He Always Helped His Neighbors Without Asking for Anything, but After One Labeled Him Lazy for Sleeping Late After a Night Shift, He Refused to Help Anymore

He moved in a few months ago

As soon as he arrived, his new neighbors came by to introduce themselves. He liked that he’d chosen such a friendly place to call home.

Yet the man still felt a little out of place. He said, “My neighborhood is pretty much 50% well-off single moms, 40% elderly people, with the remaining 10% being families.”

It didn’t take long for the feeling to disappear, however. Not only was everyone friendly, but the house was close to where he worked, and the price was just right.

They asked for help

One day, one of his neighbors knocked on the door and asked if he could fix her toilet. He said, “I went over, fixed it, and that was that.”

The next day, an older neighbor spotted the man taking his trash out. She asked if he wouldn’t mind cutting back an overgrown tree. He did that chore too.

The man said, “From that point on, a deluge was unleashed where I was asked to do stuff.” He was even asked to build an entire treehouse.

He was a chef

The man didn’t mind helping out, but he did have a job as well. He worked as a chef, which meant working shifts, sometimes until the early hours of the morning. This meant that he had a strange sleeping schedule

He got home late

One day, his shift ended late, and he was exhausted. The man said, “I got home at around 2:00 a.m., watched some TV, and ended up falling asleep on the couch, right next to my front window.”

He had a rude awakening

Around 11:00 am, there was a loud knock at the door. It jolted the man awake and also set his dog barking.

She called him lazy

The man opened his door to find an elderly neighbor there. She started calling him lazy for being asleep at that time of the morning and was mad that he hadn’t opened the door for her immediately.

She then asked for help

After she’d finished yelling, the neighbor then asked the man to go with her and fix her sink.

He slammed the door

The man refused, told her to leave, and slammed the door in her face.

The neighbors weren’t happy

Since then, the rest of the neighbors have been giving him dirty looks, and a few have even told him he was wrong to act that way.

Was he wrong?

Was the man wrong to yell at his elderly neighbor, or should she have left him alone?

The internet responded

One person said, “You were taken advantage of, and then that crazy lady got what she deserved.”

Another person said, “Put up a note saying you are not a handyman, and due to the abuse you received for sleeping after a late shift, you will no longer be offering assistance.”
