This happy young woman is being tormented by a crazy neighbor, the reason… the color of her car! Even the HOA aren’t interested. What will she try next?
She Was Gifted a Volkswagen Beetle
The Original Poster (OP) is a 22-year-old who received a sweet little Volkswagen Beetle from her grandfather when she first got her driving license when she turned 20.
They Had it Sprayed Her Favorite Color
OP was very happy that they were able to have it painted in her favorite color, as her grandfather owns an auto shop.
Pretty in Pink!
OP says even if it stops running, she probably won’t ever sell it because it’s so cute and pink.
It’s So Cute
Her car has never really been a problem for anyone; at most, she gets compliments on how cute it is.
Her Neighbor Doesn’t Like It
However, her neighbor does not like it.
Damaging Curb Appeal
About a week after she moved in with her roommates, her neighbor came over and told her that her car was an eyesore and damaged the neighborhood’s curb appeal.
Sorry, Not Sorry
OP expressed her regret that her neighbor felt that way but added she wasn’t sure what she expected her to do.
No Can Do
The neighbor requested that OP park it in the garage, but since there is only room for one car and there are three of them living here, OP replied she is unable to do so.
Just Not Practical
OP went on to say that it wouldn’t make sense for her to take the garage place since the person who parks their car works from home and they would have to pull their car out of the driveway each morning when OP would have to leave for the office.
Then, the neighbor reluctantly agreed and went back.
She Complained to the HOA
OP initially believed that was the end of it, but the neighbor later complained to the HOA, but that failed.
Making Up Excuses
They started posting on the neighborhood app, making up excuses to be upset with “the loud college kids across the way.”
Harassment and False Allegations
As of late, she has been coming outside to take pictures of OP’s car that’s parked in the driveway.
When OP saw this, she pressed the key fob, so the horn honked.
The neighbor was first frightened by it, but these days it merely aggravates her to the point where she storms back inside her home.
She’s Thinks She’s the Victim!
OP did it again today when she saw her taking a picture, and as a result, the neighbor left a note in OP’s mailbox stating that she was going to report OP for targeted harassment since she was being disruptive and childish.
Is It Targeted Harassment?
OP’s roommates believe that OP has made the situation worse by honking and that since the neighbor isn’t actually harassing OP by taking pictures, OP is being a little juvenile in her response.
She’s Done Nothing Wrong!
OP took to Reddit to ask if she was wrong for doing that, and several Redditors sided with OP and said she didn’t do anything wrong.
Call the Police
One Reddit user said that the neighbor is just being ridiculous and maybe jealous of OP’s car and that OP should complain to the police.
She Needs Reporting
Another Redditor wrote, “What you should do is report her for harassment. The best thing is that you have proof, and you can get more proof. You have the HOA complaint. You have the posts on the neighborhood app. Next step is to get a security cam to record her taking pics of your car.”
Don’t Be Petty, Collect Evidence!
A third Reddit user commented, “I think you’re being a little childish if you continue to honk the horn. You did it a few times, scared her, and let her know you were watching. Now, why don’t you write a quick note to your local police department advising them that you are being harassed by this neighbor? Be sure to list what she’s told you during your confrontations and the ways that she’s trying to get rid of you and your car. That way, when something happens, she will be the prime suspect. You could send her a copy of the letter after the cops have it.”
