Neighbors are the worst

Yes I'm drunk.

Yes I'm drinking

Yes I'm on my riding lawnmower

Yes I'm singing Never Tear Us Apart by INXS at the top of my lungs.

No you shouldn't be giving me the stink eye for it!

What are your neighbor stories? They can be good but... Good neighbors? That's an oxymoron unless you're talking about Fred Rogers.

    my next door neighbors are a very nice older columbian couple that travel a lot, so I collect their mail for them and they bring me back pizza from chicago or sweets from medillin

    my downstairs neighbor is a sweet nurse around my age who has an adorable mini dachsund

    I used to have a neighbour who was pretty hunky and would work on his motorcycle in his front yard without a shirt on all the time. He had the thickest Newfoundland accent I’ve ever heard, and would pass me a beer or joint almost every day on my way home from school if I listened to his ridiculous motorcycle stories.

    I had a hard time making out what he was saying most of the time, but I’m pretty sure he claimed to have cut a deer in half while going like 200km on his bike. I choose to believe this is true.

    Best neighbour I ever had.

    My neighbors are a three-generation Mexican immigrant family that have the grandpa, dad and son run a contracting company and the grandma, mother and daughters run a taco truck and they sell me cheap empanadas at the end of the night when they don't sell out. And sometimes just some super delicious carne asada and homemade tortas.

    there is an escape room operating out of the ground floor of my building

    today I walked by the mailroom, and saw this message tacked to the bulletin board:

    "Dear Neighbor who changed their wifi name to '[Escape Room Name] & Sex Dungeon':

    We understand your point, and please know that this only happened one time.

    We will send out an alert via the usual channels before it happens again.

    Best,

    Team [Escape Room]"

    When I lived at home our (then) new neighbors nearly caused a brush fire that could've spread into our horse pasture by burning trash during a drought without a burn permit and we had to call the fire department.

    Twice.

    My neighbor for most of my childhood was my great aunt on my mother's side. She was super sweet and a seemingly compulsive baker, and those surplus pies all had to go somewhere so across the yard they'd come. In exchange, my brother and I mowed her lawn and shoveled her driveway and walk. The pies should've been enough, but she still insisted on giving us $10 every time one of us did that.

    ... I miss her.

    My old apartment neighbors, this nice Mexican family, once were having a big family cookout in the parking lot and the mom gave me a freshmade tamale when I went outside for a smoke.

    I've had some good neighbors. Roommates, on the other hand, trended mostly dogshit.

    My neighbours seems nice but I wish they'd just ignore me while I'll in my backyard. I'm not the chatty type.

    "Hi! Nice day today!"
    "What are you planting? You know the soil here is really great. We got rhubarb growing and..."
    "I'm still recovering from pneumonia. I was bedridden for weeks and got a huge bedsore on my bottom."
    "Where's your cat? I saw her in your window. She's a tortoiseshell right?"

    Listen neighbours you are lovely but please leave me alone.

    My first apartment in Norman was a 350 square foot unit in a quadplex. The first winter I was there, we had a terrible ice storm and the power was out for a week.

    I was talking to my mom on the phone and told her that everything was fine, but I was a little worried about my flashlight batteries because I didn't have any candles in the house.

    About five minutes later, my neighbor knocked on my door and offered me a candle. Which was really nice, but also like damn, man. Can't you at least pretend we can't hear each other through the wall?

    Our neighbor is a crazy old bat who is a hoarder and refuses to use her empty 2 car driveway. Instead she parks on the street so everyone else has to park a bit farther from their houses. We asked politely if she could use her driveway and she accused me of harassing her on our towns Facebook group. I guess everyone knows she's bonkers because nobody either believed her or cared.

    My neighbour just came over and asked me for a hand moving a new washer into his house.

    I’ve got an umbilical hernia and probably shouldn’t be carrying heavy shit around, and I told him so.

    He seemed cool about it and said he’d wait for another neighbour, but I’m not sure that he believed me.

    You got a plan to get that fixed? My grandad died of sepsis from intestinal infarction because he didn't get his checked out soon enough. When I had one my doc told me the umbilical ones were the worst for that kind of thing.

    Yeah, I saw a doctor a month or so ago who told me that unless it goes sideways they’re not gonna touch it given the immunosuppressants and steroids I’m on. I’m supposed to set up another appointment for September.

    Besides, I’ve already had sepsis. You’re immune after you’ve had it once right? Like chicken pox or Ebola?

    I had a neighbor in my apartment building when I loved in Ballard that had probably lived there for over 20 years. The building got bought from the original owners after a back taxes thing was discovered, and the new management started enforcing new rules, like no smoking in the building.

    I got home one day and this guy was out in the hallway with about a dozen old portable televisions lined up against the wall outside his apartment door. He saw me and said hello, and I responded in kind while unlocking my door. He then motioned towards one of the new no smoking signs and said "You see this shit?". I said that I had indeed seen that shit.

    "Welcome to Nazi Germany!", he declared loudly.

    I nodded sagely and he then offered me my pick of any of the portable televisions that he had so lovingly arranged. I politely declined and retreated to my apartment.

    My downstairs neighbours kids had a lemonade stand this afternoon. When I asked how much, their 4-year-old shouted "$1 no change!"* exactly like one of the herb sellers in the chinese market in my home town. Told his dad he had an excellent capitalist in the making, dad looked rueful.

    *also pertinent to the grilled cheese discussion in the bad food thread. I didn't ask what would happen if I gave them $20.

    my neighbors on the one side are cool, I can hear them talking sometimes. Their son smokes weed out on the porch (I know this because we were both sneaking bowls and caught each other's eye).

    on the other side is a contractor who is in the middle of a yelling and cussin' argument on the phone like, every time I see him. His daughter is adorable though. Her and her cousins always say hello to me when I walk past them. On one memorable occasion she drew what appeared to be a lower-case B in chalk and little kid loud whispered "do you know what this is? it. is. a. butt!" and ran away cackling

    Hey dude just an fyi, in a lot of states that’s a dui offense you can definitely get arrested for

    (If it’s a riding mower. In some states it doesn’t even have to be riding)

    Is that true? I grew up near a small town in Texas where a whole bunch of people visited each other on lawnmowers specifically to get around DUI laws!

    Not that I suppose the three cops in town knew much about such a law, or would evenly enforce it if they knew.

    I’ve heard about people getting nailed for it, yeah.

    Looking into it briefly it looks like you have to be on a road, but not sure

    Generally those laws are written to be very broad. Like “any self propelled vehicle”
