This isn't a neighbours from hell story, but I am so sick of our neighbours (we rent a condo--everyone else in the building owns theirs so naturally we are suspicious since we're younger and not wealthy). They'll sneak out and check what we put in the recycling and garbage every time we take it out. If I bring home a bottle of cider or a case of beer, I feel a million eyes on me. It's ridiculous because we are SO quiet (the only reason we moved into a geriatric building complex is because we so badly needed the quietude), and so friendly/respectful, but everyone seems to hate us. We just recently swapped in a car for one better on gas/smaller, and three sets of neighbours contacted my landlord, even though I submitted the new plates and pertinent information to strata myself. One neighbour emailed my landlord and told her sternly that we have an (indoor) cat, which my landlord knew about because she approved it when we adopted her, and it's ALLOWED. Luckily our landlord is on our side, but the neighbours are nuts. Oh! And we get a weekly CSA box delivery. Last week a neighbour actually accosted the sweet farm delivery person and asked what she was putting in our box. Because obviously it must have been something shady and not organic kale. Oh! And the other night we had ONE guest over, and our immediate next door neighbour came by our back door with a flashlight. I was just talking to him (a coworker), but I feel like they think we have squatters since (gasp!) he drives a car and it was parked in the visitor's parking.
When did you move to Florida?
My ex's grandmother lived in a condo place filled primarily older people. Everyday, a lady would come down to the pool for "adult swim." Not to get in the water but to make certain that no children were the in pool. If this meant that the pool sat empty for an hour, so be it.
