who are the Creepy people in your neighborhood?

(singing the Sesame Street version)

but seriously.....got any?

and...do you lock your doors when you go out for a short trip or errand?

Re: who are the Creepy people in your neighborhood?

  • I havent been there long enough, but from what I've seen they aren't any creepers. I do always, always, always lock my doors. Always. Sometimes out of habit I'll lock my H out when he takes out the trash.
  • We have an Asian gentleman across the hall from us.  All you can hear in his apartment any hour of the day is KYW.  Once I dropped my grocery store bag on the floor while fishing for my keys and a box of cereal bounced off of his door.  He came out the door with a baseball bat. **side eye**  He also sits in the hallway and fixes his bike at least once a week.

    There's also a guy on the first floor who smokes pot...constantly,,and screams in Arabic at his tv while watching Jerry Springer and The Steve Wilkos show.

  • my husband hates this too, ice!

    I lock him out mistakenly all the time.  He's from Missouri/Kansas and can't understand why we lock our doors all the time.

    Ironically, most of the crazy murders happen in Missouri and Kansas.  creeepy.

  • I always lock,  a city living must.

    Well I live down the street from  a bar so there are a variety of characters that come out of there.

    Also there is my direct next door neighbor who is a creepy PITA and also a hoarder.

  • The guy underneath me (wow, that sounds wrong lol) is a strange character.

    He called my complex and complained that we were having a party at 3am on a Wednesday Indifferent

    I can't remember the last time I saw 3 am. Luckily, the mgmt at my apt knows we are are 9 to 5'rs with no complaints in 3 years so she didn't take it seriously.

    He is super creepy and I can't wait to be out in a month!

  • Yes there is one particular guy on my street.  My dh knows him from the mums, but everytime he walks past my house ( he live across the street a couple doors up) he looks in my house.  Our front windows are unusally large, and I feel like I live in a fish bowl sometimes.

    I know people look in others windows when walking by, I do it too.  But this guy is just soooo noticable when he does it.

    I say to dh all the time, oh theres creepers, he gets annoyed.

    ETA: when I take Murphy for a walk, i usually don't lock the door, I close it though.  But any other time, the door is locked and front windows shut.

  • Yes, the guy across the street who I called the cops on after I saw him stagger to his car, back up into another car, and then peal off down the street. He got some nice visitors at his front door wearing badges.

    Our doors are always locked. We live in a 4 unit townhouse row and one of our neighbors was robbed when she left the front door unlocked because her husband was still at the bar down the street. Kids (literally 14 or 15) came in while she was asleep upstairs and stole their big screen tv, her purse and her car out of the garage. The other two houses had evidence of their locks being tampered with. I'm convinced the only reason ours was left alone is because they saw/heard our 100 lb dog.

  • There aren't any creepers that I know of.  There is a teen across the street who has some kind of learning disability.  I think maybe something on the autism spectrum.  He stands on our sidewalk and will just watch Mr.lando mow the lawn for an hour.  It's creepy, but I know he's harmless.

    I do keep my doors locked always.  Whether we are home or not.  They are only unlocked as we are going through them, or if we are just running to get something from the car.

    I want a 100lb dog. H would rather have a rifle :(

  • I think we lucked out. Everyone in our complex is pretty good. No issues.

    Eek, I don't do guns. Puppies are much more cuddly. And less lethal.
