(The 'fucking' neighbours)
Yup, they are the "neighbours from hell" alright kids.
The only problem is that we don't know which one is which!
THETFORD, Vt. (AP) — A former Vermont gubernatorial candidate says she had a 60-foot by 24-foot "screen" built so she wouldn't have to see her neighbor's home.
Ruth Dwyer tells WPTZ-TV (http://bit.ly/1BLIzUu) she's lived on her farm in rural Thetford for over 40 years.
Two years ago, a new home was built across the street.
Dwyer says one of her horses was startled by a child on the neighbor's driveway, prompting her to plant cedar trees to block her view of the home. She had a temporary "screen" installed while they grow.
Zoning officials have since fined her $200 each day she doesn't have a permit for the structure, adding up to more than $15,000.
Or THIS guy:
HOBBS, N.M. (AP) -- A New Mexico man is facing charges after police say he walked into a neighbours unlocked home, stole car keys and stunned a resident who found him baking a potato and raking leaves.
Patrick Lynn Waits, 45, was arrested early Tuesday following a bizarre chain of events that confused residents of a Hobbs home, the Hobbs News-Sun reports.
A female resident awoke to noise in her kitchen, and found Waits allegedly wiping down a countertop and baking a potato in her microwave oven, police said. "She asked him what he was doing there, and he told her he was making a potato," according to a police report.
When told to leave, a criminal complaint says Waits walked outside and left his potato in the microwave.
The report said Waits then went outside to rake leaves in the front yard.
The female resident convinced Waits to stay by saying she wanted to pay him for his service, police said. The move was apparently a ploy to get Waits to stay long enough before authorities arrived, police said.
Waits was found stumbling while walking, and he slurred when he talked, officials said. (The cops think alcohol may have been a factor!!!!!)
Getting a little tipsy and making cookies could, in theory, be fun. But not so much if you get so drunk you fall asleep ... and your four kids are in the apartment at the time ... and the smoke from the burning cookies sets off a fire alarm and causes a neighbour to call 911.
That's what allegedly happened to 28-year-old Caitlin Marie Patterson yesterday, and she was arrested after firefighters responded to her Muncie, Ind., apartment around 1:30am. Firefighters found her asleep in bed and her—thankfully unharmed—kids in the living room, the Star Press reports.

And while we are on the subject of baking neighbours:
In an effort to stand out as a buyer in Portland's competitive housing market, one woman who was helping her young son land his first home offered the sellers not only two free months of rent and $26,000 over the asking price of $249,000, but a pizza a month for life.
Sure enough her offer, one of four on a 900-square-foot house that had only been on the market for three days, won out. When Donna DeNicola sarcastically offered to throw in free pizza for life, she didn't realize her joke was actually entered into the official offer. "I felt like I was in a poker game," DeNicola, owner of DeNicola's Italian Restaurant in Portland, told Fox 12.

AND FINALLY: here's one neighbour we won't have to worry about anymore!
Pakistani accused of plotting terror attacks ordered out of Canada.
Colin Perkel, The Canadian Press
Jahanzeb Malik, who will not contest the decision, is now expected to be deported within the next several weeks.
In declaring Malik inadmissible on national security grounds, Immigration and Refugee Board member Andy Laut cited evidence from an undercover RCMP officer, who had befriended the 33-year-old flooring contractor.
"The evidence provides credible and compelling reasons to find that Mr. Malik planned and intended to carry out an attack by car bombing a building in the financial district in Toronto," Laut said.
"Mr. Malik was motivated to do so by his jihadist ideology and planned to do so for the purpose of intimidating the population."
A handcuffed Malik, who was appearing for a detention review via video link from a prison in Lindsay, Ont., showed little reaction when his lawyer, Anser Farooq, gave him the news.
Farooq, who has derided the use of immigration rather than criminal proceedings in such cases, said it makes no sense to kick out someone alleged to be a dangerous terrorist.
In addition, Farooq said, the low standard of proof required in inadmissibility cases means someone can be shown the door based on questionable evidence.
"The immigration detention review and inadmissibility process is farcical in the face of the serious allegations and the standard of proof required to label someone for the rest of their life," Farooq told the Canadian Press. "The purpose fails me."
After hearing Laut's ruling, board member Harry Adamidis ordered Malik, who was arrested March 9, to stay in custody.
"There is no alternative to his detention," Adamidis said. "I find that if released on his own, he would constitute a danger to the public."
Malik has no regard for the safety and well-being of others or for the law, Adamidis said.
While the permanent resident had shown himself to be a religious zealot who believed in violence to further his beliefs, Adamidis noted there was no evidence Malik posed an imminent threat.
"He did not actually plan to bomb a specific target on a specific date," Adamidis said. "The plan was very much in the conceptual stages."
Government counsel, Jessica Lourenco, countered that Malik clearly intended to develop the plot. He had inquired about the feasibility of making bombs and the amount of explosives required, she said.
"It was a plan Mr. Malik did intend to follow through on," Lourenco said.
Malik has a valid passport and his removal will occur as soon as it can be arranged -- likely in about three weeks.
Farooq said there would be no attempt to delay the deportation.
"I'm just going to get Mr. Malik out of here just as soon as we can," the lawyer said.
In a separate case decided last month, another Pakistani man, Muhammad Aqeeq Ansari, who amassed a collection of high-power guns, was ordered out of Canada as a danger to national security. His deportation is expected at any time.
Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney praised the RCMP and Canada Border Services Agency in a statement for "this swift and diligent investigation."
