Below is the random thought titled "Nosey People". Be aware that these thoughts may be based on opinion, and my opinion might not agree with yours. Also, the thought below may be based on mood, time of day, or any number of other factors. Please keep this in mind.
I was with a friend last night shooting sport rifle at a club in Aylmer (town about 40KM from London). She is about 5 years younger then I am, and looks quite young for her age. Now, I will be very clear in the fact that she's a FRIEND. That said, there was an older woman (perhaps 55-60 or so) who obviously assumed that we were "going out" and continued to stare at us and listen in on our conversations the entire time. The only issue is that she was terrible at covering it up. I would look over and then she would quickly look away. It seemed that she disapproved of our "relationship". Once I brough this to the attention of my friend, our conversation became really interesting (insert evil grin here). We put on quite a show for this woman, and of course "confirmed" her suspicians with regards to our "relationship, intimate life, fetishes, tastes, etc."
Of course it's all not true, and purely for shock value. In that respect, it worked very well. But she deserves what she gets. She has no business listening in on our conversations, staring at us when she believes we're not looking, and passing judgement on a situation that doesn't even exist.
|I have always been rather private and guarded about certain things and feel that I have the right to share when/if I feel like sharing at all and with whom. It's amazing how you're immediately labeled and judged as "hiding something" when you choose to be private. This stems from pure ignorance. At one time, I was more transparent, however, it was interesting to see how many people simply cannot be trusted or keep their mouth closed. I would get on the elevator at my job and would be questioned about something I confided in someone else. This is why I am private! I got tired of my info being repeated constantly to God knows how many people who would run to blab it to anyone else, I mean anyone. I would hear about my personal info all over, in front of my desk, in the cafeteria and anywhere else that someone needed to open their mouth. Things like "so, I heard you're...blah, blah, blah." Made me sick.|
|I've been in the hospital with my fiance for the past 10 days and everything has gone more or less well with her recovery from a tumor in her stomach and the surgery. That is until yesterday. Some old lady comes in (there is two to a room with a curtain in the middle.) I didn't care, as many people had come and gone in the time she had been recovering, except later on like at midnight suddenly I'm hearing that the lady has a problem with me being in the room. The staff was telling me I'd have to go and I responded, "Hell no, I'm staying right by my fiance's side!" Well, it wasn't quite that dramatic, but the point was the same. My fiance asks if there would be a problem if I only stayed on our side and only left with a staff escort (to the restroom and such) and they finally agree. The irony of it is I'd been doing most of the stuff that was the nurse's jobs (Because I was ensuring it was done right!) That kind of bummed me out, but, whatever, I'm still moral support. Then the next morning I wake up and she is still asleep and the old bat has her old husband (whatever, it's not like it is avoidable growing old) but then he walks past the privacy curtain and just stops there, staring in. Trying to be polite I look up at him and give him a gentle nod and a smile thinking he will get the hint and either say something or leave. He does neither, he just keeps staring and gives a soft 'I'm a bit soft in the head' smile. After a minute he goes back and starts talking about us like we can't fucking hear them through the CURTAINS... I'm like, 'What a couple of fucktards. I'm glad the lady fell and broker her hip, no seriously, the sooner we have one less person like THAT in the world the better.' FUCK OFF YOU NOSY MEDDLESOME FUCKS!|
|What can you do about nosy people ? I wish there was a cure for their nosiness.My upstairs neighbor continues to listen to my every move, he will not leave his flat until leave mine. He bangs down at night when I go to bed. Also the neighbors here are right gossips and into every one's business.I like my flat and don't want to leave unless I win the lottery but neither can I live with his constant nosiness although it helps a bit just to get steam off writing to this page about it. (Thank Ed )
(Editor's notes: Just have fun with them. Do weird things that can be easily misinterpreted.)
|My upstairs neighbor is a nosy old man. He took early retirement to sit and nose at other peoples life's. He knocks down as soon as I get home and when I go to bed he starts banging. He gives me the creeps.|
|Had a few words with a frickin' nosy neighbor lady last night. I don't know this woman at all and don't even know exactly where in the neighborhood she lives. Obviously she has a great view of my home,which I now find a bit creepy! A year ago she came over to our home (waltzing in without an invitation once the door was opened) after my SIL took out the old and put in a new privacy fence (he does handyman work for a living). She wanted to hire him to put a in a new fence for her as well. I got creepy feelings about this woman, which was later confirmed by SIL. She wanted extra work done and expected it all to be done for free...as if it was all owed to her! SIL provided a cost estimate, but never heard back from her. It mattered not to him, since he really didn't want her business (felt she would be quite difficult). So, last night this woman comes ringing my bell at 7PM, inquiring about my SIL (saying she lost his business card). I opened the door just a bit and she then grabbed the handle, expecting to enter my home! I think not! I held the door tight, blocked her entry, and thinking quickly said, "He is no longer doing that type of work." She then proceeded to ask numerous questions like, " How come?" "Where is he?" "How is he now supporting his family?" etc. I replied that she didn't need to be concerned about anything and that he was taking care of him family just fine. She started asking more personal questions and I repeated my initial response (while closing my door on her). Really?! I wanted to shout, "Get off my property you nosy, crazy loon!" Now I'm wondering if this nut case will be watching to see when SIL comes to visit so she can drop over and nose around some more. :/|
|Nosey people don't love themselves otherwise they would have enough self esteem to treat others how they want to be treated. They're silly, and they show their lack of self respect by their actions. The only excuse there is if the situation directly concerns them, otherwise they're like monkeys, or subhuman in actions. Dignity is the key here.|
|I have a nosey man or stalker in the flat above me. He listens to every move I make and does not leave his flat until I leave mine. He even waits till whatever time I go to my bed and then stomps through to his in the room above. He is giving me the creeps and there's not a thing I can do about it as he is doing all this in his own flat.|
|The Friday question: "plans for the weekend?" drives me out of my mind especially because it gets asked over and over and over again. I can't think of any reason why anyone should need to know whether or not I have plans over the weekend or what I'm actually planning on doing, if anything at all. The invasion of privacy is overwhelming and sickening. Why do I care what others do on the weekend? I spend more than enough time with them during the week and not only do I not want to know what they do at every waking hour of the day but the weekend?...Please! I just simply with them a nice weekend without asking anything. Unfortunately, this nuisance seems to be part of the culture in my workplace but the worst is that I also get asked this question by people who don't know me or even speak two words to me during the workday or otherwise. WTF? It can't just be "hi, how are you?".....the prying and 20 questions are exhausting! get a life people and MYOB! Enough!|
|when i was out side this boy was being Nosey and just kept bieng nosey his name was jordan, he is very nosey he kept staring and shid ,,,so when i to go eat something he goes and follow people to see what they are eating......im like Omg would youe stop staring...dang its called businesss get one ,....but he just keep staring...........................................................................then finally one day somebody saw him being nosey and shot jordan right in the heart and he was gone......i dinit go to his funral because he kept starring at every boddy and i just thought he had desturbed it......then one day i was like who is that lookig under that door it waz sammantha hikes from my school ..........it became anothe stocker!!!!!!!!!!|
|I have he utmost sympathy for those who suffer from nosey nieghbors.I had to move house from nosey nieghbors and lo and behold Its the same here. I have an upstairs nieghbor who listens to every move i make and watches for me going out and know s when I come home.I am devastated that after moving house to get away from nosey niegbors that I have to suffer it all over again.I hope I win the lottery one day so as I can buy a house away from that nosey man but thats only a dream so I just try to ignore him..all I can do. I had a care taker in a high rise once and I swear to God he had a pass key to my front door and went in my flat when I was out as he always watched for me going out and always snooping near my door when I opened it to go out. Why are people like this. It helps to know that Im not alone with this problem though so thanks Ed for giving us the oppertunity to share our sufferings.|
|I started thinking, why do I need a newsstand, when I have you, People Magazine!|
|NOSEY PEOPLE ARE FUCKING CREEPS|
|As a single woman, I've had to put up with some very overbearing people, crossing boundaries they probably wouldn't otherwise. I've had a caretaker who used to go into my home when I was gone, (I saw him running out the back door when I pulled in the driveway once) and would come over every day at 9 am to talk to me through whatever window gave him the best access. If I hid in the bedroom with the shades drawn to avoid him, he would stand outside yelling my name. My last landlord would take notice of my comings and goings and ask questions about my schedule and why my kitchen lights were on at certain times. Why were my lights on at 6 pm last night? I don't know. Why are you spying on me? I never noticed my old downstairs neighbor was a creep until I was putting a picture frame together, and he came upstairs, banging on the door as hard as he could. I opened it, apologized for the 5 minutes of light noise (it was 6 pm), but he remained enraged (not an exaggeration, face red, eyes bugging out,) stating "I just wanted to know what you were doing up here." He seemed to have a sense of entitlement concerning knowledge of my activities. That's when I noticed him, being completely quiet, sitting downstairs alone, no phone calls, no TV or radio, no visitors. I changed my schedule during the day (I work at home sometimes.) Surprise - he changed his. I changed it again, lo and behold, he changed his again, after 3 years of coming home at the same time. Hmmm. The walls were fairly thin, but there wasn't a lot to hear, just me working. So I moved. Now the new place I'm in is better, but I am one guarded woman now. I used to be a lot nicer; now I'm very aloof. I get it at my office as well. This is a downtown office complex with 80 tenants. I work alone there too, and I was gone for two days once and received a phone call from the management office, the woman stating, "Bill is worried about you and wonders if everything is alright." Bill was the perverted janitor (another story). He knocked on the door the next day to chastise me for being gone, telling me "to never do that again" and that I should call him next time so he wouldn't worry, giving me his cell phone number. I'm a 37 year old woman and can take care of myself just fine, thank you. That's when I bought the pepper spray. Anyway, one month in my new place, there's an on-site manager who's already showing signs of being snoopy. He makes a lot of assumptions about my schedule based on the presence of my car outside, making comments like "You haven't been home much lately," and two days ago he said he was scared of me, that I was a "vampire" because I'd been home a lot during the day the past couple of weeks and that I should "take a walk outside and get some fresh air". Sigh. It's not that big of a deal, just annoying. There are twenty apartments in this building, yet this man seems to know when I'm home and when I'm not (or at least he thinks he does.) I just resent having complete strangers monitoring me. I have no idea what my neighbors' schedules are, nor do I care, unless they're busybodies, then I'm avoiding their creepy butts. I would never pay attention to a stranger's daily comings and goings, because I run a company, am working on a personal project and have lots of friends; I've got better things to do. When I was working and going to school, I never noticed such things because I was gone a lot. The past few years since I've worked alone, I've come to realize that there are many voyeurs among us, very bored and lonely people who are watching you, particularly if you're a young woman, and they're an older man. It sounds paranoid, but after a few experiences like this, I've had enough. What gives them the right, really? I realize this isn't a strictly female phenomonon; I can only talk about my own experience. It saddens me that I've been forced to become guarded with people, but what I do and when I do it is no one's business but my own. And those people who say they're just being "curious," or "helpful," are full of it. You can help me by getting a hobby, some friends and a life of your own and leaving me the hell alone. Thank you.|
