Recently, a person took to Reddit questioning her actions after repeatedly setting off her car horn whenever her neighbor captures pictures of her beloved pink Volkswagen Beetle. Here’s the full story.
She Got a Volkswagen as a Gift
The Original Poster (OP) is a 22-year-old who received a sweet little Volkswagen Beetle from her grandfather when she turned 20 and got her driving license.
She Loved It
OP was very happy that they were able to have it painted in her favorite color as her grandfather owns an auto shop.
OP says even if it stops running, she probably won’t ever sell it because it’s so cute and pink.
Her car has never really been a problem for anyone; at most, she gets compliments on how cute it is.
Her Neighbor Hated the Car
However, her neighbor does not like it.
About a week after she moved in with her roommates, her neighbor came over and told her that her car was an eyesore and damaged the neighborhood’s curb appeal.
Her Neighbor Expressed Her Thoughts
OP expressed her regret that her neighbor felt that way but added she wasn’t sure what she expected her to do.
The neighbor requested that OP park it in the garage, but since there is only room for one car and there are three of them living here, OP replied she is unable to do so.
She Gave Her Reasons
OP went on to say that it wouldn’t make sense for her to take the garage place since the person who parks their car works from home. They would have to take their car out of the driveway every morning when OP would have to leave for the office.
Then, the neighbor reluctantly agreed and went back.
Things Took a Turn
OP initially believed that was the end of it, but the neighbor later complained to the HOA.
When that attempt failed, they started posting on the neighborhood app, making up excuses to be upset with “the loud college kids across the way.”
The Neighbor Started Taking Pictures
Lately, her neighbor has been coming outside to take pictures of OP’s car that’s parked in the driveway.
When OP saw this, she pressed the key fob so the horn honked.
She Kept on Honking Whenever the Neighbor Took Pictures
The neighbor was first frightened by it, but these days it merely aggravates her to the point where she storms back inside her home.
OP did it again today when she saw her taking another picture, and as a result, the neighbor left a note in OP’s mailbox stating that she was going to report OP for targeted harassment.
She says she is being disruptive and childish.
She Made the Situation Worse?
OP’s roommates believe that OP has made the situation worse by honking and that since the neighbor isn’t actually harassing OP by taking pictures, OP is being a little juvenile in her response.
She Should Report To The Police
OP took to Reddit to ask if she was wrong for what she had done and several Redditors sided with her and said she didn’t do anything wrong. One Reddit user said that the neighbor is just being ridiculous and maybe jealous of OP’s car and that OP should complain to the police.
Another Redditor wrote, “What you should do is report her for harassment. The best thing is that you have proof and you can get more proof. You have the HOA complaint, you have the posts on the neighborhood app, next step is to get a security cam to record her taking pics of your car.”
Lastly, one Redditor accused her of being childish but also suggested reporting her neighbor to the police for harassment. After all, she has all of the evidence.
