A man has taken to Reddit to vent his anger that one of his female neighbours had been sunbathing in their flat’s communal garden. The man says the woman was sunbathing “half-naked” and was making the building look “tacky”.
The 29-year-old explained: “We have been experiencing a heatwave and for the last four days, I have noticed a woman sunbathing on the grass. She brings a blanket and a book and is out there for hours, reading in a bikini top and shorts.
“On the first day, I asked her if she lived in the building and she said she did, having recently moved in. Later on, I saw her access the building with keys so I don’t think she was lying. She was literally out there from 10am till 4pm.
“Today, I saw her again and let her know that the gardens weren’t to be used in that way. She told me she was a resident (I think she rents as I know most owners in the building) and was under the impression the outdoor space is communal.”
Upon hearing the story, many Redditors had some strong opinions about the way the man handled to situation. One wrote: “Taking a picture of a woman in a bikini AND DISTRIBUTING IT is definitely more antisocial than…sunbathing where you live.”
Another fumed: “Unless there’s a specific rule that she’s breaking, you need to mind your own business. You sound like the busybody neighbour that people tend to dislike. Reporting her for being antisocial? What? Ridiculous.”
A third replied: “She’s not making lots of noise, she’s not destroying anything…what are you complaining about exactly?
“Your neighbour on the other hand has now every right to complain to her landlord because one of her creepy neighbours is harassing her and taking pictures when she’s bothering no one.”
