It’s really important to get along with our neighbors. After all, they are a pretty big part of our day-to-day lives as we see them all the time. However, it turns out that not all neighbors are besties, and some people have had some pretty interesting characters living next door. Here are some hilarious and unusual neighbors who definitely made the hood more interesting.
“My neighbors have a great sense of humor.”
Living so close to other people can be hard sometimes. Some neighbors are pretty cranky and just don’t seem to have a sense of humor. But we’re glad to see this is not always the case – this person’s neighbors are simply hilarious and are probably great people too.
“The neighbors across the street are great.”
Judging by this sign, these neighbors were probably great parents too. They are so nice to their neighbors’ kids that it makes us wish we could live in the neighborhood too. Is there such a thing as being too old to jump in leaf piles?
“My neighbors got into a fight… One’s driveway is in the other’s property.”
This person took pettiness to a whole new level. To annoy their neighbor, they actually took the time to measure the exact perimeter of their property and built a fence around it in the middle of the neighbor’s driveway. We don’t know what they were arguing about, but by the looks of it, it was pretty serious.
“We adjusted our fence so we could hang out together.”
These guys are the perfect example of how good life can be if you get along with your neighbors. Not only do they like each other, they actually became friends and adjusted their fence to be able to enjoy each other’s company.
“Our new neighbor’s welcome mat.”
When someone first moves into a new house, they tend to go around the neighborhood introducing themselves and trying to create a connection with their new neighbors. But not this person. And to be honest, if this is how they behave, we would rather leave too.
“My considerate neighbors.”
Even though these people have two cars and had the right to park in two separate spots, they chose to let other people have the extra space. This just shows how nice and thoughtful some people are. We wish they could be our neighbors instead.
“Voldemort and Barbie are neighbors!”
These two houses show that just because two people live in the same neighborhood, it doesn’t mean they are into the same things. While one of them is clearly a more minimalistic kind of person, the other is more bubbly and colorful. We have to admit we love both styles.
“It is June 6th. My neighbors still have their Christmas tree up…with Christmas ornaments on it.”
While we have to admit that it’s odd having a Christmas tree up in June, we have bigger concerns. For example, why is this person staring into their neighbor’s house? How did they realize the tree was there if not by actively looking at the inside of their home?
“So, apparently my neighbor’s dog doesn’t like fireworks after a Seahawks win.”
This dog might be the biggest Seahawks hater this world has ever seen. Imagine being so upset a team won a game that you destroy your own wall… In all seriousness, though, we hope this dog felt fine after this situation.
“Holy cow! We herd Jonathan is 18 now! Happy birthday.”
These people have probably lived in the same neighborhood for many years and have watched their neighbors’ kids grow up. It must be quite a shock to realize the little kid from next door is now actually a young adult. This is a very cute way to say congratulations.
“My front steps this morning.”
If we came out in the morning and found our front steps looking like this, we’d probably be a little confused. After all, if our neighbor was sweeping the front porch, wouldn’t it take the same amount of effort to sweep all of the snow off? Clearly, they were very focused on one side of the steps.
“How my neighbor parks his truck in front of my driveway.”
Upon first glance, this might just seem like a pick-up truck parked in a suburban neighborhood. But unfortunately, it’s more than that. Yup, that is an actual ladder hanging out of the back of their neighbor’s truck, conveniently blocking the driveway. That’s definitely one way to not make friends.
“How my dad deals with his neighbor.”
This person’s dad has been having some trouble with his neighbor, who insists on checking with the city council whenever anyone does work on their property. Well, one day their dad got tired of it and decided to respond in the most polite way possible, while also calling out his neighbor’s nosy behavior.
“My neighbor really likes the 4th of July.”
Pretty much everyone loves the 4th of July. After all, we all feel patriotic in our hearts and love our country as much as the next person. But apparently, we don’t love the USA quite as much as this person’s neighbor, who is determined to show the whole neighborhood exactly how much.
“My neighbor’s cat got my cat pregnant. Woke up to this.”
