What is a something small that bothers you big?

I don't like that my neighbour opposite lets her guests park in my spaces and they throw their rubbish on the floor when they get in and out of the car. 馃槧

Should I put up a sign? 馃槓

Things out of order

[@1098989,Donotfolowme] I like that
[@1095867,KuroNeko] you like things all over the place?
KuroNeko41-45, F
[@1098989,Donotfolowme] I thought you meant put an 'out of order' sign up. Nvm.
No, put a letter through the door? 馃拰
KuroNeko41-45, F
[@1073121,Leggs] Yes, and yes she would.

[@1095867,KuroNeko] I looked up photos of "chav".

Except the burberry thing, it doesn't look any different than America's white kids who try to be black.
Leggs46-50, F
[@1095867,KuroNeko] Also, is this Tesco place the UK equivalent of the USA Walmart?

It's funny because even though a lot of nouns between the two nations are different but the ideas and realities are the same.
Loud chewing. I want to cut them

It is not as bad recently but the neighbors' dogs barking.
As soon as they see us step out though, they shut up.
KuroNeko41-45, F
[@863013,bugeye] She doesn't even have a car herself, she lets a different neighbour park in her space 馃槧
bugeye26-30, F
[@1095867,KuroNeko] well then the neighbours guests car get wrecked. either way you get to keep your nice clean driveway.
Just shove a potato up their exhaust to teach them a lesson

People leaving empty plastic bags somewhere in the wilderness because they are lazy. When I see that I feel like [u]corporal[/u] punishment should come back.
KuroNeko41-45, F
[@6602,helenS] I am with you.

I don't like that people ask "What's your nationality?" when what they really mean is "What's your ethnicity?".

I always say "I'm American, just like you."
quitwhendone46-50, M
[@1095867,KuroNeko] You have a good point but I think they just ask to keep statistics.
Leggs46-50, F
[@955094,quitwhendone] Best to put "other" on forms.
I mean no one is going to challenge it, kind of for the same reason the DMV doesn't question someone's weight. There are just certain things people do not want to challenge.
KuroNeko41-45, F
[@1073121,Leggs] You are probably right. If at any point down the line someone did want to discriminate then they surely would.
Gangstress36-40, F
Wait, why are we living in the house now lol. I started throwing stones at their cars in defiance.
KuroNeko41-45, F
[@467717,Gangstress] perhaps a sprinkling of tacks..
Gangstress36-40, F
[@1095867,KuroNeko] not a bad shout 馃憣 haha
Leggs46-50, F
[@1095867,KuroNeko] That would be kind of tacky.
Get it? Tacky?

Everything. I swear. To others they are small, but they bother ME. Just too sensitive maybe 馃
Shipwrecked41-45, M
That sounds like more than a "small" issue...

I don't like it when people squeeze the toothpaste from the middle of the tube...馃お
Leggs46-50, F
[@506625,Shipwrecked] Yeah I get kicked out of the store every time I do that.
KuroNeko41-45, F
[@506625,Shipwrecked] well on the scale of things it's small. Always bigger things happening in the world, especially right now.
Shipwrecked41-45, M
[@1095867,KuroNeko] I suppose you're right.
...but leaving a mess is still terrible manners. 馃槈
SumKindaMunster51-55, M
No, direct confrontation.

Hi Neighbor! Hey, I noticed some of your guests have accidentally dropped some of their trash when they get out of their cars. You mind picking it up?
SumKindaMunster51-55, M
[@1095867,KuroNeko] Hm, well I can assure you I lived next to a family of people just like this, and just as you say, they had problems with the law, were shady, loud, messy and didn't give a fuck.

I had issues with their kids, the noise, their trash, etc.

I tried being nice for awhile, obviously it didnt' work.

You know what worked?

Exactly what I already explained to you.

I didn't let up.

I didn't back down.

If they were out making noise, I went out and screamed at them or called the cops.

If I found that they had thrown trash on my yard, I dumped it on their front steps.

I put up a fence, they sued me.

I counter sued them for harrasement. You don't need a lawyer for small claims court, you can research this and do it all on your own.

I made it difficult for them.

One thing about criminals and other "marginal" types is they are ultimately lazy, entitled, and want things the easy way.

If you make it difficult for them, they will give up, and take the path of least resistance.

I lived through it, so I can say this with authority.

Obviously, it's a longer story than I would put in a response, but again, I went through something like this, and I assure you, my efforts resolved the problem.

They still live next door to me. But they don't bother me at all.

You are welcome to PM me if you wish to discuss it further.

Good luck!

[@622788,SumKindaMunster] I plan to move soon (not just because of that). I'd really rather not stress myself out too much over it. The people who live next door to her have had 10 years of that nonsense and haven't gotten anywhere. Like I said, it's a little thing. I have way more pressing issues in my life. Thanks though.
SumKindaMunster51-55, M
[@1095867,KuroNeko] You bet. If it's a temporary situation, perhaps waiting to move is for the best.

Have a good weekend.
KuroNeko41-45, F
[@1041230,AnnaOof] yes thats annoying.
KuroNeko41-45, F
[@680132,Justafantasy] [big]OH GOD WHY???[/big]
[@1095867,KuroNeko] exactly! If you ain't going to take it to a garbage can let it decompose naturally (put please bag it and take it to the trash)
