A MAN has been left so angry after his neighbours put up a “passive aggressive note” about their dogs’ barking that he now feels like he’s got to put up a fence to block them out.
He took to Reddit to complain about the situation, titling his post: “Next-door neighbours put up passive aggressive sign facing our house.”
“My neighbours put up a sign that says ‘If our dog barks at you we probably won’t like you either’ and faced it directly at our porch,” he wrote.
“Have lived here the last three years and we pretty much can’t go outside or bring over guests without their 4 dogs (one being a loud and violent German shepherd) barking at us at full blast.
“As someone who enjoys being outdoors I’d say this dampened my enthusiasm to have them as neighbours pretty deeply.”
In addition to the note, the “wife next door is incredibly annoying”.
He continued: “She’s constantly being nosy or commenting on what I or my wife do ‘Watering the garden again?’ or ‘She’s working on the car? Why aren’t you?’ or ‘you shouldn’t use that cleaner, use this Clorox product that you just said you already tried’ .
“Like it is never a friendly conversation compliment or remark, always some kind of condescending Boomer-esque comment, criticism or suggestion based on whatever we happen to be doing at the time.
“Like it’s not enough to be annoyingly intrusive and ruin other people’s privacy, but you have to be an asshole about it and waste time and money on a sign too?
“Their yard is a literal eyesore yet this is somehow at the top of their list.”
Concluding he wrote: “Any ideas on how I should look at this?”
People were quick to comment on the situation, with one writing: “Order a ultrasonic clicker.
“When they bark, point and click. It doesn’t harm them.”
“Time to put up a fence,” another commented.
To which the man replied: “We are struggling to find a land surveyor ATM and the wife is distracted by other projects around the house but a nice picket fence to block off our yard from sight would be great.
“One day soon I hope.”
“You should put up a big sign facing their property that just says ‘OK’,” someone else added.
