Cheeky Fucker Neighbours !

Don’t get me wrong I’m a lovely neighbour, if I can help my neighbours out anyway that I can I do. Next door have had some work done on their house, they had a skip on their drive which meant no room for both their dustbins, so whilst the skip was there they put both their big green & black dustbin on my drive ( which was totally fine ) we get on & logically it made sense ( I didn’t expect them to knock & ask if it was ok ) as my drive isn’t being used as I have no car & like I said I’m not unreasonable & logically of course this made sense as there isn’t anywhere else they could have put them except the pavement ( which is clear for me to see ) Work to the house has now finished, the skip has gone, bin men have been & emptied bins today, I put the bins out last night ( which I put theirs out too if they haven’t already done so ( and they do the same for me which is handy ) it’s just a case of who does it first does both bins & this includes bringing in bins back to original place. Like I said absolutely no dramas re this in the past. Well today they have been out & brought both their empty bins & plonked them back on my drive ! My side living room window looks onto my drive & it ain’t pretty looking at 4 huge bins 😡 I usually move my 2 bins further up my drive so that they aren’t visible out of my window but now I can’t do that because theirs are there. They have had extensive work done to their house ( extensions ) so room is tight in their garden but thats not my problem. So basically their house looks all pretty with no big horrible smelly dirty bins in the front garden on their micro drive ( my house is really pretty too) but now I’m left with the view of a line of 4 big smelly dirty bins from my side living room window. I want to go out & manoeuvre the bins around their cars back onto their micro drive but worry that I will look pathetic. Like I said it really wasn’t an issue at all them putting the bins there whilst they had the skip as it was totally a logical thing to do, but I presumed that when they brought the bjns back in from being emptied, that they would put them back in the tiny space on their drive where they always have been! The cheeky fuckers are now thinking it’s totally ok to just try to plonk them on my drive for eternity aren’t they???

Omg! Go and put their bins on their drive.

GabriellaMontez Wed 18-Oct-17 13:11:17

Move them now. If they repeat speak to them immediately. Don't need to explain just ask them not to use your drive. Some people...

AnnetteCurtains Wed 18-Oct-17 13:12:42

Just move them

SmitheringSmithison Wed 18-Oct-17 13:13:10

I’d have no qualms in going straight out and putting their bins back on their drive, do it you’ll feel better.

Just out their bins outside their house

prettypetal Wed 18-Oct-17 13:14:20

I’m nipping out soon so I’m going to put them back where they usually keep them. I’m just livid that I feel like a petty tit for having to do this. Annoyed because I’m made to feel bad for them being so bloody cheeky! Actually the skip has been gone for a few days now so they have had days to move them back to the front of their house. Im just gobsmacked that they’ve actually wheeled them back to my drive from the pavement!

Mum2Pea Wed 18-Oct-17 13:14:33

Move them now!
Ìf you leave it this week - they'll do it every week!

Tiredtomybones Wed 18-Oct-17 13:15:19

Agreed - go and move them.

Allthebestnamesareused Wed 18-Oct-17 13:15:24

Put them on their drive. If they are so CFish to ask you why yiu say you had no problem when they were having the work done but it isn't a permanent arrangement

JohnLapsleyParlabane Wed 18-Oct-17 13:15:27

Move them now. Otherwise you will be back here in a year posting virtually the same thing.

ChevalierTialys Wed 18-Oct-17 13:17:41

Just move their bins hmm

AnnieOH1 Wed 18-Oct-17 13:18:12

Could it simply be that another neighbour has done it? We have a similar set up between the 4 of us here and I must admit if I had moved the bins from one spot I wouldn't assume they were to go back anywhere else.

I'd just pop them back round to the neighbours. If they have the balls to challenge you then just be firm that your bin area is your land, you didn't mind doing them a favour when they had the skip but that is ended now.

(Of course you could start filling their bins with the wrong rubbish and laugh with glee when they aren't emptied...) Xx

MrsPussinBoots Wed 18-Oct-17 13:18:30

Bloody CFN. Be brave and move the bins back to their drive. Or leave them on the pavement. They’ll get the hint.

letsdolunch321 Wed 18-Oct-17 13:18:44

Move them otherwise they will think it is acceptable to leave them on your drive.

viques Wed 18-Oct-17 13:19:13

Just move their bins to the end of their drive. If they put them on your drive another time then take them down the road and leave them in a random place (like blocking the drive of Mr Shouty Musclebound with the big dogs -if he lives down your road) . rinse and repeat. If they have to go looking for their bins every time they might get the message

alternatively go around, admire the extension and make
(tinkly laugh )remarks about what silly billies the bin men are, leaving their bins on your drive (hard stare).

ProfessorCat Wed 18-Oct-17 13:19:45

Move them!

coddiwomple Wed 18-Oct-17 13:19:48

just move them now. I would be as fuming as you, but do give them the benefit of the doubt. Sometimes people don't think, this is the sort of things my son would do: bring back the bins to their original place, without thinking.

Bobbybobbins Wed 18-Oct-17 13:20:38

Definitely move them

Berthatydfil Wed 18-Oct-17 13:20:39

Is it definitely them and not the bin men? If its them they are real Cfs. Are they thinking they can just come onto your property every time they need to empty rubbish?

You have several choices
1- Take them back on to their drive, knock the door. Breezily say - bin men cant have noticed your drive is free now your work is all done so you’ve got room for them now. Hopefully they wont forget next week - smile and walk off
2 claim the bins for yourself - fill them with your rubbish, put your house number on them etc and if they ask feign ignorance and say that you thought they had given them to you
3 hide them and when they come looking to put rubbish in them say that there were a few bins abandoned in the street but you don’t know what happened to them as who would be so daft as not to bring their bins back into their garden after emptying them.

TheHodgeoftheHedge Wed 18-Oct-17 13:20:42

I would also just wheel them over and leave them outside their house.

prettypetal Wed 18-Oct-17 13:20:46

Just looked out the window & it looks as though I’m going to have to knock on their door & ask them to reverse their car a little so I can put the bins back. I know you lot are right, they will think that this is ok & if I don’t deal with it now.

80sMum Wed 18-Oct-17 13:22:32

Just put them back where they belong! Sorted!

prettypetal Wed 18-Oct-17 13:24:33

They can clearly see that my only view from the side window now is a line of 4 huge gross bins. I certainly would not have done what they have done. Very fucking cheeky. Lacking in common Sense ? I think not as they both have well paid jobs ? Just pure bloody cheekiness I think ?!

lostpurplehoodie Wed 18-Oct-17 13:26:11

Just block their car with their bin - don't go out of your way to put them tidily. If you ask them to move their car what will you do if they say no? Make it an inconvenience that they've put their bins on your drive otherwise there's no downside to them doing it again.
