them either.
Think hard before you choose to dismiss your neighbors, because they will most likely be the ones to call the fire department if your house is on fire or stop on the highway when you have a flat tire. At least try to love…or at a minimum like thy neighbor.

OK…obviously this yahoo has never really had “bad” neighbors; Parties until 4 a.m. with work the next day… loud vulgar yelling back and forth all night… music, TV, and the “boom-boom-boom” well after even the bars close is just not acceptable…I came to this site for ideas and assistance, not some California mumbo jumbo of how this is my fault. Idiot.
September 7, 2009 at 3:15 pm
Wow, are you always this much fun?
Trust me man, I know what you are talking about. When I wrote this post, I was watching my hair fall out because of our ghetto red neck neighbors parking their NASCAR trailer right up along our property line. Ummm…let me go down this list:
1. Little white Maltese that liked to bark ALL the time. ALL THE TIME. Gotta love those little white dogs.
2. Parties that seemed to go on way too often. When their idiot friends came over, they would actually park on the lawn right next to our house and on the road in front of our lawn.
3. Seems like everyone in this town had a full size backhoe that they liked to run early Sunday mornings. For what? Who knows.
4. Floodlights that they decided to turn on at 2AM so they can smoke their ghetto cigarettes on the back porch. They just happen to shine through our bedroom window at night. We actually had to hang 3 sheets over the window to stop the light from coming through. No joke.
5. The dirtbag across the street just had to have his piles of garbage piled in his driveway…FOREVER. Old machines, old swing set, old lawnmower that didn’t run anymore, etc…
6. Same dirtbag has a nasty habit of burning said garbage in his backyard. The whole neighborhood stunk like burning plastic. The nice town we lived in didn’t see that as a problem as long as he had a permit. Burning plastic isn’t a problem?
Oh, the list goes on and on. When I wrote this post, I was holding myself back from taking things into my own hands. I tried to look at things from a different viewpoint.
We eventually had to move. For your reference, you can’t change a bad neighbor. You have to get away from them and leave them for other people to deal with. If you try to do anything other than get away, you will just make things worse. After we left, we both had nightmares of seeing these scummers show up in the new town we live in. I still get freaked out a little bit from the trash we used to live next to.
Oh, by the way, thank you for calling me an idiot.

Reading about everyone’s bad experiences makes me feel a little better about living underneath the inconsiderate that are my neighbors. These jerks have parties constantly, and they’re like 40! Their guests are too. They stomp up and down the stairs and destroyed the lobby once as they were leaving at 3 in the morning. What rude! The woman wears heels and walks so heavily all day. Who wears heels in the house? Maybe some hot young thing checking herself out in the mirror, but this is. Frizzy haired and middle-aged. After the party comes the. I am so sick of hearing the moans and groans and now it’s worse because I can put an ugly face to it all. GROSS!!! I’ve called the cops, complained to the landlord, and even knocked on their door. Nothing helped. I might just leave a bag full of matter in front of their door and light it on fire.

I’m sure this works swell when the neighbors do talk. But when every time you try to approach them to resolve issues, not even the ones you have with them, but the ones they have with you and they just shout bad names at you and slam the door in your face, it’s kind of hard. So what do you do if your neighbors refuse to talk to you? We went to their landlord and it’s helped with the property damage they were causing (shooting our chickens and any glass they could see in our yard with a BB gun and pouring foul substances through our RV vents in the roof) but they hate us more than ever. Our next step is to again talk to the young man’s step-father (he’s older than us, but he acts like he’s 2 so therefore he is a young man in my eyes) and try to get him to not sell the house to him. His father is a sane well respected lawyer, but his wife (the man’s mother) just babies him and rallies for him, so we’ll see what happens. I just want them to go back to Colorado and leave us alone.

I moved out of my own fully paid off townhouse because of lousy neighbours.
The woman thought she was the most high class teacher to ever grace the face of the earth and to prove this fact she allowed a mentally unstable unemployed car salesman to move in and make an absolute pest of himself.
The first incident happened one Friday night when they recognised me at a local bar/restaurant and they sidled up acting friendly and trying to get free food and drinks out of me. When I said no things got nasty and he started a fistfight.
I never laid charges thinking that they would just stay away from me after that. Things were quiet for about 6 months and then they started harassing me with loud music at all times of the night.
The worst times for the music were school holidays when it would go on until 3 in the morning, I would have to go to work barely functioning and they would get to sleep in all day.
I eventually started confronting them and wrinting letters to the managing agent of the complex and that kept the noise down for a while but my car would mysteriously be vandalized.
Things came to a head when he assaulted someone else in the complex and I happened to witness that, charges were then laid and I was the star witness.
I had already signed to buy another house by then and was 2 weeks away from moving out so missed many of the fireworks after he realised that we were serious about having him locked up.
He was found guilty of that assault and they have recently sold their place, I hope that they are not moving anywhere near my near house.