|There are several reasons why people are so nosey. But it also has to do with us being to "aware" of our surroundings, when others aren't. People are nosey because they: -Are mentally unstable (seriously need mental health support) -Are control freaks (this also fits into the mentally unstable area) -Don't have enough to fill our their day -Don't have enough information to form an opinion of you. -Love to talk to people more than the average Joe. And as such, don't have enough to talk about, so gossip is always an "easy save", to continue conversations all day/night long. -Are lonely (The older you get, the hard it is to find friends) -Hoping to find their next best friend "Thelma to their Louise" -You intrigue them, but they aren't very tasteful when asking questions (I also give a reason why I've asked someone something, so they don't have to come to their own resoning, which can be negative). These people also notice that we're being: -Secretive "Are they hiding something?" -We close ourself off to them "Why aren't they social like we are?" -Feel that we dislike them "What is it they don't like about me?" -Easily bothered, which has to do with mentally unstable individuals with control issues. All of these things help to increase their curiosity. I've met some of the most insane, nosey, controlling people in my life, and being in psychology have come to the conclusions above.|
|The person next door to me is suspicious in both senses- both suspicious of everything I do, and herself quite suspicious. I work part-time, at home during the day most of the time as I can't really afford to go out much. That person? Home all the time. Not that I care, she could be self-employed, I'm not one to judge. But it makes her suspicion of me all the more blatantly hypocritical. Anyway, I used to be up late at night, since I worked mainly evening shifts and wouldn't feel like sleeping as soon as I got home. Whenever I entered my room and flipped on the light, she'd immediately open her patio door and go out there (which is 3 feet from my bedroom window) for a better look. If in my room during the day, she does not do this, since I don't open the curtains all the way. Only when the dark/light differential makes snooping in possible does she go out there, stay out there for 5-10 minutes, then goes back and repeats again within a little while. She's so damn creepy. Creepy. Creeps me the fuck out. I've had to place clothes on the inside of my curtains until I buy new, thicker darker ones. And, despite it being my own home, which I pay to live in with money I work for, I sometimes do not even allow myself the freedom of working quietly at the computer desk after dark. I didn't have anything sinister to hide, but just like being watched while going to the bathroom, it just doesn't feel right to allow someone to monitor your usual activity. If she reads this... you're a creep! CREEP

|Nosey people should spend more time in thier own buisness,then in everybody else's.|
|Me and my daughters have always been personal people and I myself am very careful what information I give out even to my age. We have never had a real nosey neighbor problem before because most of the neighbors in the apartment building were working people and did not devoted all their entire day wondering why my daughter who is in her 30's wasn't working and at that time she had cancer but I didn't feel I needed to tell them this nor our exact ages. We speak, respect neighbors property, do not make excess noise to annoy neighbors. I have even given one neighbor's granddaughter christmas gifts and cards because I have given kids at the center down the street gifts as well and there parents didn't seem to feel NOW YOU ARE OUR FRIEND AND WE MUST KNOW ALL YOUR BUINSESS. I LIKE CHILDREN NOT NOSEYADULTS . THE SAME NEIGHBOR AND MY COUSIN BY ADOPTION TALKS WITH A FEW OTHER LADIES BY MAIL BOX GOSSING ABOUT EVERYONE IN THE BUILDING EACH DAY AND THAT'S INCLUDING DISCUSSING HOW WE THINK WE ARE CUTE. I AM A PERSON WHO MINES MY BUSINESS AND I HAVE NO INTEREST IN WHAT IS GOING ON IN EVERY APARTMENT IN THE BUILDING, WHO IS DATING TWO GUYS AROUND THE CORNER AND JUST A LOT OF USELESS INFORMATION AS FAR AS ME AND MY DAUGHTER'S ARE CONCERN. SO SEVERAL MONTHS AGO THE ONE I GAVE GIFTS TO LITTLE GRANDDAUGHER, WHEN I PASS THE GOSSIP GIRLS IN HALLWAY, SHE'LL SAY I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING AGAINST mS. m SHE'S VERY NICE BUT SOME PEOPLE MIGHT FEEL THEY ARE STUCK UP BECAUSE THEY DON'T TALK MUCH BECAUSE THEY ARE LIGHTED SKINNED. FIRSTOF ALL THE LITTLE GRANDDAUGHTER OF HERS IS MY SAME COMPLETION, SECOND MY YOUNGEST DAUGHTER IS MEDIUM BROWN AND I HAVE TWO DARK SKINNED SILBINGS AND HAD AVERY DARK FATHER. I HATE A STUPID REMARK LIKE THAT AND IT WAS PROBABLY SAID BEHIND MYB ACK WHICH IS RIDICULOUS BUT WHEN YOU TRY TO PLAY ME WITH A SO-CALLED COMPLIMENT THEN BACK IT UP WITH SOMETHING AS RIDICULOUS AND INSTULTING AT THAT DUMB STATEMENT. I HAVE ALWAYS HAD PROBLEMS WITH CO-WORKERS THE FEMALES ABOUT GETTING OFFENDING BECAUSE I REFUSE TO GIVE THE PERSONAL DETAILS ON MY LIFE. WHY DO THIS FOOLS ALWAYS FEEL THAT JUST BECASUE YOU WORK WITH PEOPLE OR LIVE IN THE SAME NEIGHBORHOOD YOU ARE AUTHOMATICALLY BEST FRIENDS. I DON'T KNOW ABOUT ANYONE ELSE BUT I HAVE CERTAIN QUALITIES I EXPECT IN PEOPLE WHO I CONSIDER TO EVEN BE A PLATONIC FRIEND? SO I GOT SICK OF THEM AFTER THEY JUST STARTED TELLING BLADEN LIES LIKE MY SAFEWAY DELIVERY GUY DAMAGE THE WALLS, DROP A SPOT OF BLEACH ON A DOOR MAT OR STUPID STUFF LIKE HE STEPPED ON MY DOOR MAKE AND TRACK SOMELEAVES UP HERE. THEY EVEN GOT THE LITTLE GIRL ONLY 8 TO TRY TO GET OUR AGES. I CAN'T STAND ANY ADULT WHO USES A CHILD TO TRY TO BE NOSEY. AFTER NINE YEARS OF BEING EXTRA POLITE AND CONSIDERATE THESE NOSEY NEIGHBORS. I JUST HAD IKT WITH THEM GOING AROUND TELLING PEOPLE THE REASON I DON'T WANT THEM IN MY PLACEIS BECASUE IT IS NOT CLEAN? THERE IS ONE THING NOT CLEAN AND THAT IS MOSTLY DUE TO MANAGEMET NOT REPLACING THAT DIRTY OLD ALMOST TEN YR OLDCARPET. BUT OTHERWISE MY APARTMENT IS DECENT NOT AS PERFECTIONATELY CLEAN AS MY COUSINS WHO WAS A MAID ALL HER LIFE AND THAT WOULD BE EXPECTED FROM HER PERFECTIONATELY CLEAN. MY APARTMENT NEVER HAS DIRTY DISHES, TRASH IS REMOVE EACH DAY , WALLS ARE CLEAN AND I WASH OUR CLOSE ALLT HE TIME. THIS DOES NTO SOUND LIKE DIRTY PEOPLE. THEY ARE SO ANGRY BECAUSE I TOLD THEM ON A NOTE IN BLACK AND WHITE SO AS NOT TO TWIST AN Y OF MY WORDS THAT THEY WERE NOSEY, GOSSIPING WOMEN WHO ARE ALWAYS TRYING TO CAUSE TROUBLE WITH NEIGHBORS LIKE US WHO WANT NO PARTOF YOUR GOSSIPING AND LIES AND BEING TOOTHFACED ABOVE ALL. I THEN ENDED BY SAYING STOP TRYINGT O ASK US PERSONAL QUESTIONS, WE ARE NOT GOSSIPERS AND DON'T TELL US ANYTHING ABOUT OTERS ACROSS THE STREET OR IN OUR BUIILING WE JUST DON'T WANT TO HEAR THIS. MAYBE IF YOU HAD SOME OTHER INTERESTING CONVERSATION WITHOUT INSULTING OR SAYING UNTRUE THINGS ABOUT EVERY NEIGHBOER...JUSTLEAVE US ALL ALONE PLEASE AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO SPEAK EACH DAY BECASUE BEING POLITE IS IN OUR CHARCTER.|
|i'm disabled due to a sleep disorder.unemployable.i have fun with nosy neighbors.i live in an apartment complex and i 've collected total disability since i was 21 for this disorder.am now 54 but appearance wise people always think i'm in my mid 30's when they meet me.i look quite young for my age/.neighbors began to catch on to the fact i don't work not long after i moved in to this complex/.i'm a night person and i sleep days.so i walk my dog outside about 4 times a night and i come and go and drive in and out at night.but all very quietly! long story short,some neighbors were calling the police on me as being suspicious when i was out at nights and the police finally just got so if they're called they roll through,nod at me and smile and then go to their next call. i got so i now open my blinds at night(about 8 or 9pm and leave them open all night..home or gone. i'll OFTEN times see a neighbor (not always the same one)standing on their porch or by their car in the parking lot standing there gazing over here at my window as late as 1, 2 and even 3am.they don't attempt to be friendly otherwise.i don't hang with people my own age,in fact my current 'date' is late 20's almost 30.(uh oh..a 54 year old man molesting a little girl!!!!)..what do we have in common btw? i've always listened to current rock so we both listen to green day,flyleaf,coldplay,etc..always loved horror movies,sci fi and love stories,etc so we watch the same movies.it's amusing to me when judge hatchett or judge judy will say to a couple whose ages are vastly different , "what could you two POSSIBALLY have in common??". maybe music and movies??personality?? dogs and cats? that's all it would take for some people to get along///.about apartment living noise..i've learned that society as a whole has become accepting of the fact that a large handfull of people work odd hours and either get off work late at nights or work all night and get off in the days and sleep.this is 'common' nowdays.to the degree that apartment managers and owners ,as well as many local policeman tend to have more leniency and 'understanding' toward these people when they're complained about at night!! because of this kind of new 'understanding' people in authority have regarding late night noise makers,we'll eventually see laws created that will make calling about noisy neighors at 2am a discrminitory action/.i've already met quite a few people who,when i mention late night,2am noise,make comments like "well you know they don't get off work til that time of night,right?that's their daytime". this kind of tolerance among society is spreading and mostly among 20 somethings./but it's 20 somethings that make up most of apartment dwellers and that will eventually make up most of the work force/.|
|There is this girl at my school, and we are the same age, I've literally known her forever, yet she is short and looks very young for her age. I believe you know OF her. I cannot stand next to her without others thinking I'm going out with a 12 year old. It's all these chi-mo people with messed up minds going around. People are stupid.|
|it's not just nosey people, this is a very, very very long story, about 25years worth and it's not just about nosey neighbors but the wheels they set in motion and in many cases the unbelieveable continual damages they cause. In my case I ask every one who reads this, please out of deserved respect for the pain and suffering I've gone through and am still going through, google my name and read as much as you can about the order of events that happened to me in order to truly try to understand my side and interpatation of the abuse before making any kind of comments that might be contrary or to suggest any remedies, because I don't think I 've met anyone who can truly know what this continual pain continues to feel like, knowing there is nothing I could have done to have stopped it, except by having A stand by ARMY to stop the damages from have ever happening. Simply put most people like living in clean looking neighborhoods and I would have chosen a warehouse if I had had enough money but I was persacuted by zoning officals, sicked on me by a minority of complainers in any neighborhood I've ever been in, it went on and on to to point of attempting to end my pain by ending my life, now many of you may say nothing is worth ending your own life, but after reading just a very SMALL PART of my past history you may decide differently, BUT WHAT most people don't know anything about is what great things were going to come for the human race if I had been left alone to continue my work in peace, it was as if an invisible war had been declared against me. and instead of anyone trying to find a NON-DESTRUCTIVE SOLUTION to my delimma, the many powers that be just applied their many forms of prejudice not caring how they continually kept me in poverty by applying their oppressions to my life not careing that it was going to push me into taking my own life because I have been made to feel absolutely worthless and with that said I am sure the crappy media who has blacklisted me won't care either. but if I were all of you I would be worried, if there is an after life and if you may be held accountable for the blood soaked tax dollars you all have been paying for years that went to the U.S. military that went to kill innocent men, women, and children babies, in these wars and police actions that have gone on, If I were all of you, I wouldn't gamble with the UNKNOWN, because you only have a 50-50 chance of winning or loseing, I know with my own life is the only life I have a right to end and I have NEVER paid US taxs to ensure I don't take that chance when I die. nosey people,neighbors,law enforcement,inspectors, smile to your face, stab you in the back people should all be put on an island naked stranded just the same way they stranded and exposed me to undeserved persecution simply because they chose not to find a better alternative to their control freak eye sore fanatic behavior. thanks everyone for not haveing a more compassionate social order, yes you help hati, chile but forced on me homelessness by the very same country that ignores me and my small forced on me problems, NO! you just don't care!|
|SHE WAS DOING NOTHING WRONG. A GOOD SAMARITAN I WOULD SAY. YOU STATE YOUR FRIEND LOOKS YOUNGER THAN SHE IS FOR HER AGE. THERE ARE A LOT OF CHILD ABUSE/MOLESTING CRIMES OUT THERE THAT NEED THIS ATTENTION.
(Editor's notes: Of course, how could I not have known? Whenever two people of different ages hang out, the younger one must be molested by the older one! Duh, how could I have been so stupid?)
