'THERE'S A HUGE SPIDER LOOSE IN MY HOUSE': Neighbor steals package, gets hairy eight-legged surprise

It's the holiday season, which once meant that you'd venture forth into the world to carefully select gifts for all your loved ones, making sure to get everyone something that they truly desired but wouldn't have bought (or even have been able to find) for themselves— ensuring that they know how much you appreciate them and how special they are in your life. For every father in the world, that's apparently a new shirt and tie for the office and a single pack of boxers to last him until next yea…

'[Neighbors] insisted on us getting a fine': Neighbor gets petty after Karens make him pay a $50 fine because his chicken ended up on their property

Shouldn't animal control have been able to shut down this Karen duo? The fact that they were able to intimidate animal control into enforcing a fine that would have otherwise just been a warning says a lot more about the fragile authority of animal control than anything else. Now, personally speaking, I could not live right next to someone who keeps a dozen chickens and who always is having problems with those chickens because of raccoons and other animal attacks. That is not exactly my neighbo…

'My grandparents reminded the neighbor that they had a deal': Man tells neighbors he'll sue if they renovate their home

'My grandparents reminded the neighbor that they had a deal': Outraged dude tells neighbor he will sue if they renovate their home

This guy felt oddly entitled to his next door neighbor's home . There are a million neighbor feuds for this very reason: you can't really tell other people how to run their lives. Sure, you can try to cajole your neighbor to take down her Christmas lights now that it's April, or maybe you can talk a different neighbor into taking down the floodlights that blind you while you try to sleep at night. But it doesn't always go as planned, and in this guy's case, his neighbors retaliated against him…

'Opportunity knocked to pay her back': Exasperated homeowner gets back at Karen neighbor for excessive HOA reports

Imagine paying a premium to work your way into this crazy housing market, purchasing a house from someone who paid a quarter of that amount for it 15 years ago. You're probably still going to be coming to grips with the weight of your new mortgage when you're confronted by your new neighbor, a “lifetime” resident, who regards you with disdain because, for one reason or another, they don't think you're worthy of replacing their longtime neighbors whom they had grown fond of. The reality is that…

'That's gonna cost you': Spying neighbor calls police because of a few leaves, police threaten to tow his car instead

In life, it's not worth worrying about the little things, especially when there are much bigger things to worry about… Yet, each neighborhood somehow manages to have that one neighbor who has nothing important to worry about and spends their days obsessing over petty details and perceived slights, plotting about how they're going to hold their neighbors accountable for that single blade of grass that went unmowed, or that leaf that blew over the property line that one time three summers ago.

'I acquired the rights to their leaves': Guy collects massive pile of leaves from neighbors to get back at collection company

It's fairly perplexing when a company is particularly bad at providing a service, especially when that company's sole purpose for existence is to provide that service. When you're a leaf collection company, that kind of implies that you're going to be collecting a lot of leaves, and it would be fair for people to expect you to be adept at doing so. Well, it turns out that while a lot of companies brand themselves as providing such-and-such service, really, their main priority isn't providing go…

'I forgot to tell her': Couple eclipses nosy Karen neighbor's home with massive privacy fence

Moving house is a stressful affair that is capped off by the uncertainty of who your new neighbors will be. It's like you're spending your entire life savings to get a single roll of a D20, which could very well end up in a critical failure. After all, nothing makes or breaks the enjoyment of a peaceable existence like ending up next to the wrong people; you could have the most perfect abode that you'd ever dreamed of and still be more miserable than you were in your little old decrepit one if…

'I tried calling him': Parking spot stealing neighbor responds rudely to courtesy call, his car gets towed

When you come home to find a strange car parked in your driveway or assigned parking space, there really isn't much more to be done than to go through the proper procedure for having that car ticketed and towed. Of course, if you're feeling generous and know your neighbor owns the car, it might be the neighborly thing to do to give them a heads-up or a reminder that they've parked in your space. You never know. There could be some kind of emergency going on, like they could have really needed t…

'Another woman exposed her affair with the husband': Online neighborhood argument accidentally exposes terrible neighbor's affair

Sometimes, your petty actions go much further than you had originally intended, and without realizing it, you're pulling on a thread that will continue to unravel, causing a cascading effect that knocks over the first domino in a chain that "Rube Goldbergs" into a house of cards and sends the whole thing crashing down. Well, it turns out that when you accuse your terrible neighbor of being a serial cheater, sending anonymous messages pretending to be his mistress, that might be pretty upsetting…

'She's still finding reasons to complain': Neighborhood Karen faces off against Entitled Parent over community playground

As we age, we have a tendency to become less tolerant of those around us. We might even feel bad about that waning tolerance, yet we find it happening all the same. For example, I, now in my 30s, don't care at all for the screeching sound of children. Am I a Karen? Maybe—but regardless of that, it remains a certain fact that I would never intentionally buy a house adjacent to a park or a school as I can not abide by loud noises like the screeching of children. But here's the trick when it comes…

'He said her land survey was wrong...but didn't show any proof': Entitled neighbor claims woman's garden of 30+ years is his

We've all heard stories of a new neighbor who moves in and acts like they run the block . Well, that's precisely what happened in this case. Our OP shared a story about his 56-year-old mother, who has lived in her house for over 30 years. She knew the last neighbor for over 20 years and never had any issues. She has been happily maintaining her yard and growing her beautiful garden for over 30 years, and then entered the new entitled neighbor. It started with him clearing some trees to put up a…

'I got a hold of their landlord': Dude buys trashy renting neighbor's house just to evict them after they won't stop throwing trash over the fence

They say, “You are what you eat." Who are they, you ask? What do they want, and why are they saying this? What are they eating? And what does that, consequently, make them? While all these answers remain unanswered maybe they should change what they're saying from “You are what you eat” to “You are what you throw over the fence into your neighbor's yard.” Still, whatever you're throwing, and no matter what that makes you, throwing something over a fence is always going to make you trashy .

There's no greater nightmare than purchasing what seems to be the perfect home only to move in and realize the reason the previous owners wanted out… The neighbors. The realization might dawn immediately on the first fateful meeting, or it might be a slow burn, with the realization dawning over time.

'$5.00 reward if returned to Tony': Dad exacts hilarious revenge on town grouch by adding his name to books and leaving them about the place

It's not worth getting worked up about minor slights. It's, quite frankly, a waste of time and energy. Usually, the advice here would be to take the high road and get on with your life, but you might also choose, instead, to go away and plot a petty act of meticulous, calculated revenge that will exact itself repeatedly over the course of years following. As the revenge takes its course , the target will be repeatedly wondering why on earth this is happening to them, having long since forgotten…

'Oh this isn't my yard? All of this is your yard?': Neighbors insist guy's property is theirs, they end up with less land than they started with

Feuds over imaginary and (often) invisible lines are one of the cornerstones of human society. The problem is they become increasingly difficult to resolve when no one can agree on where that imaginary invisible line should actually be—or whether or not it actually exists in the first place.

These people were asked to share the behaviors that their neighbors do that they dislike, and people had a wide variety of answers! There were a few common answers that came up over and over, however. One was the dog people. Dog people, we know you love your pampered pups, but some of them bark all day long . Nonstop.
