Woman calls police on neighbour because she thinks she is too young to own a house

She even demanded proof from the neighbour that she was the homeowner

A young homeowner has explained how one of her neighbours called the police on her because she thought she was too young to own a house.

The 20-year-old told the tale on the iconic Am I The Asshole subreddit, where some of the wildest stories known to humanity have been unearthed.

She explained how she had purchased the house for just $15,000 and it had previously been owned by an old man who had passed away.

The first time she encountered the age-doubting neighbour, who is apparently a woman in her 50s called Jane, she was doing some work on the garden. Jane said that it was nice to see someone doing some work on the house, to which the young woman said she had moved in and would be hosting a housewarming party.

The post continues: “She said it’s weird to throw a housewarming when I was renting. I told her I own the house. She didn’t believe me but went home.”

Then, when she was out painting the front door to her house, Jane came over “yelling that I better of had permission to paint someone else’s house.”

The woman wrote: “I again told her I own the home. She started yelling that I was too young to buy a house and she was contacting my landlord.

“I told her to stop being a busy body and leave me alone. She started demanding proof. I told her it was none of her business and to get off my property.

“She walked to the edge of her yard and called the police saying I was a squatter. When they showed up, I showed them my paperwork a [SIC] asked to trespass her from my home.

“Jane is still angry.”

The woman explained that the next day she spoke to her dad about the incident but that he said she was an “ass for making enemies with my neighbours.”

She finished the post with “AITA [am I the asshole]”

The top comment on the post has over 21,000 upvotes and sides with the poster, telling her: “Everything went perfectly in this situation because she made an ass out of herself in front of the police right away. Your dad is the asshole for having no sympathy for you that your neighbor has personality disorders/mental illness/something.”

Another user added that it was probably her young age that was making the neighbour jealous, writing: “Misery, jealousy and envy love company so be on the lookout for the Real Housewives of your neighbourhood posse she tries to put together.”

Forget all that though, the real question is how she’s buying a house for $15,000….
