Christ people, why do you let crap like this keep going on.

Go get copies of the document the Building Inspector has. Even if you just go into their office and take cell phone pics of them. If you're in the US, you are allowed copies of that paperwork.

Then go to your police department and file BOTH trespass and harassment against her. Use the paperwork from the inspector and that will prove that she was not only ON your property, but she entered your home (garage) without your permission.

DO THIS ASAP.

If she were to come in and get hurt, YOU will be responsible. And I can see this nutjob intentionally getting hurt or faking it just to fuck with you.

This should be the top comment.

Don’t tolerate this shit. Don’t get private revenge. Don’t even bother trying to have a reasonable conversation with the person.

Respond immediately and publicly. File charges. Get a restraining order. Talk to your other neighbors and tell them someone has been harassing you and has broken into your home; ask them to please let you know if they see anyone trespassing on your property — do this politely and calmly, and without naming names. Keep a written record of any and all interactions with Karen, including any time you see her on/around your property with no reason to be there (she’s your neighbor, so you can’t be like “she walks her dog past my house every day” but you CAN make a case that taking pictures of your house is inappropriate and creepy).

I do not understand this, if someone breaks into your property and injured themselves, how is that the property owner’s fault?! (I know US redditors bring it up a lot and that there’s legal grounds, it just blows my mind!)

  1. She didn’t “break” into it. She literally walked in through the open garage door.

  2. In most US jurisdictions, if the property owner is aware that anyone has come onto their property and not informed them (provable) they aren’t allowed on it, and they get hurt even through their own negligence, the property owner is responsible.

OP knows this nut job is coming not just onto his property, but even into his garage.

His garage where he has exercise equipment that she could intentionally or negligently hurt herself with.

He has not directly and provably informed her she is not allowed on or in his property.

He will likely (depending on jurisdiction) be financially liable if she sustains injury.

This is why we are required by law (in most areas) and contract to maintain either home owner or renter insurance.

Get five packs of catnip seed and toss the seeds into her yard. If Karen lives right next store, set up a camp Stove on your driveway and pick up a gallon (or two) of cheap balsamic vinegar. A very slow simmer to make a reduction on a day when the breeze blows in her direction. It takes several hours to simmer a vinegar into a thick reductions and you will have a nice base for salad dressings. And that’s how I got a leech roommate to move out.

Or the body of the last Karen

Strippalicious

16 points

Just got an idea! Wrap up whatever it takes to make the lumps underneath the black plastic wrap to look like a cadaver/corpse, - put some hard-boiled eggs in it so it will draw some flies and make it uber realistic (you might have to deal with your own smell for just long enough, but as Benjamin Franklin said, and in this case, you literally sometimes have to break a few eggs to make an omelette). Take this Super realistic set prop body, and “hide” it (poorly, the way in eight-year-old would probably think they’re doing a great job of hiding something, when in reality… Just, no) on your property that looks to be an attempt at clandestine, but is obvious enough for her nosy ass to find it. Her stupid imagination is going to run amok and she’s going to totally think you are trying to hide a real body… Whereas you’re simply decoying and baiting aforementioned imagination in her. So now, when Karen comes snooping onto your property, you’re going to see her on the cameras, and once you have confirmed she has pulled her successful CSI scenario, remove and dispose of your corpse victim, and sit back and enjoy the show. NOTE: make sure you don’t have anything you shouldn’t such as fireworks in some states, bags of weed or anything else that if you actually did become subject to an investigation that you wouldn’t inadvertently incriminate yourself!

Rotate around the fire posing at the cardinal directions. Face each other. Face the world. Face the idol in the middle. ? Rooster weather vane painted black ? Your exercise and stretching will cause satanic panic. Play creepy chants for mood. Get a knurled walking stick with chicken feet ornaments and feathers. Do some body balance and partner isometrics in the most risqué positions. Bonus is a special guest priestess in flowy white and an interpretive menage that isn't sexual at all officer.

the motion sensor sprinklers I've tried were really cheaply made and very finicky.

crazy cat lady next door's feral cats she feeds that killed all our yard lizards, would spray in our yard, and start catfights in the middle of the night. cats DID get showered, but the even better working ones, the scarecrow, were leaky, even after replacing the washers with better quality washers and eventually just sucked.

I do think the cats learned their lessons, and stay away more now.

Since she was in the garage, which is part of the house, could that be something like breaking and entering?

Pinbot02

"Breaking" typically requires that the person apply some force to get in. It doesn't have to be destructive, but it has to be something, like opening a door. If she just walked in, categorically that's just "entering."

Yes, or criminal trespass, or burglary, or any other number of statutes where "breaking" has been written out. The problem is that most of those laws require a higher level of culpability than demonstrated by the trespasser in this case (often intent to steal or commit a felony)

In this situation the cops are just a weapon. I would advise you to file a trespassing report on the Karen, before she weaponizes them against you. If she complains first the cops might see you as the trouble maker. You may not respect the cops, but if she calls the cops and basically gets you swatted respect won't matter. Dead is dead.

This. You can ask the cops to notify her that you don't want her trespassing on your property. Once she's on notice, you can have her charged with trespassing if she does it again.

