    Does anyone have some really weird neighbors? Share some stories..

    My neighbors, who moved in about 3 years ago are vampires, I swear. They only come out at night, and they mow their grass and stuff then. They NEVER talk to anyone in the neighborhood. We've offered them to come over and visit plenty of times and yet they never do.

    You honestly never see them outside anymore.. and recently they built a privacy fence enclosing their whole backyard and the only time I ever see them is when they are walking back there.


    I mean, they seem like nice people.. but they don't socialize ever!!

    Why would you invite vampires over? And good fences make for great neighbors. Count your blessings![​IMG]

    I do not think that sounds too weird
    mostly because when I still lived at home that was exactly what we did
    both my parents worked very late
    I would catch public transport from school to the office
    and stay until nine or ten, do my homework, go online etc.

    we would head home around nine thirty and we hardly ever had time to pop in on our neighbours

    Sounds like my husband and I. I work all day, he works all night, and even though we love people, we both value our privacy. XD Oh, plus I have that freakishly pale skin thing going on, so I probably have been mistaken for a vampire more than once. It's either glow in the dark or sunburned for me. Just keep some garlic near the door, and you should be fine.

    We're not very social anymore, and we do sometimes do things after dark, when it's cooler. Besides, the mower has headlights! [​IMG]

    The only time I see the neighbors out here is when another car/truck has landed upside down in our woods and the flashing lights show up.

    It not that they are always working, because their cars are always there during the day and I see them when they go to get the mail and whatever.. maybe I'm the only one who thinks this is weird.. [​IMG]

    haha
    we had a car there during the day too [​IMG]

    friend was keeping it there when she went down to the mines

    but yeah that does sound a little weird
    perhaps they just love to watch TV, or work from home
    or have that condition where they cannot be exposed to sunlight

    you know, the one from that movie...

    My neighbor has a 28 year old daughter who like to hang out in a kiddie pool and her mother likes to blow bubbles to their crazy dogs. [​IMG]
