  • I think I remember your post about this awhile ago, but I'm still confused! Has your husband asked this man WHY these people are "watching and tracking" you? I need more details!

  • are they watching out for you, like to call in a missing person should you disappear... or are they just spying on you for dirt, and why would it be there place to do that. i would tell them to mind their own business!

  • your lacking deatail. Not all of us log in everyday to see all the questions. Could you please fill in the blanks? Why would your neighbor be "tracking" you. Isn't that kind of stalking?

  • Still not clear on what you're saying...but...

    In old school Italian families and neighborhoods everyone lives in everyone else's pockets and knows everyone's business.

  • sorry, but if people are watching and tracking you, I think it's time to call the cops and find out the laws on stalking. As for "old school italian", my boyfriend is italian and I asked him about this and what your mil said, and he said he's never heard of that. He even called his mom, and she's never heard of it either.
