My Neighbor.

My neighbor may very well be the single nosiest person I have ever met in my life. Just the other day, he knocked on my door to criticize me for never leaving the house. Why is that any of his business? Why is he even paying attention to what I am doing? The truth is, I've been leaving the house much more lately than normal, but it's still none of his business how often I leave the house or when I leave the house, or what I do when I leave the house or when I am in my house. He asks me why I never date, he asks me why I never talk to him when all he is doing is being a "friendly neighbor." Well, to me, he's not friendly at all. He may seem to think he is, but I think he just needs to stay out of my business.

What the....? That's messed up.

Tell him your an adult and you can come and go as you see fit. Or watch him for a few days and make some kind of remark about his activity, he will get the message.

Yeah, the problem is, he doesn't consider himself to be a stranger. He thinks we should be best friends just because we live next to each other, for some reason. I don't think he would have done it if he actually considered himself to be a stranger.

I Think people like that think that they are helping in some odd way...either that or they are afraid of you since people are generally afraid of what they don't understand. whichever it is it is obnoxious and I have had similar criticisms from random strangers. I have never had someone actually come to my door though. That would have really pissed me off.

Wow, I wish I would have thought to say something like that! Great advice :D I hope I can remember something like that for the next time he does it (which I'm sure he will lol, because he's always making remarks about my reclusiveness).

I would but that would just cause more problems because he's friends with the landlord & the landlord already doesn't like me for the same reasons the neighbor doesn't lol
