Most of us have had our fair share of bad neighbors. Whether it's the couple that has loud screaming matches every night or a nosy kid who keeps trying to peek in your windows, neighbors can be a real pain. But these people take the whole "bad neighbor" thing to a completely new level. Check out these horrible neighbors and be very, very glad they don't live next door to you.
Garden Of Thrones
So, upcycling is a really cool thing to do. That's where you take objects that would normally be thrown away and use them for a new purpose. Wait, let’s clarify that upcycling is usually cool. We have to draw the line here, though, with this yard filled with old toilets.
This whole concept of a lawn covered in toilets is just too much to subject your neighbors to. No one wants to see that as they’re pulling into their driveway after a long day at work. Keep the toilets where they belong, please: in the bathroom.
Be Careful What You Wish For, Bob
Bob has apparently been nagging his neighbor about painting their fence. We're not sure why the fence color is any of Bob’s business, but Bob must think he has a say over whatever his neighbors do to their homes and property.
We love the response to Bob. They painted the fence alright, just not the way he probably wanted them to. "Look Bob, I’ve painted my fence :)" is the perfect comeback for a neighbor who’s tired of being nagged.
When The Moon Hits Your Eye...
This is one we haven't seen before – a person getting mooned by a shrub. Looks like maybe he’ll be building a taller fence after this incident. Wonder how long it took the gardening expert to pull this stunt off and turn a bush into an offensive sculpture?
The best part is that the neighbor looks legitimately angry AT the shrub, as if it’s the one at fault here. Don’t blame the shrub, man, he’s just the messenger.
… as in ALL the holidays. At first glance, most people would probably assume it was Halloween, because of all the life-sized skeletons decorating the yard. But wait one minute. There are also a bunch of Fourth of July elements going on here… a wreath on the door and the skeletons' hats and ties.
So do all these crazy decorations stay up year-round then? That’s a pretty tacky and confusing thing to do to your neighbors. Pick a holiday and stick with it, please.
When Fights Between Neighbors Get Really Bad
There's an expression that says "fences make good neighbors." That saying definitely does not fit the situation here. According to the photo caption, “these neighbors were fighting, so one put up a fence on the other’s driveway because it’s technically his property.”
Ouch, that’s low. Now the man’s neighbor can’t even get his car up to his house unless he drives in the yard? All over a silly fight? He needs to move out of here like yesterday.
So Many Questions
Now here's a redneck neighbor who might be sinking your property value with his bizarre antics, but at least it looks like he could be kind of fun to hang out with every now and then. Looking at this photo left us with more than a few questions, though.
What is he doing up there? Is the ground level just not good enough for him? And he has a crutch up there with him – meaning how in the heck did he even get up onto the roof? This one is a real head-scratcher.
Dumbo, Is That You?
We're trying to think of any reasonable explanation for this situation. How did a life-sized elephant sculpture end up on its back in the middle of this neighbor’s driveway? Maybe they’re just those kinds of people who never finish a project.
Like, maybe they decided they wanted a realistic looking elephant in the backyard but when they realized they couldn’t get it through the front door they just abandoned it there. And now the whole neighborhood has to see it every time they pass by this house.
You can tell by looking at this man that he thinks he has it all figured out. He's totally beat the whole "mowing the lawn" game by hooking his lawnmower up to the back of his scooter. But there are a few problems with his genius idea.
First, this would probably take him twice as long as it would just pushing the dang mower around like a normal person. And second, now his neighbors have to hear TWO loud sounds when he decides to cut the grass: the lawnmower AND the scooter. What a selfish guy.
Shoveling snow is a grueling task and one that people dread every winter. This guy is being a responsible homeowner and braving the cold in order to get his yard clear of the white stuff. But what's he doing there? Oh, he’s dumping it right into his next-door neighbor’s yard. Real nice.
We’re glad someone caught this snow jerk in the act. Now his neighbors know why it always seems like their house got more snow than everyone else in the area.
Drunk Or Crazy?
