Neighbor... from hell. Here in the UK, we have something called an ASBO, the intent of which is to protect the community from the anti-social behavior of an increasing contingent of lunkheads, in part by 'naming and shaming' them. Most often, said lunkheads are male, 14-25 year old NEETs and/or Chavs, who, rather than being shamed, 'wear' their ASBOs as a badge of honor.
I hasten to add that I've never had a neighbor quite this bad, though a couple have come close on memorable occasions.
Speaking of occasions, this post marks my one-year anniversary as an IF contributor!
