Her Neighbor Constantly Monitored Her Activities So When She Confronted Him, She Called Him a Creep

A woman lived next door to a man named William, who lived with his wife and daughters. Unfortunately, she did not enjoy being this man’s neighbor due to him being a busybody. Whilst she tolerated this for a while, she soon realized that she had to make a statement. 

Observing Social Gatherings

The woman often noticed William’s prying eyes during her gatherings with friends. “He’ll watch from the porch and out the windows”, she explained. “He’ll comment later on how many people I have over, how late I have them over, etc.”

William extended his watchful eye to the woman’s lawn maintenance routine. If her grass grew too long, he was quick to criticize her, implying that her social life was interfering with her domestic chores.

Even the cars parked on the street outside her house didn’t escape William’s notice. He appeared to have a knack for identifying her friends’ vehicles, prompting him to request her friends to relocate their cars.

Smoke Signals of Displeasure

William didn’t hold back when it came to the woman’s barbecuing sessions either. “He’ll complain about the smoke smells, and how nobody needs to be barbecuing for 3 hours”, she explained.

The Feeling of Constant Surveillance

Over time, the woman grew increasingly uncomfortable with William’s continuous scrutiny. She had tried to be accommodating in the past by making changes based on his comments but had also attempted to address her need for more privacy. Unsurprisingly, William made no changes to his surveillance. 

Confronting the Intrusion

One day, William had commented on the woman’s inability to move her trash cans promptly, and she decided enough was enough. “I want you to know, I really don’t like being watched like this… it really bothers me”, she told him. “He acted confused. I said ‘Look, I’m a woman living alone and it’s kind of unsettling’. He expressed further confusion and acted kinda defensive.”

An Appeal to Empathy

Clearly getting nowhere, the woman drew an analogy around the man and his daughters. “You’re a father of two daughters… think about if they came to you and said that a man they didn’t know was watching to see when they’re home or not”, she said. “Think of how you’d feel if she told you she was having her activities and visitors monitored… super creepy, right?!”

A Defensive Response

Unfortunately, the woman’s analogy did not resonate with William, who continued to respond defensively and become upset by her words. He claimed that the analogy she was using was completely different from their situation.

The Woman’s Perspective

“It’s NOT different”, the woman exclaimed. “That’s how I feel. I’m asking you to empathize here, to understand how it feels to be watched 24/7 and not be OK with it! How that seems to have made you feel is exactly how I feel!” The man’s only reaction was to storm off in anger.

Thankfully, the heated exchange seemed to bear fruit. William had since left the woman alone, but she couldn’t help but wonder if she had crossed a line. She questioned whether her impassioned plea for empathy had been overly provocative and whether she had overreacted.

The Internet’s Thoughts

Feeling somewhat guilty, the woman told the events from her perspective on an internet forum, asking readers whether they felt she had gone too far. Thankfully, everyone came to her defense. “Kudos to you for standing up for yourself!”, praised one commenter. “If he starts complaining again, just say ‘As I’ve already informed you, it’s none of your business’.”

He Was Exposed

Most readers agreed that the woman shouldn’t feel bad for upsetting William. “He’s angry because he knows he was being inappropriately nosy, and he didn’t expect you to call him out on it”, someone stated .”It’s none of his business, and you should simply remind him of that from now – don’t entertain him.”

File a W-2

Typical of internet fashion, one commenter couldn’t help but lighten the mood with a humorous suggestion. “You’ve done nothing wrong… are you in the US?”, they asked. “If so, send this man a W-2 because he’s been getting involved in your business for the past year.”