This person did a good deed and adopted the neighborhood cat, which soon became pregnant from the next-door neighbor’s cat. Knowing how expensive new kittens are and how much this person already spent on the adoption, their neighbor left a funny and heartwarming surprise on their doorstep.
“Found the perfect solution.”
When this person received a passive-aggressive note from their local homeowners’ association, they could have gotten angry and gotten annoyed at their neighbor for reporting on them. However, they decided to respond in the perfect way, by offering free flowers to the rest of the neighborhood.
“My neighbors don’t have dogs, so they walk their parrots.”
There’s pretty much nothing casual about this scenario, and we don’t blame this person for being a little curious about his neighbors’ habits. We all love our pets and want them to get as much sunlight and fresh air as possible, but this situation is definitely taking it to the next level.
“My neighbor leaves his trash outside his door. Doesn’t throw it out until he overhears complaints.”
We’ve all had neighbors with bad habits, but this takes it to a whole new weird level. Apparently, this guy not only leaves all his trash to pile up outside his door, but he leaves his door slightly open so that he can hear any complaints from the hallway, and only then does he get up and throw the trash.
“My friend’s neighbor knows when to accept defeat.”
Next door neighbors can often get super competitive with each other, especially when it comes to decorating their houses for the holidays. Luckily, that was not the case with this guy’s neighbor, who decided to take the easy way out and admit defeat from the get-go.
“Finally got to meet the new neighbors.”
Sometimes, the weather really brings people together! That was definitely the case in this situation when the wind blew someone’s trampoline into the house next door. Let’s just say it was not the most pleasant way to meet your new neighbors.
“I wasn’t ready for this.”
Normally, when we step outside into our backyard, we don’t expect to see anything too out of the ordinary. Just a patio set, some plants, maybe a pool if we’re lucky. What we don’t expect to see is a giant cactus trespassing on our property.
“My sister just moved to a small town. She came home to this note on her door.”
Oh, dear. If we came home to find this sign on our door, we’d probably move to another community. Because apparently, the whole town has seen this couple in a very up-close and personal way.
“The neighbors’ kid knocked on my door to ask if he could have a banana, then left.”
Ok, this is one adorable neighbor we definitely wouldn’t mind having. When this person opened the door, they were shocked to find a little boy named Carter standing on their doorstep asking for a banana. After getting what he came for, he promptly turned around and went home.
“Neighbor just tried to throw his Christmas tree from the balcony. Not sure what the ideal landing spot should have been.”
Um. We honestly have so many questions for this person. Like, where did you think your tree was going to land? And why would you throw your Christmas tree out the window anyway? These are the kind of things that keep us awake at night.
“Passive-aggressive neighbors at their finest.”
There are two types of people in this world. There are those who are brutally honest and straightforward. And then there are those who are a little more subtle and prefer giving hints rather than saying something to your face. This annoyed building resident definitely falls into the second category.
“My neighbor owed me $288.66 for my vet bills after his Great Dane attacked my Golden Retriever. This is how he paid me.”
Sometimes situations between neighbors get messy, but in this case, it was handled in the most hilarious and petty way possible. When the neighbor’s dog attacked his dog, this person expected to get some compensation. He just didn’t expect to get in the form of a wheelbarrow full of coins.
“I mowed my elderly neighbor’s lawn. The people on the left of her mowed a day after. I guess I didn’t mow right to the property line. I officially hate these people now.”
That patch of grass in between the two lawns is the definition of pettiness and anyone who has had neighbors like this will be able to relate. This person did a good deed by mowing an elderly woman’s lawn, but apparently, her neighbors decided that there was still some grass on “her side.”
“Being neighbors doesn’t make you friends.”
Just because someone is your next-door neighbor, that doesn’t make him your BFF, and this photo is pure evidence of that. When this person’s neighbor decided to redo their front entrance, they made sure to only paint one side, even though it probably would have been easier to just paint the whole thing.
“My neighbor does not like my new truck so I told her I would park it out of sight, I blocked it with a tree. Nailed It.”
When neighbors complain about something, it often leads to a messy situation and sometimes yelling. However, that was not the case with this person, who dealt with his nosy neighbors in a classy and hilarious way.
