10. Request Free Promotional Material to their address.
Our first tip is very innocent and only mildly annoying. Whenever you are at a convention or somewhere that requires an email address, simply use your neighbors. As the information is often sold, it will result in a plethora of junk mail sent to their door even beyond the amount you sign up for.
9. Leave Printed Photos of Naked/Semi-dressed People in their Car
The basic model of this is simply to leave either printed pictures of naked people in their car. You can also toss in a small thumb drive with these pictures on it. In the end, you’re hoping their significant other will find it and lead to a pretty heated argument. This should only be played once. If you really want to take it to the next level, you can find some amateur photos online and replace the face of one of the people in the shot with a neighbor and leave that. This should only be done if you’re an expert at photoshop as messing up a small bit will destroy the entire gag.
8. In a house, Pour Sugar In Your Yard, Near Border
In many subdivisions, the houses are fairly close together which makes a perfect environment to add a lot of sugar near the border. I would also put some insect repellent behind the line toward our house. This will result in a lot of ants and other bugs being attracted to the yard, and then heading over to the neighbors. If you pour weedkillers or other chemicals on your property, your neighbor can claim damages, but there is no recourse if he is hit with an increase in vermin or insects.
7. Make Your House as unattractive as allowed by the home owner association.
Creating an ugly house that doesn’t violate home owners association can really help you get revenge on a neighbor. This will create an eyesore that will annoy them everytime they are outside their house.
6. Leave Trash In a Visible Place
If you can’t have livestock in your neighborhood, but want to bother them you can leave out old garbage. One man who was fighting with his neighbors in an apartment complex would leave his trash out at 5pm everyday, literally covering the door stoop. The apartment complex had a service that did collections each day, and the neighbor had to walk by the trash to get home from work.
5. Leave Smelly Trash Somewhere Close to their place
Another favorite for apartment dwellers is to leave out something that will smell foul such as a dirty diaper or rotten food. We heard one story of someone who had an adjacent third floor balcony with some loud neighbors who were likely college students. They would often go outside on the weekend and have loud parties until he got the idea of leaving some dirty diapers on his balcony. He couldn’t smell them as they were outside, and the college kids no longer wanted to be outside which greatly reduced the noise.
4. Pour Dog pheromone Sidewalk in Front of Their House
For those who don’t have pets, animal pheromones are produced when an animal is in heat. Companies sell this as a means of helping animals mate, and it can be purchased from many online sites. This however, can also have a more nefarious purpose. You can pour some of this on a sidewalk near someone’s house, and everyone that has a dog walk by will being walking or going crazy. Additionally, if they have a dog inside their home, it’s likely to react when it goes past the liquid.
3. Raise Chickens/Roosters
This is a great revenge tactic if you are upset with your whole neighborhood. Many associations do not have a policy around keeping livestock, and chickens are incredibly easy to keep. Additionally, you can have the excuse of wanting the fresh organic eggs which is a definite positive side effect. Before doing this one, you’ll want to check both with your home owners association as well as the city ordinances as you don’t want a fine as people will most certainly call on this.
2. Let Nature Do Your Bidding
A few years ago, a man in the midwest had some particularly annoying neighbors. The lived in an upscale neighborhood and were always complaining about anything that wasn’t up to code. They were incredibly particular about their home which led one of our readers with the idea of getting rye grass seed that he would drop as he did a morning jog. He didn’t give us all the details, the general idea was that each day he would just drop some grass seed on the trail near their house which would wash into their yard. Over time the weeds would build up and begin choking out the grass and annoy someone who was so detail oriented.
1.In an apartment, play a porno in a laptop near a shared wall
This tactic is perfect for apartment dwellers, and will result in full blown Armageddon. One of our readers was on the receiving end of this, and it results in an immediate showdown between the neighbors. When you want to take the nuclear option, just get a porno movie or something that sounds especially adult and play it on a laptop near a shared wall. This works best around 7pm in the evening as families are still awake, and it is before any required quiet hours. This one can lead to fights, but if there’s something you really want your neighbors to change this will lead to an immediate discussion on the topic.
