A bad neighbor is one of those problems you just kind of have to deal with. There's nothing to do except wait until either they or you move, and they can be found in every kind of housing situation. Living in an apartment complex and hearing someone's extra-curricular activities through thin walls — trombone practice, shower karaoke, parties — is frustrating. Homeowners get a slight reprieve from that sort of madness, but living next door to someone who keeps throwing dirty diapers on your lawn is a phenomenal way to be constantly frustrated. Didn't Sartre say that hell is other people?
