They say, “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer” but what’s for sure is that our neighbors are the closest. Even the ones we really really wish were not that close at all. Terrible neighbors are not so unusual, but we found some of the crème de la crème of awfulness.
So, the next time you think of moving houses, here are some neighbors that you do NOT want to end up next door too. Some of these will make you cringe, most of them will crack you up! But some, admittedly, will hit a little too close to home, trust me. For example, this guy with a pool-inside-a-pool taking up his whole back yard is sure to make you ‘pool’ out of the house hunting game altogether.
Talk about forgetting to mow the lawn… These neighbors take 'a bad cut' to a whole other level with this grassy disaster.
From raising the water usage taxes of the entire block to losing your dog in the hedges time after time this house comes to show you there are much safer things out there than the grass being greener on the other side.
Last Years Christmas Decoration..
We all know there is nothing worse than having a neighbor who continually "forgets" to take down their Christmas decorations.
And speaking of Christmas decorations, it looks like the Grinch hit this house HARD… either that or it must have been a drive by. Imagine living next to this vaguely festive related upchuck all year round.
Need I say more? Literally, nothing says bad neighbor more than a FRIKIN COUCH ON THE ROOF.
His day planner must have looked something like this: Drink beer. Watch hot neighbor girl. Drink beer. Fall off roof and sprain ankle. Get back on roof. Drink Beer. Um, sir? Maybe you should be closer to the ground when you’re planning on doing all that drinking…
Ever wonder where Spiderman lives? Well now you don't have to wonder anymore. It is in this upside-down house, obviously. Climbing up regular houses must not have given the same ol' rush of adrenaline anymore…
Seriously, what were these people thinking? Assuming we overlook the incredibly flawed stability issues of this house-like construction being based upon a pointy edge, the glued up green garbage dumpster is a nice touch to the whole thing.
Checkers is sooooo old school. You call the police on my lawn? Here is a flock of tiny pink flamingos! YOUR MOVE.
Talk about petty neighbors… what happened to the good old days when a neighbor could walk over to another neighbor's door and ask them for a glass of milk without worrying about massive neighborhood feud?
Scooter Lawn Mower
Life hack tip no. 1: lawnmower can't mow the lawn by itself? hook a lawnmower up to your household Vespa and POW
This guy was so lazy he didn't even want to take the time to stand around to mow his lawn… I would hate to see how he walks his kids to school with that kind of motivation… definitely would not want to live next to this guy.
Biker Butt Mailbox
These wonderful neighbors must really hate the mailman if their willing to let him stick his hand down this cyclists pants each time he brings by their mail.
Pro tip: even if you like reaching in through a mail-box-butt, it's not for everyone. Don't force your mail-box-butt reaching habits upon the rest of us!
Outdoor TV Setup
These neighbors figured their living room was no match for this fine spring day we seem to be having and hooked up a pop-up TV station on their lawn.
Those huge speakers are sure to kill someones eardrums too, you know… since they are OUTSIDE! I don't even want to think about the kinds of people that might just drop by to support this kind of thing.
If Andy Warhol doesn't live here there is really no excuse for this kind of thing. Did this guy really think this was the best solution for a plant holder?
Did he just happen to have the number of an old dysfunctional toilet seat dealer?? The road to hell may be paved with good intentions but it is so lined with toilet plants…
The House Is Alive
Who is afraid of the big bad neighbor? Just in case the thought of hopping over to meet the new neighbors crossed your mind, this guy made sure you never think that again by taping by fake teeth onto his house.
Those freshly baked welcome cookies will end up deep inside cookie house monster and you'll be next. Super creepy. Albeit, it is a great way to keep away trick-or-treaters around the holiday time.
Old School TV Mount
This neighbors TV is doing some major catfishing amongst the neighborhood flat screens.
Considering long term expenses, I'm pretty sure instead of carving a giant hole through his wall to support this dated piece of garbage, he should have just splurged on the real deal. Plus, this isn't even discreet! How was he planning to explain this to his date walking through the driveway?
Well these neighbors are just glorious… canine or homo-sapien, if these were my neighbors, I would never set foot on that sidewalk.
