Top 20 RUDE NEIGHBOR :
We live in a small rural area near Sonora, Ca. We live in a quiet
neighborhood with mostly retirees and weekend vacationers who come
here for the peace and quiet. In July, 2008, the house below us
became occupied by two wanna-be adults. From day one, they have their idiot friends over who scream
and yell about their various body parts, swear incredibly loud, and play
the worst music (very loudly) at all hours of the night. The funny thing
is - just before he gets wasted for the evening - he quotes the AA
prayer for sobriety and then chases it with a drink. He has to go to AA
- got busted for DUI - you see. When we talked to them, they acted
like they were going to settle down. Nope. So after trying to talk to
them on 2 separate occasions, we started a complaint with the HOA
and called the Sheriff every time they were loud and obnoxious.
Unfortunately, they can see the Sheriff when he drives up to their
house and he turns off the stereo and his friends run out into the
woods and hide. Fortunately, for us, we also contacted his property
owner and the last time this happened, we had her come talk to him
AND we found a way to record the noise. Was he mad. As soon as she
left, he cranked up his stereo and started playing these crazy songs
about murder, rape and beating. He made sure to sing the best parts
of the lyrics up to us. Unknown to him, we had everything recorded.
When we called the Sheriff this time, we were prepared. And the
Deputy who came wasn't putting up with any of Tim's belligerent,
drunk ramblings. The Sheriff also came to talk to us and we are now
starting legal action against them and the property owners. I can't wait
until the day the house is foreclosed on and they are evicted.

I bought my house a year ago, great neighbors on the one side, but the house on the other side had been empty for ten years and rumored "not for sale" , so I really did not concern myself with it, what a big mistake. A domestic partnership couple moved in claiming to have bought the house (later turned out to be a plan to try to buy the house, so just renters with a landlord who does not care what they do so long as they never call her). Within weeks they were ripping off the fairly nice aluminum siding and selling it for scrap, "` revealing a pretty nasty, unpainted/peeling wood home. They hired people to paint it pumpkin orange, and they only painted it partway up the house. (9 months later, adding 3 dogs, and like 5 cats... no different, just missing window trim and facings, moldings ripped off, etc) Soon after, the neighbors decided to get some tnenats that did not have to pay conventional rent. They would sit around a fire and get drunk nightly and fight over who was jealous of whom... I just locked myself in my house or work shop, never complained and even tried to stay cordial with them. My neighbor began talking about placing a "Worm Bed" along my fence, probably the start of the real anguish and sinking feelings of helplessness. I can only imagine the face I must have made, I said "oh?" He went on to apologize for the 100 gallons of rotten / rotting oysters that were intended for said "Worm Bed". Thankfully, to date, the "Worm bed" has never happened, but the oysters remain in the garbage cans, and I can still smell them when the wind is right. I had some special company visit from out of state, she has 5 children. When she went to leave, about 1:00 am, her youngest child of about 7 years, told the neighbors small barking dog to shut up, the neighbor stormed over, jumped the fence and entered my home, completely drunk, without permission and told my spouse to tell her to shut up and go the f*** home. I had it then, for one, we do not drink, smoke, or do anything at all and do not want that in out home, that said, I finally told him very loudly and aggressively to get out of my house, stay off my property, and I left it at that. I even felt some relief as I did not have to pretend anymore that everything was just fine. A little more about myself, I am terminally ill with one of those illnesses that can be controlled enough that I might live a near normal lifespan (kind of scary), I take 12 medications a day, and I often do not feel well. I am legally blind with glaucoma and optic nerve atrophy, my vision varies from near normal to almost entirely blind from day to day, I cope well with my illnesses, as they are under control and I have hope for the future as medical advances continue. I am totally disabled, collecting a relatively small social security allotment. My neighbors are well aware of my condition. Stress is not good for me. I keep my yard up fair, it could be better, I have nothing in the yard, I have a shed for my equipment, it is fairly neat. I have never called the police or complained officially to this point, I hate and do not need trouble. I would consider myself an excellent neighbor, and really have never had a single problem with any neighbor prior. The funniest thing, they seriously believe that they are the best of neighbors and totally in the right.

