Neighbor made false accusation.

What should I do to my neighbor who called the house ward and made false accusations about me? I did speak to the house ward and cleared the complaint. But I'm also very tempted to sprinkle smelly fish sauce on my neighbor's door. just a thought.

It's a strange world, it's not that unusual, I generally have nothing to do with my neighbours it's just less hassle.

Re: Neighbor made false accusation.

Scared or polite?

Tell the Hauswart that if this carries on, you might have to inform the MV or even the police if it borders on slander ( and wllful dissemination of false statements ). The responsibility to investigate lies with the Hauswart and you have done good with that.

Re: Neighbor made false accusation.

What was the accusation out of interest???

The best prank for pay back is set fire to a dog turd in a bag outside their door, or the building door, buzz their door, run, let them come out panic step on fire. BOOOOM

Re: Neighbor made false accusation.

lol thank you everyone. I feel better now.

This past Saturday, I came down to do laundry and noticed a huge empty box of detergent powder next to the small trashcan in the washroom. I minded my own business. When I came back to get my clothes from the dryer, I saw that box inside my laundry basket, I took it out and put it back next to the trashcan.

When I came home today, the box was in front of my door with a note from the hauswart. I called her and told her the box wasn't mine. I use a different brand and I'm living alone, I don't need to use a HUGE box of detergent. She said Mrs. Hunziker said it was mine. Ummm...?? I told her I was the only one doing laundry that day and Mrs. Hunziker automatically assumed it was mine. She never saw me with that box.

UGHHHH Should I kidnap her dog too? Yes, no, maybe so?

Re: Neighbor made false accusation.

A neighbour assumed you forgot your washing powder?
Do you need to open a thread for it?

Re: Neighbor made false accusation.

To me it sounded like a genuine misunderstanding, and best left forgotten IMO.

No no, leave the dog alone. Ha, I know your joking, I think, but I am very protective over my dog, she might be too.

This sounds silly, though most neighbour complaints here tend to be. She obviously doesn't like you to make a big deal and ASSUME something so petty. We all leave out stuff in washroom as its the washroom, downside to that is other people use your stuff too.

I think with this, brush it off, it is such a non point. You followed up and cleared your name and thats enough. But if you really wanted to, maybe leave something completely random outside your neighbors, and sit down for an evening PRAYING she knocks on your door to ask if you left it. Then say, yes i did, I thought as we were leaving random things that do not belong to us in front of our doors I would return the favour. Am i missing something?!?!?! In your most bemused looking expression.

Re: Neighbor made false accusation.

I forgot to mention it was an empty box. She assumed I threw away my trash inappropriately.

Yeah, I was just kidding. Of course this is all to get it off my chest and find some humor in the whole situation.

Re: Neighbor made false accusation.

But then, if it was not you, SOMEONE left their empty box in the laundry room!

This requires enquiries in order to be able to name ad shame in front of tar whole building! Who knows, it could even be mrs Hunziger herself, who accused you falsely in order to hide her crime....

Please keep us posted on the outcome of this fascinating mystery!

Re: Neighbor made false accusation.

I only went away for a week! And I still made one or two posts. I've been busy going round at night putting "please don't do that again" notes randomly on people's post boxes.

"To the asshole who got me nto trouble with the hauswart and Mrs X, PLEASE DISPOSE OF YOUR WASTE PROPERLY IN FUTURE"

Re: Neighbor made false accusation.

Buy her a new box, wrap it up with a big ribbon and leave it on her door step.
end of story.
People just do not know what they should do when you respond with kindness to disrespect.

Re: Neighbor made false accusation.

So why don't you give the box back with a note?

Here's a handy template:

"Dear Mrs. Hunziker,
This is not my box. Good luck with finding the legitimate owner.
Sincerely, Ninjala"

Meh... boring.

I'd rename my wireless network into "Mrs. Hunziker, I can hear you having sex with your affair in the early afternoons!".
