There's a gnome staring through my kitchen window over a 6ft high fence...

They have installed a 4ft high garden gnome on their roof looking directly into my kitchen...

We have a 6ft high privacy fence at the front of the house so it was quite a shock to see creepy McCreepy gnome as I was washing up!

AIBU to put my house up for sale immediately??

Seriously though, do we think it's a spy camera? A weird, subliminal warning of some sort?? Do I install a gnome on my side looking into their conservatory??

May I suggest flaming bolts from a crossbow?

It's from Asda. SIL has two of them in her garden. Be aware the matching bloke will probably appear soon.

That beauty is from Asda, creepy.

No help but this has cheered me up no end. Wtf are they thinking of?!?

Install somthing creepier.

Have you had any trouble with them? That looks like either a joke or a thumb snubbing... weird!

My H threatened to get me one of those for my birthday (long standing joke as I detest the things)

Luciferbox Mon 25-Apr-16 19:14:21

Have they filled her basket?

Find a picture of a gnome being massacred and pop it in your window

Hopefully it will scare off creepy gnome

your neighbours will think your a loon though

My NDN got 2 of these ghastly creatures for his 80th birthday. DD's bedroom overlooks their garden and ever since they appeared she's virtually moved in with her boyfriend as she's fucking terrified of them.

I saw these in Asda the other day and really enjoyed putting a serious face on and telling my ten year old we were getting one for the garden. The look of horror on her face was priceless...

No disputes that I know of although we all park on the street so maybe??

I'm terrified, DP has a zombie apocalypse readiness kit that contains a balaclava, a lighter and hair spray... I think an improvised flame thrower might be our only hope....

Get the matching one and install it somewhere so it's waving back (or glaring into their kitchen in a menacing manner)

That looks like an overgrown smurf. May I recommend buying a radio controlled helicopter gunship.

OurBlanche Mon 25-Apr-16 19:25:22

Well! If you'd said you were Zombie Prepped... flame away! Melt the little shit smile

Muskey Mon 25-Apr-16 19:26:53

It is a creepy little fella that's for sure. Going to go to Asda tomorrow for a closer look

I pass a house sometimes when walking the dog that has two of these monstrosities by the front door, one each side.

I find them quite fascinating, in a horrified way, and can't stop myself having a good stare every time I pass them.

Can't imagine why your neighbour has put one on the roof though, as surely they can't see it themselves while it's there. Maybe it just turned up at the house one day and they didn't know what else to do with it. Think you need to get yourself a higher fence. Very creepy.

Those gnomes scared the poopers put of my 18 month old!! How terrifying having thosewatch you

JesusInTheCabbageVan Mon 25-Apr-16 19:29:26

Little shelf running the length of your fence, just below the top. Then buy a terracotta army of gnomes, enough to fill the entire space. I'm sure folks here would be glad to chip in grin

Needs splattering with a paintball gun.

TondelayaDellaVentamiglia Mon 25-Apr-16 19:32:11

you need one of these to put on your fence

Patterkiller Mon 25-Apr-16 19:33:51

You need to stick an effigy of something equally creepy peering over your fence right back at 'em.

Go and print off a head shot of simon Cowell and laminate it for longevity.

I think you need to steal the gnome (hide it in your garage or something) and get all your friends and family to send your neighbour a postcard from 'Nobby the Gnome' whenever they go on holiday. grin
