    We had a neighbor at our old rental house that was a drunk old man. He would get drunk then go in to the back yard (right next to my infant son's window) and yell...errr..play..? with his dog. Like, yelling in exasperation at his dog about his dog not listening to him? idk, but he would do it every evening. Then they got another dog and that one barked a lot, and was extremely menacing when we were in our yard with just the chain link fence separating us.

    My current neighbors fight about everything. The police are called a few times a week. THese people are over 65 and should know better. The most recent fight was over who the new plastic hangers belonged to.

    me and my ex husband lived in an apartment and the people next to us fought all the time. they had a baby too that would cry and scream while they would fight. one night they fought and then all left. about 10 mins later cops should up at our door and came in telling us we had a complaint for fighting we kept telling them it wasnt us and it was the neighbors. it got to the point they had my husband out side and me in the bed room trying to talk to us separate. she was talking to me about woman homes and abuse assistance and kept asking where the baby was. My husband almost went to jail because he was getting so mad over it all. finally neighbors up stairs came down and said they were the ones that called and that the police had the wrong apartment.

    My crack head neighbor got arrested a few years ago for chasing a lady down the street. His reasoning was that she stopped at several houses every night on our street. Turned out she was delivering newspapers. He was arrested last month for possession of meth and stealing ATM machines. He won't be back for a while. Funny thing is we live in one of the nicest neighborhoods in town. You just never know for sure what other people are up to.

    Guy that lives next door took to shooting squirrels in both our yards because "they keep getting into my attic". So logic dictated that he shoot squirrels versus repairing & securing his attic. *smh*

    Well it would be worth it if he takes them, skins them and fries them up. Otherwise it is just a waste.

    Most of my neighbors have been quiet and unassuming. Some were kind of busybodies, but not too many.

    However, when I was still attending university, we had some guys renting the house next to ours who liked to throw parties every day that wasn't Sunday or Monday. One of their favorite pastimes was to take a large mattress up to the roof and "sled" off of the roof and into the street repeatedly. They would even hold races at times. The police had been called a few times (more for the noise than the sledding) and the police would usually break up their parties, but only after watching a few rounds of these guys sledding off of the roof. Surprisingly, there was only one incident in the year I lived there of someone injuring themselves.

    Most of my other "weird" stories involve the police being called because people sounded like they were being abused/raped/murdered and come to find out that my neighbors are into some pretty kinky *kitten*. I mean, I don't mind, but damn.. keep it down. It's 3AM and some of us work or have class, lol.

    Submitted for the approval of the midnight society:

    I once had a neighbor who thought his ex wife was a witch, lose his mind, break into another neighbor's house and take the whole family hostage at gunpoint. Nobody was hurt.

    When I was a kid there was a girl across the street who was a terrible bully. Then one day her dad went nuts and was holding her hostage in the house at gunpoint while the cops surrounded it. After they took him away she became a very nice person.

    At current house a neighbor pulled a gun on my husband because he walked our elderly dog on the sidewalk and the dog went #1 on the curb (not on the guy's lawn but on the curb of the street in front of his house).

    When I was a teen the lady across the street called us one day to say there was a bird flying around in our basement. How she noticed bird flying around by looking in the tiny basement windows creeped me out, she must have been staring pretty intently at the house.

    Nah, she probably saw the bird desperately flying around and beating itself against the window glass.

    I once walked by an old townhouse/office, saw a bird trying to escape from a sealed basement window, and told the receptionist. It's not that unusual.

    1 of my neighbours is a few sandwiches short of a picnic. A drug addict. A trouble maker. All round nightmare.

    Been at my front door trying to start something, constantly accuses me of not putting my rubbish into the bin outside, asks me if I am the 1 in the close who has the cats.....cos apparently he's seen empty cat food containers outside. And this building is FULL of people who use the bins. Oh yeah but it MUST be me who let the food cartons fall out my double knotted black bin bag :confused: he has been at my front door about 8 times in less than 3 years. Shouts "rats" out his window if he sees me out putting my bin bags in the trash cans. Iv seen him cleaning the walls in the close because there was a foot print on the wall......

    He seen my brother and told him "we have to sort this close out " this guy seriously needs to get a life.

    I bet he wouldn't be picking on me or coming to my front door if I was a guy !! Who would no doubt give him a swift one to the face. I hate bullies ! The funny thing is they actually think they are picking on someone less strong than themselves bahahahaha

    When I was a kid, I saw my neighbor's wife chase her husband down the street with a knife (or gun, I can't remember for sure). It must have been a gun because he was running down the street screaming "she's got a gun!"

    LOL, man that sure was funny!

    They are still married to this day.

    Guy two houses up is a raging alcoholic. He doesn't work, he basically drinks until he passes out and starts up again. Anyway he likes to get drunk, takes off all his clothes except for his boxers and stand in the street when it rains. Sometimes he stands with his arms up in a "y" so he looks like one of the Village People doing the YMCA dance. Luckily he's the only known weirdness on the street.

    It's the neighbors with the unknown weirdness that you gotta worry about.

    I don't have weird neighbors because I don't like people so I pay no attention to them. Does that make me the weird neighbor?

    My neighbor liked to garden in rubber boots and what was basically a speedo but he was a nice person and would share his garden produce with everyone.
