The problem had been simmering for years, but it had now reached a boiling point. It was time to call it quits. They were finally in a position to improve the situation after so much vindictive drama and all those police visits. She put on a big smile, rang the doorbell, and handed over the tiny piece of paper she was holding. Their lives were forever changed as a result of it. Who’d have guessed that such a small paper would turn out to be such a game-changer for them? The neighbor had no idea what was going to happen… You’ve seen it before! Revenge is a dish best served cold.
Her Dream Home
Emily Swanson and her husband had been saving for years to purchase the home of their dreams in Hawaii. It wasn’t easy to survive on a budget, but with some luck, they were able to buy a large house with five bedrooms, an oceanfront pier, and a large backyard.
Everything Was Going Well
This is the house of their dreams, and the couple is overjoyed. They had to work hard for it, after all. All was going smoothly before they met their next-door neighbor. Nothing they have ever faced before could have prepared them for this.
The Old Playset
After the couple got rid of an old playset, the first problem arose. Tanya, an older woman who liked profanity T-shirts and leopard print, was introduced to them in this way. None of them were prepared to meet a person such as Tanya.
Getting Rid Of It
She stormed over to their primary residence and informed them that they did not have the legal authority to dispose of her children’s belongings. Emily kept her cool and went on to point out two important points to their neighbor.
Reminding Her Of Two Things
To begin with, they discovered the old playset on their farm. When they inquired about it, the duplex landlord gave them the signal to get rid of it. Second, the neighbor was well aware of the property line, so it is a surprise that she bothered to do what she did.
The children were free to play in their own part of the yard, but they had to respect the room of others. Emily felt a bubble of hatred for this individual form within her after this incident…
A Huge Private Shindig
The sound of loud music suddenly awakened her! Tanya seems to have interpreted the “kids can play” invitation to suggest that she will throw a big family party on the entire lawn. This didn’t sit well with Emily.
A Huge Party
They were told to stay inside because the event was for “friends and family only.” Emily was enraged. This wasn’t even close to the worst of it. If something similar happened to you, we’re pretty sure you’d feel the same way Emily did.
Emily and her husband were in the living room at the time. From there, the noise was the quietest. Suddenly, one of the inebriated partygoers walked in! Emily informed the stranger that the house he was searching for was located on the opposite side of the street.
He then told her, “Tanya said she owned the whole property and to use whichever bathroom.” Emily was taken aback by what he had just said. “Um… What?” she said. At this point, Emily was enraged after hearing what the drunk guest have told her.
She Could Not Believe It
Tanya charged in a whirlwind of cheap perfume and leopard print, much to her surprise. Emily had the audacity to make her neighbor look bad in front of her guests, the neighbor yelled. Emily couldn’t believe what was happening, especially after what Tanya had said.
Don’t Make Her Look Bad
She also claimed that not allowing visitors to use the toilet for a short period of time was impolite. Tanya, on the other hand, didn’t stop there. She reprimanded the pair, telling them that they didn’t deserve such a big room to themselves. She wasn’t done yet, by the way.
They Wanted To Jazz It Up
Her boldness astounded the pair. They intended to teach her something. In any case, Emily and her husband decided to add a fire pit and an outdoor kitchen to their patio.
She Can Be Heard Over The Noise
It wouldn’t be cheap, but the laborers were happy to be compensated for their skills. Emily was moving some things around the patio when she heard a strange noise. Tanya could be heard over the loud noise of the ongoing construction.
Telling Her Their Plans
“What’s going on here?” asked the neighbor. Emily went through all of the upgrades they were doing. Tanya’s eyes brightened as she listened to this. She was obviously working on a plan of her own. What was she about to do? Let’s find out.
Party In The Yard
Emily had no idea that her next-door neighbor was organizing a new event in the yard that they “shared” at the time. She was too preoccupied with the construction to notice what was going on and what Tanya was up to.
Putting Up A Fence
Emily had been sipping her Cortado and watching the staff build a fence earlier in the day. It had been a quiet morning before she overheard another adult tantrum from her current place. Can you guess what it is that she heard?
Tanya was enraged by the fence that Emily had put out on their “shared” space. Emily exchanged a glance with her husband. This was obviously going to be a problem with this noisy neighbor. However, not long after that, a new character entered the scene.
Her Boyfriend Billy
Billy was Tanya’s boyfriend at the time. He began throwing his beer cans and cigarette butts over the fence and into Emily’s yard right away. He said he was doing this because they were “disrespecting his woman.” Which, as we all know, wasn’t exactly the case.
They were truly nefarious next-door neighbors. They still had noisy fights and late-night parties, which didn’t help matters. Billy was clearly siding with his girlfriend in this case. If we were in Emily’s case, we would have no idea how we would deal with something like this.
Trouble Was Brewing
You should also remember that Billy owned a 30-inch fishing boat. The issue was that they only had 15 inches of dockage on their side of the house. Since Emily was paying more for their side of the duplex, it was only reasonable that they would have more docking space.
To be exact, they had 150 inches. Emily and her husband rented out the extra rooms to augment their income. Renters can secure their boats to the property line and make monthly payments. This did not go well with Tanya and Billy.