|I had a director that I worked with who was up my rear end about everything all the time. If I was putting on lip balm at the end of the day I would get "hot date?" as she walked by and if I had so much as a mint in my mouth..."what are you eating?"....it was so sickening, and, in addition to that, she was always looking for gossip. I finally had it one day, went into her office, exploded and in a menacing manner got in her face and told her to mind her own effen business-that I was sick of her sticking her nose in my personal life. It was brutal but I got my point across. She brought me bunch of flowers and card the next day, apologizing for her snooping and from then on....no more prying. We're cordial now but not everyone is so lucky, I know. It was unreal but I had to do something about it.|
|I don't understand it cause I'm not rich. My neighbors want to see what I buy too. And even though I keep to myself at work, there's always some co-worker (FROM ANOTHER DEPT.) watching what I do AS IF they're my BOSS. I've even had rude comments thrown at me about the way I do my job even though I GET GOOD REVIEWS from my REAL BOSS. I would never want to stay in a job if I couldn't do it properly. That would slow the place down. Nosey people think they know everything and act as if they are jealous at times.|
|Some old people are lonely cos they cannot get out much and most of their friends have died they carn,t always help it but some others are just control freaks and lack morales and are plain rude and best avoided and ignored that way if they do not get a response they have no power over you. It is their problem not yours feel pity for them really cos their lives must be so boring and they do not have the courage to change it.|
|In my apartment building i use to put up with three nosey,gossipy neighbours,until one day i got fed up,i walked past these people one day ,while they were in thier gossip mode in the hall in front of my apartment door,i flew open the door and mooned them,iv never in all my 10 yrs of iving in that apartment building heard such silence ,they never talked gossiped about other people in front of me again.|
|my neighbors are extreme maximum perverts i am being spyed wireless buged these men sem to get off on watching me in my no longer private bedroom and by the way i am a male also and the refer to me as the not so nice word for gay starts with F you get the idea wink wink this has gone on for months a woman has been involved also an old woman no less and she and the men HA HA cal me a pervert|
|I'd like to know why I end up answering nosey questions about my personal life ?? usually this happens when Im trying to make new friends and feel the need to let them know who Iam. I find myself answering their questions. But, I feel that I can get to know a person without finding out how much they make, what they do, or how much they pay for their residence. How do you handle meeting new people for friendship without having to reveal information you'd rather not tell someone about ?|
|I have a nosey co=worker. I call her a back end hawk. We are supposed to work in the back of the office. However she finds a way to be in everything. She cannot walk pass anyone who is doing anything and not take note. She too, quickly looks away when I catch her looking. I wish I had an ice pick and could pluck out her eyes. Nosey people are so intrusive. And the kicker is her personal life is all messed up. She had a 22 year old daughter who didn't graduate high school, got knocked up twice, went through tens of thousands of dollars in an inheritance, and is on drugs. Dyfus is looking to take her kids away and I hope they do. And the nosey co-worker has enabled this kid, her daughter to do drugs, giving her money, watching her grandkids to give her drug ridden daughter a break, from childrearing, even though she the druggie doesn't work. Mommy and Grandmommy take care of everything. The real kicker is my co-worker even gave her daughter an excuse to Dyfs to get out of a drug test. How sick is sick? Oh did I mention, her husband is an ex-druggie and her stepson is in jail for beating up a mexican. A hate crime. But yet she is all about trying wipe everybody's nose and ass before they sneeze or shit. The chick is sick. Real sick.|
|I can relate to the posters who have nosey coworkers. These nosey people really tick me off. I worked at a discount store last year and there was one coworker who was simply awful. I hate to be mean but I really loathed her. The funny thing is that I initially liked her and we got along, but over time I realized how nosey she was and I started to dislike her. I really started to dislike her because of her gossiping ways. I realized that as soon as anyone told her something, it was in her ears and out of her mouth. I also realized that any time I needed help with something, I would have to explain why and defend myself to her and she wasn't even my boss. One time, she rearranged all of the chairs in the breakroom so that she would be able to see everyone who came into the room to take their break and be able to talk to whomever happened to come into the room. I think she may have done this because I had a habit of coming into the breakroom and taking a table that no on else was sitting at because I liked my privacy and sometimes I wanted to take a break without having to talk to whomever else was in the room. It got to the point where I made the decision to simply avoid her but because of the working environment, that wasn't possible. Also, people like this crave attention and want to bring you down to their level. If they are nosy and like to gossip, then they want you to be the same, other wise they won't feel good about themselves. With these kinds of people, I think that you have to be really mean to get your point across, other wise they just won't get it. One thing that I can say about myself is that I know how to keep my mouth shut and mind my own business. If someone tells me something, I assume that it is for my ears only, even if that person didn't say that the information was a secret. I also don't care about other peoples' business unless what they are doing is having a direct negative impact on me.|
|I think it is great you can ignore her its bloody hard though the one next door is always watching me she even went to social services a social worker told me she keeps phoning her and the social worker told her to go away. I think at the end of the day she is giving herself a bad reputation. I really dislike her but feel sad someone has to be like that.|
|I have read the previous posts, I can relate, My husband and I have lived in our home for 10years now, and have never had a problem with our nieghbors, until now ! we had a new family move in next door, and (as friendly neighbors) we introduced ourselves.. we are very private people, now our new nieghbors hang over our fence to say hi and what we are doing, I have witnessed them looking into our patio windows!! I was really alarmed by this..and want to put a stop to this asap. I disscused my feelings with my husband, whom felt what I felt!!my husband said to the nieghbor ," we like our privacy and we want to respect your's , " so we are putting up a privacy lattice asap. we have set boundaries, now!! when we come home and are spotted by them starring or walking over.. we walk away, we say hi and walk away. If we are in our yard the nieghbor has tried to talk through the fence, we ignore him. this has really worked!! We carry on as always. people have understand that you don;t have to be friends!! a quick nod is suffient enough. It seemed hard at first, and you don't want to hurt anyone feelings, but guess what!! people need to know your boundaries!!!|
|I agree. Nosey people do Suck. They have nothing else to do but signify. My in-laws are always asking how much I make and want to know how much money my hubby and I spend. If you are not going to help me, DON'T ASK!!!|
|i have a aunt who was ease dropping didnt hear everything i guess cause my mother confronts me today about it i told her what i said but aunti added the rest.some people just dont care and love to spy and run there mouths not caring who they hurt my mother want speak to me cause of some load mouth nosey gossip queen who only heard half the story|
|we have very nosey neighbours, she, the she devil thinks she owns the village, we had fencing put up by the council, on her side it was for maintanance only to her property, she has taken the main boundry wall down, now her dogs run up and down there all day and bark, close to our bedroom window, she looks over the fence and looks out on the road side looking into our place, she put a notice up calling everyone around her perverts and peeping toms, she is mental, she looks into your property with her nose stuck so far into the air im sure birds will love to land on it, she is so nosey, she also calls every who parks on the road idiots as she beleves that the are damaging ther cars, what an idiot,she has a son who when at home and his parents are out has the music on so loud it rattles all of our windows and we are semi detached from her property, the have forced every neighbour before us out, we are not moving for the likes of her, she can get over it, pull her head in and keep her small minded opinions to herself she is the real neighbour from hell, she just cant and wont leave us alone, my husband had his hip replaced not long ago, she complained about our shed to the council, saying it was blocking her light it was blocking her vew into our garden, that was before the fence went up, my husband had to move the shed weeks after having his hip done, dose anyone care no not at all, you are on your own to deal with people like her, she has caused us so many problems and she is still doing it, i wish they would go away and leave us alone.|
|Their is a different I think between being curious, we all have a natural curiousity, but when someone is always watching others they must have no purpose in life, and that is not healthly. When someone gossips and puts others down to others, that is just plain vindictive, its also arrogant. I think people are our teachers and their a lesson to be learn. For instance from the experience of having a nasty neighbour next door, I have learnt not to react to people. I remember once I found the neighbour next doors cat in my shed dead, they had left it outside in the cold in the winter, and it came in my shed for shelter. Well she came round my house to complain one day cos she said I did not like her and did I have a problem and I got angry, expassilly after seeing the cat, I got angry and had a go back. Eventually I saw a counsellor at the doctor surgery, and he said her and her mate had nothing better to do in their life. I started to ignore her all the time, although she did alot to get my attention. Chucking rubbish in my garden all sorts. Eventually I phoned a prayer line, and they said to pray for them for two minutes each day, and in a few weeks I would see changes. In two weeks the woman left and never returned.|
|No, I have to admit a great majority of "white" people are nosey and my wife is white, she'll even admit it. They don't use the word "nosey" just "curious." Example, have you ever noticed a traffic jam due to "rubber necking?" Rest, assure those majority of people slowing down are guess, who? I just think it is a part of their culture as "green beans." That is just their thing...|
|I had a neighbour who watched me come in watched me go out. Watched my kids and they did awful bad things to me, like steal stuff out of my garden like my kids trampoline and supergulue my locks. she would phone social services go and tell the headmistress at the school things about me, even phoned the rspca and the gas board, got all my gas cut off. Threw dog shit over my windows, tried to get over neighbours involved, like another nosey woman. She was just such an arrogant person, She was the bad one though, cos my friends neice told me she left her kids on their own all night with a stranger. She had alot of past as well, and said she was trying to be good now. Well if htis is what she called good. She looked respectable because he garden was immaculate, but it was all a fraont, I ended up having to see a counsellor her and her fella got me down so much. She was two faced as well. Their is something psychologically wrong wth these sort of people I think, because they feel the need to do this and why can they not get a life. In the end i phoned a prayer line and someone told me to pray for them for 3 minutes each day and in a few weeks I would see changes so I did it and do you know she left and has not returned and do you know I cannot believe it. I do find that I have some anger over the trouble she made and her fella, these nosey interfering types are sick really in the head. Remember they are not just doing it to you they are doing it to other people. She was everso lonely, she had one friend and she left and no one ever spoke to her. They are not independant. They have not mentally grown up and dependant upon others. I think their must be things that have happend in their past to make them weird like that. She was the most arrogant person always looking at others and she was only in her 20, s but she used to walk around the streets half the day with big black bags picking up rubbish. Really strange, I would not have time to do that. My advice to anyone is to ignore them, its flippin hard I know but live your life, what does it matter what people say, theirs friends, family people who love and accept you so don,t let the buggers get you down. They dont, have real true friends in their lives and one day they will die and look back on their lives and what did they do, how much good did they do, they live selfish lives and selfish people end up lonely unhappy people. They should be less around more brave and sort themselves out see a counsellor or someone. Whatever what comes round goes round.|
|Hi, I recently had a guest who was over at our place for dinner. She insisted to use our masterbath instead of the powder room. Well! what to say!!! I let her but she went through my vanity and also snooped into our closet which is inside the bathroom. I came to know because the vanity door gets stuck if you don't close it by lifting it a little!! I am so bothered .. should I say something when I see her next time....|
|i am on the verge of calling my nosey neighbour a "dirty old pervert". I cannot move around my garden without being watched. I erected brushwood screening along the boundary fence to provide myself with some privacy whilst sunbathing. since then he has decided to climb up his step ladder every weekend to allow himself a better view. I think this behaviour must be illegal. Should I call the police next time to see him staring over the fence line? or shall i tell him to piss off?|
|I agree nosey interfering people are lonely people theirs lifeís are so boring they have to nose into everyone elseís. Iím 25 yrs old with a disability. People cannot butt out of my life even. Have told people severely times too. That I have a mind of my own and will make my own decision. I got to the stage where I hate going to stay at peopleís place coz they extend what Iíve said or made the story up to cause problem. I think it is a bit of jealous too. Warning never full out with anyone, you have told things to that you donít want out coz they will chuck it back in your face.. If you have a problem and not sure on whom to trust tell one person only then if it gets out you know who did it. Nosey people need to let a life.|
|I am going to nursing school with a woman whois very nosey. I sent my teenage son to live with his father and she has a lot of opinions. I think she likes to gossip in a derogatory way. I really don't think my life is any of her business, I certainly do not have any interest in being friends with her. I think nosey people are unhappy with their own lives and have to find something wrong with someone else's to feel better.|
|This guy I used to date gave us a computer as a gift. At the time, what we did not know, the computer was embedded with spyware and a keylogging system. To everyone out there who is not familiar with a keylogging system... every single keystroke you make; including all your passwords and your identity can be stolen. He used it for his own personal gain to find out what I was doing when he was not around. Yes, he was very insecure, and obviously had way too much time on his hands. Every single time we had an argument, for some strange reason my computer would not work properly, so I had to call him up for help. This goes way beyond Curious / Nosey. How about "Internet Crimes" and "Cyber Stalking?" "Invasion of Privacy?" In the end, I did outsmart him - as he did not think I knew a lot about computers. :)|
|I moved to San Francisco over 6 years ago, and about 3 years ago, the owner who used to live in the flat above me sold her house, and the new owner rented it out to two older ladies. Now I've had ongoing roommate problems which have recently ended rather trajically when my last roommate committed suicide, but during that time he used to tell me while he was home during the day how these ladies would snoop about our open windows to listen in on what we're doing and our conversations. Now my thing is, these ladies have major issues with any man living in the apartment below them (I'm female, and my roommates were male). I got rid of one roommate who kept bringing people over when I was at work, and that's what set off these ladies doing 24/7 surveilance on my apartment. Even after he moved out, my other late roommate and I couldn't even have a pizza delivered without someone runnning down the stairs checking out who was there. Now that I live alone these ladies are checking me coming and going from my own apartment, and get very put out if I come home late or have any male guests at my house. They stand in the garage in front of my apartment and can hear me breaking wind let alone talking on the phone, and God forbid if I'm talking to "A MAN!!!!'" What anal retentive, no-life, freaken coakroach hags!!!!! They start running acros the floor above me in heavy shoes, dropping objects on the floor at 4am, slam doors repeatedly, turn on the empty washing machine in the garage so it makes this obnoxious "thunk, thunk" noise late at night like they're drying a bowling ball, and stand in front of their open front door talking crap about me, usually saying that I'm a drug addict, a whore, a freak, a drug dealer, a dangerous violent criminal, anything they can make up. My late roommate once told me that while sitting on the toilet one of them stood by the window listening, and made some stupid comments. One also stomped down the stairs swearing out loud that she was going to do whatever it takes to get me and anyone living there kicked out. She wanted no one living below them. I bet they'd like to use my apartment for storage or something...whatever!!!! I wrote them a polite letter asking them to please give me peace especially after the suicide, No dice. Then I complained to the Tenants Union, and finally to the Landlord, who said he would "talk to them." They've been really quiet, but since they can hear me, I can also hear them, and one night I heard, "Every night, she comes home late, yeah...and have you noticed how fat her (referring to me) butt is getting?" What legal recourse do I have with this situation, being my only witness who can back me up is dead? You know, I could swear that the night the coroner came to take him away after I found him when I came home from work, I could hear one of them laughing. I wonder why these women don't think anyone living in the apartment below them are human beings with rights!!!!!!|
