Why don‘t you just ban him. I thought you were in control of it all.Now he's freaking talking to himself. I thought he was on the phone but then I listened and he's just free associating - talking to his grill, his picnic table, musing in general.... I heard a * thunk * and him yelling, "OW!!" really loud like he wanted to alert the whole campground that he stubbed his toe or whatever.
He has a crew of pals - they were all over there yesterday for a cookout. So it's a pack of psychos....or maybe not.....
I'm not normally a nosy neighbor because I don't care enough about strangers to spend any time on them, but this guy is forcing me to notice him. So now I've made up this whole story about him to entertain myself.
He's a semi-mental goober who never had any friends, so he's lonely and craves attention. The people over there yesterday don't even know him, he just invited them over for free beer and burgers and they were like, "Sure!" He yells weird things in hopes that someone will come over and ask him what's wrong or engage him in some way. Even screwy swingers are better than nothing, hence the pineapple.
A nicer person than me would take pity and go over to befriend him. I have learned my lesson about that sort of thing and now I don't engage with strangers I can't easily extract myself from. They're like stray cats - once you feed them you'll never get rid of them.
Well, if you'd stop picnicing on my damn lawn, I wouldn't have to yell at you.Your annoying neighbor is a problem that's temporary -- you will be gone at some point soon.
I have a neighbor as bad as this, or arguably worse, next door -- definitely bipolar, very loud, very nosey, yells at us and our kids. Not happy times.
I notified two on my neighbors that the wife and I were leaving town for a week, and to keep an eye on the house. (They both have my cell #.) I told them if the house catches fire, to throw some more wood or gasoline on it before calling me.I leave my neighbors alone, they leave me alone.
Works out great.
