Neighbours from hell

There was a suggestion to start up a thread on this topic after Carolyn's comment on the Who are you? thread. I'll start...

About four years ago I moved to the house I am currently living in because of our previous neighbour. He was a 50 year old overweight single male who had nothing better to do with his life than to try and live yours! His taste in home decoration was so bad that people would comment "Oh, you live next to the house with the strange letterbox"

Things were so bad that I would wait until night time to go out into the back yard to hang out the washing so he wouldn't see me and pop his head over the fence for a 'chat'. He would phone me at night to ask what I was watching on television and tell me what he was watching and whether it was any good. He would comment on any arguments he heard through the windows of the house and quote people involved in the argument even though we had been inside at the time. One day when getting changed in the bedroom I looked out the window to see him staring in at me :eek: I guess the curtaining material wasn't as thick as I had thought!

There were so many things he did that made me desperate to leave and i'm so glad someone else is now his neighbour. I still see him around and he continues to ask for my new phone number... the old line of "haven't had time to get the phone on yet" has started to wear thin so I am now considering either 1/ giving him a false number and letting him ask someone else what they are watching on tv, or 2/finally telling him once and for all to leave me alone!

Can you beat that?

:rolleyes:

No but I might come closs.

While away on holidays we got a phone call from the guy looking after our house. He was 70

Our new neighbour had decided he wanted the boundary fence done up. The retaining wall he had organised was going to be 10000 dollars of which he expected us to pay half. The fence bill was going to cost 4000.

He was going to bring the concrete trucks through our yard so as not to mess up his lawn, but thought only a small amount of damage might occur to the concrete in our yard that was only 40mm thick. Our caravan was in the road so he was organising to have that removed for us.

For the record- To travel down from the mountains in those days took about 1.45. This trip took 1.29.

I am the Neighbour from the Hell!

After a partiularly successful gig I'd organised in the city with several bands I invited roughly 50 people, including two of the bands who were from interstate and were staying overnight. It was a fairly rowdy party, and eventually the cops were called. They arrived to find loud music that I'm sure they couldn't describe, and 40-50 very drunk people all dressed in black! One officer asked if we were having some sort of satanic ritual, hahaha! It all ended well, after a warning and a chuckle, the police spent the next ten minutes taking photos with various people's cameras of us all, to their amusement (or bewilderment, I couldn't be sure.)

Having an Italian background usually helps. I'd just say that some of my "mafia" friends are coming from overseas and that i would be happy to give him my phone number so he could come around and we could give him the old "concrete boots" treatment.

But really i would tell him to leave you alone.
BTW, where is that old violin case?????
