Next door neighbours and their expectations.
So I live next door to a couple (a VERY conservative couple ) and their
twin boys. The boys can’t be more than 8, and like most kids, they like
to play in the back yard. Which is totally fine, doesn’t bother me at
all. They’re kids and like to run around.
What bothers me though is that they love to throw their toys over into
my yard. Alot of toys. Action figures, balls, frisbees, rackets, etc.
Them throwing them over don’t even really bother me that much. What
bothers me is that the parents keep demanding that we have to throw them
They don’t ask, they don’t knock on the door and apologize, they just
yell over there fence when they know that we are outside and TELL us to
give it back. And that bothers me. They also seem to encourage their
kids to throw it over to our yard.
So after Christmas I was at the store and saw that they had a ton of Barbie’s, nail polish, Bratz doll frisbees, and balls on the clearance. I bought 5 of everything I could find that I knew my neighbors would hate seeing their sons play with. Every time an action figure gets thrown over to my yard, I will throw a barbie back with it. Every time a ball gets thrown, a Bratz ball will be returned. I already threw a couple nail polishes over and the twins went crazy. They loved it. They’ve had pink, purple, and green nails all week.
It’s been 2 days and not a single action figure has crossed my fence. More importantly, not a single rude demand from the parents to return them. The kids are having fun, and I have pretty revenge.
