I just read an article about Awkward Neighbor Stories, and it had me in stitches!
Here's my story:
Shortly after we moved to our home up here in the mountains (about 14 years ago), our neighbor---who was a kind of creepy middle-aged single guy---made an offhand comment to me.
"You really need to get some curtains for your bathroom. I can see you when you're getting out of the shower."
Gak! I got curtains right away.
We live in a mountain development that has a minimum of 2 acres per lot. The houses aren't right next to each other---if one is built at the top of one lot, the next one is built at the bottom. There are a lot of mature pine trees on the lots as well.
But faced with that kind of confrontation, I didn't know what to think. Yes, it was awkward. VERY awkward!
A few years later, he moved, and we've had several different neighbors since then. A couple of years ago, a good friend of ours bought the house next door.
Last summer, they invited us over for an afternoon-into-night BBQ. We'd never actually been there for any appreciable time.
Anyhoo, I was telling friend's wife about creepy former neighbor, and she said, "we can't see into your house AT ALL!" So we went on a quest. We looked out of every window they had that was facing our house, and at different vantage points on their property.
The only way you could see into MY bathroom is if it was dark and you were at least 70 feet onto OUR property.
How revolting is that?
