Rude or not rude (2)

If someone is having their trees laced out (trimmed) should they tell the neighbors there will be men in the trees?

the trees are on their property and it is in the middle of a week day... should the neighbor have told me that they would be there? They have full view into my master bed room if the windows are open.

  • I say it would have been nice if they told you. But they didnt have to.

  • I probably wouldn't have thought to tell you.

  • If it was me having the work done at my house I don't think it would occur to me to tell my neighbors. I guess I would figure that the noise of the chainsaws would tip them off to what was going on, and it is in the daytime so I wouldn't think many people would be at home getting dressed or changing clothes with curtains open. If it was my neighbors having the work and they didn't tell me I wouldn't think they were being rude, I would just assume it didn't occur to them that the men would be able to see in my windows.

  • They were probably clueless about the whole window thing, you might want to mention it to them for the next time. Then if they do it again, consider it an act of hostility.

  • Um....I don't think that should be required...but maybe I'm wrong...we don't keep our windows open like that so for me I wouldnt care one way or the other.....I don't think it's rude but a heads up probably is nice....lol

  • It would have been better if they did but i don't think it's rude not to.

  • It would have been nice to know ahead of time, to close your curtains!! One of our neighbors always tells us.

  • I would not have thought to have done that, so I'm going to say not rude.

  • It sounds like it would have been a neighborly thing to do. But rude not to, NO.

  • Not rude. It just would've been nice if they had told you.
