When new neighbors move in its only human to try and be civil and kind to them, but sometimes they can take advantage of you. There are some things that neighbors do that can just annoy and infuriate you, yet you may struggle to do anything about it due to being nervous, or just not wanting to have that awkward conversation.
1. Loud Music
For most people getting to sleep means dead silence, and the sound of music can be incredibly irritating. Usually its the bass notes which come through the floors and walls and are apparent even if the music isn’t very loud. The more you try to not pay attention to it, the worst it gets. Some advice for this (if you feel too awkward to go tell them to turn it down) can be to try some white noise, like music, or even a loud fan to drift off to sleep.
2. Walking Around Naked
For some people clothing in their own home is optional. The freedom of nudity feels fantastic them, and they are not ashamed of what they harbor underneath their clothes. Yet, others might think differently. Some neighbors walk around naked without a thought of putting shades up, letting the whole world in on the show. This could be a positive for those peeping toms out there, but it kinda like a nude beach, most people just are not pretty to look at naked.
As Jerry said, “There’s good naked and bad naked.”
Here’s another noise one. The dog that just will not stop barking. It’s always late at night when they decide to do this. The barking is pretty continuous, but at some points there is a pause when you think that they might stop and when you finally relax and begin to drift off to sleep, it begins again.
Many sitcoms have done this but again everything relates to Seinfeld. As Elaine has to deal with a barking dog outside her apartment she does what many might imagine themselves doing.
4. Arguments That Can be Overheard
Your there minding your own business watching TV and trying to unwind after your day, then suddenly you hear some yelling. You may try to focus on the TV but its hard to do as he can hear exactly what the couple next store is arguing about. Dishes may be thrown and broken and the fights are just ridiculous sometimes. But you can’t help but listen to these arguments.
Maybe it would be best to bang on the wall and tell them to get a divorce already, because no matter how much they fight they just won’t end it.
Will Ferrell displays this perfectly.
5. Nosey Neighbors
You just wanna come outside and get your mail, you’re not in the mood for meaningless chit-chit. Yet, some people just want to talk to you, and you don’t wanna be a jerk cause when your on vacation and your house is on fire you want that neighbor to just shrug and say “Let it burn.” So you gotta be friendly, but its annoying. Unless you know your neighbor personally the best bet is to just leave them alone as most people just do not give a crap and don’t wanna have mindless small talk.
“Nice weather we’re having eh?”
“I see you just got back from the market.”
“I just stopped by for some sugar…my lord!”
