Half of Us Have at Least One Neighbor We Wish Would Move Away
Think of all your neighbors. Is there one you’d be totally fine with never seeing again?
A new poll found half of us have at least one neighbor we’d encourage to move if there was a polite way to do it. Half of us have also considered moving ourselves just to get away from a bad neighbor.
Here are a few more not-so-neighborly stats from the survey . . .
1. People with young kids were twice as likely to say a neighbor has made them want to move. So it seems like that can be a major factor.
2. 31% of people with security cameras have caught a neighbor doing something “odd” on video.
3. There might be more bad neighbors out there than you think: 52% of people would consider sneaking into a neighbor’s yard to change, “fix,” or remove something. 24% said they’d even risk taking a dip in a neighbor’s pool or hot tub.
4. Have you ever asked for a cup of sugar, or some other ingredient? Young and old people are the most likely to do it. Around 30% of Millennials and people over 75 have asked. Just 20% of Boomers and 14% of Gen Xers said yes.
