We’ve come a long way since Mr. Rogers-like friendly neighbors. If you had a good relationship with your neighbor, hold on to that. You’re so lucky if you did because not all of them are going to be nice and friendly.
Thanks to Reddit, people have come forward to share the biggest annoyances that they have to put up with. Some neighbors will go as far as calling the cops for no reason, or maybe they’re the oversensitive type that reacts to everything. You might want to start looking for a new neighborhood after this.
The Oversensitive Piece Of You-Know-What

Honestly, he sounds like an old man going senile from age. You would feel bad for him, but he clearly alienated a lot of people in his life.
This is what happens when you don’t see your family often or don’t bother to be sociable. Obviously, the neighbor burnt that bridge for himself though.

Great, a bunch of monkies tossing their poop around lives in the area. Maybe next time you should just use a public bathroom.
You’re just asking for a war with everyone else around you. If this is the start of WWIII, we’re so screwed.

You could say it’s a paved front yard that is the disgrace to the neighborhood. Who would hate flowers?
In my experience, those type of neighbors are the “troubled” ones. It never hurts to have a little color in the front yard. The next one ahead is pretty annoying at such an early time of the morning.
The Parents Who Forgot They Had A Daughter To Take Care Of

I hope she’s okay. Nobody deserves to go through that. How can someone be so irresponsible by letting their child loose?
The fact that CPS was called is just sad in general. You know what though, the neighbors should have adopted the kid instead of this ordeal.

You deserve to rot if you don’t think kids should be having fun. It’s rather sad that there are people out there who could care less about kids running around with a ton of energy.
One day, I hope these kids get back at her. Bringing the grand kids around the neighborhood could do the trick.

Can’t somebody break into the car and unwire the horn? That would be great if you could do that.
Nevertheless, these folks don’t care for anyone else and they have zero patience for their kids. I weep for the day their kids become parents of their own because they’ll do the exact same thing.

She probably had a box but wanted to sell it to buy drugs. Don’t kid yourself — the girl scout cookies are the drugs.
People who do this are without a doubt looking for trouble. Why would anyone else be up in the middle of the night trying to sell things?
The Overreactive Lawn Care Guy

This guy needs a serious talking to. If you’re going to be overreactive and allow it at the same time, what good are you to society?
I mean, this is your job and all, but I’d be calling the manager of the lawn care company. This guy threatening people shouldn’t be working at all.
The “Emergency” That’s Anything But

“Yeah, nice car neighbor. But it’s not like hot models will do a photoshoot with that.”
Somebody must have been super eager to let everyone know that their car is the real deal. They woke up too early and now you have an excuse not to go to work. Before you call in sick, was it a nice car?

Been there, done that. Except, you can’t really make a complaint unless it’s past 11 PM.
I get that you’re trying to be the next big thing since Avicii, but you aren’t going anywhere in life if you keep doing this. Sell the DJ set, get off your butt, stop being annoying and get a life.
The Uptight Person

Sounds like this guy rages every time it rains. Better yet, an old man who yells at clouds because he has nothing else to do.
Just kidding, clearly, this guy has a problem. I guess this is how Faith No More found Chuck Mosley- standing in a middle of street, yelling for nothing.

Do it. Light a bag of crap on fire. They can’t do anything about it. It’s your trash bin, but their garbage, so that’s their fault.
If it were me, I would cut the bottom of the bag before placing it in front of their door. That way, all the trash comes out of the bag.
The Irresponsible Pet Owner

You’re lucky nobody called Animal Control for letting your dog wander. However, the neighbor is going to fire back with “Sorry, buddy. I don’t pay for other people’s mistakes.”
It’s a lesson we can all learn from and more importantly, this dog needs a leash next time.
The One That Got Away

Such a shame. Some people can’t seem to enjoy having neighbors. It’s a hit or miss whenever you’re the new people on the street.
However, this should give you hope that not all neighbors are mean. Unlike this guy, he was just looking for someone to challenge.

In some places, certain cities refuse to send animal control. You’d have to grab the cats and give them to the pound and prove they’re not owned.
However, this is totally not cool. Why would anyone leave such cute animals out in the world, all alone like that?
The One With A Happy Ending

If only more of life’s problems could be solved by hitting someone with a nectarine tree in a pot. Maybe they can, but we should only give it a try in certain situations.
No, don’t go doing that to your neighbor. We can learn from this situation by realizing that we don’t know much about the neighbors and take the chance to get to know them.
The One Who Yells For No Apparent Reason

Hey, at least the gun was locked and he had the key for it. It sounds like they were a lot more responsible of a gun owner than someone from Grand Theft Auto.
Next time, maybe don’t yell, but politely say “That’s my gun, please don’t go near it.” See? That’s not so hard to say.

Kids can be mean, but it gets out of hand sometimes. if you were in this situation, it’s probably best to find another neighborhood to live in.
You’ve worn out your welcome and nobody else is going to tolerate your nonsense. Not my fault you’re the biggest jerk on the corner.
The Workout Person Who Has No Boundaries

This is what happens when you live near someone who likes Aderol. Maybe they’re not on it or they have a strange desire to do exercises in the middle of the night.
In retaliation, I’d stand outside his door, do my own jumping jacks, and constantly knock on his door.
Just Move Out

I once tried to get into the wrong apartment, not drunk or anything, but a bit distracted. I lived on the fifth floor, and a dude gets in the elevator with me pressing the 2nd-floor button.
I get off on the wrong floor and suddenly tried to put my key in his lock. I realized my dumbness soon afterward.
