30 Of The Best And Worst Stories About Having Unusual Neighbors By ‘Best Of Nextdoor’
“Love thy neighbor” sounds lovely. On paper. But it’s an extremely hard idea to follow when your neighbors act like weirdos that can’t help but get up all in your business.
Drama between folks living next to one another can (and does) arise over pretty much anything and everything. Christmas lights that are up too early. Tomato plants that some confuse with pot plants. And who can forget the classics like getting angry that your neighbors don’t mow their lawn as often as you do?
The ‘Best of Nextdoor’ Twitter page does what it says on the tin and collects the most off-the-hook examples of neighborhood weirdness from the ‘Nextdoor’ app that’s meant to be a place for neighborly concerns, updates, and complaints. Check out some of the hilarious posts below and don’t forget to let us know which ones you liked best.
Jenn Takahashi from California is the mastermind behind the entire wholesome and lighthearted project. Her efforts since 2017 have amassed her a whopping 422k ardent supporters on Twitter, 57.8k fanatical fans on Instagram, and over 29k followers on Facebook.
What started with tweeting out posts shared with Jenn by her friends eventually snowballed into a huge community that sends in funny ‘Nextdoor’ tips.
The ‘Best of Nextdoor’ Twitter account is quite the celebrity-attractor on the net—it’s drawn in some big names from all around, according to SFGate. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, model Chrissy Teigen, and actors Angela Kinsey and Rainn Wilson are just some of her more notable followers. And who can blame them? Stars have neighbors, too.
For the founder of ‘Best of Nextdoor,’ the project isn’t about the cash—it’s about the laughs. Or rather, sharing them with as many people as she can. She greatly enjoys making people’s day better and welcomes all of the positive feedback. So if you enjoyed her content, be sure to drop her a line and say ‘hi.’
Last year, Jenn would get around 50 submissions to look through each day and would narrow those down to the very best. Her rule of thumb is to look for peculiar stories that have funny and lighthearted elements to them. Anything that borders too much on the gritty side of realism is out of the question.
"I don't post anything that puts a damper on your day,” she told SFGate’s Amy Graff. Now that’s the kind of philosophy that Bored Panda can fully support.
