I have the greatest neighbors in the world, and I have always tried to be a nice and polite neighbor myself. What I did not know, is that I am even luckier than I thought I was, and not in the majority either. If you are not talking to your neighbors, you’re pretty normal. It turns out that six out of 10 people aren’t on speaking terms with at least two of their neighbors, and nearly half give the cold shoulder to neighbors in public.
Those surveyed say their beefs were with neighbors’ noisy kids, overflowing trash cans, barking dogs, shabby landscaping and crappy parking jobs, among other reasons. One in 10 people say they’ve even MOVED because of a bad neighbor.
I have a couple of friends who claim that they have the WORST neighbor in the world! The one who wins that title in my opinion is my girlfriend who had her daughter’s wedding at their home, which is located on several acres in the country. Right when her daughter was walking down the aisle in their backyard, the idiot neighbor next door, started their lawn tractor, and kept riding up and down the property line just to try to ruin the wedding!
(WARNING: Graphic Language) Here is a RAGING neighbor going off on a calm neighbor asking politely for them to stay off his property, and cutting down his bushes.
Why do you think that YOUR neighbor is the worst in the world? What did they do to YOU?
