I live in a high-rise condominium community, and everyone pretty much keeps to him- and herself. But, boy do I have a nosy coworker. She joined our team late last summer. She's pleasant enough, and I know she's just trying to be friendly--and that knowledge just makes me all that more uncomfortable--but every Friday it's, "Got any plans for the weekend?" and every Monday it's, "Do anything exciting over the weekend?"

I don't wish to be unfriendly, but I'm a private person and I don't particularly care to share my private life with my coworkers any more than is absolutely necessary.

Sometimes I ask people about their weekend merely because mine was so boring. LOL.

Just say you just relaxed or watched TV or whatever -- like Kelda said, that'll probably placate your co-worker. Sometimes when people ask me, I say, "Nothing, what did you do?" And that's enough to start them talking about themselves!! I'm not a very good conversationalist on Monday mornings.

I have tried being friendly to all my neighbors. They just pretty much seem to want to be left alone, so I oblige them. I'm not at home too much during the week anyway.

My backyard neighbors have always had something going on in their backyard. They had a small motor business. They've had chickens. They've had rabbits. They've had old car skeletons. They usually have hunting hounds -- beagles in a pen. ALWAYS --their dogs bark at all hours of the day or night. I have never complained to them or to the animal control. I like dogs and I know they bark.

When they had chickens -- there were mornings when one or two would be in my yard. Before I let my dogs out, I would go chase them down and catch them to put them back over the fence -- otherwise, my dogs would have killed them no doubt. Maybe not on purpose, but from chasing.

But one night when I let my dogs out, my chow went over to the back fence -- there were several people out back -- and started barking. Someone started cussing my dog. MAN. That made me mad after all I'd put up with from them. But it may have been someone visiting the neighbors; I don't know. I got her back in, but I was so hacked.

Anyway. That's my backyard neighbors.

Having just moved into this apartment, I consider myself lucky to have nice neighbors!

Will you play my record? One-track mind!

She's been crying a little more lately, but it always seems to be during the day, she's never woken me up at night or in the early AM.

I just saw this thread, and thought I would tell you about my next door neighbour......

She is one of those clean and tidy ones, and admits she has some kind of obsessive compulsive disorder.

Today she was over for a chat and we were talking about cleaning things in the house, and she told me she has her food pantry in perfect alphabetical order.....I burst out laughing and then so did she.....she said she hates that she is like that, drives her crazy and makes a lot of work for her, but she cant help it.

Then she told me, she also colour codes her coat hangers with the clothes in her wardrobe (closet)....and has to have all the same colour coat hangers together.

The great thing is she can laugh about it with me....she is a nice neighbour......
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

I often think she comes over to my place so often, because it is the complete opposite to hers, and she can relax....

You're not tempted to get her to tidy up!?  :P