|To Kim who says that maybe nosey people are just interested in people.......and that you're just a curious bugger. I for one don't think theres one thing wrong with being curious and wanting to know more about a person, BUT...when that person then takes the information they received and twist it around or try to make the person look bad then theres a problem. Curious buggers are ok in my book.....as you said you don't spread it around.....but vicious gossip mongers who nose into your business so they have something to spread and whisper about are really sad people in my opinion. I can pretty much tell the curious buggers from the gossip mongers in just one or two conversations. YES! The gossip mongers give themselves away! A person who gossips to you (nasty gossip of others) will gossip OF you! Hang in there everybody and stand your ground against those nosey people. Mabye just pretend they dont even exist....hard i know...but not impossible....Good luck to those with nosey, nothing better to do, hobbyless, neighbors with big eyeballs and mouths that never SHUT UP!!!....|
|There has always been at least one nosey control freak at every job I've had. It is one of my pet peeves for sure. I hate it when I'm looking for someone or something in the office and the nosey person calls out (in a snotty motherly voice) "What are you looking for?" It's rude. Dont talk to me as if I'm a child! If I wanted your help I'd ask for it. Sheesh!! I'm guessig they have control issues. Now as for me, I'm going to try to convince myself that this person is just a sweetheart that wants to be helpful. Thanks for listening,|
|I live in nyc and have two nosey neighbours in my building. i have 2 roommates, i work from 5 am- 10 pm, so i rarely see anyone. The old man who is about 76, asked my roommate why i walk to the left when i leave my building rather than the right, my roommate didnt know what to say and just said i like the walk better. Then he said oh thats because black people must bother her when she walks to the right. Seriously this guy is nuts. He also saw my other rommmate and put his hand in the air and asked her how high have i gotten in life. Then there is a woman who i thought was nice but really nosey.. Last i saw her she asked me if im still living there. i say yes. and alot of personal questions. I didnt like it so after that i avoided seeing her,, then she asks my roomates all the time if im still living there cause she doesnt see me after they have told her 10 times i am. She also sits across the street at night, watching the building. I think shes waiting to see me.|
|maybe nosey people are just interested in people... i know i am. i'm a curious bugger! i ask zillions of questions! haha. i just like to know the reasons behind things and why people are how they are. they don't need to tell me, i'm not going to spread it around, i just like learning about people. maybe it's because i come from a big nosey family and we all like to know each others business :P but it's just because we care about each other and are interested in what's going on in each other's lives. so yeah, some people are nosey, and some are curious! hopefully you all know the difference!|
|I luv nosey ppl they stick there own nose up other ppls HAiry butts and they sniff It!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!|
|YEA!! I am seperated from my husband, and i try to play nice however he knows that i've moved on and he still comes over to my house when no one is there. Ive recently found out that when he comes over he gets on the computer and looks up the web sites i've been on, to see where ive been going or where im going to go.... what a crazy asshole!!!!!!!!!!!! Nosey people need to keep to there self, miserable people love company. So if you are one of those types of people keep your shit to your self and move on with your damn life. PS: When your husband IS GOOD FOR NOTHING it is a wounderful feeling to be cared about and to care back from someone who is a great man and for that I LOVE YA TONY!! NOSEY PEOPLE GET A GIRL AND A BED...and do the damn thing!!!!!! xoxoxo

|I have a horrible neighbors. Let's call them "The BLOCK-heads". I live in a high rise in Chicago and the husband, in his 60's, is semi-retired from a furniture business at the Merchandise Mart, with nothing else to do as a hobby but to conduct covert operations to spy on my every move. It's terrible. I am certain he has listening enhancing devises and is somehow monitoring my Internet access (we have phone closets open to anyone in our building and AT&T just recently pulled an additional pair of wires off of mine). His wife is a HUGE liar. She works for a major Airline and when I confronted them about their covert listening actions, she said "What?! I dont even know how to use the Internet!". I hadn't said anything about the Internet prior to that, only that he is likely using sound enhancing devises to monitor me. She also yelled out for him to come to the foyer, knowing he was home (square footage is like, 1200 sq. feet), and he didn't respond, pretending he was not there. It was dinner time and they were getting ready to eat. She had the table set and the food smelled done. So he calls from a cell phone, perhaps while in a closet hiding, and shouts so I can hear it, I'm at work and will be home soon. So, I run down to the garage to see if the only car they have, which our valet and janitor confirms he drives when he goes to work, was THERE PARKED IN THE GARAGE! Why the need to lie if you're not covering something up?!!! Also, our high rise has concrete floors (they live above me), 5" plaster walls with a metal mesh in the center. In the 9 years I have lived here I have NEVER heard one of their conversations. It's sad and sick to think these losers has nothing else to do with their time than to spy on innocent people and we live on Lake Shore Drive! Don't you think they'd have some class and act like mature adults? Dirty, rotten, rats. I can only hope that justice will be served by "what goes around comes around". If anyone has any ideas on how I can catch them, to offer proof, please let me know. Thanks.
(Editor's notes: Sounds like you have issues as large as they do...)
|I wrote in about a year and a half ago, now these people have been caught peeking out thier blind at us, I just wave when we drive by to let them know we are on to them, I've blocked their email so they could get the hint as one of them had tagged our computer, I've changed locks and even have installed cameras. She walked into my house about a year ago when my youngest son had the car and she thought we weren't home, SURPRISE we were. We should have called the police................|
|I recently moved to a new town. My partner is working away and the people next door were welcoming and this was nice as i was new to town and they gave a sense of security, little did i know it would turn into the biggest disaster ever, there are three males living thier and they have no jobs so i am thier job. They kept turning up drunk at night so i put a lock on my front gate, then they started jumping the gate,they always stick there nose over the fence. I had had enough so i got my partner to ring them and tell them not to jump the gate and back off, now im the biggest bitch and they take turns staying up and throwing rocks at my bedroom window so im scared and tired,they are cowards, my man will be back home 4 good in three weeks and he is a man,lets see what they do then? also with gossips i have a good solution, tell them a lot of bullshit make it outrageous, that will give them a lot to talk about buts its all crap
(Editor's notes: Call the police?)
|I and my partner are in our early thirties and have two small children....My man is a know professional in the local area and is the nicest kindest person you will meet. I on the other hand am direct and tend to always say what I think and get peoples backs up....... However we were happy until we moved to where we are now. We have a older couple living next door and if I can hear them drawing their curtains and turning their lights off I dread to think what they can hear. I wont even have an arguement or sex with my man in fear that they are listening. During the summer we cant even be in our own garden as they have there ears to the fence until the sun sets and if I have people over then they open their windows to listen ..... they know our every movement and they are probably forming an opinion on the fact that it is 1am and I am tapping at my keyboard.... they pass judgement on everything and everyone and they listen to everything they can and feel in the gaps.... It is truely horrible.... they have turned me into a crazy person that obsesses about them and what they hear and how they must be judging me on my every movement and I have been a prisoner in my own home. They look to my children for info and It is truely a living hell...they spread rumours and it is really unpleasant to have someone anaylising your every move.... Even my partner is sick of hearing about them....but when I have them in front of me I cant help but be polite when in fact they must get the gist that..........I HATE THEM emmensly... I just want to be back to my fun loving self and have some hard core sex again to really give them something to talk about....
(Editor's notes: Either don't care, or tell them to fuck off. There is no inbetween and you have no right to complain unless you choose one.)
|What is bad is when one nosy neighbor living across the street goes and spreads B.S. about you to other neighbors down the street, then there is a daily caravan down to your house, making you uncomfortable as all get out! FIND OUT WHO YOUR NEIGHBORS ARE BEFORE BUYING A HOUSE!!|
|some people need to mind their own business i can't stand nosey people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!|
|I work with a nosey co-worker. Not only nosey, but hates to see people get along and work well together, like trading shifts to help each other out. She (jody) checks everyones vacation time and paysheet signatures. She is really a sad case and just getting older and meaner.|
|I thought i was the ony one with irritating nosey neighbours, but having listen to everyone else its common. The best thing to do is not respond to these people and just ignore them its hard i know, but if they know they have your back up they like it, because they need excitment as their own life is boring. Sure is weird though i don,t understand why some people do not get a life, whats enjoyable about living like that. Its not really our problem its theirs so the best thing is not to react to it. Its difficult though because you feel like shouting out piss off , well i do. i got very nosey neighbour and she is vindictive. These sort of people tend to have a bitter streak and can be nasty. I think its because they ahve a dog,s life and take it out on other people (well my dog has a good life) Its hard to like them but maybe no one does like or really trust them and thats why they are lonely. i don,t like pushy nosey people. Its a shame they cannot focus upon themselves and have to spend their lives interfering in others people,s life. Maybe they don,t have any confidance to do things but then self confidance does not come on a plate it comes by trying. Ignore them are they really worth taking any notice of these rude people who need to get a life.|
|I just wanted to make a comment about people who tell what they are doing on the weekend, and what they are doing that is special to them when they are off work. Why do they tell you what business is it of yours. Personally, if I am doing something ecspecially on the weekend I will not tell, but if I am going to lunch I may tell where I going or where I went after lunch. However, what you do on the weekend is none of anyone's business at work. Personally, I just want to an honest day of work and keep co-workers just as such co-workers, simply because work is work. Nothing causes workplace strife more than one person or two people constantly telling their plans for the weekend, they will eventually claim you are hating on their lifestyle and how they have it so good. If that is not the case they will try to look down their noses at you because in their mind you do not have a life. However, the fact of the matter is somepeople feel that going out is living and that is cool, but some people rather stay home on most weekends. Neither of the individuals are better than the other but, their are people out there that want people to hate them, because they simply get a rush out of the playa hater game and they think they are a playa. Basically I really do not care what another individual does on the weekend, simply put they are not paying any bills for me.|
|There is one thing that really burns me about people sometimes. Two categories of ignorance exist. You have your nosey busy bodies who gets into your business and use what you say against you. They pretend to be your friend, smile in your face and find out all they can about you. They may even follow you around, and ask family members about you, who have not spoken to you practically your whole life, but now they know everything. You have these kind who search far an wide for your business. Then you have the people who get wind of a situation you went through, now mind you the situation could have happened 2-5years ago maybe even 10-20 years ago. Something that happened when you were a kid. Mind you again, these people where nowhere around when situations occurred, they were not in on the conversation you had with the first kind of nosey person, however, they can tell you everything that went on just to remind you of your past. Now personally these people work for the devil himself, he has given them a corner office. They just got wind of some gossip and they want to remind you of it, or just let you know they are aware of some old dried up bullshit. For people who do this kinda of shit, you need to get a life.|
|I recently relocated to North Carolina after my husband's sudden death 6 months ago. I am 51 years old. My new neighbor is at my dooe daily and I cannot sit on my back porch without him invading my privacy. I put a fence up this week but since there are home owner regs it is only 4 ft high. He is driving me nuts. His male partner is still in Georgia so he thinks he needs to latch onto me. He is very catty about the other neighbors and complains alot. I love my new home but I am a very private person, not to mention that I am still healing after my husband of 27 years committed suicide. Any advice??? I just want to come home from work and enjoy my little dog, walk, talk to my children on the phone and relax.
I don't want to be friends with such a knucklehead!!!!
(Editor's note: Just totally ignore him. If that doesn't work, tell him flat out you don't like him and wish that he would stop bothering you. If that STILL doesn't work, say that you "don't like his kind" and let him figure it out.)
|I had enjoyed reading some of the comments posted on this sight. For a while I thought I was the only person who had suffered great loss due to nosey people. It all began in 1998, it was my first job, however I was too new to be a part of any of the real gossip, however, when I was up for a promotion, I guess I had to go through the fire. All the characters were in place, demanding bosses, nosey secretaries, and co-workers. Many of the questions they posed to me were questions about parents, education, church home, age, and money. These were questions I just did not feel comfortable hearing, and moreover they did not feel comfortable with my answers. Even if someon asked "how are you doing" it brought conflict. There was conflict about eveything, and everyone thought I caused the conflict. Long story short I asked to be moved from this certain area, this made life even worst. People actually thought my whole life revovle around finding a husband and men, which is not true, because I got a job to better my life. So, they would point me out as a single woman, men I guess would judge me and consider if I was good enough for them, if I talked right, basically if I would consider going to bed with them. I even had someone from elementary school follow me home with a some other guy just to tell me to "fuck around" if I wanted a man. So, the first two years of work was good, however, from 2000-2005 my days was filled with nosey people who basically smiled in my face. Things I would say they used against me at the appropriate time. However in Feb. 2005, having a medical condition in my body, I got terribly sick at work and was hospitalized for days, however, once I went back some of the job duties I had I could no longer do. People said all kinds of things about me, they said I had aids, which was the worst. By June of 2005 I was laid off due to excess capacity. Since the experience I had with the beautiful people at that company, I find it hard to trust anyone. I am really annoyed by people who ask questions that does not pertain to issues at hand. Even though some of the lies and gossip may still follow me a year after I was laid off, I am glad to say I have not went back to visit the building I worked in or the wonderful people therein. I have moved on with my life, I am currently working on a new career, and elementary school teacher. I have 3 more semesters to go and I am excited about the opportunity. During my experience however I lost friends, my name was scandalized, and I make less money now, but I am healthy, and content. An I do not have a man simply because I cannot trust there is not a hidden motive behind their niceness. Nosey people have cost me greatly, and I think that is their motive, however you just have to move on and ignore them.|
|I live in an apartment building, with wood flooring. My upstairs neighbors, mother and daughter, both very adult, love to listen to my conversations, often commenting on statements (while they are eavesdropping)that have nothing to do with them. They even follow me to the bathroom! When I leave my apartment, you can hear them running across the floor to watch me out of the window. They even bring their relatives over to listen. When I talk on the phone, they immediately stop walking so they can be certain to over hear what I am saying,and if I move to another room with my conversation, they immediately go to the same room( I can hear their footsteps). They report my conversations, ie.. I have migraines, what I cook, to other neighbors in the building. Can anyone give me any suggestions?