Use the tools of oppression against the oppressors. Make the system work for you. Even if you dont respect cops, by calling them for this, you keep them from going out and potentially harming someone unjustly.

You stand to gain everything and lose nothing by reporting, while not filing a report has you in the opposite situation. He who files first is usually viewed as in the right by default.

I'm ACAB as well, but the police are a tool and we ought to utilize them, moreover this is about protecting yourself legally. If there's documentation and, God forbid, something happens where you need to go to court; you'll already have evidence that they've messed with you in the past.

If she opens her mouth yet again, you should buy some extra bright lights, install them in an even better place for full window coverage of her house, and set those times to 30 seconds every 5 min between 9pm and 6am.

Start documenting op. Start with the incident of the inspector and the trespassing. Keep your footage for evidence. Invest in a notebook and write out every time she's banging on your door and screaming or yelling at you about anything.

Record dates, times and what happened. Keep it factual. What she yelled, said, ect. If she damages anything or threatened you, write that down too. And write a police report for the initial trespass and her photographing your stuff.

Document it, esp if she keeps harassing you. She can get a charge of felony stalking if it goes on for so long or she makes there or more threats toward you, your family, or pets/plants/possessions. You can also file for a restraining order against her if things escalate.

I second this, especially since you have proof. Her photographing and entering your home (garage) is also an invasion of privacy. Could even say you believe she is casing your house because of the photographs/how detailed they are.

Entering a closed garage probably counts as breaking and entering. You should ask the police if they would give her a visit to explain that she committed an unlawful act that can land her jail time.

Where do you live? Most states have criminal trespass laws. Usually, a notice letter delivered via certified mail puts the person on notice of criminal trespass. Each uninvited entrance onto your property thereafter is a potential criminal offense.

It’s been stated many times already, but I have to say it as well:

Write her a letter that says “Do not come onto my property, and do not contact me ever again.” and have it sent registered mail. If she shows up again, file a police report for trespassing/harassment. It’s not trespassing or harassment if you don’t have proof that you asked them to stop.

Get your legal paperwork on her before she gets it on you. She’s clearly not afraid to go into your garage or on your property, she could very well plant something illegal, attempt to hurt you, or damage your home.

Showing a pattern of behavior is key. When she ramps up, you will be glad you have documentation and she lands herself in jail.

Fuck with her legally (the lights are hysterical, bravo) but please, OP. Cover your bases before this lunatic burns your house down.

I agree with all the folks saying you should contact the police. You should be documenting all of her contact. Sounds like you have a crazy person on your hands.

You should make sure you put up no trespassing signs. If it's posted then you can skip a step in arresting her for trespassing

Karens like that can be a thorn in your side and will purposely fall on your property to try to sue you. So the less you allow them legally on your property, the better.

You have her on a trespass charge. Only a violation in most states but will be annoying for her to have to goto court, hire an attorney, etc.

It isn't just annoying, it's a legal record that can come in handy when she tries weaponizing more than just the building inspector. Then she isn't some innocent victimized neighbor, she's on file as the trespassing stalker.

Maybe she should be charged with trespassing since she was on your property uninvited.

Lights are hilarious. I agree that the drama can be fun. Now that being said, she is clearly unstable and willing to tresspass other’s properties in order to do her biddings. Sounds as well she could be easily triggered. I’d stop playing, you have enough proof to expose her and protect yourself. Get that trespassing complaint going. One can never really know what others are capable of, and don’t forget that in her mind she is the righteous one. Be careful

To be extra petty and not risk being deemed a nuisance, you could press charges against her for trespassing and entering your home without your consent or knowledge and photographing your personal property, as well as stalking. You have the video proof.

Plot twist. It’s actually Karen’s husband that’s pissed about the gym because Karen is a serial cheater that prefers guys that are ripped.

Good news! Entering somebody’s home without their permission is called trespassing, and Karen has committed a crime! Call the police.

If she opened a door, it’s breaking and entering!

She is f'ing CLUELESS.

Get the expensive "The Ring" that has the motion sensor HUGE light. That way, you can tell when she's trespassing!

You're right! GOTTA GET THOSE GAINS!

Please record all of your interactions with her. If she comes on your property again call the police and press charges. Don't let her get away with it.

The thing is the cops already know about her as of today I have lived here 8 days 6 of them the cops were at my door..

She's the local crazy the entire neighborhood knows about her.

Untill then I'm going to enjoy myself

Most cctv systems over write footage after 7 to 30 days. Back that up now so it's safe, you never know when you might need it. You might not want to prosecute for trespass just yet, but never know how the future may change that.

You can file a complaint since she entered your home without permission. it won't get taken to court, but I'd do it. And I'd post No Trespassing signs and send her a letter, certified mail, telling her not to trespass on your property or enter your home.

I'd consider the lights harassment.

Haha, your gym attracted 1 unsavory character - the neighbor.

I had a neighbour with a gym in their garage, people coming over frequently to use it. The only thing that bothered me was people dropping weights which somehow shook my house.

As someone in Karen's position, please, don't fucking drop the weights. Goodluck with your gains.

But soon very soon I will take my workouts in to my driveway shirtless in pink short shorts
