“Our house has a pool in the yard; it’s really nice since it does get quite hot during summers,” she added. “Our neighbor is a single mom of three; her house doesn’t have a pool, and it’s a lot smaller than ours.”

The neighbor was upset. She demanded the woman give her a valid reason why she couldn’t use the pool. The woman said she didn’t need to and that she’d call the police if they didn’t leave.

The woman was shocked by what had happened. Their pool is not overlooked. As a result, she and her husband sometimes walk or swim there without clothes. She felt like their sanctuary had been violated.

Her neighbor was upset with her. She started bad-mouthing the woman to people in the area, blissfully unaware of how her actions impacted the woman.

The woman was sympathetic to her neighbor’s situation as a single mother, but she couldn’t understand her actions. She wrote to an online forum to ask if she was right to tell the family to leave.

The internet responded

One commenter said, “If she complains again or badmouths you in the neighborhood, remind her and everyone that it is also a liability issue for you if someone were to get hurt while swimming. Just because you have a pool does not make it a friendly neighborhood pool, and she was trespassing at the least, stealing by using your pool at the worst.”

While another replied, “I can’t believe the mother actually defended this. I bet if somebody trespassed on her property and started using her amenities, she’d be changing her tune.”
