A GARDENER has revealed her good deed for her neighbor’s new girlfriend turned into a disaster for her herbs.
The Redditor grows plants in the corner of her yard and said that neighbors sometimes snip sprigs off when they’re cooking.
She offered some herbs to her neighbor’s girlfriend out of politeness when she was out planting the seeds.
But weeks later, she noticed that the woman had cut sprigs off without asking permission.
The Redditor said: “I was livid. My BF went over and explained that it was too soon, the plants were tiny, not ready etc. He’s much nicer than I am.
“The neighbor apologized profusely and said the GF wouldn’t be going anywhere near the herbs until I specifically allow it.”
Then, the gardener spotted the woman cutting at the herbs using a pair of scissors.
The Redditor claimed that one of her plants had just three leaves remaining on it.
She shouted at her neighbor’s partner: “Please get your herbs at the store from now on.”
She revealed that the woman was left red-faced as she went back into the house.
The Redditor said: “Hopefully she’s embarrassed herself enough to stay away.”
Her other neighbor revealed that he has planned to buy some parsley and basil seedlings to put out of the woman’s reach.
Social media users said the gardener should make her neighbors show snipping permits before granting them permission to take from her garden.
And, others branded the neighbor’s girlfriend “entitled”.
One said they would’ve lost their mind if their neighbor started snipping their herbs without asking for permission first.
Meanwhile, a dad has revealed how he took drastic action to get rid of his neighbor’s garden gnome that was terrifying his five-year-old son.
The man explained in a Reddit thread that his kid would burst into tears at the sight of the ornament.
He was forced to take action into his own hands as his neighbor Cindy refused to remove the gnome after being embroiled in a row.
Days later, the man’s son was playing with a ball but it ended up in his garden.
The dad moved the gnome behind some flower bushes as he retrieved the ball.
He said: “Cindy came out to water the garden, noticed the gnome was gone, and demanded to know where it was.”
He claimed that Cindy had threatened to call the cops over the gnome.
The dad was slammed online as one person said: “You have a responsibility as a parent to explain irrational fears to your child. Not steal from your neighbors.”
And, another posted: “Instead of having a teachable moment with your son, you chose to steal a neighbor’s gnome. Be a better father.”
And, a mom took to the forum Mumsnet to vent about her neighbor’s kids who have ruined her garden while playing football.
She claimed that the kids have damaged her pots and plants, and enter her garden to retrieve their ball when she’s not home.
She raged: “I am furious and upset. It feels like a huge breach of trust.”
