Had enough of our nosy neighbor!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

So my family moved into our house a year ago and right away we noticed the old guy who lives right next to us is always watching what everyone in the neighborhood is doing. He calls the housing authority nonstop about the stupidest stuff. He has been here for 15 years so they listen to whatever he tells them.  We were forced to get rid of our dog because he kept complaining about him barking when every single dog (including his) on this street barks daily. But he still sits on his porch daily and looks over the fence and watches everything we do on our property. The last few weeks I have seen him standing so he can actually look INTO our house when our curtains are open. I have had enough of it! I feel like can't even open my curtians because then he will stand there looking into my windows and watching my son play. Does anyone have any ideas to get him to stop?


So I talked to my hubby and told him how I caught the guy just standing there watching our son play with a toy today through the open curtain. We have decided to buy some privacy film and apply it to the three large windows on that side of the house and then call the local sheriff and the housing authority and make a complaint.

Could you find me a link? I can't find it for the life of me!

Quoting allornone:


Yes. I had two huge windows in our old house that looked right into the living room we had people we didn't want to answer the door for and this helped. you have to get up super close face against the window to see in. It is applied inside and will not hurt your window.

Would we still be able to see out and allow light in?

Quoting allornone:

They sell a film at Home Depot and lowes so he can't see in your windows.

i would wave. I would go out and ask him what he is looking at. If I had the inner strength I might even stand my ugly fat butt naked in the window. 

Go out and watch him with a lounge chair and a notebook and pretend your interested in whatever he is doing? Take pictures of him moving around his house? Or just go ask him what his problem is.

Sorry he is a pain. I hope it all works out.

omg! rolling on floor

Quoting SageAdvice:

  Yes . . . start filming him watching your house and let him know you are adding him to a porn movie called My neigbor Gets Off On Watching Me Pee! and make sure to tell him thanks for all his assistance with the prior footage, That yes you know he wasn't aware BUT that you got some great shots of him peering over the fence looking into YOUR winows and the investors love his creepy look!

LMAO

trust me it will work like a charm!

yeah I've got a neighbor thats got nothing going on in his life either, so he sits and watches us through his window, he watches our comings and goings, told me my dd has gotten a gut & she needs to cut out all milk. Just recently I caught him looking in my bedroom window, now I Know he's not peeking to see me naked, he was peeking to see if I was home, because he knew it was my day off ( set days) and I pretty much hid in my house that day , to have some peace & quiet, from him. Otherwise , on my day off he bugs me & whines to me about everyone screwing him over.. ( he's trying to get a free ride , so he's applying to every government entity , and they keep denying him, saying he can work.)

Place a video camera at about your eye level, pointed toward where you usually see him peek over the fence (mount this inside). Leave it rolling for a few days to establish that what he does is a pattern. Then take that evidence to the cops. Thats creepy!

I would put security cameras out pointing at his house and make sure he sees you doing it.  I wonder how he likes getting spied on 24/7?
