I feel like I am becoming more and more intolerant and my neighbors are really starting to annoy me.
They are not my direct neighbors, they live across the street from me
Some of the things they are doing:
Leaving green bins in front of my property for 3 weeks (council land)
Never put bins out in front of their own property always in front of mine.
Allow their dog to poo in front of my house (council land)
Basketball ring sitting in front of my property indefinitely (council land)
Allow their children to walk and play in my front yard
Park in front of my house (this one is less irritating, but its still strange when they have space in front of their own house)
Put their rubbish in my bin
Is this acceptable behaviour? Do you think they are being malicious or just entitled and lacking empathy. Am I making too big a deal over over what you would consider non issues?
Should I escalate the situation? Try and forget about it? Drink more? Build a front fence? Any advice is appreciated
I would like to avoid direct confrontation if possible as I anger quickly
I have never done anything to these people I am a quiet and respectful person who likes to keep to themselves.
Why post on Ozb? I want differing opinions from all walks of life. I believe that these forums have a significantly different demographic to mine.
I returned their bins and hoop
I have spoken to them.
They have agreed to not put the bins in front of my house but that the council told them to do it
They said they will remove the hoop but the kids are just trying to have fun (apparently I'm trying to ruin the kids fun)
I said I didn't care if they used the hoop but to store it on their property
They said they didn't realise the bin had been there for 3 weeks (3ullsht).
He also told me that this was all part of living in a neighbourhood (This agitated me)..
and that he wouldn't care if I put my bins in front of his house
But they have agreed to stop
So now I will wait and see if there is retaliation before I escalate further
(I still want to keep the council out of things unless absolutely necessary)
