How to legally annoy your neighbor

108 posts in this topic

HI, I am so glad I found this article.. I thought I'm the only one having annoying German neighbor. I read all the replies and I thought some of the ideas were hilerious LOL like the MOTION DETECTING FARTING SPEAKER. HAHA I want to get one. Well I wanted to share my story too..

I live on the bottom floor of a 3 floor apartment house. The neighbor above me is maybe 60 y/o always cranky b*tch living with his maybe 40 y/o fat ass son. On the top floor lives a lady by herself, who was nice in the beggining but then they were both playing on the same team. When I moved in with my husband we were always nice saying hello and everything and trying not to be too loud. She started off with telling me where should we park our car while the landlord told me we can park anywhere there is a free spot. And to be nice I didn't park in "HER SPOT" but then she started telling me where should I put my stuff in the basement and again landlord said wherever there is free room so I did that and she MOVED MY OLD furniture where she decided is MY AREA. I got pissed off she was moving my stuff without letting me know but i let it go. Then she moved her chairs in our GRILL AREA but i was like whatever and I just moved our grill close to our backyard door (She barely uses the backyard but she will still put the chairs out in the spring/summer time) Then she moved Large Plants next to my grill in a way that it could catch on fire.. I got so pissed that I stopped picking after my dog in the backyard so she puts the shit in my backyard door now.. I only live here for a year and my husband is mostly gone, but I've had it with her.. I don't know what to do so I think I should just have fun with it and annoy her in some legal way. The landlord doesnt care at all. He was nice in the beggining because I was getting him the American goods whenever he asked me but then I stopped and he's on their side now.. How do I deal with her? Any ideas are welcome! Thanks

 

PS I was thinking of carving something funny on a pumpkin lol

There's an unlimited number of ways to annoy someone but unfortunately most are illegal or leave a link back to you.

The secret is to make the Freezing weather work for you!

Water is great fun and leaves no evidence.

some ideas for you.

Spray his car wheels so they are stuck when he goes to work.

ditto windscreen wipers.

If he covers it water under his tarpaulin ---- makes great glue

oh dear has snow frozen in his exhaust pipe?

can he not open his filler cap when he is low on petrol?

 

put a polite and friendly note in the middle of his windscreen (making sure it is wet.)

water in his front door lock

around the door frame

water under the bin to glue it to the ground.

freeze shut the cat flap if the cat can't get out it has to go somewhere.

freeze the gate shut

dog turd on door step with water added to ensure well stuck.

 

---It was not me, it was the weather!---- :ph34r:

 

Its amazing how much fun you can have with a spray bottle and a twisted mind B)

Here are some real annoying things.

 

Above all keep your sense of humor. Bottom line – if you're stuck in an apartment or condo invest in some good quality earplugs & wireless headphones. In many cases, there will be retaliation if you complain. If you think something's being done intentionally, test it, to find out if it is. It's usually pretty easy to outsmart ignorance. There really are mature, kind, and considerate people in this world, I just haven't found that many. Yet.

 

I've lived in a University of California town and in the same apartment complex for fourteen years. Sleep deprivation is no laughing matter and I found this forum because I forgot to put in my earplugs last night. I had to laugh at some of the posts here, as I empathize with just about every one. During the last year and a half I've dealt with the following:

1. This is probably one of the more annoying noises of a neighbor I've had to overcome. It's been happening about four months now. The upstairs neighbor has (along with a piano that's practiced daily) a pipe framed futon bed -- the bigger the pipes the noisier, I would guess. The pipes are hollow and the bed is against the wall. The hollow pipes really put out some noise and couple this with bumping them in just the right position to hit the wood framing behind the drywall... the wood inside the wall acts much like the bridge of a guitar – increasing the decibels as the sound travels through the wood.

2. Need some shelves? ...Get a stack of wood; shelf-like flat pieces work best. The pieces are held together and then the whole stack dropped on a hard floor. When skillfully done, this is so loud it sounds like firecrackers going off. It must take practice to get the technique just right. My next door neighbor, whose kitchen is adjacent to mine and who also just happens to be the night manager at the moment, has this practice (along with 3 & 4 below) down to a science. Think management wants to upgrade my unit and wants me to move? Hmm... I now very childishly have a stack of wood in my kitchen if that starts up again.

3. Get together with a friend or roommate for this one! Turn off all the lights in your apartment. Leave your apartment at all hours and 'forget' your key. You'll need to pound loudly on the door to 'wake up' your friend or roommate, so you can get back in.

4. Here's another annoying one if you have kitchen cupboards, replace the magnets with tongs. Tighten the tongs so the cupboard doors have to be slammed in order to shut. Then, cook whenever it's quiet. This went on for several months next door but has recently stopped. I still have my childish stack of wood just in case.

To thine enemy's child give a trumpet.

 

I bought a (badly out of tune) flugelhorn and practised diligently several times a day. Sounded truly awful at the beginning and I know it really bugged my loud neighbours.

I was searching the threads to find when it is appropriate to leave small gifts for neighbors, when I came across this thread. Lots of interesting ideas here. This will be a good reference if one of my neighbors decide to do other annoying things besides stealing my washing detergent.

it takes two to tango. it sounds like you would rather get in a childish fight with your neighbour than resolve your issue like an adult... it's nice to bitch and moan once in a while, but it's only a bit of washing powder. just get over it...

invite your neighbour over for a beer and you'll probably find that he's not such a bad guy.

I think Emo Phillips said it best:

I was getting in line at the store and I had only one item, and there was a woman in front of me with a huge cartload of items. I asked her if I could go first, and she said you have to wait your turn, wnaa, wnaa, wnaa…

So I considered. Do I resolve this issue like an adult, using calm good reason, or do I waste an hour of my life being childish.

And I thought—well, I’m in no hurry…

 

(had her crying big time...I remember using the phrase 'all the Viagra in the world wouldn't...')

 

But try giving the proven wanker of a neighbor a big wet kiss anyway.
