Who does this?

We're currently living in a duplex while we save money to buy. Its not horrible, but in the meantime, we have to share a front yard, and mine and my neighbor's doors are cattycorner to eachother.

Our doors don't come with screen doors but the neighbors found one and put it on their door and I swear all day, their door stays open while they have their screen door closed so they can see everything.

If I walk on to the porch to go into the garage and do laundry, they see me, if we're coming home with groceries they'll sit in their living room watching us. If we have someone over, they stare. Wtf?

Does anyone else do this? Are they nosey or just weird? I find it to be nosey as hell and wish they'd juat shut their door and quit watching everything that goes on outside.

Sounds like they are nosy. Sorry, I don't think there is much you can do about it. Good luck saving money to buy a home!

I can't believe they would be ok with people looking in on them! I'd hate to have my door standing open like that. Weird.

Okay I think so too. I thought we were the weird ones. Unless my kids are outside, I don't care overall whats going on out there or who someone has over, etc.

And thanks. We're thinking we'll be ready in the next 12 months :)

No. The wife is 40 and her husband is like, 32. They're pretty trashy. Anytime we come home we can feel them watching us as we carry in groceries or something.

Are they physically at the door watching? In the spring and fall we leave our door open too, we like fresh air.

Nice! That's about our timeline to buy a home too! We're hoping to start looking at homes this coming December and find something before our lease ends in July 2014. I've already been keeping my eye on the market, but it's frustrating. Homes are so expensive where we live.

Paranoid? Nah. I just want a little privacy outside sometimes...they don't always need to see us outside, right?
