Neighbors played on our swing without being asked

A mother filmed her neighbor’s children playing on her family’s swing set and asked the internet if she was overreacting or if this was really strange behavior.

While crouching and hiding in her own house, she secretly films the children invading her backyard.

“Do other people’s neighbors do that? We have an open backyard, meaning there are no fences, so our neighbors just come into our backyard and literally play on our structure and don’t ask us,” she began on the now-viral topic Video.

“They just play like they fucking own it, like it’s a communal backyard just because we don’t have fences.”

“Am I crazy?”

She says her own kids would go out and play with them the first few times, so she didn’t.

But after they keep dropping by, she’s fed up.

“They have a pool. What if I just came home and I was just like that in her fucking pool, that seems so weird to me!” she mused.

Then there’s the question of liability… “What if one of them gets hurt? Then our homeowner’s insurance.” [is] the one being sued!”

She says her husband thinks she’s overreacting, so she wants to know, “Am I crazy, or is my husband just too nice?”

The mother then films the children (and their parents, who were there the whole time) walking off the swing set and back to her house.

It really is a bizarre scene.

“You must go”

“I would 100% be in this pool just to prove something,” wrote one user.

“That would drive me crazy,” said another. “I can’t believe how entitled some people are. Not even the courtesy of asking first.”

“You have to go,” someone else insisted.

Another woman stressed, “It would be one thing if I were friends with my neighbors – otherwise it would be a no from me.”

In the comments, the mother makes it clear that she doesn’t want to confront her neighbors (“they’re too nice”), but rather worries about liability.

She wrote, “You’re super nice and I don’t want any bad blood and I don’t want to be ‘that neighbor’ but I guess please don’t sue me.”

Others also encouraged the mother to go outside and speak gently to the parents and ask if they realized they were playing on a private playground and not a community playground.
