AIBU - Crazy neighbours!

This one is a new one for me!

Our rather hostile neighbours have come up with a rather unusual punishment.

They ordered three brand new wheelie bins - then wrote our house number on their old ones and left them outside our door.

I am utterly confused!

Mandy2003 Thu 23-Jun-11 12:52:28 many did you have to start with and where did you keep them? What have they put the markings on with, I expect there's a solvent!

Erm? I dont get it, did you need bins? Not sure why its a punishment really?


ConnorTraceptive Thu 23-Jun-11 12:52:52

maybe they thought you'd like the extra bins?

ashamedandconfused Thu 23-Jun-11 12:52:57

peace offering from them?

or are they trying to tell you that the heaps of rubbish bags outside your house are lowering the tone of the neighbourhood?

Why don't you ask them?

valleyqueen Thu 23-Jun-11 12:53:31

WTF. Obviously they couldn't be bothered to get rid.

Paint over the number and put them back.

ConnorTraceptive Thu 23-Jun-11 12:53:49

Continue the crazy and write someone else house number on them and leave outside their house

ashamedandconfused Thu 23-Jun-11 12:54:34

Oh Ive re-read it, first it seemed like a gift, but do you mean they have made it look like they were yours so you are responsible for getting rid/not having them all over the road etc etc?

is odd indeed

ashamedandconfused Thu 23-Jun-11 12:55:09

if you dont want or need them, just put them on freecycle

SuePurblybilt Thu 23-Jun-11 12:59:53

What? Why?

chainsaw them into teeny tiny pieces and post them through their door

InnocentRedhead Thu 23-Jun-11 13:05:37

Do you need more bins :s

InnocentRedhead Thu 23-Jun-11 13:05:52

like the suggestion hully

Paint over your number. Paint on their number. 547 times, including the lid and the bottom. Attach flag to top, also with their number on. Get thick chain. Chain bins to their fence/front door. Run away. Deny everything.

Pretty Meerkat and Hully have terrible, genius, criminal minds.

Seriously OP, why? More info needed.

ChaosTrulyReigns Thu 23-Jun-11 13:20:38

are they full of body parts?

They could be evil geniuseseses and get away with the crime and you wil lbe AIBUing from Broadmoor next week about how your curfains and bedlinen don't match.

PorkChopSter Thu 23-Jun-11 13:21:04

Have you asked them why?

Some hilarious suggestions!

I knocked on to ask why but no answer....

I think they are either evil geniouses or they genuinely thought they were ours?

I've phoned the council - they are being collected Monday.


ViolaTricolor Thu 23-Jun-11 16:01:43

You're telling us we'll never know why? Arrgh!

ashamedandconfused Thu 23-Jun-11 17:55:32

perhaps they did it to find out whether you were an MNer? You might need to change your name now OP!
