    How would you handle the unwanted following of a creepy strange neighbor, who doesn't seem to be able to take several polite hints? What ever I do I have to live next to this person, so I need to be stealthy if possible. It's now to the point that I am afraid to go in my backyard pool, sit on my deck, mow the lawn......etc

    Plant a hedge around the borders of your property. Make sure the bushes grow at least seven feet tall.

    Hmmm, could be a touchy situation. Hopefully he's just a creepy guy, who has the hots for you, and nothing more. What sort of hints have you dropped?

    I don't think that would solve the problem at least for now but thanks, I might just do that anyway...

    It is touchy because I don't want to anger him either...And he is extremely creepy. Usually I just cut him off subtly by saying there goes my phone, and go inside but Im getting tired of being a prisoner in my home.

    I get bothered by a lot of drunks stumbling home from this scuzzy bar at the end of my street. Some are ok, but some are annoying, dirty and really smelly. If I'm gardening or doing something with kids, I usually say "I'm busy, have a nice day", or "I'm trying to do something and I can't talk, see ya around ok". Some take offense, but they move on, and tend to just nod the next time they see me. Some of the hookers can be really bothersome since they like to talk to my daughter and the other kids. They tend to be high as kites, and can get really nasty - I'm more afraid of them than some of the drunks.

    you'll have to be more specific...he's creepy because he's been caught on your property looking in your windows? Or you mean that everytime you're outside he talks to you?

    If it's the former, call the darn police.

    If it's the latter, have a prop near you....like an ipod or a magazine or your cell phone or your daughter/son. You can always tell him that your attention span is limited because you have to listen, read, pay attention, etc.

    Kind of like the way you would for the guy next to you on the airplane!

    Privacy fence. Hedges would take at least a couple of years to grow up high enough to block your yard from his view.



    of course you could always :blowup: Just Kidding!!

    this would seem to be the prob. some people just dont, or dont want to "get it". if angers him so be it. if nothing else works, split his nuts with your shoe