What ever happened to some privacy?? Besides, if they're in the same yard and want to chat with each other – keep us out of it! Some neighbors really give you the urge to go jump off the 'woof'.
I Guess Bob Wanted That Fence Painted
I don't wanna jump the fence on this one but I'm guessing this guy's neighbor Bob must have been all on this guy's back for days before this happened.
Well, guess what Bob? He has painted the fence Bob… have you painted your fence Bob? If he had painted it before would you have been all up in his face Bob? …with all that passive aggressive energy going around I must say I'm still quite taken buy this guy's meticulous grammar.
Not My Snow
Awww, look at this neighbor… so giving! So open hearted! With all the winter merriment he must have confused the words of that great song… "This snow is your snow, this snow is my snow…" or was in land?
what kind of of neighbor paves his snow into someone else's yard? I hope you're not living in this neighborhood because its gonna be a long winter.
These neighbors sure put out the worst garden display in town. There have got to be literally thousands of better options for planters out there and they chose old toilet bowls?
I would not want to know what goes on inside this guy's house... don't get too close. This neighbor may have decided to use toilette plants inside the house as well.
If you happen to stroll by this trailer, I would keep on strollin' and trailin' away. This looks like a lawsuit waiting to happen.
Legal issues aside, Me personally, I like walking to the top floor of my house from INSIDE the house… Someone has got to tell these guys that: trailer + trailer does not = bigger trailer
When this man put this up did he consider his neighbors? The passers by? I don't think so.
What kind of world do we live in when a neighbor has no consideration of his fellow neighbor and their stay-out-of-sight-of-scowling-donkey-mailboxes needs?! Well I can't change the world but I can definitely change zip codes.
Drunk Guy Passed Out
I don’t want to see this guys house if this is what he looked like leaving it and, as it appears, he has no intentions of going back anytime soon.
Seriously man, this used to be a nice neighborhood.. my daughter sits on that bench waiting for the school bus each morning! There will be no more sitting from this day onwards. Do you hear me Katie?? NO MORE SITTING!
Rope Around The Hoop
If your neighbor is holding their basketball hoop up by pole, being held up by a rope, being held up by a tree then maybe, just maybe - it’s not safe to shoot hoops on.
If you're anything like me, meaning, you have a brain, being held up by a head, being held up by the rest of you, you wouldn't waste any more shots around this neighborhood either.
Lawn Mower Pile
Well doesn't this little neighborhood store just say 'home' all over it? Welcome to "Husqvarna?" we sell electric saws, totem poles and a heap of broken down lawnmowers.
You cant make this stuff up… If that’s not what horror films are made of then I don’t know what is! Now take your wife, take your kids and run! On the plus side, at least these neighbors shouldn’t have a problem keeping their grass cut.
Trailer Park High Rise
Welcome to "Six Flags"! I mean… 'Six Floors'… the amusement park where everyone is shockingly amused that anyone would let alone live, but build such a place to live in.
I can't stress this point enough – just because you've got a forest-like terrain and a lovely little pond does not mean it is the time and place for a trailer castle-like concoction! What's that? I've got to go… I hear the property rates shooting down…
Party Girls Move In Next Door
Nothing says class like the matching hair and outfits on these neighbor girls. And now seriously - living next to a sorority house has got to be one of the worst things you can do…
This picture was taken when they first got there! I'm not permitted by law to show you the later-that-night shots… You do not want that spilling all over your lawn into all sorts of crazy hours of the night. Truly nothing can be worse…
Well, except for living under this frat house. What possible daily scenario could have taken place to have a full sized couch, accidently, fall out the window and into your downstairs neighbors balcony?!
You see, I've checked, and couch-pong isn't a thing, so… that rules that out… In all this confusion I totally forgot to take into account the possibility that perhaps the couch was being lowered to the ground for the purpose of sidewalk sitting! So, we really ought to rule this one out of the bad-neighbor race altogether.
Weird Garbage Can
Either these neighbors are feeling exceptionally sentimental about these dried up fallen leaves because they don't think fall will ever come again..
