This Exchange Between Neighbors Over a Flood Light Is a Master Class in Trolling

By Mustafa Gatollari

There are a lot of ways to deal with a problem neighbor. While passive aggressive trolling might not be the most effective, it does seem like the most fun. Like this  man, who sent a series of hilarious notes and emails to an inconsiderate neighbor who wouldn't take down a very bright floodlight.

Unless you're either very fortunate or decided that hermitage is the best way of life for you, we've all had to deal with annoying or inconsiderate neighbors.

Whether they  play loud music at all hours of the night, call the cops on your house for every little thing, or get a little overzealous about their self-appointed role as the neighborhood watch, dealing with problem neighbors is a pain in the butt and often a very delicate matter.

In the interest of keeping the peace, you might do your best to be civil. That doesn't mean you'll be less annoyed that they don't realize how inconvenient their annoying behavior is for others, but it will keep things pleasant.

When you decide to confront that little bit of awkwardness and speak up about something, many people apologize and rectify their behavior.

But then there are people who don't, which is what happened when this guy decided to send his neighbor a note explaining how much of a bother their overly-bright flood light was at night.
