The 9 WORST neighbours ever

The roach-infested flat was bad, but how about the woman who smeared dog poo on her neighbour or the man who shot his neighbour in the knee with an arrow? 

GROSS!

GROSS!

Earlier this week, the internet made collective gagging noises when a video of cockroaches swarming a Eunos HDB corridor went viral. The person who posted the video complained that her family would encounter up to 10 cockroaches a day – her husband found them in his pants once and one nearly crawled into their son’s ear. Further investigations revealed that they had come from her neighbours, an elderly couple who refused to clean up their home despite living amongst heaps of roach-infested trash.

Worst neighbours ever?  Read about these horrible neighbours from around the world and decide where the roach-dwelling couple ranks.

Woman smears dog poo on neighbour’s face

In this case, both parties were at fault. Amy Goldberg, 57, from Boca Raton, Florida, got so irritated after her elderly neighbour’s dog kept pooping in her lawn that picked up the feces in a plastic bag and hurled it the neighbour, allegedly smearing it all over the woman’s  arms and face.

Man steals neighbour's clean clothes because he was too lazy to do laundry

A 22-year-old man living in Guangzhou was so addicted to online gaming that he ended up breaking into his neighbours’ flat to steal some clothes because he didn’t feel like doing laundry. In court, the man said he was too lazy and too obsessed with gaming to wash his own clothes. (You would think breaking and entering is more work than stuffing your clothes into the washing machine, but what do we know?). The man ended up serving 8 months in prison and paying a fine of 1,000 yuan.

Man high on marijuana runs naked into neighbour’s house and tries to steal her baby

Stay away from illegal substances, kids. After smoking some “bad weed”, a 22-year-old Paul Mounombi got so high that he stripped off his clothing, broke into his neighbour’s house, and tried kidnapping her infant child. He hit and choked the mother, even demanding that she bow to him and call him her king, before turning on her stove burners and oven broiler. Police later found the man traipsing about an nearby forest.

Anonymous neighbour sends woman a note asking her to euthanise autistic son

Karla Begley, 44, from Toronto, received the shock of her life after a neighbor left an angry letter about her “noisy” autistic son. The writer said that Begley was “selfish” to put her child outside, as his “DREADFUL” noises scared her children. She wrote that the boy was a burden to everyone and that his family should either move or euthanise him. The woman ended up sharing the letter with CityNews Toronto, and in response, encouraged readers to treat disabled people with the same respect that they would show anyone else.

Man arrested after plugging his rice cooker into neighbour’s outlet

A man in Kawazoe, Japan, called police after discovering a rice cooker plugged into an outlet outside of his house. Conveniently enough, the outlet thief -- his neighbour -- swung by to check on his meal just as the police arrived, leading to an arrest. Turns out that he had lost his electricity after failing to pay his utility bill, and had started relying on external power sources to cook his food.

Man accidentally shoots neighbour with arrow while he is doing chores

A 51-year-old man in Hunan, China, was casually hanging his laundry when a metal arrow shot him straight through the knee. Apparently, his neighbor, who is an archery enthusiast, was practicing when an arrow flew out of control. The photo looks pretty painful, but hey, a few inches higher and things could have been much worse.

Noisy neighbours sing karaoke until 9 AM

Oli Beale, 33, from London, was so angry after his neighbours sang karaoke from 2:23 AM until 9:10 AM that the next day he pasted a giant review of each performance on his estate’s community board. Later, he posted a photo of it on Twitter, where it quickly went viral. While we feel bad for the poor guy, we can’t help but laugh at his passive-aggressive sass and numerical ratings.

Justin Bieber

The former childhood pop sensation has now transitioned into the world’s worst neighbour, having thrown eggs at a house next door to his mansion in Calabasas. Justin also raced his car around the neighbourhood, smoked weed (among other things), and even called the house’s owner anti-Semitic names. Fortunately for him, Bieber moved to another neighbourhood shortly after. We can only hope he takes things a step further and moves back to the boonies of Canada.
