17 People Share The Weirdest, Creepiest Sh*t Their Neighbors Have Ever Done –


Whether you’re a city kid, suburban denizen, or rural…farmer?, you’ve probably lived near someone with strange habits. I had a neighbor who always put his trash in someone else’s garbage can (it’s all going to the same place, guy) and one whose wedding planning stress erupted in screaming matches I regularly overheard (ok, eavesdropped on. The walls were super thin!). If you’ve never experienced the bizarre nature of a neighbor, then YOU might be the weird one everyone on the block’s talking about. But don’t worry; perplexing neighbors make the best sitcom characters, and provide some of the most interesting stories.

Reddit users recently shared the weirdest, creepiest sh*t their neighbors have ever done. It ran the gamut from odd yet endearing to straight up terrifying. Some of these people should’ve moved when they had the chance – or at least invested in a home security system. Ready to get weird? Let’s dive in.




My wife and I live in a large apartment complex in Chicago. I am not sure which apartment this guy actually lives in, but I always see him zooming out of the courtyard. We call him Future Man.

Future Man does not speak or walk or try to fit into society in anyway. He is easily 6’7 and weights at least 275 pounds. He wears sunglasses at night and I’ve never seen him actually walk. He rides everywhere on one of those two wheeled hover board thingies and at night straps rope lights to his torso that flash incredibly bright red and green light. Sometimes he also has a little Bluetooth speaker clipped to his backpack that blasts some pretty solid 80s/90s hip hop. He does not slow down. He drives it mostly on the road and does not observe such things as stop signs or stop lights.

We have lived in this apartment complex for 5 years and just two weeks ago he acknowledged me for the first time. He simply gave me a head nod and put his hand into a fist as if to say “you’re okay with me.” He said nothing in actuality but I’m still beaming from the experience.

He’s my favorite neighbor, but he is weird.

My neighbors kid stands on our shared fence and chews it.

So I had a neighbor (80yo or more) widowed guy.

Every time I get the newspaper delivered to my mail box, when I open it : I find the crosswords done (I don’t do them or give a damn).

A day I decided to try catch who’s doing my crosswords, day 1 : 8 am, they where already done. Day 2 : 7:30 am already done. Day 3 : 7am I decide to give up.

One day, 4am, I was getting back home from a night out, while I was passing by the mailbox ; nothing yet delivered, so I place my GoPro inside and went sleeping, the next day ; FINALLY GOT IT, it was my neighbor, he has done the crosswords right up on my mailbox, for like 10min (I will try to find the video, but it was absolutely cute, staring at my door time to time, and scratching his head). Next day ; I took him a 1000 crosswords book, drop it right his door, rang the bell and stayed on my car discretely. He took some time to open the door, then found it, I swear it was the happiest person like a kid that got a puppy. He stayed in his porch and passed like 2 hours doing crosswords then felt asleep lol.

The next day : i was getting back home from work, he came to apologize (like a kid that has to confess something) and brought some cookies. We stayed talking about his WW2 service and how the world changed.

I frequently bought him crosswords books, until he passed away 1 year ago..

May he Rest In Peace 🌺


Growing up we had some really crazy neighbours that lived across the road from us. The parents were real nutters and abusive to their kids. They would regularly lock their children out the front of their house and lock the front gate so they couldn’t leave with nothing but 1glass of water. Now this is outback Australia where temperatures would regularly reach 40-45 degrees the kids would be screaming and crying out the front. Police would get called they’d come. Kids would go back inside then get put back out once they’d left.

The mother would also come out the front of the house when my Mum would be farewelling or greeting people and start yelling “MRS COLLO89 WHY WONT YOU BE MY FRIEND?!??! I KNOW YOU THINK IM CRAZY. PLEASE BE MY FRIEND”

A few years ago I heard the mother had been committed to a psychiatric hospital, husband remarried and kids have nothing to do with them now.



Not my neighbor but a friends.

Lady use to put her car in neutral and push it down the drive way because she said it “saved her $$ on gas”

Same lady would also get on her hands and knees and trim her yard with scissors after the lawn care company was done.



I have these neighbors that live way behind me, down a long and secluded driveway. They aren’t really weird per se, but a nice, country, elderly couple in their late 80’s/early 90’s. Save for one odd habit of his. He kills buzzards and wires their decomposing bodies to his fence.

I discovered this when i took my toddler son back there to trick or treat his first time. We’re walking down that long ass driveway of theirs and hey, lookie there! Big ass dead buzzards, wings outstretched to the fullest, decomposing on the fence. I was just like “well that’s not something you see every day” and went right on to their door, dearly wanting to ask about them. I couldn’t be like “Trick or treat! What’s up with the buzzards?”



Ive caught my neighbor probably like 5-6 times just staring at me through the window with complete focus.



I had a neighbor (alcoholic/druggie) who thought there were two women living in my house; I had dyed my hair blonde from brunette. He continually asked where the brunette was and how she was doing. I finally just said she was fine.