“So my neighbors got a package.”
Um. If we saw this sitting in our hallway, we would probably consider moving buildings. Or at least floors. Because we really wouldn’t want to know what’s going on in our neighbor’s life, and this suspicious-looking package is just a little too personal for our comfort.
“My neighbor got his reindeer decorations stolen so he put these out instead.”
Thieves are just the worst. And people who steal Christmas decorations are just on a whole other level of terrible. Luckily, this person decided to respond in the most clever way possible by putting up photos of the thief, which were caught on their security camera.
“So my neighbors had a dispute…”
When the neighbors called the police on this person, instead of just talking to him like a good neighbor would, he decided not to get angry. Instead, he got revenge in the most random and hilarious way possible, by littering his neighbor’s lawn with about 30 Flamingos. Definitely a classy move.
“How my neighbor stops kids from hitting their balls against his wall.”
Yikes. This guy is not messing around. But to be honest, we totally respect this brutally harsh solution to an annoying problem. Most people would just go to the kids’ parents and politely ask them to please not throw balls at their house, but we have a feeling this guy’s idea is way more effective.
“Our elderly neighbors have this sign posted on the bike path in their backyard.”
Some elderly people are busy baking cookies and knitting sweaters for their grandchildren. But then there is the other type of elderly people, who you definitely don’t wanna mess with. Honestly, we have a feeling they will follow through on this unusual threat if necessary.
“These are the notes My neighbor left for the maintenance guy.”
There are people who love animals, and then there are cat people. Most pet owners care about their animals and will do anything to protect them. However, cat owners take it to the next level and seem to know their feline friends even better than they know most humans.
“I just looked out my window and noticed that my neighbor is having a meeting with watermelons.”
Look, we’ve all been there, right? Well actually, we haven’t. Because most of us don’t sit around in our living room having conversations with fruit. But this is apparently the scenario that someone saw in the apartment building next to them, and they just had to snap a pic so that we would believe them.
“Thought I heard my neighbor mowing his lawn at 9pm last night….yup.”
We’re really not sure why anyone would be mowing the lawn at 9:00 pm, since it’s too dark out to see anything. Judging by the photo, this person clearly wasn’t trying to trim the grass nicely, so it seems like he just did it to annoy the rest of the neighborhood.
“My neighbor has a message.”
It can be really annoying when random strangers park in your driveway or in front of your house. So this person decided to address the problem head-on, by leaving a very straightforward sign on his driveway, using these popular Taylor Swift lyrics as inspiration.
“My neighbor demoted his microwave to mailbox duty.”
Most people use their things until they get old, and then they throw them away. That’s just the circle of life. However, this person’s neighbor is not like most people and decided to give his old broken microwave a new purpose in life. Truly inspiring.
“It’s been a week since my neighbor showed up with this agave plant in his truck.”
If this situation was happening to us, we would probably be super curious too. However, we understand why this guy doesn’t want to seem like a nosy neighbor and hasn’t worked up the courage to ask about it yet. Please let us know when you find out though!
“Christmas tip: put your Christmas trash in your neighbor’s bin so they get robbed instead of you.”
This person probably posted this as a joke, but we’re guessing there are some neighbors out there who might actually do this! Let’s just say that this is a terrible way to make new friends on the block, but at least your new TV won’t be stolen.
“There are two types of tenants in every building.”
LOL. This scene truly captures the difference between guys and girls in one perfect comparison. We’re pretty sure we know whose is whose, just judging by the balcony decorations…or lack, thereof.
“It was my neighbor’s birthday yesterday.”
There are two types of people in the world. There are those who don’t make a big deal about birthdays and prefer a low-key celebration with just a couple of close friends. And then there are people who take their day of birth to the next level and make sure the whole neighborhood knows it. Guess which category this woman is in?
“My neighbor’s dog, just keepin it casual.”
There is literally nothing casual about this sight, which someone saw when they walked into their backyard. Clearly, things are a little boring next door and this friendly guy could use some company.
“Mary’s a savage.”
