Entitled Woman Doesn’t Understand How Private Property Works, Calls Police On Neighbor After She Won’t Let Her Kids Play In Her Yard

Neighbors are somewhat of a controversial subject, unless you don’t know them. Other times, you love them or hate them. And if the former happens, you’re the luckiest person out there, but sadly, the latter is pretty common too.

This neighbor drama comes from 29-year-old Redditor u/IrnBruDependant who doesn’t have her own kids but has been living with her little sister for the past ten years. “We have a trampoline still in our back garden from when she was younger,” she wrote in a post on r/EntitledParents.

Unsurprisingly, the neighbor’s 4 kids couldn’t hide their excitement seeing that trampoline as the weather started to get better. “They asked if I could let the kids use the trampoline one day, so I was like sure, but only for a bit because I have friends coming over for some drinks,” the author recounted. Little did she know, it would be almost impossible to make them leave her garden and it would end in crying.

But this was just the beginning. The author soon realized that the kids were constantly coming to play in her garden even after she repeatedly told them and their mom not to. The tension between neighbors reached a boiling point until the neighbor drama exploded.

I don't know how the laws are in the UK, but this is a hard NO for liability reasons in the US. If those kids get injured (which is almost required when playing on a trampoline) then the property owner is responsible. Yes, you are responsible for looking after trespassers.

IANAL but ISTR that taking 'ordinary care' to secure an attractive nuisance will provide substantial protection from trespassers who hurt themselves on your property. I would guess that putting a lock on it would count as ordinary care.

Mom was looking for some free babysitting, smh. It's always irked me when you see the young children sent out of the house at 8ish in the morning, to run wild in the neighborhood without being checked up on, and don't go home until dark. A lot of these neighborhoods are not as safe as they were when we were younger. We have several kids like this right now and for the past couple years. It's worrisome at times with people driving like bats out of hêll and kids running into the roads. You never know when something could happen to one of them. I would feel awful.

That's true. Trampolines come in many sizes. Including small ones that's a little over a meter in diameter.