Someone in a discussion forum was talking about this photo and wondered whether the homeowners were drunk or crazy. We're guessing a little bit of both. The whole scene is nuts: a gigantic pink elephant drinking a martini, surrounded by a ton of little pink plastic flamingoes.
Yep, drunk and crazy is probably the answer. Let’s hope they’re at least friendly toward their neighbors after forcing them to look at this bizarre exhibit day after day.
What A Great Idea
This person clearly wanted to add some security to their sprawling suburban home. So they did what lots of people do when they want more privacy and security: they added a gate (complete with a monogram—classy!).
They missed a really key element to the whole gate concept, though. You kind of need a wall or something else to stop people from just walking or driving around the little gate. This is ridiculous and just makes these people look like unneighborly jerks. Look at their grass, there are tired tracks. Fail.
Only One Person Is Invited To This House
This lousy neighbor wanted to avoid visitors so badly that he built his house upside down. We don't even see a way to get into the place. Which probably explains why he also hung a lifesized replica of Spider-Man climbing up the side of the wall.
Maybe we’re misinterpreting it, but this is the message we’re getting: "Don’t even bother trying to visit. Unless you’re Spider-Man you’re never getting in anyway."
Stealing The Show?
This holiday arrangement leaves us wondering who the real jerk is. Is it the house that went overboard with the garish lighting that probably makes it hard to sleep at night without blackout curtains?
Or is it the people who put up only one decoration; a lighted arrow pointing to the brightly festooned house next door? We suppose the answer depends on whether the arrow is just meant to say a friendly "ditto" to the neighbor's decorations or if it’s meant to steal from the glory of the other house. We might never know the real answer. And we guess we can live with that.
These guys just might take the top prize for people who actually endanger their neighbors with their bone-headed behavior. Rather than simply carrying the unwanted sofa down the steps (presumably the same way it got up there in the first place), they decided to just toss it over the third-floor balcony railing.
We sure hope they looked around carefully before giving the couch the old heave-ho, because a falling object like that could seriously hurt or even kill someone. Bad neighbors, indeed.
What a nice welcome to this neighbor's home: a mean-looking donkey shaped mailbox where the opening is his… rear end. It’s not quite clear whether the owner of this mailbox means it as a joke or if it’s really a warning that there’s a crotchety old grump living here.
Either way, we bet the mailman doesn’t really treasure having to stop at this house every day and opening up the donkey’s keister.
Not Cool. Not Cool At All
This unfortunate story was shared to Reddit by a user named Dreampopper, who explained the situation. "My neighbor owed me $288.66 for my vet bills after his Great Dane attacked my Golden. This is how he paid me, one day before I was going to take him to small claims court."
We can't even believe the nerve of this guy. It's bad enough that the Redditor's precious dog was hurt, but to have his neighbor pull such a jerk move in response is just too much. We hope Dreampopper and his Golden were able to move away after this incident.
Just Some Good Old Neighborly Fun
OK, we WANT to live next door to these zany neighbors. What could be more fun than waking up to some lol-worthy pranks every now and then? In this case, the tricksters put a lifesize dinosaur (a velociraptor, to be exact) right outside their neighbor's window in the middle of the night.
Imagine the fright this homeowner got when they first opened their blinds to welcome the daylight inside. Hopefully, it didn’t take long for them to realize that it was a fake and that Jurassic Park hadn’t come true overnight.
Firefighters vs. Cops
Now, here's a completely different neighbor setup. This hilarious photo was posted to Imgur with the caption, "Our fire station is next door to the Police department. Pranks ensue." In this case the firefighters have set up a huge box trap with the words “free donuts” and an arrow pointing down.
It’s kind of hard to tell what the cop in the photo is thinking about the trick. We’d love to see the prank that the police came with in response to this one!
The Gall To Pin This Here
Imagine being so fed up with your upstairs neighbor but so afraid of their reaction you make a sign like this for them to see.
Honestly I hope they're up there tap-dancing otherwise this is just rude to comment on.
