When you create yourself a home, you’re not just creating a roof over your head, you’re making yourself a refuge, a place where you can unwind and find peace. However, sometimes you get a house that comes with something you didn’t bank on, like an annoying neighbor.
Sometimes annoying neighbors can turn to Karens or worse, and in those cases, it might be best to get professional help. But when it’s just an overly friendly neighbor who you’re just trying not to chat with, other techniques can be useful. Redditors seem to think fighting crazy with crazy is the best way.
This became clear when a woman took to the platform requesting advice on how to avoid her creepy neighbor. The guy is much older than her and already has a tumultuous reputation—think, the creepy old neighbor from Home Alone before he redeemed himself. He’s constantly popping his head over her fence to start chitchatting with her when it’s obvious she is not in the mood. She just tried to handle it as politely as she could, but it’s just getting too annoying now. She wants to get a new, more private, fence put in, but she needs to get permission from him so she can have some workers on his land. So, she came to Reddit for help and boy did they deliver.
There are obviously more helpful comments explaining fencing, property line, etc. But the most hilarious comments are the ones helping her fight crazy with crazy. Basically, these Redditors think the best way to repel an unwanted annoying neighbor is to just start talking crazy to them. We picked out some of the best ones below!
