A man with a pool in his yard is upset with his neighbors who keep asking him if they can swim in the water after he’s already told them no.

In a post on Reddit, the man explained that he and his wife recently moved into the property, which already had a pool when they moved in.

But just months after settling into their new neighborhood, residents of surrounding homes began asking if they could come and use their pool – as they claim previous owners always let them take a dip whenever they did wanted to .

And although the man and his wife have said they are “private individuals” who don’t want people wandering into their yard whenever they feel like it, their neighbors don’t take no for an answer.

in the his posthe said: “My spouse and I bought a house with a pool in February. It’s a family home and we keep to ourselves. We have friends over occasionally and we enjoy having people over for food, drinks and of course pool parties now that the weather permits.

“We fit in the neighborhood, or so we thought, until neighbors from three surrounding houses got into an odd conversation with us about their expectations of using the pool for weekend and holiday pool parties.

“Apparently the owners had children before us who were friends of the neighborhood kids. The neighborhood kids and adults used the pool if they wanted to. The gate was always open and they even had their inflatables nearby and agreed to split the payment for pool maintenance.

“We told them we’re quite private people and enjoy our privacy and don’t see us giving neighbors access to our backyard whenever they want. Every time one of us walks around outside they just keep asking and trying to sell the idea of ​​having access to it. They bid money and offer to split the maintenance fees and such.

The man was recently “cornered again” trying to maintain his garden, had to step on the gas and demanded that his neighbors stop talking about the pool.

But the news still doesn’t seem to have reached his neighbors as he recently had friends over and one neighbor sarcastically said it “must be nice” that they got to enjoy the pool.

He added: “I was trying to enjoy gardening and got cornered again. I was just really emphatically telling them that they really need to stop talking about the pool every time they see us, get up and leave.

“We politely decline over and over again and we’re really fed up with the fact that the only thing they want to contact us about is the nagging and the pool and their access to it. It’s not like we’ve created a bond or anything, all the conversations are just about the pool.

“We had a party last night and as I was showing my friend the front yard my neighbor popped up and started talking about how nice it must be to be invited to enjoy the pool. Am I wrong for not wanting the neighbors to have it? losing access to my property and seriously losing patience with their expectations?”

Commenters on the Reddit post were equally stunned by the persistent actions of the neighbors, with some suggesting the man should lock his gate and put up a “keep out” sign, while others pointed out the dangers of allowing strangers onto his property.

One person said: “These are some legitimate stubborn neighbors. Also, the responsibility of having an open door for all to see. What if a kid walked in and drowned? That’s up to you. Stand your ground, I would do the same. good luck!”

While another added: “You’ll need to consider a lock on the gate if it doesn’t already have one and cameras near the gate and pool just in case. Maybe even a nice prohibition sign at the gate. If they think you’re out of town, they could help themselves swim, and that’s a big liability.

And a third wrote: “They are grown adults. They can buy their own pool if they want one.”