"I put up a fence to keep my thieving and incredibly nosy neighbor out. He then puts up a camera so that he can look in"
This is just beyond creepy and horrible behavior. Like what exactly is this person's problem that they are so obsessed with watching their neighbor.
"You Kids Get Off My Lawn!"
We're willing to bet that the person who made this kid-eating snowman is the neighborhood crank. You know the type. It's usually an older man who shakes his fist as he’s yelling at passing children to "get off his lawn!"
You just have to wonder why he’s so concerned about protecting his yard. It doesn’t exactly look nice here, just a patch of dead grass and filthy brown snow. But at least the kids will stay away now that the snowman is threatening to eat them.
The Rock Is Always Watching...
How's this for an unfriendly look? This unsocial neighbor put a cardboard cutout of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson right by their front door, presumably to frighten people out of paying a friendly visit.
Then again, The Rock is probably a pretty good theft deterrent... if this community is experiencing a bunch of crimes then you really can't blame the person who lives here for trying to keep their stuff safe.
If this wasn't taken on Halloween or some other appropriate holiday, then this photo is downright disturbing. Why is a fully-grown man dressed as a cat-devil (or whatever he’s supposed to be) and crouching down on the sidewalk while waving to his across the street neighbor?
We can only imagine that this is his usual behavior and that the fed-up neighbor couldn’t take any more of it. Naturally, they snapped his photo and posted it online as their response to his bizarre antics.
One, Two, Freddy's Coming For You
The person who stays in this bedroom must have really, really done something awful to their neighbor. Putting a life-size cutout of Freddy Krueger in someone's window, where they’re going to be startled to death next time they open the curtains, is a pretty serious act of revenge.
We just hope that when this homeowner opened the curtains they didn’t pass out or have a heart attack or something. Maybe they were even able to laugh it off. Eventually.
Which Came First?
We can't figure out just what the heck is going on here. Were some neighbors upset by this crazy, but kind of cool, display of plastic pink flamingos and called the police because of it?
Or did the neighbors call the police for some unrelated reason and these homeowners put the army of flamingos out as a warning? Like, "you’d better watch out or my lawn ornaments are coming to get you?" Either way, we kinda like this look.
Keeping Up With The Joneses
This is one of those neighbors who just can't stand that he doesn't have nice stuff like the people next door. When they get a new car, he does too. New jacuzzi? You can bet he's going to try and top that.
In this case, the guy just went into his bathroom, disconnected the bathtub, and dragged it right out into the backyard. It looks like he made himself a table out of beer cases with a board on top before getting in to revel in all his tub's impressive glory.
Bad Dog Or Weird Grandson?
This neighbor is over whoever is allowing their dog to defecate on their lawn. It must have really gotten out of hand because they are willing to use a family member to get even.
The sign reads: "We have video. We know where you live. If you don't pick up after your dog, we'll send our grandson to poop on your lawn." Bad dog or weird grandson? We're not sure who is worse here, the neighbor who put up the sign or the neighbor who let their dog poop so much on the lawn that it lead to this point.
This Neighbor Isn't Happy With Their HOA
This homeowner knew they would have to deal with a homeowner's association (HOA) when they bought their home but that doesn't mean they are always happy with the organization. This piece of fencing was purposefully placed to send a strong message.
A user on Reddit posted the following message: "The HOA in my friend's neighborhood recently threatened her neighbors with a fine if they didn’t hide their trash cans, even though they’ve been in the same spot for over a decade. This is their solution." The bad neighbor's, in this case, are the people supporting the HOA.
This Guy Doesn't Like Balls In His Yard.
Reddit user Ham9294 shared this photo and wrote: "Whenever a ball goes into my neighbor's yard, he puts them in his tree so no one can get them back." It's bad enough that they're grumpy and hate children having fun, it's even worse that they display the balls just out of the reach of neighborhood kids.
