That's why I live in the city where everyone minds their own business ,when I lived in the suburbs I couldn't pass gas and they heard it ..lol
Ride on sister.
Iv found any neighbour, I or anyone else has had, have always tried to get a moan going. They have been nosey,gossipy and one was a false friendly neighbour who slept with her next door neighbours husband.