Something Was Wrong
Emily was taken aback when she saw a new review for renting out docking slots on the web. It was particularly unpleasant. The couple had been rude to them, according to the guy.
She Finally Found Out
Emily and her husband were accused of breaking a verbal agreement to continue using the docking room for another three months. She was able to figure out what was going on after a quick phone call.
They Reported It To The Cops
It was time to call it quits. She was enraged. When they were gone, Tanya and Billy must have claimed to be them. They requested that the client remove the boat, after which he parked his own fishing boat in the same place.
Emily couldn’t believe her eyes when she saw what she did. This time, she intended to involve the cops. It was starting to get out of hand. She just can’t stand it any longer. She had to do something.
The Couple Fought Back
If Billy and Tanya didn’t want their boat to be “towed,” the cops told them to drive it right away. The couple screamed and said it was on their property. Which, as we all know, is obviously a big lie.
No One Owns It
Furthermore, the two of them went so far as to call Emily a liar. They then attempted a new strategy. In a desperate attempt to have things go their way, they went as for as to claim that no one “could own the water.”
Starting To Feel Helpless
They would have had lovely mornings eating fruit salad and gazing at the ocean if it hadn’t been for the neighbors. With the cigarette butts and trash on the other side of the fence, it was unlikely to have any peaceful time.
It’s All Ruined
Worse, the weekly get-togethers were even more raucous. The naughty kids developed a new hobby of throwing fireworks at her ships. It was lucky that fate had finally caught up with him.
It Went On And On
The problem lasted not only months but years. Thanks to the dreadful neighbor, the police even committed the address to memory. Emily was beginning to lose hope that they would have any peaceful time again.
She Doesn’t Know What To Do Next
Tanya and Billy were turning their little corner of heaven into hell. She started to wonder if they should all leave and forget about all that had happened because they are starting to think that they have no chance of driving the annoying neighbor away.
Karma Is Finally Here
When the cops got involved, they still took her side, but it didn’t matter. It felt like they were wasting their time and effort when they had to spend their money. Stress had become an inextricable part of their lives.
When the landlord approached Emily with a new opportunity, Emily was on the verge of giving up. She must have been intrigued by it because she delayed leaving and refused to give up.
A Flicker Of Hope
The older man was fed up with the housing market and refused to work as a landlord any longer. Dealing with the “crazy girl that never shuts her pie hole” was particularly aggravating to him. It was clear that the landlord was also getting tired of this particular woman.
Emily couldn’t believe her ears when she heard what she was saying. With the flick of a finger, he presented her with a once-in-a-lifetime chance to solve all of their problems. She could not believe how easy it would be!
Offering To Sell It To Them
He was in desperate need of a buyer for the remaining half of the house. His first thought was to ask Emily and her husband if they were involved. Buying the house was an excellent choice for Emily because of various reasons.
For one thing, her elderly parents were able to join them in their home. She was relieved that the operation had gone without a hitch. As soon as the paperwork was done, she got to work on her strategy.
They Got Ready
They weren’t complete morons. They formed an LLC and double-checked the end of the lease on the duplex’s other side before the big day. Emily and her husband also prepared the notice papers.
She knocked on Tanya’s door with delight, handed her the letter, and demanded the rent. Emily must have gotten a kick out of the couple’s expression after seeing her handing them the letter.
She Was Not Alone
Tanya had also moved in with her own mother, much to her surprise. Her daughter’s actions mortified the older woman. In fact, Tanya’s mother expressed regret for what had occurred over the previous few years.
Her Mother Was There
She remarked to Emily, “I didn’t raise my daughter to live like this!” Tanya’s face flushed with embarrassment and frustration as she began to realize what had occurred. When she saw what had just happened, she was perplexed.
Her New Friend
Emily had no idea she would’ve been able to form such an ally all this time. Thanks to the elderly lady, they were able to keep the unity in the duplex. But apart from that, she was an enjoyable person to be around.
All At Peace
Every Wednesday evening, Emily and the old lady will bake and drink. Tanya will be enraged throughout the entire process. She’d be upset, of course, and there’s nothing she could do about it.
It Was A Kind Gesture
Emily as well as her husband were not at all devious. She didn’t mind if they stayed at the same price until they could find another place to live.
Enjoyed Their Time Together
Her emotions for the older woman grew significantly stronger. No matter how quick or dramatic the disconnection, Emily would find it hard to say farewell to her and their friendship.
Enjoying Paradise At Long Last
After several time had passed, they finally left the house. Their possessions were packed into moving trucks and driven away. Tanya, on the other side, had no plans to go quietly. She smuggled another poisonous letter into the mailbox.
All Worth It
It was even more fun because she did it on animal-print paper! Emily took a deep breath and exhaled a sense of relief. She was finally able to unwind. She could fully enjoy her own slice of heaven, years after moving in.
The journey had taken a very long time, and it had been well worth waiting. She must have been grateful with herself for not giving up and persevering until she arrived at this point. After what had went down, there was no question that all those years of tolerating Tanya hadn’t been in vain.