Or… no, there is no other possible reason for this to be going on outside your apartment. These people are just lowering the property value…
If you thought living next to Garfield gave you higher chances to be in the vicinity of some good lasagna you must have been thinking of Garfield senior.
This is his son – not so lovable now is he? I must admit it is partially Odie's influence but that doesn’t change the fact that dark and lonely street corners occupied solely by oversized once-adored now a-mess, cartoon characters are not where I see myself raising my children.
Save Some For The Rest
It's one thing to have neighbors that party too much, too loud and too often but it's another when their not even willing to share!
Ms. Manners would clearly advise that upon throwing a party, the polite thing to do is: To invite one's neighbors See to it that you are in possession of a cup or two Move somewhere else already!
There's nothing worse than living next to a bunch of squatters. Or is there?... what about living next to a bunch of squatting squatters?
Or some squatting squatters doing squats perhaps? Such a squared away sequence of secure and sequined masquerading scoundrels of scrutiny. Oh, and the sidewalk theater? Not a bonus.
When your kid tells you he's done half his homework and he's taking a break before he gets to the second half
Reality check – there ain't gonna be no other half…. Either one of these neighbors is a real slacker or he must have right really pissed off the landlord. A classic case of king Solomon and the splitting of the baby dilemma… only this time it didn't go so smoothly.
When in doubt – don't put out your microwave and use it as a mailbox! Do I leave my dishwasher outside to collects pretty looking rocks and twigs? Do I set up my laundry machine in the doorway for the placing of shoes?
There must be a reason that the word appliance is made out of the acronym for: Apparently these people Live like animals And have no conscience…
You can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink… and you can lead a cat to the road side but you definitely can't make him cross!
These neighbors take the whole being a cat-person to the next level. From the ridicules sign, to the traffic cones and all the way to the chalk lines drawn across the street just wide enough for the crossing of two mediocre sized cats crossing in alternate directions, this neighbor has WAY too much time on his hands and if I may – an unhealthy obsession of the personification of felines.
Hey Greg, Get Outta Here
How Rude. These neighbors don't even have the guts to look Greg in the eyes and say this to his face. What kind of people do that??
?? Is that a music sheet holder keeping up that obnoxious insult? It just goes to show you – even well-educated-sheet-music-readers can create the most inhospitable environments. P.s. If only Greg could read, he could separate himself from this awful situation.
Interesting Rain Gutters
If your neighbors decide to do this to their rain gutters - it is time to call the authorities. What better place to hide a body? It's time to get out. Now.
As if the black boards and rock combination making up this house wasn't creepy enough, am I right? Either way, If you do decide to stay, look on the bright side, they are probably very neat people… I mean, they sure know how to clean up after themselves…
Jonathan is 18. Since when is that an acceptable excuse for turning the town into a farmyard of plastic animals? Cow tipping and littering aside, this seems to be a MOO-t point.
You know, a cows opinion.. but is this really the best way to celebrate a birthday party? Are you really willing to MOO-ve in next to this guy who can't even throw a proper birthday celebration? And you know those cows are gonna stick around for years on end… I'd say that’s pretty strong MOO-tivation to get going in the opposite direction.
Hot Tub On The Roof
"The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire!" or it better have been to provide a decent explanation for this hot-tub-on-roof catastrophe!
You can bet the kid that lives here is going around school telling his friends he's got a hot tub on the roof… Not the kind of people you want to be associated with when you want to make some new friends around town.
You're a long way from home if you bump into this… and this is a long way from sane. I bet the mail man was like: "yo, move your mailbox farther into the street. I don't want to go all the way down your drive way!" and these people were like:
"Hey, we ain't moving nothing!" So, the mail guy was like: "If that mail box isn’t a hard reach away from the sidewalk tomorrow then good luck getting your mail!" So these neighbors were like: "(picture of giraffe mailbox here)". It is possible. But do you really want to live near people with that kind of conflict resolution abilities? I didn't think so.
She Made It So Close
As far as my neighbor is concerned: Just another Tuesday. As far as I'm concerned: Walking over intoxicated human on our SHARED doorstep is not a habit I plan on bringing into my daily routine.