There is an old man constantly out only in his boxers and he yelled at my family member for laughing in our pool

My parents have a neighbor that is obsessed with my mom. It was innocent enough at first he was just nice and theyd have small conversations. They became friendly and we would invite him over for bbqs and everything. Then he started to get creepy. Every single time my mom would take the dog out he would appear outside and want to talk her. He would find an excuse to come knock on our door every single day. He got the same haircut and grew the same goatee as my dad and started to dress like my dad. He then went and bought the exact same type of motorcycle as my dad. He started showing up at my moms work bringing her lunch and flowers. Thats when my dad had to confront him and it almost became physical. He has mostly stayed away since then.

There’s a senile old lady in the apartment behind me. Every time I take my dogs out, she gives me dirty looks.
When she sees my girlfriend she smiles and talks to her. Introduces herself every time as if they’ve never met…. Then I walk outside and she scowls. This morning I took my dogs out. Her blinds were open and she was looking out the window. I saw her and smiled. She shut the blinds – never smiling. I’ve given up on saying good morning, smiling, etc.

Do housemates count? If so:

*Drinks a 2 litre bottle of cola every fucking day, buys it from the corner shop so it costs double as well.

*Stole female housemates’ leather trousers and wanked all over them.

*Pretended to fall outside an Albanian car wash/ garage in order to get compensation from them. Is now in great fear of Albanians.

*Had another guy stay for about a month. Heard him say about 3 words whilst there. Like you say hi and he just walks past. Quite antisocial in that regard, although he never caused a problem it was just odd.


They video tape us 24/7. Whenever we come home they stand on their front porch and watch us. They put a big wire fence up between our houses a few years ago. If we’re backing out of the driveway they come and watch to make sure nobody hits the fence. Also, their entire house is covered in plants. I can’t see in any if the windows. It’s very weird. If it’s snowing and we accidentally shovel a tiny bit of snow through the wire fence they will come out and shovel all their snow onto our side. They will cut down trees on our property that are too close to them and throw all the branches in our driveway too. Also have paintballed our house. All because we didn’t lend them money a few years ago.

My neighbors are foreign nationals from china, and i dont think they quite understand the concept of a BBQ…

I was tanning on my balcony one afternoon when my neighbors burst out onto their patio quite loudly and break out a great big grocery bag full of meat. whole foods bag by the look of it, so one can imagine the meat wasnt cheap.

dude turns up the heat and throws about 7-8 steaks on the grill. straight. no seasoning, no nothing. puts the cover back on. then walks back inside. about 5 minutes and the meat smell is wafting my way. im not complaining because it smells pretty good.

20 minutes later and i am getting worried because it is well overdue for this guy to flip the steaks. nothing.

another 20 minutes. those steaks are definitely suffering by now. the meat smell is still there, but its starting to smell a bit charred. nothing…

another hour and a half goes by and these steaks are DEFINITELY charcoal by now, the smell of meat has gone, and it has been replaced by the smell of charcoal and propane. i am guessing the tank has run out because i have the same webber grill and it only fits one tank inside.

i hear the guys porsche macan pull back into his garage and the whole family bursts out with leftover bags from sam woos. guy goes back to the grill, opens it up to witness a bunch of bricks of inedible hunks of charcoal. takes some selfies and pulls them off and throws them on the grass.

fucking what the actual fuck?


I’m pretty sure I’m the weird neighbor. But one time I farted pretty loudly and my downstairs neighbor laughed

My sister/bro-in-law hated their neighbor. He was a weird pedo-type. They had some contractors build a fence in their backyard. He came out into his backyard mid-build and injected one of the guys building the fence in the butt cheek with, what he called “vitamins”. We flipped shit. He ran away. When they cleared out his house they found a shitload of child porn. Like, Polaroids. It was very bad.

I have a neighbor in my apartment block who sings opera. Not poorly singing over a recording, but singing well on his own. I live next to a school known for its music program, and he’s clearly an upper level opera student. It’s never loud enough or late enough to bother me, and he’s quite good at it. A few times he’s had a woman over and they’ve practived together. He’s my weirdest neighbor but also one of my favorites.

We’re pretty sure that the lady who lives across from us is a high-end prostitute. We’re in a good neighborhood, but she has a wide variety of older men visit her at all hours of day.

She’s the only person on the block who doesn’t come to our block parties or socialize, but once she asked my neighbor to mow her lawn and, upon completion, decided not to pay him because the work wasn’t of a good enough quality. It was actually decent, and he was 12 years old, for heaven’s sake!

We now refer to her as “that lady” and everybody knows who we’re talking about.



I dont live next to these neighbors anymore but my next door neighbors had a habit of threatening each other with guns whenever they argued. It wasnt uncommon for their kids to come to our house for safety and to borrow a phone. One or the other was regularly arrested because of this. It was very very rare that a month passed and this didnt happen at least once. It was weird to say the least.

Grew up with neighbours downstairs who would complain about every little noise. Like walking accross the floor, running a bath, flushing the toilet, laughing. They used to bang up all the time and it was a rented flat so they used to make official complaints as well. Couldn’t listen to music, not even quietly, had to use headphones. Couldn’t even play the board game frustration (the one with the dice in a bubble) because they would bang up. So yeah, weird people.
