Neighbour has sent me a (second) message asking us when we’re going to wash our car. We ignored the first message.

It’s not muddy or dirty. The alloys are still silver. It’s just dusty because car washes have been closed for months. They’re good neighbours otherwise. AIBU to be irritated and to think I can decide when I want to wash my own car that’s doing nothing to them except sitting outside on the public road (and it’s not parked in front of their house, it’s parked in front of ours).

StevieG55 Tue 13-Apr-21 13:45:28

Seriously 😳

JackieTheFart Tue 13-Apr-21 13:45:33

Omg grin

What a pathetic loser. I think I’d had to go and knock and tell them I’ve never washed a car in my life and I’m not starting now - however if they like they can do it for me?!

Wow! That’s insane! 😂 keep ignoring. And enjoy how much your slightly dusty car will annoy them.

Q: when are you going to wash your car?
A: well, I wasn’t going to bother but if it’s bothering you that much, knock yourself out but please don’t scratch the paint work!

Cheeky fuckers!

Think I'd just reply ' when I want to!'. What a cheek!

Tell him to crack on if he wants it done.

"Hi neighbour, I'm not going to wash my car any time soon. You are welcome to wash it if it upsets you so much."

They sound utterly bonkers.

Reply "Why?"

MaMaD1990 Tue 13-Apr-21 13:47:47

Just reply "how quickly can you come over and do it for me?!".

I would have to ignore that, if only to find out what the third message would say,

Lostinthemail Tue 13-Apr-21 13:48:15

Don’t engage, if you do their behaviour will escalate. I would consider blocking them.

Absolutely. Keep schtum and watch neighbourly blood pressure spike.

ElizabethTudor Tue 13-Apr-21 13:50:02

Write in the dust on said car : NEVER :-)

Hockeyboysmum Tue 13-Apr-21 13:50:23

Omg cfs. I would reply with 'why?' 100% none of their business

SaintReatham Tue 13-Apr-21 13:50:24

Is there going to be a drip feed, where it turns out that someone's written No. 32 FOR THE SWINGING PARTY and an arrow pointing at their house in the grime?

user1493413286 Tue 13-Apr-21 13:50:43

That’s actually almost funny with how ridiculous it is; I’d say you have no plans to but they’re welcome to do it for you

Longdistance Tue 13-Apr-21 13:50:56

Mine is covered in bird shit from my work place. Do you want me to park outside your neighbours house? grin

Daphnise Tue 13-Apr-21 13:51:29

This is just the start....

When will you wash your hair?
When will you paint your kitchen?
When will you clean your windows?

It will be fatal if you reply, however tempting it may be to do so.

Post a car cleaning kit through their letterbox and leave bucket on their step, ring the bell and go home.

Cottagepieandpeas Tue 13-Apr-21 13:52:33

Perhaps they are offering?

Why the hell does it matter to your neighbours whether you have washed your car or not? confused

FanPanCan Tue 13-Apr-21 13:54:21

Where are you? I'll come and park outside their house in my pristine (not) old banger!