We're a bit torn on this one. Is this neighbor just awful or have they started to teach children in their neighborhood how to deal with disappointment later in life? We think they're just a huge jerk.
This Christmas Display Was Built On Purpose
We would love to say that a horrible storm came through and destroyed a well thought out Christmas display but that's not the case. This photo was shared on Reddit where it was determined that the display was built to look like exactly as it stands in the picture.
We don't know if the neighbor has a sick sense of humor, hates their neighbors, or both. In any case, this isn't the type of jolly Christmas display most neighbors would want to stare at every day leading up to December 25.
The Toilet Driveway
Imagine living next to the neighbor who thought using toilets to line their driveway was a brilliant idea.
This might actually be a worse idea than the toilet garden we wrote about earlier. Maybe the owner of this home is an artist who was making some type of point about society. The bigger possibility is that they are just the worst and their neighbors avoid them at every turn possible.
Live In The Left Side While Fending Off Hauntings On The Right
When you live in a duplex that isn't controlled by a home owners association you always run the risk that something like this will happen. Imagine taking care of your home only to walk outside every day and see the neighbor's side of the home.
If the person on the left side of the property wants to sell their home we have a sad feeling they aren't going to receive market value for their well kept part of the property.
This Lazy Neighbor Just Keeps Piling Up Their Junk
It's great that this neighbor decided to upgrade their deteriorating swimming pool. Sadly, they didn't spend the 30 minutes it would have required to take down the disgusting old above ground pool.
If your neighbor is this lazy there's a very good chance you'll never see the grass on their lawn because of all the junk they've left lying around for years. Your best option is just to sell your house, pack up, and leave.
How does the expression go? Bad fences make bad neighbors? If so, the sign on this fence is definitely making a good case. "This fence was installed to prevent my neighbor from destroying my plants!"
We can only imagine what was going on that led to such a strongly-worded sign. Was the neighbor intentionally destroying the plants? Was it just an accident (like maybe their dog went to the bathroom on them once)? Whatever the reason, these neighbors are not happy to live next to each other. Sad.
That's A Low Blow
Apartment living definitely has its perks (no yard work!) but it also comes with its fair share of problems. Sound issues are a common thing that neighbors fight over in apartment communities.
Even so, is it really OK to criticize your neighbor's singing voice? This seems like a low blow to us. The singer in question must really belt out the tunes loudly if it attracted such a negative response from next door.
We're All People Here
Sometimes, all you need is a non-threatening note in order to get your point across. The person that wrote this note just thought they'd let this driver know that they were seriously inconvenienced by their park job.
We’re going to assume that this note was written somewhere outside of the United States. This is so, since most people in America would most likely have replaced the word "bloody" with a much more vulgar word.
This person must have parked their car extremely poorly and left it for a long time. At least long enough for someone to type this letter up and even add a picture. It's probably good that they do this because the note would be a lot less effective if the dog was a really poorly drawn dog.
You must know how bad you messed up if somebody put in the effort to go onto their computer and print something out.
Even Grumpy Cat Is Mad At You
This person decided to put their artistic skills to use in order to let this person know how mad they are. While they might think that they really got their point across, this note might make most people crack a smile for its originality, and who doesn't like Grumpy Cat?
If I found this on my windshield I might even end up framing it and putting in on the wall because it’s just that funny.
Always Be Prepared
Once again, it looks like there's another person that carries around parking notes like business cards. Chances are, they have a variety of different cards for a number of different situations. Nobody is this prepared to get annoyed at people.
That being said, we appreciate the time and effort that went into this note with the different fonts and colors being used. All we know is that we would never want to get on this person’s bad side.
All That Work For Nothing
If you live in a place where you have to shovel snow in order to park, taking a spot that was shoveled by someone else is a big mistake. Nobody wants to shovel snow. It's hard work being so cold and wet when all you want to do is go inside.
Coming home to see someone riding on the coattails would be nothing short of infuriating. However, chances are, this person knew what they were doing wrong, they just chose to do it anyway.
