    Ok, my folks are on vacation for a week so I'm moving back in to my house till they get back. Problem is I've got some real weird neighbors.

    Small example: Today my friend came over with about half a case of Blue. When I came out to meet her my neighbors looked at us like I had just sh*t all over their lawn. Apparently they drink Molson.

    These are the type of people where if were to have a party they would have the liscence plate number of every car that showed up to it.

    So what should I do about them? My plan was to just ignore them, but I don't think that's going to work very well. Maybe I should get some dobermans and build a huge privacy fence all around our property. That might work.

    Anyways, I need ideas for how to deal with/get rid of these people. I place high value in my privacy and I don't need some nosey old lady with a pair of binoculars causing me to live in fear of living in my old house. It's nerve racking God Dammit.

    Hey, I keep quiet. I haven't had and won't have any parties. No more than 6 or 8 people at a time. No loud music. They've no reason to bother me other than they're bored/way too interested in my affairs.

    Maybe I should get those dobermans.

    Oh believe me, I had plans to do tons of yard work this week, but it looks like Dennis is gonna cancel those plans by Wednesday.

    Though, I could fire up the lawnmower right now. 4:15 am is as good a time as any to cut the lawn.

    you mean the city council? they don't give a damn about me. All they care about is getting their asses out of the fire. (we've got major problems here in the city.)

    well for starters you should knock on their door and tell them exactly how u feel,tell them to mind their own business,and watever else you wanna throw at them that way they might stop cuz u were man enough to tell them.just be a gentleman about it and be respectful.if that dont work lay some claymores on their lawn

    Three options present themselves Gil, and all are constructive.

    1. Ignore them and just do your own thing.

    2. Walk over to them, hand them a camera and tell them to take a picture, it lasts longer and they can share it with all their friends.

    3. Flat out tell them to mind their own business or you'll sue them for invasion of privacy.


    Edit: I had a neighbor like that and confronting them fixed their little red wagon. :p

    well.... pointing a shotgun at em would initimidate the hell outta em...they would never look across your fence again.... however I would go for a more non violent solution such as spying on them, You could make a game out of it... every time they invade your privacy, invade theirs twice as badly.... send em a note telling em that u have installed a hidden camera in their bathroom or something.

    or just bluntly tell em to mind their own business....

    in my country its 9pm i think - but neighbours call the police before that and they still HAVE to come out if a complaint is made. The law protects these nosey, intrusive, arsehole neighbours :(