Glad to hear a lot of people have wacky or worse neighbors.
I am surrounded by irritating neighbors. I cannot believe how inconsiderate some neighbors can be. Of course they are probably oblivious to the situation.
Best course of action is to move away from the problems. Wish I could, not real probable. Have to bite my tongue and put up with the nonsense.
Hope that I don’t snap!
November 12, 2010 at 5:38 pm
oh and to add onto what i was saying above. when the landlord fixed the door where it couldnt be slammed anymore, he had put somthing on it where it would slowly close by itself ok well now the people above will prop the door open in the middle of winter so that it freezes in here our door on the front of our apt. are like these thin double doors with 10 glass panes on each side and is locked by a chain lock, so kinda like french doors almost so the air comes right in and in the summer when our air is on they leave the door proped open so the heat stays in they are just ridiculous people and when they come in they make sure they stomp all the way up the stairs and all the way down them and are as loud as they can be. and just dont care~ WHO LETS THEIR DOG Pee ALL OVER SOMEONE ELSES STUFF???? WHO DOES THAT?? ITS DISGUSTING!!!!!!

My neighbor is so nosy she watches from her window 24/7. She just recently complained about some buildings being to close to property line. So now I have to move them. But, yes they will be moved to the back yard for her to enjoy and maybe painted a new color. She likes to yell at my children. My children was playing in the yard and she calls the police. A new neighbor moves in the area and she introduces herself and tells him he can park in her sisters field. Then she calls the police after he parks in the field. She wants me to move because she wants to own all the land. I have lived with harrassment too long. I installed cameras and I think I will invest in some evergreens. But SHE IS CRAZY!!!

Used to live in the city, moved out of the city to the upscale suburbs. Own and paid off my end unit townhome, lived here 10 years. For the past 4 years, have had tenants renting next to me. IMO there is a big difference between owners and tenants in townhomes communities. The current tenants for the past 3 months are white trashy folks that should be living in the city or a trailer park. Can her the male tenant screaming at his kid…. “get in your *** room, *** this, *** that!” My 6 year old grandaughter hears him screaming and asked me what is that and is scared. Last night, big snowstorm, I rang his door and told him he had to move his car out of the street so the plows can get through (HOA rule-no parking in the street when it is snowing). He then starts screaming at me. I don’t even feel comfortable in my own home. I specifically left the city to get away from these type of people. I could give you a laundry list of HOA rules violations, but what do they care, they don’t own the place.

We have a neighbor that is a shut-in because she is a nutjob. She has nothing to do all day but write letters to various departments within the city where we live complaining about us and making up false situations. She doesn’t work. She didn’t even buy her house, she got it thru inheritance. Her husband ( I don’t know how anyone could marry this witch) leaves for work at around 5am and returns around 6pm–while all day she sits around. The second he comes home, she is screaming at him–literally screaming for him to take out the trash. He should take out the trash–take her down to the curb and leave her there! We are at our wits end. We have no idea what we can do to stop her from harassing us. The city has to investigate all reports regardless of how phony they may be.

I can tell you from experiences of my own that dealing with neighbors by using kindness is all good if the neighbors are willing to comply with it. Not everyone can respect they neighbor, lets be real!! Some people have no class. As you said for those generally wanting revenge, sometimes is justifiably so. I know I have felt it and I am usually very kind and giving. These neighbors of mine are rude, obnoxious, threatening, violent and are on there way to becoming prisoners when they turn 18, I guarantee it. I am sure it comes from the Mom never being home, the same mom who buys them there cigarettes and liquor!! So sometimes being nice an trying to work things out does not happen, then what are you left with to do? How does someone get rid of these kinds of neighbor? I have tried the manager of the apartments, the police, CPS and the states attorney, yet nothing can be done unless they use violence or do property damage, but by then it’s to late. So any advice now?

