Neighborly conflict is often driven by long-lasting unresolved resentment

Although maybe not as dramatic, bad relationships between neighbors are pretty common. According to a study commissioned by Homes.com, more than a third (36 percent) of Americans have had issues with their neighbor that escalated into full-blown arguments while 1 in 4 have a long-running feud with someone living next to them.

The research also revealed that the top five reasons behind these fights are:

  • noise;
  • parking;
  • general noise;
  • trash / mess;
  • animals.

It also explains why over 40 percent of those polled go out of their way to avoid interacting with their neighbors. Even if there is no conflict, people feel they’re too busy, think their neighbors are too “weird,” or believe they might be too nosy if they strike up a conversation.

Scott Wilson, a clinical psychologist and adjunct assistant professor in the Department of Counseling and Clinical Psychology at Teachers College Columbia University, believes whenever you end up with a mix of people with unrelated lives right next to each other, the chance of conflict is pretty high.

“Neighborly conflict is probably more driven by resentment over unresolved conflicts rather than just people treating each other badly, even though this can happen,” he told NBC News.

And this Reddit post is an accurate illustration of that.
