Who's that outside?
Living in close proximity to other people is all fine and dandy, until you catch your neighbor doing something totally off the wall. Let’s be honest… People are weird, and everyone is at their weirdest in their own home. Should some of that weird behavior seep into their front yard, the sidewalk, or other areas in plan view, then you’ll end up with stories like these Redditors.
The people of Reddit came together to share their best weird-neighbor stories, and they didn’t hold back. From criminal activity to straight up inhumane occurrences, these neighbors are nothing like Mr. Rogers.
My neighbor left a note on the door to my house that said “You need to feed your cats or I’m going to call animal control. I can hear them meowing.”
There were no cats inside. (_anothercoolusername)
I befriended a lady who was smoking weed in the breezeway of my old apartment complex when I first moved in. She was about 10-15 years older than me but a cool hippie lady. One day she knocked on my door at like 11 pm saying someone broke into her apartment. I went and checked it out with her and nothing was wrong. I got a weird vibe, told her to call the cops and left.
After that she came to my door a few days later wearing my bodycon dress that did not fit her right at all. She told me she knew I had been in her house and she was taking my dress because she knew I took something from her. I don’t know if she broke into my apartment or stole the dress from the shared laundry room (I hadn’t worn or washed it in awhile). I called the office management and they had the cops come and talk to her. She was told not to have contact with me.
I didn’t see her much after that but did come home one day to have my door unlocked and barely open. I had to have a maintenance guy go in first and check the place out. There was nothing wrong or missing but I assume it was her. I was basically terrified this woman was stalking me and the office was reasonable enough to let me break my lease and move out.

Dad and his friend were helping older neighbor and his wife with something at their house. Besides the house smelling like cigarette smoke, there was a room with a s**t ton of Nazi memorabilia. (Nopefuckthis)
