29 Nightmare Neighbors That Prove People Are Awful

For most of us, neighbors are a fact of life. We generally don’t get to choose them, their behaviors, or their level of entitlement. Who we leave next to or near is an extremely risky roll of the dice. For the people included in this list, they lost. Ranging from the dangerous to the entitled, these are all neighbors that we would only wish our on least favorite people in the world.

1. “Neighbor’s boyfriend living above us accidentally discharged a firearm through our bedroom ceiling.”

2. “Neighbors just moved it and hit a telephone pole taking out power to the whole block”

A damaged utility pole is leaning on power lines above a grey pickup truck towing a trailer, which is stopped near a white truck with red flashing lights. It's a cloudy day with wet ground and sparse trees in the background.

3. “My neighbor hates his driveway and instead parks in front of our yard.”

A suburban neighborhood features several houses with cars parked outside. Two areas are highlighted with red circles: one around a driveway labeled "his driveway" and another around a parked white car labeled "my neighbor's car." The scene is during winter with bare trees and a dry lawn.

4. “My neighbor (red car) parked behind me (white car)”

A silver car and a maroon car parked on a street are touching bumper-to-bumper. The front of the maroon car is pressed against the rear of the silver car. Both have their license plates obscured. The background shows a fence and other parked vehicles.

5. Inconsiderate neighbors

6. “My neighbor’s new light”

A split image shows two scenes at night, both illuminated by green light. The left side shows two parked vehicles and surrounding trees. The right side depicts a person standing in a driveway near a garage, casting a long shadow on the ground.

7. “Entitled neighbor wasn’t happy with my parking job, so they blocked me in.”

A dimly lit underground parking lot with two vehicles parked closely next to each other. On the left is a grey car and on the right is a green pickup truck, both with partially unclear license plates. Another vehicle is faintly visible to the right.

“Grey car is mine. As you can see, I was a mile away from the line.”

8. “Neighbor is draining their pool into our yard!”

A small green plant circled in orange is growing next to a wooden fence. The plant is surrounded by a few brown and green leaves, and the ground appears wet.

“Basically, the title. My retired neighbor is draining their pool into our yard. He does this every year, but he stuck the hose under the fence this time. He stopped when I asked, but will probably just do it again tomorrow when I leave for work. The chlorine kills the grass off every year.”

9. “Woke up to my neighbor’s huge Truck parked in my driveway today”

An envelope with a typed message stating, "SOMETHING BAD IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO YOUR DOG IF YOU DON'T GET IT'S BARKING UNDER CONTROL." The envelope rests on a blurred background, possibly other paper or a surface.

16. “Neighbor dropped an AC on my car while I was away on vacation”

20. “My duplex neighbor thinks my driveway is his kiddy pool spot”

A red inflatable kiddie pool is set up on a concrete driveway next to a black car in front of a house with a covered porch. The porch has a white rocking chair and some potted plants. A yellow hose is connected to the pool, and some shrubs are in the foreground.

21. “What my neighbor left in front of my driveway”

A suburban cul-de-sac with several houses surrounded by green trees and lawns. A pile of rocks is placed on the edge of the street, and a red car is parked in a driveway. Mountains are visible in the background under a clear blue sky.

22. “Neighbor won’t share the cost of a fence and did a repair”

Two side-by-side images of a wooden fence repair. The left image shows several screws along the bottom of the fence, with leaves and dirt on the ground. The right image shows a closer view of the fence with screws protruding, set against a background of foliage and a clear sky.

“He moved and rented out the house next door to us. We asked if he wanted to replace fence and we would split the cost and he refused. This was his solution, and our dogs suffered injuries before we noticed.”

23. “Neighbor keeps parking in the handicap parking spot. Even after several warnings from management.”

25. “Received in the mail from a concerned neighbor”

A typed note reads, "CONGRATULATIONS! You mowed. That's twice so far this year, I believe. Can you keep it up? Maybe weekly? Or at least every other week? Your neighbors would be very grateful if your house did not look like it was abandoned." The note is slightly crumpled.

26.”My neighbor set our apartment building on fire.”

A fire engulfs a residential building, sending thick smoke into the sky. A shirtless person in blue shorts stands in the foreground, holding a bag. Several other individuals observe and react to the fire. A white picket fence and trees are visible in the scene.

“My roommate and I luckily lived in the unit farthest away from the source of the fire, so we had plenty of time to evacuate. 95% of our stuff is fine. It just stinks.”

27. “Our new neighbor has parked like this every day since they moved in.”

A collage of four images shows a silver Mazda car parked poorly in different parking spots. The car is consistently parked over the line, occupying two spaces in each image. The locations appear to be outdoor parking lots, partially shaded by trees.

28. “This is how my neighbor parks”

A black sedan is parked on the street next to a silver car on a sunny day in a suburban neighborhood. Snow is visible on parts of the ground, and there are houses, trees, and a snowman in the background.

“We live in a cul-de-sac, so it’s a difficult maneuver to pull out of our driveway and avoid hitting his car. It’s especially had at night due to it being a black car, and the street is not well-lit.”

29. “Neighbor wants Halloween Decorations down Nov 1st.”
