Homeowner’s ‘selfish’ act in battle against neighbours divides the internet

The owner of a large property has divided opinion after sharing their act of revenge against neighbours who were misusing their land.

The anonymous homeowner reveals that when they bought the property and extensive land five years ago they had no neighbours.

When they first moved in, they removed trees on the land to create a dirt road leading to the main road, which saved them having to drive all the way around the fields.

More recently as other homes have been built close by, the new neighbours have also been using the road and children played football in the fields, which the owners say they didn’t mind as it “wasn’t bothering me or inconveniencing me” at first.

But when neighbours had parties or gatherings, they noticed guests had began to use the fields on their land as a car park, as reported by News.com.au.

“I had multiple talks with multiple people and the results ranged from apologetic people moving their cars to aggressive people who told me to go F myself,” they said.

“I finally had enough and started getting cars towed which led to people yelling at my girlfriend in particular.”

In response, they built a large stone wall around the boundary, blocking anyone from using the fields – or the access road.

“Well multiple neighbors including the aggressive ones were all apologetic and asked me to remove the fence and how sorry they were for using it as they basically had to add 15 to 20 minutes to their travel time to work without my shortcut.

“I told them to go F themselves and to get the F of my property. However this is also impacting the nice neighbours so I am conflicted.”

After asking for advice on the situation on Reddit, opinion was divided.

One said: “It’s your property and you have every right to do what you want to it. You were not the problem, it’s the entitled a**holes who were taking advantage of your good nature.”

But others argued: “You’re well within your rights to do what you’ve done, but I don’t think you should punish the nice neighbours for the actions of a few.”

Another suggested: “Maybe put a gate up with a lock on some people could access? You don’t want your nice neighbours thinking you’re selfish.”
