to film my neighbours in the shower/on the toilet and put them on You Tube?

My house backs on to another, there's approx. 50ft between us. Their bathroom window backs on to my garden. They have no curtain or blind in there and every time they shower I can see them, plain as day. It's worse at night as they have the light on so I can practically see every hair on their arses when they get off the toilet and wipe their furry backsides.

I tried to ignore it. In fact I ignored it for about 3 years. But last summer I went round and told them that I could see straight into their bathroom, and they might like to think about putting a blind up. I was very "english" about it and probably sounded like a female Hugh Grant. They weren't in the slightest bit embarrased or apologetic, and they insisted that it was OK as they have obscured glass. But, they did say that they'd put a towel up over the window when they were in there. Which they did for a while.

And now they don't. There are at least 3 of them in that house, more when the grown up daughter has her boyfriend to stay. They seem to spend hours in the bloody bathroom - every time I go out to the bin, every time I look out of a window, there they bloody are - naked and either wiping their arses or lumbering out of the shower.

One of them is a dinner lady at the Junior School FFS. And don't start me on the time they had super-noisy sex in the back garden (H and I got the toy binoculars out to see if we could spot them, but they were behind their shed so we couldn't).

So, WIBU to film the bastards and put them on You Tube, or should I break into their house and put a blind up when they're out?

Errrrr just stop looking at their window confused

VivaLeBeaver Tue 21-Feb-12 23:32:56

Oh god, was worried it was me as we don't have a blind, just obscured glass. Thankfully I'm not a dinner lady.

TotemPole Tue 21-Feb-12 23:32:57

Do they have privacy glass or not?

Devora Tue 21-Feb-12 23:33:23

Sorry, yes you would be being unreasonable. Can't you just ignore them?

VivaLeBeaver Tue 21-Feb-12 23:34:09

Why would you get binoculars out to spy on your neighbours having sex? I mean fair enough doing it nosily in the back garden ain't great, but neither is being a peeping Tom.

Stop looking through their window?

This thread made me laugh out loud though.

LineRunner Tue 21-Feb-12 23:35:16

How do you see through obscured glass? Is it some kind of super power?

Bewilderedmum Tue 21-Feb-12 23:36:52

Sorry - am just PMSL at their furry backsides grin

MaisyMooCow Tue 21-Feb-12 23:36:59

Tape them. Send tape to them saying if they don't put up a blind you're posting it on YouTube grin

Poor OP. Forced to stand out in the back garden for hours with binoculars and probably a step ladder, just to bear witness to this unspeakable filth.

Filming it is your civic duty.

I'm going to take you seriously as we had the same problem in a house we lived in for a short while, only not quite so bad. You could see the knees of anyone sitting on the toilet through the window. I just ignored it, but in your case, I can imagine it is a little more annoying.

I'd pop round and mention it again if I were you. And if they don't stop, then's the time to get the film on to YouTube.

I put blinds up in our allegedly frosted shower room windows when I realised I could clearly see the people across the road going for a piss, and whether they were washing their hands afterwards. Now that I know, I avert my eyes, but your neighbours are a bit closer, OP. I reserve judgment until I'm sober.

I was feeling sorry for you til you and your dh tried to spy on them having sex

Get your own sex

Weirdo

WorraLiberty England Tue 21-Feb-12 23:44:20

And how many times does the OP need to go out to her bin? grin

HarrietSchulenberg Tue 21-Feb-12 23:44:38

No, I can't bloody ignore them. Their house backs on to mine. We're both in rows of terraces with little gardens between. They seem to be permanently naked in the bathroom from 7pm till gone midnight. Their "privacy glass" is clearly crap as I can see right through it - it just has some wavy bits in it. I have tried for years NOT to look at them, but it's really not easy once you know they're there - kind of the like the elephant in the room IFKWIM.

The binoculars thing was more of a joke, really. They were very, very noisy and very, very public and H and I were giggling like nutters (and ever so slightly pissed) when we came up with the idea of finding out exactly what was going on. They were behind their shed, which backs on to our garden.

I can't help wondering what DSes 1 and 2 will make of it when they see their dinner lady (who has a very distinctive hair colour) in the nuddy! They'll never eat her mashed potato again!

I just very nearly wet myself - this is hilarious!!

VivaLeBeaver Tue 21-Feb-12 23:47:14

Get a megaphone and shout " I can see you, naked person in the bathroom. Get your piles sorted.". And similar helpful medical advice.

Point it out to your kid you daft bat.

Once he's announced it in the dinner queue she'll be at ikea blind buying before the end of the day.

Well if you have blinds on your windows, I would have thought they'd be shut from 7pm till gone midnight...

So how the buggery are you seeing them if you're not spying?

butterflyexperience Tue 21-Feb-12 23:48:29

Why are you standing by your bins from 7pm till gone midnight staring into your neighbours bathroom? hmm

Op you are coming across slightly odd...

tethersend Tue 21-Feb-12 23:49:28

Plant some Leylandii.

Or build a wall. Or a tower.

I've just figured out your fibb