(Editor's note: Tell them to fuck off? Or just pretend to be having loud sex all day...Or even better, have loud sex all day...)
|Oh gosh, I have THE nosiest neighbor that could EVER be possible. They are very nice, but so unreasonably nosey. They have one window that faces our home and I wonder who is looking out at us in our daily life all the time. We are a quiet couple and this neighbor even said so much as, "Gosh, it almost feels like no one lives there (our home)." How would they know this because the side of their home faces ours? I can't see my neighbor to the side of me and I have no idea of their comings and goings. So how would I know if it almost felt like no one lived at the side neighbor's house-I can't see it. I could go into it deeper about this neighbor, but TMI here. Why can't neighbors just wave when they see you and go on about their business? I feel talked about and watched all day/night.|
|yeah nosey people suck...my friend will not stop tryin 2 read my conversations with me and my friend and it's fuckin stupid|
|I like to thank everyone here, I feel alot better and don't feel alone. I alway thought it was me not her. But I I didn't put down that she has even opened my mail when the supit mailman put my letters into her letter box. She said whatever goes into her box shes aloud to read it. How boring to read others mail. I told the police and they said its my word against hers . I got a post box at the post office so my mail doesn't come to my address no more, but it sucks I have to pay to get my bills. I want to thank ANAON, tryed what you said about the weights works great she even got her friends over to see if they knew the sound. ( ha ha). I had the best laugh in a long time .Thanks everyone , I wish you all the best and also the owner of this site, thanks again mate you made it possible that we can all have a wrienge and a cry. Thanks again.|
|i KNow a thing or two about nosey people. I get online often and it seems like everytime i do my things end up getting "found out" as if i were even trying to hide them to begin with. It seems to me that people who spend most of thier day trying to "catch" others in wrong acts are people who A.) have no life. B.) are doing things themselves. its a shame that i have to constantly watch people go through my emails, my links and other sources to try to gather information not knowing that i am well aware of what it is they are doing. SOMEONE TELL NOSEY PEOPLE TO GET A LIFE . And some websites and other places i go to.... i do it just to get a shock out of them-people are so ignorant|
|some advice for people who have to deal with nosey people, such as poor sharon there..... do things that they will spend hours racking their poor little brains to figure out, like spinning a weight (the kind weightlifters use) like how you would spin a coin on your floor, then stomp on it as it starts to stop.... let them figure out what that sound is.... carry a cardboard packing tube or other such item with you to work every day.... anything that could contain something interesting.... carry in a heap of supplies like you are building or making something in your house..... nothing really crazy, just stuff that drives them wild trying to figure out.|
|I can relate with everyone regarding the annoying behavior and actions of nosey people. I am a very private person. I don't like to discuss my personal business with strangers. I've encountered nosey people at work and some who are unfortunately distantly related to me. The ones at work want to know about my private life like if I'm married, how many children I have, how much money I make and etc. My nosey relatives want to know why I rent as opposed to own a home, when I am going to get married, where I work, how much money I make and etc. I don't even know them personally. They know of me since my family is from the same place they are from orginally. I'm not into materialism. Having a huge house and a fancy car doesn't provide validation for me. However, my nosey relatives think that the appearance of having money is the most important thing in life. They supposedly own their homes by working two jobs, maxing out their credit cards, and renting out their basements to complete strangers. Yet, they think that they are worthy of judging me. What a bunch of hypocritical fools.|
|I am held by nosey neighbors as well. I wonder what is the peeping tom laws in the state of Texas and how can I go about finding them. This isn't happening to me but to another one of my neighbors. For me accross the street keeps staring at us when we walk what we do just about everything. Thing is I have two nosey neighbors one in the front and one in the back so I am doubled up here and about ready to move.|
|I moved in an apartment on a beautiful pond this year. Everyone seems nice, but keeps their distance, which is fine for me. EXCEPT for one NOSEY neighbor who at first I thought was just a very friendly, concerned person; well, at this point, she tries to treat me like I'm obligated to stand & listen to her boring prattle for 2 hours, answer her nosey questions, and now, I find myself avoiding her like the plague; she harasses everybody trying to enjoy the pond; last night, I went to empty my garbage out back, and she actually approached me with a "reverend" something or other; the rev. proceeded to try to preach to me about how I needed to "calm down" I've never even seen this person before in my life, but evidently, the nosey neighbor tod her soemthing wierd about me, etc. I was annoyed as hell, and told them both to bugg off & butt out! Unbelievable.
(Editor's note: Considered just interrupting her and saying "Screw off!"?)
|I hate nosey people too. I was walking into my apartment and noticed my neighbors car was parked right into the space where I needed to walk into my apartment and so I went another way to avoid the car and so as soon as I get to the other side to go to my apt he was standing there looking at me. I kinda froze and was looking for my keys and he said hello do you live upstairs. I tried to ignore him and I mumbled yes and then he introduced himself and said he wanted to get to know his neighbors and I was quiet and didn't say much and then he asked my name and I didn't answer and then he gave me a look of you are so wierd and as I went into my apt as he ask if I had any kids. I just went in and ignored him big time. I was like, did you not get the hint that I didn't want to talk to you and he kept asking questions. Was I rude?|
|My co-worker is so nosy that when she gets to work,the first thing she does is come and tell me about other workers.Now not only her,but she's recruited three more nosey people.She talk's about our boss.She talk's about other clients.I was very mad when she started talking about my daughter,but she didn't know it.Now that I've rested my temper,I feel as if she's done the same thing to me.But through it all I shall pray for her,and hope she dont go to far.Mainly because she cant defind herself,and the women here are big.|
|I think some people have questions in life, but then some people take it to being not just nosey, but very sick mentally, not mentally ill, but rather a different ill. i have 3 neighbors, a grandmother, 82, her daughter 64 lives with her, then the daughters daughter lives next door and her 2 kids. they have blackouts at nights to watch us, they let there 8 year old a 4th generation carry around high powered binoculars and hide behind bushes. they park there cars in different postions to let you know they are watching. the daughter with the 2 kids also is on meth we have found out, and she comes on our property at night and hides behind our privacy fence and watches us. it seems that sometimes people that are nosey or try to watch others are the ones that are the guilty ones themselves and need to be watched!!!!!|
|Hello. My family moved here about a year ago. I feel for all u people out there who have nosey neighbors. My family cannot go outside without our neighbors watching our every move. They are in their late thirties same as me and my husband. At first they seemed nice. There two boys r the same age as my little guy n they play together. It is to the point where I cannot talk to the husband without the wife coming out and calling him. She seems in one hand wanting to be friendly but then she acts like this. We cannot do anything in our property without them trying to do the same thing. It is quite nerve racking. We r a christian family and yet it is so hard not to feel A bit resentful and sometimes I am sorrowful to admit feeling a big dislike for them. But as my husband says we are a fun loving family and we refuse to let sad nosey neighbors rob us of our joy in our home. I just pray I will never be like them. I wish u all luck and please do not let people like these rob u of uour happiness. Remember I think most nosey people r either lonely , unhappy. or jealous people. In a way I kind of feel sad for them. Thank-you for listening to my story. God Bless All.|
|I agree with a lot of what has already been written. I have neighbors that have tried to turn the whole neighborhood against us. I have never seen anything like this. I guess, it does start with the OPENESS of neighbors coming over to say "HI" in a new neighborhood, although I am a bit more reserved, until I have had time to adjust myself. When we set up our house, so that they could not be nosey (blinds down, new wall going up so they cannot see directly into our kitchen), they started asking the kids information. We told them to ignore them, and the neighbors went off on spraying the kids if they are near the fence we share, manipulation of the kids, etc. This is as bad as I have ever seen the neighbor situation. I do cry at night about this. Even having someone over has proved to be they target them (if they live in the surrounding neighborhoods). I am fed up. I wish they would just get a life!!!!! Thank you for this site to vent a bit. I am relieved that I am not the only one on this earth going through this.|
|When we moved into our new place with the wonderful spacious yard I should have known better when the neighbor came over right away to introduce herself. Being shy I instantantly liked her for being so friendly. Big MISTAKE!!!! Next thing I know shes always asking what it was I was doing in my yard. Hmmmm...like....are you watching my EVERY move or what lady! I would come back from buying groceries and the as the last sack was being brought in the phone rings......EVERY DARN TIME!!!! Its her and she proceeds to gossip for TWO STINKING HOURS...as im trying to extend my phone cord to put my groceries away. Time after time I'm telling her I really should go....her reply..."oh yes I should go get some things done." and then proceeds with something she forgot to tell me! Talk about ruining my whole day. I could not stand her constant critisizim of people. I told myself I'm not judging people by what she says. I got tired of hearing how bad people were raising their kids, who the "strange" people in the neighborhood were, who looked at her "funny" in the store. Well...I no longer answered my phone, only was as freindly as I had to be and she took it very personally. Its been hell living next door to the nosey neighbor ever since. I prefer to keep to myself these days only associating with one neighbor as we have kids in common and they play together. Some people just need to find some worthwhile hobbies to keep busy......rather than spying and gossiping all day about people....Oh and by the way ...who ever she trashed, I tried to defend in some way. It only made her mad...If she didnt like them ..I wasnt supposed to either. Go figure...thanks for letting me vent....Take care everyone...and dont let the nosey neighbors get you down. Your emotionally stronger than any of them!!!!!!!!!!|
|I live in Brisbane Australia, and yes I have neighbours that are nosey, They lie about my two kids and myself, they have turned neighbours against me, They comment on what we do inside the house if we go to the toilet I hear her say "someone went to the toilet , I wonder who it was" or if we have a shower ., 'someones in the shower can you see who it is" or if I go out , she says " sharons going out", when I come home she says " sharons home", when I mow the grass she watches me, when Im in the garden she comments on what I might be doing. I have told her to get a F****en life, but it hasn't work. When I have visitors I have to close up all the doors and windows and put music on outside so they can't listen to what my friends say to me.If the women is not home she get her son to write down what I do and the times I do it. Im too scared to fart unless shes going to tell the neighbours. I pretend its a empty house, and I can't hear her. I can't talk to my kids 13 and 16 outside unless she is siting against the fence so she can hear. I m so tried that I have to talk quiety to make sure she can't hear what I say. Im so stressed out.I have all these thoughts about her having a car crash while shes in traffic, so I can live again. I shouldn't have these thoughts. My friends say don't worry about what she hears, who cares, but I can't do that. When my kids are at school , Im very quiet and she fights with her idot husband, that she can't hear whats going on. Do anyone reading this ,think it might be just me ? Shes from india, and is very rich, but if thats what rich people are like I want to say poor forever. Im a single mum and I work for every thing we need. I don't yell back at her if she yells at me ,as it gives her fuel to fight on , if I pretend its another neighbour fighting at each other. I use to be so happy here, now II cry all the time. about what she says about me , as none of what she says is true. What would be wrong with her. The neighbours will only talk to me if we are at the shopping centre so she can't see them , they say they don't want to get involved, but if they say to these people to back off and leave me alone they will do this. So , no wonder where in the world you live neighbours are pain in the backside fulltime. I have always counter her bad remarks with something postive, but Im low on positive now. Have anyone got any advise for me, (I can't afford to more ).|
|My 3 jerk neighboors are so nosey. They are constantly watching everything we do. We were getting a shed delivered and I was leveling the ground where we wanted it to be. One jerk neighboor walked his dog down and said "new project huh". I just said "yep". That wasn't good enough. The next jerk neighbor came down and said "what are you building?". These are people who never speak to us unless they want something. Then when the shed was delivered, 2 of the jerk neighboors were watching everything from their deck.|
|My neighbor is nosy, yes nosy we all have em in our neighborhoods. She watches you leave come home etc. She calls and tells you when your kids are being bad(when in fact they are playing) Yet, and this burns me, her 5 year child screams at the top of her lungs daily and she does nothing. but will occasionally tell her dog to quit barking. geez some people need to get a handle on their own lives before putting others under the microscope. a message to nosey neighbors, You all are lucky the rest of us were raised better.|
|I live accross from an old couple. In the beginning, they seemed really nice. So, giving. I soon realized that everything comes with a price. They started coming outside when guests showed up, staring, running across the street. Then, it progressed to a new level of strange. They started leaving shades for the windows, and little notes, how they had drapes for our home. Well, then they called repeadetly, saying they could see candles burning in the windows. ??? I ignored that. Everything was all well until the other day, when she jumped out of her car and ran up to me when I was trying to leave. So once again the door was opened. I awake to a stroller on the porch, and pennies collected from my driveway, stacked in a pile.
Because I did not respond to the stroller, she ran across the street when my relatives were here so she could see who was knocking on my door. She took the stroller back. I wrote her a letter telling her I appreciate the ongoing gestures of kindness, but not to hesitate donating to the local charity. I hope this ends it all. My husband is very pissed, we feel like prisoners in our own home.