Wow, Mary. Seriously? We really can’t believe this real estate agent went there, but honestly, this is advertising at it’s finest. We’re still not sure we would buy this propery, which is right across the street from a local cememtary, but we definitely appreciate the effort.
“How much for the toaster we gave you at the wedding?”
When someone getting a divorce in a small town, pretty much everyone knows about it. After all, everyone in the neighborhood is friends and were probably all at each others’ weddings. So when this person saw a “divorce yard-sale” sign on his way home, he was just wondering if he could get his toaster back.
“When the fire station and the Police department are neighbors.”
LOL. There clearly isn’t much to do in a small town, even for the local fire and police departments, so this is what happens! Honestly, if we saw a box that said “free donuts,” we’d probably walk right into the trap too.
“My neighbors complained that it’s too cold for my dog to be outside all day during the winter. I sent them this.”
There are many types of annoying people in the world. But perhaps the most annoying type of people are know-it-alls. This person’s neighbor thought they knew what was best for his dog. Clearly, they didn’t realize that dogs have no problem with cold weather, and actually choose to sit directly on top of the snow.
“My dad hates our neighbor so much that he’s installing one-way mirrors facing his house.”
There is a lot of petty revenge that goes on between neighbors, but this is really taking it to the next level, and we have to give this guy credit for his creativity. Putting up one-way mirrors is the perfect way to show your nosy neighbors what they look like when they’re snooping.
“Although we never really got along, my neighbor brought me some Christmas cookies. I only saw this After I had finished eating the whole thing.”
Um. What was in those cookies? We’re not sure what kind of relationship these people have with their neighbors, but we would definitely a bit more suspicious about accepting any free food in the future,
“I would not want to be their downstairs neighbors”
This is what nightmares are made of. Imagine walking into your apartment to be greeted by a huge sinkhole on your living room floor. The owners of this apartment could not believe their eyes when they saw this in their home. They’re very lucky they weren’t home. Looks like it’s time to find a new place to live.
“My neighbor leaves this in her window to scare passersby.”
For a second, we didn’t notice it either. But just look again, and you’ll see it. This creepy window display is perfect for Halloween, except this person keeps it up all year long.
This family’s front lawn might look really crazy to most people passing through the town. But if you slow down for a minute and read the sign, it’s actually pretty funny, especially if you appreciate a good pun.
“Can’t beat a bit of passive-aggressive Wi-Fi naming.”
There’s nothing that says petty like getting into a fight with your neighbors over Wi-Fi. Yet, that is exactly what happened here! When this person’s neighbor complained about their music, they decided to snap back with an equally rude Wi-Fi network name.
“There are some indications of animosity between two of my neighbors.”
This person spotted these mats at two different apartments in his building and just had to snap a pic. Clearly, there is some kind of rivalry going on between these two neighbors, who have decided to express their dislike for one another through Batman-themed mats.
“My neighbor’s kid is always playing in my yard and leaving his toys. Today I left this in his yard.”
This person just got fed up with her neighbor’s behavior and decided to leave this hilarious warning message: “My neighbor’s kid is always playing in my yard and leaving his toys. When he left two broomsticks, I left this in his yard as a warning. And yes, it is still winter in Canada.”
“My town takes Halloween very seriously.”
This person’s town takes their Halloween displays to the next level, and luckily, they decided to share it with the internet. Clearly, there is no slacking around the holiday season if you’re a member of this neighborhood.
“My neighbor and I agreed to put a pet door in the fence so that our dogs can play together more often.”
Wow. We never thought we’d see the day that two neighbors work together without any petty arguments getting in the way. But amazingly, these two neighbors came together to do something sweet for their dogs, and it’s truly an inspiration for the rest of us.
“My neighbor was having some work down on her house and left this outside.”
This person felt a little bad for all the guys stuck working at her house on a Saturday and decided to do something nice. This sweet gesture was the perfect way to brighten up everyone’s day, and her next-door neighbor couldn’t help but snap a photo.
“Why does my neighbor have a giant Godzilla statue in his yard?”
Um, yea, if we were this guy, we would probably be asking the same question. Although sometimes in life, it’s better to just not ask, because we might not actually want to know the truth.
