I'm in the rare situation of knowing 2 sides of a story. A friend's daughter bought a house on a road that another friend lives on.
According to friend number one her daughter's new neighbiurs are unfriendly and stuck up.
According to friend number two the daughter and her husband had a major renovation job done that made parking on the road very difficult for a full year, trucks etc often blocked people's drives and broke the pavement outside their house making it unsafe and causing difficulties for elderly residents in particular, and the renovation work woke people up early including sometimes on Saturday mornings. Apart from the architect dropping a bottle of wine into the next door neighbour at Christmas there was no gesture made towards all the other neighbours who had been impacted eg inviting them in for a thank you drink.
They then had a series of housewarming parties that went on until the small hours and were so loud the police had to be called on one occasion and neighbours had to ring the a few times to keep it down. They gave no warning of these parties and two were midweek.
AIBU to think this is not the way to get off to a good start with new neighbours and it is unfair to call them unfriendly because they haven't welcomed her with open arms?