(Editor's note: Well that's just weird...)
|mind your buisiness|
|I got this nosey fellow police officer that ALWAYS walks in my office, acts like hes reading the bboard,update sheets, wanted lists etc, stuff he already has a COPY of at his desk, to see what im doing online. it really pisses me off, after weeks of it, I finally started doing the SAME thing to him.... I WON :-) LOL.|
|I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN!!!! This one time at my banana plantation this local guy followed me all day with his eyes all googly and stuff! Well I just ignored him but he kept grabbing for my melons! Whats a girl supposed to do! He kept asking me loads of questions like "whens sa your dolmio daya?" What a nut bar!! THEN he watched me walk away....FREAK!|
|Halleluju! There are other people out there experiencing this awful syndrom...FEAR False Evidence Appearing Real...That happens all the time in my work place...the bosses office I call the "spin zone" as a few privileged co workers are allowed to go in there and spin! True or not!! It really affects job performance and causes such an air of tension alllllllllllllllllllllll the time. And these icons of "truth" (ow i bit my tongue! it was in my cheek!) are the co workers who take smoke breaks 10 times aday/ come in late...leave early...and talk to friends and relatives alllllllllllllllll day....it is the most amazing gross insult to be judged by players like this. Ok...this was nice to be able to vent to the world!!!|
|Hi All... Come to Houston (Katy) Tx. they call it "Neighborhood Watch"...here and Block Captains are who ever volunteers... Lucky me...across the street I have an unemployed man with no women and3+ kids who sits in his garage and watches every move you make...dawn to dusk if any homeowner on street steps out the door he runs to "bug" them... I hired a lawn maintainence guy to do my lawn, this way I only go out to get mail....I back in my SUV in garage so what I have or buy in back is loaded unseeing....We have all fenced in backyards here...oh but the fun is looking thru the cracks and watching you in your back yard...these are the people who live behind me...so we added furring stripes 1x3 wood over cracks and at least have privacy now in back... My neighbors on both sides of me are polite and we say Hello...short conversations this is nice.... This man across street...hes a total PEST.... and If your the private neighbor who likes their privacy..and are quiet...then WOW...something must be wrong with you... Are we Vampires...Criminals hiding out...Bad People? or Just Quiet, reserved, private and just want to enjoy our home life and pick our own friends?|
|While I agree that nosey people are annoying, people must realize that when they put on a public display or have what should be a private conversation in public, it does bring attention to themselves from by-standers, who may not really want to be privy to their behavior or conversation. My personal peeve is un-solicited junk mail on my computer, and sneaky vendors who try to hide in your computer to see which web sites you go to; its NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS! I have protection for this type of nosey people, so just delete it, and I have a scan that shows the sneaky ones, so I just scan and delete, but it is very annoying to have to do this. Another pet peeve is jackasses who have nothing better to do than to try to insert viruses into other people's computers. Thank goodness, I have a very good virus protector, so it hasn't been a problem----yet! I'd like to send the virus right back to the person who sent it if I ever did get one, of course, without opening it, just hit reply and return it back to them. Mean people, though, usually get their justice eventually. Thanks for allowing me to vent..|
|there is a group of girls at my high school who feel it necessary to be in other peoples buisness i really dont get it but i recently came up with the conclusion that they are just truly insecure with themselves. there is this on ugly chick stright like an ironing board name carla and she is the ring leader of it all i guess behind that ugly ass face there is a girl cring to be accepted for her dull self and since being her self aint cutting it she talks about others soooooooooooo so sad!!|
|I cant understand what makes people like this tick, I know first hand, Ive had a motherinlaw that tops all of the letters . This woman even went as far as to lock my bedroom door, while babysitting our kids,,, and look through our mail, she went as far as to look in her sisters will, she peeks out windows at nite and knows more about people than they know about themselves!!!!The best way to deal with Nosey Rosey is to ignore them or more across country , like we did!!!Its a sickness , its called the Nosey Flu, it spreads!!!!!!!!!!!!|
|People who are lonley and dont know anyone to talk with may be asking you questions to lead in friendship. On the other hand some people want your personal business to talk shit about you to other nosey flakes. and start false rumors that people accept as fact. it is best to use good judgement and dont discuss any personal stuff unless you are sure that it wont be used against you. To the lonley a good way to meet people is to volunteer your time to the mission or humaine society. This will be rewarding as you will meet new people and not be so isolated. Volunteering is a good win\win situation so suggest this to someone who is looking for some kind of purpose in life instead of sticking thier nose where it doesnt belong.|
|WOW this is one messed up town,,been here just a few years and already have several people I cant stand,ranging from convicted local pervert(who likes little boys) to Aylmers finnest cops who think thier Crap doesnt stink...TOO MANY pervs around here for my liking,,not even safe to take my son to his hockey games without some perv watching all the little boys!!!!
(Editor's note: You mean Aylmer Ontario? If so, then I know exactly what you mean...)
|Chica, look around you at work. What is the ratio of blacks to Whites in your work environment???? My guess is that you are part a small percentage and as result, the odds of nosey co-workers being white are high just based on that obvious analogy. You are racist right down to the bone or you wouldnt have even entertained such a rediculous notion. Grow up.|
|My neighbor use to just stop and stare at me whenever I went outside to do some yard work. He would often watch me for quite awhile. I put up a fuss and called him some names(pathetic and nosey), so now he still watches what I am doing but he does it hiding behind bushes or from inside his tool shed. He thinks that if I can't see him I won't make a fuss, but I can see him and I still do make a fuss. In fact, now he seems even more pathetic to me and I truly think he needs some help or counseling!
(Editor's note: Call the police and report a peeping tom.)
|Nosey people are SPACE INVADERS--Nosey people SUCK- about the only thing I thought they may be good for is when you want the rest of the office to know something important-and then they aint even of any constructive use cuz they seem to only be interested when it is "dirty laundry". Someone ought to air out all of theirs the same way that they do. I have even tried making up a stupid story to test these idiots. This really pissed off one of my nosey co-workers. Then there are the in-laws. I ignore or dont answer them at all and this makes them more full of the 20-questions. Sometimes I really do feel like I am in the hot-seat under a white light bein 20 questioned - like I committed some crime-or they're DIGGIN for SOMETHING. They should go into private investigation work. I wish there was a book on how to deal with this. I had a supervisor that would follow me back from lunch, to the potty-to the OTHER potty--where she only found that I was buying female stuff cuz the machine on bottom floor was out.- Once she came up from behind me and stuck her dirty fingers in the salad I was eating!!!!--she grabbed a piece of the cheese in it!!!. Whats up with that!!!. This has to do with a lack of respect and manners and sense of boundaries. Nosey people dont have any of these. They act retarded- even animals act better, or 1st graders!!! NOSEY PEOPLE SUCK!|
|I have the nosiest co-workers in the world! For instance, I could be having a convo w/others @ work and the nosey co-worker would walk in the room in the middle of the conve and say stuff like..."what?" "who?" or "what are you guy's talking about?" and it happends all the time! I hear she has no friends or a life outside of work. I kinda feel bad but I can't stant it either! I want to ask her if anyone has ever told her that she was nosey...I really want to know, cause I know she does it all the time and not just at work. I'm buggin' that I found this site and now that I did I am going to vent! I was on line trying to find out about people who are overly curious.They have to be lacking something. Anyway, I started another job and a girl that I work with at least twice a week and every time I see her she ask me what new with me or what have I been up too, or just straight up try and get anything out of me about my life outside of work. I don't intend on being racist but it seems like every nosey person that I know is white...anyone feel me? What's up with that? Maybe I'm opening up a can of worms but I think it's an issue and really a turn off!|
|There's this one woman at my job who has got to be the nosiest. She catches me at the elevator as I'm returning from lunch, and she tells me how my manager explained to her that this will be my final week of working there. So she asks me where I was going, I tell her out west, and she asks, "how far west?", and I tell her far west, and she continues, "where out west" and I say its a secret. Then she goes, "I'm sorry I asked." She should be sorry. I had to deal with her in the past with nosey ass questions, and she has no business wanting to know my whole life story. She has a history of asking the nosiest questions and has excused herself for being too nosey. Wouldn't common sense tell her to stop that disgusting behavior. I'm a private person and I highly dislike nosey people and I will lie to them just for being that way.|
|i dont have a comment, i need you advice you all. i am totally fed up with my neighbor. i have lived in my home for over 20 years and this lady just moved in about 6 years ago or less. everytime we go out she is mean mugging and starts talking stuff. i let my dogs out she says that they are not well behaved because they bark, but her does isnt that crazy.
she is a real nightmare and i am not moving for her like she made everyone eles. what do you think i should do about this sitution. there is about of things but not enough room for it all. all i can say she is a worse nightmare from hell.
(Editor's note: Completely and totally ignore her. If she tries to talk to you, just continue on with whatever you were doing as if she didn't exist. A few weeks of doing that, and she'll leave you alone.)
|Now I think one of my neighbors(the wife) is filming me. I was just outside watering my plants and a white box kept appearing and disappearing in their bathroom window. I guess I can try to kill them with kindness by waving(maybe blowing kisses and flashing the peace sign). Or does anyone have the formula for invisibility?? By the way, someone previously said that the shame of being seen should stop nosey neighbors from being nosey and staring. Well, I'm afraid my neighbors have no shame!!|
|One word comes to mind,pathetic.These fools are so damned bored with their own lives,they must easedrop on others who are busy with their lives.Yes,indeed greet a nosey ear with just what it hates,,a dern GOOD time..Hee,haaaa,heeeeheee,hee,,,,,Rear back and give em' hades.|
|We moved into a brand new neighbor about 3 years ago and the neighbor across the street has budded into our lives. I have even gone so far as to go inside when they are talking about how they are, all blah blah blah - you all know those types, I'm better than you and have to tell you about it, which really means I need your approval for whatever reason. They exaggerate over everything they do, I could go and on. From the time they watched us unload our furniture, then proceed to tell us what we have brought our home to who has been at our house, the whole gamit. I want them to go away, I've even given them the cold shoulder but nothing helps, she works for a financial company and now we have been getting checks in the mail from them, we are unlisted and could have gotten our ssn from dog sitting for my husband.- boy was that a mistake- I want them gone. What do I do???|
|The next time these people are watching you, turn to them and wave, do this every time you see them watching you. Kill them with kindness. If this doesn't stop them, the shame of being seen watching you should!|
|First I had the man next door who was so nosey and now his wife has started in. He watches everything I do when he is outside and now when I am outside (at the end of the day) she sits in this room right near my garage and watches me. How do you stop people from staring and being so nosey---thought control?, prayer?, hope they go blind?, or just move out? Most people tell me to just ignore them and I have for many years, but I have just had it!!!! This couple acts like I am the one with a problem when I tell them that they are nosey and that they need to get a life!|
|We have a neighbor who is always trying to nore in our business. But more of a problem is her constant complaining about other friends who even go out of their way to assist her with her problems.She may say they did thus and so for me but she could have did it herself. She is self centered and always complaining about her health. She never has a positive attitude.She is a completely negative person|
|Hey. I think this comment is going to you.In reference to.Nosey People. I find it peculiar that you feel people are consecutively talking about you behind your back and in passing. I don't want to offend you, but it sounds like you are being down on yourself for some reason. I hate to see people develop a persecution complex because of a bad experience. Sometimes our expectations give these instances power..it's a paradox if that makes any sense. There is a pack mentality that exists in dogs and people..unfortunately. When they smell insecurity (blood), they pick and prod..attack even. It is important to be confident..secure about yourself and carry yourself in such a way..even if you don't feel like. If you perpetrate as if you were completely confident and strong..you will begin to truly believe that you are. To expect that you are spectical on a negative alter..that is what you will be. However, i can validate that human beings can be absolutely cruel..because they are afraid of what they don't understand or relate to..by catagory. Self-actualization is freedom. I am sorry you have experienced hurtful behavior. It is important for you to realize that we all have at one point or another. There..I'm done with my soap box. Sorry to ramble.. but I hope it helped..even if planted seed.|
|Okay..here's my situation...it is inspired by the same beef expressed in a commentary about two-faced people and liars..cheaters etc. I have a acquaintence on campus who used to be my roomate. I am friends with her and her bf. I was sitting in the lobby of our dorm and could not help but notice that she was with a guy that she complains about..hitting on her..etc. It was late and they went up to her room. I don't want to think that I am nosey, but it really hits home..two-timers.. I have a real issue with people who are dishonest in relationships.. I wish I wasn't so senstivve to this but I am. How can I and should I just let it roll off of my shoulders. It has created a rift..I simply asked her..."you're not are you?" I feel bad. Advice please
(Editor's note: Who the hell cares? There are bigger problems in the world.)
|why do people like to be in others business? i hate it why can't they just mind them selves and stay out of mine . i hate when something is goin' on and sum one makes a comment and sum one automatically makes an asumption about them or the situation. its not far. that is tha main reason messis goin' on today . so i think if everyone in this world would mind there on business and stay out of others and don't make asumption the wold would be so much better then it it right about now!!!!!!! TIP: EVERY BODY MIND YOUR OWN!!!!!!!! THANX!!!|
|Rubbernecking Pagans, A little girl was struck tonight in the street by a careless driver. When I consider the actions of more than a few neighbors in coming to stand around and gawk I really just want to explode. I myself went out to see if I could offer assistance. When I saw the police and ambulance crew already working on her, I turned around and went back in the house. I knew at that point the most help I could offer was not getting in the fucking way! And.... where the fuck were the god damned parents when their little girl got hit? I don't even know if she's gonna live or not. This is torture. This isn't fair. If someone is gonna die, let it be someone like me, who's burned out and used up and disillusioned -- not someone who's full of life and potential and dreams for the future that should still be ahead of her!!!!!! GOD DAMN IT TO HELL!|
|The reason I'm so pissed is because you can't even read a book at a public library without the government knowing what you read. Isn't there any privacy in this damn world anymore. It's ridiculous.