Drawing The Line
This person's park job is truly amazing. They must have been intoxicated or something because it’s unbelievable that someone really cares this little. The car is literally straddling two parking spots so they’re not just inconveniencing one but two people.
Luckily, it looks like someone had some chalk on hand a decided to draw a little diagram from the driver. Now, the next time this lunatic needs to park, they have their own personal spot just for them.
Oh Jack, No
Hitting someone's car and not leaving your information is way worse than someone that takes up two parking spots, or even ten for that matter. It’s your duty as a driver to own up for your mistakes and suffer the consequences.
While everyone thought that Jack was doing the wrong thing, he was really just covering for himself. Seeing this on your windshield would ruin anyone’s best days. Jack will get what he deserves soon enough.
That must be quite frustrating to come home and not be able to pull into your own driveway. Clearly, it was annoying enough to this person that they took the time to draw out a diagram and step-by-step instructions about how to park along the curb.
They even threw in a little pro tip on how to take a shower, just in case the person didn't know how to properly do that either.
Not The Potato Clan!
This person went so far as to even make some potato sculptures to show how annoyed they are. This is definitely a unique note to let this person know that they did something wrong.
We feel that it must have been pretty effective because who would want to do this again if the person was actually nice about their complaint? Then again, it might be interesting to see what they mean when they threaten to "bring out the produce."
Movie References For The Win
If you were unaware, this note is referencing the comedy movie Office Space, with this particular scene becoming a viral meme on the Internet. Most people would probably get the reference, but it would sure be confusing if the person that parked their car didn't.
Even though it’s just a stick figure drawing, we have to commend the artist for their work — it’s pretty impressive and definitely gets the point across. We wonder if they reference movies on all the notes they leave people.
Laying It All Out
This annoyed neighbor laid out the whole situation for this person who apparently doesn't know how to park a car. There is very little animosity in the note and instead explains exactly what the situation is and how it needs to be fixed.
This person seems pretty selfless and is more concerned with the person has to park next to them than themselves. Also, their illustration is impressively detailed, hopefully enough so the person doesn’t do it again.
When you're in a tight situation like this person, there’s no time to find somewhere to park or put quarters into a machine, you’re in a race against time. Your best bet is to just write a note real quick and pray that you don’t get a ticket.
If a police officer ended up giving them a ticket that’s a cold move on their part. Since when is it a crime to run to the bathroom for fear of soiling yourself?
The Recognition They Deserve
There's nothing quite as rewarding as giving someone a certificate of congratulations for being terrible at something. Although the note is meant to be ironic, it’s not unreasonable to think that some people might be proud of themselves for achieving this level of success for pissing people off.
If their car has been there for more than a month, chances are they truly don’t care who they are inconveniencing and might take this certificate as a compliment.
Sometimes a windshield note can be just as offensive as the parking job it's addressing. This person wasn’t impressed by someone’s parking job, and compared them to Stevie Wonder. Wonder might be blind, we’d bet even he could park better than this person.
Still, it takes a pretty insensitive person to come up with this note. We get the message they’re trying to send, but don’t they know it’s 2018, not 1998? Would call this tasteless or hilarious?
That's A Paddlin’
We love this throwback to a classic Simpsons joke. Speaking of growing up, the old man just remarked about how everything he did resulted in a "paddlin'" Now this poor driver has been put on notice.
It's not nice to park in someone else’s spot. They’re marked for a reason. Let this be a hilarious lesson to anyone who has ever committed this heinous crime. For the sake of the sanity of those around you, please don’t.
Another Natural Disaster
This person's parking is reminiscent of a natural disaster. If we got this card in our car, we’d be laughing and horrified all at the same time! At this point, you can no longer say "too soon" to Katrina jokes.
They’re insensitive for sure, but so are most things in this world if you want to analyze it. Let’s just hope this person begins parking better. Eventually it will be too soon and all the laughs will stop.
Take The Bus
Really, more people should be willing to take public transportation anyways. This card makes an interesting proposal about people who are incompetent parkers. Maybe they should be forced to take public transportation. We can't say we disagree.
