annoying neighbours

Im so glad to be moving out of our house, wheres one side the neighbours are lovely but the other are completely insane! They complain if we do not open our blinds by a certain time ( even if we are ill or walking around naked ) once I went out to work, it was sunny when I left so we left the parasol up - my crime - I didnt rush home from work to take it down as it started to rain BIG DEAL,it wasnt my priority to drop everything and rush back and lose pay, but the worse ever was we were called to a meeting with them, thinking we were in serious trouble as we waited for the 'translator' to arrive, we were told that there is a dog poo down the street which my dog has done! I went down the road to investigate a montrosity of a poo ( looked like itd come out of a donkey ) I have a pug!!!! she does little poos, I always pick them up too, okay rant over but hope where we are moving to is a little more chilled out : /

I think we should form an "I hate my insane neighbor(s)" support group.

Re: annoying neighbours

Were you allowed to do your laundry outside working hours? That's usually a sticky point..

Re: annoying neighbours

Yes, things might get a little easier for you.

Where I live we ignore the management notices not to wash on Sundays and holidays.

They can complain about everything, it just doesn't mean they will find a ear to those complains...

Good luck with your new place!

How are they supposed to keep tabs on what you're doing if you block the view through their binoculars?

Re: annoying neighbours

At least our apartment congiere turns off the hot water boiler at 10pm, so coming home late from work guaranteed a cold shower...