|We have nosey neighbour, who employs her son to do damage to the property when they know it in empty, eg, break windows, smash gate off hinges etc. The police do not take sufficient action - we want advice as to getting this stopped. It is ruining lives, an invasion of privacy as the light sensor on her property is set to tell of our return. It is spooky. HELP REALLY WANTED TO STOP THIS PERVERT - PLEASE ADVISE.|
|we have kids like that where we live they do what ever they want. The police do not take sufficient action - here either, This place is a joke.LMOA. scream and shout. why don't the parent's so something about them booooottttttthhhhhhhheeeeeerrrrrrreeeeeeeeddddddddddddddd.|
|My bf and I moved into a new apt building a few months ago. This building has a little board ( I have yet to find out what their actual function is) that insists on interviewing people before they move in. Fine and dandy, but unecessary. They hold no power at all over the decisions made in the building. It is compsed of some 40yr guy who lives with his parents and a few others who have no real power over their own lives, which leads them to believe that they should get into everyone else's. They were so insistant upon making us go out of our way to meet with them at night (7pm is not a good meeting time in my book and mind you, we were the 1st ones to ever go through this "interview" in the 75 years that this building has existed), they show up late and then slip in things like "if you notice a few extra people in an apt, that shouldn't be there tell us, etc, etc." Great, but I have far better things to do then spy on people all day! They p*ssed my landlords off too! The individuals who one the apt decide who moves in etc and are not required to say sh*t to this "board". But they kept on calling and calling and calling them until they contacted us to meet with them just to "shut them up". What the hell do the think we are, drug dealers?! We are two college educated, well-dressed professionals who very likey make a good deal more than most of the people in the building! We've lived here for a few months now and out of the blue some nosey b*tch on the elevator starts asking us if we rent our bought the place. We say rent. She asks "from what company"? We say a couple. She asks who. We don't answer that. She mentions that the board has "meetings/interviews" and wants to know if the couple who owns the apt have met with them. What I gathered from it was that the sh*t-head thought that we moved in here without anyone else knowing, slightly impossible but... ARGH!!! Man, I just want to punch someone. Why do such pathetic people have to bother with others to give themselves some feeling of "power"?!|
|I have a nosey neighbor who just retired(early retirement, he is in his 50's) and he took down the hedge that was between my house and his house(it was diseased). I am trying to create a barrier between my house and his with various bushes, but they are small right now. Every time I am out in my backyard and he is there , he watches every thing I do. One day I went out to water the flowers and I saw him standing behind his clothesline(there were sheets hanging on the line). All I could see was his head peering over the clothesline and his feet down below the sheet. I almost started laughing out loud, but instead I just started at him until he turned around and walked away. Another time I saw him standing behind a bush(it was early spring and the bush hadn't gotten leaves on it yet) watching me working in my garden. I told him that I could see him and that he should take a picture because it lasts longer! Other times I have told him to "get a life" and that he is "pathetic." None of this stuff seems to work, he just keeps on staring. He is driving me insane.
(Editor's note: Just start doing really interesting stuff. Dig a hole in the middle of the night and throw in a blood soaked bundle. Look around obviously and throw the same kind of packages into your garbage. Turn lights on and off at random strange hours of the night. Set out hundreds of mouse traps in your yard, then sacrafice what you catch on an altar...)
|Wow this site is doing well.. Keep bringing your nosey people stories in here. I think all nosey people just don't have much of a life that's all.|
|Constantly annoyed by nosey neighbors. Me and my husband just moved in to a new neighborhood where they swarm when they see us outside. I can see them coming from all directions waving and watching. We are expecting our first child, so one neighbor came over to see if my feet were swollen and commented on how she noticed I had been working quite a bit in the yard. It angers me so much to be spied upon. Is there really nothing else going on in these people's lives but us? That is pretty sad! I spend a limited time outside because I am a private person who does not care to share my private affairs with strangers. These folks even take our trashcan up to our house so that they can see what we have around our house. I guess we will just be a prisoner here!|
|I just hate nosey people|
|I have really nosey neighbor's.I feel like everytime i walk outside they are watching me! One moment there blinds will be wide open and then later on during the day they will be closed. This goes on all day. I have no idea why ,& I find it very weird.The mom is always snooping around outside.When i run in to her she tries to tell me everything about her life! Then she wants to know about mine. Just b/c she wants to tell me about hers does not mean I will tell my life situations to her! I wish they would move or stop watching us! What is up with the DAMN BLINDS!!!!|
|people suck. you cannot trust them. some people lie. some people cheat. others are just assholes, jerkoffs and/or douchebags. what the hell? I think the words please and thank you have become more like latin to some people than manners. but hey, who the hell knows what manners are these days are either? it's disgusting no manners, no morals, not a one. what the hell is wrong with everyone today? ugh. But that's nothing compared to the vicious rumormongers who spread out and out LIES about you behind your back knowing it will get back to you thats nosey people all over.|
|I am so sick and tired of people treating me like I have no right to exist. Some people would stare at me like I did something horrible right in front of them or If I'm running around naked in the street singing showtunes, or some other crazy shit like that. Others would mutter obscenities under their breath when they walk past me. I don't know the people that do these things, they sure as hell don't know me. I'm not a criminal,I mind my own business,I don't go around picking fights with others. I'm not going to stay confined to my home because of bi-polar assholes I have the misfortune of running into everyday.|
|FUCKING PEOPLE ARE SO FUCKING NOSEY!!!!!!!!!!! :P - someone with a big nose. How true :)|
|i answer all questions about myself, then the nosey person gets uncomfortable and stops asking questions. Or they tell me to stop complaining, so I tell them I was answering their questions objectively. Then they get confused because they're stupid, and they stop asking questions. The end.|
|i think i probably really annoy the heck out of nosey people....i have a few nosey people at work...the ones who need to know everything that's going on with everyone, workwise, "personalwise" ...i am not good at small talk, or any talk really, so they don't get much out of me...and it pisses them off likely|
|Just ignore them, Its the best way don't say anything to them. Nosey people make me angry.|
|who want's to know everyone else's biz anyway.|
|who want's to know everyone else's biz anyway.|
|JUST MAYBE PEOPLE WOULD MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS! NOSEY PEOPLE RUIN IT FOR EVERYBODY! LEAVE OUR RIGHTS ALONE!!!!! ... I don't like nosey people, these insect kind of people who try to slime their way into your every crevice - yuck. I wish these people would get a life ...|
|Some people are soooooo nosey!|
|I can't stand busy bodies, prying eyes, nosey people.|
|the nosey people read to catch up on their shit talk,|
|they're nosey, they want to invade other peoples' consciousness. ...|
|Most people are so nosey or self-absorbed they think that everything pertains to them, and they canít live without knowing everything. ...|
|I am pissed off with people that gossip behind your backs. They are just plain and simple losers who are jealous of others. I hate people like that. A word of advice: step up and say it or shut the fuck up. And Why are people so two-faced.|
|What the fuck is the deal with all these do gooders? The criminals, terrorists, and losers and filth of society are protected by these idealistic fuckwits who don't know their ass from left. The criminals are still rampaging on the street, the terrorist still kill more innocent people, and the lazy people are cheating off the welfare. Fuck off idiots! That is why the world is out of control. Pull your heads out of your fucking asses and figure out why crime rates and deaths are higher than before. How about you go to fucking Iraq for a week and give us your opinion on what we should do. And don't you fucking dare come whinging to us when you are robbed, attacked, blown up and have had money stolen from you|
|I am really tired of these shallow people everywhere.|
|Nosey people in my family is a fucking pain in the arse. i wish i was some where else. Why me!!!|
|If they're being nosey about a friend/family member I answer their questions with "I don't know the answer to that but I'm sure Jane Doe would be the person to ask". Refering them back to the person they are being nosey about usually gives them pause. Even had a gal say " I'm sorry I asked you that, I just realised it really is none of my business. (Yay! ) If they are being nosey about My business I respond with a question back like "why do you ask" or "what brings that to mind". This helps redirect the conversation or sometimes find their motivation for asking. When a nosey someone asks about something too personal for me to stand I have said "I'm not interested in discussing that" or "I don't think that's an appropriate topic for us to be discussing".|
|I hate really nosey folk i get that a lot at college and it does my head in they just dont take the hint that im a private person so i ended up telling them to f$$k off (excuse the language). Yeh i was surprized i reacted the way i did as i am normally timid but you can only be pushed so far im only human. Besides folk who want to gossip at other folks expense deserve it no matter what.|
|I'm 21 and my boyfriend is 22 i live in an apartment and whenever me and my boyfriend start haveing sex the neighbor is always staring b/c we have no vurten it gets on my nerves. A persson can't even have sex theas days without someone t rying to get in on the action|
|I read all of the above, how true, we moved to the country ended up the farm house for 100 years in the family with the mother in law hosue next dorr, she moved, we end up with a size one neighbor who is pretty but notttttttttttt one brain in her head, criticizes, gossips and scams the welfare system, after meeting her, looks are nothing I knew that before but she proved it.|
|my neighbour always is popping in our house ho is mentally retarded and sez howdy dude lol. thanks yall.|
|99 people who are nosey on the wall 99 people who are nosey If one of them people should happen to fall 98 people who are lefton the wall. and so on.|
|nosey people - donít let nosey people interfere with your life. THERE LOSERS. NOT A REAL FRIEND EITHER, nosey nosey nosey people suck.|
|All the time i get talked about and gossiped about I never know why people picked out me for years. well they talk about things in my life the bad things the good things. I never understood really. I still dont know today. Nobody will tell me anything. Dont expect me to tell anyone anything, Becasue i dont gossip like that. other people lifes is nothing to do with me. people talk about my life its none of there Business.|
|If you are reading this then you are guilty of being nosey.:)|
|NOSEY people are here there and every where, you cant stop them breeding, THEY SUCK BIG TIME, i wish people would grow up and stop being a jerk in others lifes.... i am so pissed at nosey sods.|
|We should all feel sorry for nosey people as they haven't got a life! - I agree with that anonymous well written|
|I'm so pissed at people who act like they have to know all your business, I am feed up with people that gossip behind your backs. They are just plain and simple losers who are jealous of others. I hate people like that. Why are people so NASTY so NOISEY they have to runin your own fucking life. I am feed with Everyone doing thing to me. The few people who have NOT done things to me are the great ones. Thank you those people. The world does not go around me but when loads of people do things its starts to get really tiring. Im ok now but i keep stress level to a low well try to any way. What really ticks me off is Nasty nosey people having to know all your business all the time. These people don't care about anyone but them selves. They just carry on sticking there noses in you business, and been being plain nasty to others. I call them bullies.|
|My neighbours are some of the nosiest and nastiest people I have ever know. They spread lies about me and take me for a fool. They are some pain in the ass. i want to scream and shout at them. I am nothing and i feel worthless living next to people who think there better than me.I hate all neighbours there nosey and nasty. There all a pain in the ass and know all your buisineses all the time. If your ugly they slag you off and i hate them all. I wish i was out of this place for ever i think i will live on the moon or mars. People are rude well these neighours are, I am so feed up and tried why am i so feed up. They smash bus shleters and they swear at you.They turn bins over and set fire to them. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. I hate the kids around here there a pain. I wish i could get away from here. I hate the parents too. People around here suck|
|LET'S FEEL SORRY FOR NASTY NOSEY PEOPLE! becasue we have to don't we?|
|Let's face it...nosey people SUCKS!!! the people here are unfriendly, socially-incompetent, shallow, uninteresting and just all around lame. A shame, because the fact that people are generally very genuinely open and friendly is by far their most becoming trait. Oh yea! And have you noticed how NOSEY people are here. They're always up in your business. "Where do you work?" "How much do you make?" "How old are you?" This is the expected line of questioning if you happen to crack through the click and make a friend. Then they go to your place and rifle through your shit. Like you gave them a license to explore. They go through your drawers, cabinets and then smile and say "I'm being so nosey, huh? But in a good way!"|
|One of the "tricks" I employ when confronted by a "nosy" person is to simply turn their question right back around on them. "Oh, why would you ask that?" And you can always give a non-response to their reply It depends on the question. If it is rude or mean spirited then I fire back(of course there have been times when I was to shocked to reply|
|Nosey people can be nice too The elderly are lonely and starved for attention and just want to talk to someone, so give them a break. They are not being nosey. They just want to chat with the neighbor like used to happen when they were younger. If the elderly man's spouse is still alive, he still would like to talk lawnmowers, fishing, or something male oriented with the male neighbor next door. You're gonna be old one day too. Think about it and give a little. Doesn't take much to make those elderly people happy. (Im a jumpy person not a nosey person if I hear noise I jump, and kids they make me extremely nervous)|
|We should all feel sorry for nosey people as they haven't got a life! I always stop nosey gossips in their tracks by just saying to them "what anyone else does, providing they are not breaking the law, has absolutely nothing to do with me". That usually stops them.|
|I have a very nosey neighbour, has to watch who drives in and out of my place, I put out my recycling and she doesnt put it in the bins, she has to watch out her window, and know who comes in and out of my place, talks about me to everyone else, it just isn't fair. It really isnt any of her business!!
One time, a friend (male ) left a 12.30 a.m. very quiet too, yet she had to look out the window to see who it was, he wrote NOSEY in the snow when he left, and pointed to her place. I hope she saw it.
So sickening!! There I feel better now that I've wrote this. THank god for computers :), but seriously, what would you do about this?????
