Neighbors from hell are those pesky people that are up to no good! A conversation with them leaves you with a pounding a headache. It is as if they wait for you to come back from work or school so they can have a heart to heart conversation about them, and not you!
When you see them racing to you with glee and a wide grin on their face, you want to put a “for sale” sign and move out of the neighborhood. However, the fear you will run into them unexpectedly at a grocery store may still keep you awake at night. Even though you cannot pick your neighbors, you can distinguish them by placing them in the following categories:
1. They Have the Latest Gossip
Which couple fought with each other? Who kicked their spouse out of the house? Who cheated on their spouse with the babysitter? Who is getting married? They know everything about everyone. You will find yourself the target of their latest gossip, especially if the neighborhood finds out you are pregnant before your husband does.
2. They Always Have Complaints for You
According to them, they are the perfect neighbors and the upstanding residents of the neighborhood. They can do nothing wrong, which is great for them, but not for you. If they see you are not perfect like them, they will be quick to point it out and soon, you will have a long list of complaints regarding how you do not follow the rules of the neighborhood…set by them!
3. They Hold Parties All Night Long
At night, your neighbor’s house becomes the premise for huge, noisy parties that keep you awake all night. In the morning, you will be cranky with droopy eyelids filled with sleep. If you think you would catch up on sleep in the night, you are dead wrong, as come night another party will up in full swing.
4. They Are Immersed in Epic Shouting Matches and Love Making Sessions
It is the epic shouting matches that lead up to the love making sessions. For you, it means hearing them fight like cats and dogs, and then make up with each other, as they are two animals in heat. In both instances, it is advised to wear earplugs or listen to music to block out the yells and the awkwardness that follows it.
5. They Borrow, Keep it, and then Forget About it
In the beginning, you will happily give your favorite dish, tool, or iron to your neighbor. You do not see a problem in letting them borrow yourself, until you realize after a week or a few months that they did not return it to you. Since you are a Good Samaritan, you will give them the benefit of the doubt, thinking they might have forgotten to give it back.
Naturally, you will go over to their house to remind them, but only to come to your own house with a shock of your life. According to them, they returned to you or even worse, they never borrowed it.
