I took petty revenge on my nightmare neighbour and she called the police on me – but it didn't end the way she thought | The Sun

WHEN you live close to strangers, it is sadly inevitable that disagreements could occur now and then. 

However, one woman claims her nightmare neighbour rang the police after she sent them a glitter-filled Christmas card as a revenge prank.

The woman took to Reddit to explain how she’d moved to a “nice little neighbourhood” with her husband and newborn baby.

Not long after they arrived, she started having issues with one neighbour. 

One evening, the woman’s corgi puppy had run up to the neighbour and scared her, despite being the “least terrifying animal on earth”. 

The new mum was shocked by the neighbour’s dramatic reaction, after she “shrieked” and ran inside the house “cussing”.

A few days later, a humane office arrived at her door and said they would be fined if their dog ever did it again as the neighbour was now “terrified for her safety”.

The Reddit user explained that it wasn’t the first time the neighbour has had issues with people in the area, and had previously called the police “multiple times” on someone else.

After reaching the end of her tether, the mum decided to get her revenge. 

She wrote: "I found an online website that anonymously sends people glitter bomb Holiday/Christmas cards so when you open it, it shoots glitter EVERYWHERE.

“Like a month goes by and I was wondering if this website just took my money or if she just wasn’t going to say anything about it.

"I s*** you not a cop comes to my door, asks to come inside and then busts out laughing explaining he’s here over a glitter Christmas card. 

“He tells me I made his day and that was the funniest call he’s ever ran and leaves. 

“Totally legal and great petty revenge."

Despite the prank, she clarified that she is now actually on surprisingly good terms with the neighbour.

The mum explained: “Turns out she is just a bit socially anxious so that’s why she’s gotten into it with a lot of the neighbours, but she is actually a really nice person under the Karen exterior.”

Her post has split opinion, with many thinking the glitter card was a funny response.

One said: “You're pretty bold for that.”

However, others took the neighbour’s side, with one saying: “Yeah, I don't care how well trained or ‘nice’ your dog is and I don't care what breed it is. 

“Leash your dog unless you're in a designated off leash area. 

“There are so many situations where a nice, well trained dog can get into trouble being off leash. Also, I have known many corgis who like to bite strangers.”
