The saying goes that you can choose your friends but not your family. You know what else you can’t choose? Your neighbors.

Have you ever living somewhere where the neighbors were so rude, annoying or even worse that you literally thought about moving just to get away from them? We’ve been there, and a lot of other people have too.

One time we lived right next door to a person who was illegally keeping a macaw on the patio outside their house. There is a certain distance you’re supposed to keep birds like that from other neighbors, especially when you keep the bird outside. This bird was a few feet from our kitchen window, and it was loud, like, screaming in the jungle calling to other birds loud. That was something we didn’t know when we moved in. 

The same neighbor also liked to throw loud parties, like hire a DJ and have a nightclub in your teeny tiny backyard loud. These parties also usually started shortly after our kids’ bedtime, and they were so loud that they would rattle the pictures on our walls.

Although we daydreamed about our neighbors moving, ultimately we were the ones who found a quieter place to live. 

We’re far from the only ones who have had to live next door to annoying neighbors. The Instagram page Neighbors From Hell is packed with stories that you’ll either laugh at or sympathize with depending on your experience.

Scroll down to read some truly crazy interactions between neighbors. You might just feel a little bit grateful for your own (hopefully not so nightmarish) neighbors.
