My nightmare neighbour lifts up the fence panels to let himself into my garden when I'm out, I'm fuming | The Sun

A WOMAN has told of her anger after finding out her neighbour lifts up her fence panels to let himself into her garden while she's out.

The anonymous woman took to Reddit where she explained that she's lived next door to the neighbour in question – who is on the side her house is attached to – for two years.

In the post, she penned: "We don't actively not get on but they are very very loud, obnoxious, constantly swearing and screaming at kids and police get called round something or other maybe once a fortnight, getting down for drink driving etc."

In lockdown they were having parties and BBQs left right and centre."

The woman went on to say how she and her family are "quite non confrontational" and would never say much because they've never been made to feel threatened.

She continued: "And I wouldn't think of trying to tell people how to live, however they must know we don't particularly have anything in common."

"Their kids (the kids are actually all fine tbh it's the parents we take issue with) are always knocking things over the fence and recently one of them said to me he and his dad just lift the fence up to get stuff when we are not in."

"I am an avid gardener and they would have to walk straight onto full borders."

"Also I know the dad is really nosy so don't doubt for a second he would be peeking through the patio doors etc."

The woman added that she hasn't said anything to her neighbour yet but is thinking of asking them to just wait in future – and asked social forum users whether they think that's unreasonable.

And it wasn't long before the comments section was flooded with comments.

"No it's not okay. No you're not being unreasonable. It's difficult because you don't want to cause trouble but your leniency will breed resentment," wrote one.

You have 2 choices. Put up and shut up, or say something and deal with the consequences, whatever they may be."

A second commented: "You worry it might be unreasonable for you to ask someone to stop inviting themselves onto your property without your knowledge or say so?

That's not even taking into account the damage that they might cause to your garden…trampling though to get their stuff.. that's graft YOU'VE put in doing it up, money YOU'VE spent. However big or small.

And finally, you suspect the father might be having a nosey through your windows to.. what..assess the value of the contents of your house? What else would he be doing? There's legitimately no situation he can come up with that doesn't sound dodgy."

A third quipped: "Lol this is such a British question. 'Is it unreasonable to ask my neighbours to stop breaking into my property."

Meanwhile, another suggested: "You could plant thorny plants where they are likely to access through a fence to make it less accessible, I would definitely get a camera for you own peace of mind."

And if they are looking in your property pop round and just ask them if they could wait until your in and you would happily throw and balls back over the fence."
