weird neighbor

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
okay this is kinda freaking me out.... I live in a trailer park, no jokes please , and I have this VERY elderly neighbor that lives a few doors up and now that the weather is nice he is coming out, riding up and down the sidewalk on his scooter. The problem is that he has a little chihauhau that rides along with him, and my dog just happens to detest this little guy so everytime he passes by my house, Vino goes nutso now the real issue is that this guy has some sort of fascination with me so he will occassionally stop at the end of driveway, maybe I don't know, hoping that I'll come out and this causes Vino to REALLY get riled up. There was also one incident last year that I was sitting out on my front stairs in a tank top and shorts pajama set talking on the phone, don't get very good cell phone reception inside the tin can and this guy stopped at the end of my driveway and stared at me for almost an hour I finally got off the phone and went inside and he drove his little scooter up my driveway and stopped in front of my open front door- I hid in the back of the house til he left he also did the same thing while I was vaccuuming out my car one time. Any advice? I'm almost afraid to go outside and do stuff in my yard because he ALWAYS seems to turn up and stare at me!

Do you have any idea how old this man is? I know I could be really wrong about this but... I wonder if he isn't someone who's lost his wife, and his kids live far away, so he's just lonely???????

Take Vino out with you No, seriously, Tell him you're uncomforable with his presence and that you would appreciate him motoring on the other side of the street and if he gets grumpy about it, tall your landlord or the Home Owners Association about it

No, his wife is still there, and uh, they way he looks at me is not the kind of lonely I want to indulge

Don't wear any makeup, chew gum and look like a complete scruff with unkempt hair then he'll change his mind

Well, I have been out with Vino before when he's scooted by and Vino basically went after the guy's dog . I have thought of just asking him when he stops to stare if I could help him with something my other neighbor kinda had the same issues with him before she moved I'm hardly home as it is, I'd like to at least be comfortable there when I am

LOL This is getting good

He sounds like the proverbial "dirty old man." We have one living next door to us who likes to watch me and my downstairs neighbor cut the grass. Says he likes to "see women sweat." He's married, but his wife's not very nice to him and I get the impression he's lonely. Maybe that's the case with your creepy guy. You could just confront him and let him know that what he's doing bothers you. I've done that with my neighbor and, while I still find him a little creepy and strange, we actually get along pretty well and he doesn't bother me nearly as much.

I'm sorry but whenever my husband and I see one of those guys on a scooter crossing a major road, we will both bust out singing "Just some good 'ol boys" the soundtrack to Dukes of Hazzard... Don't ask my why but we do

its just so weird how he stops in front of house, but if I am out there, he doesn't say a word to me, just stares. I think he may have a touch of dementia or maybe even Alzheimer's too. The guy just creeps me out!
post #18 of 42
He sounds like he probably does have Alzheimers or something-bless his 'lil heart! I think I would be freaked out too-and would have to say something to him. BTW-how old is he??

I'm not quite sure, I'm going to guess in his 70's but he looks older, I'd say something but I don't want to hurt his feelings cause he's never actually done anything I just hate being stared at!

It's entirely possible that he has Alzheimers or something. You could try approaching him in a nice way. That's what I did with our neighbor. Then again, you don't want to encourage him.

Oh goodness, thats so funny!

I would tell him that you are very uncomfortable with him always being there -a nd if you have to tell him again, you WILL contact the authorities!

I'm glad you can out run a scooter too, by the way
post #23 of 42
I'd let him get home,then pay him and hs wife a visit.Then, in front of his wife,ask what the problem was!!

Only problem is that I'm pretty sure that his wife is a complete invalid, what I really want to know is how these two are still living on their own??
post #26 of 42
Ask him what he is looking at!!!! You don't have a third eye or something do you!!!! Or scream running around waving your hands-maybe you will freak him out!!

I agree with that!!!! or just go pay a visit to his wife.

I had a old man that lived next door to me and he would always stare at us out his window through the curtain and we'd wave to him, but he's act like he wasn't there. LOL.

not only him she will scare the neighbors LOL
post #30 of 42
Do you have any large male friends that can hang around your place in order to scare the creep enough that he will stop stalking you?

Either that, or you could act super close to another girl to make him think you don't even like guys....