This neighbor must have no regards for other people's space and time. Hey if I'm not allowed to borrow that fluffy looking coat from time to time then I'm leaving for sure!
Double Above Ground Pools
Hey there friendly neighbor, when your outdoor pool cracks a leak, you clear it out of there BEFORE you bring in a new one.
You see, taking the old one out now would be a slightly more difficult task… oh, you don’t plan on taking out the old one? I see… so… your just gonna continuously live in a junk yard? I see… and this doesn't bother you? I see… um… HOME-OWNERS ASSOCIATION PLEASE!
Can you possibly imagine a worse neighbor? Talk about paranoid… A scarecrow is one thing, but this is taking it too far!
I bet the people across the street from this guy have a pretty hard time getting to sleep. As if the binoculars, hat and mustache weren't creepy enough, this guy has no body… 5 bucks says there are tiny little cameras in those big blue eyes. RUN. RUN FAST.
Straight From The Bottle
This new neighbor is messy and clumsy… always intoxicated… can't take responsibility and can't even stand on their own feet! Oh, and the girl is pretty bad too.
The last thing you need when you move into a new neighborhood is a next door booze fest. Just keep it down, keep it moderately sober – and I'm sure we'll get along just fine.
This neighborhood gets weirder each year. Are these guys out of some strange TV show? These heavy metal enthusiasts will make you walk enthusiastically in the opposite direction…
If your neighborhood needs the protection of these guardians of hell, you're probably in the wrong neighborhood… just paint your face up in a sign of solidarity and get the heck outa there. P.s. these guys are nowhere even near Halloween time…
Toilet Lawn Ornaments
This can't possibly be upping the property value… but hey, that’s what you get for living in a toilet neighborhood.
Not everybody's got what it takes to be the next up-and-coming trend-setters and I'm pretty sure these neighbors with their new and interesting lawn ornaments ideas simply don't have the same "it" factor we were looking for when we let knee-less jeans become a 'thing'.
Bears And A Playground
What a fantastic looking neighborhood…NOT! Here's a crazy idea… Maybe don’t put the playground right next to the area where the bears hang out!
Crazy Idea, I know, but it's worth looking into… unless these people think they can cut costs off a babysitter by hiring a grizzly – these people are firkin insane!
These trashy neighbors tear up the block each weekend with their laud music, dirty parties, questionable guests and the stench of alcohol.
It takes two whole days later for the place to stop smelling like a bad medical center. How do they even afford the liquor? I haven't once seen anyone leave the house and head out to a paying job. I won't be dropping by here to borrow milk anytime soon.
I’ve heard of people being floored before, but being 'grassed' is a new one for me. This guy drank so much last night that he forgot where he lives and used this piece of sod as a blanket.
P. s. his house is ten feet to the right. His own house. The one that belongs to him, only. The sidewalks are for all of us guy! And baseball season is still sometime away… you're no grassy knoll and your being no use to anybody. If I were this guys parents I'd be sending apology muffin baskets all over this neighborhood.
Take a minute… see if you can tell that there is anything wrong with these neighbors.
These guys have got a gate with no fence! Being affective is obviously not their forte. Having a gate with no fence is like having a sharpener with no pencil, or a shoe with no feet… or something a little more normal sounding and a little less logical. The big letter 'D' here is sure to stand for 'dumb'…
Too Many Yard Trinkets
There should be a law against this type of behavior. Pro tip: Less is more. If you're gonna leave all this stuff lying around your garden the only purpose could be to draw the attention away from the disaster zone that is the house itself.
If your neighbor's got a house that looks like its got every kind of trinket crammed into it but frankincense and myrrh then you better 'myrrh've out of town ASAP and take your loved ones with you!
Neighbors House Is On The Market
When life gives you lemons, you make… a wild business opportunity! Looking for a new duplex in the center of an up-and-coming new neighborhood?
Have we got the place for you! 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, open floor plan, all around balconies and a scenic view of the park! Oops. Did I say up-and-coming? I meant down-and-leaving…. The neighbors who did this are truly the worst.