I lived in a private community with a private right of way. Three years ago these individuals moved in the property next to me. At first they were quiet then all hell started. The tenant decided to let all his buddies come stay over, in and out all hours of the day and night. Then they decided to start a garage in their front yard, here came his buddie's rollbacks and wrecker all day long. Junk cars everywhere, trash, car parts, tires, you name it. Suddenly all of these kids showed up like it was a daycare. It sounds like a playground all day long except during school. The tenant then decided he needed some dogs, great. He lets them run loose and constantly bark Now, not only do I have to deal with a large truck but also their trash. They over fill their trash bin, then it gets turned over and trash gets scattered everywhere but do they pick it up, NO..

We have lived in an apartment complex for 3+ years. We are on the second floor of a 3 floor building. Recently, a family moved in above us. They immediately began making noise. The noise starts early in the morning and ends late in the evening, but lasts all day long. It sounds like a 500 pound 12 year old running the perimeter of the apartment... around and around.. across and jumping and oh.. the artwork just fell off our wall... So, my husband proceeds to their door (after about 4 months of this) and politely says,"Hey, I live downstairs, and the noise is really loud... could you try to keep it down some?".. the guy that answered the door says, "well I have friends over and I'm not going to tell them to stop making noise"... a little girl appears at the door totally out of breath from all of the running around she's been doing. This little girl is all of 6 years old and weighs maybe 55 pounds... So my husband says, hey maybe you could let the kids run around outside for a while... get their energy out... and this guy steps out and closes his door... puffs up his chest and says, "don't f***ing tell me what to do"!!!!!! My husband says, "I wasn't telling you what to do, I was trying to be civilized and just asked you politely" THe guy says, " I don't f***ing know who the f*** you think you are, but don't f***ing tell me what to do" as he proceeds to get all chickenheaded and in my husbands face... I thought he was going to pull a gun out or something.. this guy was soooo aggressive... This went back and forth another round and finally my husband was just like whatever dude and walked away... as he comes back down the stairs, the neighbor's female company comes to the door and asks who my husband is... and the guy again says, "I don't know who this f***ing guy thinks he f***ing is".... ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? So that's that, right... WRONG.. the noise gets louder, it sounded like this crazy guy started running around and jumping with that kid and they did it all night and now it is the next morning....

This crazy guy that lives downstairs from me says I make loud noises between 4-6AM - when I AM SLEEPING! He's been living in my building/house for about 6+ months now, I've been there almost 3 years. I've never had a conversation with the man. To be honest, he's always given me the creeps - . Two weeks ago at 5:45AM I'm in bed and the psycho bangs as loud as he could on my door screaming and telling me to stop making banging noises. Scared the Hell out of me! The next morning he left a crazy letter under my door telling me he has "audio recordings" of me making noises and that if I continue to be loud he was going to call the police. I immediately called the landlady. She told me the man was crazy. Evidently, crazy downstairs neighbor wrote our landlady a 4 page incoherent letter complaining about all the noise in the building. To be honest, this place is dead silent. You don't hear anything except for the traffic on the streets and drunks coming home from the bars on the weekends. A week and a 1/2 passed and last Thursday morning at 4:30AM the police woke me up. I explained to the officer what was going on with the creep downstairs. I went into work at 9AM dead tired and called the landlady. Psycho called her several times and hung up. At 5:30AM he called our landlady back and started screaming at her. When she finally got off the phone with him she pulled his lease and discovered it was up last month and the lease does state that she has the right to not renew the lease. When I got home early Friday evening an eviction notice was on his door. He has to be out at the end of October. Great! But not so fast. This morning, once again, I was woken up by the police at 6:15AM. And once again I explain to these officers what was going on. My landlady is calling her lawyer Monday to find out what she/we can do. I just want this freak to leave me alone. I'm not even up between 4-6AM so I don't know why he thinks I'm making banging noises. None of the other neighbors are hearing any nosies, period. Luckily, the landlady and all the other neighbors are on my side and want this weirdo gone ASAP.

