'Sleep well, dude': Man leaves loud neighbor with parting gift after long standing neighborly dispute

'Sleep well, dude': Man leaves loud neighbor with parting gift after long standing neighborly dispute

Your neighbors are your closest allies. They can assist with receiving packages, impart insightful information about the surrounding area, keep a watchful eye on your home, and much more. However, should misfortune find you and you are forced to live next door to a horrible person who has been a headache since the minute she arrived, do you participate in her little game of torment or do you cave into all of her absurd requests in an attempt to keep things at bay? The Original Poster (OP) recen…

Young couple gets payback on entitled neighbor after he repeatedly trespasses property: 'I’ve honestly never seen somebody shut up so quickly'

Young couple gets payback on entitled neighbor after he repeatedly trespasses property: 'I’ve honestly never seen somebody shut up so quickly'

When young couples move into a neighborhood, it's no surprise that some of the lifers in the neighborhood will roll their eyes at the “new blood.” That being said, this entitled neighbor, whom the Redditor refers to as Tim, really thought he could get away with ongoing manipulation, endless plotting and scheming, and frequent trespassing of property without any repercussions. Young folks may be new to the neighborhood, but that in no way means that they are willing to be used and played around…

Homeowner writes scathing note to HOA Karen who tried to tow their car from in front of their own home: 'She called the cops on me'

Constant proximity to other people—without any recourse or avenues for escape—is maddening. I guarantee, if you were locked in a room, even with your favorite person in the world, it wouldn't take long (and even less time than you'd think) before you'd grow sick of the sight of them and tired of the sound of their voice, wishing their mouth would stay shut every time they breathed. Say now, that you don't even like this person. Worse yet, you have your entire life savings and livelihood investe…

Neighbor's relationship freezes (along with their driveway) over plowing dispute: 'Some people be super lazy'

In rural areas, it's not uncommon to have long individual or shared driveways that aren't serviced by public services, instead being completely up to the owner/s to maintain. This can present some tricky situations for the unprepared in areas that regularly or irregularly receive heavy snowfall, where they might wake up one morning and find themselves unable to leave their home.

Neighbors trade petty notes after noise complaint: ‘I genuinely hope the guilt that response [elicited] haunts this woman for decades’

Neighbors trade petty notes after noise complaint: ‘I genuinely hope the guilt that response [elicited] haunts this woman for decades’

Having a difficult neighbor in a claustrophobic apartment building can make your living situation nearly impossible. As soon as someone is accused of making too much noise, people can get petty and defensive really quickly. For instance, a friend of mine had an upstairs neighbor who stomped around constantly at 3 am every morning. As soon as he was kindly asked to be quiet moving forward, the neighbor argued he was stomping because he was trying to tell her to quiet down. This, of course, was h…

'I looked at him, laughed, and turned off the snow blower': Neighbors watch as dude shovels their shared driveway for five hours

Snow shoveling is hard work, but these neighbors don't care. If they can be cozy in their home while this OP does all the heavy lifting, that's perfectly fine with them. Out of all the outdoor chores, shoveling snow is a lot of people's least favorite task. At least when you rake leaves, they're pretty light! Snow is heavy and bulky, so you get sweaty and tired out instantly. The dude in this petty revenge tale didn't shovel for just an hour or two. No, instead, they had to clear out their driv…

'She couldn't get it out': Lazy neighbor pays the ice when her car gets snowed over after stealing her neighbors' already cleared spots

In stories, when a character has done something wrong or displays a glaring personality flaw, there's generally a direct price that is played at some point in the story, usually soon thereafter. In life, there are relatively few times when the lesson or moral to the story of your wrongful actions is quite so clear. No, usually, we get away with being generally lazy, cruel, entitled, or plain old wrong for far too long before that karmic pendulum swings back in our direction… sometimes, we may e…

It's incredible how easily a loud noise for a short duration at an inappropriate time can drive even the most level-headed person to madness… Now, I'm not claiming any sort of enlightenment or monkhood, but I'd like to think I'm a reasonable sort of guy. However, waking up in the early hours of the morning to my neighbor's car radio blasting at an unnecessarily loud volume while he's warming up his car is enough to make my blood boil. Dude, you're not even in the car. Do you really need to be a…
