A mother was stunned by a “crazy request” her neighbor made when she demanded that her children stop riding their scooters on the sidewalk outside her house

A confused mum has vented her frustration online after her neighbor demanded that her two children stop riding their scooters on the public footpath in front of her house – despite not claiming the territory.

In a post on Mumsnet, the woman explained that her neighbor first knocked on her door and told her not to let her children drive past her house anymore, before later going straight to the woman’s daughter and demanding that she not drive on the footpath that runs past their property.

But the “craziness request” has left the mother stumped as the footpath is open to the public and doesn’t lead onto the neighbor’s property at all, meaning she has no right to tell people what to do on it and what Not .

The mother said her neighbor took the issue “really personally” because the children are often outside her home, but the mother is adamant that “you can’t ask people not to use the footpath”.

in the her postshe said: “We live on a small estate. One of my neighbors knocked on my door yesterday to ask if I could please stop my kids from riding their scooters past their house.

“Today my daughter came in to tell me that the neighbor had now asked her not to ride on the footpath in front of her house. I went outside. She asked me why my children were driving on the footpath in front of her house .I told her it’s a footpath.You are allowed on the footpath.

“I asked my daughter to avoid being right in front of her house, but my son is autistic. I told her that.

“But am I unreasonable to think that what she asked is unreasonable? You can’t ask people not to use a footpath!

“You’re not on her property, in fairness she can absolutely ask people not to be on her property but she can’t control the footpath. She has complained that they ride their scooters near their car. Your car is parked right next to the footpath.

“She’s on a corner house, so she probably has more walkways in front of her house than most. But that’s not really anyone’s fault. She really takes it personally. [She’ll say] ‘They’re in front of MY house’, but they’re on the sidewalk – they’re not looking in their windows!”

Commenters on the post were equally confused, with many branding the neighbor “miserable” or telling the mother to just ignore her complaints.

One person said: “The footpath does not belong to her, so she cannot dictate it. Tell your daughter to move on. What a pathetic neighbor.”

While another added: “For some reason there are some people who believe they have the right to live in complete silence. Just ignore these people.”

But some defended the neighbor, suggesting the noise from children constantly riding their scooters by her house was “probably annoying”.

Someone wrote: “Are they often in front of their house or just passing by to go somewhere? I imagine the noise would be annoying if they kept driving by.”

As someone else remarked, “If they’re loud and linger in front of their house or whiz by every 2 minutes, I understand their anger.”