My husband and I live next to the neighbors from hell. The older man who actually works parks his car on the street instead of using his driveway, making it hard to back out of ours. His daughter recently moved in with her young son, and on occasion we smell pot coming from their house as they sit outside and smoke. She screams at her son, who NEVER wears pants, and allows the child to play on top of her car with toys unsupervised. Did I mention he still wears diapers? (He's about four or five!) There are two dogs in the backyard that never receive attention, and my husband and I are especially irritated when we wake in the morning to the sound of the dogs dragging old mattress springs around the backyard. The converted garage looks like a do-it-yourself project gone horribly wrong, and they have the dryer vent sticking out of the converted garage window. On the back deck there is an air-conditioning window unit and all sorts of trash, junk, and gasoline containers. The little boy uses these things for toys. Every two or three weeks the grass is mowed and clippings are left covering the driveway and street (this is illegal where we live). At night the television is so loud we can hear what they are watching in our bedroom. Every time my husband and I do yard work we have to pick up their trash and scraps that land in our yard. They have never weed eated/edged their yard...I guess they aren't familiar with the responsibility of living in a house.

My rude neighbor parks his car and work van across from our driveway making it difficult for us to back in. This man lives on a corner lot and can park any other place. He also stands at his window and gives us the middle finger. He lets his dog crap in other neighbor yards. One time his puppy almost was hit by a car, the car stopped, so he grabbed his puppy and gave the driver of the car a nasty look instead of saying thank you for stopping. In the winter time he never moves his cars off the street for snow removal, and never gets fined. I could go on and on but I'll stop now. Thanks

As with most of the stories, neighbors start out on friendly terms. We did. The our back yard lots are 17 feet wide by about 45 feet long. They put in an inflatable pool that is 12.5 feet in diameter and four feet high on the sides. One time one of the children leaned on the side of the pool and water came in our laundry room through the back door; the pool is up on a hill and our back doors are at the bottom of the hill. We didn't say anything. We got the land surveyed and found out they are on two feet of our tiny lot, so we would like to build a fence on the property line. The pool would have to go; it's a threat to the building if it ruptures plus it has green algae so it looks like a lime margarita; they put kids 5 years and younger in that pool. The lady who owns the house got so mad, threatened to get another surveyor saying ours gave us extra land. She is mad and won't speak to us or look at us, but after the survey line was done, she planted sunflowers on our property to be defiant. My husband crushed them because he doesn't need a rebellious neighbor and now she's left a note for us on our wooden fence. The survey line on our knoll reveals she owns a small strip of it and the retaining wall against the strip of land. She wanted to know what we're going to do about the wall that's on her property?!?!?! The property line shows that the wall is hers and she's responsible for what is on her property. How stupid. I suppose what I can do is report her to the borough if the wall is left neglected and she'll have to pay for repairs to it. I'm going to the borough tomorrow to report about the pool that's not on a lot zoned for that size pool. I will give the kids since they are so small a kiddie pool for them for the size lot they have, not for the adult who wants it for herself.

