His Neighbors Demanded He Go Inside When Their Kids Were in the Yard, but When He Repeatedly Ignored Them, They Took The Matter Further

A man recently asked for some advice about a request his neighbors made and what they want him to do when he’s in his own backyard. Here’s what happened.

It Was a Rural Spot

A 40-year-old man and his dog lived in a rural area with forest all around and plenty of space between each house in the neighborhood.

Sitting between the man’s house and his neighbor’s land was a pretty big pond. The man said, “Technically, it’s all on my land, but one side of it is surrounded by neighboring land.”

He Made It a Nice Place to Spend Some Time

The man liked the area down by the pond, so he spent a decent amount of time and money upgrading it, putting in a dock and some plants, and making it a nice place to spend some time.

He Was There Most Evenings

On warm evenings, the man was often down by the pond. Sometimes he’d have a drink, and it became a favorite place to do some work with his dog for company.

He Had Young Neighbors

The man’s neighbors were younger than him, somewhere in their 20s or 30s, and they had two little children who were probably between five and nine.

The man said, “Their backyard is not far from where I am in the evening, and neither yard is fenced in. Every few days, the kids come outside when I am down by the pond.”

He Was Told to Leave

Not that long ago, the kids’ parents asked the man to leave the area when their kids were playing outside because they were uncomfortable with him being there. Also, the children said they were scared of his dog.

The man was surprised at this request. After all, he never paid the children any attention. He said, “I’m usually facing away from them and never directly facing them.”

The man felt upset because the neighbors made him feel like he’d done something wrong, even when he hadn’t. As for the dog, he was always tied up, so there was no chance of him getting near the kids. He wasn’t a noisy dog anyway.

They Even Mentioned His Drinking

On top of all that, the neighbors also had a problem with the man drinking alcohol in his backyard, and they asked him not to do that either.

The man said he’d keep doing what he was doing and using his backyard in the way he wanted to, and in return, he got an angry letter from the neighbors telling him to do what they wanted.

Was He Wrong?

Was the man wrong to ignore his neighbors and stay outside when their kids were playing, or should he have done as he was asked and gone inside?

The Internet Responded

One person said, “They’re harassing you and trying to dictate what you do on your own land. Unreal.”

Another commented, “I don’t understand how they are mad at you for quietly using your own property. It’s bonkers.”
