Confronting Neighbor Who Demanded We Stop Talking In Garden?

“I thought she needed to know that since we were not being excessively noisy, and since it was mid-afternoon and not 1 A.M. or anything, her complaint was not very appropriate. But [my] sisters think I should have let it go.”

One user commented:

“The neighbor thought she could demand something unreasonable from you. You politely responded by saying that’s unacceptable. If [the neighbor] is sane, she learned her demand wasn’t successful and won’t try it again. If she isn’t sane then you can ignore or reiterate. Or you could escalate and tell her that she’s being a nuisance when she yells at you over the fence.”

While another commented: “I would just start talking loudly about how you hear the neighbor and her husband fighting outside all the time. She is really upset that he won’t get treatment for his erectile condition. That explains why she is so strung up all the time. But then, I don’t care about the moral high ground.”
