How much could you take before moving out?
Have you ever lived next to someone you just couldn’t stand? What was it that drove you crazy? Loud arguments in the lawn at all times of the day? Maybe it was their animals who were actually worse than the people? Perhaps your neighbor had a penchant for carving ice sculptures with a chainsaw at four in the morning every Sunday?
We’ve all had bad neighbors at some point or another, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find any worse than the ones in the following stories. We found real people who shared their “worst neighbor” experiences for your cringing pleasure.
Maybe some of these stories will make your worst neighbor seem like they were not so bad after all…
That’s why my water bill is so high!
I heard my water running so I went outside and my neighbor had a hose connected to the spigot on the outside of my house. He was filling up an industrial-sized water tank on a trailer to use for his pressure washing business. (surprisefaceclown)
The Living Room Fountain
My upstairs neighbor in a 4 story walk up in lower Manhattan left the faucet running then passed out (high) and my apartment flooded. Water flowed into our apartment and could have ruined everything. This was the middle of the day. I came home from work to find a waterfall streaming from our ceiling onto the living room floor. (Rav99)
We lived in a duplex in an area with a lot of raccoons and the best advice our landlord gave us was to keep our trash inside the garage until the day that it got picked up. Don’t leave it out overnight because the raccoons will get into it and drag it everywhere.
Our neighbors refused to do this and our yard was almost constantly covered in trash. They even decided once to hang a trash bag from the light by the backdoor and our backyard was covered in trash within an hour because it was easier for the raccoons to get. I picked it up sometimes, but holy f**k was it obnoxious. It makes me understand why some neighborhoods hate rentals. (Brilliantchick1)
