OP initially had a positive relationship with their new neighbors. However, red flags emerged when the neighbors felt entitled to join a neighboring party uninvited. Things took a more concerning turn when they began requesting sleepovers with OP’s dog, and the mother even suggested they should have the dog on weekends due to OP’s work schedule.
The breaking point came when one of their kids accidentally scratched OP’s car, and instead of addressing the issue amicably, the neighbors suggested calling the police.
