All of our neighbors are severely nosey.
As soon as there is an issue or a problem in the city, all the people knows about it.
When the neighbor down the street got a divorce from her hubby, the people in the neighborhood gossip for weeks about it. When the police showed up to break up an confrontation between the Smith’s, I found out an hour later. When Jack ordered a new deep freezer, people talked. I did not want the neighbors gossiping about our home, expenses, or the condition of our AC unit. I wished the repairman could have parked down the street, in front of someone else’s house. As soon as he pulled into the driveway, one of our neighbors came over to the home and knocked on the door. I told Karen to go away and I told her that I had a lot of problems to deal with that morning. I did not tell her anything about the condition of the AC system. It seems clear that I needed repair on the AC since there was a repairman there at the time. I feel she was just fishing around for more information and I wasn’t going to supply her anything to gossip to the rest of the neighborhood people. The repairman was at our beach house for 3 hours. He left the home once and then he came back with parts for the a/c. I thought someone might stop by after the guy left the first time, but the rest of the neighbors stayed out of our company and did not bother myself and others at all.
