A 30-year-old man residing in Florida enjoyed his evening routine of swimming in his backyard pool after a long day of work. It was a source of relaxation and comfort for him, but it wouldn’t be long until it became a source of neighborly tension and stress.
One day, while walking his dog, the man encountered a woman named Janice, who introduced herself as his new neighbor living next door with her daughter. He knew the property owner, Gary, who had recently started renting out the house.
The Routine Continues
Every evening, the man would follow his usual ritual. “I take my shirt off just wearing my swimming trunks, and go right in my pool and start swimming”, he explained.
One evening when swimming, the man realized that he was being watched. “I saw a lady sitting on her balcony just watching me swim”, he described. “I didn’t care, I just continued to mind my business swimming, followed by sitting on my chair by the pool and relaxing.”
A Surprise Visit
One evening, as he was swimming, the man heard a loud, persistent knocking on his front door. He dried himself off, put on some clothes, and opened the door to find Janice standing there.
Accusations and Misunderstandings
Janice accused the man of trying to lure her daughter and insinuated that he had sinister intentions. He tried to clarify the situation, asserting that he was simply minding his own business and enjoying his pool.
The woman responded firmly to the man. She replied, “I don’t care about all that, but listen… put some clothes on and stop swimming at your pool, we have children over here”.
A Firm Refusal
In response to Janice’s demands, the man firmly refused. He reminded her that it was his pool and his property and that he was not engaging in any inappropriate behavior.
After the exchange, the man closed the door, leaving Janice unsatisfied with his response. The tension between the two neighbors lingered, leaving the man feeling misunderstood and frustrated.
Reflecting on His Routine
Despite firmly believing that he had done nothing wrong and that Janice’s request was crazy, the man couldn’t help but become reflective. It was true that he regularly relaxed by the pool in just his swimming shorts in view of his new neighbors, but he truly felt that this was normal and perfectly appropriate behavior.
Posting on a Forum
The man wondered whether he was missing something, so he headed online to his favorite forum to post a request for opinions. To his relief, everyone supported the man and thought that Janice was acting like a lunatic. “Tell Gary he has a whack-a-doo tenant who is harassing you”, suggested one reader in response to the story.
Prepare for More
Many readers warned the man that more of the same would be likely to follow. “I’d be prepared for more of this if I were you”, one reader suggested. “Janices don’t tend to go back into the woodwork once they’ve crawled out of it.” They humorously added.
Everyone agreed that informing Gary was essential to preventing the situation from getting out of hand. “Get ahead of this before she makes more wild accusations”, another commenter wrote. “Paranoid crazy lady. You should get a camera so that you have proof that you’re not doing what she’s accusing you of and that you’re just trying to live your life.”
A Humorous Suggestion
Amongst the serious comments, one commenter had a humorous suggestion for the man that could be seen as an act of petty revenge: “There’s only one solution: start wearing the skimpiest pair of speedos that you can find”, they laughed.
Another Person Commented
“Yes! Can you get a Borat mankini?”, chuckled another.