I have rented this house for 4 years, 2 of those l tolerated loud music at all hours, loud cars and slamming of doors. Tried the letter (polite) explaining what the loud music etc is doing to this household didnt work. Tried the police didn’t want to take it that far. have you found neighbours seem to know when the police are turning up as the music goes down so quick. In turn you are made a fool of by the police as they cant hear what the complaint is about. Talk about getting nowhere. Then l went into the local council and got the owners details well he received a letter with dates times abusive language, the house being tampered with. That worked shock horror. If it isnt one thing its another this street is becoming a downright hole. I work 6 days a week up to 10 hours a day and respect ha there’s none of that around here when it comes to music yelling and loud cars. Even neighbours taking their fights onto the street. Come on what ever happened to respect went out of the window. Now l am intending to move in November enough is enough. Sick of being nice and some neighbours deliberately having loud music on my day off when they know its my only day off. They think because they own their house they have more rights. Everyone has rights but to a point, why cant people enjoy a BBQ with music in their backyard on weekends during reasonable hours these days? No more miss nice at least l wont stoop to their level. Ignoring works after a long time but why should we have to change our lifestyle to live peacefully?
February 19, 2011 at 6:03 pm
I have a neighbor who has a growing junk pile in their backyard. This does not make for a nice view from my backyard. And fences are illegal in our neighborhood. UGH!
March 4, 2011 at 9:15 am
This post contains GENIUS advice! I think it will work with my current neighbor, who is not like some of these nightmare neighbors described above, but just a little messy. I will volunteer to help him with his nascent vegetable bed, and ask when he’s going to barbecue again and if I can drop by . . . hopefully making him more aware of his surroundings and mine . . . THANKS!

I’am currently preparing to attend a hearing with the board of directors at the complex where I live due to 4 filed complaints that my dog was barking, these complaints date from 2009 thru 2011 and the association is wanting to charge me $1,000 for the 4 occurances. I have lived at said complex since 2004 and have adopted my dog in 2007. My dogs barking, which happens seldomly and usually settles down after a few minutes. My neighbor is elderly and is retired, which means he’s at home most of the “day” (with his own dog) when the barking occurs, my other neighbor have no complaints. I do not wish to collar my dog with a bark prevention devices nor can I afford to send him to a dog daycare. Has anyone ever had to deal with something close to this? If so, how did you go about it? Please help, Thanks.
March 14, 2011 at 4:09 pm
Very few things in this world are more annoying than listening to someone else’s dog bark. Besides crying kids in a restaurant. I left my last apartment because of a barking dog. It wasn’t fair. The owners never know their dog’s barking is so annoying to everyone else. Either that, or they don’t believe it.

I wish someone could help me with my neighbors. the first apartment when you walk in the front entrance on the 1st floor. I just don’t know what to do. This is the 3rd night in a row that they have awaken me at 2,3,4 in the morning with their loud obnoxious. I really don’t think its fair to the neighbors like me who have to work M-F 8-5 and need my sleep! I can hear them through the walls, not only that but I wear earplugs and they still wake me up every time. I think its really sick and narcissistic that they do this night after night. I just don’t know what to do though, I don’t know how to go about communicating to them that they are torturing me. It’s 4:30am now and I am unable to sleep because they woke me up sure to ruin my whole Saturday ahead affecting all I have to do today.
If there is anyone who can help me or has any ideas or if I can just warn the next tenants of this building to stay away from … its not worth it and the property manager is a passive-aggressive jerk too who doesn’t care about anything here. please email me with any help please. thank you so much! And if you’re looking to move in here, don’t bother! the rent is great and all the other neighbors are too, but this guy and his sickness really ruins it, don’t even get me started on summer when its hot and you want to sleep with the window open but can’t due to the sounds that come out of his room.

Wow. Dear author of this blog- You are obviously one of those who would not take your sick kid to the doctor but instead make a daisy chain and pray. Good luck with having no grasp on reality. Not all of us have it as easy as you do . Some of us face actually threats, assaults, and danger from neighbors. Some of us require orders of protection against neighbors due to their violence, Until you have been in the shoes of people who have had their day to day lives turned upside down by criminals and sociopaths , save your idiotic love-one-another b.s and your passive aggressive reprimands for someone who has the time.

