    What are some of your worst nosy neighbor experiences?

    Just this morning being woke up on Saturday by a lawn mower at 7 am. The best part of this was the neighbor was out of town and specifically asked the lawn service to come first thing in the morning. Guess she forgot what it was like to have 3 young kids!

    About 7 years ago my Brother and I were jumping on the trampoline in the backyard when I saw my younger neighbor (whom we don't know all that well, unfortunately) sneaking through the woods farther back. In a few minutes she comes up within a few meters of where we are and just watches us for a bit. Then she just nonchalantly walks away through the woods as if she hadn't been sneaking around in the first place. We started laughing uncontrollably after that : )

    I once caught a neigbor looking over a tall wooden fence into my backyard. The problem was, he lived across the street from me, and the yard he was standing in to look into mine, was not his yard.

    I lived in a small town where all the "Church Ladies" kept their eyes on all the teenagers in church.

    Our neighbor who lived in front of us--(church lady) always appeared on her front porch swing and watched as I was walked home from school; by my current boyfriend.

    She would walk to the end of her side walk and said to both of us. Your parents do not want you to go inside the house---so you may sit on the steps until they come home. Boys are not allowed inside the side the house--she would say again to the boy.

    I am sure it always took hours for my red face to return to normal. And my mother trusted me to know what her rules were about going inside the house with a boy.

    Times have changed---I saw one of my nephews take a girl in his bedroom to study---and he closed the door. I am sure my mouth stay open for at least five minutes---from shock.

    Well I don't know if this is a 'bad experience' but it was certainly funny!

    When my mom comes home and parks in the garage, she often sits in the car and organizes her handbag, her to-do list, etc. One day, after coming home from work she fell asleep in the car. (guess she had a long day at work)
    To be honest, Dad and I weren't too worried, as we know she likes to spend extra time in the car. Then my neighbour across the road saw my mom in the car and panicked. She thought that my mother was dying or something. (The neighbour is a pretty strange person, to be honest) She then ran to our house (bypassing the car! she could've knocked on the window or something) and knocked on the door, hollering that something was wrong.
    When we ran out and came to the car, my mother had just woken up, due to all the noise. My neighbour was so embarrassed, but we certainly found it funny!

      That was funny and strange. If I thought something was wrong, I certainly would have not bypassed the person that I thought to be in need.

    One of our neighbors is constantly asking very personal questions that are none of her business and no one in the building likes her or her beau. She begs people for money, cigarettes, and anything else when her beau is at work, asks everyone how much money they make as if it's a great icebreaker when meeting someone and she asks even more personal questions of people that don't know her and don't want to know her. Let me not forget to say that she always looks as if someone dropped a nuclear bomb on her, she looks like she doesn't ever bathe or wash her hair. There is nothing warm or caring about her actions or words & she's a leech.

    She doesn't work and her boyfriend with whom she lives off the lease admitted to my beau that he wants to kick her out because of her constant drinking and drug use. This woman is in her late 50's and still doesn't have her act together yet she is very concerned about the private matters of people who are strangers. Thank GOD I'll be moving next month, I've held my tongue for a very long time now. If she asks me anything between now and the day I move, I might get verbally nasty just from the frustration of being polite for this long without it being returned by a supposed "elder".
