These Rude and Entitled Girls Trespassed onto Her Yard and Started Insulting Her and Her Car – Was Her Hose-Down Reaction Justified?

A woman was out in her yard one day, minding her own business whilst working on repairing her car. However, she would soon receive a fright from two teenage girls, who were far from minding their own business.

It was a beautiful day and the woman didn’t have work, so she took the opportunity to address some maintenance issues that her car had, particularly addressing its leaking oil tank. She was listening to music with her headphones on, minding her own business when her tranquility was suddenly shattered.

A Startling Encounter

The woman suddenly jumped out of her skin. “I look up and am VERY startled to see two teenage girls not only in my yard but uncomfortably close to me”, she explained. “I have an exaggerated startle response due to trauma, and being caught off guard like that immediately caused me distress, but I tried very hard to remain calm.”

Taking off her earbuds, the woman approached the girls and asked politely what they needed. Their response was less than courteous, as they chatted among themselves, seemingly oblivious to her presence.

Criticizing Her Car

The woman explained that the girls’ audacious behavior included openly debating whether her car could even run, right in front of her. “You ever have someone blatantly insulting you like you literally aren’t standing right there hearing every word… it was like that”, she wrote.

An Outrageous Request

The woman couldn’t help but feel irritated at the girl’s behavior, but it was about to get even worse. To her shock, the girls’ audacity reached its peak when they asked her for a ride, despite their harsh criticism of her car.

A Firm Rejection

The woman firmly rejected the teenage girls’ request. “I told them to kick rocks”, she laughed. “I didn’t even know who these two were and this is not the kind of neighborhood to just wander onto someone else’s property without invitation.”

However, the situation took a nasty turn when the girls continued their verbal assault, making derogatory comments about her car and insinuating that she, a woman working on her own car, needed a man’s help. Their comments were not only disrespectful but also seemed to target her personally.

As the girls attempted to intimidate her with their aggressive posturing and confrontational attitude, the woman began to feel increasingly embarrassed and cornered. She knew it was important to handle the situation with maturity.

Hosing Them Down

Frustration reached its peak, so the woman decided to put an end to the ordeal. “I had just had enough and with a hose available nearby, I proceeded to hose them down”, she chuckled. “This is Florida so it was like 75 out. Anyway, that did the trick and they left immediately.”

Her Reflection

The woman had successfully made the rude girls leave, but she couldn’t help but wonder if she had gone too far. She had planned to handle the situation as maturely as possible but admitted that spraying the girls with a hose probably wasn’t the most mature choice.

The woman logged on to an online community, describing what had happened with both tinges of frustration and humor. To her relief, everyone loved her story. “That’s hilarious and awesome”, praised one reader. “They should know better to stay off other people’s property, especially in Florida.”

Everyone thought the woman’s story was hilarious. “You did absolutely nothing wrong for using a hose on them, hopefully, it knocked them down a peg or two”, one commenter defended. “However, you were in the wrong for not recording it and sharing the footage with us!”

Slightly Immature

Many readers did agree with the woman that she had acted somewhat immaturely. However, this did not stop them from defending her. “Probably shouldn’t have hosed them, really, but it’s water and they didn’t melt so no harm done”, one commenter laughed. “They were being brats on your property, and you already told them to leave, so you were well within your right.”

A 56-year-old father was happy to pay for his daughter’s wedding until she refused to invite two out of four siblings. His daughter said her soon-to-be in-laws were from a traditional country and would feel uncomfortable around anyone in a gay/ queer marriage. So she excluded her siblings, Alex and Tom, because they were both married to men, and one identified as non-binary.
