House across the road moved out 2 days ago. It has all been very clandestine as they didn't even have a for sale sign (right move told us they were selling up).

House is still empty. A 30 something woman in a grey ford has been and gone a few times. And just now a couple in their late twenties have been inspecting the front hedge. She was carrying a sausage dog. He turned and spat on the drive way. They were driving a white BMW. She was dressed a bit footballers' wives: the hair, the tan, the clothes.

We'll my bosom has been hoicked. I'm judging. I want to know who is moving in so I can pre-judge them based solely on appearances welcome them to the close with a bottle of wine and cookies. AIBU to want to know what's going on?

Yes you are it has nothing to do with you.

OhNoNotMyBaby Sun 26-Jun-16 18:10:47

Troll Yawn... what a load of crap. MN is going from bad to worse.

None of your business.

MurphysChild Sun 26-Jun-16 18:13:11

Not at all, we have new neighbours too, our age, same cars, similar clothes, I thought we may have things in common. Sadly they are dull and unfriendly. Oh well.

legotits Sun 26-Jun-16 18:13:25

Telly bust?

Wombat87 Sun 26-Jun-16 18:22:10

Thank god you aren't my neighbour.

It took us 3 months to move in. Because we renovated and then decorated before hand and we were living in our other home whilst that was going on. Not even being goady. I'm a lucky fucker who has two homes and I didn't want to live in the mess. And I had the choice to not do that so I didn't. We also didn't have a rent sign outside the house we rented out when we did move because we did it privately.

I am also high maintenance with the hair, which I guess you mean is long and looks presentable. I don't tend to fake tan as I go on holiday and will sit outside if we have nice weather. I wear nice clothes because I work stupidly hard and have a well paid job...and I also have 2 pugs. One of which I carried today because after an hour walking she was dropping after what was only supposed to be a quick 15mins. She's also tiny and her legs are all of 5inches long so I took pity.

I'm also very friendly normally and nice to speak too.

Do your boobs get sweaty with your pants that high? If your thread is meant as light hearted perhaps ask MNHQ to update it. If your a troll- jog on.

Oh come on guys! Even if it's a load of crap, at least it's more entertaining than the never bloody ending politics shite!
Keep looking OP!

Wombat87 Sun 26-Jun-16 18:26:46

True rainbow. True grin

Palomb Sun 26-Jun-16 18:28:43

Troll or not.

No-one was someone who spits on the floor for a their neighbour. Splitters are disgusting wastes of oxygen.

GinSoakedWhore Sun 26-Jun-16 18:29:27

I'll click on anything that isn't about politics at the moment. Carry on OP, entertain us with your wit.

ghostyslovesheep Sun 26-Jun-16 18:29:33

yes bitching about peoples looks is way more 'interesting' and important than the implications of leaving the EU hmm

Nanunanu Sun 26-Jun-16 18:31:13

What's a telly bust?

The retired couple and 3 grown up children that left did not seem the type for a midnight flit. Although we only knew them for Christmas cards and to say hello (apart from when they reversed into my parked car a month or so after we moved in)

I was all up for a bit of glamour (which auto correct has just typed as L'Amour..... Definitely not what I was after!) But the spitting has turned me right off.

Are none of you at all nosy about future neighbours?

Granted this isn't a massively serious thread but makes a change from the referendum eh? And trolling would surely be " she looked just like my long Los live of a few years ago. I only caught a glimpse but do you think 8t could be her after all this time? Wibu to stalk the postie to find out their names".

Get a grip on your pitchforks troll hunters. I'm not sure what was so offensive to your troll'dar but I apologise for whatever it was.

This is just Sunday night musings

hotdiggedy Sun 26-Jun-16 18:32:10

No for sale sign? Yes, that is really weird. I think they are vampires. Do you spend a lot of time on Rightmove just in case neighbours are moving and don't have a for sale sign?

People around me move in and out all the time and there are never any for sale/to let signs. HELP!!!

nancy75 Sun 26-Jun-16 18:32:40

Fgs, op is obviously tongue in cheek. When did mn become a place where every joke had to be explained in minute detail?

Itriedtodohandstandsforyou Sun 26-Jun-16 18:32:57

Yes, Palomb. this thread is very refreshing, keep em coming OP ! smile

LizzieMacQueen Sun 26-Jun-16 18:50:34

Is your area popular with football wives?

But no, YANBU for wanting to know who is moving in.

What kind of sausage dog? a miniature? They are very cute.....

bushtailadventures Sun 26-Jun-16 18:53:53

This is why net curtains are useful, so you can spy on the people coming and going grin

Actually we've lived here a long long time and only had one set of neighbours move, so I have no idea what I'm talking about, but I would be interested in the new ones, yes...and a spitter would have my judgey pants up around my neck!

Didactylos Sun 26-Jun-16 18:57:40

poor new neighbours
don't worry, they will soon realise they've moved in across the road from a judgemental curtain twitching arse

Nanunanu Sun 26-Jun-16 18:59:45

Thank you hot diggedy that's the approach. Not vampires the spitting happened in day light. And didn't look blood stained from behind my twitching nets

Yup very sweaty boobs. That's the joy of being all viral lurifued today and heavy gardening normally. They looked very incongruous for the dowdiness of the close. Especially if they were moving in (the heels would not have been secure for box lugging). But sadly all have gone again and the house stands forlornly empty.

I'd have gone potty wombat if I were your neighbour. 3 months before I get to meet you for a cup of tea? But well with it if I got to see what changes you had made as part of your renovation and so got ideas of how to spruce mine up.

Sadly really mundane reason for spotting it on right move. We are looking to move house locally. It came up as an option.

It really was the spitting. But just me and palome bothered by that clearly. Why would you dress to the nines and then spoil it by spitting on a drive way as you go out? It's not like you have over exerted and you have that horrible tiny taste in your mouth. Or maybe they had over exerted and been a very long way (around the tiny garden) hence the dog being carried and him spitting.

228agreenend Sun 26-Jun-16 19:00:44

I'd be curious as well. Will they become your new best friend, or a foe?

dowhatnow Sun 26-Jun-16 19:02:20

That's easy - the woman in they grey Ford has bought the house to let out. The couple are thinking of renting it.

BoatyMcBoat Sun 26-Jun-16 19:03:32

hotdiggedy has it right, I reckon. Vampires are known to be moving out of underground cellars/coffins and into houses. They like broadband like the rest of us. They don't want to advertise their purchases, so they buy up houses of people who complain about their homes online. No For Sale signs, no EAs, no publicity.

Oysterbabe Sun 26-Jun-16 19:05:44

Whoever they are I feel for them, who wants a curtain twitcher for a neighbour?