We bought our current house 3 years ago in a nice neighborhood, so our little kids and dog could have a yard. The only catch to our house is that the town allowed higher end condos to be built behind our side of the street. They are not right in my backyard, but they are up on a hill, so they seem a little closer. They put all of the main balconies, four, in the middle, right behind our house. I did some research and learned that these condos are fairly expensive and by searching tax records I was able to determine that most of the people who bought these condos were at least 55 or older. I figured that was okay. Besides, the decks are barely 3' x 3'. Not much to do on these tiny decks, anyways. Well, I was right about the average ages, but was wrong to assume that since the condos were fairly expensive, the decks are tiny, and that since the inhabitants are older that there would not be a trashy neighbor. This one lady is a chain smoker and from what I can tell a fairly heavy drinker. I can hear her beer bottles clanking on her one person, tempered glass patio table. For three years this lady has leaned over her balcony, facing our back yard, for hours at a time. I mean, from the moment she comes home, the days she works, until at least midnight she is on her deck leaning over her balcony, smoking, drinking and gabbing very loudly on her phone. The weekends are even worse because then it is eight in the morning until at least midnight. She never goes anywhere. We have a very nice backyard and deck, which we hardly use because this lady monopolizes the space. I have tried to get over it and ignore her, but it is at the point where she is always out there, leaning over her balcony. Watching us as if we are her personal Truman Show. What is even more maddening is that she has another balcony off her bedroom that is not intrusive to us and also has a walkout basement patio that is behind our privacy fence. I am having a hard time putting in large, mature trees because of how our backyard is set-up and the only way you can block her properly is to rip up the stairs we have going up the hill. I have finally gotten to the point where I walk up the stairs where we have a little deck that is very close to the condos and I just stand there and look at her until she goes inside. Then, a few minutes later she comes back out and I have to go up there, again. She is so trashy, especially since she is 55. I first thought she had a daughter or something, because no way would a 55 year old woman be smoking and gabbing so loud, without thinking about her neighbors. I was wrong. It is embarrassing as well, because when friends come over, after a few times they say things like, "Is that lady always up there leaning over like that". I have never threatened this lady, but I have started to verbalize how trashy she is acting. I want to put my house on the market, not selling because of her, but most people come and look at houses during the evenings and weekends, when she is always out hanging out leaning over her balcony. The way the housing market has cooled I do not want to spend thousands of dollars that I will not get back, just to block the lady so I can sell my house. It is awful. Now, that I very loudly verbalize my displeasure and I walk up to the upper balcony it has gotten a little better, but only for little spurts. I wear my Ipod in my backyard, just to block her out, and I can still hear her inane rambling. We have hardly used our deck or our backyard in three years. I take my kids to the park a lot and they have other activities, but I think it is trashy that someone would invade someone else's space with such manic regularity. I am not even against smokers, though I do not smoke, but her habit dictates that she must be on her deck at all times, to smoke. It is very sick; she probably needs medication to fly, or never goes anywhere because she is afraid to not be smoking. I cannot explain what it is like to always feel someone outside behind your house. She is always there, always, which is very unnerving. Her habit runs her life and I am the one that needs to deal with it, which really sucks.

Using our driveway to go around their own cars, parking in our driveway, driving their scooters through our backyard, blaring music at all hours, throwing their trash in our yard, cussing us out because we let our dogs out to use the bathroom, on our property, they let their dogs roam, they have a fence, they've let their dogs out when ours are out trying to get them fighting. we've heard them trying to break into my car, they've broke into our garage twice, i think to prove a point. we've asked them to turn the music down, we get cussed,we use their driveway, we get cussed, we do nothing and we get cussed.
We definately have the worlds rudest neighbor. We started construction on our new house and that's when we discovered our rude neighbor. First, he knocked down the grade stakes. He then parked his pick-up so that the excavator could not drive on to the lot. We told him very nicely that he had to move or be towed by the excavating company. After the basement was dug, he would throw garbage into the open hole. As the construction continued, he would turn the water on in the basement and let it run all night long. He smashed beer bottles at the house. He stole anything that was left out or if he found it. He stole a role of Tevac. Tevac, is not cheep. Of course we had no actual proof that it was him, but his house is the only one next to ours. We did call the police when he decided to do a burn out on our driveway. The police just talked to him. He blocked our drainage pipe and also throws his cigarette butts on our front lawn. Again we call the police. The police again talk to him and he admits his wrong doing, but that was all. We are going to move into our new home next week. God only knows what our rude neighbor has planned for us, all because we built a house next to his.

