“Love your neighbor as yourself” is easy to say and hard to do. Some of us are fortunate enough to have lovely neighbors who bake us homemade pies and invite us over for a barbeque (don’t worry, they have plenty of veggies to grill if you’re vegan). The rest of us are… well, far less lucky in whom we live next to.

There are neighbors from heaven and then there are neighbors from hell. They play loud music at night. They take your parking spot. They make your life miserable. And sometimes they end up on the Neighbors From Hell Instagram page, dedicated to collecting the best of the worst neighbor experiences. Scroll down and check some of these stories out and don’t forget to upvote your fave ones. Let us know in the comments what the worst neighbors you’ve ever had were like and read on for some tips on how to deal with jerk neighbors.

If you want some more content about bad neighbors, we’ve got you covered. Check out Bored Panda’s post about the funniest passive-aggressive messages that neighbors have left each other.

Wish my neighbours kids only left things over the line by 3 inches. The cycle all the way around my family's cars on my drive and keep falling off.

Real estate expert Barbara Corcoran told Today that the best way to avoid bad neighbors is to spot them early. So if you’re planning on buying or renting a new property, have a drive around the neighborhood at night to see how people in the area behave like when the sun goes down. Also, have a chat with the local store owners about what the locals are like.

However, what are you supposed to do if you’re already living next to someone who’s making your daily life hard to bear?

Well, the first step would be to set up a time to talk to your neighbor in person about what’s bothering you. The important thing is not to accuse them (people always get defensive when someone does that) but to let them know what’s bothering you and to suggest ways to solve the issue. Together.

Chances are a friendly chat or two might work. But if they don’t, talk to your local neighborhood or building association and ask them to step in. And if that doesn’t work and your neighbors continue to be aggressively disruptive, call your local precinct.

Drink it black next time you knob. Though people should realise that the most experienced burglars know the places where you're likely to hide a key and those hide a key things really aren't that hidden.

Haha, it's so American (and some other countries too) to think that "I'm not home" automatically means "my car's not home".

Even if they weren't home but the car was, they likely had their keys with them, and most people keep house keys and car keys together. Wouldn't have been able to shut the alarm off anyway...

To be fair "I'm not home" was a confusing answer. It could have meant, "I'm not home, so I can't stop my car alarm." But the neighbor's question was stupid as hell.

Just because you aren't home doesn't mean your car isn't home.

WilvanderHeijden

Even ii the car was at home, what could the owner do when he wasn't? In my country all alarms must be set to stop the siren after 4 minutes. Just sit it out and don't assume it's the neighbors car. It could be yours making all that noise.

People who start sentences with “bitch” aren’t exactly inviting me to side with them... Sounds like something my white trash neighbors would do. Actually I know it’s what they actually do.

Considering that this person is trying to enjoy a brunch usually implies friends or family are also at said brunch (which are"t cheap) and a neighbor is asking absolutely inane questions that should not have even been uttered, I think a strong adjective was justified. What would you have suggested replace it?

I can sympathize with this one. Small talk can sometimes feel like torture, so I have resorted to hiding on the upper floor when someone was waiting by the elevator on the ground floor. No damage done to anyone, so why not?

Simple solution, remove their rear license plate and replace it with a sign "I need to learn to park.". The police will surely be interested and draw his attention to this message.

Problem of this approach is that THEY know where you live, and you don't know where they'll be living.

In my country it's actually illegal to make noise loud enough to bother your neighbours before 8am on weekdays and 10am on weekends.

Feel for both. Children want to learn to play and that's perfectly reasonable. Torture to listen to though. Had a singing coach living nearby and OML it was hell for a while. Now I have a neighbour with a son who isn't very committed to learning to play the drums - so at least it isn't very often or for very long!

Breaking in if you are not on the lease or mortgage is illegal. Don't know if shitting in someones bed is legal or not but it is absolutely disgusting.
