Dh was away playing football the morning. He came home. Less than 5 minutes later we had our neighbour screaming and shouting through our front door to close the fucking gate.

She means the back gate which we dont share its our own garden. It was also closed.

My husband said it was so she was screaming i was upstairs the door was closed so very loudy it wasnt.
She then stormed through her house out the back i can only imagine to try and prove us wrong but stopped.
She procceded to call my dh lazy and say it was open banging all night.

She wouldnt listen when dh was trying to explain it wasnt our gate as its locked at night.

Never had a bad thing to say about her from us but the other neighbours had eggs thrown at them from her and her dd (was meant to be a joke) the 60 year old neighbour certainly never took it as one.

Aibu to be annoyed and pissed off at her when we have a 6 and 2 year old in the house.

Tell her if she speaks to you like that again you'll rip her head off and shit in the hole.

You'll never hear a peep again.

YANBU. I'd be annoyed if my neighbour screamed at me about a gate, yup. Or anything, actually.

And presumably the relevance of the children is that they shouldn't have to hear aggression from the lady next door, WellThatSucks...

Don't be a massive huge twat wellthatsucks

BendydickCuminsnatch · 11/06/2017 14:52

Don't worry OP, it was clear what you meant...

Your neighbours sound like a nightmare, completely unreasonable!

Trifleorbust · 11/06/2017 14:53


Ooh, pots and and kettles - it's not the most accurate English I've ever seen in your post either.

hmcAsWas · 11/06/2017 14:56

As my comment above will ultimately be deleted by Mn towers, in case anyone subsequently reading the thread is left wondering, I was unleashing a bit of well deserved invective on Wellthatsucks

Op - your neighbour sounds quite a handful. Not sure what to advise - she doesn't sound like a reasonable person....

Wellthat it's not that difficult to pick through. Why post if you can't be helpful?

To summarise:

Sodor's DH came home today and the Nextdoor neighbour started yelling at him about their back gate. Her complaint was that it was banging all night long.

She was so loud *Sodor+ could hear her from upstairs through a closed door.

Mr Sodor tried to explain that their gate is always locked but neighbour wouldn't listen.

They've never previously had issues with this particular neighbour but she has form for anti-social behaviour including throwing eggs at an elderly neighbour as a "joke".

Sodor I'd give her a while to calm down and then go round and calmly explain (again) that it wasn't your gate.

Don't yell or get angry. She's completely out of line but it sounds like she was kept up all night by someone's gate.

Do you rent or own op?

sodorisland · 11/06/2017 15:04


Turns out she is a mn member and i had to block her from messaging me as shes seen this.

We are away for tonight so hope sil staying at ours doesnt get anything said to her whilst she watches our kids.

I understood what OP meant perfectly well. If YOU didn't understand it why didn't you just piss off and leave the thread instead of berating the OP?

RossGellersteeth · 11/06/2017 15:09

Oh and OP, YANBU, your neighbour sounds batshit crazy. I think I'd invite her round again to look at the gate to prove it wasn't your gate banging all night.

Pollyanna9 · 11/06/2017 15:09

Well I hope she's thoroughly ashamed of her mental, aggressive and unfair behaviour. I presume having been called out on this matter said neighbour will be rushing round to apologise for her frankly appalling behaviour as a matter of priority?

DailyMailReadersAreThick · 11/06/2017 15:16

Oh, she's an MNer? Then she can see that we all think she's a deranged cunt and should wind her neck in.

Pouncival · 11/06/2017 15:19

gates banging in the wind are annoying but if it's not yours then she shouldn't be berating you - disgusting behaviour

Siwdmae · 11/06/2017 15:19

You can call the police and tell them she is harassing you, which she is. Is she stupid that she can't tell which gate is banging? Threw eggs at your neighbour? What a cow.

babyturtles · 11/06/2017 15:23

Haha she's a MNer?

You're deranged woman, stop shouting at your neighbours about a gate and sort yourself out, throwing eggs is disgraceful behaviour.

PickAChew · 11/06/2017 15:30

To Sodor's ndn: YABVU. Yes, banging gates are bloody annoying but you catch more flies with honey. Maybe catch your breath, have a cup of tea and apologize to Sodor, eh?

Sodor would be well within her rights to call the police if you keep harassing her about this, particularly in such an aggressive manner.

how about working out which gate was actually banging, neighbour?
have a wee bit of sense! if it wasn't Sodor's, look around to see who does have a gate open, then ask NICELY for the gate's people to shut it.

oh and WellThatSucks, weren't you ever taught to say nothing if you can't say something nice?
(I'm wondering if you're the neighbour)

Sodor don't hesitate to call police if she does anything at all. Don't put up with harassment or further threatening behaviour

ToastDemon · 11/06/2017 16:23

WellThatSucks you're a twat, and possibly the neighbour in question.

WellThatSucks · 11/06/2017 16:43

My apologies, OP, I hadn't had much coffee when I first read your post and found it more than a bit confusing and didn't have the patience to unravel it.

On rereading no, not my finest MN moment, but hmc was it really 'massive huge twat' worthy? A 'bit dickish' or 'arsey' maybe but not 'massive huge twat'.

wornoutboots No, not the neighbour, because presumably the OP has reported the neighbour to MNHQ for the abusive messages and if it were me I wouldn't be here would I.