“My neighbor thinks he’s hilarious because he always keeps a snowball frozen to throw at me in the summer. It’s time for revenge.”
This guy and his neighbor have a friendly but competitive relationship, like a lot of people. But clearly, they take their rivalry to the next level, because most of us would never plan our revenge this far ahead, or take up valuable ice cream space with snowballs.
“I didn’t know where to put this, so here ya go: my neighbor shot a hole in my wall from two doors down.”
Um, yikes. Let’s just say that it never gets too boring around this person’s neighborhood, thanks to one particular neighbor who always keeps things interesting. Who needs Netflix when you’ve got way more fascinating things happening on the block?
“My friend doesn’t know how to park. The neighbor kids left him a message.”
Ouch. Are kids getting more savage these days, or is it just us? Most of us are not exactly experts at parking. For some people, trying to squeeze into a tight spot is a total nightmare. These local kids might have been a little harsh, but hey at least someone is patrolling the neighborhood.
“My neighbor’s turbine is obnoxiously loud. I guess someone got tired of it.”
This neighbor might not have meant to be noisy on purpose, but this turbine on top of his house was waking the whole neighborhood up. Apparently, people just got tired of it and decided to take action. This guy will probably never find out who did it, but let’s just say it was a message from the whole town.
“Spotted this ‘friendly’ message in my neighborhood.”
When you live in a small town where everyone’s in each other’s business, sometimes things can get pretty tense. This passive-aggressive response to a neighbor’s nagging comments is truly hilarious and is the definition of petty revenge goals.
“Looks like the neighbors are kicking religion to the curb.”
This person was just driving down the road when they stumbled upon this weird sight. Apparently, one of their neighbors decided it was time for a change, and dumped all their front lawn statues by the curb. Maybe they’re just redecorating but it might also be some serious life changes. Who knows!
“Spotted while driving through town.”
When this person was driving down the road and came across this sight, they just had to snap a picture, and we totally understand why. It’s pretty amazing that anyone would rake up all the leaves in their lawn, only to let some random strangers jump in the pile and mess it all up. If that isn’t the definition of humanity, we don’t know what is.
“My Neighbors Have Had Friends Camping In Their Backyard For Way Too Long”
Talk about annoying. This resident thought they were moving into a quiet suburban neighborhood, not a trailer park and camping grounds. On the bright side, at least their neighborhood barbecues are likely tons of fun now that they have a camping vibe going on.
“My neighbors are the perfect example of why you shouldn’t leave your sprinklers on overnight in the winter.”
Maybe it wasn’t the most responsible thing ever to leave their sprinklers on all night in freezing cold weather. However, the result is truly magical, and we’re sure the whole neighborhood is happy that this awesome accident happened.
“Somehow, it’s winter at my house but Fall at my neighbor’s.”
There are certain things in life that we can take as a sign. We’re not sure if these two neighbors get along but judging by the totally different weather on each of their lawns, we’re guessing that they’re not that close.
“Someone stole our pride flag. So our neighbors got us a new one.”
When this family noticed their pride flag had gone missing, they probably lost all faith in humanity. Thankfully, their neighbors stepped in to help. They bought them new flags as a reminder that there are still some great people in this world.
“Neighbors use our front yard as a dump for their broken trees.”
We’ve all had some bad neighbors in our lives, but these people truly take the cake. Why anyone would think this is okay, we have no idea. Luckily, this person handled it calmly and took a picture for proof. Hopefully, it will come in handy later.
“My neighbors didn’t like the color of my house was so they had it painted while I was out of town.”
This person shared that ever since her new neighbors moved in, they would comment on the color of her house. One day, after being away for a couple of weeks, she came back to a gray home. Apparently, her neighbors had sneakily hired a painter to cover the yellow paint thinking she wouldn’t mind.
“New neighbors of less than a month put their fire pit a liiiiitle too close to the garage.”
Getting new neighbors can always be a challenge. We never know how it’s going to turn out. Either we’ll get along great and have BBQs together in the summer. Or, they might turn out to be the neighbors from hell. Judging by this person’s photo, we’re guessing their new neighbors might fall into the second category.