There are bad people out there, not everyone is basically good/decent as stated. Selfish, inconsiderate people who do not care who they disturb, what nuisance they cause, if they disrupt their neighbor’s lives, if they eventually cause their neighbors to move out. They are horrible, mean and nasty people who actually enjoy harassing others. It gives them a sense of power.
I have bad neighbors who moved in a few months ago. They have turned our lives into a daily stress.
If I retaliate with noise they escalate their noise. Am I supposed to simply sit back and say “oh well, let them be”? Whilst they destroy my quality of life? Rubbish.

(I Was Already Well Into Adulthood) But Anyways, She (Mrs Robinson) Went On With Asking: Where Are Kids Parents These Days?! (As I Said, I Was Already Into Adulthood Already) And Then She (Mrs Robison) Went On To Ask A Really Strange Question To Me: Have You Ever Considered Getting A Lobotomy Dear?! (She, Meaning Mrs Robinson, Continued On To Ask Me, That Really Strange Question, About Ever Considering Getting A Lobotomy…..)

That’s A Good Example Right There….The Landlord Eventually Told Her, That She (Mrs Robinson) Had To Pack Her Stuff, And Leave, She (Mrs Robinson) Had To Pack And Leave, Because She (Mrs Robinson) Was Causing Too Many Problems, At That Apartment Complex, In Northeastern Texas…..The Landlord Basically Threw Her (Mrs Robinson) Out For Being A Pesty Apartment Tennant, To The Entire Complex….(The Entire Complex!) That’s A Good Example…..

We bought a half double home 4 years ago. After the first week, we had nothing but problems with the next door neighbors. Turns out they are real a**holes. In and out of their front door every 5 minutes after dark, slamming it. Come and go in expired trucks with no exhaust every 5 minutes after dark. They always disturb the peace. These people seem to be mentally challenged (retarded). They live like slobs and do not maintain their property. They park 8 pickup trucks on the street so we do not have parking sometimes. I have a huge list of issues with them. They should be locked up since they are fined a lot and like to harass people. We are just sick and tired of these lowlife shitfers. When you confront them about anything, even loud parties after midnight during the middle of a week, they want to scream and fight right away. I think they are on drugs and are just plain stupid. Worst neighbors ever. They also lock their dogs in their basement a lot and we can hear them cry and scratch their door. No police or authorities want to do anything about these people. They are lowering the value of my home by letting theirs look like crap and not fixing anything. Keep in mind this is a half double home. These people really should be locked up. Anyone in this neighborhood will agree with me. They have a bad reputation with everyone here.
Their day is coming very soon and I will be LMFAO.
February 9, 2012 at 10:18 pm
Podwalker, If you read this, I seem to have the same kind of neighbors. No, do not sit back and just let it be. Do not ever let anyone walk all over you and disrupt your quality of life in your own home. I fight back as much as I can without doing anything illegal. The thing that bad neighbors hate the most is when your kind to them. For example; Call the cops if they are disturbing you, that pisses them off. Then wait a day or so then say hi to them or wave to them. Its the little kind things that annoy them. Bad neighbors enjoy harassing others and do things to piss people off. If they see you pissed off, they get their jollies on. Eventually they will do something illegal to you or your property then thats when you can get them arrested. Thats what I’m waiting for. I also call the cops anytime they bother me just so that it is logged.

The liberal’s want a liberal world. ANYTHING a person wants to do should be OK. The ACLU, etc. want people to be “free” of control. Has anyone ever understood the term liberal? It means an impractical form of free of control, no moderation or balance of consideration. Moderation and rules make for a modest form of free life. Shoving it in others faces does not. But as it is said; laws keep honest people honest and the humble, humble. If you allow them to be liberal’ there goes that human factor called selfishness and inconsideration.

I have an alcoholic neighbour who constantly brings home a lot of shady people who are known to the police. She always sets her fire alarm off and once actually left the house while burning a fire in her backyard causing the alarms to go off. My husband had to put out the fire. It was so close to the house that had a flame caught, all our houses would have burned down. All our houses are connected and there are children on either side of her. It was a beautiful neighbourhood until she came around. Now her next door neighbours are moving because they can’t stand her. It’s really sad. We’re doing what we can to persuade potential neighbours to not rent the house and informing them of the hell that will befall them should they choose to live next to Jane. I don’t want revenge I want her gone. She is a danger to all of us by bringing these individuals. They constantly steal her things and recently started banging on other neighbours’ doors when they can’t get into Jane’s house. We’ve called the police a lot but they just take the offender away and a new one shows up the following day. HELP ME!!