The Reindeer Is Dinner
Being invited to the neighborhood parties is not always all that it's cracked up to be. This neighbor, for instance, threw a low budget Christmas party out on his lawn.
Going with the theme here it was a BYOB kind of party… only it doesn’t look like anyone did. But check this out - that monster still had the audacity to keep all the Christmas presents! Some people… if that ain't the saddest thing you've ever seen I dare you to come to one of his New Year parties.
Totally Trashed Yard
These guys exterior decorating skills can use some work. I mean, red AND blue solo cups together?? That's just tacky. But for real – what kind of humans leave a place looking like this?? My mom raised me better that this.
If we all just took a little more responsibility over the trash we produce and cared a little for mother nature we would all live in a much safer place. Our environment is calling out to us people! And I'm calling off the search for housing around this mishap of a property.
If you've ever had nightmares about the army of the dead then this will scare the heck out of you.
This neighbor put together an army of lawnmowers. Each one making its snip-snip, whack wack wackety sound at its own rhythm and pace… all moving forward as a roaring deathly unit leaving little blades of victims laying behind them on the ground. Winter is coming… and no one is safe in this neighborhood anymore.
These neighbors ain't got no time to sit around and give anyone the bird but they sure know how to leave someone the bush.
This kind of neighbor only comes by every once in a blue- I mean green moon! They may not be expecting the queen of England to drop by on her annual garden evaluation tour this year but the tended blossoming greenery in this garden does seem to demand quite the captivated audience member.
I would love to tell you about the people who live in this house but you're probably wondering like "what? Which house?" but I kid you not – if you look straight ahead you'll see it!... can you see it now? There you go!
I hope it didn't take you too long to see what kind of neighbors I'm talking about cuz they do a pretty good job hiding it, you know, being camouflaged and all… Well, let me tell you about the obnoxious neighbors that live. Wait, where did they go? They were here a minute ago… Shoot. If only camo actually did make these guys disappear…
This constructor must have been the worst neighbor to some poor dude… but do me a favor, when you're looking for a new house and your checking out the properties, make sure the house your looking at wasn't supervised by this guy.
These people must have been like: "Sir, we love what you’ve done with the roofing and all but we didn't think we had to specify our preference that we may actually be able to drive INTO our garage as opposed to just looking at it."
VW Buggy In A Tree
Welcome to Alabama. This neighbors makes a 'Rudolf the red nosed rain deer" into a 'show off' and 'hell no' and 'oh dear'. This is one serious Christmas display. Problem?
It's bigger than your actual house! What are they gonna do on Easter? Drop an elephant sized Cadbury egg on the roof? Hire an army of forest bunnies? If all the neighbors around here are crazy enough to take part in such horrid looking festive near death experiences then count me out.
Fairy Land House
And you guys thought Hansel and Gretel were just a hoax. If your neighbor builds a house that looks like this, it may already be too late to get out.
Definitely do not let your kids take walks alone in the forest, do not teach them to throw breadcrumbs, and under no circumstances, do not permit them to lick stranger's houses. They may get lucky and find it's only Barbie waiting for Ken but it's not worth the risk. Once this happens, you're pretty much stuck living next to this weirdo.
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da BATMAN MAILBOX! You know that feeling when your neighbor breaks out the novelty mailbox and puts a pole right through your childhood hero?
I do. And my life will never be the same again. It may take a whole village to raise a child but it only takes one stupid mail box to kill their dreams. They better hope the mail man isn't a batman fan.
Pac Man Yard
Look at these horrible snobby neighbors with their comedic grass cutting skills, there red bricked masterpiece, their little waiting bench and freshly woven array of leaves hanging on their perfect little thread on their disgustingly clean white front door.
These guys will do literally anything to make you look bad. No one wants that. So pack yourself all up and 'adios' suckers!
Creepy Window Coverings
This is absolutely and utterly terrifying. It practically scared the pants right off me…
Who would do this? Why? WHY?? Isn't life uncertain enough?? Tell me!..... Who lets there garden shrubs grow in such an un-orderly height and fashion?! Have you no shame?? This is where an H.O.A. (Home Owners Association) comes in hand.
