Close Your Blinds People!
I was flipping though the Daily Mail and found some great stats on what goes on in your neighborhood and Mr. Rogers would not be impressed.
According to the story. If you have neighbors on your right and on your left, statistically one of them is spying on you, scary thought that I would bore them to death.
We live in the sleepy hollow of Lynx Ridge and not much goes on there except from the occasional beer pong session in the back yard on a hot day, sad to think that would be of interest.
In the survey, over half of the people when asked said they figure out some way to spy on the person next to them to see how they stack up.
About 33% (and this might be my wife Shelley) spy on the neighbor when their house goes on the market rather than being blatant enough to go to the open house for free cookies so they just check out the pictures on line.
10 percent do the old Gladys Kravitz move of staring out the window as they come and go, also pretty boring in my neighborhood because I am carrying a dog poop bag, not a habit just a necessity.
This is where it really gets weird 6% of people snoop around the entire house when their neighbors ask them to look after the house when they are away on vacation, that’s why we have an alarm, nobody is going to know about my dust balls under the couch.
And believe it or not 3% get neighbors to invite them over so they can have a snoop around your shack, maybe that’s why we have no friends probably because they have seen our housekeeping.
The best part of the survey is that people are so shallow one in ten will redecorate after they have been through your house just to keep up, all I can say is run and lock the doors people.
