    What's wrong with their own fucking bin?

    I would genuinely start filling up their bin with my rubbish.

    'Oh, sorry, i thought this was cool now?'

    We don't even have bins as such actually, we just dash all our bin bags out on the street the day before the binmen come. We usually have about 2-3 bags, but our scummy neighbours always have about 10, all of them open and often with shit that shouldn't even be included like high chairs and such like. I can only imagine that when we do get wheely bins in the next year or so they'll be wanting to fill up mine, and they too will be in line for the tutting of a lifetime if they try it.

    Motherfuckers used to put shit outside our house. Weird big shit.

    Left a shitty note on the little wall at the front garden it all quietened down. Though the note was defaced with angry messages.

    Basically someone putting rubbish in your bin is like being raped in prison. You can either say "Hey OK great you have no respect for me, come stretch my anus anytime."

    Or you can shank them.

    Too full. They're moving out, thankfully. But yeah, the issue is if your bin is overflowing (which ours now is) the council don't empty it. Some petty H&S ruling no doubt.

    For some reason our house is at the perfect moment for people to throw their fag ends into our wheelie bin or their tins of tennants super.

    Re. Bins.

    Next time they come over to use your bins, puff your chest out and shout "Y'know what we got here? Motherfuckin' Charlie Bronson".

    See what happens.

    Neighbour in my old place used to do this too. Our bins get emptied fortnightly so we obviously filled it each time, then they moved in.

    I just started taking their bags out, only if I needed the space though as it was fine if we had spare, stopped rats etc. Eventually they knocked on my door and complained about me removing their bags. The cheek of them.

    After a fortnight of removing their bags and leaving it on their doorstep they stopped. But childish but it worked.

    I don't understand the issue with not collecting overflowing wheely bins. I mean, what are you supposed to do, store your rotten old rubbish until it's all decomposed? I don't have a car so I can't drive to the tip, so what would my options be, short of putting it all in my neighbour's bin and potentially igniting another world war?

    Our council have intentionally given us small bins so we have to recycle more.

    That and with fortnightly bin collections our bin is perpetually overflowing. I think you have to have like ten kids to get a bigger one.

    Why don't you guys just keep your wheelie bins inside like everyone else? If it's in the corner of the lounge, it's out of the way, no one can get to it, and it's much easier throwing away your left overs when you've finished dinner.

    I live in a large, ground floor flat. There are two above me, and no basement flat. The couple that used to live above me seemed really quiet, hardly ever heard a peep from them. But late last year they moved out and a different couple moved in, with a five year old in tow.

    Every day I can now hear his screams and his thundering across the floor like a herd of elephants. It's doing my nut in. Obviously the twist in the tale is that I have two kids of my own, both younger than theirs. My eldest is very quiet but the younger one is prone to the odd meltdown.

    As a result of this, I feel the both of us just have an uneasy truce. You know, when there is no clear choice, do nothing. However one day something will start a conflict over it. Maybe I will snap and go up there to kick off, or maybe they'll put some old trainers in my bin.

    Mr T wouldn't have to put up with people messing with his bins. It's a disgrace.

    We don't get wheelie bins where I live, just the old black bin bags on the roadside and the odd recycling bags here and there. Oddly, less than half a mile away wheelie bins are aplenty.

    I think I'm living on a Dickensian road that the Council forgot many moons ago.

    I thought that was what Deckard was slightly more subtly hinting at but yes I also fully endorse it.

    In parts of the New Town in Edinburgh, people don't want to spoil the look of the old buildings by having wheelie bins so they still just put black bags out every other week. Which means every other week the seagulls descend from the heavens, and woe betide anyone who attempts to navigate those streets.

    I used to be fine with my neigbours but recently a buzzer - and I do mean what sounds like an old-timey game show style buzzer - goes off intermittently all throughout the day in one of the apartments next door.

    I do mean as in several times per hour; sometimes it buzzes only once, sometimes twice, sometimes a couple of times and sometimes it sounds like a wake up call. It's not particularly loud but unfortunately I can hear it fairly well from my bedroom.

    It mostly drives me crazy wondering what the hell is making that sound in the first place. Is this a feature of some electrical apparatus I'm unaware of or what?

    Everytime you hear it you should play canned laughter really, really loudly.

    Do you live next door to Roy Walker?

    @JoeBlade

    Hmm... A buzzing sound, you say? Like a noise that buzzes like the buzzers in gameshows? I seem to recall a PS2 quiz game that had buzzer peripherals that buzzed like the buzzers in gameshows. Perhaps they're playing that game that came with buzzing buzzer peripherals? If only I could remember what it was called...

    Is it a female neighbour by any chance?

    @billythekid Haha, that reminded me of one of my favourite TV Offal sketches:

    We live on a cal de sac, just on the bit where the road starts to circle. It's quite narrow so there's enough room to do a 3 point turn but if there's any cars parked on the pavement on our side or opposite, it makes the task rather difficult withot potentially causing damage.

    My neighbours Daughter has just passed her driving test, they live at the top point of the cal de sac and only have a single lane drive, but enough for 2 cars. We have an elderly lady that has a few members of family come to visit every Saturday (one of which just abandons his car in the middle of the road) they always park outside our house when there's ample parking all the way down the street. It irks me because they're just too bone idle to walk 20 seconds.

    Now recently the chap with the Daughter parked his car outside ours for the majority of last week for no apparent reason. On the 4th consecutive day it come to bin collection day. In a disgruntled manner put the bin in front of his car as there was no where else to put it, his car overlapped the our wall which meant I had to put the bin right in front of his car otherwise I wouldn't have been able to get out of the drive. Upon returning from work he'd moved his car to the parking side of the road, off the cal de sac.

    Yesterday his Daughter parked outside our house but with literally the front end of her car overlapping our drive, meaning my Mrs' car wouldn't get out. I've been a little bit vocal to her about it, little things like that annoy me as we do nothing to cause grievance to neighbours. This also pissed her off so she went round to ask if she could move and ask as to why they'd begin parking outside our house, without trying to come across like a petty neighbour. The Mum answered the door and said it was no problem but the handbrake had gone on the Daughters car (which was odd as it'd been there all week.

    What gets on my tits is the idleness and the disregard of other people. The street itself is narrow to be called a single lane with cars parked on the other side and as described, the cal de sac itself isn't much bigger. It's also on a single yellow line so I don't think cars should be left there for a prolonged period of time.
    Grr.
