Just yesterday I spotted some kids from a neighbouring street have been using the swimming pool in our un-gated complex. I live in a townhouse and everyone in this complex pays certain amount of body corporate fee (currently $700/quarter) for maintenance (cutting grass, maintaining a swimming pool and paying our building insurance). Because our complex is un-gated so basically everyone can come and go.
I do not in particular like those kids because first of all they don't live here and certainly don't pay body corp fee therefore they shouldn't be allowed to use our pool.
Secondly, earlier this year my neighbour (who lives in the complex) was bitten by a dog that belongs to those kids' family and worse of all they had really bad attitude (refuse to apologise, refuse to restrain their dog - sometime I still see their dog wondering around the street, and refuse to pay any medical bills - my neighbour had to see a doctor in case the bite is deep enough, luckily it was all good).
Thirdly I don't like those kids using our pool because their mum looks like those classic people living on Centrelink (I noticed this when I accompanied my neighbour to negotiate with them when she was bitten by their dog).
I'm usually a easy-going person and wouldn't care too much if it was some other kids using our free pool, but feel uncomfortable because of above 3 reasons. Am I being too harsh?
Edit: I have no problem with people on Centrelink, but those on Centrelink and cannot teach their kids basic rules get on my nerve.
Edit: Thanks everyone who commented on this topic. To clarify, our complex is un-gated; the pool is gated but any ten-year old will be tall enough to open the pool gate. There are pool rules displayed and stating: children under 13 years old must be accompanied by an adult who lives in this complex.
What should I do when outsiders of the complex are using our swimming pool?