(Editor's note: I assume that you've already told her to leave you alone? That's simply what I would do.)
|all nosey people are trash and should be recycled but i can not think of anything to recycle them with|
|NOSEY PEOPLE are just a pain becasue they think they now your biz but its just some people can be sooo rude about things and alot of people like to move away from areas where theres nosey people. DONT EVER GET INVOLVED WITH NOSEY PEOPLE THERE NOT REAL FRIENDS THEY JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT PEOPLE ARE DOING, and someimes tell lies about others so they have no friends to be with in life. My grandad has a nosey neighbour who is always noseing over the fence and he wants to know what everyones doing in the neighbourhood. hes nosey hes married but he does not have enough to keep him self occupied so thats why hes nosey.Hes wifes nosey too.|
|I have really nosey neighbours who have to talk about your biz and fill in the gaps where they want to. If theres a person who getting better then any one else they have to be up ya arse to find out whats going on. they say how ugly people are how werid people are if you have no friends they will know it. If you are alone they will know it, They talk about everyone else biz but there own, i cant beileve i am here writting this its just people get on my nervous and ithey want to make me hide away from them for ever. I have been builled by nosey people as well as nasty people. Everyone i know is nosey. Never live here the sooner i move away the better.|
|Want to hear nosey? These two girls that work in my office and are my "office pals" always come in and walk all the way around my desk (which is facing them when they come in) to see what I'm doing. I put a CHAIR between the desk and wall to prevent them from coming back here and they sat their big butts in it and it never occured to them that it was an obstacle. The chair is there again, only now it has a backpack and a purse on it. I'll keep you posted. P.S. I NEVER look at their screens when I go in. I stay in front of their desk. Examples mean nothing here.|
|I have really nosey neighbours i live in a village. Villages are the worst places to have nosoey parkers. i wish people would mind there own lifes.|
|i have a very nosey boyfriend who looks up what i do on the computer its very irritating so i hope he can look this up in the morning and see what ive written. nosey people are insecure or have nothing better to do with their time, my boyfriend works all day but he finds time i think in the morning to check where i went on the computer the night before how sad dont worry im not on any pornsites tonight nosey boyfriend and with someone nosey like u what a turnoff i might need some porn sites real soon
(Editor's note: Sounds like not much of a boyfriend to me...No trust in a relationship means it's a relationship not worth having. Hope he actually does read this, so it might give him a kick to shape up.)
|Nosey people are a pain in the butt. If its not nosey people its nasty people.|
|Boy! Could I ever tell everyone the horror stories of nosey people. I work with this type of individual and she is so pathetic. She is ALWAYS in other people's business. I can't work on the computer without her trying to see or put a call on HOLD without her picking up to see whom it might be. Well, quite frankly, it's NONE of her *%! business!! It's really on the tip of my tongue to tell her this. We ALL keep hoping she'll get a LIFE and SOON!! Oh, did I mention she's a "fruitcake" to boot?|
|I need some help..
My neighbor is unreal....she calls me to tell me all the gossip in the neighborhood and then asks me things that I know would be talked about with other neighbors... I am very private and to be honest I thought this person was a great friend. She had a miscarriage 8 months ago and then in january i found out that she was 3 1/2 months prego and she hasnt told me yet...its very obvious when she leaves the nursary light on and is all painted for a baby. When she had a miscarriage she counted on me to help her with her other little one because she was nearing 6 months when she lost it. I really kind of backed off our friendship because everyone else knows she is prego and i am the only one she hasnt told and she has had plenty of oportunities....its not that i care but it does bother me now that she is emailing me because i dont really call her....and the questions she is asking are just really none of her business. how do i answer this or do i just ignore it as if i never got it....
(Editor's note: Tell her to go away. Works everytime.)
|i dont know all about this stuff im only 15 but i hate nosey people. i hate it because grown upsthink that "well im old then this 15 year old girl i can tell her what she could do with her life." Well guess what old people you are not me and you cant control what happens with me! its just to bad fhat you are a old person you have to take care about yourself and not other people i mean its okay that you care about a teenager but the is a point when you have to let then do what they think is right not always are we going to do what you say we have a mind of our owns just like you and you know if some one tells you to do something you dont like would you do it? Think about it.......
(Editor's note: You're 15. You don't own your life yet and you don't have the capacity to make the right choices. Those "grown ups" quite likely know what's best for you. Wait another 10 years, and you will understand.)
|Nosey is just a negative name for curious. Nothing is wrong with wanting to know what a friend is up to. Maybe they are concerned. So many people go to psychiatrists these day just to have someone to talk to/with. Maybe they could just talk to their nosey neighbor and save some money. Nosey people are just people who maybe didn't have a lot of fun stuff going on in their own lives that day so they wanna know what's up. What's so wrong about that?|
|I AGREE ON THIS SUBJECT? I always find my self asking many questions and one? Why are people nosey in other people lifes? I guess some people like to help other people. But those other people who just gwap becasue there life is boring then i say "GET A LIFE".|
|Nosey People SUCK! I HATE NOSEY PEOPLE I AM ALONE BECASUE OF NOSEY PEOPLE NOSEY PEOPLE ARE STUPID.|
|lol, you got it. I do not nose into others people business. I can say that with a clean concience. And the reason I am here is because I wonder if anyone else is as fed up with it as I am. From x boyfriends, x husbands and family members. Funny thing tho...you know how we pick our friends right? My close friends have not once asked a nosey question. Neither I of them. So If you arent nosey you have a right to say something and be mad. I could tell you some stories...to the point it cost me some important things in life. And what is worse nosey people dont get all the facts...or only parts of info and fill in the blanks, make assumptions...and they are WRONG about their conslusions. So thennnn....it turns to gossip. Just goes from bad to worse. k...its just cuz i am sick of all the nosey people too. LadyMyst|
|Hi folks whats everyone doing what underwear do you have on.Got to go now someone's just walked past my house|
|Yeah...I go through the same thing at my job. My boss emailed me Friday asking me if I was using an instant messenger. I could tell it was a "set up" question, so I said yes. She told me that I should uninstall it because someone brought it to her attention that I was using it at work. Now instead of quick messages to friends and family, I can waste more time composing emails. The thing that bothers me the most is that I don't know who told and that everyone here smiles in my face.|
|nosey people are lonely people. their life is so boring that they have to be all up in yours.drives me crazy..........|
|I have an extremly nosey boss. I know this and permit her to know only personal information that is absouletly neccessary. The worst part is she takes what ever she can get and then uses that against you later to make snide remarks. I am sick of her crap and feel I am being harrassed. Hurricane Frances was coming and I had just recently narrowly missed loosing my house in Charlie. I told her I was leaving earlier to prepare. She then begins bringing project work that is not late in an effort to get me to stay. Total control freak. Tuesday the matter will be resolved or I will resign. 5 years of this is enough.|
|Nosey People SUCK!|
|What makes people think because they come to a persons garage sale that they have the right as to ask when did you graduate? where did you get this(item for sale) was it new ? how long have you had it? how much did you pay for it? and so it goes Enough to make a person end up with a case of the hate to see you glad to see you go. Please, don't come again.|
|Basically, people suck, and they want to see if someone else's life sucks more. SO, that is why they are nosey. Now... PUSHY NOSEY people have got to be stopped!! I had some strangers tell me that I should not let my daughter put her hand on a sliding glass door today. I was easily offended, and gave them the "drop dead now" look. Of course, they persisted, and I gave the "drop dead now, or I'll help you" stance. Only then, did they actually back off. #1- they were complete strangers #2- they should mind their own business #3- the door was shut and not opening until the train came #4- their mama should have told them not to talk to strangers, because they almost got beat in the head by some testy stranger who does not like to be confronted about her parenting skills.. can I get a witness? Middle-aged women are the worst.. like it is their duty to regulate other people's world. LADY!! just let me raise MY kid, ok??|
|I have this cuz n she is very nosey she asks me what my family is doing and she ask what are you going to get her sis's babies for there b-day n she asks y we cant go 2 her house n all kinds of stupid stuff.|
|I have an extreme, not extremely, nosey neighbor. This one is actually saw into my apartment from his below and using a very small camera and micro drills. He has manage to cut up several of my possesions and is determined to ruin all of my electronic equipment. He is always at home when I am. He may even follow me (I don't know). This person sees just about everything I do. I no longer use my laptop at home; I have changed my passwords for the computer, banking; I have more keys now that ever and more locks than I care for to guard my possesions. This person still manages to cut up up some of my locks when I am at home. This is why I believe he must be using micro saws and micro cameras.|
|I have the nosiest neighbors! They sit on their porch when they don't work..mostly weekends or after work and just stare. One time I asked if they saw someone knock over a vase in front of my house..and they said nooooo that was it! Nosy neighbors can be helpful sometimes..lol..but these are not..They don't even say hello anymore..the he** w ith them!|
|I too have a terribly nosey neighbor. I can't walk around my house unless I'm fully dressed, fearing they're watching thru my windows. When I do look outdoors to check on my puppy or watch the birds at the feeder, they're always looking in my kitchen windows. They even went as far as to install a camera outside, which I might add, is pointed right at my back door. They say it's for securtiy, but I'm sure it's because they can't stand that they don't know what I'm doing. Another person here mentioned going into the house thru another entrance, that's what I have to do. I'm bothered that they take away my freedom. I wish they'd move, they're freaks.|
|I have been on the web three years I used to be in a chatroom , when chatting was fun then everyone, it used to be about music , until online everyone started to get to nosey about what I did for a living my daughter who chatted who was disabled which is none of thier bussiness where we live how much we both weigh. Our phone numbers and addys our real addys they would call all hours day and night . Trying to find out about my who family it was beyond ridicolous since then I trust no one one the web because of them being to nosey, I am so sick of noesy people on the web . Who cares who met who and if I am getting back with my ex or not. Thanks|
|I HAVE VERY NOSEY NEIGHBORS- THE THE POINT WHERE ONE WATCHES ME OR MY HUSBAND EVERY TIME WE LEAVE THE HOUSE- THEN CALLS UP AFTER WE ARE BACK WANTING TO KNOW WHERE WE'VE BEEN. A SURE CURE IS CALLING HER BACK UP AND BEING JUST AS NOSEY BUT I AM NOT LIKE THAT...I JUST THINK (YOU REEP WHAT YOU SEW) SO I WILL CONTINUE BACKING UP MY CAR WITH MY PACKAGES INSIDE AND GO IN THROUGH THE BACK DOOR WITH MY TRUNK HELD HIGH SO NO-ONE CAN SEE. SURELY IT WILL COME BACK TO HER ONE DAY IN ANOTHER NEIGHBORHOOD.|
|well, I'm just 16 so I dont have co-workers like that, or even at all. Though once I met up with a mate at the movies. We started talking in the entrance hall afterwards.
Now, I pride myself on looking clean, though I'm never going to look good, at the time I was wearing a suit (I had just got back from a funeral of some relation 12 times removed or something) my friend on the other hand, looked like your typical crack addict, pierced and wearing Ruff Ryders clothes. I noticed a lady, about 70ish with her grandkids, glaring at us. As a joke, I said that I had dropped of the goods in the bin outside the cinema and he should wait 20 minutes before gettiing them, cause "with this high grade skunk, we don want nobody being suspicious. Anyway, we went to the food hall and left after a quick meal. As we were walking out, the council security guard (who has no legal jurisdiction over anyone) was checking through all of the 4 or 5 bins out the front, as Granny was looking through some along the side :)
Just to add insult to injury, my mate got in his heavily modified 82 Subaru 1800 gl hatchback, weight 750kg, power 185kw, and left four nice fat marks all the way down the ramp to the road.
|how where you shooting? what where you shooting? i thnk all of this hype of guns killing people is bs. poeple use guns to kill.|
|I too am fed up with nosey people! And Mack Mommy I have TWO co-workers like yours! They also look at my lunch every day and because THEY are on diets they think I should be (even though it's MY body and one if not BOTH are bigger than me!) they asked why I do my make up like I do (even though, again, one of them is NO beauty queen and HER make up is really dated NOT that it bothers ME!) but the WORST of all was when one of them read an article "How many men have you had sex with?" and then asked everyone and they made me feel really pressured to answer (which I shouldn't have) but after I did I felt really angry at the question! We (hubby and I) have a flatmate/landlord) who is really lovely except that he asks a zillion question (again about my eating habits and no I am NOT obese chubby a bit but NOT fat and if people got off my case I MIGHT actually DO something about it but I find myself rebelling!) he asks why don't you buy some vegetables? When are you two doing your food shopping (he will ask that one every day until we DO!) and so on. Also when hubs was away he kept asking me when I was going to tidy the room like it's even his (our landlord's room) that is OUR space and it was NOT dirty just a little messy and I DID tidy it when I was ready! GRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!|
|I have a co-worker who is extrememly nosey. It seems that everytime she passes my desk she looks to see what I'm doing on the computer. If I'm having lunch she must stare at that as well and ask several questions about the ingredients and the name of the store. Unfortunately, she does this while surveying everything on my desk! If that isn't bad enough whenever a man stops near my cubicle she "just so happens" to be in the area so she can over hear every word. CAN SOMEBODY TELL HER TO GET A LIFE?|
|I know exactly what you mean i'm 21 and my girlfriend is 20 and she looks about 16 and when we go out we get stared at alot. I guess you goto keep in mind its not there business and that the time you are spending with your friend/mate/(insert your relationship type here) is more important than anyone else who may be critiscizing the relationship.|