Also, where can we buy a set of these cards ourselves? This a great passive-aggressive way to let someone know they need to be more considerate. We’d love to be passive-aggressive with a set ourselves. Would you use these?
That Smiley Face Though
If there was an award for the most passive aggressive individual on the planet it would very, very likely be the writer of this note. If you're trying to up the level of pettiness in your life, listen up.
The writer starts their argument with a fact — the owner of the vehicle parked in his or her parking spot. All is fine and dandy until the writer segues into the light threat that they’ve recorded the driver’s license plate. Then things take a turn for the worse as they detail what is in store if this happens again (hint: lots and lots of Vaseline). Signing off with a smiley face is the cherry on top of the passive aggressive cake.
That's harsh. We would never wish for someone to be unborn. Then again, we’re not passive-aggressive people, we just love laughing with them. How badly did this car park though? How come none of these pictures shows the actual parking job?
Well, some of them do. The rest we’re left to use our imagination to figure out how someone felt so slighted they needed to do something about it. We’ve only ever dreamed of doing the things some of the upset neighbors have!
An Afternoon Snack
Although we can't fully decipher what the second note says, it’s safe to say that the one written in peanut butter definitely sends a message. We wonder what this person did in order to deserve two separate notes and also how they drove their car with all of that peanut butter blocking their view.
The people that came up with this diabolical idea might have wanted to think it through because the car is probably going to be there longer now that the driver has to clean it off before they can drive.
They Paid The Price
If this note doesn't want to make you be more careful how you park your car, then nothing will. Another driver accidentally hit their car and ended up scratching it too while they were trying to make it better.
However, they did not leave their information because apparently the other driver had taken up two spaces when he parked. This is by far one of the most passive aggressive notes that we’ve seen yet and we’d even go so far as to say it’s way over the line.
Save It For The Track
Apparently, this person's neighbor likes to rev their engine early in the morning, waking up the entire morning in the process. We’re not sure if they’re trying to be cool or if they think that it will warm up their engine or interior of the car.
What we are sure of is that the whole neighborhood is not happy with this person, and for good reason. At the end of the day, it looks like the people that wrote this note just want to keep them in the racing game.
Passing The Buck
Wow, this person was not playing around when they wrote this letter. We're not sure why they didn’t just find another parking spot, but that’s none of our business. While the parked person’s car might have received some damage it might be best to just leave it alone rather than give this person a call.
Not only will they make you pay for all of the damage but they will probably do something a lot worse to you based on their attitude.
You know you need to go back to parking school when Optimus Prime disapproves of your skills. As a big rig turned robot fighting for humans, he sees this person as more a danger than Megatron.
Hopefully, this person realizes how much they upset Optimus Prime and have never parked poorly since. The last thing anyone wants is for the entire team of Autobots to have to come back and dispense some parking justice. Actually, we'd pay to see that movie.
This note is fully justified until the end. The person has been very understanding with this unknown car. Did you know that by law a car can't be parked in the same spot for 72 hours?
Don’t quote us on that, but this person is more than in the right to let the rude parker know. Especially when the person doesn’t even live in the same neighborhood. Now, thanks to some passive-aggressive underlining, this person will never come back.
Just The Basics
One of the first things everyone learns as a young driver is how to park. It's one of the most simple and basic skills you need to master to drive. This person needs to back to school.
Maybe they didn’t see that they were blocking a driveway. Maybe it was too dark. Maybe they didn’t care. Let’s start a GoFundMe to send them back to school so they can get the education they are sorely lacking.
Crash And Burn
Parking spaces are marked for a reason. If you choose to take two spaces when all you need is one, you deserve all the bad things coming your way. Whoever took up multiple spaces has karma coming.
We imagine the person who wrote this note has bad luck trying to park. You'd be amazed how many people ignore the parking space lines. The person who wrote this note is no longer surprised. They have decided to take action, and we thank them for that.
