A WOMAN has vented her frustration after her neighbour painted their side of the fence without telling her, leaving her side in need of painting too.

The anonymous woman, who is from the UK, took to Mumsnet where she explained: "To be annoyed my neighbour has painted their side of their fence…without telling me? My side looks awful now."

"If they had told me they were doing it, I would have arranged to get my side done too."

"It's a totally different colour and the the top and sides are the new colour, as are all the drips on my side."

To add further fuel to the fire, she went on to say how it's not the first time that this has happened either.

"They did this a few years ago as well but it was the same colour and I still had to promptly paint my side because it looked so bad with the drips," the woman continued.


Our neighbours made our lives a misery – so we got them kicked out

"I probably said nothing at the time. I will need to get my side painted the same (neighbours choice of colour again) – I don't know whose fence it is, if anyones, it was here before we both moved here, but it maybe is theirs."

The woman went on to say how she's just annoyed because they usually have a good neighbourly relationship.

She added: "I have a family party planned at the weekend and have been getting the garden looking presentable and it now looks, well, shoddy and horrible."

The post was inundated with comments from social forum users – with very mixes reviews.

"It’s a bit of an overreaction op," wrote one. "Is it just one fence panel or an entire side of the garden? Could you ask to have the paint colour and paint your side?"

A second joked: "I wonder if you neighbour has no idea about the mess and is just super flattered that you love their colour choices so much you keep copying them so quickly after they have done their own?

Another sarcastically wrote: "How awful they didn’t consult you first to marry up dates.

It will be utterly distressing for your party guests and will ruin the evening."

Elsewhere, others had a lot more sympathy for the situation the woman has now found herself in.

"I’m absolutely gutted for you and understand the pain you must feel. Our neighbour did a similar thing and it took me weeks to reverse the damage," wrote one.

A second agreed: "Had the same issue. Our neighbours at the time painted our pine fence a deep emerald green when our side was white! We ended up tearing it down and putting a stone wall in."