I'm in the process of buying a home, so I found this "hell hole" for three months. The landlord forgot to mention that my neighbors were five frat boys. The music blaring never stops. Called the police and they did nothing. Last night was the final straw, tons of cars and drinking at 3 am I had it. To top it off on the 4th one of these "fine young men" exposed himself to me. The landlord won't return calls nor do anything about this dump. I hope, I can survive the next 14 days.
My neighbors are always causing me and the other neighbors a lot of trouble. Their dogs harrass me. The police don't seem to care they won't do anything about it. I don't know what to do.
My rude neighbors live across the street from me. The husband is a "minister." The couple have two "grown" children who park their cars in front of my house. My guests can't even park in front of my house. These two grown children frequently block my mailbox. The postperson has often refused to deliver our mail because of this "minister's" children. When I have to park on the street, in front of my home, they look at me like I'm the sinner.
Mr. Rude bought the house next door in a deed restricted neighborhood in Texas. It was a lovely gentleman's ranch, well kept house on half an acre, 5 acres of pasture land, a barn and storage building for tractor and horse trailer. Previous neighbors took a lot of pride in it. When Mr R moved in, he trashed the yard with appliances, Coke vending machine, building materials and other unidentifiable stuff. Totally filled that half an acre with junk. My favorite was the bi-fold doors that moved around the front yard as the lawn got mowed and the washer and drier that traveled in and out of the garage. Mr Rude went around the neighborhood claiming to be a lawyer and a millionaire and that he was going to buy up our homes. He's actually a plumber and past real estate salesman. He made a little money on real estate in California but the state revoked his real estate license for fraud and dishonest dealings. The house was nice but he overpaid for it - paid about $500k for it. Anyway, he immediately got day workers to dig a 4 foot deep hole in the front yard. That was to be a koi pond, he bragged, but it's nothing more than a mosquito pond. No fish. Then Mr Rude expanded the barn to keep his workers (against the restrictions). Mr R had the workers run a electric concrete mixer and they expanded the driveway around the house to the barn, (so wealthy he couldn't afford concrete delivery in a real mixer?), then added lean-tos to the side of the storage building (without building permits or approval), and parked his plumbing trucks, vans, cable runner and trailer etc under and around the storage building. Oh, I forgot the roosters that crow every 10 seconds (also against the restrictions). He's so pitiful a plumber that he couldn't maintain his sprinkler system and it kept flooding our property (on purpose perhaps?). We had to keep telling him to shut his water off. All of this insanity went on for 3 months. Complaints to the Board of Directors made him clean up the trash but he was ticked off that anyone would complain. He said he put a lot of money into his "improvements". His property looks like shanty town and an industrial park. He was arrogant and condescending. Said we were costing him money and that we didn't like him because he was Mexican. Excuse me! - he was lowering the value of our property. After that incident, men started showing up in the culdesac in the predawn hours looking for work. When we brought forth proof to the Board of Directors that Mr Rude was running a business (an ad he placed using his residential address), all he did was change the address to a PO box. Last time I asked if he could shut off his water because it was flooding our property, he pretended like it wasn't him ("Are you sure? Are you sure? It's dry over here.") and called me white trash. I told him "if I was white trash, what did that make him? He was living next door to me." The nerve! He's the racist. Just goes to show that money and civility don't always go together. He brought home a huge inboard motor boat and parked it in his short driveway. It's so big that it won't fit in the prefab steel building (which could easily house an RV). The man is a fool and we all know a fool and his money are soon parted. Can't wait for him to run through his so he'll move away.
My neighbors buzzed down a tree in their yard and put the wood in my yard. I asked them to remove it. A couple of days later while I was taking my dog out back I'm greeted by a 15-foot-tall blaze in my yard. Instead of putting it somewhere on their own property to burn, they burnt it on mine. I promptly put up a posted sign the next day. A couple of days later I receive a call from my landlord saying the neighbors are complaining about the posted sign. I explained the reason for it and he said it wouldn't happen again. A couple of weeks later they put all of their garden brush into the area they burnt their tree parts in my yard. So the sign went back up. They ended up complaining again but the landlord didn't care this time. After a freak ice/snow storm a huge branch fell from my tree into each of our backyards. I enlisted a tree-removal friend of mine to remove it. Since it was a large storm, he had a lot of clients to hit up, but he was going to come three days after the storm. The first day after the storm my neighbor buzz-sawed the fallen limb and took the firewood, leaving all of the small branches for me to clean up. Nowadays my neighbor mows all of his yard into my yard. He starts mowing toward my yard along his driveway and works his way closer and closer to my property, until finally mowing his whole yard into my yard. So I rake it back into his lawn, mostly because I only use a push mower and all of this extra grass would ruin it. One day recently I was walking my dog out back while the neighbor was mowing. As I was nearing my house, my neighbor road his lawnmower diagonally at me quickly and shouted something. I shouted "What was that?!" and he shouted it quieter. When he finished mowing I came outside and asked what did he want to talk about. He asked if I was going to keep "kicking" my grass into his yard and I explained to him why I rake it into his yard. He said big deal, his grass is only a half-inch tall. He said if I do it again he will tell my landlord. He has not mowed since this encounter. There's probably more I can't recall at this moment. These neighbors are easily some of the worst ever.
HELLO, THIS IS OUR STORY WE HAVE LIVED IN OUR FIRST FOR EIGHT MONTHS AND WE HAVE HAD NOTHING BUT TROUBLE SINCE. WHEN I WAS COMING TO CLEAN THE HOUSE UP, BEFORE WE EVEN MOVED IN OUR NEW NEIGHBOR ACROSS THE STREET CAME RUNNING OVER TO WARN ME ABOUT ALL THE OTHER NEIGHBORS.: WHO WAS THE DRUNK; BORROWED EVERYTHING; WHO WAS THE PERSON WHO CALLED THE COPS ABOUT EVERYTHING AND SO ON. AFTER WE MOVED IN AND THIS PERSON'S SON AND MY SON BECAME FRIENDS.(THEY ARE BOTH 7) FROM THE BEGINNING THERE WAS PROBLEMS HER SON WOULD COME TO ME AND SAY MY SON WAS BEING RUDE TO HIM. MY SON WOULD BE IN TROUBLE. AS TIME WENT ON THEY WOULD PLAY OUTSIDE AND I WOULD CATCH THE OTHER CHILD TAKING MY SON'S TOYS,HITTING HIM AND CALLING HORRIBLE NAMES. WHEN I SAID SOMETHING TO HIS MOTHER SHE SAID SHE DIDN'T WANT INVOLVED WITH THE KIDS PROBLEMS. SHE WOULD DO NOTHING!!! ONE DAY I WAS TRYING TO BE NICE AND SPEAK TO THEM (HER HUSBAND AND HER) WE WERE DISCUSSING MORTGAGES AND STUFF AND SHE SAID "SHE THOUGHT WE WERE GETTING SPECIAL FINANCIAL HELP FOR OUR HOUSE PAYMENT" I NICELY EXPLAINED THAT WAS NOT THE CASE AND WE WENT TO A BANK APPLIED FOR THE LOAN JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE DOES. HOW RUDE CAN YOU BE TO ASSUME THAT. THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS THE FIRST NEIGHBOR THAT COMES TO TALK TO AFTER OR IN THIS CASE BEFORE YOU MOVE IN IS THE ONE WHO MOST LIKELY IS THE ONE THAT CAUSES THE MOST PROBLEMS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

