Every person has the right to lead their life according to themselves without anybody interfering or commenting on it. This practice however becomes arduous if you’re surrounded by people who do not match your vibe or are not compatible with your caliber. This most commonly happens with different types of people living in the same neighborhood. Disputes between neighbors routinely take place but sometimes these quarrels are taken beyond the line especially if the neighbors are too nosy.
A Reddit user brought a similar point of clash to the light, where the OP was accused of being sinful by her snoopy neighbor for being an ‘adult fiction’ writer. The matter wasn’t just about the accusation, it was taken a little too far when OP was threatened and harassed by the neighbor as the neighbor’s husband was taking too much interest in OP’s personal affairs. The infuriated neighbor repeatedly took the matter too far by taking some murky steps such as vandalizing OP’s car and front door with extremely immoral words.
The neighbor moreover tried imposing her own religious beliefs on OP for being an adult story writer and it could lead her to hell. OP did confront the neighbor and tried to stop her, but the neighbor turned a dead ear to all her pleas. Putting this in view, the author had to take a drastic step in order to ensure her safety, give the post a read what did OP do to deal with the situation!
1. OP has a little introduction to give before getting started with her story
2. There’s definitely something extremely eerie about the neighbor’s husband
3. Seems like the neighbor had been punishing OP for her own revolting insecurities, not just this, she blackmailed OP in the name of religion
4. Dalia didn’t deserve another chance because it’s almost impossible to fight bullies sometimes
Other Redditors too aren’t in the favor of Dalia being given another chance as she was clearly a bully
5. Zero shades of grey, pun unintentionally intended
The pun indeed makes a lot of sense! What a genius
6. Dalia had to be taught a lesson
7. Dalia can’t do this to you just because her husband is a creep and in fact a flirt!
8. Correction starts from within
There is no way the neighbor’s behavior can be justified for being TA out of the bitterness ignited by her insecurities and jealousy. She genuinely bullied, harassed, and made the OP feel insecure on the premises of her OWN home, which is almost unforgivable. Even after the discussion OP had with Dalia, the neighbor still vandalized OP’s car which tested her beyond limits and called for an extreme step. OP is all justified for calling the cops as she as well as her property were at risk of being harmed and had to be protected in some way.
The surrounding neighbors were too naive to have turned a blind eye to what ‘The neighbor’ had been doing. It’s pretty clear who TA is here and how calling the cops was a necessary step to be taken in order to ensure OP’s safety. Nobody has the right to judge what somebody does for a living and above all, it’s highly rude to impose your personal religious opinion on others.
