A 31-year-old man navigates a conflict between his sister and his friendly neighbors. Unsure if he acted in the correct manner he turned to the internet for advice. Here is what he had to say:
A Nice Family
Recently, there was a 31-year-old man who had lived in the same home for two years and had developed a friendly relationship with his neighbors. The couple next door was in their late 40s and had two children, a 10-year-old daughter and a 14-year-old son.
Grilling and Chilling
Every weekend, the family would have a small get-together on their porch, grilling out, playing music, and chatting. The gatherings were never more than 10 people, and they always ended before 10 pm. The man didn’t mind the noise and actually appreciated the neighborly atmosphere.
However, his sister, who was 27 years old, had recently moved in with him due to problems with her boyfriend. She had been complaining about the neighbor’s weekend gatherings, saying that they were annoying and disruptive. The man tried to explain that he didn’t mind the noise and that the neighbors were nice people, but his sister wouldn’t listen.
A couple of weeks ago, the neighbor approached the man and apologized for being rude. He explained that the man’s “wife” had complained about their loud music, and they both had gotten extremely annoyed by it.
He Was Angry
The man was embarrassed and angry because he didn’t have a wife, and his sister had lied to the neighbors to make them take her complaints seriously. He had already told his sister he had no issues with the neighbors making noise every weekend and it wasn’t her home so he didn’t appreciate her doing that.
She Threatened to Call the Cops
When the man confronted his sister about the lie, she refused to apologize and threatened to call the police if the neighbors continued to be disruptive. The man realized that his sister was causing unnecessary problems and told her to find somewhere else to stay if she was going to create issues with the neighbors.
His Family Were Mad
His family was upset with him for being willing to kick his sister out of the house over issues with the neighbors. They felt that he was not being a good brother by prioritizing his relationship with his neighbors over his sister’s need for a place to stay.
He Was Conflicted
The man felt conflicted. On the one hand, he didn’t want his sister to cause problems with his neighbors, who had been nothing but friendly to him. On the other hand, he understood that his sister needed a place to stay, and he didn’t want to abandon her.
He Turned to the Internet
The man was incredibly conflicted about the situation. He couldn’t speak to his family as there were all mad he kicked his sister out, so he turned to a popular internet forum for advice.
The Internet Responded
This person wrote, “She can find somewhere else to stay. Buy your neighbours a crate of beer and tell them to party on. Good neighbours should be cherished.”
More Internet Comments
Another commenter posted, “I think maybe asking your neighbors to lessen the noise wouldn’t be a big deal. But your sister overstepped and overreacted. Calling the cops over something so inconsequential is a waste of time and resources.”
A Final Comment
This last person commented with this opinion, “It’s your house. She’s a GUEST. It doesn’t matter if sHe’S FamILy. She’s a guest. She has no say in anything. If you have no problem with the neighbors and she does, that’s a sign that she shouldn’t be living there.”