I just recently moved into an apartment with a girlfriend of mine. I smoke and while moving into the apartment I threw my butts into the patch of grass directly outside my front door. A few days later another tenant from who lives about 20 doors down from me left a note on my door, (Granted I cleaned up the butts the day after the move) the note said, "Please don’t use our lawn as an ashtray". Then just the other day my roommate was walking to her car and was stopped by an old couple who told her the butts were unacceptable. Now like I said they have been cleaned up for a week no. I do consider this harassment and for two girls who are never home we surely are well known. Also when I go outside to smoke I bring a can with me to throw the butt in, and notice other tenants looking out their windows at me. This is a little rude in my opinion not mention sad that older tenants have nothing better to do than spy on me. Perhaps there are not enough Bingo games going on in the area!

I have a neighbor that continuously sends her kids over to our yard to play without asking permission. When I hire a babysitter, she sends her kids to my home to get free babysitting. Her son picks all the needles off our newly planted pine trees. She has admitted to reading our newspaper without permission and then folding it back into the wrapper and placing it back on our sidewalk. But the rudest thing she has done to date is open our 401 statement and write a note on the envelope saying--"Sorry opened by mistake." She is truly a walking episode of a "Desperate Housewife." When we confronted her husband and her nicely on these issues she said we were overly sensitive.
