115 Times People Had The Worst Neighbors Ever

We’re constantly reminded how we’re supposed to love our neighbors and treat others the same way that we’d like to be treated. While that works in theory, the sad fact is that politeness, basic respect, and even common sense are in extremely short supply these days. Unfortunately, some people have run out of all three and substituted them with spite, jealousy, and messiness.

We firmly believe that having good, cheerful, helpful neighbors is a gift from heaven. However, they’re pretty rare in this day and age. To help you value the people you live next to right now more, Bored Panda has collected posts about the very worst things that neighbors have ever done. Nobody should have to live next to these individuals. And we wouldn’t wish them even on our worst enemies.

Scroll down to see just how bad neighborly life can get, and upvote the posts that really got your hearts racing with disappointment and despair, Pandas. If you’d like to vent your anger about the people in your neighborhood, block, or building, feel free to do so in the comment section. There’s nothing like letting off a bit of steam to help you move forward.

Bored Panda spoke about neighborly life, and why we no longer seem to know who our neighbors are with Suzanne Degges-White, Ph.D. She is a Licensed Counselor, Professor, and the Chair at the Department of Counseling and Higher Education at Northern Illinois University. She explained to us what has happened over the past half a century in the United States.

“A lot of things have changed over the last 50-60 years that have created obstacles to getting to know our neighbors,” she told us.

“We’re more independent and less inter-dependent than we used to be. We’re also more peripatetic—the number of people who grow up and stay in their hometowns or family neighborhoods has diminished so we don’t have the connections with neighbors or others in the community that people used to cultivate over the years and even over generations,” the professor explained to Bored Panda.

“We are often ‘strangers in a strange land’ when we move into new cities for our jobs,” Professor Degges-White said. Technological developments have also pushed us away from interacting with our neighbors.

“Something that we often don’t think about if we’re living in a modern home is that up until around 50 years ago, here in the US, air conditioning wasn’t common, so people would sit outside on their front porches to stay cool. This ‘front porch sitting’ also led to conversations with neighbors who were strolling by.”

#10 This Is Why I Can’t Wait To Move! The Guy Across The Street Is A Pervert Scumbag Who Blocks Our Entire Street With RVs That He Repairs As A Side Business From His Home

They’ll stay parked in front of his place for months. Guess what? There is NOTHING we can do about it! We live in a private community and the cops said they can’t stop him we can only complain to the HOA but the guy is renting from friends of ours so we complain and our friends get in trouble not him. 3 more weeks.

According to the professor, there was a focus on engagement, and folks wanted to “get to know their neighbors.”

“Kids also had a lot of free time that would be spent outside because there was more freedom to run, to be loud, and to engage with other kids in the neighborhood.”

Fast-forward to the present day, and things are very different. We may live more modern lives, but we’ve also become more isolated from the rest of the neighborhood. How we socialize and amuse ourselves has profoundly changed, as we increasingly rely on digital communication and entertainment.

“Now, thinking about today, many of us have AC in our homes, front porches have shrunk in size as we have seen the ‘backyard paradise’ expand,” Professor Degges-White said.

“People focus on their patios or decks, creating an ‘oasis’ away from the ‘real world.’ In addition, kids are hooked up to electronics, and the majority of their connecting and socializing with other kids is through electronic means,” she noted.

“They play video games together, use social media to chat, and can have a huge network of acquaintances that they can Facetime and Snapchat without ever having to leave their rooms,” the professor pointed out that kids tend to spend much more time indoors these days, instead of outside.

“Safety is another reason that folks are less likely to get to know their neighbors—kids don’t have the free rein they once did to roam the block or run errands for their parents due to fears about abduction,” she said that there seems to be a general lack of trust in the people living around us.

“Mistrust of what others do and the sensational news stories about ‘the neighbor who didn’t look like a violent criminal/kidnapper/rapist/murderer’ raise the fear level. We may not even be aware of how these stories affect us unless we pause to consider why we’re hesitant to speak to a neighbor or wonder about why someone’s shades are always drawn.”

#40 Neighbor Tried To Scare Us Out Of Parking In Our Assigned Spot

We recently moved to a new apartment complex, and have out-of-state plates. Another person had been parking in the assigned covered spot we were given. We checked with the office and they said it was the spot for our apartment and the person had probably been parking there since it had been empty for a bit. They said we didn’t have to worry about being towed. I figured it was a person who was the second car in their apartment. My suspicion seems to be confirmed as three weeks later this person hasn’t parked in any other covered spot.

#85 Received In The Mail From A Concerned Neighbor

I haven’t been able to care for my yard as much as I would like over the past few months because we had our second child back in February and I’ve been single-handedly caring for the newborn and our 5-year-old while my wife has been in the hospital recovering from postpartum complications. At no point has my yard been out of compliance with city or HOA ordinances, and at no point has anyone bothered to approach me directly about the matter. Instead, we just received this anonymous passive-aggressive letter in the mail. They even postmarked it and sent it through the mail, rather than walking a few doors down and speaking to me like a human being.
