The idiots on the corner are blasting music out of their house. Nasty offensive lyrics about putting your dick on my shoulder or something...
All the kids in the area are kicking their ball into our hedge and systematically destroying it.
They woke DS up last night (twice) and then got lippy with DH when he asked them to keep it down.

I REALLY hate my neighbours.
1.They threw stones at my kittens when they dared venture into their garden.
2.They are small minded members of the parish council and spend their weekends walking round the village checking up on what the residents are up to.
3.I had to take them to court to allow my painters onto their drive for 10 mins-yes 10 mins to paint our bargeboards.

We've just listened to our upstairs neighbour having a shag on the living room floor.
they're not really that bad, just young and listen to shit music too loud(Transvision Vamp this morning, Phil Collins last night. What's that all about?)

WishICouldGiveUpWork, so glad to hear that members of the parish council throw things at tiny kittens. Bastards

WishICouldGiveUpWork Sun 14-May-06 20:47:13

Well they also kicked up a huge stink when our wallaby got into their garden-even took a phot as proof and then wrote to complain.
Neightbours the other side positively encouraged him to go into their garden-not that he ever did

Will kick off again shortly as have just applied forplanning permission for a conservatory-somewhere to keep DD and her ever growing collection of multi-coloured plastic.

Parish councils-busy bodies with nothing better to do with their lives

Ours threw a used condom out of an upstairs window down onto our kitchen windowsill this afternoon. Then we found 2 more...
(I have started a thread asking for legal views on how to handle it).

I dislike my neighbours on one side. They rent the house,are up their own arses, have no discipline over their kids and take no repsonsibility for them. When we complained about the scratches the kids had made on our cars, the father walked off and left his wife to deal with it despite the fact that the 5 year old admitted to climbing on my car bonnet to pull my cat's tail.

Today, the brat chased our cat 5 times, each time resulting in him smashing his way through the cat flap.........ds(13) got so pissed off with this, that he went outside whilst we were having dinner to tell the mother to ask xx bot to chase the cat or we'd end up with a broken cat flap...She laughed but said OK.

They move out at the end of the month - thank heavens.

Still could be worse,the previous neighbours, thre nappies out the 3rd floor window and left them rotting in the garden for days on end

well my neighbour thinks she is better than the rest of the street, her dh is under her thumb so much so that everytime they leave the house i hear squelch!! on a brighter note they have put their house up for sale she is skinny as a rake yet everytime she goes up the stair you would think it was an elephant!! and don't get me started on the slamming doors!!!

VeniVidiVickiQV Sun 14-May-06 21:27:07

Ours on one side (unfortunately the ones we share a wall with) are just utterly utterly ignorant, and clearly unware that they share a wall with anyone.

A few people around here are the same though unfortunately.

Noise (music/shouting/diy), tall growing plants along the boundary, parking issues (including them having "bumped" our care on at least 3 occasions when trying to park and i know his brothers van hit and damaged a neighbours care to which he didnt own up to either) are usually the normal issues.

WishICouldGiveUpWork Sun 14-May-06 21:41:32

Blimey-you poor lot-make my parish councellors seem quite tame...

mummydear Sun 14-May-06 21:45:32

I hate our neighbours, they objected to our building plans, got our other neighbours to object.As there was only two objections they then decided to get the local councillor involved who happened to be on the planning commitee. Even though the Planning Officers recommneded our plans for permission , the councillors on the planning commitee refused it !!!

So our neighbour who has one child and lives in a five bedroom housse is all very smug, the local councillor is happy and has got two extra votes in her bag, whilst we have two rapidly growing boys and a kitchen you couldn't swing a cat in !!!

Anyway appeal is going in soon.

SparklyGothKat Sun 14-May-06 22:31:28

TND, I have found used condoms on the roof of my small shed next to back door, its disgusting.. My neighbours ball kept coming over the back fence, though I do prefer that to my car being used as a goalpost, at least this year she is making sure her kids are 'controlled' shame the other parents in the street aren't doing the same.

i have perfect neighbours. Mr. & Mrs. Wannabe.

favourite swearword "gollygosh"
frnt lawn = mowed regularly
Backgarden = plain but well kept

my favourite comments

a) " i don't think that swearing in front of children is right"

after obviously hearing me say 2fuck" rather loudly

b) ( herd over garden fence last summer after the bombings in london) " they shouldn't be allowed in this country"

She really wants to be the epitamy of a perfect parent but her common as shit roots let her down. obviously too much sun - as in the paper.

Now her teenage daughter is not doing very well at school ( she in in same year as mine) and at 13 is wearing make-up to school.

now mind my pointy hat and warts

SparklyGothKat Sun 14-May-06 22:59:17

PMSL @ gollygosh!!!

Hate my neighbours with a passion.

They stalled our building an extension by 6 months.The day before builders were due to turn up they decided they weren't going to let us put the scaffolding up that was 2" on their side.Ended up costing us £2000 extra to sort it out.In the end they made us step the extension in so the gutters weren't overhanging on their property,eventhough they already were on old part of house.
Building inspector couldn't believe they were in their 30's ,he'd assumed they were old farts with nothing better to do than cause trouble.

I could go on forever,but thanks for the rant.

Most of my neighbours are ok, I live in a cul de sac. But some of the kids drive me up the wall.

There is a large grass area right beside my house which is a common area and the kids like to play football in it. I have no problem with this as it's a common area and there is nothing I can do about it but...

they don't come out to play until between 7pm-8pm when I'm putting my dd's to bed. So dd's are trying to get to sleep while these kids are all shouting and bouncing a ball off the fence and making a racket.
the other thing that really gets to me is that there is another piece of grass on the other side of the road which is also a common area and there are no small children who live in the houses next to that bit, but do they go and play over there instead oh No they prefer being beside my house. I don't mind them playing out I really don't but why can't they play over the other side or be just a little bit quieter.

Oh to win the lottery and move to a big detached house with no neighbours.

There are also huge parking issues in my street but seeing as I don't have a car yet they don't affect me but I know that they will once I've bought my car

I have just called out the warden. The kids were destroying the hedge again, it is such a mess the warden was shocked when he saw the damage but couldn't do anything as the kids had disappeared

ComeOVeneer Tue 16-May-06 20:09:16

I think everyone knows what I think about my neighbours (tree nicking b**tards).

Enid Tue 16-May-06 20:09:40

I used to love my neighbours

but now hate the farmer with a passion

littlemissbossy Tue 16-May-06 20:11:39
