Nosy neighbours

Have you got 'em - how do you cope?

Any funny experiences?

 

So .... today - i've been renovating our garage and had the garage door half open.

I've been painting, pointing with cement, and knocking merry hell out of our walls ... just chipping away the excess cement from a wall built by my Dad and Uncle Alan (both now sadly gone) cos it's a bit if a mess and i'm tidying it up.

 

Now - we often take our neighbours wheelie bin down her drive after they've been emptied and sometimes she brings ours down too - rarely however as she's frail.

Today as i was in our garage and i heard a wheelie bin being brought down - i thought it was next door's bin

It was ours as i saw our neighbour walking away up our drive way (without saying a word)

But when i double checked she had brought our bin right to our door - lifted it up onto our path and manoeuvred it around to face the opposite way.

She has never done this - ever

So i can only assume she's used our wheelie bin as a cover to spy on me!!!

Yep - spy on me.

Now if i had crept into her garden and peered though her window to see what she'd been doing she could quite rightly call the cops. 

 

I'm not happy that she's blatantly been watching me behind my back. It's creepy and downright wrong. Cheeky bugger!!

Awwww you probably provided her with the only interesting thing that happened to her all day 

I hear you Renton! When we moved into our house we were warned by our next door neighbor, who is fantastic, about the street mafia. They report people who park their cars slightly over onto the pavement, they report all sorts in fact.

We were told they go through your rubbish to see what you are throwing away and I didn’t believe it. The neighbor said he takes any alcohol bottles and throws them away elsewhere because they were gossiping about his drinking habits..we had recycling out (closed bin with a lid)  and one of them made a snarky comment to my husband that he should join AA! Then I threw away an old cracked cat litter tray again closed bin and one called me and asked why I was throwing it away!!! They have even removed things from our can and put them on our front step because they told us we could still use them! 

We feel like burning BOLLOCKS into the lawn!

I have just come across these two explanations online...

Theft is the dishonest appropriation of property belonging to another, with theintention of permanently depriving the other of it. ... Until they have thrown it away, it still belongs to them and you can steal if you take it without their permission.16 Sep 2017

 

Technically it is theft if you take something from a bin or skip, though whether it is illegal depends on the motivation of the person taking it, and whether or not the property has a rightful owner.21 Mar 2018

Not a clue there Moonie - the law's an ass (apparently)

Hasn't stuff in a skip been thrown away - so how can it be theft?

 

Anyhoo - i was just looking out of the window to check the weather when creepy old spy next door was driving her car away

Will she think i've turned super spy and returning the favour?

Watch this space   

Hi Sainty 

I actually heard that on one of these reclamation programmes. They said you should never take anything from out of a skip outside a property without getting permission first.

That's outrageous Roxan!  I'd be livid if I had such liberty taking, sanctimonious idiots on my street.  You must be so tempted to give them a piece of your mind.  I think I would!

I have said things but it just bounces off them. They are just unbelievable! My husband has told them to go f*** themselves on more than one occasion! 

Intelligent people have open minds willing to change opinions when new information comes to light. These people are full on morons!
