Entitled neighbors try to make women pay vet bill after their dog escapes and eats all her flowers: 'They want me to pay half since I "poisoned" their dog'

Who's right in the situation? This neighbor thinks that because their neighbor has poisonous flowers, it's her fault that their dog got sick. Before we go any further, just know that the doggo is okay. He just has a habit of digging under his owner's fence and escaping. His owners claim he's just exploring. However, the Original Poster (OP) has been weary from the start. She even tried to offer multiple solutions to her neighbors to prevent their dog from escaping, but they wouldn't get on boar…

‘Not gonna happen’: Nosy resident attempts to stop neighbor from building a fence to keep them out of their business, leading to a property dispute

When you're a kid, and you are watching a Hallmark movie or just a show that displays the Perfect American Family, you end up assuming that your neighbors are going to become your best friends. In those movies, they always greet each other good morning, their kids end up becoming best friends (and then more often than not - end up getting married), and it always seems like having neighbors is the best experience ever. Is it actually like that in real life? Absolutely not. You are lucky if your…

‘Sweet sweet victory’: Housemate settles score with cheapskate roommate who refuses to pay the bills by filling up the entire house with bubbles

The Original Poster (OP) lives in an apartment with two housemates. Since OP and the other tenants are all students, they occasionally have to live on a tight budget.

‘That’ll show them': Neighbor forces demanding tenants out of their apartment by reporting to management that 4 people were living in a 1 bedroom apartment

The best kinds of neighbors are neighbors you have absolutely no contact with. The less you engage, the better your relationship will be, which means everyone is happy. What this basically means, is that if every single neighbor would have minded their own business, and kept for themselves, there would be much less neighborhood drama to deal with. The person who wrote this Reddit story had neighbors who were completely the opposite of the ones described above. They would constantly complain abo…

‘Stop complaining about your neighbors’: Noisy bench-pressing neighbor falls through the floor, landlord pays up after ignoring tenant’s complaints

It all started with a loud noise from above, and before he knew it, this tenant’s upstairs neighbor came falling through the ceiling. Yup, that actually happened. Thankfully, everyone involved seems to be ok now, except perhaps for the bank accounts of the upstairs neighbor and the tenant’s landlord. The former had been bench-pressing in his living room and damaging the tenant’s ceiling repeatedly in the process. He was also ignoring the tenant’s persistent requests to quiet down and to find an…

Have you ever heard the famous phrase 'Patience is a virtue'? Even if you haven't, it is not that hard of a sentence to understand–having patience is a good trait to have.

Especially when it comes to the neighbors in this Reddit story. OP (original poster), has a ring camera that records the front of their house, to make sure no one steals their package…

Karen calls cops on dude's leaky tire, he exposes her dirty fountain: 'She didn't even live on my [...] street'

Everyone has a dirty little secret hiding somewhere on their property—sometimes it's that project car that hasn't moved for months (and that probably will never be finished), and sometimes it's your neglected fountain in your backyard that has become less of an aesthetic water feature and more of a mosquito breeding ground. And it's only natural to be vaguely annoyed by these oversights on the part of your neighbors, as—when you're locked eternally into a plot of land in (relatively) close prox…
